Makino | Las Vegas, NV

This is an exciting time for us. This week our offer for a small condo in Summerlin was accepted and now we are going through the buying process. I’ve worked in real estate for 8 years now and I’ve never felt more like an idiot. :0 I saw hundreds of transactions take place when I worked for Green Banker in Burlingame, CA. but, all from the sidelines. We do have a very smart agent here in Vegas and we’re grateful for that. She’s been guiding us through the process very well and I consider her my friend, so it’s been a lot of fun, to boot.

Our condo was used as a rental for the past 14 years. It has never been updated since the complex was built in 2002. So, we visited a flooring and kitchen/bath supplier today. I was knocked on my butt again! I’ve always rented and have only bothered with a few minor household repairs. Talk about a fish out of water! We did consult with a contractor prior to going there. That helped, but not a lot. We do have YouTube, however. Dana is very gung ho about doing a lot of the repairs/upgrades ourselves. I’ll be sure to write about our adventures here.

So, today we celebrated a tiny bit by going to Makino Sushi and Seafood Buffet a little ways from the strip. As usual the food and service didn’t disappoint. I really like their sushi and ramen bar. It’s a real treat to have both great sushi and delicious ramen on the same buffet. A little pricey for the offerings, but still affordable on an occasion. Like today!

I took some photos of Feiya while we ate our celebratory lunch. She was a good sport today. So, she received boba and sushi! I took these using my go-to Ricoh GRII.
