Dog Friendly Neighborhood

Portland, Oregon has been called one of the most pet-friendly cities in America, and it's not hard to see why. With an abundance of pet stores, dog parks, pet-friendly restaurants, and dog walking trails, Portland is a pet owner's dream city. 

Our brokers are proud to live in a city that welcomes all our four-legged friends. If you're looking for your next home in the area, here's what you should look out for to know you're in a pet-friendly neighborhood. 

  1. Trash Cans
    We've all done it, but throwing your dog's poop bag in a neighbor's garbage can while you're out for a walk is a definite faux pas. That's why it's always great to live in a neighborhood with public trash cans on every corner. It's a sure sign that you and your pooch will be happy, and you won't have to be sneaky when you dispose of your dog's waste.

Virtual Game Night Seattle

Who's ready for a much-needed game night? Any night can be a virtual game night with a little help from easy-to-use technologies. Our brokers love game nights and thanks to technology there are many ways to host a virtual game night from the comfort of your home. Here's what you'll need for your own virtual game night in Seattle.

Tech Needed for Virtual Game Night

Before you decide which games you and your friends will play virtually, you must understand the different ways in which you can play these games online. There are essentially two ways to play games online — through video chat or through a dedicated game server. Both of these options feature free-to-use and pay-to-play functionalities. Video chat is as simple as it sounds — you'll use a video chatting system to play the game. The other option, a dedicated game server, involves playing a game through a third-party system.
