Yeah, yeah we know most of us want to skip the commercials. However these are just heartfelt comments about people we know who happen to be in business and are sincere about building opportunities to help a small town thrive. We appreciate our sponsors at Sallal Grange, Snoqualmie Arts Commission, Snoqualmie Valley YMCA, Danny Evatt – REALTOR®, & Imagine Housing. Thanks to their financial contributions, Snoqualmie Arts Market is off to a strong start and moving forward to more years of enhancing tourism, supporting small independent businesses & creating jobs.Dave Mayer, founding director of the Snoqualmie Valley YMCA, is a person who’s quick to put his support behind projects he believes in. Fortunately for the organizers of Snoqualmie Arts Market, Mayer is enthusiastic about our goals; and can envision the possibilities of partnering with SAM in building our community. Recently named ‘Best Organization to Join‘ in a Snoqualmie Valley Record, readers poll, the Snoqualmie Valley Y is all about strengthening community. “We do this intentionally with programs that center around Youth Development, Healthy Living and Social Responsibility,” remarks Mayer. “We work side-by-side with our neighbors throughout the Snoqualmie Valley to help kids and families thrive—and apply their positive behaviors and goals at home, school, the workplace and beyond. Being healthy means more than simply being physically active,” Mayer says. “It’s about maintaining a balanced spirit, mind and body.”
Danny Evatt – REALTOR® art loving, snappy dressing, local real estate agent with a great sense of humor, good eye for staging homes, and a style as cool as his Texas drawl. He may be from the Lone Star state, but Snoqualmie has a big part of his heart. He knows this community, because he’s involved in it.
After hearing about the Arts Market–he offered a contribution–we didn’t even have to ask. We’re not just kissin up because he gave us money. Here’s what people who gave him money have to say…..
excerpted from 5-star review in Yelp posted 7/18/13 by Dan R. of Mercer Island
We were nervous buyers, mostly uneducated and asked an insane amount of questions. We were on the needy end of the spectrum in relation to most home-buyers….in the knowledgeable and extremely capable hands of Danny Evatt.
Danny is a local to the Snoqualmie area (a fact that was pivotal in his understanding of why we wanted to live on the Ridge). He knows the roads, the geography, the school districts and truly understands the appeal of the area. Danny was never pushy. He understood our limits and boundaries and worked well within them. If he upsold us, it was so suave and indirect that it should be applauded. Danny was able to speak in a language that we understood and never felt insulting. He enabled my wife and I to purchase our first home with an ease that was completely unexpected.
All casual praise aside, the brunt of reason why we are recommending Danny is because he got to know us as people- not just buyers. This enabled Danny to fight for what we needed, wanted and desired. We have been closed on our home for nearly a month and Danny still checks in via text messages. Danny is a good guy with clear cut morals who can adapt and understand his prospects. He is damn good at his job
