2023 | Week 7

52 Hikes | 52 Homes

“May your dreams be larger than mountains and may you have the courage to scale their summits.”

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...


Work has been keeping me extremely busy, so I only had one opportunity in my schedule to hike this week. The forecast called for sunshine and I was looking forward to the clear mountain views. But our typical northwest weather switched unexpectedly and I was summit bound in the rain, then the snow. Yes, snow. Luckily, I am always prepared for any adventure, so I put on my microspikes and continued chasing my dreams. The summit was completely socked in and it was incredibly windy so I quickly took a few photos, ate some snacks, and headed back down to my warm SUV! It was chilly, but so worth it!

This week I was invited to tour an incredible penthouse condo for sale in Seattle! I was absolutely blown away by the sweeping city, mountain, Space Needle, and Puget Sound views. This home has been completely remodeled with a Chef's Kitchen that features Sub-Zero & Monogram Appliances, Carrara Counters, and custom cabinetry. Deco Glass art shelves, Motorized Lutron Shades and two private parking spaces. There are 12-foot ceilings inside and an expansive private terrace that captures the sparkle of snowcapped mountains and warm summer sunsets. In addition, residents have access to the World class hotel amenities at Pan Pacific including concierge, fitness center, and spa. Walkable to award-winning restaurants, shopping, Whole Foods, theaters, and the light rail. Do you want to see inside? Click here to join me on my tour! Interested? This could be YOURS!

In addition to checking out this stunning home, I showed one of my buyers a few more townhomes that were located in Edmonds and she found one she loved!! I wrote the offer and it was accepted! I am so happy for my first-time home buyer & I love her new kitchen!

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.

Did you know that there is a pizza place in Seattle that serves vegan options? At RAZZíS, their mission is to see everyone enjoying their favorite foods without sacrificing their health or well-being. Whether you like a traditional crust with the works or find yourself avoiding certain foods for health/dietary purposes, at RAZZíS you know you can savor without sacrifice! Shown here is my favorite pizza, the Vegan Garden Special! YUMMM!
