Thinking of selling? Sell your home with The Cascade Team 



Do your research, choose your listing price, and watch the home buyers line up.

Unlike the cost of a gallon of milk or a flat-screen television, a home’s price can be hard to pin down. It’s complicated because each home is unique and has its own story to tell.

When it comes to setting the price of a house, the only thing to do is to look at the recent sales and active listings of similar homes in your area. Combine this research with the inside market knowledge of a local real estate agent, and you can confidently choose your list price.

Wild Sky Estates


I was driving down Old Owen in Monroe, and I came across a New Real Estate Development sign. "Wild Sky Estates" with a directional sign heading up towards Florence Acres. Intrigued about New Homes being built, I wanted to see the new "17 Luxury Homes" stated on the sign. So, I drove down to get more information and see how much they have built so far.  The Community is located on 287th Ave SE, Monroe. Here is the first sign I saw that led me to the New Development.
