Can you believe this call, especially on a day like today when my head hurt, my back hurt (because I sneezed), and I just didn't feel good already. Someone called me out of the blue, and dared to tell me I was old! Why did they do this? They dared asked me if I was coming to my 20 year high schoo...

She said, "So many people are never willing to think out of the box and when they die, you have to wonder if they regret it. With you I'm never worried about that, you are always think...

Winter is coming to Oregon and so is the freezing rain. If you have trees around your house, you know when the freezing rain hits, some of those limbs will be coming down from the weight of the ice hanging off of them. Now, if those limbs are above your home, then you and your family are in dange...

Most of my clients are first time home buyers, that at one time or another had a home ownership dream. But that dream was crushed, either by another agent or a mortgage broker that told them "NO, you can't own a home at this time".That is when they found me, an agent that wanted to be their dream...
