Lexy the Biker Babe

Congrats to our Howl-oween Best Pet Costume Contest winner, Lexy the Biker Babe!

Join us in congratulating our Howl-oween Best Pet Costume Contest winner, Lexy the Biker Babe! Lexy heated up the competition with her edgy and rockin’ style. She could definitely be the owner of a Harley! Her family, the Tuckers, received a $200 gift certificate. Maybe Lexy can get a new helmet?!

The Howl-oween promotion did not just bring cute animals dressed in their best costumes, it also brought Premier new Facebook “likes.” As promised, for each new “like,” we donated $1 to the Humane Society of Tacoma and Pierce County. In all, we donated about $120! Hopefully, it will help more pets be adopted into good families, such as the Tucker family. Continue reading

Sterling BBQOur Summer BBQ held earlier this month at Sterling Crossing was a huge success! The weather was great, and we had a fabulous sunny afternoon full of fun in the neighborhood. While around 35 homeowners and friends gathered to enjoy all the excitement, several prospective buyer groups drove up and stopped to visit. What perfect timing for everyone.

Everyone enjoyed the BBQ and meeting the neighbors. While the adults were mingling, all the kids made new friends and played together.  The best part is that one family is now working on their financing so they can buy in Sterling Crossing. It was perfect timing! We gave away Premier Monopoly games, Premier mugs, and a few people even walked away tumwater new homeswith cash from contest winnings! They all had a great time and we look forward to doing it again next year.
