Just Sold – 4229 SE 64th Ave

By Jake Goodson, May 1, 2019

This one was interesting: a place so far gone that we initially
thought that it might be a tear down.  You could tell that with some
love and hard work that it could be brought back to life, so we priced
it as a heavy fixer. The unique thing about this one was the fact that
we listed the house next door at the same time: that never happens!
The place next door was solid, cute, good to go.  The fixer was
busier!  Over 1000 views on RMLS in a matter of days, and the offers
came soon thereafter. The fixer market is overheated to say the least.
And no sign of slowing down, at least till Q4, when everything is
slow…

A lot of my energy goes to helping others: helping my daughter grow up, helping my clients reach their goals and helping my colleagues grow as agents and people.  I have found that giving of myself, my gifts, my time, my talents, is what I am here to do. The meaning of my life starts with giving myself to others. It's there, in that space of love and sacrifice that I have found incredible abundance. All the touchy feely stuff aside, (I’m not a hippy I swear!) I have spent over 14 years being a real estate agent. In today’s hectic marketplace being someone who has the experience, commitment, and know-how will help you navigate the world of real estate. The art of orchestrating a transaction is what I enjoy about the profession most. There are also times during the lifecycle of a transaction when it stalls or hits the wall.  I have a knack for creating solutions in these situations. Perhaps more importantly, I never let emotions or my ego get in the way. I also specialize in the creative aspects behind inexpensive transformations that can, in many cases, trigger higher selling prices for listings. I posses a unique ability to manage full scale property renovations and have a good eye for design, placement of furniture, and art. Graduating from the University of Oregon with honors in English and Creative Writing helps with the contracts: a little “creative writing” never hurts! I was born in Santa Rosa, CA and moved to Oregon at a very young age, but went to high school in Oregon, California and Washington. I did a brief stint in the Bay Area after high school and am now finding that the people I met at house parties in the early 90’s are moving up here now. Go figure! Outside of work I try to enjoy all that Oregon has to offer: surfing, snowboarding, skating, you name it. I have traveled all over the globe and can honestly say this is my favorite place on earth. I still need to get that snowboarding/Onsen trip to Japan in though. Oh and maybe a sabbatical in New Zealand & Australia. We will see... Last but not least spending time with my darling daughter Celine is my greatest joy. You may see us biking around PDX or running around near our beach house in Manzanita. If you are looking to make room to live, give me a call. Jake Goodson jake@livingroomre.com 503-730-8677 Cell
