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 […]

Market Activity July 16-22, 2018

Just as I was getting used to the idea that we are in the dog days of summer a week happens that goes gang busters! Last week in Lake Oswego there were 32 genuinely new listings, 27 houses that went into pending status, and 18 sold/closed properties. That’s a big week!

Following is the breakdown for […]

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 […]

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 […]

Market Activity Feb 12-18, 2018

Last week in Lake Oswego there were 19 new listings, 20 properties that went into pending status, and 9 sales that sold/closed. I have to take note of the pending sale at 16835 Greenbrier Rd. Yes, Lake Oswego has expensive luxury homes and a few sell every week, but this house, with 8852 square feet […]

The Internet House Hunt

The Internet is the single biggest change that I have seen happen to real estate in my 30 year career. I go back to the days of the massive catalogs that were published every two weeks and distributed to Realtors. Just think if it, every two weeks. By the time I received it, they were […]
