Gresham’s Bill Kieselhorst helps dedicate clean water wells in Nigeria

Bill and Kathy Kieselhorst

Prudential Northwest Properties broker and veteran missionary Bill Kieselhorst traveled to Nigeria to help dedicate two wells paid for by the congregation of his church, Gresham’s East Hill. Through East Hill’s Advent Conspiracy movement, members of the church donated money that would typically have been spent on Christmas presents this past December. They raised more than $70,000, which allowed them to provide $20,000 in clothing and gift cards to local homeless students, along with purchasing clean water wells for the Nigerian villages of Fadan Karshi and Aban.

Bill, thank you for the difference you are making in the lives of so many people around the world. We’re proud to have you on the Prudential Northwest Properties Team!


Teens Fighting Hunger supports Transitional Youth’s outreach efforts

Amy presents Prudential Northwest Properties president and Transitional Youth founder Bert Waugh Jr. a check for Transitional Youth

Amy Carlton, a senior at Lake Oswego High School, founded Teens Fighting Hunger to help combat childhood hunger. At the Portland Metropolitan Association of REALTOR’s 2010 First Citizen Award banquet today, Amy received the Future First Citizen Award. To date, Amy has donated 2,000 hours to TFH and helped raise $60,000. More than 350 teens have volunteered through the organization.

The organization harnesses the artistic talents of teens to make low cost, high quality products and sell them at local markets. Teens Fighting Hunger selected Transitional Youth as one of their local beneficiaries, and the funding Transitional Youth receives will help us continue to provide evening meals to local homeless youth in downtown Portland. 

Amy, we are so appreciative of your dedication to help fight hunger in our communities. Thank you!


The challenge is on!

The contest runs from April 15 to May 15 and all donations will be given to Transitional Youth, the non-profit organization founded by Prudential Northwest Properties president, Bert Waugh Jr. The winning office gets bragging rights and the satisfaction of knowing they are helping homeless youth.

Stay tuned for progress reports … this is going to be a fun one!

Giving to others this holiday season and beyond…

Giving back to our communities is an integral part of the Prudential Northwest Properties culture. It’s what we do throughout the year. Now that the holiday season is upon us, the Pru crew has stepped up our giving even more. In addition to McMinnville and West Portland’s huge donations of Love Boxes for the soldiers overseas, here’s what a few of our other branches are doing to help their communities…

Hillsboro Branch Adopting a Family for the Holidays! The Hillsboro Branch has adopted the Anderson Family which consists of Mom, Dad and 2 boys, one with autism. Dad was recently laid off. Thank you Hillsboro Branch for giving back to the community and helping those in need!

Damascus and Clackamas Branches Provided Toys to Kids in Need! They collectively raised over $1,000 and then purchased and wrapped holiday gifts for 74 kids at the Annie Ross House (the only shelter in Clackamas County that accommodates entire families) and Clackamas County Women’s Shelter holiday party. Thanks to all the members of both branches for carrying on this annual project spearheaded by Amy Nelson!

Scappoose Branch Donating and Giving Back! The Holiday Spirit is strong at Prudential Northwest Properties! Many thanks and kudos to the Scappoose Branch in donating money to Toy & Joy, as well as giving money and food items to Columbia Pacific Food Bank. A special nod goes to Lisa Frahm and her daughters for braving the cold as Salvation Army bell ringers at Fred Meyer. Thank you, Scappoose!

Metro Branch Reaches Out to Seniors this Holiday Season … The branch is “adopting” several seniors at the Rainbow Adult Living Center and will be providing gifts to brighten their holiday season. Thank you, Metro!

Columbia Tech Center Wraps for Transitional Youth this weekend! Chad and the gang from CTC are gift wrapping at the Westfield shopping center on the 13th and proceeds go to Transitional Youth. Thanks, CTC!

Sandy Toy Drive

Sandy Toy Drive

Sandy Branch is holding their 29th Annual Toy Drive! The longstanding tradition of collection toys for kids in need carries on in the Sandy community. They also shipped off many Love Boxes to the troops overseas. Thank you, Sandy Santas!

Food for the Hungry in Central Oregon – Thanks to all of our Central Oregon agents for participating in the Crook County Realtor’s Christmas party and food drive for St Vincent D’Paul. They contributed over $800, and every dollar donated purchased 7 lbs of food. In total, they were able to provide over 5,600 lbs of food which will help feed about 90 families. Our offices provided over 700 lbs of food. Excellent job, Central Oregon crew!


Linda McClellan installed as CCAR board president

Linda McClellan

Prudential Northwest Properties’ Clark County NW Realtor Linda McClellan was installed as the 2010 board president of the Clark County Association of Realtors during the group’s annual installation and awards luncheon yesterday at the Heathman Lodge. McClellan was sworn in with four new officers and 10 board members who will preside over the association next year. The group will focus on lobbying efforts on behalf of the industry, said McClellan, who foresees a better year for local home sellers in 2010. In Clark County, home sales have made year-over-year gains since June, although sales are still off from peak years in 2005-07. “It would be really nice to see this trend continue,” McClellan said.

Linda joins these Prudential Northwest Properties brokers in leadership of their local REALTOR Associations during the 2010 term: David Tangvald, GRI – Portland Metropolitan Association of Realtors, Lisa Frahm – Columbia County Board of Realtors. Thanks to all of these pros for giving back to our industry!
