On Tuesday Dennis and I were asked to participate on a round table discussion of the real estate market on “The Money Thing,” a local talk radio show that airs on Tuesdays from 12-2pm on 1150AM (KKNW). Neither of us had ever been on the radio before, but that would never keep us from offering our opinion! :) The show is hosted by Howard Bono, a mortgage originator and owner of Old West Mortgage in Everett. We had only met Howard once before, but that meeting prompted enough thought that he asked us to come on the radio program to share our ideas with his audience.


The discussion was lively, and was largely in reference to the short sale processs, what we anticipated for our local market over the next 12-18 months, and how we counsel buyers in times like these. The entire program segment is available on Howard’s website,, but I’ve posted just our segment below. Thanks to Howard for having us – and thanks to Jerry Jaz for taking the time to take in-studio pics.

Everybody needs a makeover from time to time, and although our website had evolved much over the past three years, the home page hadn’t changed at all, and didn’t accurately reflect the true scope of all the resources that we’ve come to provide at Last week we unveiled a new landing page to our site that we think better reflects our team, our services, and our current real estate market. From the home page users can now go directly to a search for bank owned properties, short sale properties, and our featured new construction properties.

Much like our team, our home page is now unique, resourceful, and memorable. Let us know what you think of the change in our comments! OUR NEW HOME PAGE
