Out in the field

Just goes to show…you never know what will happen.

Here, in our brokers’ words, some interesting site inspection tales:

Sometimes the best thing about being a Potlatch Preferred Broker is uncovering hidden gems in the local landscape.  Osterloh says, “One of the most pleasant discoveries I’ve made while working with Potlatch properties is in Wadena County. Huntersville is a small town nestled along the Crow Wing River. It’s at the crossroads of just about everything you can do in Minnesota. You can see canoes on the river while motorcycles, 4-wheelers and horses share the road. It’s a delightful place and has become a must-see stop while showing Potlatch properties.”

Neeley shares that forester Josh Barkhimer once had to perform a dog rescue while showing a property.  He says, “Last year, Josh took a lady out to view a 30-acre tract and she brought her small dog along. They left the dog in the truck while looking around an old house. The dog grew tired of waiting and put his front paws up on the window edge and accidentally locked the doors! It was in the summer and getting hot fast. Thankfully, Josh was able to find a clothes hanger and pry the lock open.”
