Hazelwood Mid-Century Gem

By Jon Lawson, September 25, 2020

 

In January, Sam and Nick moved to Portland from Minneapolis for work in pursuit of a neighborhood that reminded them of their former NE Minneapolis neighborhood. Being from Minneapolis myself, I was especially excited to show them around town.

We toured close to 20 homes from St. Johns to Milwaukie. They settled on an impeccable Mid-Century ranch located in the Hazelwood area of Northeast Portland. This wasn’t on our initial list of neighborhoods, but when they saw this particular house and neighborhood – they knew it was the perfect fit for them!

Finding the right home with all of the amenities they were looking for, which included: Mid-Century aesthetic, bike storage, closeness to Portland, yet also being close to areas that they could go mountain biking was so important to them.

Upon submitting our offer, we found ourselves in a multiple offer situation. But after many conversations with the Listing Agent, Scott Shoji of Living Room Realty, we submitted a creative offer that we felt really spoke to his sellers. Then we waited.

Two excruciatingly long days later we received a call from Scott. Sam and Nick’s offer was chosen! I believe that great communication on all sides, assurance of working with a trustworthy lender, the ability to meet the seller’s needs and creative solutions helped them win.

Working with Sam and Nick to find their first home was an absolute pleasure and I am so thrilled to see them in this beautiful home. It is truly perfect for them.
