A great place to eat at the coast - 07/28/10 03:34 PM
Looking for a good place to eat when you are at the Oregon Coast? My husband and I travel to the Lincoln City area frequently and have eaten at several places between Newport and Lincoln City. One of my favorite high end restaurants was called the Tidal Raves. It is located in Depot Bay, Oregon. The food was fantastic and the view was wonderful. Be sure to make reservations to eat before the sun goes down so you can see the ocean! You will enjoy yourself. My family has stayed at the coast for years and we had never eaten at this restaurant.

My favorite place on the Oregon Coast - 07/27/10 03:44 PM
My husband and I love to go to the Oregon Coast. I feel somewhat spoiled that I have lived within an hour or so of the Pacific Ocean most all my life. Whether in Washington, Oregon or California I have enjoyed the opportunity of driving to the ocean. My favorite spot of all is Cannon Beach. My family has had a tradition for about 30 years of staying about 6 miles from Cannon Beach in a little area called Arch Cape. We started out in a small house when my sister had 2 children we had none. Then she had another (1 comments)

Buying your first home- Can you still do it without the tax credit? - 07/21/10 06:36 PM
I recently started working with young couple to help them buy their first home. They contacted me in June as they had been saving for about 5 months to get their down payment together. They didn't seem concerned or even mention the fact that they lost out on the $8,000 tax credit. They were ready to buy now and get out of apartment living. They had done their homework and were pretty sure they knew where they wanted to live, how much they could afford a month in payments and were eager to get started. They also seemed to know what (1 comments)

A fun summer week end in the Willamette Valley - 07/19/10 12:45 PM
This last week end was a great week end in the Willamette Valley. The weather was perfect, high 70's low 80's and cool nights. My husband and I started the week end out by a round of golf on Friday night after a relaxing dinner on our deck. It has been such a pleasure eating outside during the summer especially when it is a warm a, but not hot evening. Saturday we drove to Dallas and had a brunch with a few friends from church in our friend's park like backyard. We had a feast of salmon, quiche, bacon, hashbrowns, fresh fruit (0 comments)
Staging your home - 07/16/10 08:02 PM
I recently attended a one day training sponsored by Active Rain held in Portland, Or. I sat next to a very nice person who happens to be a home stager in the Willamette Valley. Her name is Margaret Oscilia and her business is Creative Concepts. Have been so impressed with how often Margaret comments on Facebook about a listing she staged getting an offer. Personally I have witnessed that when a house is staged it has a stronger chance of getting sold. And sold faster and for more money than a vacant or unstaged home. When I show houses to buyers they (2 comments)
