This market is hot, white hot.  At least in the Portland Metro area.  The housing market right now is so hot that in my local area, the Clackamas County, Portland-Oregon City area, we have made multiple offers and lost them all to offers that have been $30,000 -$40,000 over asking price.

While driving back 6 hours home from Eastern Oregon, I had time to reflect on some things in the car while everyone was sleeping. On the trip back, I received several angry messages from a client (who is soon be an ex-client) about some points she wanted to bring up with me. Point 1: You never an...
As I was driving today on my way to Eastern Oregon to celebrate Thanksgiving with my in-laws, I realized a couple of things. First, the phone was vibrating off the hook.  I was trying very hard to not check so I put the phone on silent knowing that I can always check it later.  And besides, I tru...
I wanted to write today about something that is related to the real estate business but more importantly, the life business.
