Brian and Leslie are Northwest natives who are passionate about life here and the remarkable natural settings that make this region unique. We’re also foodies, and we ride the crest of the latest restaurants and food trends.

Brian is an architectural designer who grew up right here in Blue Heron Lakehouse, which was his family’s home. He collaborated with the renowned architecture firm Escher GuneWardena in L.A. before returning to Seattle to design and build luxury homes with contemporary aesthetics that bring the outdoors inside. Earlier, Brian was active in the business of rock-and-roll. He is a connoisseur of fine wines and can tell you which Washington wines to be sure to sample during your visit. www.remodernedhomes.com

Leslie grew up on a dairy farm on the Elwha River on the Olympic Peninsula (west of Seattle). She is a long-time magazine editor and travel writer, as well as the author of two books, including a Michelin guide to the Pacific Northwest. Leslie loves travel, dancing, baking and outdoor activities, and she can tell you about quintessential Northwest experiences that will give you a flavor of life here. www.leslieforsberg.com
