52 Hikes | 52 Homes

“If you never try, you'll never know.”

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

Join me as I journey through life on a mission to make a difference, one step at a time, one week at a time. How was your week? Here's a glance at mine...


This week, I hiked to Cherry Creek Falls with one of my realtor friends and we had so much fun! The trailhead is located near Duvall, which is close to our office, and the hike is only about 5 miles round trip. The trail is relatively easy, and well-groomed, with a gradual incline leading to the falls. The falls themselves are stunning, with water cascading down a 25-foot drop into a crystal-clear pool below. So pretty! The surrounding forest is very lush and green this time of year, and the towering trees provide plenty of shade along the trail. It was a perfect hike for a warm sunny day! Add Cherry Creek Falls to your bucket list if you are looking for a gorgeous hiking experience in the Pacific Northwest!




Busy buyer week!! I showed several homes this week and wrote offers for two of my clients; however, unfortunately, neither one was accepted. Both of my clients are excited to keep looking and have learned a lot throughout the offer writing process. You can't win them all, but you will never win if you don't try. So we are going to try again when the time is right and I am looking forward to helping them every step of the way! In addition, this week, I received a 5-star review from one of my previous buyers, check it out below!


This property could be YOURS! Escape to your own private sanctuary in the heart of the Cascades with these 2 charming cabins, nestled on 5 acres of tranquil land. With plenty of room to roam and explore, this estate offers the perfect balance of rustic charm and modern comfort. Relax on the porch with a cup of coffee and soak in the natural beauty of your surroundings, or gather around the fire pit for cozy evenings under the stars.

Whether you're seeking a weekend retreat or a permanent residence, these two cabins (and a barn) provide endless possibilities for your dream lifestyle. Don't miss out on this incredible opportunity to own a slice of paradise in the beautiful Pacific Northwest!

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.

This week, I celebrated Cinco De Mayo by dining at a fun local restaurant! Ooba Tooba’s is located in Redmond and offers an eclectic mix of fresh, high-quality and affordable Mexican food. Each item has been created to ensure there is something to satisfy everyone. The menu at Ooba Tooba’s changes seasonally and they even have vegan options! This was my first time visiting and I tried the Vegan Chipotle Cauliflower Burrito and it was delicious!! I will definitely be coming back here again!
