The Johnson’s Yellowstone 2019 + ID + WY + MT!

Yes, Yellowstone was amazing, awe inspiring and perfect for our family right now! But the journey is the thing. 2100 miles driven in a VW Bus, thank you PeaceVans! 5 states checked off the list. 9 bears, hundreds of Bison and a quick glimpse of a coyote. And I think we’ve experienced enough geysers, pools, mud pots & thermal activity to last, you know, a lifetime 😀. These memories will stick with us forever. The Johnson’s Yellowstone 2019 + ID + WY + MT! #ExperienceYellowstone#johnsonfamilytrip2019 #pvr_wallawalla#yellowstone2019 #johnsontrip#afterschooltrip #familymemories #vanlife

From Istanbul to Seattle!

The best, best part of my job is when I get to handover the keys to a first time home buyer! And this time Yasemin came all the way from Istanbul and has made a life here in Seattle and has now bought her first home!

Her mom is even here from Istanbul to help her move in!

It gets me a little choked up when someone gets into their first place and they’re so excited just to walk through the door! Best feeling and best part of my job!

Welcome home Yasemin!

Humble Design Housewares Drive for the Homeless

Sunday, March 10th from 11 – 2 p

Windermere – Wedgwood back parking lot – 8401 35th Ave NE, Seattle, WA 98115

This is an incredibly proactive way we can all help the homeless in our community.

We are asking all of our clients, friends, neighbors and family to bring us household items, see list below, to help the homeless in Seattle.

 

Humble Design takes donated items and furnishes homes for people that are experiencing homelessness. 

They have an amazing track record – when a previously homeless person moves into their first home and that home is furnished, they only have a 1% chance of becoming homeless again in the first year!

 

Please bring your donations to our office on Sunday, March 10th

Or, I will come pick up your donations and deliver them for you! 

 

Thank you so much for your generosity and kindness in helping the homeless members of our community.

Robert.
