I love Spring! Daily I seem to feel drawn to my favorite flower stands, to pick up an armload or bucketful of tulips, daffodils, narcissus blooms, and bestow them gladly upon friends, clients, neighbors at home and work. Everywhere green is brighter, skies a bit bluer, and hummingbirds are flitting about.
Today I saw lots of homes with a very nice couple, and once again had to stop and marvel at how many varied microclimates, gorgeous views, affordable homes and special places we have here on Whidbey. A quick drive into Meerkerk Rhododendron Gardens was rewarded with the sight of wildly colorful blooms nearly busting the seams of this special park. Just go there and walk, rain or shine.
On the real estate front, it's been busy! Lots of great new listings, on the market, almost all really priced quite competitively. Buyers sense that the market has bottomed out a bit, and interest rates are still very good, so waiting seems a bit silly. For April, my little office has been really blessed with sales that feel more on pace for August. My clients, both buyers and sellers, have been delighted! Thanks to everyone who has made this Spring really amazing. Bunches and bunches of flowers to you all!
