As you may or may not know, I am making a video series on How-To Build a Shop in Snohomish County, Wa and to inject a bit of humor, and a bit of reality at the same time, I decided to make a video meme of how I'm feeling. Hope you enjoy the YouTube short.

Previously, I made a video on how to care for a roof by applying moss kill semi-annually. Since making the original video back in 2018 that video has garnered over 12k views and a fair amount of comments. Those results are pretty good for a quick driveway video.Yet, those comments have held a constant theme of "you didn't show us how to apply it and that is why were are on YouTube". Regardless of my personal beliefs of how not difficult applying moss kill is by listening to the video or reading the instructions, I made a follow up video showing my exact steps.Here is the second video in the Home Maintenance Minute video. It took using a few GoPro's and the phone & mic to get enough footage to make a video and hope it is actually interesting enough to watch.

The next video in our series How to Build a Shop in Snohomish County is out and we decided to focus on receiving a As-Built from the Department of Health and locating the property's drainfield as to avoid getting a permit denied based on an improper encroachment.

Out of 1,700 real estate agents and teams under the Ben Kinney Brokerages of Keller Williams, we were #14 in total homes sold in 2021.We are very proud of our achievement because we are a small team. We don't have admin staff, we don't have just buyer's agents, we don't have just listing agents. We have Mickie, Toby, & Tracy in 2021. Tracy has relocated to Spokane ☹️ yet we're happy for in her new adventure with Kelly Right RE of Spokane LLC.Looking forward, we are excited to have added Casey Stivers to the team and having a successful 2022!In addition, Toby was #10 Team Agent by Units Across all Ben Kinney Brokerages Locations in 2021. Have to be proud of that!!!Ok, the self pat-on-the-back is over 😀

I starting a new series on Shops in Snohomish County and more specifically How To Build a Shop in Snohomish County. You might ask why this series is important. My clients as well as our area, shops are highly desirable and people want a nice covered space for projects, storage, and even work. So this series is aimed at answer questions Snohomish County residents may have about the process - design, permitting, and construction. Thanks for tuning and we'll see in later videos.Also, don't forget to ask your questions in the comments or send me an email at toby@barnettassociates.net.

In a recent transaction, where the sellers relocated prior to closing, the escrow company needed the propane tanks' percentage reading. While out at the property I decided to make a quick video on how propane tank leases and propane tank levels typically work in a Washington real estate transaction.
