Real Estate Agent - Windermere Real Estate/Lane County
I was born and raised in Eugene, and I couldn't wait to get out and explore the world at 18. By my late 30's I was ready to return to what I consider one the best places on earth to make a home. I hope you find value in my shared experiences on life in the Eugene area, and consider me as a resource for your real estate needs.

Being intimately familiar with the...

As real estate professionals, there are times when we are directed by the owner of the property to offer the property for sale on an "as is" basis.  The intent of the owner may be to emphasiz...
The Laurel Hill Valley is a unique little enclave in East Eugene. The main route in, Riverview Street, is poorly maintained, and without sidewalks, which adds a rural flavor, and there is an intersting mix of old and new development in this peaceful neighborhood. I was dropping off flyers at one ...
I hope I'm the first to congratulate Fred Chamberlin on reaching 60,000 points on Active Rain in just a few months! Fred is an encyclopedia of information in the world of Real Estate finance, with a high expertise in government loan programs of all kinds, and his blog should be required reading f...
According to a survey by Remodeling magazine, homeowners can expect less of a return on upgrades than in the recent past.  In the bubble years of '05 & '06, nearly half the projects undertaken could be expected to return up to 90 cents on the dollar, but in the past two years, nothing has even co...
