Unicorn for Doug and Roxie

When Doug originally reached out to us, we had our brainstorming session to delve into his home search criteria. This is always such a fun part of the home search process where we get to craft and pin point what the goal in the new home is so that we don’t go off course.  In this case, Doug originally thought that he wanted a condo, but soon came to realize that he could cut down on his mortgage and get a larger home within the city limits so that his best pal Roxie could run and play in the back yard.

So, we set out on Doug & Roxie’s adventure to find the right home that fit both of their needs without going over budget. Doug’s mom was able to come down to watch Roxie while we went home touring and viewed 5 of Doug’s top picks on a hot Saturday afternoon. Then we found it: the unicorn. As soon as we stepped inside the temperature dropped and the immediate feeling was cool and inviting. This was it.

This home quickly became exactly what Doug and Roxie had been searching for. Doug’s mom also was also very excited and already started envisioning herself moving in, which Doug seemed to like that idea especially with more help to watch his beloved Roxie. 

We are so happy for you Doug! You were able to find the perfect home that fit both yours and Roxie’s needs for less than your current rent and what you may have paid for if we went the condo route. We are so impressed with your wise judgment and how the whole process went to get you the keys to your new home sweet home in your hands.

Cheers to you Doug and Roxie!

Jason: I am a rugged Jamaican/Oregonian who loves nature and the city. My family immigrated to the US when I was 13 and ever since then Oregon has become my home as well as my adventure playground. When I am not fighting hard for my clients as their guide in this ever evolving Real Estate Market, I am an avid surfer and snowboarder. All year round I have been blessed to find some of Oregon's best set ups for waves. There's nothing quite like Oregon's sandy coastline that brings in a wide range of waves. During deep of winter, you can find me taking breaks from laps at Timberline lodge with a good IPA in hand. For those powder days I make sure to head to Meadows or Skibowl with my snorkel so I stay afloat. Aside from my love of high adrenaline sports, I have a deep passion for interior & exterior plantscaping/gardening. Along with gardening I love learning about bees and their pivotal role in the world. I received my Master bee Keeping Apprentice and have been fascinated with them ever since. I love sharing life with out clients and showcasing Oregon's gorgeous neighborhoods, landscape, its abundant activities and never ending delicious eateries. Kristin & I work hard to help our clients have an amazing journey in the sale/purchase of their home. This is a huge decision for our clients and we don't take our role lightly. Our goal is to be your realtor for life and bring a smile to your face at the end of each and every transaction. Kristin: I was born in Jamaica, grew up in the Philippines & raised by American parents who now live in Chaing Rai, Thailand. About 6 years ago, I was in Thailand visiting family and was trying to figure out what was the next adventure I wanted to go on. I pulled up my laptop and typed in Google: “Where to live in America that is near the ocean, mountains, and has great public transportation.” Portland, OR kept popping up. So, I bought myself a one way ticket and haven’t regretted it since. I have been a nomad for most of my life, living in 7 countries and traveling through 25. Portland has continued to keep me planted due to its magnetic force that brings people from all over the country & the world together; great food, creative cocktails, & beautiful landscape. Some cities have a way of making you feel swallowed up, Portland has a magical way of making you feel at home from the minute you arrive. Once I found my bearings in Portland, I quickly fell in love with Real Estate. As a kid, we all had a theme of Christmas ornaments, mine were always mini houses. I’ve always had an appreciation for the architectural design of homes, and the meaning of what “home” can mean to each person. My home was wherever my family was growing up, and there’s something pretty amazing about seeing a permanent space reflect the meaning of “home.”
