A tale of St John’s Magic and Love

By Living Room Realty, April 26, 2018

Once upon a time, there was a beautiful couple who were very much in love, named Lee and Kelsey. Together, these two people decided it was time for a change…

Lee and Kelsey had been casually looking in Portland and Hood River for at least a year. They would often go back and forth about which area was calling to them. Lee grew up in Portland. Kelsey, a Canadian, loved how the log cabins and feel of Hood River would often remind her of her homeland. Kelsey loves smaller towns.  They both really did like the idea of both places, and it seemed like a hard choice to make.

I loved when I would randomly get a call asking to go tour a beautiful home in Hood River, or alternately, a beautiful home in Portland. It was a soft home search in the beginning , which was a part of their process on getting clear on what they wanted. Something I felt happy and grateful to help them with.

Sometimes it’s not clear what the next step is.  When this lack of clarity arises in real estate, I find the most helpful thing, is to pack up the car, and go tour homes that seem even a little bit intriguing. So this is what we did!

Soon the clarity came, and poof puff!

Magically the perfect house appeared and it all fell into place.

As is often the case, the home they ended up buying had multiple offers. Lee and Kelsey stepped up to the plate with grace, bravery, tenacity, and a winner’s attitude.

This story ends happily with them getting into a quintessential Portland home, and the ease and peace of mind that comes with a choice well made and a job well done.

I am grateful for the opportunity to have guided them on this journey, and grateful to be a REALTOR® once again.
