A New Home for the New Year!

By Olivia Rush, December 23, 2021

Congratulations to my friends and clients, Parmeet and Vinisha! After a relentless search of countless homes, they couldn’t be happier with their brand new home!

I met Parmeet when we were both new to the real estate game. He is licensed across the river in WA, so I was happy to help him purchase a home large enough for his multi-generational family.

Our search took us to every quadrant of the city, and out to Beaverton as well. Parmeet, Vinisha, and his parents had specific layout needs, and the price needed to be just right. We probably toured 60 homes, primarily on the West side, before this NoPo custom construction caught our eye.

Just off Willamette Blvd in Arbor Lodge, this house had everything they were looking for – including a 2-car garage, a flat yard, and a view across the river from the primary suite. Within moments of arriving, we were discussing offer terms and price. The house had only been on the market 5 days. The listing agent said there were a few other interested parties, but after some careful questioning, we were able to determine that neither of those other buyers were serious.

Knowing the Seller wanted a quick sale, we offered a hassle-free, quick transaction and were able to negotiate $60K off the list price! We conducted inspections (ALWAYS do an inspection, even on new construction) and bided our time while we waited for closing. Not a moment too soon – the family moved in 12/22/21 and are hastily decorating for Christmas in the new home!

Here’s to many more holidays celebrated in this beautiful home. Cheers Parmeet and Vinisha!

As your trusted guide through the buying or selling process, you can expect me to customize my services to your specific goals and preferences, much like I did for my students during my ten years as an educator. My clients’ goals vary. A couple retiring to the Big City after 30 years on 22 acres. A woman purchasing her first home independently. A couple upsizing to support a growing family. Two friends pooling their resources to make their first investment possible. A couple navigating a divorce and the sale of their home. A refugee family with limited English setting down roots in this country. Deaf investors looking to maximize profit on their flip.  A couple selling the home of their daughter who has lost her battle to cancer. A family relocating from across the country and buying sight-unseen.  These situations all require unique, dynamic, and holistic approaches. Everyone has different needs, and it is my top priority to meet my clients where they are. For me, real estate is not transactional. It is deeply personal and inevitably life-changing. While each client requires a tailored strategy, my work ethic is unwavering. With me you can always expect organization, tenacity, responsiveness, dedication, and hustle. A gatherer of resources, a communicator of all options and possible outcomes. As your advocate, I will be brutally honest so you know what to expect. A skilled negotiator, I’ll consider every angle with your dreams and goals in mind. My clients often end up feeling like family. I am honored they trust me enough to return to me as their needs change and refer me to their friends, family, and communities. What are your real estate goals and dreams? Call or text me so we can meet to discuss your vision.
