Please join us on Monday, September 15th for an afternoon of golf to benefit homeless and at-risk youth served through Transitional Youth, a local non-profit organization founded by Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Northwest Real Estate’s Chairman, Bert Waugh Jr.

This shotgun scramble will kick off at 12:30 at Tri-Mountain Golf Course in Ridgefield, WA. The foursome registration fee of $400 includes boxed lunches, greens fees, practice balls, dinner and prizes, plus a great time! Click here to register.

Our company is sponsoring the ever-popular “Whack-A-Waugh” contest again. We’ll place a huge headshot photo of Jason Waugh, our President & CEO, a reasonable distance from a tee and whoever hits his image on their drive gets their name included in a drawing for a special prize. 🙂

It’s sure to be a great day, so please come out and help us raise funds for youth in need. Learn more about Transitional Youth here.

Our Team in Sandy Makes the Holidays Brighter for Local Kids

BHHS-Northwest-Sandy-Branch-Toy- Drive

The annual toy drive in our Sandy branch is a HUGE success!

As they have done for over thirty years, the wonderful brokers and staff in our Sandy branch office held their annual toy drive to help make the holidays brighter for local children. They invite their clients and business partners — the whole community really — to their annual Open House party and ask that everyone bring a toy. The brokers supply the food (and more toys) and as you can see in the photo, it was a tremendous success once again!

Local Kiwanis members pick up the bounty and distribute it with food baskets to families in the area that could use a little help. They typically put about 400 food boxes together, and because they have information on file about the families (size, number of kids, etc.) they are able to do a great job of matching appropriate toys to a wide range of kids.

To everyone in the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Northwest Real Estate Sandy office, a big THANK YOU for supporting your community. You make us proud!


Bagley & Associates’ Client Appreciation Event Helps Local Homeless Youth

Bagley and Associates client appreciation Movie Day 2013

Kathy Bagley, Amy Nelson and Tanya Kathan stand with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Northwest Real Estate Chairman Bert Waugh, Jr. in front of the theater where they held their recent Client Appreciation Movie Day.

For the 12th consecutive year, the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Northwest Real Estate team Bagley & Associates has held their annual Movie Day, a client appreciation event, at Oak Grove Cinemas in Milwaukie. What started as a way of saying ‘thank you’ to their clients with free movies and snacks has become an annual opportunity for their clients to help youth in need; and they love it.

Not only does the team invite their guests to bring the whole family, they also ask them to bring a donation for local homeless and at-risk youth. Longtime supporters of Transitional Youth, the Portland-based non-profit organization founded by company Chairman Bert Waugh Jr., these real estate pros from the Clackamas office use the event as a means of collecting warm clothing and supplies every year.

As a result of nearly 300 of their clients’ generosity, two vehicles packed full of blankets, sleeping bags, backpacks, jackets, hoodies, socks, clothes and miscellaneous donations delivered the goods downtown to Transitional Youth. Not only that, they raised $854 in cash donations for the organization.

Kathy, Amy and Tanya, we are proud you represent our company and we appreciate your big hearts and those of your clients. Thank you for bringing your community together to help others!

Yamhill County Brokers Support 2013 Oregon Special Olympics Summer Games

Ron Schock and Larry Hammer 2013 Oregon Special Olympics Summer Games

Ron Schock and Larry Hammer

Prudential Northwest Properties Managing Principal Broker Ron Schock and his team of community-minded brokers from Newberg, McMinnville and Yamhill recently sponsored and volunteered at the Oregon Special Olympics Summer Games in Newberg. As a returning corporate sponsor of the event’s Victory Dance, they had the pleasure of assisting and interacting with the athletes and attendees.

2013 Oregon Special Olympics Summer Games opening ceremony

Scene from the 2013 Oregon Special Olympics Summer Games opening ceremony.

In Ron’s words, “There were over 1600 Special Olympic athletes that paraded into the Newberg High School Athletic complex to a grandstand filled with cheering and supporting fans, many of which were people from the community that we invited to attend. Our Prudential NW Brokers were able to help with handing out programs and noisemakers as the community entered the stands and we also helped guide the parade of athletes in and assisted them at the ceremony that night. At the end of the ceremony, we helped clear the space so the athletes, coaches, etc., could party, dance and celebrate their accomplishments.

Again, as in last year, it was a very humbling but joyful experience for those in attendance, and the brokers that hadn’t been there last year got a clear understanding of what a heartwarming experience the Special Olympics Summer Games really is.”

A shout out of thanks to Larry and Judi Hammer, Lucy King, Laura Oviatt, Kari Fahrenkopf, Rob Molzahn, Pam, Phil and Kelsey Irish, Karen Frketich, Pete and Linsey Macy, Taylor Burke, Dixie Hancock, Ann and Mariah Schock and all those who helped to make this a special experience for the athletes.

Great job Yamhill County brokers!! Here are a few photos from the event…

Prudential Northwest Properties Launches Veterans to Brokers program

Prudential Northwest Properties Veterans to Brokers program

Prudential Northwest Properties is pleased to announce the launch of a new program specifically designed to help veterans become licensed real estate professionals and give them an opportunity to create a rewarding career.

Through the Veterans to Brokers program, our company will reimburse the major startup costs new brokers incur, including licensing class expenses, exam fees and first year association dues, which can reach up to $2,300 or more.

Jason Waugh, President & CEO of Prudential Northwest Properties, said, “We’re implementing this program because we appreciate the sacrifice our veterans make to serve our country and we want to do what we can to help them in return. The discipline, commitment and hard work veterans put forth in the military are all traits that would serve them well in the real estate industry. The men and women that serve our country deserve an opportunity to create a rewarding career when they return to civilian life, and we want to help them achieve that.”

The Prudential Northwest Properties Veterans to Brokers program is the first of its kind in the company’s marketplace, which covers northern Oregon and southwest Washington.
