Citified in SE Portland!

On the move to SE Portland

 

After years of living in a 1930 farmhouse near Boring, Oregon, that had been in the family for generations, Lisa and her teen boys decided it was time for the urban life. Excited by all that the recently renovated and expanded Franklin High School offers, they made that the focus of their home search. Wanting something entirely different than the old familiar digs, Lisa jumped on a new listing of a 2009 home with plenty of outlets and bathrooms. Miraculously, the seller accepted their offer and cancelled the scheduled open house. Lucky duck to get the first offer accepted right off the bat.

The boys are chomping at the bit for summer fun at the Mt. Scott Community Center pool in the wild waves. They are eager to bike and skateboard to all the cool places on nearby Woodstock Blvd and Foster Road. Lisa will love hanging out at the Portland Mercado and the New Seasons Rooftop Patio.

 

 

 

 

 

I plan to use every visit to their new home as an excuse to grab a bite at Off The Griddle, one of my favorite places for a vegan burger and a slice of Shoefly Pie!

Bonnie hit the real estate scene in Portland when Silence of the Lambs was killing it in the theaters, the Cold War was officially chilled and the national median sales price of a home was $120,000. Since then, she's been delighted to assist clients in navigating the ever changing housing market: whether selling a first home or the family home, looking for a starter pad or a forever habitat, downsizing, resizing or buying and selling investment property. Having a symbiotic connection with your real estate agent is key and will help ensure a great experience. Bonnie enjoys consulting with potential clients to discover their wishes and goals, confirming the right client-agent match. Smooth transactions are the target; however, there can be unexpected bumps getting to the closing table. Bonnie excels at finding creative solutions to any mishegoss that pops up and she takes pride in an extremely low sale fail rate. A little more about Bonnie: born in Philly, raised in Berkeley, mom to an incredible young woman; her home is filled with both furry and scaly creatures, the daily driver is all electric, equality is the only pathway; she's embraced veganism for the earth, the animals and her health.
