Newport News-Times article

My new brokerage printed an article announcing that I joined their company! Here’s the full text…

Advantage Real Estate in Newport is happy to welcome Laren Leland to the team. She brings three years of experience as a broker in Portland.

Leland just recently relocated to the area with her partner in order to spend more time at her family’s farm. Blossomwood Farmstead is located seven miles up Yachats River Road. Together, they are creating a bee sanctuary and permaculture learning garden.

Leland strongly believes in being stewards of the environment in all areas of life. This starts at home with energy efficient upgrades, using sustainable materials, planting pollinator gardens, and installing native landscaping. She is an Earth Advantage Certified Broker and a OSU Master Gardener and can connect people to resources that take these considerations into account.

In addition to working as a broker, she also personally invests in and manages various estates as part of her family’s business. This gives her ongoing practical experience with a wide range of activities, in everything from preparing properties for sale, updating homes for renters, and setting up properties for Airbnb.

Leland is an active supporter of the LGBTQI+ community, wholeheartedly embracing her fellow members by organizing and participating in community events and organizations.

Leland’s professional background is in graphic design and her Master’s Degrees are in Intermedia Art. She spends any free time she can find writing and creating.

She is also looking forward to becoming part of the coastal community. Check out her web site for updates on the farm, real estate posts, and fun projects. You can find it at:
