Blog Buyer As Sweet as Ice Cream

As Sweet as Ice Cream

By Jason & Kristin Anderson, August 21, 2019

One of our favorite memories of Jae’s home sweet home purchase was how it all began. We got a message from Jae saying the house that he had fallen in love with was on the market. We called the agent and found out that there were already offers on the home and that the seller had to make their decision that day. We knew things were moving fast but if Jae wanted this home we had to boogie. So boogie we did!

Jae & Issac met Kristin at the house and quickly realized that this was the one. Kristin asked if they had time to write the offer then but wanted to do it in style so they all went down to Sugar Pine Drive In which was close by, one of her favorite stops.  At an outdoor picnic area by the sandy river eating delicious food we went to work crafting their offer while Jason gathered the dug into the comparable properties and gathered more info on the home and seller to make sure our offer was number 1.

By the time lunch and ice cream was finished up the offer had been submitted and we told them that we would be in touch as soon as we heard back. Which was sooner than expected. By the end of the day we were celebrating together again.

Jae we are so excited for you and hope this dream home is as sweet as the ice cream we ate the day  you got into contract! Congratulations our friend.

Jason & I are a dedicated husband and wife real estate team with a diverse upbringing & an appreciation for local & international backgrounds. What Jason & I love most about Real Estate is making those deep connections with our clients by listening to their goals and serving as their guides through their home sale/purchase journey. We stand by our 3 principles to keep things:
  1. Simple
  2. Stress Free
  3. You Get the Best Deal in the Least Amount of Time
Jason: I am a rugged Jamaican/Oregonian who loves nature and the city. My family immigrated to the US when I was 13 and ever since then Oregon has become my home as well as my adventure playground. When I am not fighting hard for my clients as their guide in this ever evolving Real Estate Market, I am an avid surfer and snowboarder. All year round I have been blessed to find some of Oregon's best set ups for waves. There's nothing quite like Oregon's sandy coastline that brings in a wide range of waves. During deep of winter, you can find me taking breaks from laps at Timberline lodge with a good IPA in hand. For those powder days I make sure to head to Meadows or Skibowl with my snorkel so I stay afloat. Aside from my love of high adrenaline sports, I have a deep passion for interior & exterior plantscaping/gardening. Along with gardening I love learning about bees and their pivotal role in the world. I received my Master bee Keeping Apprentice and have been fascinated with them ever since. I love sharing life with out clients and showcasing Oregon's gorgeous neighborhoods, landscape, its abundant activities and never ending delicious eateries. Kristin & I work hard to help our clients have an amazing journey in the sale/purchase of their home. This is a huge decision for our clients and we don't take our role lightly. Our goal is to be your realtor for life and bring a smile to your face at the end of each and every transaction. Kristin: I was born in Jamaica, grew up in the Philippines & raised by American parents who now live in Chaing Rai, Thailand. About 6 years ago, I was in Thailand visiting family and was trying to figure out what was the next adventure I wanted to go on. I pulled up my laptop and typed in Google: “Where to live in America that is near the ocean, mountains, and has great public transportation.” Portland, OR kept popping up. So, I bought myself a one way ticket and haven’t regretted it since. I have been a nomad for most of my life, living in 7 countries and traveling through 25. Portland has continued to keep me planted due to its magnetic force that brings people from all over the country & the world together; great food, creative cocktails, & beautiful landscape. Some cities have a way of making you feel swallowed up, Portland has a magical way of making you feel at home from the minute you arrive. Once I found my bearings in Portland, I quickly fell in love with Real Estate. As a kid, we all had a theme of Christmas ornaments, mine were always mini houses. I’ve always had an appreciation for the architectural design of homes, and the meaning of what “home” can mean to each person. My home was wherever my family was growing up, and there’s something pretty amazing about seeing a permanent space reflect the meaning of “home.”
