boil-egg-800X800

I imagine you need an egg and a water, but I’m not really interested in any further steps (luckily, I date men that can cook.) But man, can I prep, stage and sell a house. Little St. Johns cutie – listed for $269,000  SOLD for $310,000. Tracy Dau  –   Old House Specialist    971.275.0387 More



SW 8th

Chris and I often talk buyers out of purchasing homes for various reasons.   We pride ourselves on not pushing clients into making bad purchases. This time was different.  It may go down as one of our best deals of the year. Standing outside the home before it ever went on the market.  “If you... More

First time buyers, Marika and Dave, came to us with a decent budget wanting to be close in North Portland.  After a week of looking at houses that either needed tons of work or didn’t meet much of their criteria, I persuaded them to look east of 82nd.  It’s funny, whenever I suggest that almost... More

Sherri and I met when I was helping some friends buy a flip in St. Johns a couple of years ago.  She was the seller and most times I don’t meet the actual client on the other side,  I just work directly agent to agent.  But on this deal, her agent went MIA and Sherri... More



Front Exterior

Have a house in SE or NE that you are thinking of selling?  Give me a ring.  We are the whiz-bang duo of staging and prepping a house for sale.  I held this house open both Sat/Sun and had over 250 people view it! Let’s get it done and watch the offers roll in. More

Paint-a-rainbow-9

Real estate deals are not all happy faces and roses.  They don’t all end with giant smiles of families on the front porch with a rainbow arching overhead.  Sometimes, deals are tough.  They are tough because multiple parties are involved with different personalities.   During a recent transaction where I found myself biting my tongue,... More



68th

I didn’t think it was possible but an awesome veteran and a rock-star lender got this first time home buyer into a sweet little fixer with NO MONEY DOWN! Chris has a good eye for design and plenty of muscle for putting sweat-equity into it, but he was short on cash. This house had good... More



2004 NE 51st photo.aspx

Congratulations to our client, Rick, and his daughter, Allyson, for landing this cute home in the Hollywood neighborhood.  Although not as “polished” as some of the remodeled houses we looked at in the same price-range, the house is in good condition, has a great floor plan, and is in a superb location — close to... More
