Prudential Pacific Properties is the

Del loves real estate and working with people as is evidenced by the vast amount of public service he has given his community and profession over the years. His grandfather settled in this area in 1888 and served as the city recorder of Florence in the year 1900. Del grew up north east of Mapleton in a valley called Indian Creek. After graduating from Mapleton High School, he went to work in the lumber industry which he retired from in 1991. Del moved to Florence in 1959 where he has resided ever since. During those years he gave much to the community that he loved. He served 37 years on the Florence Volunteer Fire Department, 8 years on the Florence City Council, 8 years on the local school board, and worked through the chairs of the local Elks Lodge raising money for charity. While in the lumber industry Del was instrumental in forming a 500 member educational association for the lumber surfacing segment of the industry and was featured in the Lumberman´s Magazine for his work in organizing a half day educational seminar for their annual trade show.
With the down turn in the forest products industry in the late 80´s Del turned his attention to land development and formed an S-Corp that subsequently developed a 180 acre gated manufactured home community in north east Florence consisting of 449 lots and homes when it was finished in 2004. In 1998 as the development was starting to wind down Del decided to get his real estate license to take advantage of the experience and contacts he had made during the course of the development. He affiliated with Pacific Properties which soon became Prudential Pacific Properties and now he feels like when he is marketing a property he has the power of the whole Prudential Team. Del is just as comfortable with the large land tract deal as he is with the individual residential home that has to be just right for his customer.
During the course of his real estate career he has kept on giving to peers by serving them as the president of the Central Oregon Coast Board of Realtors® for three different years and received the Realtor of The Year Award in 2003. In 2007 he served the Oregon Association of Realtors® as chairman of the state wide, 19,000 member organization´s Political Affairs Kog and as a member of its executive board of directors.
