Everyone loves a Good Sunset

By Cristen Lincoln, February 26, 2020

Scott and Shari have been working up to their perfect sunset view for sometime. Their journey started when they bought their first fixer house in Manzanita in 2012. Long time Manzanita visitors with their kids and golden retriever, the dream was to have their own house there. They loved it and ended up buying and fixing up several houses over the last few years. After the last sale, they decided to scrap the fixing, and just buy something that was ready to go, and this time it had to have an ocean view. We knew we’d have to wait for the perfect home, and they were patient. That patience along with a clarity of vision were clutch in them being able to snatch up a perfect architectural gem! It has mega amounts of sunlight and a clear ocean view. No need to be on the beach to watch the sun sink into the horizon. It’s one of the best houses I’ve had the honor of connecting a family with. We love connecting people to their dreams! Be it in Manzanita, Portland Proper or up on the Mountain!

Broker in Oregon & Business Development

I’ve been a full time REALTOR® since 1993, and after more than 25 years in the business and thousands of transactions under my belt, I still love it!  At Living Room Realty I facilitate individual agents' business development, am a member of the Broker Advisory Group which provides direction for the company, and lead a Roommates group which allows agents to share ideas for improving their business practices. I feel very fortunate to come to work every day and do what I love. I grew up here in SE Portland, attended our neighborhood schools and live just five minutes from my childhood home. I never even thought about moving away. I love to travel, but Portland is my home. When I’m not working, I enjoy volunteering at my kids’ schools. I’m known for throwing an epic class party! Before I had kids, I never knew I’d also enjoy being a “soccer Mom” as much as I do. When I have a free moment, I love to hop on my bike and ride down to the waterfront from Mt. Tabor where I live. Biking through the neighborhoods is a nice way to stay in touch with the city, and also stay in shape! When I feel like I want more of a challenge, I’ll add the climb up Mt. Tabor. It’s good ride with the reward being the view from the top of the park. Besides Portland, my family’s second home in Central Oregon is my favorite place. We escape there every chance we get, and love to explore the endless hiking trails, lakes, rivers and other natural wonders the high desert has to offer. Snowboarding on Bachelor is at the top of our winter activities list. We just love nature. Our two dogs love it too, and we take them almost everywhere with us! I’m an avid gardener. Meandering through Portland Nursery, even if I don’t buy anything, almost feels like a mini vacation. My Mom taught me a lot about tending a garden, but I also might have gotten my interest in gardening from my ancestors who were among the first settlers of Sauvie Island. My maiden name is Charlton, and a few of us still live and work there. There’s even a road named after my family. The kids think that’s pretty cool. My family has deep roots in Portland. I’m a true Oregon native, local SE girl, Mom and business woman. And, I’m passionate about working in the city and neighborhoods that I love. ADDITIONAL AWARDS & AFFILIATIONS
