We really liked Pam’s willingness to point out issues with the houses (as well as positive things!)  She was very frank and we learned a lot from the whole experience.  She was totally willing to tell us NOT to buy a house, and we ended up with the nicest house that we saw!  It’s clear Pam is very experienced and has good connections with businesses in town.  She was able to get things done.

My unique background as a lifetime local resident, licensed attorney, education in business, and mediation training, create an extraordinary skill set that is ideal for representing your real estate interests!

Lifetime Local Resident

I am proud to be a life-time resident of Lane County, 5th generation Oregonian, and 3rd generation real estate broker. I especially appreciate the greenery and fresh air that we are lucky to have here in Oregon. When I’m not helping people with real estate, I enjoy learning new things, hiking, reading, traveling, and spending time with my 15 year old son…when he lets me!

Licensed Attorney
I passed the Oregon State Bar in 2012 and my legal education and license have proven to be valuable resources in the world of real estate. As your real estate agent, I will provide you with exceptional representation to meet your real estate goals.

Double Duck!
I graduated from the University of Oregon Law School in 2012 and completed the Business Law program, Estate Planning program, and the Tax Law program. I am a double duck having also earned my BA in Political Science and a minor in Business from the University of Oregon.

Mediation
I became a certified mediator in 2011 and have since spent some time volunteering with a local mediation clinic. Mediation and Real Estate are not so different. Two parties, with one mutual goal, but different interests to accommodate.

Accredited Luxury Home Specialist
I offer my services to buyers in all price ranges, and regardless of whether you are buying a $100,000 property or a $10,000,000 property, I am committed to providing all of my clients with excellent service. However, I am also an Accredited Luxury Home Specialist (ALHS). This provides my clients within the Luxury Home Market, a specialized service and provides me with additional tools to expose luxury homes to a target audience looking within that market.

I have been helping people buy and sell their homes since 2007 and would love to help you find a little                                                    oasis in the sweet spot of Oregon to call your own!

Everyone was very easy to work with, attentive and professional. Communication was frequent and prompt.  We truly felt our Agent wanted what was best for us.

We usually have  recommendations for improvement, but Tawnya was so fantastic that we really can’t think of anything to add- she handled every obstacle splendidly.

Thank you for making the home buying process less stressful- especially for us, as first time home buyers!

”Testimonials”

Thank you for choosing Eugene’s Alternative Realtors®! Whether you are selling your home, a first-time buyer, or an experienced real estate investor, you are in the right place.

I’m that down-to-earth, Oregon chick, who knows all the local hot spots. As a lifelong resident of the Eugene area, I would love to share my knowledge of the region with you.

After a stint in the non-profit sector and an even longer stint as a paralegal, I made the jump to the wonderful world of real estate, bringing with me a wealth of experience and some serious negotiating skills. 13 years as a paralegal taught me that I am undoubtedly a people person. I love to hear your stories, help you solve problems, and achieve your goals. My aim is to make your home-buying experience the most efficient and rewarding it can be.

As the daughter of a carpenter and an interior decorator, I have a keen eye for home improvements that could benefit you whether you are looking to sell your home or purchase a home that may need some updating.

I am a mother to a delightful son and some truly beautiful fur-babies. Small/urban farming is my passion. I can give you all the reasons to raise your own backyard chickens and miniature dairy goats! In the summer when I am not tending to my critters or garden I can usually be found camping and exploring with my son or in a creek somewhere catching crawdads.

We have made Oregon our home our entire lives, and warmly welcome you to our northwest paradise.

I look forward to helping you with all of your real estate needs!

For every 100 families living in poverty on the West Coast, there are no more than 30 affordable homes

 

(National Low Income Housing Coalition Image)

The West Coast is defined by progressive politics, booming tech economies and — increasingly — affordable housing crises.

A new study from the National Low Income Housing Coalition looks at the number of affordable units in the U.S. compared to the number of “extremely low-income” households, defined as families living at or below the poverty line. The study found that no state in the country has an adequate supply of rental homes for that group. The most extreme shortages are in a handful of states, including Washington, California, and Oregon, where tech hubs are driving income inequality.

On the West Coast, there are 30 or fewer affordable homes for every 100 extremely low-income families, according to the report. No state in the nation has more than 60 affordable rental units for every 100 families living at or below the poverty line. What’s more, 71 percent of extremely low-income households spend more than half of their incomes on rent and utilities.

The study, first spotted by CityLab, assumes that housing costs should be no higher than 30 percent of a household’s income to be “affordable,” a commonly used standard.

Of the 7.5 million existing rental homes that extremely low-income families can afford, 3.5 million are occupied by higher-income households. In other words, families who need affordable housing the most don’t necessarily get it.

The Low Income Housing Coalition estimates it would take an additional 3.7 million affordable rental homes to meet the needs of the 11.2 million American families living at or below the poverty line.

The affordable housing shortage is acutely felt in metropolises like Seattle and San Francisco, where job growth in the tech industry draws an influx of newcomers with generous salaries in need of housing.

Outside of tech, wages haven’t kept pace with rising housing costs. On average, a full-time employee working 40 hours per week would need to earn between $17 and $21 per hour to afford a “modest one-bedroom or two-bedroom” apartment, according to the report. That is more than double the national minimum wage of $7.25.

We had an Exceptional experience.  Todd has gone above & beyond what we expected , and we would not own a home if not for his efforts.  Being out of state, and so far away would usually make buying a home in our limited time span impossible.  With Todd not only was it possible it was efficient and painless.  The service was exceptional.  We would definitely recommend Todd to anyone buying a home in Eugene.
