Lovely Lobster Marathon

By Jason & Kristin Anderson, August 20, 2019

For some, lobsters are just the delicious morsels that melt in your mouth. For Shawn & Claire, they are a proud trade mark that represent their love and partnership. It all started with Shawn’s Mom who kept buying him clothes with lobster print on them for every special occasion. Shawn & Claire kept the tradition going, and we have never seen so many lobster printed clothes since we have had the honor of working side by side with them through their home marathon.

We started off the process brainstorming the best plan for them regarding their home search. Shawn and Claire both had houses of their own, but they decided to take the big leap in their relationship and merge their lives into one. Soon the realization was that Shawn needed to sell his home first in order for Claire and him to find their dream home together.   After the prep work was completed and Shawn’s home was on the market we had multiple offers within a few days, and it was off the market nearly 5% over list price before Shawn’s big trip to Argentina.

After the sale of Shawn’s home was completed, the time was here to officially start the home search process. A few homes came up here and there but none of them were quite right. Months went by without a prospective home in sight, until one day we got a call from Shawn and Claire to say that the perfect house came on the market with exactly the qualities they both agreed upon as well as an ideal location. What made it even more perfect was that it was on a street called Lovely.

Through their hope and perseverance, they were able to get the keys to their dream home, and merge their day to day lives into one at last.

Shine on Lobster Lovers! We are so happy for you both and are so excited for all the adventures to come.

Jason: I am a rugged Jamaican/Oregonian who loves nature and the city. My family immigrated to the US when I was 13 and ever since then Oregon has become my home as well as my adventure playground. When I am not fighting hard for my clients as their guide in this ever evolving Real Estate Market, I am an avid surfer and snowboarder. All year round I have been blessed to find some of Oregon's best set ups for waves. There's nothing quite like Oregon's sandy coastline that brings in a wide range of waves. During deep of winter, you can find me taking breaks from laps at Timberline lodge with a good IPA in hand. For those powder days I make sure to head to Meadows or Skibowl with my snorkel so I stay afloat. Aside from my love of high adrenaline sports, I have a deep passion for interior & exterior plantscaping/gardening. Along with gardening I love learning about bees and their pivotal role in the world. I received my Master bee Keeping Apprentice and have been fascinated with them ever since. I love sharing life with out clients and showcasing Oregon's gorgeous neighborhoods, landscape, its abundant activities and never ending delicious eateries. Kristin & I work hard to help our clients have an amazing journey in the sale/purchase of their home. This is a huge decision for our clients and we don't take our role lightly. Our goal is to be your realtor for life and bring a smile to your face at the end of each and every transaction. Kristin: I was born in Jamaica, grew up in the Philippines & raised by American parents who now live in Chaing Rai, Thailand. About 6 years ago, I was in Thailand visiting family and was trying to figure out what was the next adventure I wanted to go on. I pulled up my laptop and typed in Google: “Where to live in America that is near the ocean, mountains, and has great public transportation.” Portland, OR kept popping up. So, I bought myself a one way ticket and haven’t regretted it since. I have been a nomad for most of my life, living in 7 countries and traveling through 25. Portland has continued to keep me planted due to its magnetic force that brings people from all over the country & the world together; great food, creative cocktails, & beautiful landscape. Some cities have a way of making you feel swallowed up, Portland has a magical way of making you feel at home from the minute you arrive. Once I found my bearings in Portland, I quickly fell in love with Real Estate. As a kid, we all had a theme of Christmas ornaments, mine were always mini houses. I’ve always had an appreciation for the architectural design of homes, and the meaning of what “home” can mean to each person. My home was wherever my family was growing up, and there’s something pretty amazing about seeing a permanent space reflect the meaning of “home.”
