My Clients Rock! (Literally)

By Gabrielle Enfield, August 5, 2019

Hi and happy Summer! Here’s a story about my recent sale in SW Portland, where I helped my clients prep and sell their home they’d been in for 24 years. Its location is incredible, a daylight ranch that’s five minutes to Nike and it sits on an oversized lot – complete with chicken coops! Mike and Terri are total “do-ers” – they go into everything with gusto and have a zest for life. I’ve known Terri for years – we used to work together – and when she reached out to tell me it was time, I was super excited for them.

The reason? They had bought an opal mine in Nevada and were ready for their next adventure. Awesome.

We had some work to do to dial up their house and get it ready for the market. Mike and Terri embraced our recommendations for updating the paint palette, swapping out light fixtures, and freshening up the landscaping. Take a look at the before (bear in mind, taken with my iPhone, not professionally shot):









And here is after:








They were able to get their house under contract for the price they hoped to get, and turns out the new owners are equally terrific and it sounds like they are going to love the home as much as Mike and Terri did. I love it when it works out that way.

Mike and Terri also hit it off with my kiddo Tycho, who happens to also love geology. When Tycho heard about the opal that was made when an asteroid struck a tree and turned it into a gemstone, he was hooked.

Have you been in your home but are itching to make a change? Don’t know where to start when it comes to paring back all. That. Stuff. ? Please consider giving me a call. I have a keen eye for what it takes to get a home shining its best and how some simple changes can have big impact. Plus, I’ll bust my buns to help get it done for you. #callgab

Till then, high fives!

After spending 20 years in marketing and communications – ranging from anchoring the local TV news to leading teams for some of the world’s beloved brands, including Xbox and Dave’s Killer Bread – I finally listened to the universe’s prompts to become a real estate broker. Since, I've consistently delivered results and happiness and according to my clients, a 5-star experience along the way. Working in real estate in one of the nation's hottest markets, I understand the important decision of choosing an agent. My goal is to apply my myriad experiences, both personally and professionally, to help guide my clients through a thoughtful, strategic, seamless and fun journey. Need staging help? I can do that. Looking to purchase a vacation property and need it to generate rental income? Roger. Are you a first-time buyer who needs a steady hand to help guide you through the real estate process? I've got you covered. Moving to PDX and need a proxy to get to know Rose City? Let's do this. I'm a PacNW native and proud resident of North Portland, where I'm raising my family. I was practically born with a tool belt on: my Dad is a retired custom designer and builder, my uncle is an architect and my Grandpa was a Realtor and developer. I am an active listener, have a keen eye for "good bones",  and solving my client's real estate needs in a creative and often unexpected way brings me joy. Plus, the lasting relationships formed are cherries on the sundae! Please give me a call - I'd love to see what it would be like to partner with you.
