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.

I grew up on the outskirts of the Tri-Cities, after my parents moved us from Southern California, to my mom's hometown, because my dad thought it was a better place to raise children. I have fond memories of growing up in the country, near the river.
After getting married, I moved to my husband's hometown of Melbourne, Australia. I worked for an advertising company that specialized in real estate and fell in love with the behind-the-scenes aspects of real estate. After eight years, we moved back to the Tri-Cities to be closer to my aging parents, and because I felt -- like my father -- that it was a great place to raise children.
I worked for The Real Estate Book, Tri-Cities, for over five years, which is how I first met Cari, and when the opportunity came up to work for her, it was a no-brainer. Cari is the epitome of joy and clearly loves what she does and does an extraordinary job for her clients, which is why she's so successful. My role is to support her and other agents on our growing team, to free them up to do what they do best. I look forward to being in on the ground floor of the Cari McGee Real Estate Team!
I began helping businesses of all sizes succeed online in the late 1990s, with a specialty in SEO, local search marketing, content development and social media. I've consulted for companies as big as Target.com and as small as a mom and pop selling handcrafted wooden pens from their garage.
I've been surrounded by real estate agents my whole life. My dad opened his real estate brokerage in the early 1950s and stayed in business for more than 50 years. My sister also runs her own real estate brokerage. And my wife ... obviously ... is an agent, too.
I love sunsets, snorkeling and sea turtles ... all of which explains why Hawaii is my favorite vacation destination. I love just about all sports. I love big, juicy cheeseburgers and ice cream. With M&Ms. The ice cream, that is. Not the cheeseburgers.
