Patience Pays Off!

I was so lucky to get to work with this family – just back to Portland from the Midwest after completing Residency – these high school sweethearts originally from Oregon brought a few more kiddos back with them! I really enjoyed my time with them.

This past Spring, we started talking strategy just before their big move back to the West Coast this Summer.  When they arrived, we hit the ground running, and we saw plenty of options from which to choose, but nothing good enough to jump on yet.  In the meantime, they found a month-to-month rental in the community they identified as the best place for commute and family, and we waited patiently….  and eventually the right home came along!  By waiting just a little bit longer and not buying the first weekend they came into town, I feel like we were able to check off all the boxes that they were looking for in a home:

  • Great Location
  • Top Schools
  • the Perfect Square Footage
  • an Awesome 1/2 acre Lot
  • at an Ideal Price
  • Bonus: a Basketball hoop in the backyard!

Congratulations, Jeff & Yvette! I wish you many, many happy years in your new home!
