Episode IV

By Drew Burchette, February 4, 2021

Sunday evening…6:15 pm I get a text message from my client Beverly saying that she went to an open house over the weekend and wants to write an offer. My knee-jerk reaction was: I’ll take a look in the morn and get back with you. As I settled in to watch Star Wars, Ep. IV, A New Hope, with my family, I had this little tickle on the back of my neck telling me to check the listing sheet. Sure enough, offers where due at 8 pm; by now that was in 55 minutes. A quick call to the listing agent and I learned that there were already two on the table, but she said no problem if I got an offer in first thing Monday. I finished watching the movie; it ended the same way as it did the first time I watched when I was 5. I still got a little choked up when Princess Leia put the metals around Han & Luke’s necks after blowing up the Death Star. Did you know that Chewbacca didn’t get a metal? That is bullshit.

Anyway, the next morn I got the offer submitted before 9 am and had an excepted contract within a few hours. The house was a really cool town-home-style condo in Orenco Station. Such a neat little spot. You could live there and not get in your car for months if you wanted to! Enjoy your new place Beverly and may the force be with you.

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
