Born in Albany, Oregon and raised in the Mid Willamette Valley; I’ve spent my life learning about the area which has given me a unique perspective of the valley and neighboring communities. Growing up I was very active with the historic Albany World Championship Timber Carnival; the largest celebration in the nation to honor the logging profession. Timber Carnival was a large part of Albany’s community for over 50 years. I grew up volunteering and even competing in the log rolling and boom-run logging events. My hobbies include camping and boating, evening walks with neighbors, traveling, cooking, and gardening. I’m also an avid football fan and enjoy spending time with friends and family. After starting at Prudential as an Office Administrator for the Corvallis Branch, I fell in love with Real Estate. The transition was an easy choice for me as I enjoy working with and helping people. I am dedicated to my clients and strive to ensure they have the smoothest, most painless and pleasant transaction possible. As a REALTOR, I pride myself on honesty, attention to detail, and understanding. My clients’ interests and concerns come first, and I maintain continual communication throughout the home buying process. Whether buying or selling, I am eager to get the job done for my clients while achieving THEIR absolute satisfaction. ~Past Client Testimonials~ "We met Ms. Lindsey when she was conducting an Open House for a client. We had been searching but not aggressively. During the Open House we spoke briefly and she inquired about our needs and we exchanged information. We contacted her several weeks later and we were glad we did. Ms. Lindsey was able to point us to other resources regarding home buying and through this education we were able to better position ourselves. We saw many homes and when things became confusing Ms. Lindsey was able to walk us through the process. Ms. Lindsey is very knowledgeable, professional and patient. We recommend her to anyone searching for their dream home, particularly new home buyers." D. & D. Tafen "It is our pleasure to share our experience regarding a home purchase involving Shantel Lindsey. Miss Lindsey was referred to us by a close friend and relative of hers. Upon meeting Shantel we felt that we had made a good choice of selecting her to assist us in the purchase of a home. Shantel came across to us that she was very interested in what we had to say and what we were looking for. Very soon she demonstrated her willingness to assist by taking us to the next step in the initial steps of the purchase. We saw that Shantel was always prepared during our appointments with her and was very helpful in explaining our options and paperwork. As the process took the necessary steps Shantel always kept us in the loop by clearly communicating with us about the process. Shantel left a good impression with us. Her friendly personality, and her level of knowing the business, gave us a satisfying feeling that we had found someone who we could rely on to assist us in making a major decision. We would highly recommend Miss Lindsay to any who has any questions regarding her competence in real estate. For a young adult in the real estate she did “Great”." L. & D. Meza "Buying a house can be a stressful experience; working with Shantel took a lot of stress off our shoulders. She was attentive and took our needs and budget into consideration when showing us homes. We highly recommend her to anyone looking to purchase a home. Shantel makes herself available around your schedule and is very knowledgeable about the home buying process. One of the best customer service experiences we’ve had in awhile!” S & H Owen "Shantel is great. She listens to your wants and needs and does great staying in your budget. She doesn’t try to get you to spend more then you want. Shantel goes above and beyond to help you find your dream home. She is very personable and friendly. She works with your schedule and makes herself available to show you homes or make an offer. One of the best realtors out there." J & J Tarr

Albany Fire Department

Something to keep in mind during your Independence Day celebrations.

The fire chiefs of Linn and Benton Counties are asking the public to exercise extreme caution with fireworks during this Fourth of July holiday weekend. The hot, dry weather and low snow pack have created fire conditions that are ripe for the ignition and spread of unwanted fires.

Only legal fireworks are permitted for use throughout Oregon. Oregon law forbids possession, use or sale of fireworks that fly, explode or travel more than six feet on the ground or 12 inches in the air. Bottle rockets, Roman candles, and firecrackers are examples of illegal fireworks in Oregon.

There are a number of local, state and federal agencies that have banned the use of all fireworks on their protected lands. Some of those agencies include Oregon Department of Forestry, Oregon State Parks, US Department of Forestry, and the US Bureau of Land Management. Please follow specific laws and rules regarding fireworks use in these jurisdictions.

The safest way to enjoy fireworks is to watch them at a community event and the fire chiefs would strongly encourage the public to watch fireworks shows in place of lighting off fireworks this year. However, the following safety precautions should be followed for adults when using fireworks:
• Light fireworks only on smooth, flat, hard surfaces, and aim them away from spectators, buildings, dry grass, and flammable materials.
• Keep a bucket of water, garden hose, or fire extinguisher handy.
• Do not try to relight fireworks that malfunction.
• Do not carry fireworks in your pocket or hold them close to your face.
• Do not modify fireworks or use homemade fireworks.
• Keep a phone handy and know first aid for burns.
• Ensure all fireworks are extinguished/cold before disposing in trash receptacles

Job fair planned at Lebanon veterans' home

LEBANON — The Edward C. Allworth Veterans Home is looking for 100 more nurses and will hold a job fair from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Wednesday, July 1, according to Judy Gott, assistant director of nursing.
The home is at 605 North 5th St.
“We are looking for Registered Nurses, Licensed Practical Nurses, Certified Nursing Assistants and Certified Medication Aides,” Gott said. “We’re also taking applications for nursing assistant classes to be held through Linn-Benton Community College. We will host the clinicals on site.”
Gott said WorkSource Oregon staff will be present to help applicants who need help preparing a resume or who have questions.
Applicants should bring a photo ID and be aware that if offered a job, they will to take a drug screening.
“We are looking for people with and without experience, but to work here, they must be certified through Oregon State Board of Nursing, or have completed a nursing assistant program,” she said. “They can work for four months without a certificate if they have recently completed a nursing assistant program and then get certified.”
Refreshments, including hot dogs, will be served.
Call Gott at 541-497-7282 or e-mail [email protected].
The Edward C. Allworth Veterans’ Home opened on the northwest corner of the Samaritan Health Sciences Campus last September. It is the second veterans home in Oregon and joined a home in The Dalles.
When full, the facility will be home to 154 veterans and their spouses, but it is about one-third full at this time.
The $40 million project was paid for in part by a 19 cents per $1,000 of property valuation tax levy approved by Linn County residents.
