2023 | Week 25

52 Hikes | 52 Homes

“An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.”

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...


Hiking Little Si is quite popular as it is only about 4 miles round trip and the views are absolutely breathtaking. Located in the Cascade Mountain Range, just outside of North Bend, this moderately strenuous trail winds through lush forests that are filled with vibrant beauty everywhere you look! It's no wonder why people like exploring here!! After continuing up the well-groomed switchbacks, you arrived at a ledge that overlooks an abundance of evergreen trees. The weather was perfect and there were a lot of other hikers at the summit - especially for a weekday! I took a few photos and videos and definitely enjoyed the sunshine before heading back down. If you are looking for an excellent hike, that offers great views, check out Little Si!

This week I collaborated with one of my amazing lenders and we taught a first-time home buyer's class! It went really well and are looking forward to teaching more classes in the future! So, if you are interested in learning more about real estate, please let me know!

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.

Located in the historic Old Bellevue neighborhood, Carmine's is nestled against Bellevue Park and has an outstanding garden patio that is perfect on a nice day. Offering a rustic, timeless ambiance, Carmine's provides guests with a convenient escape from the increasingly urbanized way of life. Carmine's Bellevue is a true destination on the east side and is a great place to go for meetings or special occasions. This week, while having lunch with a business associate, I enjoyed Everyvine Red Mountain wine with the Spaghetti Ortolano - prepared vegan with arugula, tomatoes, pine nuts, and extra virgin olive oil. It was absolutely delicious!
