East St. John’s Living

6944 N. Armour St., Portland, OR 97203


Living in Portland is great!  Especially in the summer when the weather is sunny and dry and people are out and about exploring the wonderful neighborhoods and nature surrounding Oregon.  Buying in Portland is another story.  It’s competitive, fast, and difficult most times.  This is more apparent in certain price ranges and neighborhoods.  This home located at 6944 N. Armour is located in the East St. John’s neighborhood.  This house was bought with the best intentions 4 years ago and was upgraded to complete a full life of happiness and joy.  Two years ago the roof was done, siding was replaced with Hardy Board, irrigation was placed, bathrooms were upgraded, floors refinished.  Then life happens and it’s time to move on to bigger and better things.  A change of scenery if you will.  Let this home be your next step in becoming a part of Portland and all it has to offer. Come and see this beautiful home any time and give me a call.

I have been told by many people that "Portlanders don't like outsiders". Well I'm not from here. I come from a place that rates high in food culture, architectural history, and questionable politics. It's called Chicago and I miss it a lot and loved being born and raised there. That being said, I am not going back. I came here to Portland for a visit and couldn't get it out of my mind. The proximity of Mt. Hood and all of its wonders, the food carts, the waterfalls, the Gorge...are just a few of the beautiful aspects of this state that spoke to me. I moved here in July 2013. The first year of living here I wondered if I would stay despite the aforementioned qualities of Portland and Oregon in general. The more I worked and had some introspective moments the more I realized, I'm staying because of the people. Portland and its people are nice. Plain old nice and proud. They are open and welcoming. They ask "What made you want to move here?" knowing that they want to share their reasons for living here. The air here is literally and figuratively clean. I've had multiple conversations with people about their love of Oregon and all it has to offer. A LITTLE MORE... I went to college for business, dropped out, went back and finished with a degree in healthcare. Then went back to finish my BS in Business Administration with a minor in International Finance. While working in some of the busiest Emergency Departments in Chicago, Manhattan, and San Francisco I was always searching for more. I co-founded a sports uniform business that supplied basketball uniforms to approximately 45 schools throughout the city of Chicago. After selling my shares to the co-founder I obtained my REALTOR® license in Chicago in July of 2007. I became rookie of the year for my company and fell in love with all things real estate. Now I'm here and have purposely waited to obtain my Portland REALTOR® license until I felt I could speak to clients about the neighborhoods, schools, personalities, and quirks of Portland. I want to share my knowledge and new found love for Portland and its people with others and help them find their LIVING ROOM.
