Besides the robust agricultural economy, Malheur County is a popular destination for outdoor recreation. Locals love to fish the waters of Malheur County's many rivers which encompass the Malheur River, Owyhee River, Snake River and their many tributaries. Other fishing hot spots nearby include the Bully Creek Reservoir and Lake Owyhee State Park. Both recreational parks additionally offer opportunities for boating, watersports, RV camping, and hiking.
Vale, Oregon is a small community that lies along banks of the Malheur River where it converges with Bully Creek. Vale is a mere 75 miles northwest of Boise, Idaho so it is close to an airport, hospitals, shopping, and entertainment. It acts as the county seat of Malheur County and is a common stop for travelers driving between western Oregon and the Boise metro area.
The region was a hub for travelers historically as well. Vale was a popular destination for trappers, missionaries and settlers that were journeying along the Oregon Trail. In fact, it was the first stop in Oregon for those making the trek along this famous trail. Vale has beautiful vibrant outdoor murals dispersed throughout the community that depict the journey of these Oregon Trail pioneers. Every year the Mural Society adds another hand painted piece to the collection enticing visitors to return. Another attraction celebrating its Oregon Trail heritage is the Keeney Pass Interpretive Site. The remarkable past can be also witnessed by the many historical buildings throughout the town such as the Rinehart Stone House, the Grand Opera House, the Vale Hotel and many others which were built at the turn of the 20th century.
Local attractions and events include the Malheur County Fair, the annual New Year's Eve Fireworks Display, and the annual Vale Fire Department Crab Feed. One of the most exciting events to attend in Vale is the annual Oregon Trail Days Celebration held the week of July 4th which features a rodeo, car show, pie contest, and a lumberjack competition.

"We appreciated Tim's hard work. We had 2 different real estate companies prior to meeting you, over the time of a couple years they each brought us 1 prospective buyer. You in turn brought us numerous prospective buyers along with several offers, with a final close in under 2 years. We feel that you had a knowledge of where and how to market our business so it was marketed in the right places and to the right people. As you well know when the sale was finalized it was at our asking price with little or no haggling.
We appreciate the fact that you were available 7 days a week, and willing to show the business even on a Sunday with very little notice. Tim Thank you once again.

"We were referred to Jason a few years ago. We were looking for our dream rural property, however, competition was high and inventory was low. Jason found us a great starter home until the right property came along. He continued to keep looking for us; one day we received a phone call that he “thinks he found the one.” We drove out to that day, and we immediately knew Jason was right ~ This was the dream property we had been waiting for! Jason stayed on top of every detail, and we can't thank him enough for listening to all of our needs and wants and finding the perfect property for our family. His attention to detail, care for his customers, integrity, understanding of the market, and work ethic shined every step of the way!"
