Marianne Leth and Leif Steffny are realtors with the Robert Ott Group of RE/MAX on the Lake|Northwest in Issaquah. Marianne has been in the Real Estate industry for 15 years.

She is particularly concerned about our area’s young people who are still choosing to rent in our accelerating markets instead of buying and paying yourself every month instead of lining a landlord’s pocket.

He now helps families and individuals in three counties learn about the power of home ownership, and how to transition away from renting.

Denny Conner with CRD Design Build has been helping greater Seattle homeowners transform their homes through remodeling since 1980. Realizing there was often a gap between the designs clients brought him and what they could afford, he helped pioneer the design-build service in the early 1990s. He founded his company with the goal of establishing a home remodeling and construction business that treats its customers with dignity and respect. Building has been Denny’s lifelong passion, and there’s nothing he likes better than shaping homes to fit the owners’ lifestyle. In The Money Hour segment today, Denny talks about how you can monetize your home. Listen to Denny’s segment.
