InEugene Real Estate is Eugene’s newest real estate brokerage, located at the corner of East Broadway and Oak Street. Eugene native and principal broker Ben Fogelson says he is being “highly particular about selecting agents” for his brokerage. “Being a high-producing agent doesn’t get you in the door,” he says. “We are not, nor will we ever be salespeople. InEugene agents are informed guides, intelligent advocates and caring neighbors.” Over the next 12 months, InEugene Real Estate plans to hand out wool blankets to homeless, support local artists by hanging work and participating in Lane Arts Council First Friday ArtWalks, loan out cruiser bikes for those on the move and underwrite both the YMCA and the Lane United soccer teams. See or call 514-4567.
