Retro Rambling Ranch – Sold!

By Emma Kemp, December 30, 2022

This midcentury time capsule ranch had been in our sellers’ family for two generations and almost sixty years! Filled with exquisite original features and charming details throughout, it’s the kind of gem you have to see to believe. A swimming pool, a sunken living room, a lower level with a huge family room and more – this one got snatched up quickly with a great offer from buyers who appreciated its vintage appeal. Although it was bittersweet for our sellers to part with their childhood home, they put trust in our team and knew we would make the transition as seamless as possible for them. We were so honored to help them with the selling process, and are thrilled this special home will be loved by a new family.

Hello there! I’m Emma, and I’m so excited that our real estate paths have crossed. Here’s a little bit more about my journey into real estate, and what makes me uniquely qualified to help you navigate the ever-changing landscape of the market. I would consider myself a dynamic and dedicated professional who brings an authentic passion for helping my clients achieve their property dreams. My unique blend of tenacity and compassion makes me an invaluable asset to anyone seeking to buy or sell a home. Before embarking on my career in real estate, I honed my skills in the demanding field of hospitality. This experience gave me an exceptional knack for client care, unfailing attention to detail, and an unwavering commitment to satisfaction. A caretaker at heart, this is the lens through which I guide my clients through their home-buying endeavors with efficiency and grit. My zest for life has led me to many great experiences that extend beyond the realm of real estate. In addition to my many backpacking excursions abroad, I studied Psychology while competing at the Division III level for soccer at Vassar College in New York. Reading the playing field is essential in this business, and my keen awareness of the forces at play is one of my greatest assets. When I'm not hard at work for my clients, I can usually be found snowboarding Mt. Hood in the wintertime, and enjoying activities that focus around local, seasonal foods in the warmer months. Mornings at the farmer’s market followed by an afternoon in the kitchen are some of my best days. My love for all things culinary allows me to infuse creativity into every dish, much like the personalized approach I take with my real estate clients. As a mother of two young children, Zevi and Scout (and a sweet pup Pickle too!), I understand the importance of finding a home that caters to the needs and desires of a growing family. My personal experience as a parent gives me an empathetic edge in guiding families through the intricate process of finding the home that’s just right for them. I have a special place in my heart for those quaint neighborhoods tucked quietly behind Mount Tabor: Montavilla, Cherry Park, Hazelwood, and Parkrose Heights to name a few. While my service extends to all areas surrounding Portland, I feel strongly that this area of Portland has so much to offer its residents: cute shops and amenities, friendly neighbors, diverse culture and convenience to get anywhere in the city in a jiffy. When you choose me as your real estate agent, you can rest assured that you're partnering with a professional who not only possesses the expertise of the industry but also embodies the qualities that make me a trusted advisor. I care deeply for my community in Portland, and I'm excited to bring my clients home to the magic this city has to offer. Have you ever wondered what homeownership might look like for you? Let’s grab coffee and chat about it.
