  Talent is located in Oregon's beautiful Rogue River Valley, just off Interstate 5. We are located seven miles south of Medford and four miles north of Ashland, in Jackson County. Temperatures vary from 20 to 65 degrees in winter, with occasional fog and snow. Summer temperatures are 65 to 110 degrees, with cool nights. Between 2002-2006 Talent experienced a period of residential and commercial growth. New subdivisions and apartment complexes. During this housing time housing prices increased making it more difficult for lower income working families to become home owners. While several other developments have been approved, construction has slowed down since 2007. It is expected that this will turn around but not in the near future.

I just received in the mail, a note from one of my Southern Oregon, specifically Talent Oregon, first time home buyers!  She had originally contacted me to see if she might be able to rent one of my listings.  The more we spoke, we quickly realized she might be a great candidate for owning her first home.  Her note made my day. "I am sitting here in this absolutely gorgeous house - thanks to you!  You are the one who answered my email question, told me about the USDA loan and referred me ..... for pre-qualification.  I am so grateful for all you did for me.  You are such a great professional Realtor!  You carefully explained everything to me.  Showed me everything I wanted to see.  Refrained from rushing me into anything that was not best for me and kept me informed on all offers and op...

Pic from Wikipedia A weed is a plant that is growing in a place that is not wanted.  Weeds are so persistent and seem to be nearly impossible to keep out of the garden, lawn and especially the field.  Some weeds leave off a toxin. One of the best things you can do to control weeds is to give them some competition from the plants you actually want there.  With your healthy plants it provides competition for space, moisture and nutrients which in turn make the weeds struggle. A better prevention is to seed what you want in there before the weeds take over, herbicides to control these pesty weeds should be used as your last line of defense. Yellow Starthistle is very common in Jackson County Oregon(Southern Oregon/Medford,Phoenix, Talent, Sams Valley,etc. areas).  And with an effective pla...

Photo by Greg Stiles/Medford Mail Tribune Talent Oregon is a small town just minutes away from Medford Oregon.  They found Talent Oregon because someone sent them an email of the Talent exit so they decided to make a stop in Talent Oregon to find some Talent! =0) The Talent Oregon Mayor even got up and sang a song he knew from his old high school days.  This show is so great that way as it allows old and young to sing and or show off some skills. I am really happy the show came to our area as this is such an amazing spot it also gives locals a chance to show off without having to go to San Franciso which is usually where most auditions are. I am looking forward to see if anyone from this area show up on America's Got Talent!   Clason Whitney Principal Broker/Coldwell Banker Pro West Rea...

One of the things my husband and I used to do a lot before the wee babe (now bigger than their one grandmother, and headed to overtake the other in height soon) came along changing our entertainment choices from small theater dramatic performances to Disney movies and the Circus. Here we are discussing possible career choices and their associated schooling, and we realized "Woohoo! No more Kidz Bop in the car...no more Disney movies." We can go to First Friday Art Walk in Ashland and Third Friday Art Walk in Medford. We can go to the theater. And we can do this without hearing every couple of minutes "are we going home soon?"! So at the Rotary Club of Ashland - Lithia Springs' Crab Fest night, we were avidly bidding on the Camelot Theatre Company season tickets. And we won! This small 1...

1...2...3...yes three art walks for the Rogue Valley! Talent will be joining Ashland and Medford with putting on an Art Walk. Ashland has a First Friday Art Walk, Medford a Third Friday Art Walk, and Talent will keep art enthusiasts going by having a 2nd Friday Art Walk. Ten Talent businesses located on South Talent Avenue will hold tonight's first event from 4 p.m. - 8 p.m. with food and wine located at each stop.   An artisan who creates a wonderful client gift will be there. Cheri' of Paradise in Bloom who creates the most beautiful silk orchid garden art and arrangements "where even Mother Nature can't tell the difference" will be there with The Total Picture located at 201 Talent Avenue.   Depending on the success of this first Art Walk for Talent, they may increase the number of t...

New Sammy's  Cowboy Bistro is one of the Rogue Valley's true 5 Star restaurants, and a fantastic dining experience for those looking for some exquisite food and wine pairings. Located on the South end of Talent, close to Ashland Oregon, make sure you call ahead for reservations, as although the restaurant has expanded since opening with their original 6 tables, it is a popular choice for Southern Oregon visitors and residents alike.  My husband and I saved our trip to New Sammy's for a special occasion, and finally got there to celebrate our 13th anniversary. Vern recommended an incredible French Basque Region Red Wine to go with our Duck and Lamb dinner selections, and he hit the choice right on. Although prices for this restaurant are at the highest end of the range for our area, we f...
