National TV Network A&E meets with Shanon on their new Real Estate Reality show coming to Medford OR
Updated: Jun 8, 2022
There’s something for everyone in this valley and it’s hard to find someone who regrets moving here. I moved to Medford about six years ago in search of a place with a good economy and a community that promotes healthy lifestyles. After obtaining my Master's degree in International Business in Southern California, I took a job at Harry & David sourcing import commodities and negotiating contracts with overseas suppliers. As I analyzed data, price trends, and market values I took note of the growing real estate market right here in our valley. Growing up in a small town in Idaho and completing thirteen residential moves myself, I decided to unpack the boxes, commit to hanging pictures and put down roots. Like many, I found that Medford provided everything I was looking for.
Now I spend every day trying to convince people why they should move to Medford, but it honestly doesn’t take much to convince them because once they get here and see the valley for themselves, they’re sold.
They usually get off to a great start from the ease of getting here via I5 or the Rogue Valley International Airport, and while they cruise around town they are then easily amazed that our average commute time is less than twenty minutes.
They’ll explore and venture around the valley by checking out the golf courses, wineries, restaurants, trails, and of course tour homes as they discover
opportunities to work, play, and stay here.
The love of my job and enthusiasm for recruiting caught someone’s attention and a few months ago I was contacted by national TV network A&E- to appear on their new real estate reality show, “My City’s Just Not That Into Me.” The show explores an issue facing many home seekers today – loving their current city, but wanting to move to places like Medford to improve their quality of life.
,s and Producers were excited to highlight Medford’s low c recreational activities, dining, and of course the excellent real estate market this side of the country offers. Jackson County Residential Statistics show that home prices in Jackson County are up 8.1% over last year, with a median price range of $208,600 and 81 more homes sold in 2010 than in 2013. Yet even with higher prices and home sales on the rise, we had a blast exploring the area and showing them all the great things Medford has to offer.
I’m excited that this show will help put Medford on the map so others can see the reasons why we love to call this place home. This national visibility is a great growth opportunity for us to sustain our local economy and embrace diversity while leaving plenty of room to preserve our small-town feel at the same time.
