Which ghost is the best dancer?

The boogie man!

Dear <<First Name>>,

Fall is here to visit us for a bit.  I am pulling out my collection of puffy jackets, mittens and hats while contemplating those pine needles and leaves piling up in my yard.   It's been a gorgeous fall this year and it feels like we may be saying goodbye to the warm weather for a while. 

While all the kids have gone back to school, I have decided to do so as well.  I am taking a beginning guitar class at COCC.   Pretty fun stuff.  Just you wait and see-- I'll be playing "Stairway to Heaven" (ok, maybe just "Mary Had a Little Lamb") in no time flat!

Some big news for me on the job front, I have moved my license to a new company!  I am super thrilled to be a member of the Buccola Group at the Hasson Company Realtors.  It is my dream come true to work with a group of very reputable, successful, experienced brokers at a larger firm that has a great network of other successful Realtors.  

Please don't hesitate to call or email me if you have questions or would like some real estate help.

Meet Val...

What do you do to pay the rent/mortgage? 

I am a rental property owner/manager/glorified janitor/artist.

How and when did you find yourself here in Bend?  
I was born here and returned when it became a nice place to live, and I ran out of money in Colorado.

Central Oregon Market Outlook

While average asking price and sold prices are going up this year as compared to this time last year, the number of sold homes seems to be dropping month over month this fall.  While this is somewhat normal due to the time of year (we are now officially out of the high season for selling homes), compared to last year at this time, we have seen an increase in pending home sales in September of almost 9%. 

If you are thinking about buying or selling real estate in Central Oregon, I'd love to assist you through the process.
