New Homes Currently Building in Willowbrook Reserve

The new lots behind Willowbrook are now open for reservation. As much as we hate to see this natural habitat area developed, we’re hoping to get like-minded conservationists into the neighborhood, who will help protect the wildlife refuge that is directly adjacent!

We met up with the builder’s agent today so we have current information on pricing and lots. The builder DOES pay buyer’s agents, so if you’d like help navigating the building process with someone who is representing YOUR interests, it’s free for you to have us represent you. We can help you reserve a lot and navigate the building process!

This subdivision backs up to Amon Basin wildlife preserve, so hiking trails and beaver ponds are right out your back door. 

These lots will go fast, please call Nick or Valerie (509)845-4570 or (509) 528-1366 if you’d like pricing and floorplan info. Plans range from the $300,000’s to $400,000’s including lot price. A lot reservation is $5000 and building is expected to begin in April.

  • Top 10 “Best place to raise a family,”
  • #2 “Best city on the rise,” -Estately List
  • Top 10 “Best place for real estate investment,” -Nerd Wallet
  • Top 10 “Best place to live,”

Merry Christmas 2016 and Happy New Year!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! We began this journey in 2010 with a leap of faith, a hard work ethic, solid educational & skill foundations, a passion for real estate, and a serious pledge to take care of our customers. Each year our business has grown as we’ve helped more clients buy, sell, or build, and 2016 was no exception. We’ve worked hard to help our buyers navigate a fast-paced seller’s market, invested in targeted advertising for sellers, and improved our skills with continuing education (including Nick who earned his Managing Broker license)!

Thank you to the team of professionals who work alongside us to make this job possible–loan officers, title companies, closing agents, inspectors, appraisers, builders, other Realtors, and our locally owned brokerage. Last but not least, a huge thank you to the buyers and sellers we’ve had the privilege to represent, and to the many friends & neighbors who’ve given referrals–we couldn’t do this without you!

Move Over Seattle, Tri-Cities is Hottest NW Housing Market!


“Move over Seattle, Tri-Cities is hottest NW housing market” was the headline of Sunday’s Tri-City Herald. This area has been named the 18th hottest in the U.S. and the only area in the Pacific Northwest to qualify for the index, which is based on # of days on market and # of listing views on The article states “The median Tri-City home has been on the market for just 40 days. A normal market is about 72 days,” and “Since January, the median price of a local home has climbed about 4%, to $234,000.” This price increase is the result of low supply and high demand, and homes for sale are currently in high demand in our seller’s market.

We’ve found the fastest-moving price range to be the under-$200,000 range. In this price range we’ve been able to help buyers by watching new listings come on the market, making appointments to see the home that day, and writing up offers within the hour when we found the right house for the buyer. The saying “if you have to sleep on it, you won’t sleep in it” has definitely applied in this price range!

The advantage to using our team of two agents is that one of us can take care of other business or family obligations, ensuring the other is available for buyers who need to see a house immediately or risk losing the opportunity for that house to become their home. In several instances this spring/summer, we were able to gain a competitive edge and win first-day-on-market multiple offer situations by working as a team when time was of the essence. We also help potential buyers find homes the day they hit the market by setting them up to receive emails directly from the MLS when a home that falls within their criteria range is listed.

Rising prices means your home may be worth more than you think, and since buyers are still able to take advantage of low interest rates, there has not been a better time to sell a Tri-Cities home in the past 10 years. Zillow’s “Zestimate” and county assessor property values are usually incorrect, so give us a call at (509)845-4570 for assistance. If you’re a seller we’ll provide you with a free market analysis of current prices in your neighborhood, and if you’re a potential buyer we’ll set you up to receive no-obligation emails directly from the MLS when homes hit the market.
