Fixers fixing to fix!

By Ella Gray, July 1, 2020

CONGRATULATIONS to my wonderful buyers on their “new” home! Newish to Portland, but not new to fixing homes up, these two scored a great deal on a 98-year-old home in the fantastic location of SW Portland, Sylvan-Highlands. While the home is in definite need of some aesthetic updates and a new roof (check out that rainforest growing on the roof!), there’s not much more in the “fixing” department that needed to happen. These buyers scored a great deal and will put some sweat equity in the next few months before moving in. Can’t wait to show you the after photos!

Hi! I'm Ella Gray, a Portland transplant by way of New York City, Los Angeles, and Nashville. I'm very lucky to finally throw down some roots in this quirky, intelligent, beautiful city of Portland, and I LOVE to help PDX newbies, transplants, and life-long residents find their place in the perfect Portland neighborhood. When I’m not touring houses or prepping listings, I’m chasing my toddler in the Southwest trails and pursuing PDX stories & excitement in all five corners of the city.
