2023 | Week 48

52 Hikes | 52 Homes

“Courage is not the absence of fear.”

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...


Did you know that I am afraid of heights? Oftentimes, I hike to places that test my comfort zone, and believe it or not standing on a ledge of a mountain makes me feel very uneasy. But that doesn't stop me from chasing my dreams... and I sometimes use this analogy when working with my clients. The path to homeownership can be scary at times, but just like hiking, the reward is always worth it! This week, I hiked to the summit of Little Si and stood right on the edge. As took in the views, I reflected on my busy week and know that if I can face my fears, I can help others face theirs too.

You're Invited! Step into luxury at the all-new Magnolia at Moss Bay by Shelter Homes! Located in Kirkland, this sophisticated townhome community offers brand new 3-bedroom homes with custom finishes, stunning kitchens, luxe primary suites, 2-car garages, and rooftop decks with amazing lake views! Looking forward to seeing you at my open house!

Congratulations to my buyer! A few months ago, a repeat client of mine contacted me as she wanted to purchase a beach home in California! I referred her to the perfect broker, and together, we helped our client find THE ONE! Our offer was accepted, the home was remodeled, and we are now officially closed! I am so happy for my client! Thinking of moving to another state? I’m here to help... wherever life takes you! Let's connect!

And congratulations to my first-time home buyers! After looking at several homes, we found THE ONE and put in an offer! Our offer was accepted and we closed just a few weeks later. Everything went amazing with this transaction and I am so happy for my clients! If you are looking to invest in the Northwest, I can help! Let's discuss your goals!

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.


This week, 2 homes were sold. 2 donations were made. Donating to Washington Trails Association means a lot to me as it supports the organization's mission to preserve and maintain trails, ensuring access to the breathtaking beauty of Washington's wilderness. These contributions play a vital role in sustaining outdoor recreation, environmental conservation, and fostering a sense of community engagement in the Pacific Northwest.

52 Flavors.

Have you been to 5 Stones Coffee Co.? They have locations in Kirkland, Redmond, and Bellevue and I love each one! At 5 Stones they are dedicated to building and fostering genuine relationships with their guests, their teams, their vendors, and our local community. They are also committed to creating an environment for their guests where real relationships can develop and grow, which is really important right now. This week, while visiting 5 Stones Coffee, I enjoyed a Vegan Berry Oat Bar and it was amazing! Whether you are looking for something new, or want your usual served to perfection, this is the place! I highly recommend checking out 5 Stones Coffee!
