Home Sweet Home…Finally!

By Danielle Deschenes, July 25, 2021

Would you believe me if I told you that Chad and Susan had been looking for a home for over a year? It’s true. We estimate that in this time we saw close to 100 homes! This one was their 12th offer, so we crossed our fingers and held our breath. We were competing, again, but we put together a strong offer. Then the day came and I got the call that they were accepting our offer, and I may have accidentally screamed into the phone when I talked to the list agent!


Now, more than 365 days after Chad & Susan started this journey, I get to hand them keys to their new home and I couldn’t be more thrilled for them!

I can't wait to help you navigate the Portland Real Estate Market. Whether you are a first time home buyer, a seasoned investor or somewhere in-between, you can count on me to help you through the process of buying or selling your home! As a 100% Pacific Northwesterner, I love all that this city has to offer (rain and all). Originally from Bothell, Washington I spent most of my life in Retail Management. I started my work career as most do as a courtesy clerk, little did I know I would stick with it well after college. I studied Psychology and Sociology at the University of Washington with an emphasis in Criminology. To this day, I still find myself watching shows that have to do with true and fictional crime. In 2013, my boyfriend and I moved to Salt Lake City, UT with 2 dogs and 2 cats. No easy feat for anyone. There I spent a year working for eBay as a Customer Solutions Agent. My hats off go to those of you that do that work, it is not easy! After 2 years in beautiful Utah, we decided that Portland was the place to be. After coming to visit to look for housing, we knew that we had made the right decision. We fell in love with all this city has to offer. I knew that the great PNW was where I belong, I was home! Over the years I have bought and sold property in Seattle, and we own our home here in SE Portland. I have always loved to look at homes on the internet and would stop by open houses when I drive by them. Hmmm, what better career blends a love for homes and a natural affinity for customer service into one? Here is where my Real Estate venture begins. I want to help you love Portland! What better way than to own your own home? I'm always available to take the very best care of you and anyone you refer to me. Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions. Let's go grab a coffee or a beer and we can talk about your plans for home ownership in this beautiful city!
