Brooklyn to BIG

By Laura Cavanaugh, February 26, 2018

My clients moved to the Portland area from Brooklyn, NY. As first-time home buyers, they were open to most possibilities spanning small homes in close in neighborhoods, modern homes in wooded areas and large, new construction in the suburbs. We saw a few homes and the choice came down to two – the modern home in the woods with a huge yard and the traditional, newer construction home with space galore in the suburbs. I had them pegged for the wooded home, but they surprised me when they chose the larger home in the suburbs. In retrospect, the choice is clear and I couldn’t be happier for them. Now, their sweet little boy has uber amounts of room to play, they are walking distance to a best friend and are still close enough to all Portland has to offer. Congrats to the Sisante’s on their amazing new home!

Growing up in a small town in the Willamette Valley, Laura quickly learned the beauty of Oregon.  Whether snowboarding at Timberline or playing on the beach in Gearhart, she knew that the diversity and beauty of the landscape would make her a native Oregonian for life. Moving to Portland over 12 years ago, Laura has called each quadrant of Portland home and loves how each neighborhood has its own unique vibe. A love of architecture and interior design made becoming a real estate agent a no brainer. Her goal in working for Living Room is to help her client’s real estate dreams come to fruition, whether that be a first home, an investment property or selling a home full of memories. She looks forward to the opportunity to make each and every client a client for life. In her spare time, you can find Laura chasing after her two adorable kiddos, Sloane and Holden, perusing Interior Design blogs, shopping for vintage treasures or, as an avid runner, hitting one of the amazing trails this city has to offer.
