Love thy neighbor

It’s snowing in the Tri-Cities! And it’s really coming down. Two weeks to the day when it could have been a White Christmas.  Ah, well…

I was listening to Delilah on the radio (don’t make fun of me, she’s so soothing!) a few weeks ago and someone wrote a letter recounting her favorite Christmas memory.  The woman grew up in southern California and as a child, her dad used to do something pretty special every Christmas.  He’d awaken at some crazy hour (after a night, I’m sure, of assembling bicycles and dollhouses and race tracks) and drive to the mountains.  He’d load the back of his pick-up with snow and drive home and unshovel it onto the front yard.  Every Christmas he created a magical playland for his children and all the neighborhood kids.  They’d build snowmen and have snowball fights and then everyone would troop home to open their presents.  But what a gift they’d already received!

Now every time I see snow I think of that man and the joy he brought to his community.  I think that’s what being a good nieghbor is about.

And that’s the kind of thing a Realtor wouldn’t necessarily know about and that’s one of the many reasons I can’t tell you what is a good neighborhood and what isn’t. 

There are legal ramifications to what I can and can’t say, too and one of my favorite bloggers addressed this recently – Theresa Boardman at St. Paul Real Estate

Here’s the best(or worst, depending on your perspective) part – it snows in EVERY neighborhood, good, bad and in between.

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.
