Pin Ball Wizard 


Adorable! I’m not just talking about the new owners. You should see the house. The stone path to the front door is like the yellow brick road leading to a wonderful world. Unlike Oz, this world is real. It’s filled with a chef’s kitchen, dinner party sized dining area, vaulted ceiling living room, three bedrooms, two period bathrooms, and a completely remodeled lower level with enough space for a pin ball machine. Andy, a pin ball aficionado, is not sure what machine to purchase. May I suggest the Wizard of Oz by Jersey Jack Pinball, Inc.? Congratulations Laura and Andy! I worked with Dale Schiff on this transaction, so a big shout out to her and all the other parties involved! More

The sweetest trio Bec ,Karen, and their 6 year old niece were wanting to sell their home because their job situation was possibly going to take them out of Portland.  In the event they were leaving town, they wanted to have the sale of their house over with.  Teri and I went to see the house and were very impressed with how nice and maintained it was.  All of the systems had already been updated and there wasn’t anything standing in the way of an easy breezy sale.  We gave them a short list of things they could do to make it show better and they did them immediately.  They also moved out within the week.  We put it on the market on Friday and it was gone by the end of the weekend with multiple offers. Like we thought, it was easy breezy, especially when you have someone in backup position who will take the house as-is for leverage.  Now these girls are free... More


Next time I go to the casino I’m taking Ian and Cozy with me.  These two have some major good luck.  This is their third house they’ve bought from us in the last two years deeming them our best regulars.  Some people invest in 401k’s, some like stocks, and for these two, they like houses.  Ian sharpened his skills on the last fixer they bought and can now take on almost anything.  They are the textbook definition of how you build your wealth with real estate.  They might not see the fruit of their investments until they retire, but they are setting themselves up for some nice golden years. If you already own a house and want to know how to do it, call me.  And if you don’t but this is a dream of yours,  I’ll help you get there. More

Awesome house, bad timing 

311 NE 130th

The day before Char and Nathan were leaving for an epic east coast family vacation, they ran across an amazing mid-century house for sale while perusing listings online. They were almost ready to start shopping and were just looking to get a feel for the market. They expected to hear the final word on their pre-approval the next day. Then, we would start house hunting when they got back from vacation. Great plan! What they didn’t plan for was the amazeballs house they would stumble across that morning. Buying a house during their highly anticipated east coast adventure was not ideal. But, the house was gorgeous, and totally move in ready! They had to look at it. The secret loft playroom sealed the deal. We saw it that day, wrote the offer and got it accepted! All within 24 hours. What a great send off! During their trip, we had to plan ahead for touching base about their loan and the inspections we needed to have done. They were in a different... More


You have heard I am sure, that the 3rd time is a charm?  Well it is in the case of Josh and Lorna!  These guys are troopers – We had some real lows but they still had faith, and we still had fun.  I will miss seeing this adorable family.  We spent a lot of time together and as is the case with cool people, I will miss my friends / clients.  Heartbreak aside, we had fun right guys???  (I hope they invite me to the housewarming and I will need Mike’s number for a bunch of questions I have for him regarding permits etc). Their house has a great floor plan / bones are so good.  Squint and you will see allllllllll the potential;   I would love to help you score a rad 60’s house!  Call meh; Chandra Noble-Ashford cell 503.933.6538 licensed broker in Oregon 2625 SE 26th Avenue Portland, OR 97202 o. 503.719.5588 f. 503.961.8224   More

This house is so cute! 


My client was instantly in love when we walked into this house!  As a matter of fact, so was I!  We had made a few offers on houses that Shannon thought she loved, but her face didn’t light up like it did in this one!  Also our offer was rejected…initially.  I was having drinks at happy hour and thinking “I probably shouldn’t answer the phone”.  But I did, cause I am a work addict, and I was so glad I did as it was the agent for the seller asking if Shannon wanted to move froward still?  First place had backed out!?!?  YES!  It is an older, quirky, cute, bright, fun, house in a great neighborhood.  I am so happy for Shannon.  Please invite me over for a vegan meal in your lovely home!
