hood river real estate for sale by owner: It's A BIG Week In Hood River County... Blossom Fest Is Here! - 04/12/11 05:03 PM
It's A BIG Week In Hood River County... Blossom Fest Is Here!
Blossom Fest is one of the best times of the year to visit Hood River, at least as far as I'm concerned. Of course, it was during Blossom Fest that I visited Hood River for the very first time, so I might be a little prejudiced. Unfortunately, the blossoms are not at their peak this year as the early spring has been unseasonably cold and wet. Hood River has some nice blossoms, but the upper valley orchards don't. On the positive side, all the usual activities are still just as fun and … (0 comments)

hood river real estate for sale by owner: What A Big Goof: Meet Granite - 04/10/11 05:20 AM
What A Big Goof:  Meet Granite
Talk about a big lovable, goofy, oaf of a guy!! Granite is still a young guy, we're guessing part Husky and part Hound, and he's very active and cheerful. His big floppy ears just add to his charm. Granite is going to need to be in an active home where he can get that energy out... a family who camps and hikes would be ideal. A yard where he can exercise is a must. Right now, Granite's favorite pastime is running on the treadmill! He loves attention and can settle nicely, too. With a firm hand and a little … (3 comments)

Speechless Sunday - Our Other Volcano: Mt. Adams
 
Mt. Hood seems to get all of the attention in Oregon, but Mt. Adams is just as impressive. There are many spots in Hood River County where you can see both Mt. Hood and Mt. Adams (to the Northeast) at the same time. I took this photo on Thursday from Tucker Rd., just across from the air museum.

Step Two:
ActiveRain/Kodak Contest: What Makes A Good Sign and Flyer?
The Flyer Post
We used a similar thought process designing our property flyers as we did designing the For Sale signs. We wanted to professionally present the most important information with vivid photos, our "signature" color and our personally designed logo.
One of the most important steps in designing an impressive flyer is to take the best photos possible of the property. We use three different cameras at the same time and end up taking literally hundreds of photos for each property. A small home or vacant land will have … (3 comments)

Step One:
ActiveRain/Kodak Contest: What Makes A Good Sign and Flyer?
For Sale Sign Post:
We wanted our For Sale sign to be eye-catching and graphic, plus by using a photo we could also sell our area at the same time.  One great photo can speak volumes.
First we selected four different, stunning photos (among hundreds) we felt showed our region at its best. The Columbia River flows through all the counties we service, while Mt. Hood seems to us to represent the state of Oregon. Each photo showed one or the other, or even both. In the beginning, we used … (1 comments)

Hood River's Best Bagel!
I am a bit of a bagel snob... few live up to my expectations. Don't even suggest a grocery store bagel to me. I was thrilled to find bagels I adore right in the heart of Hood River.

We also offer specialty bagels - Ham & Swiss & The Hottie. My favorites include blueberry, sunflower seed or Ham and Swiss. They also offer … (2 comments)

hood river real estate for sale by owner: A Beautiful Girl Perfect For You? Meet Zoe - 04/02/11 05:48 AM
A Beautiful Girl Perfect For You? Meet Zoe!
This week's spotlighted pet holds a special place in my heart. Mel and our boys came across her while hiking a couple weekends ago. They played with her a little and went on their way. The next day, she showed up at our house, dirty, underfed, but sweet and gentle. So Mel called the sheriff (animal control in our county) and he took her to the shelter. When no one claimed her during the waiting period, she was put up for adoption.  Mel still talks about going to get her, but we already have … (2 comments)
