Fixer Upper!

By Kate Smith, March 19, 2020

I got a message from some past clients a while back stating they were interested in investing into real estate. We met for beers, we talked all things real estate, and all the different ways you can use your capital to invest in real estate. Fast forward about 3 months, and they are the proud new owners of an awesome opportunity in N. Portland. This photo was the very first “idea” they had for this house which catapulted them into all kinds of ideas for this amazing house. They are handy. They are motivated. And they have great taste! They have decided to rent out their current (and so dang cute) house, and move into this new one, and will be fixing it up and making it their very own. I honestly can’t wait to watch all the projects unfold. They promised me they will be updating their instagram stories as things start taking off. I am giddy with excitement!

My philosophy about real estate is that I am here to help two parties (buyer and seller) find each other and complete a transaction as smoothly as possible. Buying and selling homes can be emotional experiences, and I am here to ensure you have a professional advocate to help you through the necessary steps. My job is to obtain the best price, terms and conditions for my client. I also believe real estate transactions are far more satisfying to both parties when closing is a pleasant experience for everyone, and my goal is to do everything I can to relieve the stress, and help problem solve through any issues that may arise. I pride myself on being a pleasant realtor to work with. I stride to always communicate respectfully, professionally and in a timely manner with all parties involved. I also take a personal interest in every client I work with. The sale and/or purchase of your home is as important to me as it is to you. That is my commitment to you! I look forward to helping make your next real estate transaction a pleasant and painless experience, and hopefully even a little fun!
