Ankeny Row - Urban Livability in True Portland Fashion

6.6.12 by the Green Hammer Team

Pocket Neighborhoods are sprouting up across the nation, and Green Hammer is proud to be designing one of Portland's most artful and thoughtfully developed projects. Ankeny Row is also a milestone for us. It is our largest project yet to evolve through our design-build process, and it promises to provide the best in urban livability.

Our clients' vision* started seven years ago with the idea to live near friends, on a smaller footprint, in a walkable neighborhood, and to have a lifestyle that would help them stay healthy during their retirement. Many Portlanders share these ideals- look at the highly sought-after communities of Sunnyside, Cully, Clinton, and Multnomah Village. Ankeny Row will be part of the Buckman neighborhood, located on its namesake bikeway at SE Ankeny and 25th Avenue. Built with traditional materials in a way that is contemporary yet reflective of Portland's craftsman tradition, the final project will comprise five row homes, a flat, and a community room around a garden-courtyard opening to the street. Details as well as scale of Ankeny Row will reflect the homes and small businesses on the street. A 4-block walk from a grocery store, movie theater, and some of Portland s best restaurants and cafes, the vibrant living experience at Ankeny Row extends beyond the home out into the bustling neighborhood.

Pioneering shared services is also something Portlanders do well. Think of Getaround car-sharing and the backyard farming movement. Ankeny Row is designed for owners to take full advantage of shared amenities, such as a shared Smart car with off-street parking, spa, sauna, and the central courtyard designed to grow seasonal veggies and fruit trees.

Reducing their environmental footprint is why the founders chose this urban location, where the Walk Score is an impressive 86. The project designed to meet the Passive House standard will use 70% less energy compared with similar homes and will allow for enough solar PV panels to allow all six units to achieve Net Zero Energy! All wood used to build the structure will come from local forests and carry the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) label, ensuring that the forests that built this home remain healthy and productive long into the future.

* We are as excited as our clients about the design and quality of life that this pocket neighborhood will offer. Currently 3 of the 6 units are available, so if this sounds like your ideal home, we'd gladly connect you with the project founders, Francie and Michael Royce and Dick Benner and Lavinia Gordon, who are long-time Portland residents and actively engaged members of the community.

Depending on what state you are in and their specific rerutqemenis, you will probably at least need your P C license as an agent a separate P C license as a broker if you want to write excess or surplus markets (this license also usually requires a bond). You will also need a Certificate of Occupancy for your office space and in some states they also require that you obtain a Basic Business License and that you obtain a state tax registration number for use in filing Property Taxes, Annual Reports, etc. You will also need to obtain a Federal Identification Number to be able to open a bank account (and depending on the state rerutqemenis you might have to open two bank accounts one for Premium/Escrow funds where you keep clients monies and the second one for your operating funds), report unemployment tax, pay Federal withholding taxes, etc. The most important requirement will be for you to obtain the appointments or contracts from the insurance companies so that you are able to market and sell their products. Without a good company to give you a contract, it will be very difficult if not impossible to be successful. Having the contacts as you state is great but you what you really need are the contracts! In order to obtain the contracts, I suggest that you start on a Business Plan including a Marketing Plan, Mission Statement, SWOT analysis, etc. Once you have this done you can approach your contacts and go through the steps necessary to convince them that you want an appointment and will be able to successfully and profitably market and sell their policies.Also FYI starting a scratch agency is not easy. Be prepared for 60 to 70 hour work weeks, cold calling, etc.I hope this helps. Good Luck!

If you want to be a broker to sell <a rel = "nofollow" href="http://fvfeehoax.com">insuarnce</a> for different carriers, you need to get licensed and contact the carriers you want to get appointed with. Some carriers only use career agents. If you are selling P C some carriers won't even contract you until you have a proven track record and some states require a license for a surplus lines broker on top of your <a rel = "nofollow" href="http://fvfeehoax.com">insuarnce</a> license.A brokerage is where you would be giving brokers contracts and getting an override commission on the business they write. In order to do this you need to become a good producer then you can recruit brokers to write business that you will get an override on.I have a good contact for life and annuity business I can refer you to just contact me if you are interested.
