ALL IN THE FAMILY

By Drew Burchette, June 3, 2020

Last year I sold a house in Milwaukie to my clients Lizzi & Jeff. The house they purchased was on a flag lot and there was a significant amount of shared space with their yard and the adjoining property (the parent property that had frontage on the street). “It sure would be great if we could buy that house too someday” they remarked during our sale process.

Fast forward 6 months and I got the call: the house just went live and we want to take a look at it with our parents this weekend. Five minutes into the tour I realized that this was just a formality…they were definitely buying this house! There was a bunch of activity over the weekend, but theirs was the only offer and it was a no-brainer for all parties involved.

Now the family has their dream-compound with all of the privacy they desire and rooms to share + rent that you could ever need. Now, on to the neighbors on the other side (actually not joking…there has already been talk).

I arrived in the real estate business over a decade ago and have since helped scores of people buy and sell their homes. The groundswell that I created in my practice is rooted in the relationships that I have nurtured over the years. My style is educational, and I see myself as the coach and leader of your real estate transaction. My coaching is geared towards empowering you to make informed decisions that will lead to your best possible outcome. I excel at asking the questions that get to the heart of the matter which in turn enables a smooth sale process. Away from the office I am passionate about so many things, but it all begins and ends with my family. My boys are both in elementary school and parenting is an ongoing challenge and joy for my wife and I. We love to travel around Oregon, the East Coast, Mexico and beyond. My passion for surfing, kiteboarding, and fishing help to keep me grounded in life. Read more reviews
