Ryan and Melanie had quite a task at hand when they set out on their house hunt. As first time home buyers the list was long and required the need for a multi-family set up. They wanted space for their two sons to roam and a lawn that needed a riding mower, and a place for a snow-bird grandma. After a day spent in Newburg and one possible contender, we set out to Milwaukie. I have a soft spot for the city. It’s where I bought my first house. The home I brought both my babies home from the hospital too. Basically I love Milwaukie, and I thought it would be a great fit for them. The lots are bigger, it has an up and coming downtown, and the new orange line makes it super accessible to Portland. After a day of seeing all the houses on their list in Milwaukie, we walked into the keeper. A huge yard with VIEWS, tons of space, and even potential for a pottery studio. Welcome to Milwaukie guys, I think you will find you love it too!
