So Does Gail and in this podcast she talks about how your passion is a great foundation for building a successful real estate business. More About Gayle Fishhawk Lake Real Estate Home Search and Community LIfestyle I am a realtor specializing in a slice of paradise called Fishhawk Lake in Birkenfeld, OR. Having lived here full time for 9+ years, and over 11 altogether, I feel well-equipped to share my enthusiasm about vacation or full time living when it comes to one of Oregon’s Best Kept Secrets! This breathtaking lake is home to osprey (fishhawks),salmon, trout, elk, deer, cougar, eagles, otters and many other critters that abound in and around the lake. There is hiking, boating, swimming, birdwatching, even mushroom hunting! We have the 2nd tastiest water in the state and some of the freshest air you’ll ever breathe. There are approximately 180 homes and over 300 lots that are on the lake itself or surrounding it. You can find the rustic weekend getaway or the home with five fireplaces and a theatre that holds about twenty people at a time. The variety of homes and personalities is very eclectic. Many people from all over the states have property or an interest at Fishhawk. And something’s always happening up here in our coastal range community! Check out my website for listings and more photos: http://www.lakehomesatfishhawk.com/ My husband and I gave up the urban sprawl, sold our home in five hours in a suburb of Portland and moved out about 90 minutes from Portland, OR. and an hour from the coast into our 2nd home, at Fishhawk. It was a dream come true–literally as we had put this plan on paper a few years before. It is truly heaven. We are a community that waves at one another even if you don’t recognize the person, watches over each other’s property and have progressive parties like Dock Crawl and Cabin Crawl two times a year, plus many social events for all family members.

Podcast Episode 29 – Marc Davison
Insights for Success Episode 29 – Marc Davison In this podcast with Marc Davison, Bob and Marc talk all things real estate marketing. From why it’s better to establish a niche than being all things to all people, to what real estate agents can learn from how Zillow markets, Marc has deep insights that cut to the core of successful marketing campaigns. READ MORE A lifelong musician, Marc Davison got his first break during his junior year at Princeton, when his band was offered a recording contract from Polydor. The resulting album and single didn’t quite climb the charts like he had hoped. So, he returned to school, received his degree in English and began a short lived career on Madison Ave with Young & Rubicam, one of the worlds preeminent advertising agencies. Two years later, ready to spread his wings again, Davison left Y&R to form DG Entertainment — a managment and PR firm specializing in representating recording and performing artists. In 1997, Davison sold his firm and moved to California to enjoy life without humidity. While attempting to buy his first house in California, Davison had an experience that made him pause. He was told by a real estate agent that the inspector he had hired was a “deal killer.” Ultimately, the inspector was right, and thankfully Davison didn’t buy the house. The knowledge he gleaned from the inspector led him to start a “hobby” curating and licensing valuable real estate content to newspapers and emerging websites. It became so successful that a year later, he had over 400 subscribers, and Inman News hired him as a consultant to help build their brand and syndication business. In 2007, Davison formed 1000watt: an interactive digital branding firm specializing in the real estate vertical with Inman’s then President, Brian Boero. Davison is a published author, an accomplished musician, a father of four and still in love with his wife of 30 years.
