Recently, I was out showing property to out of town clients who are hoping to relocate here for their retirement years. As they put it, their community is a bit depressing with "Foreclosure", and "Out of business" signs cluttering their neighobhood. As we drove around Corvallis t

Earlier this week I had a siding contractor come out to give me a bid on some siding I needed replaced. His bid came in at 5k and I thought that was too high so I had another contractor come and take a look. A day later his bid came in at over 12k! Wow, guess who I'm going with.
