This month we shine the spotlight on our IPG Southern Oregon Regional Managers, Alan and Jo Ellen Yarrish. We are extremely grateful to have them a part of the IPG family!

The management team of Alan and Jo Ellen joined IPG in 2012. They previously owned a restaurant and sauce bottling company but the recession had brought their businesses to a close. They answered an ad looking for a manager for Country Estates in Grants Pass, Oregon. After a year of managing the community, their Regional Manager retired and they decided to throw their hats into the ring for the position. Now, eight and a half years later, Alan and Jo Ellen are regional managers of nine communities across Southern Oregon –  Bear Lake Estates, Butte Crest, Cascade Village, Country Estates, Meadow View Estates, Park View Estates, Gold Hill Estates, Rogue Lea Estates and Table Rock Estates. Alan and Jo Ellen approach everything as a team. Jo Ellen handles the business functions and administration while Alan is “boots on the ground.”

On September 8, 2020, the Yarrish’s experienced a very difficult situation when Bear Lake Estates was burned to the ground by the Almeda Drive Fire. Since day one of the fire, they have been consoling residents – even hugging them on the side of the freeway just outside the community.
