Dream McMansion in Milwaukie!

By Reg Martocci, February 20, 2019

Christy and RJ were some of my first clients years ago when I started.  I sold them first house in Woodstock just around the corner from Toast.  We stayed friends over the years, they showed up with baby gifts when I had my first kid and also turned me on to the world of Portland Storage Wars.  They became solid regulars at NWIPA and loved being only 6 blocks away.  Christy started getting the itch to move closer to her job in Milwaukie and called me up when she was certain she wanted to move.  She had found her dream home on a 1/4 acre lot at the end of a dead end street.

There’s only the 2 of them so I wasn’t sure why they wanted a 5 bedroom 3 bath house, but they realized they have a tendency to take in wayward strays.  This house is HUGE.  It had been recently gutted and remodeled but I think the selling point was the party basement.  RJ pictured a pool table and Christy pictured enough room to display her mom’s furniture.  Coming from a smaller house where they had roommates for a few years, it felt like they could stretch out and breathe.  This is the home they can grow old in.

Congrats, pals!  I loved being a part of your dream home.  Off to sell the old one.

Originally from Worcester, Massachusetts my love affair with real estate began when I was 19 and owned my first triple-decker. Being a landlady at 19 quickly taught me  the importance of learning DIY skills to turn an old junky three-decker into a place someone would love to call home.  There is nothing more satisfying to me than watching a property transform.  Since then, I have been fascinated by the idea of home and the aesthetics that appeal to people and warm a space up. What is it about a space makes a person feel at home?  Is it an open floor plan? A garden? Hardwood floors or a south facing kitchen?  It is different for everyone and I would love the opportunity to help you find it. I graduated from Umass Amherst with a degree in Sustainable Living and Natural Health and naturally moved to Portland to find my people. Waiting tables and bartending all over Portland for the last 10 years has allowed me to really get to know many of the neighborhoods this beautiful city has to offer.  I've lived in and rented houses all over Alberta, Concordia, Hawthorne and Division until buying a house and settling in Kenton two years ago. If I'm not working you can bet that I'm somewhere in Oregon thrifting, at the river, working on my house, or catching happy hour with friends. Reg Martocci 508-340-1456 t 503-961-8224 f
