What is Living in Olympia?

Mike Conner - Realtor/Owner City Realty, Inc.

The concept for ‘Living in Olympia’ started as an ongoing mental list. Through the years, I have accumulated a list of reasons that I love to call Olympia home. Some reasons are pretty general in nature, others have to do with specific people, places, and things that have made Olympia special to me. Launching the Facebook fan page was my way of showing my appreciation for the community that has given me so many great memories. I didn’t anticipate the outpouring of support for the fan page, and yet it didn’t come as a huge surprise. Olympia is a great place to live, and I would be fooling myself to think that I am the only one who loves living here. After seeing how much Olympia pride everyone showed on the Facebook page I decided to build on that, and create more of a web presence and outlet for people to read about and share the many reasons to love living in Olympia.

Now that you know the vision behind the site, let me tell you who I am. My name is Mike Conner and I am a lifetime resident of Olympia. Over the course of my life I have seen countless cities across a number of countries, but I keep coming home to this one. For the past 7 years I have put my enthusiasm for this city to work, helping others buy and sell their homes in and around Olympia. As a Realtor, and co-owner of City Realty Inc., I’ve been lucky to meet so many amazing people from all over town. I’ve spent time in every neighborhood in town and gotten a feel for the unique vibe of each one. Buying or selling a home is a huge deal, so being a part of such a pivotal point in people’s lives is extremely humbling to me, and something I take very seriously. Whether you are here looking at Olympia homes for sale or you just want to get to know more about the many things to do in Olympia, I want to extend a warm welcome and offer my wishes that our paths may cross again sometime soon.

    Wonderful site. I wonder if you might take some guest posts?

    Also, I’d love to be able to talk for a little while about how you got your site up and running, how it is working for you, and where you’d like to go with it.

    Also, I vote for Enterprise for Equity as a top ten reason for living in Olympia. They are a non-profit that helps low-income people build businesses – and they are absolutely amazing.

    Thanks so much for creating a space on the web that looks good and celebrates Oly.
