Successful Closing!

Congratulations!
We closed two transactions in the same week.  A feat well deserved!
I appreciate my clients and work by referrals.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Judy has been professional, courteous, and hard-working during the selling process. Our property was small and a very hard sell. However, she treated this sell just as importantly as if it was a multi-million dollar property. We appreciate all the hard work she does for us. I appreciated Judy’s attitude towards this project. It was fun and I’m sure challenging for her. A very difficult property to sell but she never gave up. We also have our home for sell and have made sure she is our realtor on this project. We truly enjoy working with her.  – Steve & Patty Nelson

Senior Transition Story

 

When my husband passed away last September, I had to sell my house sooner rather than later.  I was devastated at selling our house that we built ourselves, and loved it every day we lived in it.  There were so many concerns attached to selling.  Can I sell it fast enough to get out from under the payments?  Will it sell in the winter?  What will I do with all the stuff?  Where will I go?  It was all so overwhelming that it became a stressful nightmare.

Then I found Judy. Even though it was still so sad, she took me through all the steps with her unbelievable knowledge, networking and always with a smile and upbeat attitude.

My house sold in days because of all her hard work and expense in putting it out there.

Then I panicked!  Where will I go?  It was a short escrow and I was having no luck in finding a place to live.  Again, Judy came to the rescue through her never ending networking.  She found the perfect place for me and it all came together.

Selling and moving is hard and stressful no matter what the reasons.  I feel so fortunate to have taken someone else’s recommendation and called Judy.  She was everything I could have asked for to get me through that difficult time.  – Judy Holdsworth, Eugene Oregon

Top 3 characteristics of the McKenzie River Valley

that drew you to live or purchase property

  • The Beauty of the McKenzie River and natural surroundings, resort-like beauty, views, rural setting with small rural communities, good to raise family, sense of community where you get to know neighbors and location is within an hour of town. USFS property across river and bordering many properties allowing the natural setting to be undisturbed.
  • River homes are what we love as a couple w/ children. Lack of people, lack of traffic, huge trees around my house, the critters and the price was right.
