Our Goal is Clients for Life!

By Tracey Henkels, October 18, 2019


I met Meghan around 15 years ago (but who’s counting!) Meghan helped me launch my real estate career and we became fast friends. Talk about a sharp cookie – she is one of the warmest, energetic, smart and fun people I know! Fast-forward through the years: she met her now-husband, Justin (he’s equally awesome) and they have 2 beautiful children, Amelia and Tristan!

This is the second time we have worked together. I helped them buy their family starter home in Beaverton several years ago. Happily, this year they were ready to upgrade to their dream home!

The Fitzgerald’s found a gorgeous country home in North Plains with plenty of acreage, gorgeous views, room for ATV trails, a horse pasture and a tractor (which they are excited to learn how to use!). They are thrilled their kids will grow up surrounded by nature and have acres to explore. They couldn’t be happier!

And… the sweet-as-pie ending to this story is the house has a father-in-law suite for Justin’s Dad. We love helping multi-generational families find homes they can live comfortably together in. The benefit to everyone is exponential!

Congratulations to the whole family!

Tracey Henkels attributes her disciplined nature and relentless work ethic and to a childhood spent rising and retiring by the light of the sun, on her family’s apple orchard in Iowa. Gratefully, that Midwestern mentality has served her well over the years, and Tracey continues to deliver excellent customer service, superior technical skill, and a wide array of industry knowledge both directly and on behalf of her clients. While Tracey wouldn’t trade her career as a Real Estate broker for any other, her first love was actually Architecture, a craft she studied at Iowa State University during her undergraduate years. After receiving her degree, Tracey worked as an Architect for over 6 years before deciding she wanted to forge a new professional path. In 2004, Tracey jumped heart-first into the world of buying and selling houses, and is proud to say, she’s never looked back.   When you meet Tracey, one of the first things you notice is her positive energy, and zest for life.
