About Alexa Palmer

I grew up on a farm near Walla Walla and still live in the country. After college, I travelled around Europe almost 4 years. Between the 3 trips that I took there, I drove truck and combine in wheat harvest in the Walla Walla Valley to earn my college and travel money. Those were the good ole days when $1.25 an hour went a long way. In fact, twice I flew from Seattle to London for $100 one way.

With a degree in Spanish from the University of Washington (Seattle) and a teaching certificate, I taught school briefly. I found that I loved teaching, but students didn’t love learning. Then I married Bud, the love of my life (who died in 2009). After that, I went to Whitworth College (Spokane) for my Master’s Degree in Applied Behavioral Sciences (business consulting and counseling.)

Ten years later I started a computer training, database development, and repair business that my husband joined. We met lots of wonderful people who were so grateful when we got their computers or printers working again or taught them how to use a computer program. My mother was my first client…and I still help her occasionally when she gets stuck. She is 89!

In 2006, I got my real estate license and have worked hard to update, repair, stage, and sell every home since then. It is a very satisfying profession that takes a lot of hours to help a lot of great people. I especially enjoy listening to clients and helping them get to their next chapter in life.

Alexa Palmer purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Alexa Palmer chose Washington

As a realtor, I am passionate about updating, repairing, and staging homes because they sell faster for more money. At two real estate conferences that I attended in 2010, two speakers urged realtors to invest our IRA money into real estate within the IRA since we understand real estate and the market. I read the book, Leverage Your IRA, by Matt Allen, and decided I'd give it a try since the economic conditions for buying real estate are perfect: low interest rates, high inventory, a slow market, and owners eager to sell.

In January 2011, I bought a two-bedroom house near Whitman College and downtown Walla Walla. My contractors totally renovated the basement by adding three bedrooms, a bath, a utility room with a new washer and dryer, new windows, new heating and air-conditioning, and a breakfast nook with microwave, sink, mini-fridge, and table.

Now the house has five bedrooms, two baths, and is adorable!

What makes this cottage unique

Sipping hot chocolate or a delicious cup of coffee is a great way to wake up at Park Place. On Saturday mornings, take a walk downtown to the Farmers Market or check out other activities downtown. Every day of the week, there are lots of great places for a tasty lunch or pick up a carryout lunch and hike to one of the 30-some parks in Walla Walla.

During the afternoon, go shopping downtown, take a hike around Bennington Lake, or work out at the YMCA, which is just down the street to the north. For dinner, you'll find many delightful restaurants that will meet your discerning tastes. After dinner, relax on the patio, watch TV on the 42-in set in front of the fireplace, go to a movie, or take in the theater. Whatever your plans, you'll find Park Place to be the perfect home away from home.

Guestbook comments from the manager

What a wonderful space for our “family” getaway. This was our fifth Spring Release in Walla Walla and it just gets better every year. Park Place had comfy beds, a great table and seating area to gather, and a lovely backyard to enjoy the setting spring sun each day. Thanks!

Great weekend of friends, food, and wine!

  • 5 of 5

What a great house for our recent weekend getaway with friends! We comfortably fit 10 people (and a dog) in the house. We loved grilling in the backyard, walking to nearby coffee shops, and getting cozy on the couches for late night talks. Would definitely recommend this beautiful home to others!

Family get together

  • 5 of 5

We are very happy with the choice to stay at the Park Place Guest House. My two sisters and husbands had

an annual get together. The wonderful back patio got put to good use. We were surprised to find such a well

equipped kitchen. There was even coffee! Alexa was very kind to allow us to enter a couple hours before the

usual check in time. This house is definitely on our radar for our next stay in Walla Walla.

We loved it

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for us. Great kitchen well stocked, lots of bedrooms, outstanding back patio, etc. The walk into town was not too long (probably 15- 20 minutes to the core of everything).

Overall we would highly recommend the place.

Fun wine time in Walla Walla

  • 5 of 5

We had a party of 9 - the bedrooms are great! The patio area is great! Walking distance to downtown - great!

Living room, kitchen, and dining are a tight squeeze for 9, but it's workable.

We had an amazing time celebrating a 60th bday and a 45th anniversary. A memorable time spent tasting all the fine wines in Walla Walla.

(We even had a problem with one of our sleep # beds and the owner herself came out to try and remedy - as it turned out, the controllers got mixed up! Very funny story!!!)

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our big group to have a home base for exploring Walla Walla wine country. It was comfortable, clean and the back yard was particularly great for hanging out in the mornings. The shopping service was a great service for us to use so that we didn't have to shop after our late arrival. We highly recommend this house!
