Rainy knew that we hadn't finalized our destination city-wise, she went to enormouse lengths to coordinate meetings for us with real estate agents, considerable distance from Bellingham. she introduced us to the local real estate market, as well as all the other essential services, stores and sites that we would benefit to know as newcomers. rainy sold us on Bellingham and Lummi Island. she had provided us with wise advice as to what to look for and what to double-check... just in case... sure enough her wisdom helped us anticipate how to properly arrange for fence permits, how to double check/survey property boundaries, and much more. she seemed to know or have life-long connections to many people in the region. as a result we were never short of services, consideration and priceless hospitality. She was solid regarding anay contracting and legal issues and (priceless) admitted when we should get additional advice. if she wasnt sure of somethimg, she immediately asked questions from her colleagues and got us our answers. it's renarkable that she can fit several clients into her schedule, because it seemed she accomodated our needs and requests without delay---remarkable. she was goid at iterating and reiterating what she'd observed and eventually a great deal if her good swnse and locl experience infused, with all respect, pleasure and humor.
