Well folks, we did it.

Two years after its initial launch, the Homes section continues to sit cozy within the Lake Oswego Review and West Linn Tidings newspapers each week.

Thank you.

And I say 'we' did it because this section is a collaborative effort.

The community's response to our expanding newspaper has been embraced with open arms - and plenty of great story suggestions.

The Homes section is a platform to share stories. It explores what makes our homes and real estate industry so unique.

The section showcases area homes, home improvement ideas and the local real estate market.

Want to learn about current real estate trends?

Feel like a thrifty kitchen remodel?

Home improvement tips?

Getting into the garden?

Perhaps there is a home in the community you have always wanted to peek inside or you have something special to share.

Please let me know.

These past two years have been rewarding on so many fronts. I have met amazing people, toured noteworthy homes, shaken hands with hardworking carpenters, real estate agents, remodelers, homebuilders - and the list goes on.

Let's continue our game of show and tell in 2008. This is your section - these are your homes.

Your contribution is encouraged; after all, these are your stories and homes we want to share.

Please submit all story ideas involving unique Lake Oswego and West Linn homes as well as home improvement and decorating ideas to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Or, please call at 503-635-8811 ext. 109.

Together we can showcase what makes these communities so special - our beautiful homes.
