Family Friends Buying Homes

By Living Room Realty, February 13, 2018

Family Friends Buying Homes. I first met Jim and Carol when I was 12 years old. Their daughter, Stephanie and I had struck a friendship at summer camp on fateful year. We left camp, excited to return home and remain friends. We talked everyday and came up with a plan to meet up at the mall and go shopping. Both our moms thought we were crazy to think they’d let us go to the mall unattended, with a girl they’d never met. So, being the protective moms that they are, they came with us. The rest is pretty much history. From that day forward our families have been close friends. We’ve traveled together, attending sporting events, many dinner parties and countless memories have been made.

A few years back they sold their family home and moved across town, with a plan of renting for a few years. Tired of life in a rental, they were ready to explore their options of purchasing a home again. They were living in a townhouse in Lake Oswego and wanting to stay in the area. Well, as luck would have it they caught wind that their neighbor- immediately next door was getting ready to list her home. I did a little research and found out she was planning to list right after New Years; however, we were able to put a deal together without the home even going on the market. 2018 started off perfectly for Jim and Carol, soon they would be homeowners again. The best part was that their move would be easy and they could continue living in the community that they were already comfortable and familiar in.

It was an honor and truly a privilege to help my long time family friends throughout this transaction. I am so excited and happy for them. I can’t wait for all the dinner parties and football games in their new home!
