Blog Buyer A Milwaukie Gem

A Milwaukie Gem

By Laura Cavanaugh, September 30, 2019

My clients were on a tight time frame to find the perfect home in Milwaukie. They had recently been relocated from Idaho due to a job change and needed to find a home by October. We spent a few days looking for a home, wrote an offer and were outbid. Due to their time frame, it was either find a house in a week or rent for a while. We watched the inventory closely for a few days and then saw the cutest home. We called the seller’s agent immediately, were the first people to view the house, wrote a strong offer and just like that, our offer was accepted. I am so happy for my clients to have an adorable home to move into and within their time frame. It was also refreshing not to get into a huge bidding war with all the stalling and nail biting. Sometimes it pays to be on the ball and quick to write an offer!

Growing up in a small town in the Willamette Valley, Laura quickly learned the beauty of Oregon.  Whether snowboarding at Timberline or playing on the beach in Gearhart, she knew that the diversity and beauty of the landscape would make her a native Oregonian for life. Moving to Portland over 12 years ago, Laura has called each quadrant of Portland home and loves how each neighborhood has its own unique vibe. A love of architecture and interior design made becoming a real estate agent a no brainer. Her goal in working for Living Room is to help her client’s real estate dreams come to fruition, whether that be a first home, an investment property or selling a home full of memories. She looks forward to the opportunity to make each and every client a client for life. In her spare time, you can find Laura chasing after her two adorable kiddos, Sloane and Holden, perusing Interior Design blogs, shopping for vintage treasures or, as an avid runner, hitting one of the amazing trails this city has to offer.
