Sold! The Newest Milwaukie Master Gardeners Have Landed

By Stephanie Fox, August 2, 2019

When I first sat down to meet Elliot & Jessa we tasted some beers in the SE Living Room office. I stopped at New Seasons and thought I picked some good ones to impress my new, beer brewing and loving clients,  but turns out Elliot was not impressed at all. I totally thought I had it! Thankfully he brought some beer he had brewed on his own and saved the day. It was SO GOOD! At least one of us did something right. They managed to look past my poor beer suggestions and here we are, goals accomplished, happy as ever, house in hand.

I learned about their very impressive garden visions, a bit about their families, what they do for work, and of course their home goals. These two have such hearts, let me tell you. We needed 3+ bedrooms with one on the main plus one bath on the main for the moms to stay in down the line- a very top priority. We needed about a quarter acre so they had room for their garden, chickens, and buns. And yes, we all happened to refer to bunnies (some might say rabbits) as buns. I knew right then it would be a good fit. We needed a good kitchen. We needed a space for brewing. We needed privacy!

Drum roll, please!….. We got it all 🙂 Plus two fireplaces, an already established multi unit chicken village, a plumb tree, a nice covered area to enjoy the outdoors year round, some great neighbors, and a big, welcoming front porch. Sometimes the stars align.

Jessa is ready to paint, paint, paint, and I seriously can’t wait to see what they do with the yard. Now I just need to convince them to share the plumbs with me until I get my own tree. And the beer, but forever.

Happiest realtor of 2019. Position remains.

I've lived in and loved Oregon all my life. An early obsession with houses and all that happens inside them, plus a sincere interest in human connections is what led me to the real estate world. Having degrees in leadership and management and human resources, I have found a real pleasure in connecting that special, sappy community feel to real estate. Buying and selling homes is a huge deal and I want my clients to feel supported throughout the process. A few promises if we get to work together: education | communication | guidance | commitment | community. You will not be left in the dark- ever. *Wanting to sell a home?* I will help guide you through the prepping and the primping. Offering fresh marketing and a thorough approach to get you the best sale possible. *Wanting to buy a home?* I will keep you up to speed by walking carefully through repair options and negotiation strategies. I will connect you with the necessary service people like roofers, HVAC technicians, and even interior designers. Years after the sale has closed? That same service still applies. I really love this business. I love working with wonderful humans to accomplish such a significant goal. I love looking at and getting to constantly learn new things about homes and the stories they hold. I love a good, win-win negotiation where everyone gets to walk away happy. And since we're talking bio, it seems worth noting that when I'm not selling houses, you'll catch me hanging with my beloved and very dorky dachshund, wrangling my two crazy cats, hiking the Gorge and exploring the outdoors, appreciating our environment, and enjoying my people. Visiting from out of town? Ask me for some recommendations! Want to get together or know someone who could use my services? Give me a call or shoot me a text: 503-999-2457 or email
