Stacey and Graeme buy a real Stunner!

Congratulations to Stacey, Graeme & Roen!

I am so thrilled to have worked with Graeme and Stacey to purchase this beautiful home. I’ve known Stacey a very long time now. Before she was married and had the cutest son on earth, she was my roommate. That was back when Bernadette and I felt that having a roommate made paying the bills and our mortgage a bit easier.

A lot has changed over the last 10 years although Stacey and I have kept in touch! She met Graeme and they are, hands down, one of the most well-matched and adorable couples out there! I was honored to attend their fantastically gorgeous wedding about 5 years ago. Since then, they have moved to Canada for work and back, had their son Roen and decided to move back to Portland. Yay!!

Stacey and Graeme have some of my favorite character traits- optimism, realism, curiosity and humor. What great traits to work with when shopping for real estate! They were in the market for a comfortable home in a beautiful setting, not too far out in the country and not too close-in to the city, with a master on the main. As first time home buyers who are research-driven, we naturally looked at a lot of houses. And it was a blast! In the end, there was one that they just couldn’t get out of there mind and every home was then being compared to ‘the one’.

We wrote a very competitive offer and were soon in contract! The transaction went smoothly and they are now the proud owners of this gorgeous home! Cheers to Stacey, Graeme and Roen!
