Josh grew up in a Portland real estate family. He was buying and selling rental homes and income properties, and managing large multi-family complexes, when most of his contemporaries were just beginning their careers. In Portland, Josh specialized in selling and leasing high-tech commercial properties which eventually took him to Las Vegas. When returning to Oregon to be near family, Josh’s interests turned to residential realty, where, in one year, he ranked in the top 5% of sales agents for one of the largest firms in the country. When his parents retired to a golf course home in Sunriver, Josh was recruited by Sunriver Realty and quickly became one of their most valued brokers in Central Oregon. As Sunriver Realty was devastated by the recent downturn in the market, Strategic Realty saw an opportunity to add Josh’s extensive Portland networks and Sunriver expertise to the team. Josh has an electric enthusiasm that seems to infect his prospects. His natural down-home demeanor generates an instant rapport those he works with. People are quick to trust Josh and this is a tremendous asset to his ability to move properties. When asked about his favorite aspect of selling real estate in today’s market, Josh replies, “My favorite part of the market today is putting together transactions when it appears none exist. There are many opportunities out there right now and I truly enjoy using creativity and old-fashioned hard work to continue to move inventory in a challenging market.” Recently, Josh used his unique style to place a residential property into escrow at 137% of list price.
When the market is in a major correction, few people’s advice is more sought after than Kerry O’Neal’s. Originally hailing from Houston, Texas, Kerry has spent the last 8 years actively making his living from the Central Oregon real estate market. A licensed Principal Broker with over 15 years in real estate brokerage, Kerry has played the role of broker, builder, developer, consultant, and confidant for some of the largest names in Oregon real estate. A gifted public speaker who has given national presentations on subjects from marketing strategies to technology integration, Kerry’s more recent focus has been helping banks, businesses, and individuals find their way through this ever-changing economy. Kerry is continually approached by people with properties that seem “market resistant.” Recently a lender brought to him a piece of high-desert sage brush land that they had received in a default. Working with utility companies, state, county, and local governments and agencies, Kerry attracted the interest of two Fortune 500 companies to the property with projects totaling more than $200MM each, and eventually sold the parcel to Facebook for their new datacenter. In another instance, Kerry recently impressed a banking client by selling two residential properties at prices 122% and 126% of the bank’s recent appraisals in the declining market. Conclusion and Proposal We want to thank you for the opportunity to represent this property, and impress upon you how very qualified we are for this task. Our special talents are not in designing flyers or holding open houses. We are movers of property and we work very hard at that task. We will represent your interest in this asset as if it were our own. The subject property is as unique as anyone could ask for. And we believe that with a unique property we’re best served with a unique sales strategy. We firmly believe that the correct marketing approach for the highest return on this project is to list all of the component pieces as individual sales and take advantage of the higher valuations set by individual sales. At the same time, we need to aggressively approach the kind of purchasers that have the means and interest to acquire the entire package of buildings.
