Guess What I’m Doing This Saturday Night? Join me!

Hi everybody, and welcome to this week’s episode of the Zebra Report. I’ve been so fortunate over the years to have incredible people, clients, and associates in my life that give back. I just want to thank everybody out there doing good things. With what’s going on in the world right now, taking a little […]

Lessons from the Racetrack

Some of my fondest childhood memories were at the racetrack. Yes, that is correct, I said the racetrack.  The photo above was taken only a month ago by my sister Debbie at my favorite childhood racetrack. Let me explain. My father was a restaurant owner and many of his patrons were the trainers and jockeys […]

The Power of Being Still

There is no doubt we are in unprecedented times. For most of us, this creates a heightened degree of stress and uncertainty.  Over a third of the country has been asked to stay home and our once booming economy has come screeching to a halt.  When can any of us remember being told by the […]

King County Assessor, John Wilson – Strong Leader, Innovative Ideas, Powerful Voice  

I am not one to actively search for speakers about government policy as quite frankly I think they can be a little dry and often too focused on what is in their best interest politically.  So, when I first heard about some innovative things that the Washington State King County Assessor’s office was doing, I […]

The Power of a Strong Brand

I must admit that I am a bit of a brand snob. I have my favorites and I’m fairly loyal to those favorites. Note that I did not say that I am completely loyal because there have been times when a good deal or a lower price enticed me to try another brand. A great […]

Mindset Matters… It All Begins With a Positive Thought

If you sell real estate and you work with a broad range of clients, it is inevitable that someone at some point will either dump you or choose not to work with you. Or perhaps they will suck the life out of you only to have you find out later that after all your hard […]

The Power of Giving Back

Real estate agents are reminded everyday of how important it is to give back. When an agent gives up their time, talent, and expertise, they have the ability to change people’s lives or to reduce stress during what is often a very difficult transitional time – because when people are buying and selling real estate, […]

It Could Happen To Anyone

It happened to me and was life changing. The recent report about the broker in Snohomish County, Washington who was assaulted at an open house brought me back 20 years when I too was assaulted at an open house. Although this is difficult to share and I am sure difficult to read, I would be […]

A Huge “Thank You” to the National Association of REALTORS®

I have been a member of the National Association of REALTORS® as long as I can remember and as long as I have been licensed. I wouldn’t have it any other way.  It is the one expense I write a check for every year that I truly feel is one of the best yearly investments […]

Anything is Possible with Persistence

I can still clearly remember the day my daughter Alannah called me from college to tell me she had found a homeless dog. Her school was over 1000 miles away. She was living in a no-pets-allowed apartment. So this newly rescued dog would not be possible for her to keep. I knew where she was […]
