October 2020 Homewardbound Newsletter: Masks Not Just for Halloween Anymore

October 2020 Homewardbound Newsletter: Masks Not Just for Halloween Anymore


If only we would’ve known what the new decade had in store for us wearing masks everywhere, staying 6 feet apart, not shaking hands, planning ahead for routine visits and shopping, online celebrations and school, working from home, Zoom meetings and the list of restrictions goes on…and THEN! Here come the protests. People longing for change and tired of not being heard. But THEN! Protesters and rioters from the most extreme sides of the issue(s), demonstrating, and sometimes ranging, night after night in downtown Portland. OK, now we’ve adjusted to COVID precautions AND to the freedom of speech being expressed every day for countless days on end.

What else could be looming just around the corner this year?? Devastating forest fires!!! The fires ranged out of control and way too close for comfort for most of us. Smoke forced us to take even more precautions to protect ourselves and each other. So at the same time, we’ve all had to navigate these unprecedented historic events-the real estate market has continued to thrive. Every day sincere buyers and serious sellers talk to me and my company about their wants and needs. Every day we are still able to offer our most popular guarantee-

“Your Home Sold GUARANTEED or We Will Buy It!*”

As a result of working with over 5,000 families over a 20-year time span, we have developed a special program to help home sellers and homebuyers. We will guarantee the sale of their present home at a price agreeable to them and in the unlikely event their home does not sell, we’ll buy it. Now that is how to experience something positive for yourself in Portland during 2020. AND remember… YOUR referrals help the Community. My team and I are addicted to helping you and those you know buy or sell the place they call home. In fact, it is a race to help as many as possible so we can GIVE more away. A quarter value at her company is “you reap what you sow”. Therefore, our Mission is to Go Serve Big!!! Serve you, serve those you refer to us, and of course, serve a very worthy cause… The great work being done at Friends of the Children.

FRIENDS leads the way in restoring lives one child and one community at a time.

As a leading non-profit, Friends depends on sponsorships and donations to continue its leading-edge service. We now commit to donate a portion of our income from real estate sales to Friends to help them continue serving the needs of the children who need it most in our community!

Who do you know considering buying or selling a home you could refer to our real estate agent sales team? Not only will they benefit from our award-winning real estate service, a very worthy cause will benefit as well. 

So, join me in celebrating the freedom of these two beautiful countries who have inspired others to do the same. I hope my newsletter this month inspires you to pursue happiness and join us in helping others do that as well. 

You and your referrals mean more than ever to my team and me. As we move forward thru this red-hot summer, please know we are extremely thankful for you and you being a special part of our business. 

So When you hear me say


With all my appreciation.

Being a Northwest native and growing up here on the west side- I have seen many things change. Throughout my lifetime of travel around the world, our town was always hidden in secret. Literally undiscovered. Wherever I would go, I would reference ‘north of California’ because it seemed no one had heard of Oregon! But at the turn-of-the-century things begin to change, since then the metro Portland area has grown from 1,900,000 to 2.5 million people. One thing has not changed though, and that is a certain segment of children that seem to be left behind. They start life at a disadvantage because their parents are not available to pay attention to them, let alone nurture and spend time with them. Combinations of hatred, drugs, alcohol, prison, poverty, and despair have torn these families apart. 

It’s hard for me to admit, but this subject hits WAY too close to home for me. Therefore, I have always had a heart for children in situations like this. Last year I had an opportunity to meet a remarkable man, Mr. Campbell, who created a very successful program that provides real help for these children. The Friends of the Children model pays a professional mentor to become a stable force in each child’s life. It empowers the highest risk children by making them feel wanted, loved, and respected. Because of the encouragement they receive, they begin to make good decisions about their life, school, and relationships. Most all of them actually break the cycle of destruction they have been born into.

I encourage you to visit their websites at friendsofthechildren.org + friendspdx.org and read about the life-changing work they are doing in our community!
