A dog runs through it

By Daniela Sardo, July 24, 2019

Kelli and her mom Scotty were searching for a home. For Kelli, her first and potentially her forever home. For Scotty, currently running a kennel in Arkansas, this would be her retirement home in a few years if Kelli could ever convince her mom to retire.

The love letter

“Your home is exactly what my mother and I have been looking to find! In a few years when my mom retires and moves to Portland this will be the perfect place for her to come home to. In the meantime I will live here and maintain the brilliance of the home with my 2 dogs and the many fosters from the Oregon Humane Society that I take care. I cannot wait to rescue some chickens and take care of the gorgeous gardens. I have volunteered with the Audubon society for a year now and I just love that the front garden is certified. This beautiful home means so much to my small family and all of our beloved rescued critters. Please give me the opportunity to own a home where I can thrive and let my amazing mother retire in absolute bliss.”

Things took a bit of time to fall into place for Kelli and Scotty. They had trouble with offers on two previous homes where they were outbid. Both time their offers were significantly over asking. On one, they went 64k over asking but were beat out by 5 other offers! On this home, Kelli and Scotty ended up in backup position. However, good things come to those who wait.

Third time is a charm

Soon after, we received that phone call. Kelli & Scotty were moved into first position! Within a few more weeks, I found Kelli out in the front yard one night exploring all the foliage that was now hers to care for as I delivered the keys to her brand new home!

You might see me riding my motorcycle down a long winding Oregon country road in Eagle Creek, or scooting in-and-out of traffic in NE Portland, as I make my way through Last Thursday on Alberta.
