New Year, New Blog Use

OK, I admit it, I don’t do well writing about real estate.  Some say I come across snotty, a little bit snarky, even condescending.  And of course, that’s not what I’m trying to do.  I like putting out stat posts every once in while, when the stats come out.  But posting once or twice a month does not help Google find me. See, I’ve been trying to make a square peg (writing about real estate) fit in a round hole (writing on my blog).

When I was a kid, I wanted to write my own column, like Jack Smith in the LA Times.  My best friend and her mom enjoyed what I wrote so much they said I could be the next Erma Bombeck.  I posted a note on Facebook almost two years ago as part of a meme – 25 Random Things About Me, which was really well received.  When blogging took off it occurred to me that each blogger had his or her own column.  Hmmmm…

It finally hit me, I’d rather write what I like to write about, and if people find my blog, and like what they read, then maybe they’ll want to work with me in a real estate transaction.  Usually people work with me because they like me, anyway, not because I’ve been spouting off real estate info on my blog every day.

So now what you’ll find when you come to my blog, is my writings about life and living…here in the Tri-Cities.  Real estate will be included, because it is part of a my life.  I’m involved with it almost every day, and often for more than eight of those hours in the day.  But it will not be the sole focus of the blog, despite its name.

About The Author
Cari McGee

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.
