?

We had a great time at our booth at the Whidbey Island Area Fair this year. Lots of folks stopped by to chat or ask about the Island County real estate market. We had four days of fun and conversation with members of our community and visitors from off-island. This year we again gave out $50 gift certificates from local businesses to the winners of our daily drawings. Show here is Becky Brager, winner of a gift card to Sebos, and Joe Aernie, our broker in the Bayview office. We, at Coldwell Banker Tara Properties, offer congratulations to all of the winners!
