Blog Stories Bittersweet


By Living Room Realty, December 10, 2018

Brian came to me with a bittersweet story. He was being given a gift from his mom to help purchase a home, so that she could live with him and his fiancé and be taken care of as her Parkinson’s advanced. The goal was to find a home with two separate living spaces, to provide some separation, but to avoid stairs and allow for independence with dignity. A lot of split-level homes provided the perfect separation of space, but came with stairs going both up and down to get anywhere. Enter SE 9th. The main entrance of the home contained no stairs, and a breath-taking view of the ½ acre lot. Not only that, but the slope of the backyard allows for a stair-less entry to the downstairs separate living quarters of the home. This home provides everything needed, and more, and I couldn’t be happier for Brian and his family to have less bitter and more sweet memories in a home of their own. Congratulations!
