Happy in Gladstone!

By Annalisa Peña, November 13, 2021

Away from the hustle and bustle, but just close enough to a quaint downtown drag – Gladstone has it all, while still being one of the most affordable places to buy a home in the Portland Metro area. The average home price in Milwaukie/Gladstone is $530,000 compared to Portland at $571,500  as of Sept

2021 per RMLS. Most homes in the area were built in the 60s and sit on larger lots. Wondering what else the area has to offer?

Downtown Gladstone has a quaint strip of shops, library and post office. Spend the day thrifting or browsing antiques at Gladstone Mercantile, get coffee at Happy Rock or a slice of pizza at Portland Pizza Co. When you’re ready for a nature escape, go play at the nearby Willamette River or or wander on the other side of the river at Mary S. Young Park. With a little bit of everything, it’s hard to be sad in Gladstone!

A Portland native, my vast knowledge of the city’s geography and current market can support you in your residential real estate endeavors.

I am motivated by helping others, and I’m excited to help you find the best real estate solution for your lifestyle. My passion and years of experience in interior design and home renovation offer you a skilled perspective in aesthetics and function. I will actively advocate for and represent you with the best service, ensure that you are making the right decision, and manage your transaction and moving pieces with the utmost professionalism. I attended Oregon State University and received a Bachelor of Science degree in Merchandising Management and Interior Design. After spending 8 years in the window treatment industry (blinds and drapery will always have a special place in my heart!), I launched my real estate career. I work with a wide variety of clients, from first time home buyers to investors and those relocating to Portland. Design work allows my creative spirit to roam and I was honored to be featured in Oregon Home magazine. I chose to work at Living Room Realty because of their dedication to enriching communities across the Portland area, and I’m so happy that I get to build relationships with clients right here at home. In my downtime, you can find me at my kid’s soccer game, helping paint a neighborhood intersection, or sneaking away to Black Butte for a weekend at the cabin.
