This is a test post -- I'm editing an older post and updating it to see where it lands.  I did this once and it was "re-published" as a new post.  I'm seeing if this will happen again.  All I want to do it edit a few oldies but goodies.  Now that I know what content is all about . . .    Laurelhu...

The Sexton Mountain neighborhood is one of Beaverton's finer, up-scale neighborhoods. Homes were built, for the most part, circa mid-80, and into the early '90's. But the styles, combined with form and function make this area highly sought after. Larger lot sizes, compared to some of the newer de...

So, you're driving down the street and you see a FOR SALE sign.  You've been in the market to purchase for awhile, and think you know all about real estate.  You think that by calling the agent who is featured on the for sale sign yourself, you'll get information about that property . . . "Hi, I'...
