Lake Oswego Real Estate RMLS Market Action Report January 2020

If you have been following my WordPress blog - ALL ABOUT.....Lake Oswego Real Estate, that has now been shut down.

I had been attacked, and am still being attacked even though there is no longer a blog, by thousands and thousands of nefarious spammers.  While WordPress indicated that would not harm my blog, I did not want all the links they were posting to continue showing on my blog site.  Therefore, I shut it down.
