Can you help us/me buy a house now?” It’s definitely a reflection of the sad state of the... More

Home buyers in North Portland by Lauren Dahl

A few months ago while hosting an open house in Portsmouth, I had the pleasure of meeting Sean and Audrey. They were recently married and looking for their first home in North Portland. And they were lovely. (I secretly hoped that our Southeast connection (they’re from Georgia; I’m from Alabama) would entice them to ask me... More

Investment Property

What a great time to sell an investment property! Mark and Cindy just sold their SW Portland, Maplewood rental property and choose an above list price, all cash offer (they received 4 offers total).  The all cash offer meant no nail biting appraisal contingency with which to contend,  and Mark and Cindy were able to negotiate all repair issues... More

And, Shockingly, Sometimes People Move Away from Portland

Our clients came to us with a crazy revelation…they were moving away from the most moved to city in America. With new jobs and the urge to belong to a new city, they needed help selling their townhome in the Irvington neighborhood.

Just Sold at the Hamilton Arms 


Kiron is a Manhattan transplant, who relocated to Portland when offered a job at Nike. Like many Millennials Portland’s quality of life and culture drew her to our city and away from the concrete jungle of NYC. Currently renting at the Indigo she was excited to find a place to call home and settle down. Kiron was drawn... More

I bought this house that was foreclosed on for $130,000... More

Anna and Ezra’s search for a home was a bumpy one. What began as casual browsing, in case the right home came along, quickly turned into a race against the calendar. Just one month into working with Anna and Ezra, they found themselves faced with a 90-day no-cause eviction. As if home hunting in this... More

Finding Closing… 


John and Arabeth just sold their lovely, craftsman home of 13 years, on NE Lombard St.  It was a summer blockbuster, blind truck driving, traffic stopping, dangerous underground pipes, obstacles at every turn, dig down deep and really get to know yourself, darkest before the dawn kind of deal.   Luckily, we unearthed a “sock liner” sewer repair job... More
