Blog Buyer A Bit of Parkrose Heaven

A Bit of Parkrose Heaven

By Tracey Henkels, December 4, 2019

Congratulations Veronica & James!

First of all, hooray for great referrals!! Veronica and James were referred to me through past clients and I’m so thankful I met these bright and fun folks. We had so much fun checking out properties together! They knew what they wanted, got pre-approved with our preferred lender and bada-bing! they were in contract on this darling ranch.

Second of all, let’s hear it for Parkrose! So many cute ranches in this cozy area! Parkrose is perfectly located near Hwy 84 & Hwy 205, so commuting isn’t crazy (which they needed).  Plus, this area tends to be with-in reach financially for more people. A total win-win!!

I love helping first time home buyers make their dreams come true! Yaay for Veronica and James!

Earth Advantage Principal Broker

Tracey Henkels attributes her disciplined nature and relentless work ethic and to a childhood spent rising and retiring by the light of the sun, on her family’s apple orchard in Iowa. Gratefully, that Midwestern mentality has served her well over the years, and Tracey continues to deliver excellent customer service, superior technical skill, and a wide array of industry knowledge both directly and on behalf of her clients. While Tracey wouldn’t trade her career as a Real Estate broker for any other, her first love was actually Architecture, a craft she studied at Iowa State University during her undergraduate years. After receiving her degree, Tracey worked as an Architect for over 6 years before deciding she wanted to forge a new professional path. In 2004, Tracey jumped heart-first into the world of buying and selling houses, and is proud to say, she’s never looked back.   When you meet Tracey, one of the first things you notice is her positive energy, and zest for life. One of her favorite things about being a broker is the ability to help people make powerful transitions in their lives. Tracey’s natural patience, unwavering professionalism, and optimistic attitude make her a both a compassionate broker, and tough negotiator. Tracey is committed to serving others, being involved in her community, and giving back. When she isn’t working hard to best serve her clients, you might find her tending to her garden, growing fresh vegetables, exotic plants, and beautiful flowers, apprenticing a professional woodworker making fine furniture, or planning her next exciting adventure with her wife, Bernadette.
