Horseback Riding

As the days get colder, the forest gets greener. Sometimes it’s the perfect time to go on a hike when you need a little solace from your day to day routine. Because, there are just less people out on the trail. Other times, it may be a great day to take a horse on the trail and go horseback riding. If you don’t know, Silver Fall State Park has some great horse trails. Whether you’re a hiker or a horseback rider, it’s fun to see these wonderfully beautiful creatures out on the trail.

Meet Jenna Robles

Meet Jenna Robles! Jenna is one of our outstanding principal brokers. She is an integral team player at BST Realty, LLC, and is also a reviewing principal broker and rental manager with us. We truly appreciate her leadership. When Jenna isn’t working, she loves spending time with her family in the pumpkin patch. Especially for the fall season. During this time she’ll take her daughter outdoors to go hiking and explore other wondrous areas of the Willamette Valley…including the visiting adorable horses. Even when it’s raining, she enjoys going puddle jumping with the kiddo. It’s Oregon after all! Jenna brings her customer service background, expertise with fixer-uppers and new construction, and overall fantastic people skills to best serve her clients.

Oregonian Expert at Fixer-Uppers

Jenna grew up in Woodburn, and was brought up with a dad who specializes in custom cabinetry. He would take her along to different projects he was working on, whether it be already built homes or new construction. This is how she began to get inspired by all the possibilities a home could offer, especially with fixer-uppers. She actually helped her parents sell their home before becoming a real estate agent. At the open house she was holding for them, another broker was trying to recruit her. So, even in the very beginning, Jenna was demonstrating skills in real estate that was being noticed and sought after by the real estate community.

Jenna is also a people person and owes that to her career in customer service. She went from being a vet tech to real estate, because it seemed to be more aligned with her life trajectory and real estate was always something she was interested in the first place. We are happy that she joined our team!

Truly Listens to Client Needs

Jenna is a great listener to her clients. She listens to what her clients truly want in a home and strives to find the best options for them. That also goes for sellers who may have specific needs. Jenna says, “it’s less about being a salesperson, and more about understanding what my clients’ needs and wants are…and being a great support system.” Jenna also loves paperwork. Yes, that’s right. She likes dealing with numbers, because she likes digging into the details. This means, that when it comes to real estate contracts, she’s got your covered.

Treasure Hunt

The Willamette Valley is a precious place with lots of outdoorsy things to do, that’s why it’s called a wonderland. This includes one of the most treasured activities – mushroom hunting! As you may know, mushroom hunters don’t usually like to reveal their secret mushroom hunting spots. However, there’s lots of places everywhere you look to find mushrooms. Chanterelle season is almost over, but there will be more seasons right around the corner. And, a word to the wise, if you aren’t going mushroom hunting with an expert or aren’t 100% certain on identifying a mushroom, then just leave it be. The deer will thank you for it. Plus, you can take a photo to show off a new mushroom you’ve discovered, and maybe someone will tell you what they think! Either way, it’s like a treasure hunt.

Hint: This isn’t a chanterelle!
