Dreams of Concordia!!!

By Matt Guy, November 15, 2018

We met over the summer, Candace had just graduated from Medical school, and was moving back to the Portland area with her new job in Sleep Medicine.  Alex had been holding down the fort, and their home here in Portland for the last few years, keeping himself busy with home projects, his love of home-brewing, and enduring lonely, sleepless nights apart from Candace.
They let me know of their dreams to move to close-in NE, and away from their current house and into that bigger 2nd home.  Hopes of spaces for family, and a little more elbow room – also the cozy comfort of living in that “not-first-time” home that doesn’t quite need as much work, were images that floated through their heads during afternoon siestas.
The first home we found and put in an offer, was a classic Alberta-Arts bungalow, brick exterior and inviting front porch, the works!!!  But after inspections – the home turned out to be a nightmare… it definitely fell under the “too much work” category – and likely would keep Alex and Candace up all hours of the night, so they had to move on from it.
But they didn’t want to slumber on their search, or hit snooze on the chance of finding the right second home, and they did not get a bit of shut-eye until they found it.  This home was a dream come true, with more space, and walkable to so many great places in Concordia and Alberta Arts.
Now they can sleep well, with the peace and tranquility of a dream fulfilled, and the ease of living their perfect home.
Here’s to many happy years in your new home, go get some shut-eye!!

Professional Service:

Finding an agent you are comfortable with is similar to, and as important, as your connection with a good attorney, accountant or financial adviser. It is my goal to help you make the best, informed decision regarding your real estate needs. Whether it is with a Buyer or a Seller, I enjoy working to help people achieve their goals. Communication is a very important aspect throughout the home buying and selling process, and I hope you find that I treat my clients with respect and show them the hard work and ethical standards that I use in my everyday practice. I enjoy working through the complexities of the transaction and have the ability to solve problems when they arise, and thrive on my ability to handle the details of a real estate transaction with professionalism, integrity and care. Like selling or buying a home, first impressions are paramount to the success of obtaining a sale. I hope that you find my professional image shines through, and that my over 18 years of real estate experience, knowledge and energy will be helpful and refreshing, as have many of my clients who have rewarded me through their repeated use and referrals.

Love of Portland:

I work throughout the Portland Metro Area, and have lived on both the East and West sides of Portland. I am very excited to live in a city with so many beautiful homes and neighborhoods. I also love Oregon and am proud to be a life long Oregonian. I have moved back to neighborhood that my Father spent his childhood and am proud to share in the history where I live. I live 8 blocks from the church where my Aunt and Uncle were married in 1956. I also love the many activities and restaurants around Portland and the nearby outdoors that it has to offer. Whether shopping at New Seasons or a farmers market, enjoying the many great parks, Portland has a great progressive and environmental spirit that helps to make it such a wonderful place to live.

More to me than real estate:

I am a former competitive Ultimate Frisbee player, and over the past few years have competed in marathons, triathlons, and other running events like the Hood to Coast. I have raised over $3000 for the Windermere Foundation through pledges from my family, friends and clients while running two Eugene Marathons. Also in 2011, I ran the New York City Marathon. In my spare time I enjoy running, hiking, playing soccer, Ultimate, and basketball. Basically, I like being active.  I guess I need to, to keep up with my two amazing children, Elliott & Nao.
