West Seattle homes: Two Screaming Deals!

West Seattle homes: Two Screaming Deals!

One of the ways I differentiate myself from many other real estate agents is to regularly preview new listings as they come on the market in West Seattle. When I was out previewing properties today, I saw two West Seattle homes that I think are exceptional values for the right buyers, so I’m going to post information about them here for you. UPDATE: 1/19/12 This first property is SOLD. The first is a move-in-ready¬†4 bedroom, 4 bathroom home in the…

Happy New Year’s Eve, West Seattle!

Happy New Year’s Eve, West Seattle!

Here we are, counting down the hours until another new year begins. There is no denying that this has been a challenging year in many ways for many people. The promise of a new beginning provides hope and often, relief, which is probably why most of us are so ready to celebrate the occasion. This blog, Wonders in Alice Land, is a new beginning for me. For the past 5 years I have published a West Seattle real estate blog…

An easy way to give Toys For Tots

An easy way to give Toys For Tots

Prudential Northwest Realty and I are proud to participate in the annual Marine Corps Toys for Tots toy drive. This worthwhile cause sponsored by the United States Marine Corps has a long and successful history. The drive is run by volunteers and depends on folks like you and me to provide toys for them to distribute to local children who might not otherwise have much to celebrate on Christmas. My office is a collection site for new, unwrapped toys to…

McLendon Hardware hosts “How to” clinics

McLendon Hardware hosts “How to” clinics

As a single woman homeowner, I’m always looking for resources to help me learn how to maintain my home. I’m a big fan of McLendon Hardware because I find their staff to be knowledgeable, courteous and helpful. They may not have quite as big a selection of merchandise as the big box stores, and their prices are not quite as low, but I am always amazed by how much they DO have in stock and I find their prices to…

Christmas Trees: living green for the holidays

Christmas Trees: living green for the holidays

When it comes to decorating for the holidays, nothing says “Christmas” to me like a traditional tree. I love the lights and the ornaments and the smell. I have a tiny little house, so some years I have opted to put up a Christmas tree and some years I haven’t. In the past, it often depended on how much furniture I had and how many dogs were living with me. About a dozen years ago, I concluded that buying an…

Living Green in my car

Living Green in my car

I am not a car buff. When it comes to my car, I want it to be dependable and economical with a little bit of “cute” mixed in. My 2001 Toyota Echo fills the bill. The only thing that is likely to convince me to trade it in rather than run it into the ground is the lure of an electric car (or at least a hybrid). Yesterday’s Seattle Times ran two blurbs on the front of the NW Autos…
