First Time’s a Charm!

By Erika George & Kari McGee, August 26, 2021

When our lovely client Lynda called us about purchasing a house in Portland, we gave her the usual “speech” about steadying and pacing herself for a brutal market for buyers.  We warned her that it was not uncommon for a buyer to make offers on up to 5 different homes before “landing” one.  When we found this lovely home in Lents, she was tickled:  it was just the right size, in wonderful condition and MOST importantly, super close to her grandchildren!  She asked us how she could get her first offer accepted, and then she did everything we advised.  She made concessions on price, appraisal, and inspections AND it worked out!  Now — in the next few weeks ,she will be reunited with her family after shockingly little real estate drama.  This is the result of a perfect combination of beginner’s luck and buyer savvy for sure!!

Congratulations Linda — we can’t wait to watch you make this house your home!
