Congratulations to my sellers Jaida and Morgan (and sweet little Emmett) on the sale of their home! These sellers are the epitome of Keep Calm and Carry On ✨

We listed their townhome in mid November – not the hottest time of the year, but they were ready to get the ball rolling on their home search up in Spokane!

After 5 days on market, we had a buyer! This buyer turned out to be quite difficult to work with and ultimately terminated after we extended the inspection period fort them…but we’ll focus on the positive. Going back on market in December was not ideal. It was pretty slow going, but we were confident in our list price and stayed the course.

In January we renewed the listing to get some fresh eyes. Showings were steady and everyone who toured *liked* it – but not enough to write an offer. And then, the magic! About 2 months after originally listing, we received two offers on the same day ABOVE asking with some great terms. Back in action, baby.

Jaida and Morgan were patient, calm, and focused on the big picture. Their grace under pressure was impressive – even through all the setbacks and frustrations, they were a dream to work with. (Doesn’t hurt when you have THE CUTEST baby in the world).

Shout-out to my fellow Roomie Rio Palomares for being one of the best co-op agents I’ve ever worked with, and to Sara Keller at Guild Mortgage for connecting me with these lovely Sellers 💗

Now, it’s just a few more months until Jaida and Morgan’s dream home (currently being built and twice as larger as their townhome) is complete. Emmett is gonna crawl his little heart out all over those 2200 sq ft!

Congrats and cheers to you, Jaida, Morgan, and Emmett 🥂 Best wishes to you on your next chapter!

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.   Curious about the home-buying process in Portland? Click here to sign up for one of my free The How To Buy A House Class™ classes!
