The Cascade Team Real Estate Blog

Buying a house can be a daunting process. I am here to help walk you through all the steps to make the process as easy and enjoyable as possible. There are a few different categories of buyers. The first category are buyers that need to move immediately, whether it's to move for a job, or maybe they sold their home and haven't found that perfect next house. The second category are people that know they want to move, but don't need to move immediately. Another category is investors. They buy and sell all the time and are very familiar with the process.

I will go through each category one by one.

When I first moved here, it seemed "way out there", but I still managed a less than one hour commute to grad school. After graduating with a master's degree in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine I set up a small practice in the town next to me, Monroe. I quickly became familiar with the local community and loved the small town charm and values. Everyone here is so friendly and it was a far cry from the competitive ways of Southern California.
