Tech-Talk Show on Public Access TV –

May 27, 2011

Hector Ariceaga and Amanda Cox were invited to film an hour of TV for Tualatin Valley Community TV a couple of weeks ago. We were very excited to give it a try and we are very happy to say, it turned-out pretty good.  

Tech-Talk Episode 1 - Stage

Our first show covered several topics ranging from Social Media, to Anti-Virus Software, to some Cloud Storage applications. The material is fairly basic but we are receiving positive feedback from viewers, some of which have tech backgrounds. If you are interested, and receive your TV programming via cable in the Portland area, you can find the show airing according to the schedule below. You can also find a complete schedule of programming at

Since then, we filmed another episode, talking about Password Security – Strategies and Resources. We will post that schedule as soon as it becomes available.

In the meantime, a big “Thanks!” to Producers Daryl Love and Linda MacCoy, Director Richard Hatch, and the group of volunteers that generously give of their time, and talent, to make the programming at Tualatin Valley Community TV possible.

If you happen to catch the show, drop us a line. We would love to hear from you.

Head Start Portfolio – Featured Resource

May 17, 2011

First American Title has always lead the title industry in innovative and useful resources. Lately they have been promoting a very nifty product they call Head Start Portfolio. It is a collection of information that allows a real estate broker to receive a large amount of information regarding a particular property. [/caption] In the past, a real estate broker had to navigate several websites and make several phone calls to collect this amount of information. Now, with the a click the mouse or by scanning a QR code, she can request the portfolio from the good staff at First American’s Property information Division in Portland. Real estate brokers often use the information in the Portfolio to help them in consultation with home-sellers, in order to arrive to the best market positioning in this competitive market.


The Head Start Portfolio includes items such as:

  • Site and assessment data
  • Open deeds of trust including Notice of Default (if recorder)
  • Zoning designation
  • Statistical neighborhood report
  • Covenants, conditions, & restrictions (if applicable)
  • Property-specific utility contacts
Given all this information, it is not hard to see why this and other products offered by the Property Information Division (PID) of First American Title in the Portland OR. Metro area have become indispensable for real estate brokers there.

Licensed real estate brokers can request these and other products directly from PID at or by visiting their website at
