Buying a home? Here are some of the service providers and their roles during your purchase...
Lender or Mortgage Company

oregon: Things to do in Silverton, Or - Week of July 31-Aug 7, 2012 - 08/01/12 04:08 AM
Homer Davenport Days are here again! This weekend, Silverton celebrates Homer Davenport, an internationally renowned political cartoonist. I have a greater appreciation of the meaning behind this event and the man we celebrate after reading his coming of age memoir, The Country Boy. Highly recommended reading for any Silverton or Willamette Valley resident.
I've always enjoyed this week-end because it becomes a class / family / friend reunion where our townspeople, past and present gather together. And, somehow I've been roped into pushing a Davenport on wheels down Main Street. See you in Silverton!

oregon: AmeriTitle: Stats Junkie - Multiple Looks at the Year and Beyond - 01/27/12 06:34 AM
Statistics are all very interesting and fun to analyze.  What I am more excited about is my gut feeling this year.  Yes, gut feelings are not always for the analytical type; however our instincts can be more accurate than numbers.

I have the great fortune of roaming our Willamette Valley and I get to talk to a lot of agents and lenders.  There is this overwhelming positive vibe that I have not felt for quite some time. 

The good, solid professionals who are in our industry today have found their footing.  A great deal has been learned … (2 comments)
