From Reno to Portland in 33 days.

From Reno to Portland in 33 days.

Matt and Eliese found out in mid-September that due to the wonders of digital communication, they could move anywhere they want and keep their jobs, working mostly remotely. Of course, being connoisseurs of our beloved Portland, they chose to move back here where I originally met them over 12 years ago.

They had already done a lot of online research and had identified neighborhoods they hope to live in. On October 8th they came to town and we begin our search. 7 houses, 20,912 ft.², 25 bedrooms and 21 baths later, we we’re back to the one that was their original favorite. A lovely five bedroom, four bath Old Portland Craftsmen in the Creston Kenilworth neighborhood.

We made the offer on October 9, closed on November 6th and they move in this weekend. And the bonus round? Not only will they be back in Portland, they will be less than 25 blocks from me. Welcome home Matt, Eliese & Gemma!

I have lived in Portland my entire life and spent the last 20 years in the Creston-Kenilworth neighborhood of SE Portland. As such, I know inner SE like the back of my hand and I am very familiar with most neighborhoods in the Portland metro area. After almost 25 years filling people's homes with great design and art I shifted my love of finding great things, for great people, towards Real Estate. My eye for quality and attention to detail serves both my buyers and sellers equally. As a business owner most of my life, I understand the concepts of problem solving, coordination with others, and hard work. I always say..."Great things rarely come from a 40 hour work week." If you want a Portland native who is hard working, responsive, and compassionate - give me a call. I look forward to working with you to find that perfect home or that perfect buyer for yours whether the house be Craftsmen, Modern, brand new, or a fixer.
