Branch Agent Meetings August 27, 2013

Moreland Sales Meeting 8.27.2013

For your Blog:

The Second Quarter Gardner Report for Oregon is available.  Be sure to read through it, pick out a point or two, and when you send the link to your clients, be sure to talk about those points.

We’re Happy, and now people know it!   Even though they say Portland is ‘Hippie Hip’, the reasons why Oregon is one of the Top 10 Happy States are ones I kinda like. (Not sure why Nebraska beats us out, but hey…. J)   

Would this be a weird ‘For Sale’ Sign or WHAT? – You’d definitely get press for your listing!

If you buy a home for a dollar and values go up 10%, is your house now worth $1.10? Questions a SELECT FEW might ask in Gary, Indiana. However, I admire the creativity. Here’s to Gary making a comeback! \
