Fishhawk Lake Real Estate-Cabins in the Woods
Many clamor for lakefront property, but there are those Thoreau-types who would just as soon find their footprint deeply marked in the seclusion of a woodsy setting.

At Fishhawk Lake, there are spots that just sing to these people. Away from the tighter boundary lines of your lakefront neighbors, out of the throngs of lakefront living, tucked in where there are no onlookers viewing your visage while gliding by on their watercraft in front of your lakefront property. 
It used to be that "lakefront property" was all that potential buyers would seek, whether … (26 comments)

Fishhawk Lake Real Estate--I'm ALL OVER GOOGLE!
In lieu of Bob Stewart's recent blog about our ActiveRain Traffic skyrocketing numbers, it prompted me to check out Fishhawk Lake on Google.
This was page one of Google (see below). 
Check this out:
On the first page I start with my website at #3: lakehomesatfishhawk.com My Wordpress (free) blogsite is #4  Homes for sale at Fishawk Lake Under $200,000 #5 (I learned from Bob Stewart to title my blog this way--great idea!!)

Fishhawk Lake Real Estate Sold off the Lake-10256 Ridgeview Terrace
Birkenfeld Oregon 97016

Full timers will be moving into this large home nestled in the woods on a quiet cul-de-sac. 
One of the amenities that the former owners loved best (as he explained to me when I called to congratulate him) was no cell service and no TV (their choice). 

 
At one point, during a hard time,  while his wife was recovering from brain surgery, seven of their family members were sitting around each reading a different book. He kept a journal of his Fishhawk Lake experiences and … (4 comments)

Fishhawk Lake Real Estate-71624 Fishhawk Rd Birkenfeld SOLD!

It took a long time to get this one closed thanks to a lender, Oswego Mortgage who made sure that everything that could go wrong WOULD go wrong! I didn't represent the buyers and certainly if I had, I would have steered them to my consummate professional, Shawn Baeschlin with NW Mortgage Group, a locally owned company in Portland. He would have made this transaction a seamless process.  What was supposed to be a leisurely 60 day close turned into an almost 90 day close with 8 extensions and it wasn't even … (6 comments)

Fishhawk Lake Real Estate--"I don't know what you did to my family..
but they're ready to buy a place at Fishhawk Lake!"
 
What a great conversation starter that was with the phone call I received the other day! I retorted with, "I just let Fishhawk Lake shine!" It's like shooting fish in a barrel (which I would never do, but you know what I mean)....if I can just get them here, Fishhawk Lake does the rest. 
Certainly, continually blogging, taking terrific photos, having several websites gets the ball rolling for those new buyers to pick up the phone … (32 comments)

Fishhawk Lake Real Estate--Vacant Land For Sale--Many Choices!
This last week has brought out all of the potential buyers for vacant land that is extremely reasonable in pricing.

Camping is allowed, and all lots have water/sewer hook-up available or already hooked up. Power is available or already in, too. One has an outbuilding on it and a few have easy access, with a driveway already in. Some vacant … (18 comments)

Fishhawk Lake Real Estate-Snapshot of Activity in Our Market
With spring having sprung, people are out more often looking at property, picking up fliers, taking those Sunday drives on a whim. More of the community are coming to use their vacation homes, mowing lawns, opening up musty rooms by bringing the fresh coastal range air in. 
Ah, spring at Fishhawk Lake! Gotta love it!
 
Properties are moving both on lakefront properties at Fishhawk Lake as well as off-the-lake. Currently there are two sale pendings in the "under $200,000 lake property for sale" range. A lakefront property just sold late last … (12 comments)

gayle richboxman: Fishhawk Lake Real Estate--"Internetting" Brings in the Biz - 03/29/14 01:04 AM
My best friend was here for a couple of days of freedom, visiting Fishhawk Lake.
 
She is a top producer of real estate in Portland, but doesn't tap into the internet. We got to talking and I told her how that has increased or basically been the foundation of building my business. 
Actually, so much so, that other agents are coming out much more frequently. Today, I have two agents from two different MLS areas showing my homes while I get to write up a new listing at the same time! 
This may seem like every day news to you, but … (10 comments)

(I took this photo from my canoe just days before it closed.)
It had been on the market for a bit, always seemed to be in the running, but never quite made it to 1st place until these new buyers came along. They saw what a funky little gem this was and made an offer while the winter was still lingering. (Who says there's a "season" for buying … (7 comments)

gayle richboxman: Fishhawk Lake Mystery Photo - 03/12/14 04:37 PM
Fishhawk Lake Mystery Photo
 
The day before yesterday I went and spent hours in my canoe traveling from one end of Fishhawk Lake to the other. I took many many photos. What a wonderful day.
When I take photos, I like to look at things differently.
Take photos with a different "bent" if you will. 
At one point, I saw this, so I took a series of pictures of it.
I didn't change the colors at all. I sharpened it a bit, but otherwise, this is pretty much what I shot. 
Can you guess what this is?

gayle richboxman: Fishhawk Lake Real Estate-Are You A Servant To Your Master? - 03/05/14 03:36 AM
Are You A Servant To Your Master?
 
I was going through one of my online courses today for my continuing education and this particular class deals with laws that govern agency. This was one area it addressed:
Common Law:
 
In England’s common law, the principal-agent relationship was a master-servant relationship, in that the servant owed absolute loyalty to his or her master, and it required that this loyalty replace any of the servant’s personal interests as well as any loyalty the servant owed to any other.
Hence the traces of common law can be identified in modern-day agency. … (11 comments)

gayle richboxman: Fishhawk Lake Real Estate-My Fishhawk Lake Niche in a Word - 02/18/14 02:38 PM
 
If I could pick one word that currently represents what I know about my "niche", Fishhawk Lake, it would be history.
 
 
 The history of the birth of Fishhawk Lake. The history of the homes I've had the pleasure of selling and re-selling. The history of the people who've lived here and the sense of community. The history of events, great fun ones and lifechanging emotional ones. The history of the seasons. The history of wildlife at Fishhawk Lake, who've come and gone.

 
 
All of it circles in upon itself, is intertwined, as is my history … (14 comments)
