Blog Buyer A Key Day One Year in the Making

A Key Day One Year in the Making

By Beth Benner, March 24, 2023

Congratulations to the Newman family as they settle into their brand-new home in SW Washington! This story was a year in the making but, as they say, good things come to those who wait. Brian & Aim came to the Bridge to Portland Group in early 2022 when they were ready to sell their house in Forest Grove and start building their dream home. With 2 small kids and a rambunctious poodle, space was everything but they’d have to hold on just a while longer to get it. Once the sale was complete, the whole gang moved in with family in Seattle and construction on the new house began. Flash forward several months and their home is finally ready, complete with personally selected finishes. And it couldn’t have come at a better time. Their youngest is suddenly a toddler on the move! This sweet family is back in their own space with plenty of room to roam and we couldn’t be happier to have been part of this journey.
