Preschool pals

By Amanda Haworth, February 11, 2019

One of my favorite things about having grown up in Oregon is getting to help out my childhood friends buy homes of their own. And with the ease of social media, it’s easy to stay in touch even over the many passing years. Sarah and I became friends at age 3 in pre-school. We went through elementary, junior, and high school together. We lost touch after high school, but we were able to reconnect on Facebook and rekindle our life long friendship.

Just like when we were kids, we found we still have a lot on common. We both have two kids(she’s got boys, I’ve got girls) and we are both badass ladies in careers we love. She is a recruiter in the tech industry, and we all know that we could use more women in tech. Sarah is making a difference and loving it!

Sarah and her husband Jason came to me because they were looking for an investment property. Looking for an investment property is different than looking for a full-time personal home, as there are a lot more factors to consider over time. I have a lot of experience, not only in helping out buyers looking for their own nest egg, but in running investment properties of my own. It’s a big responsibility and one Sarah and Jason took seriously. We found the perfect property in SE, where they also have their family home. I am so excited to see them continue to be good stewards for their community.

As a native Oregonian who has lived in Portland for over 20 years, I consider myself to be a “Portland Enthusiast.” I love this city and will tell anyone within earshot why if ever asked. I’m also the daughter of a Realtor, which means I’ve been involved in this industry one way or another most of my life. I know the business, I know how to listen, and how to give my clients what they need during these pivotal processes. When you are involved in helping someone buy or sell a home, you move beyond just a working relationship. I see my clients not just as a paycheck, but as a new partner. As an Earth Advantage Certified Broker and ADU Specialist and a Five Star Professional I specialize in:
  • Home Selling
  • First Time Home Buying
  • New Homes and New Construction
