The first time that I met the lady in this picture she insisted on giving me a hug as if we were long lost friends.  We'd never spoken a word to each other until I introduced myself as the person behind the Facebook page 365 and More Things to do in Lane County, Oregon.She follows my page and frequently clicks Like on many of my posts.  I knew from Facebook that she was one of the owners of BlueBird Hill Cellars and that they were opening their tasting room over Memorial Day weekend.My wife, father, and I brought a hearty picnic lunch to BlueBird Hill Cellars and B&B, located just north of Alpine, Oregon and one of several hundred wineries in the fertile Willamette Valley.A Facebook page is somewhat like a blog.  If you consistently post quality content, you gain understanding and respe...

  Corvallis citizens remember when EXTREME HOME MAKEOVER partnered with our town to lift the spirits of a family in need! This is a story about a family that is on a journey. It was an amazing opportunity for them to be part of the Extreme Home Makeover experience and they were grateful for some fun and joy during a hard season of their lives. But as that season closed, it became time to move forward. Selling their home was a big part of that.  As a team we are are so grateful to have a little piece in our client’s story. To be able to come along side of them and help them achieve their dreams is so rewarding and part of our mission.  After feeling like we were a part of this family’s story by watching it unfold on TV, it was a joy to truly be a participant once the home was listed wit...

 A Naval Officer with 23 years on active duty, I retired from the Navy in 2005 and started a new career in real estate in my adopted home town of Albany, Oregon. After realizing that many people had misconceptions about real estate that cost them money and heart-ache, I developed the concept and began as host of Real Estate Talk on KGAL radio in January 2007 to try to get realistic information out to the public. I moved to RE/MAX Integrity in 2008. My approach to real estate has, since the beginning reflected the same core values that I learned in the Navy; “Honor, Courage, and Commitment.” Given my military service, my membership in Rotary International and as the son of a nurse and the brother of another nurse, partnering with Homes for Heroes® just felt like the right next step to co...

  Lots of people I correspond with in email sign off with inspirational signature quotes. Some are interesting, some are funny, some are lecturing, they usually tell you a lot about the person you are corresponding with.   Online are a plethora of websites that offer you sentences that are what smart, witty, famous or intelligent people once said and there is no shortage of followers who eagerly try to identify themselves with those personalities.   Whether you like Buddha, Shaw, Charlie Chaplin or Margaret Thatcher as guiding lights, you certainly will find a sentence that you can wholly identify with.   So you have decided that you totally, 100% LOVE other people to know that "“Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.” T. S. Elliot.  Your email ...

Your house is on the market and nobody is biting. No offers for weeks. You need to move or already have moved. You need to sell or need income from the property in order to avoid financial problems. Is renting out a good option? Of course this depends on a number of different points.  Here are some questions and answers that enable you to make a sound, educated decision: Q: will the expected rent cover enough of my expenses? A: It depends on your current mortgage. Calculate PITI (principal, interest, taxes and insurance) to know what it costs you per month to hold the property. Include a vacancy reserve and a repair reserve. Then add liability insurance (ask your insurance agent if this is already included or needs to be added on to your HO insurance policy). Ask a local rental agent or...

When buying a home having a seasoned negotiator on your side is paramount. But what is really the goal? Just the lowest price? Often not! In Corvallis the tide is surely turned and in lots of market segments we have, with under 2 months of inventory, a true seller’s market. Now it is not anymore about the lowest price, it is about getting the house that you love under the best conditions possible. And now more than ever it is about having a good negotiator and advisor in your corner. Here are three scenarios for three different types of buyers: The primary residence buyer You are searching for your new home. This can be your first, a new one, your last, whatever it is, it is highly personal. Your broker called you, there is a new property on the market and it might very well be the one!...

Remarkably, compared with the same period in 2011/2012, sales of bare land/lots are up nearly 400%! Clearly this is an optimistic sign that people are ready to break ground and supports new construction in the hopefully near future.
