Feeling the energy in Yakima

I'm in Yakima today visiting the new office. Great opportunity to hear and see the new team in action, answer questions they have about new products like HomePages, and make sure they're fired up about working at HouseValues.

The second I walked in the door, though, I realized that this team is already fired up. Talk about a passionate group of people! There's a serious buzz at the office, reps on the phone with new customers and prospects, very excited about our products and their customers.

This is an incredible community, too. The talent pool is fantastic, it's a beautiful part of the state, and just a couple hours away from the Kirkland office.

Had one rep mention to me in the kitchen that this is the best job she's had in years. Sometimes people say things like that because they think it's what you want to hear, but the excitement in her eyes didn't lie.
