It’s all about the VIEW!

By Erika George & Kari McGee, September 21, 2020

Last summer, our client, Rick, decided to leave the city behind in search for more land and beautiful views!  Within weeks he found the perfect Corbett home, with stunning views of the Columbia Gorge.

Of course, there was a slight catch — he had to sell his house first.  We weren’t sure the sellers were going to accept his contingent offer given that they had other non-contingent offers in hand.  However, good communication and flexibility won the day and the sellers accepted his offer.  Luckily, his darling Rose City Park house sold in a flash, and, last week, during the most heinous smoky air conditions the greater Portland area has ever experienced, he closed on the Corbett house.

Normally, handing clients the keys to their new house is the best part of our day.  Well, in this case, it was still exciting but there was a little “Wah Wah” about it, as this is the view to which we were greeted.

Luckily, Rick’s spirits were not dampened, and he reported last weekend that, once the smoke cleared, he was treated to the most wonderful view sipping his coffee on Sunday morning.

Congratulations Rick for taking action to make your Corbett dreams come true!  We know you are going love you new home and will undoubtably enjoy many more cups of coffee enjoying the natural beauty of the Columbia Gorge!
