rmls: Search all available homes in and around Beaverton

One think I love about Beaverton, Oregon and all of
Washington County is that when you live here you can have a sense of
pride. I've noticed a lot when people say, "Oh, you live in Portland?"
The people who live in Washington County pipe right up and say "No, we
live in Beaverton, just outside Portland" or Tigard, Hillsboro, it
doesn't matter, we have a pride here and we don't want to be associated
with another town even if is bigger, we are proud of where we live...
rmls: Yes, even you big banks can’t change the contract at the closing table

Well, Friday was a good day, my
client finally got the keys
to her new house, but it wasn’t easy. The delay in close
was because the bank
on this foreclosure was refusing to sign the settlement statement. They
they were refusing to sign and to pay the buyers prepaids despite us
that in the contract and them agreeing to it. They thought my client
and bring in the extra $1,800 netting them more, they were wrong!
How did we get the bank to
finally play ball? The buyer
advised me to send a

- 02/17/11 02:09 AM
It was 8am, we were getting up
late as we decided to watch a
movie after the kids went to bed, but when we walked out
our bedroom door, we
knew there was something different. We had our twelve year old daughter
standing there all excited saying, “In the sun he melted, melted, in
the sun he
That is from a song they learned
when they were in primary
at church called, “Once there was a snowman”. So, we knew
we clearly had a snow
event on our hands during night or early morning and the

What makes a good winter day in
Beaverton, Oregon real
estate? When you can look out your front windshield see
nothing but sunshine
and a clear lane of traffic. We get a lot of rain during the winter
that sometimes affects traffic. So when you get a day like this, it
makes it a pleasant
surprise that I’ll take anytime.
rmls: Is finding the perfect home as easy as picking out a pumpkin?

As I watched my kids today pick
out pumpkins I thought about
how they looked at each one from top to bottom, looked for
they were looking for in a pumpkin until they found the exact one they

Can home buying really be
this simple as well? In my opinion if

rmls: Big agencies are closing, little offices are closing, who do I hire to list my home?

Big agencies are closing, little
offices are closing, who
I hire to list my home? This is a question I get asked
all the time and I’ve
worked for both big companies and little offices. For me personally as
who goes out of my way to market my properties, I didn’t need a big
the fact is it was a hindrance.
But, many who work for big
companies will tell you the exact
opposite. They have thousands of agents worldwide that
they can market your
home to. I say hogwash to that as well!
rmls: Donate blood today in and around Beaverton and Tigard, Oregon

I can tell you
that instead of planning a vacation which can make you feel good for a
few days, why not do something that can make you feel good forever and
only takes a couple hours? That is right, donate blood!
If you are planning your summer vacation, stop right now, take 3
minutes and plan to give
blood and then go back to planning the vacation.
Donating blood is quick, easy and
like I said only takes a couple hours. Then if you do
that and then take your vacation, imagine how good
rmls: The Holidays are here, why not give the gift of life: Donate Blood!
- 11/23/09 11:05 AM
When is the best time to give
blood? The answer to that is anytime! Anytime you can donate blood, there will
always bee someone who could use it.
But, as the holidays approach,
why not give the best gift of all, the gift of life! My personal story
is 20 years ago this year my dad had a liver transplant due to a rare
liver problem/ Thanks to someones donation of that liver and the blood
transfusions needed during that surgery, I am happy to say my dad will
be celebrating a 20th extra Christmas with us this year.
