Oregon’s best kept secret shh!
Broker Agent Owner
My name is Joy Kingsbury. I have lived and conducted business in Oakridge since August of 1991. I have personally purchased and operated several small businesses in Oakridge. Real Estate sales have been a large part of my business activities for a number of years. For unhurried attention to your real estate needs, please call on me.
I want to thank all my clients on both sides of listings and purchases, property managment clients, owners and sellers. Those who supported me in the Innkeeping business as well. I owe you a huge debt of gratitude for supporting me in my business endeavors over the past twenty-two years here in Oakridge. It has been a journey and you have taught me a lot.
The future looks brighter for Oakridge than ever. Real Estate is always a good investment, and, I intend to encourage it as much as possible. It’s fun to link up investors and those who wish to relocate to the area with the just right properties and I will be available to do that with the usual unhurried attention. It’s always a plus to take the time to find the home or business you will be eager to call your own. There is not a time limit on special.
Oakridge is located about 40 miles southeast of Eugene on Hwy 58 which follows the Willamette river into the Cascade Range. The North Fork of the Willamette, Salmon Creek, Salt Creek and Hills Creek all flow into the Middle
Fork of the Willamette in the immediate Oakridge area. Fish!
At approximately 1200 feet elevation, Oakridge is above the fog that plagues Western US low valleys, but below nearly all of the winter snowfall . What snow does fall ususally does not accumulate or last long. However, if one wants to find snow, the elevation at Willamette Pass on Hwy 58 is 5080 feet ( the ski area there goes to 6600 feet) and is only 28 miles from Oakridge. Ski!
Of course, there are many other recreational opportunities in the area such as golfing, boating, hiking, hunting, exploring, and bicycling to name a few. Below is a photo of the local golf course.
Oakridge will always be a small town; it is surrounded by National Forest, making urban sprawl impossible.
