First time home buyers find perfection in Vista Hills

By Ben Jelline, October 4, 2021

John and Paige had been looking for their first home for quite some time. Like many other buyers in this hot sellers’ market, the process had been daunting from the beginning, and filled with many disappointments. One offer after another had been rejected, as the homes they were interested in were selling for well over asking price. Eventually, the frustration proved to be too much, and they decided to take a break from their search and enjoy their summer.

After a few months off, they decided to look for a new agent to guide them in their “search 2.o.” That’s when we met, and our hunt began. After looking at several homes on the west side to no avail, a very fortuitous set of circumstances arose. An off-market deal came out of the woodwork on a home that they absolutely adored. And a little over a month later, they are beyond excited to close on their new home this week. John and Paige are wonderful humans with very bright futures ahead of them. They are a great team and a lovely couple to be around. I couldn’t be more excited for them, and it was absolutely my pleasure to be able to assist them in their search. I look forward to celebrating with them very soon!

As a lifelong Portland resident, and a local business owner of nearly 20 years, I have established deep roots in every corner of the Portland metropolitan area. There isn’t a neighborhood in town I haven’t developed a working knowledge of in some shape or form. While I have resided almost exclusively on the west side, I've bought, sold, rented, managed, or renovated real estate in every part of Portland, and throughout Lake Oswego and Beaverton. I have extensive experience in home construction and renovation, and have a proven track record of adding value to homes with thoughtful design and quality craftsmanship.
I pride myself on my loyalty, respectfulness, trustworthiness, and honesty in my dealings with every person I come across in life. As my client, my goal will be to earn your trust from the moment we begin working together, and prove to you that I have your best interests at heart. As a local business leader I developed a passion for creating an organized and efficient workflow, and providing unparalleled customer service. I am very thorough, and a highly-skilled communicator and negotiator. But above all else, I am calm, cool, and collected, and I strive to create and maintain a low-stress environment in everything I do.
I am a very proud husband to my beautiful and successful wife Kate, and a dedicated father to my two young kids Grey and Reece. When we aren’t working or in school, we spend our time enjoying our wonderful yard with our friends and family, or traveling to our favorite destinations both near and far.
I hope that I get the chance to prove my worth when the time comes to buy or sell real estate.
