New Gizmos

As some of you know, the Troll is also a mortgage broker. He is excited to report that he has launched his new mortgage website at The new site has a similar feel as our well received real estate site. You will soon be able to get information and apply for a mortgage securely online. I appreciate your patience during this process but please understand that we can’t get to where we want to be without some growing pains. If the preliminary feedback is on the mark you should really enjoy the new site.

On another note, the Troll has also been busy creating his new blog. If you are reading this you are already on it! This lovely creation is where you can get information on current local and national trends in the mortgage and real estate markets. I would like to again thank the wonderful Cherie Smittle for her creativity, hard work and patience. If anyone needs some website work I would highly recommend you speak with Cherie. I can provide you her contact information when you “Ask the Troll….Anything.” Now let’s get into some news.

It appears that the light rail project that will link the University of Washington to Westlake center began its big dig today. While this project has a long way to go it will ultimately provide its riders access to downtown and the airport. This development is definitely a plus for homeowners near U Dub. The estimate on its completion is 2016 with a cost of $2 billion dollars. The ridership estimates are 70,000 daily by the year 2030.

The other big news over the weekend was the arrest of Dominique Strauss-Kahn who is the managing director of the IMF. Strauss-Kahn who reports say recently set his sights on the French Presidency will apparently no longer be viable. He was arrested while sitting on a plane bound for a meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel to discuss the European sovereign debt crisis. His arrest will undoubtedly complicate the negotiations underway today in Europe.
