Fishhawk Lake is NEAR the Oregon Coast!(AND less expensive!) Many potential buyers who look at the Oregon Coast as potential for purchasing property often find that the prices are too high or it just doesn't have the "feel" of a lake home. I get this feedback all of the time from my clients. But!...

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! Th...

  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 ma...

The buying and selling of properties at Fishhawk Lake was moving along quite steadily throughout the spring and summer and much of our delightfully sunny October. The "off" button just got switched on only within the last week or so. Some homes sold in a New York minute   while others have steadi...

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.

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. You can't plan this stuff! The joys...

I've been reading a book called Simple Abundance...it's been around for years, but I finally got a copy of it early this spring. It's a daily missive on simple abundance, whatever direction that takes. June 7th was "The Joy of Living Rooms". I loved this quote of Lucy Abbot Throop:Some living roo...

There are many great activities to enjoy in nature at and around Fishhawk Lake. One of the most pleasurable (and free) is to take a walk around the lake or nearby on Greasy Spoon Road--where a plethora of trails and old logging roads will take you far off the beaten track.  Walking meditations ar...

 Lately, there have been some instances where buyers have queried me: "What is YOUR favorite property?" "If it were you, which one would YOU buy?" It's fascinating to me that someone would lay such an important decision at my feet. From an ego-related position, it would seem natural that because ...

It's snowing today in the coastal range of Oregon, Fishhawk Lake area...my ranch in particular. I put out all kinds of seeds and peanut-butter covered bread out for my critters. Today, the oh-so-shy Northern Flicker showed up and dug in for some grub!! This particular bird doesn't stick around if...
