Cheap Drinks After Work Anyone?

By Dill Ward, September 12, 2020

One of the few places, in my experience, that truly embodies Portland’s culture of having space for all to enjoy.

Whenever I walk into here, the staff immediately greets me and is excited to see me… again for another round of happy hour!

The Observatory has been my tried-and-true go to happy hour spot after a long, very long day of work! Don’t get me wrong – I LOVE my job, but there are sometimes just those days where the Universe just says “You’re going to have a bad day, sorry not sorry”.

The food & drinks here are amazing with so many diverse options! Whenever I stop in for happy hour, I always get their garlic parmesan rosemary fries, BBQ pulled pork tacos, and the house white wine and only end up paying ~ $15 for the whole meal! 

The food isn’t the only thing that keeps me coming back, but rather the atmosphere as well. The interior has been designed to be more sophisticated yet casual fitting almost every occasion! Every staff member I have met here has been so inviting and happy! It’s always a good time coming here with family and friends and catching up where it’s always our first choice when picking happy hour spots. So whenever you’re just having one of those days, call up all your girlfriends and hit up the Observatory!

She/Her

I'm a strategist at heart. Once we've got a clear vision on your goals I love drawing the road map how to get there. I'm a natural problem solver and resiliency is my superpower. I get excited by nudging you to see the bigger picture of your goals when the process can drag you down into the moment. I've been called by my clients as, "contagiously enthusiastic". Selling a home or taking the leap to buy is an exciting transition which can create other shifts and opportunities for you to take control of the direction of your life and discover the next version of yourself.

WILL YOU TAKE TWO BUCKS INSTEAD OF THREE?

Negotiating was a skill I honed early in life, whether it was persuading for a later bedtime, or heading down to South Florida flea markets where my parents would encourage me to, "work a deal" on a comic book or a kitchen gadget. Even back then, I loved the thrill of asking for what I want.

HOW I'M WIRED:

For those of you who geek out about self development and personality tests, my "Strengths Finder" results are: Positivity, Strategic, Activator, Learner, and Ideation.

I LOVE PORTLAND! (and welcoming new people)

I relocated to Portland from Florida in 2010, and am grateful to have built an incredible life here in this weird city. It's always an honor to be a welcoming face and a warm smile to others arriving and looking for home.

WHAT I DO WHEN I'M NOT THINKING ABOUT REAL ESTATE?

Wait, is that a thing? I'm always thinking about real estate. I love wheeling and dealing! Before I was a REALTOR®, I started the journey as an investor. Fun fact: I helped an investment group flip over 100 properties my first 2 years in industry! I've had a rental portfolio for over 10 years and dabble in all areas of the industry. My speciality is the concierge level service we can deliver when someone wants to sell and let us take the wheel. My team and I love to work as project managers and orchestrate the 50 different vendors & contractors to make miracles happen in short amounts of time.

I'M PASSIONATE ABOUT

• My husband & biz-partner Nicholas. (He's a High Performance Coach & REALTOR® -- dreamy combo!), and our young daughter Nori. • Building Community! Check out Women who Own it, a monthly meetup community for women homeowners. • Offering networking opportunities, encouragement, and business coaching for women in business at Women with Moxie. • Spreading motivation and inspiration in the world through public speaking and event emceeing. • Finding ways to make people smile. Enough about me -- if you are still reading this far, i'm dying to know about you! Use my easy online scheduler and let's book a meeting! Buy, sell, just a get-to-know each other to possibly collaborate on some amazing project? Easy breezy!
