Moreland Sales Meeting 3.18.2014

For your Blog:

Talkin’ ‘bout my ge ge ge generation!   Who? J Here’s some interesting info on where and why our little mix of boomers, Gen X and Y/ Millennials are buying (or NOT buying)

Does Portland being the number ONE fittest city in the US make me in better shape by osmosis?  I’m saying yes, so don’t confuse me. J Disclaimer – the ads around this Men’s Health article are, ummmm, interesting.

I LOVE interactive maps! This one is a Rent v. Buy map.  There are 100 ‘bubbles’ to hover over, and EVERY ONE shows it’s cheaper to buy than rent. How long will that last? Not sure, but pretty darn cool right now!
