2023 | Week 1

52 Hikes | 52 Homes

“You are never too old to set a new goal or dream a new dream.”

This is WEEK at a GLANCE - a glance at 52 weeks of my PNW adventures!

Powered by passion and inspired by the Northwest, join me as I journey through life as an entrepreneur on a mission to make a difference in the lives of others, and in our community… one step at a time, one week at a time.


My first hike of the year was to Twin Falls - a popular trail located just outside of North Bend. I'm sure by these photos you can see why, but the truth is - these don't even do it justice. I must have said "wow" like 100 times while on my adventure here. I have been here before but it gets me every time. The path is moderate in elevation and follows the river almost the entire way. There are a few switchbacks that take you up and over a ridge, which offers great views, and then you head back down to continue hiking alongside the vibrant teal water until you reach a staircase leading down to the most incredible view of the falls. The platform makes me a little nervous but the vantage point is unreal. I took several photos and videos and then made my way up the stairs and to the bridge - which overlooks the rushing falls and the valley below. If you haven't been to Twin Falls yet - add it to your bucket list! This is definitely a place you need to see!




This week I went on a few tours with my buyers. First, I showed my clients a stunning new construction home that is located in Snohomish. It was flawless and checked all of their boxes - all except for one. It was just a little too far on the outskirts of town so we decided to keep looking. We then went to a smaller, remodeled home in Woodinville and although this was closer to modern conveniences, they would like a little more space. We are going to continue our search in hopes to find the perfect home in the ideal location!

Next, I showed another one of my clients and his family a home located in Redmond.

The home needed a lot of work compared to the ones that we have seen thus far, but the location was amazing. He decided that he would like to expand his search to see if we can find more options within their desired criteria. I am looking forward to helping this family find the home of their dreams and will be there to help them every step of the way!

Lastly, I toured a family twice through a townhome in Bothell and they absolutely LOVED it! They are currently working with their lender to get preapproved and then we are going to meet to discuss the offer details. I hosted an open house at this townhome and they were in need of a broker to represent them with their offer. I am always happy to help!

In addition to these amazing clients, I am working with others who are waiting until the perfect home hits the market! I have a lot of buyers who are ready to make the move!

With my Compass Comparable Market Analysis (CMA) tool, I pair my expertise with live market data and comparable sales to elevate your home sale. 

Here’s how:

Homes priced right sell quicker & for more money.

When you list at the right price, you’ll sell at the right pace. I’ll use the CMA tool to understand the current market so we can go live with the perfect price that ensures your home maintains momentum.

Pinpointing what your home is really worth.

Overpricing is sellers’ biggest mistake. I can tell what your home is really worth so you don’t miss the mark and wait around. Let's connect to discuss the value of your home.

The 52 Difference.

My goal each year is to transform the lives of 52 homeowners as I guide them through their home buying or selling experience. 

For every home sold, I donate $52 to Washington Trails Association in support of our aligned mission to protect the place we call home, the Pacific Northwest.


52 Flavors.

Kati Vegan Thai was created with the belief that food, much like life itself, just needs the right ingredients and timing to shine.

"How do you eat?" Believe it or not, this is a common question I get asked. Fun fact about me, I have been vegan for about 10 years - before it was cool or trendy. Eating a plant-based diet used to be challenging; however, over the last few years, I have seen more and more restaurants create exclusive menus for those with dietary restrictions - and have even experienced eating at fully vegan establishments. So this year, I am going to share where I dine each week - and showcase what I eat.

This week, I went to my new favorite Thai restaurant - Katy Thai. Not only is it 100% vegan, but also it's delicious & convenient. Kati Thai opened its second location and it's right across the street from my office! Shown here is their famous Pad Thai with broccoli added - just what I needed to keep me energized throughout my busy day!
