Having Fun In the Cuts

By Jake Goodson, August 6, 2018

We love Oregon.  And we get around because you cant just stay in the city all your life.  Many of our clients/friends feel the same way.  I think a lot of us dream of moving to the hinterlands (to borrow and Australian phrase) where we can work in the city but live somewhere closer to nature, quieter, more peaceful.  The ironic thing is that it is cheaper where you get those things.  Brightwood, Zig-zag, super affordable.  Close to town, world class mountain biking, skiing and best of all QUIET.  This place makes me so jealous. Its got all the things in the sweetest location.  Looking forward to some post-ride beers on that deck!

A lot of my energy goes to helping others: helping my daughter grow up, helping my clients reach their goals and helping my colleagues grow as agents and people.  I have found that giving of myself, my gifts, my time, my talents, is what I am here to do. The meaning of my life starts with giving myself to others. It's there, in that space of love and sacrifice that I have found incredible abundance. All the touchy feely stuff aside, (I’m not a hippy I swear!) I have spent over 14 years being a real estate agent. In today’s hectic marketplace being someone who has the experience, commitment, and know-how will help you navigate the world of real estate. The art of orchestrating a transaction is what I enjoy about the profession most. There are also times during the lifecycle of a transaction when it stalls or hits the wall.  I have a knack for creating solutions in these situations. Perhaps more importantly, I never let emotions or my ego get in the way. I also specialize in the creative aspects behind inexpensive transformations that can, in many cases, trigger higher selling prices for listings. I posses a unique ability to manage full scale property renovations and have a good eye for design, placement of furniture, and art. Graduating from the University of Oregon with honors in English and Creative Writing helps with the contracts: a little “creative writing” never hurts! I was born in Santa Rosa, CA and moved to Oregon at a very young age, but went to high school in Oregon, California and Washington. I did a brief stint in the Bay Area after high school and am now finding that the people I met at house parties in the early 90’s are moving up here now. Go figure! Outside of work I try to enjoy all that Oregon has to offer: surfing, snowboarding, skating, you name it. I have traveled all over the globe and can honestly say this is my favorite place on earth. I still need to get that snowboarding/Onsen trip to Japan in though. Oh and maybe a sabbatical in New Zealand & Australia. We will see... Last but not least spending time with my darling daughter Celine is my greatest joy. You may see us biking around PDX or running around near our beach house in Manzanita. If you are looking to make room to live, give me a call. Jake Goodson jake@livingroomre.com 503-730-8677 Cell
