Happy New Year! And welcome 2017.
I hope you all have had wonderful holidays, but now that the festivities are over it is time to get back into the old grind. It is so difficult to get back to work after taking some time off for holidays, that’s for sure!

The market did slow down quite a […]

Happy New Year

As we wind down 2016, and prepare to ring in 2017, I want to share with you some of the most gorgeous photos of our fine city that I have ever seen. These were taken about 2 weeks ago during our big snow and ice event by Clifford Paguio Jr. They are shared with his […]

Market Activity Report Dec 5 - 11th, 2016

Hello everybody, and Happy Holidays!
I hope you all have been enjoying the snow! I heard on the radio: one of the DJs was saying that Portlanders aren’t too good at driving in the snow, or ice, or even rain sometimes for that matter. It kind of made me chuckle. I hope you all have been […]

Market Activity Report for November 7 - 11th, 2016

Hey everybody!
I hope your November has been awesome. Have you all noticed that the grocery stores have almost completely skipped Thanksgiving? Like what is up with that? I feel like I was just in Halloween land at the Albertsons and now suddenly its Christmas!

Our Growing Population

If you have lived in the Portland metro area for the last 5 years or so you have seen first hand how much our population is growing. I know I have mentioned in previous blog posts the United Van Lines survey that comes out each year showing where in the United States people are moving […]

Auto Draft

…Let’s see… How about a few words from one of my favorite resources?


We dodged another bullet this past week when the Federal Reserve Board kept the Federal Funds Rate (the Overnight Lending Rate) the same, despite three months of chatter in financial markets that the Board had waited too long to raise rates and would […]
