Seattle job market among country’s hottest!

blog picOnly 3 cities across the country had a hotter job market than Seattle last year!

The Puget Sound Business Journal reported that Seattle added over 78,000 jobs in 2015.

Dallas was #1, followed by San Jose and Los Angeles.  Finding and keeping talent is a hot topic across the Puget Sound region. More than 25,000 technology jobs in the state have remained open for at least six months, according to the Washington Technology Industry.

What that says to me is that we are perfectly placed in our area to see an increase in buyers looking for that perfect home in a central location.  My team is ready to help you find that home!  If all of this activity has you wondering what your home might be worth in today’s market, I will be happy to meet with you.

Is it time to start dreaming about your next home??

Fairwood Featured Business: Fairwood Golf & Country Club

Happy February!

I am excited to continue the “Fairwood Featured Business” series on my blog with installment #4.

I am committed to sharing what I LOVE about the Fairwood area. I believe that a big part of what enhances our quality of life is when we enjoy our surroundings. So I’m taking an opportunity to focus on our neighborhood specifically and to appreciate all that we have here, so close to home.

Previously on this blog, I have featured Plaza Cleaners, Fairwood Thai Cuisine, and Cosmo Nail Parlor.

For February I am proud to highlight the Fairwood Golf & Country Club.

The Fairwood Golf course was established in 1967 as part of the Fairwood Greens neighborhood development plan. It is a gorgeous, tree-lined, rolling course that serves as a beautiful centerpiece to our Fairwood neighborhood.

The clubhouse boasts a beautiful dining room, ballroom, lounge, fine dining and more casual pub fare. The food is amazing and the atmosphere can’t be beat.

Beyond the golf, amazing restaurant, 8 lane pool and fitness room, what I personally love about Fairwood G.C.C. is the FAMILY FRIENDLY atmosphere.  It is a FUN place to be! …and I don’t even golf!!

  • Did you know that memberships start as low as $38/month?
  • Did you know that there are fun family events going on at the club all the time?
  • Did you know that Fairwood supports a championship swim team, youth golf camps and the Kentridge golf team?
  • Did you know they offer a comprehensive Wellness program including swimming, fitness room and personal training? (**ask me about BOOT CAMP – I love it!)

Award Winning Golf Course

You definitely do not need to be a golfer to take advantage of this wonderful community resource we have right here in Fairwood. But if you are even a little bit interested in experiencing the course and what club membership has to offer, the staff will happily offer you a free round of golf & lunch with a club ambassador. No heavy sales pitch – just a great day out on the course.

In fact, right now Fairwood G.C.C. is offering a special 2016 GOLF PREVIEW so you can experience membership with no long-term commitment and no dues until MAY.

Health & Wellness

Take it from me, if you have never experienced the Fairwood Golf & Country Club, you simply must. If you already enjoy the Club and its amenities, I know that you understand what a neighborhood jewel we have!

Thank you to General Manager Tom Frets, Wellness Director Melissa Korda and to ALL of the amazing Fairwood staff who help make each club experience special for my family.

2.5 Tons Shredded During Fairwood Recycle Event

Our Fairwood Family Greenfest was a huge success!

Families visited with neighborhood friends while munching on Hawaiian Hot Dogs (we served 200 delicious dogs!). And the kids had fun in the bouncy house.

We helped over 500 Fairwood residents recycle metal and computers and shred confidential papers. We did 2.5 tons of shredding and filled two big trucks of recyclables.

Thank you, Fairwood community, for your kindness and your business. The Rosie Rourke Team had a blast giving back to the community.

Here’s a picture of the Hills family – they were so excited to get rid of the boat motor that’s been sitting in their garage for the past 20 years!
