Karen RaminhaI have been a realtor for California and Oregon for almost 30 years. Many hours of classes, and seminars, plus my many interests and hobbies help to enhance my skills in the real estate business. My husband, Dan Raminha, who is the son of a Morro Bay ranching family had been visiting Wallowa County for many years, and the first time he brought me to the county, I fell in love with not only the beauty of the area, but also the warm friendly people. This was an ideal location to call home. âItâs the kind of place that just keeps pulling you back until you just have to be here full timeâ. In the past 45 years, Dan and I have made life long friends in the Wallowa Valley. Iâm a graduate Realtorâs Institute, (GRI) Accredited Buyers Representative, (ABR) Council of Residential Specialist, (CRS) and I strive to keep up with the ever changing world of real estate by attending many different schools, seminars, and classes. One of the classes I attended was a strenuous weeklong course, which included subjects on financing, agency, client representation, and other real estate related subjects. I also keep my California Realtors license current and maintain a working relationship with many California Realtors. Currently Dan and I live on ten acres between Joseph and Enterprise and we enjoy camping, horse back riding, hunting, and landscaping our property. I spend my spare time caring for my gardens and ponds. I love to quilt and have made over 75 lap quilts for local nursing home residents. Other organizations I belong to are the Wallowa County Board of Realtors, the Wallowa County Quilt Guild, Oregon Cattle Womenâs Association, NRA, Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, Eagle Cap Shooters Association, National Association of Realtors, and the VFW Womenâs Auxiliary and attend Enterprise Christian Church. I also started Hometown Heroâs Support Group, and mail out about 30 boxes a month to our local soldiers serving overseas. I strive to provide the quality of service everyone is looking for and few find. I look forward to assisting you with all of your real estate needs, and promise to provide you with kind, courteous, and professional real estate service from agents who have a high degree of integrity and honesty. I havenât done my job, if you havenât exceeded your dreams.
