Here are my picks for things happening this week!

Mon, Oct 15 2018– 9:30-11AM – Learning and Technology Group ~ -Every Monday this informal but comprehensive program welcomes walk-ins and addresses a wide array […]

Following is the breakdown for you according to RMLS:

NEW on Mkt (Sep […]

Support Local Businesses!

A rare bit of personal whimsy from me on this page~ My Dad had a philosophy about “cheering for the underdog”. I am pretty supportive of great success, so have never really waved this flag high, and am enthusiastic about “big”…as long as it’s Good. 😉 I DO have a long-standing preference for supporting smaller, sometimes family-owned […]

2018 Street of Dreams

What was old is new again, that is if it’s from the 1980’s.

I had the pleasure of touring this year’s Street of Dreams this week. There are six homes in this years tour plus a tiny home that is being auctioned to help veteran’s organizations. These homes are absolutely stunning. I love the Street of […]

Real Estate Cycles of Aging Homes

Real estate is rather similar to fashion: there are trends and styles that come and go. What is hot today will not be hot tomorrow. I find it fascinating.

Growing up my Dad worked for a large corporation that required that to be promoted he had to move. My Dad was hard working and successful and […]

Happy Easter & Passover

Dianne and I hope that you, your family and loved ones are enjoying time together this holiday weekend.  We wish you joy and success in your adventures, real estate and otherwise, as this spring season unfolds.

Market Activity March 12-18, 2018

Our weather may have a few showers, but the sun breaks are beautiful and growing more frequent. Spring truly is spectacular in Oregon, particularly in the Willamette Valley. I also feel that the spring market is in full swing. Well priced homes are selling fast and the inventory remains low. If you are thinking of […]

A Foreclosure Auction

In all my years of being a Realtor, and through the Great Recession of 2008-2014, I have never attended a foreclosure auction. That is, until this morning. It was pretty interesting.

I attended because of the circumstances of a friend. This is also a bit of a cautionary tale about the pitfalls of selling by owner […]
