Perfect Portland 


ap

Alberta Arts (but dead ends so less Last Thursday crazy in your front yard), old Portland Foursquare with original details plus cool staircase up to third floor.  Of course it was a multiple offer fight to the death but the best team won, as we should have.  My clients were meant to live in this house – Portland school teacher, purveyor of Queen Bee products – we could film a  Portlandia episode.  I think they may even juggle. More

Apparently she’s going to enjoy it for a long, long time. More

Some people move to escape roommates, others want to take them with when they move. My buyer wanted a house big enough that her roommates could join her. We found this SE Portland close-in miracle of a house with four bedrooms PLUS finished basement, two and a half baths and a fabulous backyard. It was one of those deals where everything just came together – great seller, great buyers (and lucky roommates). More
