Southern Oregon Market Stats
Jan. 1, 2020- March 31, 2020
By Jake Rockwell
Homes in Jackson County are selling quicker and for more money then they were this time last year. Of course, these numbers only reflect until the end of March which saw the biggest National impact from the COVID-19 virus. One thing to consider is that although we haven't yet seen the housing stats for April, which may reflect the true impact more, it is evident that at least thru the end of March the housing market remained STRONG. This is also true for the South East and West sides of Grants Pass in Josephine County as well.

Medford, OR- April 17th, 2020
Rockwell Group is continuing to provide strength during the COVID-19 outbreak and an economic shutdown. Having previously dedicated $5000 in restaurant gift certificates and held an Easter coloring contest for prizes, Rockwell Group is now partnering with Sign Dude of Medford to create inspirational signage for anyone that requests one. Carrying a message of solidarity and perseverance with the slogan “We’ve Got This” Rockwell Group is hoping that Medford residents show up and show their signs!
They will be taking requests from anyone that would like a sign to display in their yards or business windows, and signs will be either made available or hand delivered (6ft apart of course) for those that want to participate. These signs are at no cost to those requesting them and are encouraged to be displayed, while photo’d and posted on social media with the hashtag #strongertogether, to create a sincere unity amongst the Rogue Valley Community.
Rockwell Group and Sign Dude are confident in this community and it’s resilience, and are striving to create programs that reaffirm these feelings throughout Southern Oregon and continue to make this community stronger than ever. Believing that sometimes it just takes a few words of encouragement to bring us all together!
If you or anyone would like a sign to be displayed in your yard or business please contact Rockwell Group for drop off arrangements via form or social media or text below.

Rockwell Group | eXp Realty Hosts Easter Coloring Contest
Helping find creative ways to stay busy for Easters Holiday while kids are at home.
While families are all seemingly going stir crazy and parents alike are desperately trying to find things to occupy their kids' time while keeping them safe, the Rockwell Group has thought of some clever ways to stay safe, stay healthy and stay happy. With the upcoming Easter holiday quickly approaching children will most likely not be able to do the regular Easter egg hunts as usual, celebrating with family and friends and often in large community groups.
In lieu of this, Rockwell Group | eXp Realty is holding an Easter Coloring Contest! We are asking the community to use the templates provided on the website, the Rockwell Group social media and through email to color their hearts out! They ask that participants get as creative as possible since this won't just be for the sake of coloring but the Rockwell Group will be giving out prizes for best contest submission.
How it works: Participants will download and print the same template provided. Once participants have colored/decorated their templates they will need to simply hang it in their windows for all the neighborhood to see. Then take a picture of their masterpiece displayed in their windows and post the image to the Rockwell Group facebook page.
Picking the winner… winners will be judged on creativity paired with whomever's creation receives the most “Likes” with PRIZES AWARDED!
1st Place - $100

Winners will be announced on Easter at 5pm on the Rockwell Facebook page and will be direct messaged to claim their prize!
