Branch Agent Meetings September 10, 2014

Moreland Branch Meeting 9.9.2014

For your Blog:

Statistics by Nerdwallet – Wonder what their logo looks like?…..  But I digress. Here’s a list of the Top 10 ‘Oregon Homes on the Rise’. Most are around PDX, but a couple might surprise you!

Houses, Condos, or Apartments, oh my!  Even with little houses, 80% DO want a detached home. Not sure about the whole keeping up the yard thing, though.

I think Portland being #1 is cool, but the title is a bit cumbersome.   Best small domestic restaurant and cocktail and drinks culture city. After how many drinks can you still be under the ‘culture’ umbrella?
