KEYS

An iconic piece of commercial real estate, the KEYS building, on NE Killingsworth, is changing hands. The KEYS building was passed to Lisa years ago.  As a child, she played there.  It’s where she learned her trade.  It’s where her family connected.  As their business grew there was a need for a bigger shop.  They pulled up their NE roots and relocated to a historic building in SE. The big KEYS sign stayed on building.  It was never sold. Lisa’s uncles and friends have made it their shop. It’s part of their family. It’s part of the neighborhood.  With that knowledge, Elle had planned to one day rehab it. Her full life didn’t leave her enough time.  Marriage, children, running a business.  All wonderful things that deserved her full attention.  The KEYS building sat vacant.  The neighborhood changed, as neighborhoods do.  Lisa realized she may not have time to get to his project, and decided to sell the property. Lisa may be able to see... More



Omaha Collage

Our seller interviewed multiple agents who told her to put her house on the market “as-is”. Sure, it would have sold as a fixer, our market is hot and the house has location going for it.   Multiple offers at a “fixer” price, easy-peasy.  The kicker is, had the house been thrown on the market as a fixer, it would not be under contract for the price we are at now.   A price, WAY over our asking price.   Take away the money that was put into repairing it, and its still WAY, WAY WAY over what it took to get it there. I told our potential client that if she hired my business partner and I, we would help to transform the home on a TIGHT budget.  Gutsy, maybe, but not really.  We have the crews of inexpensive folks to get the work down.  We set up the workers and babysit the projects to see they get done on time.  The seller liked our plan. ... More


Raze or Revive???

I can only imagine a time when this 1920’s Craftsman style cottage was so lovely – hardwood floors, fireplace, period molding and built-ins, a covered front porch extending the full length of the house, all on a nice big lot in a great SW Portland neighborhood.  The bones of that home are still here, but the years have not been kind . . . remodels gone bad and a lack of basic care has left this cottage in need of much repair . . . or . . . hate to admit . . . possible tear down. There was interest in the home before it even hit the market.  People dropping by, peaking in windows, what would her fate be?  Once listed, we received multiple offers within the first few hours and most were 10% and more over the list price.  One of the best offers also shared plans for a top of the line, grand remodel.  Too irresistible to pass up – Seller... More
