blythe-creek2If there is anyone who knows the communities and activities from Sandy to Mt. Hood, it is certainly Blythe! Although her youth was spent on horses in California and later Lake Oswego, Blythe moved to the area while attending college in 1974. Supplementing her studies, she spent a lot of quality time hiking in the Mt. Hood National Forest, met her late Husband Garry, and never left the western slope of Mt Hood.

As such, she’s had the opportunity to watch the Mt. Hood Corridor slowly grow to a series of small and tight communities, comprised of a population of custom homes and vacation cabins. Blythe and her husband Garry raised two sons on Mt. Hood through the local school system and participated in many extracurricular activities. Her husband Garry spent his career with Mt. Hood National Forest and coached baseball while their sons were growing up. She’s had a chance to get to personally get to know a significant portion of the local population.

Returning a second time to college shortly after the birth of her second son, and receiving a Bachelor of Science in Physical Geography, Blythe began attending real estate training and became licensed in 1985. With that knowledge, supplemented by years of selling Real Estate on Mt. Hood, she has developed an intimate understanding of the local geography, neighborhoods, and market conditions.

During the summers, you’ll find Blythe’s tending her garden and flowering baskets or hiking the back trails of the mountain in search of Mt. Hood’s Buried Forests.

“The most important thing I learned from my husband, was the ability to listen” Blythe will tell you. “Whether a second vacation home or a full time residence, it is an investment. Fulfilling the home ownership dreams of her clients is a passion. Living on Mt. Hood is about lifestyle and represents a high quality of life for locals. Getting the right balance for each buyer is the key. “We will be neighbors in this close knit community.”

So come and let Blythe be your guide to all the best that can be offered here. Just be sure to describe, in as much detail as possible, exactly what you are seeking, and Blythe will be sure to find the perfect match for you!
