New Series: House Hunter PDX

By Eldridge Huntington, October 10, 2018

New Town, Who Dis?

I know what it’s like to be in a new city, to relearn streets and neighborhoods different from my own. When I arrived in Portland with my wife, we looked for a home, not knowing what we wanted. Finally, we settled on a matchbox house in North Portland. We had so much fun exploring the city and its’ natural treasures in our first year here. Before long, we started a food cart in our local neighborhood and we were living and breathing the Portland dream.

Moving to a new city is as invigorating as it is daunting, and I wonder if we’d known more about Portland before taking that leap, would we have ended up in North Portland? Today, I know we lucked out. And I also know that this common struggle doesn’t always turn out as well for other new Portlanders. I’m reminded of that each time I help people find their new communities.

Introducing: House Hunter PDX

I’ve been contemplating how better to offer support and guidance to this growing community of newcomers and I think I’ve come up with something good. With that being said, I’d like to introduce you to my new web series – ‘House Hunter PDX’! A local perspective on the streets I explore every day with my clients.

What will you find when you watch ‘House Hunter PDX’? Portland from the local perspective – no Portlandia, no travel show gimmicks – these are the corners of Portland that locals know, love and utilize on a daily basis. ‘House Hunter PDX’ illustrates the reasons why Portlander’s choose the neighborhoods they do and what you’ll find there too. A neighborhood-based journey, a community-based journey, produced by a team who loves this city the most. Expect street life, local interviews, hidden gems, old-Portland classics, lots of food, probably some beverages and much more! Who knows, maybe you’ll find the neighborhood for you before you even step onto that iconic PDX airport carpet! Welcome to Portland!

Broker

My name is Eldridge D Huntington III: a name I’m very proud to have even if it doesn’t exactly fit my personality. My family and friends call me JR. It’s a long story, but the short answer to the short name is Dallas. I was born in Fargo, raised in Detroit, lived in Chicago for 11 years, and now I’m truly home in Portland. Real estate was not my first career. I studied film at Columbia College. Although I was more interested in cinematography I found I was better suited as a Producer. Assembling and managing crews, scheduling, accounting and being a part of a project from the idea to the time it hits the screen was extremely fulfilling. After 7 years of producing I began working in the art department creating, designing and bringing sets to life.  I worked on Major motion pictures like Nightmare on Elm street, Public Enemies, Time travelers wife, Wild, Grimm and Librarians. With a background in design and long history of managing multiple high level projects I have found a perfect balance as a Realtor. I love multi-tasking, working with a team to pull off amazing feats and using an analytical approach creatively. I moved to Portland in 2009 with my wife Gina. We currently live in the Portsmouth neighborhood with our two daughters, Estelle and Etta. We purchased our first family home in 2011. We found a little yellow bungalow with a cedar fence and fell deeply in love with it at first sight. We attempt to be gardeners in the summer and rehab addicts during the winter. Most of my spare time is well spent making memories with these wonderful people and working on the house. My favorite things about Portland are the access to natural beauty, outstanding food, the kind and adventurous people and the beer.
