Anyone who reads my blogs (hi mom) knows that I use this as a way to say “thank you” to my clients.  I really have been lucky in my career and Ana and Courtney are no exception.  They were so wonderful to work with, funny, sweet, realistic, and most of all excited.  In other words they were ideal clients and Laura and myself were grateful to work with them – and wish them so much fun and happy times in their lovely new home. Here are the details,1912 Bungalow, great deal with a bit of instant equity, 2/1, huge detached garage, lovely, yard, new kitchen, and a great neighborhood – Madison South. Such a cutie, check it out;   Thank you Ana and Courtney, I loved working with you and thanks for sending folks my way!  =)   More


I recently bought a new house. Specifically a pristine, amazing, adorable, super walk-able, functional, cute granny ranch in lower Hawthorne. This house is a time capsule with a full wet bar downstairs, a great huge kitchen with an eat-in area, a formal dining room, 3 bedrooms, 1.5 baths, cute yard, 2 car garage, and oodles of charm and potential. It is attached to awesome schools, Sunnyside Environmental and Cleveland high School. How we got the house is like this: we have a lot of equity in our current house because we have a 15 year mortgage,have lived her for 5 years, and will use our current home as a rental.  (by the way hit me up if you are interested.)  It is a beautiful 1928 English cottage, with 5 bedrooms and 3 baths, .25 acres, a chicken coop, a tree house, and its attached it the highly rated Hayhurst Elementary  and Wilson High School. We were able to leverage our equity and buy the new... More

I had never really considered baby theft until I met Sarah and Vin. They are the sweetest native Portland couple and their baby Harlowe is well, let’s just say she’s the cutest thing in the ENTIRE world. From the get-go it was fun and it didn’t take long for them to find a house that fit the bill. With an accepted offer and a lot of excitement I was able to coach them through their first home purchase – daunting for even a seasoned buyer. The whole experience was great and I’m happy to say this amazing couple will be moving into their new home later this month. Working with first time home buyers is never stress-free, but having an amazingly cute baby like Harlowe spend time with just made it fun. I’m so excited for you three – this house was meant for your family and Portland is lucky to have kept you! More

I love working with Paul and Kellie, we laugh, we cry, we show houses to Kellie’s parents, we make offers.  We finally got the right offer on the right house and it all came together like kismet.  Big “thanks” to a group of agents who were willing to work together to make sure that everyone walked away feeling like a winner, Paul and Kellie bought and sold their home/s on the same day. Usually I hope that my clients come back to work with me, in this instance I hope that this is the forever house or damn close to it, as I want nothing but happiness for some of my favorite clients/friends.

I am pleased to announce that Maya will get to see more of her husband.  By moving close to his work they now get about an hour and half more a day to spend as a family.  It is a good thing.  Plus their new place is cute, functional, right by parks, the sweet downtown area of Hillsboro, the library and the awesome Shute Park Aquatic Center! CONGRATS WHEELERS, what a sweet, lovely, adorable family to work with!   More

I don’t even have to talk about how cute this house is, or how good the neighborhood and schools attached to it are, if you know you know and the photos speak for themselves. (Just in case you don’t know, Duniway Elementary is so good, and this neighborhood is the bomb.) Also look at how cute my friend Erin and her family are!!!!  I loved working with them.  What a great family.  Thanks you guys!  I hope that your house is wonderful and I cannot wait to see what you do with it.
