Branch Agent Meetings December 9, 2014

Moreland Branch Meeting 12.9.2014

For your Blog:

Should I tell my insurance agent that I have a trebuchet in my backyard?   That’s actually NOT on this list of items you should tell your agent (but probably should). Good stuff to know and a quick read!

If I said it was a ‘naturally robust and earthy red’, what would “IT” be? Wine would be correct, but in 2015 it can mean drapes, clothes and wall colors – oh my! Ladies and Gentleman, meet the color of the year –  Marsala!

Even if you have a kazillion dollars to spend on your home, it doesn’t mean all you do is good.   Check out some over the top remodels that aren’t going to be recouped when it’s time to sell.

Not going to happen in MY lifetime, but what would a Portland map look like if the sea levels maxed out? This map is an ‘Islands of Portland’ map. Very interesting!
