ONE-HALF MILLION DOLLARS
Represents in round numbers the amount of land which we
have succeeded in disposing of during the past two years for
our clients in Hood River Valley. Not at all bad we are
thinking considering the rather unsettled condition of the
general real estate market of the country during that time.
We are rather proud of the record which accounts for our
"blowing our horn" in this manner.
In view of the fact that so much property has been sold
from our lists we find that we are short on some few classes
of places, and we would be very glad to have listings on any
good properties that are for sale in the valley, which we do
not now have.
We are now making up our lists for the coming season's
work which we anticipate will be a good one, and would be
glad to have those who have their propert listed and those
who wish to give us new listings, call on us as soon as con
venient. INSURANCE OF ALL KINDS IN STANDARD COMPANIES ONLY
