Blog Buyer Twenty years strong!

Twenty years strong!

By Amanda Haworth, August 16, 2019

I recently helped one of my dearest friends buy a new home and I couldn’t be happier for her. Kristen and I have known each other for 20 years, and she was one of the first people I met after I moved to Portland after graduating at U of O.

Kristen and I have had so many fun adventures together. Bowling nights, skiing trips, birthday celebrations, and oh-so-many late nights watching music-including her own awesome band, The Hazmats. I got to visit her in the hospital right after she had given birth to her beautiful daughter Ramona(who is now a beautiful 14-year old!).

Kristen and her partner, John, have been together for a few years now and have decided to make the ultimate move: Buying a home together. I was thrilled when they came to me, because obviously it would be fun due to our history together, but also because I love getting to help people invest in their future. We found them a real sweetie that was ready to roll.  Also, John is contractor, so there are lots of future upgrades a-comin’ and I’m so excited to see what these two create together!

Here’s to more birthdays/barbecues/camping trips/celebrations/etc!!!

As a native Oregonian who has lived in Portland for over 20 years, I consider myself to be a “Portland Enthusiast.” I love this city and will tell anyone within earshot why if ever asked. I’m also the daughter of a Realtor, which means I’ve been involved in this industry one way or another most of my life. I know the business, I know how to listen, and how to give my clients what they need during these pivotal processes. When you are involved in helping someone buy or sell a home, you move beyond just a working relationship. I see my clients not just as a paycheck, but as a new partner. As an Earth Advantage Certified Broker and ADU Specialist and a Five Star Professional I specialize in:
  • Home Selling
  • First Time Home Buying
  • New Homes and New Construction
  • Condos and Townhomes
  • 2nd Homes and Vacation Homes
