Wren Shiffler shares Portland Afoot neighborhood information with a Kenton resident.
Wren and Tatiana, two Prudential Northwest Properties Metro branch Brokers with a keen interest in selling “car-lite” housing, have partnered with local non-profit Portland Afoot to share helpful information about area neighborhoods.
By hand-delivering a two-page publication featuring an area’s WalkScore, access to Zipcars, nearby bike shops, bus frequency, bikeways, and other helpful information, the two are spreading the word about sustainable/low-impact living and meeting local residents and homeowners.
To learn more, or to suggest which area they should focus on next, contact Wren at firstname.lastname@example.org or Tatiana at email@example.com.

In an effort spearheaded by brokers Marilyn Mason and Steve Oleson, the Prudential Northwest Properties Lake Oswego branch office adopted a family in need for Christmas. Gifts of coats, shoes, toys, money, gift cards, food baskets, and clothing brought unexpected joy to four kids and their mother.
Here is an excerpt from a thank you note Steve received from the mother: “We thank you all from the bottom of the hearts; I couldn’t have done this without you. It has been a very hard year financially as well as personally. Words cannot begin to describe how much your help was appreciated. Your gifts provided us with a delicious Christmas dinner, and left my children smiling. It is truly a blessing to have amazing people around like you.”
To everyone who participated in brightening the holidays for this family, and for so many others in the communities we serve, we thank you for your generosity. You make us proud.
When Prudential Northwest Properties real estate broker Beth Keyser heard about a local family whose home was burglarized shortly after they moved to Newberg, she jumped into action and organized a drive to help replace the items stolen.
The family had moved from New Jersey shortly after the father lost his job as a police officer and the mother lost her job as a county employee. Their youngest child has expensive medical needs, so Beth felt, “we can’t over bless them.” Word spread quickly throughout Newberg and local churches and strangers at the grocery store started donating … Santa even came into the picture and delivered a bag of goodies for the kids that filled up their whole living room with presents!
“That’s what Christmas is all about,” says Keyser, “it’s about helping and loving and sharing. My family has enough.”
Beth, thank you for making such a difference in the lives of this family, and for organizing such a wonderful community wide giving effort. You make us all very proud.
