The Award for Patience

The Award for Patience

Being patient is the understanding that you’re continuously growing closer to getting what you want. In real estate, the need for patience comes in various ways. Sometimes, in a cooler market, it’s understanding that your priced-just-right home might sit for awhile before finding the right buyer. In any market buyers enjoy the process more if they understand that their future home may take a while to track down. The prize for patience? The place we land you will be worth the wait.

Years ago my good friends Emily & Zack moved to Portland from California, and thankfully asked me to help them buy! We found them a gorgeous condo at The Cambridge in NW Portland. Since then, as many of my friends and myself have done, they’ve added a new family member. For them, this meant it was time to find more space, a backyard, and a different lifestyle than the condo could provide. We got to work listing their Cambridge condo and on the journey the two decided they wanted to be the first owners of a brand new build.

Principal Broker

Ross Seligman moved to Portland in 1999 after accidentally discovering this oasis of a city in a nationwide desert of strip malls and sprawl. Ross likes to call Portland the "land of opportunity." Why, you ask? Where else can you be a successful real estate broker while simultaneously leading a double life as a musician? That would definitely be a bizarre combination in New Jersey but, in Portland, quite ordinary. In Portland, one expects that their straight-laced accountant is secretly oil painting between Yoga classes. From the moment he arrived in Portland, Ross quickly fell in love with the vibrant energy of the people, gorgeous homes and neighborhoods, and exploding arts scene. Deciding to embrace it all, Ross became an active real estate broker and quickly immersed himself in the city culture. Working with premier Portland boutique company Living Room Realty, Ross is well known for his accessibility, integrity, professionalism, knowledge of the market, and passion for Portland. When he is not busy representing clients or studying market trends, you can find Ross playing music around the city, hiking and camping in the unparalleled beauty of the Pacific NW, and spending as much time with friends and family as possible. Ross Seligman also appeared on Broadway at the Lyceum Theater in NYC as Janis Joplin's guitarist in "A Night With Janis Joplin".
