Blog Buyer From the City to the Forest

From the City to the Forest

By Laura Cavanaugh, March 6, 2019

Two years ago my clients purchased an adorable home in the Richmond neighborhood. It honestly was love at first sight. They painted walls, remodeled the bathroom, updated lighting and did so much more to the house. They had an amazing top level “suite” of a master bedroom with french doors that go out to a deck overlooking their lovely backyard. Doesn’t it sound like a dream? And then something happened…they had the cutest little baby boy. They’ve lived in this sweet house with their equally sweet boy for nearly two years, but felt the urge to have a bit more privacy, a bigger yard and some TREES. Their new house provides them all that and more. This tudor style home on nearly a half acre lot with green space behind them is going to be the perfect place for their family to grow and make new memories. I couldn’t be more happy for them!

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.
