Where is everybody coming from?

I am asked this question a lot.  I’m asked it most often by people who have spent most of their lives in the Tri-Cities, and they don’t understand why we’ve suddenly been ‘discovered’.  There is so much development going on, and we still have land readily available, no wonder people are moving here.  We had a net gain of 5,275 people in Benton County over the period of 2000-2005.  Franklin County experienced a net gain of 4,099 people over the same period of time.  King County LOST over 49,000 people, but it appears as if some moved to Snohomish (gained over 11,000 people) or Pierce (over 15,000 people moved in) counties.  It’s really interesting to see the ebb and flow of the state’s population centers.  The map in the link can take you to other states, btw.  Have fun looking!

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.
