Small Small Gay World. 


Jen and Ari came to me through a Facebook blog post I did about selling my best friend a house.  Turns out we have several mutual friends but hadn’t crossed paths til now.  They currently have a really nice house, but with two (really cute) little girls, they needed something off a busy street, with a bigger yard, and an in-law apartment for Jen’s parents who visit often from Florida.  Their search took many twists and turns but ultimately it came down to two houses.  One was a house that sat on Fernhill Park that will forever be filed in my memory as “When I grow up, I want a home like that one on Ainsworth”.  The other is very similar in layout, but the giant master bedroom upstairs has been turned into a really cool apartment.  In addition to that,  the garage is also an apartment. It was a tough call for them to decide between those two houses because while Ainsworth is a... More

  Alex and his sister Kristina (best looking brother/sister combo ever) came to me referred from my buddy Moira in LA (thanks dude!).  Alex was looking for an investment property, something he could easily rent out with little maintenance.  Kristina and I pounded the pavement while Alex was at work and looked at a few doozies.  Then we all went out one Saturday and found this really well kept house in Portsmouth.  It has two bedrooms on the main, and two bedrooms in the newly finished basement.  It’s set up in a way that is basically a duplex because the basement has it’s own entrance.  Not only that, but the garage is half way to an ADU. We struggled with what to offer in a multiple offer situation riding that fine line of not wanting to overpay but not wanting to lose it either.  Alex decided to go all in and presented them with a very generous offer, but also gave them a free month... More

  Heidi and John were seeking more space for their family.  They found a beautiful home with a much larger yard, several blocks East of their current home.  Not wanting to miss out on a great opportunity, they decided to purchase the home without selling their current residence. Once settled into their new home, they contacted me about listing their former residence in SE Portland.  After staging their beautiful American Foursquare property for optimum impact, they accepted an offer and were able to close! If you are considering moving up or downsizing, I would love to assist you in realizing your dream.  You can reach me, Cristen Lincoln, at 503-260-2414. More

SE 33rd-11

My new listing is one we restorationists dream about..  A period-correct, vintage-styled, restoration/remodel! Take one informed owner + one slightly rough but mostly original house  + a lot of hard work and you have a dream home! Lisa and Vic purchased their 1938 English style home when it was quite rough. The original kitchen was darling, but had seen better days. Together with the fine workmen at Arciform, they re-created the original cabinetry including glass pulls from Rejuvenation Hardware and Pratt and Larson tile. Finishing off the vintage look, they used oak flooring, wood-framed modern Tilt-pack windows, and restored a very rare chrome ventilation fan!  Updating the cabinetry dimensions for modern appliances and city code,  the style is reminiscent of 1938 but totally usable today. They did such a fantastic job, the home was featured in the Oregonian’s Home and Gardens, and on the Architecture Heritage Center’s “Kitchen Revival Tour” in 2014. Beyond the kitchen, the sellers have focused on the whole main floor of the home, restoring the... More
