Gratitude Abounds!

By Shannon Dooley, March 20, 2020

Sometimes you just get lucky. Really lucky. This was that kind of lucky you have when you meet someone and you’re just like, “yes,” these are my people. That was what it was like when I met this amazing couple.

Making the move to Portland from New York is a big one, but these two took their time to learn the city and definitely fell in love. So it happened, like we do when we fall in love with someone or someplace, they decided to move in. No more toothbrush at your place kind of scenario… the real deal. It was time to buy a house. We had our list and it was fairly specific. I thought for sure we’d look for a month or so to get a feel for what’s out there so they could see what their options looked like. Then wildfire. They walked in to the first house and that was it, they begrudgingly looked at one more, but there was no reason to waste time – we needed to get an offer in on this house!

We worked our way through a couple of difficult issues but they were unflappable and so calm and kind, it was a dream. I look forward to the housewarming party and am excited for them to start their new adventures as homeowners in the city they fell in love with.

Shannon grew up in a real estate family, and as a third generation Realtor it seems that it is actually in her DNA. She spent 18 years working in public service both as a Medic and a City of Portland 9-1-1 Dispatcher, but real estate has always been her passion. Her first investment in Portland area real estate was in 2003 and she has been actively watching and participating in the market since. She believes owning real estate is empowering and wants to see as many people own homes as possible. Shannon’s commitment to honesty and ethical practice is evident to her clients and has earned her the Five Star Professional Rising Star award two years running. As an Earth Advantage Broker and ADU specialist Shannon is happy to talk your ear off about the possibilities that exist and help you determine the route that best suits your real estate goals. When working with clients she always put their best interest first: * Sellers, she will market your home to the largest pool of buyers possible using professional networks and Living Room Realty’s comprehensive marketing. * Buyers, she loves helping you find new homes and working collaboratively with other agents to ensure a positive experience. * First Time Home Buyers, you hold a special place in Shannon’s heart. She takes great pride in taking time to explain the process so you never feel lost and (little secret) she still gets a little teary eyed when she hands over those keys. * Real Estate Investors, she wants to help you build your portfolio. Whether it’s your first investment property or your fifteenth, regardless of the complexity, she’ll have it under control. Having lived in many of Portland’s neighborhoods, Shannon found herself in love with North Portland where she has settled with her husband Craig, their two dogs Arnold and Spencer, and the worlds most talkative cat John Meowkovich. Craig is a licensed home inspector and general contractor by day, but the two of them are always taking on some sort of creative life endeavor. They have started a food truck, purchased and developed a small farm, written and illustrated a children’s book, etc. I think the kids these days would say they, “Can’t stop, won’t stop.” They have a daughter who is currently traveling Europe for several months with her girlfriend – this brings them incredible joy. Shannon loves traveling, meeting new people, attempting to keep house plants alive, exploring Portland neighborhoods, and supporting local businesses.
