2023 | Week 45

52 Hikes | 52 Homes

“If we were meant to stay in one place, we would have roots instead of feet.”

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...


When I was hosting an open house in Issaquah a couple of weeks ago, I passed by a trailhead that I had never been to before! So this week, I decided to set out for an adventure and hike the Wilderness Peak Loop on Cougar Mountain! The weather was perfect - the sun was shining and there was not a cloud in the sky!! And I couldn't believe there were still leaves on the trees based on how many were on the ground. You could barely see the path! I had a wonderful time checking out this fun new trail and loved all of the PNW views!




It's official - our offer was accepted! Congratulations to my first-time home buyers who never gave up on finding THE ONE! Not only does this beautifully maintained 3-bedroom home have gorgeous water and mountain views, but it also backs up to a green belt! The location is amazing as it sits at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac and is within walking distance of Redondo Beach and Boardwalk! My clients love this home and are excited to entertain friends and family on their new spacious deck while enjoying the Puget Sound - amazing! I am so incredibly happy for my buyers and look forward to a smooth closing!

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.

Dote is located in the Lincoln South Tower in Bellevue and is one of my favorite places to grab a coffee and a bite to eat! The gym I work out at is in the same building so it is always fun to stop here for a well-earned treat before heading to work. This week, I enjoyed a Vegan Raspberry Scone and a delicious almond milk latte and both were so good! At Dote, they serve up simple daily pleasures in a whole new way but their passion is people. They always provide outstanding service and because of this, they are usually really busy! The meaning of Dote is "to be extremely and uncritically fond of" ... so the next time you want to be doted on, I highly recommend checking out this amazing cafe - they will take great care of you!
