Your new home is waiting


My Story

Washington state has been my home “forever” and until last year I lived on the west side of the mountains. After years of visiting central Washington on vacation we decided to move from the rainy side of the state to Yakima.  In August of 2018, my husband Bob and I built a new home in the Terrace Heights area and continue to explore the communities, theatres, fairs and neighborhoods on this side of the state. We are avid walkers, hikers and enjoy camping, cycling and other summer sports. Our friends on the “west side” of the state asked why Yakima?  It was simple; less traffic, lower cost of living and the rain factor made the choice easy. My husband is a general contractor, specializing in outdoor living spaces; decks, gazebos and other outdoor projects.

For over 30 years I served buyers and sellers in the Puget Sound area; I’m ready to invest my efforts in the “desert lifestyle”!  Whether you are looking for your first home, dream home or “rightsizing” from a long-time family home to a more manageable lifestyle, please call me today, let’s talk. Over the span of three decades I have learned to employ the resources available to make your transition a smooth one and relieve the stress out of your move. I look forward to working with you.

My goal is to earn your trust so that you an make the decisions with all the facts, worry free. Past clients say that I made the move/sale easier than they expected; buyers and sellers took comfort in knowing every detail would be attended to, closing would go smoothly. I will employ all the Berkshire Hathaway team of professionals and services to reach a smooth on time closing.

Experience Matters.

We recently had the pleasure of using the services of Barbara Simonson for the sale of our condo in Providence Point. Barbara does not fit the stereotype of a realtor. Barbara became a friend. Barb told us what we had to do to get our condo ready for sale. She established a time-line for all the events that were to come – it was a bit challenging, but the right one. She not only gave us the name of an excellent painting contractor she chose the colors – which turned out to be perfect We had to make a significant downsizing. Barb came in and worked side by side with my wife to help her make objective decisions of what items of clothing, kitchen items etc. to keep. This was a huge help to say the least. (folks who have been through this process know how difficult this can be).  Thanks to her expertise our condo sold in two days with the price and conditions we wanted!  Throughout the whole process Barb was always just a phone call or “text” away. We received updates immediately as events unfolded. We can’t thank Barbara enough for all of her “extra” assists along the way. We will miss her. - Dave & Norma Kidney
