I am thrilled to start out the new year by helping Tessa and Hayley purchase their first home. After wrapping up their doctorate work and related training they decided to make Portland their home. Tessa is a professor at PSU and I was honored when one of her colleagues, a past client of mine, referred them my way.
Tessa and Hayley shared with me their desire for privacy, and ideally a home that was perched among the trees. Portland has a handful of pockets that feature these types of homes, however they are by no means common.
As luck would have it, we struck gold early when we discovered “Ormandy” in the first weeks of our search. After touring this contemporary southwest home for a second time, Hayley and Tessa were certain this was the place for them. It had some projects they were game to tackle, while giving them the bones and space to turn the key and settle in comfortably right away.
I am grateful for their trust and confidence and feel lucky that my path has crossed theirs. I can’t wait to see them put their own touches on this great home!
