– “Hometown Property Management Opens Yelm Office”
“Andrew Barkis has had his eye on Yelm for a long time. In fact, his Hometown Property Management business has had clients in the surrounding area for the past ten years. Although they were able to provide service through their main office, his team started exploring the possibility of opening a Yelm office in 2008.”
“After biding their time for several years, on April 1, 2016 Barkis held a soft opening for a new office centrally located in downtown Yelm. The move is the result of multiple factors coming together and the sound of opportunity knocking.”
“Yelm is acknowledged as the fastest growing city within the county for the past twenty years, with a 108% growth rate between 2000 and 2010.
Despite such growth, the Hometown Property team was able to find an ideal spot for their new office,” quoting Heidi Smith, Thurston Talk.
