Spring 2012 Sales on Bainbridge Island

What’s Been Going On? March & April saw a surge of sales on Bainbridge Island

Things have been sort of crazy in my world.  2006 crazy.  Crazy like multiple offers and 70 hour work weeks.  Crazy like I had four inspections this week, submitted three offers  – all three of which were multiple offer situations and I had two families in from out of state […]

Bloedel Collage - by Jen Pells

Bloedel on Bainbridge | Fall Walk

I like/need to exercise and I prefer to do it outside versus a gym.  I received a Bloedel Membership for my birthday this summer and have not used it nearly enough.  So last week on one of our glorious sunny fall days (like today), I took my three mile walk […]

One of My Favorite Walks on Bainbridge
