"We are excited to welcome Jordan Truitt to First Commercial
Real Estate. Jordan's extensive professional experience and
entrepreneurial successes have provided a strong foundation
for his entrance to the CRE industry.
We are looking forward to Jordan joining the FCRES team and
anticipate he will be adding immediate value to our clients."
Jordan Truitt grew up in Salem in a 4th generation family
business, Truitt Brothers, a processor of local fruits and
vegetables. Jordan attributes his strong work ethic to working in
the agricultural industry from a very young age.
In 2012, Jordan moved with his wife to her home state of
Louisiana. Prior to starting their family, they invested in several
small businesses, discovered a love for real estate, and he fulfilled
a lifelong goal of becoming a commercial charter pilot.
and his family returned to the Northwest where he became the
plant manager of Truitt Family Foods in Salem. His love of Oregon
and community led to the opportunity to serve the Department
of Energy's Facilities and Siting Council. Jordan says "The
experiences that have led me to this point could only have been
learned through hard work, integrity and grit."
In joining FCRES, Jordan expressed his desire to work with,
" ...a dedicated commercial real estate firm whose first priority is
achieving outstanding results for their clients."

New Year's Resolutions
So, your New Year's resolution is to get in
So, your New Year's resolution is to get in
better shape? I hear this a lot. You get a gym
membership and resolve to go five days a
week for one hour. You do great for the first
week, then you have an "emergency" and
can't go for two days. So, you end up taking
the whole week off. Maybe you make it back
once more before you eventually stop going.
So how do you stick to your fitness routine?
Remember every day is a new day. Just
because you didn't make it yesterday doesn't
mean you can't start fresh today. Don't
use that as an excuse to give up. Put some
structure in your life. Go to a class, workout
with a friend, or hire a certified personal
trainer. All of these will give you some
structure and help keep you accountable.
Set small goals and reward yourself for
them. Not with food but with a massage or
a trip to a movie theater. Do something that
makes you feel good but doesn't contain
Don't fall for quick fixes. There is no diet
or pill that will help you reach your goal. Eat
less and move more is solid advice.
Track your progress. There are many apps
available to help you keep track of your
workout and food intake.
Check your attitude. Be good to yourself
and keep a positive outlook.
Think about where you will be next year at
this time and set your goals accordingly. Do
not get discouraged if you don't see results
immediately. You're in this for the long haul
so don't give up!
