2023 | Week 21

52 Hikes | 52 Homes

“Commitment is the ignitor of momentum.”

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 with my mom to Franklin Falls and we had so much fun! The weather was absolutely perfect and the birds were singing to us the entire way! The trail meanders through lush greenery alongside Denny Creek... and as you venture deeper, the views get better and the sound of rushing water grows stronger. Finally, the majestic Franklin Falls comes into view and you can feel the cold mist in the air. The powerful water gushed down moss-covered rocks, making for an unforgettable ending to a wonderful hike!




The Casassa Cabins are officially under contract! This week, we received a CASH offer, and after some negotiations, we came to a mutual agreement with the buyers and are now PENDING! I am so happy for my clients and am looking forward to a smooth closing! In addition, this week, I received a phone call from a potential client who is looking to sell his home! I researched the property and set up a listing appointment to check out the home, review comps and go over the next steps. The home is absolutely beautiful and I hope I get the job!! He said that he had observed how I marketed the cabins and thought I would do a great job representing him as well. I am thrilled about this opportunity and that the market is picking up! If you know anyone who is looking to sell their home, I can help!

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.

What's better than peanut butter and jelly? Peanut butter and jelly with a view! After our hike this week, we stopped by Laconia Market at the top of Snoqualmie Pass to enjoy their 'lil local pbj' - and it was so good! Laconia Market is a grocery store and coffee shop that offers foods like breakfast burritos, sandwiches, soups, bowls, salads, pastries, and more. And they have several vegan options! The grocery selection features everything you need from fresh produce, to farm-fresh eggs, to household necessities. They also have an amazing outdoor patio that is surrounded by mountains! If you are at the pass, this is the perfect place to shop, grab a bite, or hang out with family & friends!
