Good afternoon everyone!
It is BEAUTIFUL outside today and it’s only looking to get better through the weekend. 🙂
Well spring is here, hopefully to stay this time, and that means lots of activities are getting started. Valley Eye Care is gearing up for their annual Sun Show May 12th-19th. This is a great time to get a new pair of prescription (or non) sunglasses. Gotta protect those eyes! Christine [Red Stem] is in full garden and yard maintenance swing. If you’re looking to get some help this summer, better call her now before she’s all booked out. Susan [Let’s Get Comfortable] is looking for just the right client: Someone who is ready to make changes in their home or office and wants to collaborate with a design professional to make their space more comfortable. Speaking of making positive changes – It’s time to schedule a party with Michelle B [Arbonne International] for the best, cleanest, and eco-friendliest beauty products, supplements, and nutrition products to help yourself feel great this spring! …and who doesn’t want 35% off their first order?!
Do you think of cleaning when you think of spring? Michelle V at VS Restoration is ready to book your first …or maybe second if you have muddy fur babies, carpet cleaning of the year. VS Restoration as specializes in duct cleaning, which is very important for maintaining good air quality and minimizing fire hazards. Or maybe spring makes you think of taxes. Wha-wha. Yea, taxes are no fun, but fortunately you can still give yours over to Ilene at A&S Accounting. Her amazing staff will make sure that you get the best refund and that you’re covering all your financial bases. On that financial note did you know that local banks provide 325% MORE funding to small businesses than large national banks? April is Community Bank Awareness Month and we love our local community bank Citizens Bank! Maybe spring gets you thinking ahead to summer and travel. Don’t forget to use Peg at Pathfinder Travel. When things get crazy she’ll be there to sort out your travel plans, flights, and accommodations so that you can continue enjoying your vacation or get home on time from your business trip.
Spring is also when folks start getting excited for summer weddings! Amanda and Kate with Forks & Corks Catering and The Vue are pumped for wedding season 2014 🙂 Forks & Corks is a full service catering company that brings delicious appetizers, buffets, plated dinners, and desserts to all of your special occasions. Kate also manages The Vue – Corvallis, and the Willamette Valley’s, most contemporary all-seasons wedding and event venue! Let them help you say “I DO!” without worrying if the fruit punch is getting warm. But if your wedding planning is getting a little overwhelming then perhaps it’s time for a massage from Amy [Carefree Massage], or an adjustment from Cory Ann [Heresco Chiropractic], or building some better self-soothing tools with Michaela [Michaela’s Counseling]. Did you know that most people reinforce their fears or anxiety with mental pictures? Let Michaela help you turn those anxious or scary scenes into calm and positive imagery.
Our first presenter today was Anne Fahy with Remax Integrity.
Anne went first and decided that her time would be more of a Q&A session. There were lots of questions about foreclosures, short sales, sheriff sales, tax liens, reverse mortgages, trying to sell your house on your own, and what it means to pre-qualify a potential buyer. Anne has been a successful Realtor, even when the housing market crashed Anne managed to continue selling homes – this can be credited to her extensive experience and being willing to work hard for her clients. The number of referrals she gets from past clients, as well as our PEERS group, is testament enough to her skill and care.
“Anne was amazing to work with. My fiancé and I are first time home owners now thanks to Anne! She helped us through all of the steps we needed and provided us with written information to read through ahead of time to help us figure out the next steps. We were able to text her whenever we had questions and received very prompt responses! She even took time on a Sunday to show us the house a second time so that my parents could be involved with our decision making process. I honestly feel that she is the reason we were able to get this house. It was only listed for five days before we put in our offer! We owe her so much and couldn’t imagine having gone through the extensive process of buying a home without her to guide us!”
If you’re looking to buy or sell contact The Fahy Team for a wonderful experience.
