fishhawk lake realtor: 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.

fishhawk lake realtor: 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 realtor: SOLD! Large Lakefront Home Enjoys New Owners! - 10/17/17 07:37 PM
This process and the people involved could not have gone more smoothly! We closed early, thanks to my fabulous loan officer, Shawn Baeschlin and my buyers got the vacation home that totally fits the lifestyle that their family has craved! 
The sellers were so accomodating and easy to work with as well as their listing agent, Andrew Quiroz. The seller even called me when it recorded to thank me for my help in making this happen, and we both agreed that there was some divine intervention involved. The Kolsut family will be missed as they leave the lake and embark on a … (13 comments)

Getting Back to Fishhawk Lake--Can't Wait!!
Towards the end of 2016, I was approached to sell this cabin on the canal at Fishhawk Lake in Birkenfeld OR. Many many years ago, my husband and I were going to make an offer on it and about a New York second before that, the current seller had made an offer and it was accepted. 
Fast forward about 13 years. I walked into this cabin and fell in love all over again. I went home and told my husband about it going back on the market. Since we were now debt-free, we were looking for a … (24 comments)

ActiveRain University Podcasts--A Great Avenue for Sharing Ideas!
This summer, Bob Stewart, our ActiveRain Podcast master, contacted me about doing a podcast. 
A little gal marketing in the middle of nowhere about an itty bitty lake called Fishhawk Lake
in the coastal range of Oregon.
 
Well, I was honored. 
And had no idea how to do a podcast. 
Bob gave me the lowdown. Basically 10 questions that he asks real estate experts during a live interview. 
Questions like this:
     What is your best source for lead generation in your business and why?And there would be some jumping-off points as the interview ensued. 
Okay, got it.

fishhawk lake realtor: Fishhawk Lake Real Estate-Be Prepared for Long Closings - 09/25/16 02:52 AM
In most recent months, the onslaught of real estate sales in the Portland Metro area has had a wave effect on what is happening here for real estate transactions 90 minutes away, on lakehomes at  Fishhawk Lake in Birkenfeld Oregon. 
The pool of appraisers is stagnant, and the average age of appraisers is 58, according to one of the mortgage lenders I worked with earlier this year. The fact that it takes years, possibly, plus a degree to become an appraiser may deter some from entering this field. Appraisers are overwhelmed, with such a high volume of business that those who have … (6 comments)

After a pleasant experience selling them their home at Fishhawk Lake, they asked me to list their home in Salem. Because they are so wonderful, I agreed, even though it isn't my niche market.

Testimonials:Do You Feel Comfortable Asking for Them?
I know, I know. Scads of posts have  been written about this. Ok, I get it. BUT. It still doesn't answer that personal question for me, 
Is it really okay to ask for someone to tell you how fabulous you are?? In other business realms, that's what press agents are hired to do, I s'pose. Wax philosophic about your amazing attributes. 
Well, I am sorry, but I squirm at the notion.  
And it's pretty rare that I shed that squirmy skin, let my soft-underside show long enough to ask for a testimonial. I have to be quite … (24 comments)
