Sherwood, Oregon is a lovely city located a short 15 to 20 minutes from the I-5 corridor and the Roy Rogers Road Expressway. One of our favorite things about selling properties in Sherwood is showing buyers its easy location to many different employers while still being able to live in this charming, small town community.
Even with its steady growth, Sherwood was ranked 5th in the top places to live in the nation in 2013. We believe the reason for this acclaim is the city’s steadfast commitment to maintaining the quality of the community in tact. The community has been a significant force behind keeping and growing community events, Old Town charm, Wetlands preservation, and support for family health and activities.
