Three’s Company!!

By Erika George & Kari McGee, March 10, 2021


You may see one happy new homeowner in this photo, but there are two more to come!  2020 dealt our  lovely clients, Chris and Jamie, and their mother, Shari, some tough blows.  Needing a reset and reconnection with family, they decided to move to Portland from Los Angeles together.  They called us and, almost immediately, we found this darling home in the Overlook neighborhood, which is a perfect fit for the three of them.  In this fast real estate market, the great houses don’t last long, so thankfully, Chris and Jamie were quick learners and took our advice on the various ways they could make their offer most attractive to the sellers.  They ended up beating out 12 other buyers to land the house.  Cut to 30 days later and their swift and decisive efforts paid off.  Shari pulled up with her moving van to collect the keys to their new house.  Chris and Jamie will follow soon and this family will get the fresh start it deserves!!

Congratulations Chris, Jamie and Shari – we know you will enjoy your beautiful new home and Portland life!!
