Working as a Team...

by Office, Oregon Properties Real Estate, Inc.

Tips for working with others in a team setting, or office environment:

  • Refrain from statements like "I did it" or "I can do it better alone" - You don't want to insult others who may have contributed or tried to be helpful. Supervisors like to know that you are a team player who works well, collaboratively with others.


  • If you have a large work load and often have to "work late", be conscientious of the feelings you display on the matter. If you're not happy about working late, try not to disclose this to your superiors. Your boss wants to see that you're committed to the job, and that your a "hard worker". In fact, working late with a good attitude will promote you further as a "hard working" employee when review time comes around.

Smart Buyers & Smart Phones...

by Office, Oregon Properties Real Estate, Inc.

There are "Smart Buyers" and "Smart Phones"...but what do you get when you have Smart Buyers using Smart Phones???

SUPER Smart Buyers!

Super Smart Buyers have learned that in our age of technology, they can increase their knowledge simply by scanning a barcode with their smart phones. Real Estate Agents, Lenders, Title Companies, and more, have begun to use QR Bar Codes for marketing purposes. This provides a world of information at the click of a but for any super savvy smart phone user. And if you happen to be looking for real estate, these buyers can take the virtual tours, and learn about each property before they ever sit down to a computer or call a phone number. WOW!

Happy Valentines Day!

by Ric and Nancy Magatelli

Wishing you a wonderful Valentines Day...


Smoke Detectors...

by Ric and Nancy Magatelli

Did you know that smoke detectors go bad over time? Check the dates on your smoke detectors to see if it's time to replace them. Any that are more than 10 years old should be replaced right away, and the same for those without a visible date. 

Protect yourself and your family, by replacing old smoke detectors that have lost their sensitivity over time! 

Real Estate Education...

by Office, Oregon Properties Real Estate, Inc.

You go to a doctor to ask questions about your health. You go to a financial advisor to ask questions about your finances. You go to a contractor to ask questions about your construction projects. You go to school to learn more about your own field of work. 

Why not go to a real estate agent to ask questions about the purchase and sale of real property? We're in this business to assist you with your real estate needs...come by and see us! You don't have to diagnose your own physical health...and you DON'T have to navigate the buying and selling of real estate on your own either! :)
