A couple sales which were just waiting to close finally did this week.  Kudos to Dani, Emma, Michelle, Paul and Tiffany, Keith and Sonja, and Pat for hanging in there and not making any rash decisions about moving and staying and rescinding, etc.  From the minute I got into this business my least favorite aspect is that I can’t control every aspect of it.  Heavy sigh.

And another high price gas casualty – moving companies.  Calling on old friends and buying pizza for everyone is much cheaper than paying a company to move you.

West Richland is growing up, and it might be time the residents have their own ambulance service, as per this article in the Herald.

Heck, the whole area is growing up – even Sen. Murray is paying attention to us.

And this week contained some huge news about Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae, government-sponsored enterprises that loan tons of money for houses.  IF they fail, and IF our beloved government bails them out, then interest rates might go back up to where they were when my parents bought the house where I grew up – double digits, for crying out loud. It might happen, it might not, but this week brought all kinds of stock fears – read more here, here, and here.  The last ‘here’ links to something written in 2003, and eerily expresses concern over the situation we might be embroiled in now.

Finally, at a loss trying to find Wi-Fi so you can check things out online?  Wear this shirt and then just look down!

My husband and I came to the Tri-Cities in 1994, and we thought it would be a temporary stop on our way to larger cities. He was a television sports anchor at the time, and we planned to go wherever the "next step up" took us. Twenty-plus years later, we're still here and we've loved every minute of it! We have two children now, and we've found the Tri-Cities area is a wonderful place to raise a family. It's a great place to do outdoorsy things -- I like to hike Badger Mountain or run along the river path. I also love reading ... by a cozy fire in the winter or a beautiful picture window in the summer (with the A/C on!). I've been a licensed Realtor since 2004. I earned my managing broker's license in 2016, which means I can run my own brokerage, or create a team of real estate agents and supervise them, which is exactly what I did when I formed the Cari McGee Real Estate Team in 2018! We have administrative and marketing personnel, as well as additional agents to serve you. I became a director of the Tri-Cities Association of Realtors Board of Directors in 2016, became Secretary/Treasurer of the organization, and was elected to Vice President in 2019.
