Antique digging at a deserted farm house with my Mom: I think that’s what started my fascination with old houses, antiques and re-purposing.
Moving to Tacoma I found a city full of creative juices, musicians, glass blowers, painters, Actors, and artist of all kinds. This wonderful creative mojo just flows to you here. I bought my first property here the summer of 2010: a tear down built in 1903. But what I saw, was what the home and area could become. This was a dream project for me, to renovate an old home using old, new and repurposed materials in the design.
I spent the summer renovating, working through one nightmare after another, crooked contractors and all. Very hands on, I worked myself into injury and kept going. I regret nothing but the crooks. This was a labor of love I would do all again and probably will.
My friend Barbara was renting a small one bedroom apartment fully furnished, (dishes towels everything) to traveling nurses and business people. She lives in a different area and thought my location was perfect for this. Tacoma Corporate Rental was born.
I spent the next month furnishing the main floor apartment. Again mixing old and new: you will find it cozy and charming. I added the upstairs unit with the increase in demand and now have a third on Martin Luther King Way across from Tacoma General.
Come and enjoy Tacoma, city of the arts and friendly people, while staying at Tacoma Corporate Rental with its convenient locations and access to I-5.
I look forward to meeting you
