Hello Portlanders, and a happy weekend to you. Here is our weekly Portland blog with our Portland events rundown, neighborhood report, and more Portland happenings in the Rose City. This week heralds the return of Cirque Du Soleil to Portland, this time with an acrobatic show called Kooza. It's expensive, but if you have never seen a Cirque show, it might be fun to check it out. Also, with spring in full bloom, you might want to get outside and take a trip to beautiful Trillium Creek Park, where the 30th Annual Trillium Festival is underway today. I am feeling the need to get outside and into gardening mode this weekend, but it's supposed to be cool and rainy off and on this weekend: still, there could be some sunny patches out there to enjoy. In addition to gardening fun, I have also been looking forward to biking! If you're in the market for a new bike to ride around Portland this spring and summer, then this weekend you will definitely want to head down to the Oregon Convention Center for The Bicycle Show's bike extravaganza. See all makes and models of bicycles, including--of course, some of our own handcrafted Portland bikes. You are sure to find your dream bike for hours and hours of riding happiness throughout our amazingly bike-friendly city.
Whatever fun Portland events you choose to do, have a great week in Portland!

Concordia Alberta Neighborhood Real Estate Report
By Ross Seligman
Concordia is located in Northeast Portland. It is bordered by the Alameda, Sabin, Vernon, Woodlawn, Sunderland, Cully and Beaumont-Wilshire neighborhoods. Together with Vernon, Concordia is part of the Alberta Arts area. For more infomation, click here: http://www.portlandneighborhood.com/concordia.html
In my monthly Portland real estate report, I always
talk about how each individual neighborhood is a micro-market. If you are
looking to buy or sell in a particular neighborhood, the most crucial
information that you need to know is what is going on in that neighborhood.
In this situation, the overall Portland market report is less important and
the national real estate report is just about useless. This posting is a
real estate report for the Concordia Alberta neighborhood of all homes in
all price ranges. Feel free to request particular neighborhoods in which you
are interested in buying or selling and I am be happy to do a report, just
contact me on this forum or at: http://www.propertiesofportland.com.
About Ross: I am a real estate broker with Windermere, a writer and contributor to PortlandNeighborhood.com, and a professional musician in our beloved Portland. I have two bands: Echo Helstrom and the Echo Jazz Trio. Learn more about Ross here by reading his PortlandNeighborhood profile.
