Brunch for Beds—Let’s support Mary’s Place!

Mary’s Place has a new fall fundraising event: Brunch for Beds! This inspirational experience will take place in Benaroya Hall, where The Seattle Symphony Lullaby Project will perform during a light brunch. I’m hosting three tables at Brunch for Beds, and I’d like to invite you as my guest. If you’d like to attend, just send me an email, and I’ll reserve a place for you!

When: October 1st, 2016 at 10:30 a.m.

Where: Benaroya Hall, 200 University Street, Seattle

The Lullaby Project is a wonderful creation: The project gives mothers in distressed situations a unique opportunity to write a personal lullaby for their babies and children—empowering these mothers both as artists and as individuals. Members of The Seattle Symphony help turn these songs into beautiful pieces of art, and then Mary’s Place participants, Seattle Symphony teaching artists, and musicians perform them. Some of these special songs will be performed at Brunch for Beds.


We’ve supported Mary’s Place for many years, first with donations, and more recently, by founding and leading Agents of Change, a philanthropic group of real estate professionals. Every Agent of Change commits to: regularly donate to Mary’s Place (between $500 and $5,000 annually), volunteer at Mary’s Place’s key fundraisers (Holly Jolly Party, Benefit Luncheons, etc.), and participate in our own fundraising efforts to benefit Mary’s Place’s women, children, and families. Last winter, for instance, we organized a clothing drive that filled a U-Haul with fancy clothes for Mary’s Place’s children!

To attend Brunch for Beds, all you need to do is send me an email. I’ve paid for three tables, and I’d love to fill them with guests both new to Mary’s Place and those already familiar with it. This is an inspiring, beautiful event–come join me and see the life-giving work of Mary’s Place!

    Darcie was such a joy to work with. She felt like family during the sale of our house and the search for our new home. We may have found our forever home, but if we ever need a Realtor in future, Darcie from Real Estate Gals will be our first call.

    I have worked with Johnine and her team for 19 years and have always received personal, knowledgeable and professional service and attention! There is never and pressure and they will guide you away from a property when appropriate, which is always appreciated when a market is hot and the tendency is to move quickly. I trust them and have never been let down!

    Johnine Larsen is fabulous! She listened and came up with ways we could get what we wanted in a house and stay within our limited budget. When we found the house we wanted, she moved super fast to get the house inspected and implemented creative ideas to make our offer appealing. And out of 13 offers, we were selected and got our house. I recommend her to anyone buying a home.

    Real Estate Gals made sure we found our perfect house! Then, when we were up against other bidders, Johnine worked tirelessly to ensure we were tops! Her extensive real estate experience combined with exceptional character and integrity provided peace of mind throughout the process. She also made sure we received the right value as a seller and got the transaction done quickly and efficiently. Simply stated: there is nobody better to help you find your dream home.

    I'd give Real Estate Gals 6 stars if I could. We have used them multiple times, both in selling and buying homes in Seattle and the surrounding area. I can't say enough about the professionalism, knowledge, and patience they bring to the task of buying a new home, or selling your current residence. And they know the Seattle area so well, they'll offer valuable insights into the pros and cons of any location you may be to considering. Look no further, call Johnine at Real Estate Gals. You will be glad you did!

    Johnine was a breath of fresh air in the real estate market. She listened intently to our wishes and goals, and was tireless in her search for our perfect house. She is well versed in both Seattle and the surrounding areas. She made sure all the details were taken care of after the inspection, and made the closing process seamless. She even gifted us with a housewarming present. Nearly 7 years later, we still receive holiday cards and well wishes. I highly recommend Real Estate Gals and will look no further in the future.

    Johnine and the Real Estate Gals brilliantly took us through the home buying process two different times. Their willingness to educate (I was new), hear our home hopes, and support us through the process are a few of the reasons that I highly recommend this team. Speaking of a team, I love their collaborative business model - it meant that we--the home buyers--always had a returned phone call and an ability to look at a house on OUR schedule. Truly felt like they place the customer first!
