We have purchased our first home in Ravensdale, and could not be happier about our decision to do so! It is absolutly perfect for us! It has everything that we wanted (although I did have to give up a little storage space); granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, cheaper cost of living, hardwood flooring throughout, and a lot of extra space for entertaining!
Oh yeah, a shop and 1.25 acres of property for the Man of the house!
We chose to live in Ravensdale because it has the privacy factor that we had been looking for. It is in a good school district for Emma, and not too far out from everything else (10 minutes from Four Corners, Maple Valley and Covington).
Howard has been joking that we should just sign all his paychecks over to Home Depot and Lowe's! That's about right!
If there is anybody who needs an AMAZING broker (Jodi Strittmatter with John L. Scott), or an AMAZING mortgage lender (Rob Beckner with The Legacy Group), we used the best! They both went above and absolutly BEYOND what we could have even imagined-they made this process as painless and easy for us as possible!
So here's to our starting over, by beginning a new chapter in our lives!
