Incredible Portland!

October 29, 2009

We all know what a nice place to live Portland is. There is very little one can say to accurately convey how beautiful our city and the area surrounding it are. So rather than try, I will use the wonderful work of Sockeye Creative to show you.


It’s Official! There Will be A Virtual Real Estate BarCamp On November 17th, 2009

October 23, 2009

Some of you may remember REBarCamp PDX from last year at InCube. It was an awesome event. Well, this time it’s going virtual!

On November 17th from 9AM until 4PM PST there will be the first of its kind, Virtual Real Estate BarCamp.

What is it?
VirtualREBarCamp is a One Day, All-Day, Online Real Estate BarCamp.
The REBarCamp phenomenon has exploded over the last year with dozens of in-real-life gatherings where the real estate community comes together to discuss and demystify the current trends in technology and marketing.
The goal of VirtualREBarCamp is to bring this experience to you as opposed to having to bring yourself to it.

  • In place of a rented venue, they will be holding the event online.
  • In place of break-out sessions in rooms, they will we have simultaneous webinars, all day.
  • In place of the hallways, they will be chatting on Twitter, Facebook, Backnoise and TomatoChat.
  • In place of traveling you’ll be able to attend from the comfort of your home or office.
  • In place of an impromptu calendar, we will be filling presentation slots all month.

Attendance is unlimited, and it is still FREE!

And finally, so as to not lose the Social Aspect of the BarCamp atmosphere, They are encouraging volunteers around the country to organize In-Real-Life MeetUps for immediately after the online event. Block off your entire calendar for Tuesday, Nov 17th. None of these webinars will be available after the event. You do not want to miss this. Register here now!

Housing starts down in July

August 18, 2009

We hear a lot of talk about the recession bottoming and real estate coming back. Well, that may be true for some segments in some regions. However, until we start seeing a good recovery in new construction and the jobs associated with home building, we are in the pain zone for a while.

Check this article in USA Today. Good review of where we are.
