    Congratulations to my clients the Cook family on the purchase of this sweet fixer in North Portland’s University Park neighborhood. We had our hearts broken with another property and started looking again on a sunny day. We pulled up and knew this house was special. The street is lined with old growth trees, the house is surrounded by a huge yard, and  garden beds. We walked up to the font and there was a snail planter full of flowers.  Inside there was 2,273 square feet of potential waiting to be updated. This cute cape cod has 3 bedrooms and 1 bathroom. Lots of natural light, hardwood floors throughout and the house sits on a huge corner lot with the most beautiful trees framing the front yard. The attic runs the length of the house, has one room and a bonus space. the basement high ceilings and is ready to be finished. My clients are going to remodel the house to its full potential, and... More

One Threshold at a Time

Coffee. Keys. Locks. Doors. Emails. Phone Calls. Texts. Inspections. Bids. Deals. Whiskey. Here’s to those days when the keys leave the property with you, and you get to deliver them to your deserving client. All shiny and jingly, they might even be looped through a piece of twine that’s tied in a bow around a really nice bottle of whiskey.

Invest in real estate.  Invest in your future. Dan and Kim are just like many other parents.  They work. They save. They want the best for their children.  Dan’s a Duck, but his son’s a Beaver (can’t win them all).  They also grew up in an era where the American dream was to own a home.  Where to invest in retirement was part of life.  They purchased a home.  They chose to invest in real estate. Over the years I have had the opportunity to help them build their investment portfolio.  Purchasing during the run-up to the recession, taking advantage of the downturn (purchasing at discount), and on into the appreciating market.  They now own everything from single family rentals, to larger multi-family units, and commercial properties. Dan and Kim, congratulations on your newest acquisition.  Will it be called Parkrose Place? Howard Greenfield, Principal Broker at Living Room Realty. More

cannon beach

About a year ago I met Scott, he stopped by the office out of curiosity. At that time he was already in contract on a short sale in Gearhart. Months went by with no closing in sight for Shari and Scott. They ultimately decided to terminate the short sale agreement and start their search closer to their Manzanita home.After searching for a few months, Shari and Scott made an offer on a home in Cannon Beach, Oregon. The location and the surroundings of the home were ideal for an investment property. The home tucked into the quiet and wooded neighborhood of the Haystack Hill State Park. The tall overgrowth trees makes for private setting, while being in the heart of Cannon Beach.Just a block to the beach. A block to cafes and shops. And across the street from hiking trails into the Haystack Hill State Park.   Congrats, Shari & Scott! Tosha Reinmiller | 541.231.5829 | More

manzanita real estate

Dan, Anna & Kane looked high and low for the perfect second home in Manzanita with amazing ocean & mountain views and an open floor plan to create a modern-open coast home. This family has been fortunate to have a small coast cabin in Manzanita for many years but over time they found themselves wanting more space for family and friends. After months of looking they found a home just steps to the beach and with spectacular ocean and Neahkahnie Mountain views. I couldn’t be happier for them! Tosha Reinmiller (541) 231-5829 More

Throughout the city, on both sides of the river, lurk surprising little neighborhood pockets in areas just outside of the arbitrary lines Buyers often draw. These are neighborhoods that are predominantly owner occupied. They attract long time residents and pride of ownership leads to beautiful manicured lawns and tidy well kept homes.  It’s just the picture perfect place anyone would like to call home. Recently, this sweet little listing on SE 104th Court went on the market.  We received multiple offers on this darling house.  The moral of the story is….in this market, it’s time to cross those arbitrary lines.  Your perfect home could be waiting for you there!  And you may not have to fight off quite as many other Buyers to get it! Give me a call if you would like the inside scoop on other sweet pockets around town.   Veronica Powell 503.936.3475     More

Traditional 90s Build

My buyers won the day when savvy sellers did a little updating to garner multiple offers and got a lot of BANG for their creative effort. Jackie and Jeramy are coming to town next month to take up residence in their new Portsmouth area home. Yep… the market is smokin’ hot these days but WoW, what a difference in value a little updating makes! Jeramy starts his residency up on the hill, and Jackie has a demanding job as well… so on a limited budget, with their busy schedules, they needed to find something newer that was move-in ready. And they did. Much of the time, the notion of buying newer… 90′s newer… comes with some trepidation because they can feel “dated” rather than “charming”. The sellers of this very traditional 90′s house, made a few updates that paid off big. They updated the appliances, opened a wall from the kitchen to the living room making the space feel larger, and in the powder bath... 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

Robert and Annie

Annie and Robert were looking for the perfect Old Portland home, preferably in Southeast and even more preferably in their favorite corner of Southeast: Mt. Tabor. They decided to buy a home in Portland after relocating from Ashland, OR and after renting for a couple of years they were ready to buy a house, like yesterday. We saw a lot of cute (some less than cute) bungalows in Southeast and parts of Northeast but nothing felt like a good match and the ones that did were all in bidding wars. Since they had already remodeled one old home they weren’t really excited about going for a fixer and they wanted something a little more move-in ready. It took some time but we found them a great home a couple blocks from where they used to live and on a calm and quiet street on Mt Tabor.    Congratulations Annie and Robert! If you are interested in making a move, give me a call!   Beth... More
