An Accepted Offer Doesn't Mean A Seller Can Stop Maintaining The Yard I see this time and time again. The Portland home sellers trim and spruce, plant nice flowers and get their yard looking great. Either they've watched tons of curb appeal shows or listened to their agents advice and it worked. ...
Can We Just Stop At The Fruit Stand While We're Out Looking At Homes? Have you ever had those clients that used you beyond belief and then still asked for more? Today I stopped at this fruit stand and it brought back memories of when I was there last. You see, back in 2004 when the ink on my lic...

REDRUM! We Didn't SeeThat On the Door! No, we didn't have any signs like the scene in Stephen King's "The Shining". No REDRUM written on the door to give the buyer a hint that a murder took place just a year earlier. MURDER. Finding out from a neighbor kid that the wonderful home you just purchas...
