It’s that time of year again, one that many Rogue Valley families and visitors have enjoyed over the past 45 years. The Jacksonville Children’s Festival held at the Britt Garden County Park is a wonderful family event that every kid enjoys.Not only do you get to experience the many different hands-on activities, but our kids throughout the Rogue Valley come out to show their talents and put on shows for you on the Britt Stage .           An amazing group of volunteers comes together to put this on for Our Children every year, giving the kids a ton of fun and the parents hardly a dent in the pocket book. When we first arrived in Medford Oregon in 2004, one of the founding members of the Jacksonville Children’s Festival, Susie Truscott, told us about this great opportunity for our 7 year ...

REO/Short sales and inventories are not foreclosure rates. "Normal" indicates properties that do not require third party approval for the transaction. "REO" means Real Estate Owned, indicating bank or mortgage company ownership. "Short" stands for Short Sale, where third party approval is required for the transaction. Percentages of sales and inventories add up across the rows, but may not total exactly 100% due to rounding.     The above material is my opinion and it is always recommended to seek qualified professional legal and financial advice when looking at your real estate sales and purchasing options.

The Historical United States Hotel in Jacksonville Oregonmay be for sale in the near future.  One of Jacksonville's oldest historical buildings could be up for sale within 3 months.  The Southern Oregon Historical Society (SOHS) has proposed selling the United States Hotel on California St. in Jacksonville Oregon, in hopes that Jackson County will give the Southern Oregon Historical Society a cut of the profit.  Jackson County owns the 100+ year old building, which is leased and maintained by the SOHS. Earlier this month, SOHS, which is struggling financially, proposed moving out of Jacksonville and consolidating its operation in a building it owns in Medford, Oregon.  If the county agrees to sell the hotel, it could be auctioned off within three months.  The picture above features Quil...

Jacksonville, Oregon is Voted One of America's Top 10 Coolest Small Towns!  Just across the border from California, the old gold-rush town of Jacksonville, Oregon is getting its second wind from liquid gold. With 17 wineries located in the surrounding Applegate Valley, and a climate that's ripe for growing multiple types of grapes, Jacksonville, Oregon is a refuge from the tourist whirl of Napa. Herb Quady is among the residents integral to the burgeoning  scene. Quady, whose father, Andrew, produces dessert wines at Quady Winery in Madera, Calif., opened the Quady North tasting room in April (255 California St., quadynorth.com). "There isn't anyplace in California that's nearly as cute," Quady explains of his move. "We're all about the bucolic southern Oregon life." The best way to tap...

In the last two days, the latest foreclosures to be listed for sale are in Central Point. *One located on Ester Way and looks like a good bargain. A little over 25oo square feet on 1.78 acres. The house was built in 2001 and currently appears to be owned by Wells Fargo. The price on this house is $299,900.  This is a rural piece on a well, but also on RVS sewer. *The other new bank owned property in Central Point is on Bush street. It is under 750 square feet, and looks a little rough. But it is priced just below $100k at $99,900. I have not been out to see these properties yet because they are so new. If you or someone you know want to take a look at them, I would love to go out and be surprised, or horrified with you. When looking at Foreclosed properties, you never know what you are ...

A local phenomenon, if you enjoy fine dining, you MUST go to The Jacksonville Inn. This was the first restaurant we dined at when arriving in Southern Oregon, and the one we have frequented most since moving here in 2004. Not only is this wonderful restaurant offering fabulous, creative food selections, they have one of the best wine selections in the Rogue Valley.  I know they'll have some of our favorite wines in their Wine Shoppe for us to serve at our own dinner parties, and I'm often stocking up there. Knowing we have enjoyed every meal we've been served, we like to give Gift Certificates to the Jacksonville Inn out as client gifts, confident their visits will be memorable ones, too. We have our company Christmas Party at the Jacksonville Inn every year, and we all look forward to ...

If you haven't been to MacLevin's Whole Foods Deli, you have a delightful experience awaiting you. This family owned deli had my Brooklyn New Yorker husband moaning and groaning over the delicacies that took him for a joyous walk down Memory Lane. The menu offerings were like a "big city" neighborhood deli, but right in quaint Historic Downtown Jacksonville Oregon at 150 E California Street. The MacLevins' story of how they came to Oregon is so similar to our own...and to that of many out of state transplants who have found their way to Southern Oregon to live out their dream. Go down and hear their story, while enjoying some of the magnificent offerings they have on their menu. Just don't go Tuesday or Wednesday, as these are the days they are out enjoying their wonderful lifestyle her...
