Blog Stories Down-Sizing


By Drew Burchette, May 14, 2019

Lately I’ve been working with lots of folks who have been down-sizing. Frankly, I’m jealous. I spent my 20’s and 30’s acquiring stuff, then I woke up one day in my 40’s and decided that I didn’t really want much of it. It has made me really question what “stuff” is. And asking the question: do you own it or does it own you? It also makes me reflect back to a great George Carlin quote: “Have you ever noticed that everyone else’s stuff is shit and all of your shit is stuff?” Anyway, I just want to get rid of all of my shit and only keep my stuff.

Long story short, I’m stuck with most of my stuff and my client has an awesome opportunity to off load some baggage as he moves into his new, smaller home.

Principal Broker

I arrived in the real estate business over a decade ago and have since helped scores of people buy and sell their homes. The groundswell that I created in my practice is rooted in the relationships that I have nurtured over the years. My style is educational, and I see myself as the coach and leader of your real estate transaction. My coaching is geared towards empowering you to make informed decisions that will lead to your best possible outcome. I excel at asking the questions that get to the heart of the matter which in turn enables a smooth sale process. Away from the office I am passionate about so many things, but it all begins and ends with my family. My boys are both in elementary school and parenting is an ongoing challenge and joy for my wife and I. We love to travel around Oregon, the East Coast, Mexico and beyond. My passion for surfing, kiteboarding, and fishing help to keep me grounded in life. Read more reviews
