Buyers getting “some relief” as key indicators point to strong summer for housing market

KIRKLAND, Washington (July 8, 2019) – Inventory, pending sales and prices all increased during June
compared to a year ago, according to the latest report from Northwest Multiple Listing Service. The same
report, which covers 23 counties in Washington state, shows year-over-year drops area-wide in both the
volume of new listings and closed sales.

Hello All, 

This is a great cause that is easy to support. If you would like to help, a box of crayons (or more) will do the trick! Please see below for the details, every box helps- I really appreciate your support!

Our goal this year is to collect 250,000 Crayons for Children's Hospital!

The Cascade Team is once again hosting Project Crayon Drive this month!  For the young who find themselves at Seattle Children’s Hospital, sometimes the simple things like a coloring book and a few crayons can be as soothing as the trained staff and smiling doctors. Yet, something as simple as crayons often goes overlooked.

Each year, Children’s Hospital goes through over 240,000 crayons, but each child only gets a couple to use.

And that’s where The

In January, I had the opportunity to attend and become a member of the organization "100 Women Who Care GSV", what I did not know at the time was how much I would come to love what these ladies are all about! When my friend Adrianne invited me, it seemed like a simple outing with friends to support local organizations in the valley, all while having a glass of wine. As we walked in the door of Sigillo, we signed in, got name tags, grabbed a seat, a glass of Malbec and chatted with the ladies at our table. It wasn't long before the event was underway and there were two lovely ladies at the podium discussing what the night would hold... For me, this is when the magic began, it turns out that by the end of the night this room of ladies would all vote and

I met Erika a few years ago at Piccola Wine Cellars when she was hosting a jewelry show. I immediately fell in love with her organic style, but in particular, I was drawn to the most beautiful aquamarine ancient ring. I later told my husband Ben about this stunning ring and months later I became the happy recipient of this gem at Christmas! So, it is with great excitement that I introduce you to Erika Laureano and her brand-new Design Studio filled with handcrafted jewelry. Upon entering this chic downtown NB studio,  you will notice Erika's art draping the walls and her cutting edge jewelry designs that fill the room showcase her unique one of a kind style. 

Erika is all about supporting and growing local businesses and has been not only

As the holidays are approaching “The Heart of North Bend” will be collecting and promoting the sharing of canned goods and other food items with our local food banks! I know that the holiday hustle and bustle has already begun in our home… literally I had to do a double take when I realized on Monday that Thanksgiving was next week! As I thumbed through cookbooks and planned all of the delicious food that we will share with family, I reveled in the closeness that our loved ones will provide around the dinner table. While making my shopping list, I was reminded that holidays can be hard and often lack cheer for those in need.

This week I also came across this little clip on Goalcast. Here is the link, it is only 4 minutes and well worth it! My take

Today "For the Love North Bend", will give you TWO amazing reasons why you don't have to go far to get GREAT service! I am always looking for ways to keep it local and not get on I-90 and these two small businesses offer just that! 

This morning, I got to have coffee with Blake from Blake's Mobile Detail and afterwards I got to see what this incredibly convenient service was all about. As I worked from home, Blake tended to my car in my driveway and now it looks just a beautiful as the day I bought it. This saved me travel time, money $$ and time waiting for my car to get detailed at the dealership (which is where I have gone in the past for this service).  We all know this time of year it is hard to keep the exterior clean, so I went for the full

"For the love of North Bend" is a blog series that will highlight places, people, businesses, and the many reasons that make this town so great! When I decided that I wanted to write this blog, I made a few posts on local social media sites to get my creative juices flowing, the response was overwhelming! It turns out the reasons why we LOVE this town are immense and all over the board. I started to compile eveyone's loves and it seemed the material might lend itself better to a book (luckily Bob Antone and his wife are doing that for us:). With all of that said, I thought I might start with sharing a place to meet, sip, gather and share. 

It was really hard to choose a starting point but after lots of consideration I landed on Pioneer Coffee

KIRKLAND, Washington (October 4, 2018) - Housing inventory continued to improve during September while the pace of sales slowed in many counties served by Northwest Multiple Listing Service.

A new report from Northwest MLS shows double-digit increases in inventory in several of the 23 counties it serves, led by
