Cycling Into Victory

By Jason & Kristin Anderson, November 12, 2019

We met Petr and Heather on a beautiful sunny day which started off our meeting with bright smiles and good energy. They immediately made us feel good about working together because of their decisiveness and clear outlook on what this home journey was going to look like for them. They are both avid cyclist and being close to work so that they could commute by bike was important for them.

At first we were looking more at condos and then the home search took a turn for townhomes. Then one beauty came across their paths that was so close to Costco and the max which was a huge plus for them. Plus it had a 2 car oversized garage! Very rare for a townhome.

In order to get into contract we had a few round of negotiations upfront with the sellers and finally settled upon the terms that Petr and Heather felt good about.  Negotiations didn’t stop there. After the inspections we spent a lot of time getting estimates and going back and forth with the seller to get concessions that Heather and Petr felt good about.

Heather & Petr were an absolute joy to work with and were so personable. We felt like we gained friends through the process of working together.

When we arrived at closing day it felt so good to see and feel the excitement from Petr and Heather to have a new home to call their own along with their beautiful pup Radar.

Cheers to you three! We are so honored to be part of the process of seeing you in your new home sweet home!

Jason: I am a rugged Jamaican/Oregonian who loves nature and the city. My family immigrated to the US when I was 13 and ever since then Oregon has become my home as well as my adventure playground. When I am not fighting hard for my clients as their guide in this ever evolving Real Estate Market, I am an avid surfer and snowboarder. All year round I have been blessed to find some of Oregon's best set ups for waves. There's nothing quite like Oregon's sandy coastline that brings in a wide range of waves. During deep of winter, you can find me taking breaks from laps at Timberline lodge with a good IPA in hand. For those powder days I make sure to head to Meadows or Skibowl with my snorkel so I stay afloat. Aside from my love of high adrenaline sports, I have a deep passion for interior & exterior plantscaping/gardening. Along with gardening I love learning about bees and their pivotal role in the world. I received my Master bee Keeping Apprentice and have been fascinated with them ever since. I love sharing life with out clients and showcasing Oregon's gorgeous neighborhoods, landscape, its abundant activities and never ending delicious eateries. Kristin & I work hard to help our clients have an amazing journey in the sale/purchase of their home. This is a huge decision for our clients and we don't take our role lightly. Our goal is to be your realtor for life and bring a smile to your face at the end of each and every transaction. Kristin: I was born in Jamaica, grew up in the Philippines & raised by American parents who now live in Chaing Rai, Thailand. About 6 years ago, I was in Thailand visiting family and was trying to figure out what was the next adventure I wanted to go on. I pulled up my laptop and typed in Google: “Where to live in America that is near the ocean, mountains, and has great public transportation.” Portland, OR kept popping up. So, I bought myself a one way ticket and haven’t regretted it since. I have been a nomad for most of my life, living in 7 countries and traveling through 25. Portland has continued to keep me planted due to its magnetic force that brings people from all over the country & the world together; great food, creative cocktails, & beautiful landscape. Some cities have a way of making you feel swallowed up, Portland has a magical way of making you feel at home from the minute you arrive. Once I found my bearings in Portland, I quickly fell in love with Real Estate. As a kid, we all had a theme of Christmas ornaments, mine were always mini houses. I’ve always had an appreciation for the architectural design of homes, and the meaning of what “home” can mean to each person. My home was wherever my family was growing up, and there’s something pretty amazing about seeing a permanent space reflect the meaning of “home.”
