fishhawk lake real estate: Sold! First Time Homebuyers Chose Fishhawk Lake to Live Full time! - 02/25/19 01:35 PM
This historic home and one of the first homes built at Fishhawk Lake (1970) will now be the beloved full time residence for first time home buyers, Nick and Javier. 
They found Fishhawk Lake  nestled in the coastal range of Oregon on a lark and as soon as they saw this home, they fell in love! They drove back into Portland, and contacted me straight-away. I was given the great privilege of representing them as buyers, as well as the wonderful sellers who were reluctantly selling, but having to since they have moved to CA to care for aging parents. 
We met soon … (13 comments)

fishhawk lake real estate: Does Writing a "Love Letter" to the Sellers Help a Sale? - 01/08/19 08:35 AM
In the last several years, this addition to a sale agreement seemed to be that magical ingredient that somehow swayed sellers to come to the light and agree, emotionally based, on that buyer who hooked them with the love letter of introduction. 
That was often in the "city". 
Portland Oregon's market (90 minutes from my rural market at Fishhawk Lake) was so cra-cra that they would pull out all of the stops to make THEIR buyer the one. 
Out where I am, in the middle of nowhere, with about 75-80% of my niche market being second homes, this wasn't common. Or even discussed.

Darling renovated turnkey lakefront A-frame took only a week to sell! An agent was looking for the perfect getaway for her clients as they'd been searching for awhile. Just as this one came on the market I let her know about it and she set up an appointment right away. They loved it!

Thank you, Shawn Gibson,  for the ease of the transaction. She even helped while I was on a private island vacationing in the Bahamas. All good!

I was shooting photos of my newest listing at 10252 Lakeview Drive, Birkenfeld OR-- Fishhawk Lake-- when some fawns decided to pop by to have their pictures taken. Not shy, they walked right in front of us over my seller's property to go next door to get plums.

fishhawk lake real estate: Fishhawk Lake Real Estate "Do They Allow Log Cabins"? - 02/04/18 02:25 PM
Fishhawk Lake Real Estate Do They Allow Log Cabins?
I just had an inquiry from my website and the potential buyer asked if Fishhawk Lake allows log cabins. I love this question and it's never really been asked quite like this before! 
Absolutely!! My husband and I have even bought and sold two log cabins, both on Beach Drive. Log cabins or log homes are always popular no matter the season or the size. 
If you want to build a log home or log cabin, they must be at least 900 square feet. There's an incredible log home builder who is second generation … (23 comments)

fishhawk lake real estate: Fishhawk Lake Real Estate ™-Sunshine in January Brings Everyone Outside! - 01/15/18 10:10 AM
 Sunshine in January at Fishhawk Lake inspires people to get outside! As I was showing homes yesterday, my buyers were commenting on what a gorgeous day it was! It gives us this taste of what’s to come, soon, I feel, as it’s been a pretty mild winter.
People were hiking around the lake, canoeing, and there were even two sets of family playing tennis outside!
It made for the perfect setting to showcase my slice of paradise, Fishhawk Lake. Some buyers prefer a sunnier side of the lake, and this gives us a good opportunity to see where the sun hits during the … (16 comments)

fishhawk lake real estate: Fishhawk Lake Real Estate-A Buyer's Story-Reliving Fishhawk Lake! - 12/29/17 03:51 PM

One of my favorite things to do in my "job" is to introduce my buyers to Fishhawk Lake. 
What's even more exciting is when someone has already created memories in their childhood and they come back with great enthusiasm! 
That's what happened with one of my buyers this summer. Aaron McNally contacted me after he came up to do some work for one of my neighbors. I'll let him tell the story:
"Gayle C. Rich-Boxman said I should tell my story of the lake. This is the quick down and dirty.

fishhawk lake real estate: How I Fell Upon Fishhawk Lake--Ever Thankful for it! - 11/18/17 10:06 AM
Some of you may know the story of how I arrived at Fishhawk Lake, some may not. Indulge me for a moment if you have.
I was at a Quick Print getting invitations ready for my husband’s 40th birthday surprise party. The year was 2002. The man standing next to me had this beautiful watercolor rendering of a cabin that his wife had painted. It drew me in immediately. We got to talking and he said they had this very same cabin at Fishhawk Lake and were preparing to sell it. He was there to make flyers. We started conversing about this … (13 comments)

fishhawk lake real estate: A Dreamy December Listing Photo of Fishhawk Lake - 10/22/17 09:50 PM
This was part of a lakefront listing of mine and the owners decided to list in December, not always the best time for lakefront landscapes to “shine”. This exterior shot was one of their views and the misty fog was meandering its way through the treetops across Fishhawk Lake. I didn’t do much to edit this one, as it seemed to capture a completely different essence from what summer photos offer, thus helping to show that even in the midst of winter, you could get some grand views from this home. It always looks like a watercolor rendering to me. 
As it … (11 comments)

fishhawk lake real estate: Relax! You're at the Lake! - 10/22/17 09:33 PM
 While attending a home inspection of my buyer’s, I happened to go outside for a moment to enjoy Fishhawk Creek, the property's boundary that also feeds Fishhawk Lake. This view presented itself to me. I didn’t have my camera, so I told the home inspector (who is also a homeowner at Fishhawk Lake and a friend) about it and he said, "Go, get your camera! We’ll be fine.”
I live just minutes away and hoped that the lighting would still be the same when I came back. I got lucky as the stillness of the waters hadn’t changed.
This photo now graces … (15 comments)

fishhawk lake real estate: Your Buyers Have Stories To Tell! - 10/18/17 07:22 PM
Your buyers have stories to tell…stop and LISTEN.
When a potential buyer contacts you, do you stop and ask questions or do you launch into your spiel?? Every single person has a unique story to tell, one that is compelling if you give him/her the chance to share it.
If you can put your own need to succeed aside and create the beginning of a true dialogue, you can develop the kind of relationship that can change a person’s life. Theirs and your own.
Everyone has a story with twists and turns and places that they may take you that you have never … (48 comments)

fishhawk lake real estate: Fishhawk Lake Real Estate ™ Market Trends July 2017 - 07/25/17 01:48 PM
In reviewing the last 6 months of sales, listings, and interest in properties at Fishhawk Lake, it’s been a bit of a different year from 2016.
Not nearly as harried or frenzy-like, this year has been somewhat balanced with a cadence of activity that has been regularly moving along like a fine-tuned engine. Unlike Portland, there have not been a plethora of multiple offers on any single property, other than one that was a foreclosure earlier in the year, to which I had the pleasure of representing the buyer on a bank-owned property that he eventually owned, but not … (2 comments)
