High Fives and Positive Vibes

By Constance Rigney, April 16, 2018

Though there is something to love about everyone I get to work with, sometimes there is a whole lot to love!  This was one of those times; Lauren and Jeremiah were those clients.  Even when things weren’t looking their brightest, cool heads and warm hearts prevailed, and we were able to have a great time.

Lauren and Jeremiah’s  primary home is a lovely wooded wonderland in Washington state.  In Portland they were on the hunt for a city home.  Something with great walkability, neighborhood charm, and perhaps even some rental potential. Living out of town and shopping for a house in Portland can feel like a daunting task; especially in the fast-moving spring market. But, Lauren and Jeremiah, (tenacious and ever optimistic) didn’t give up after the first two homes they chose didn’t work out. They headed in to town one more time, with open hearts and positives vibes, and found a quintessential hundred year old, North Portland home to love. A quick walk to all that Mississippi Avenue has to offer, this home was in just the location they were hoping for.
There were a few quirks that needed to be worked out. Thanks to a great listing agent on the other side, some well-versed experts, and Lauren and Jeremiah’s amazing attitudes, everyone was able to come together; with high-fives all around.

25 years ago I left a tiny town in the small state of Connecticut and headed west for the big trees, big mountains, and rugged beauty of Oregon. My eyes are still wide with wonder today. Though I've had some love affairs with Washington and California, Oregon is my soul-state. Captivated by Portland (and my husband Scott), I made a cozy North Portland Craftsman Bungalow my home. And so began my infatuation with Portland culture--the tiny neighborhood restaurants, the most amazing large bookstore, the crocheted bike racks, the local musicians, the murals, and of course, the perfectly poured pints. I spent ten wonderful years in this city as a practitioner of Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine. Learning even more about Portland's community, neighborhoods, and hidden gems through the tales and experiences my clients shared with me. The city became so much more than a collection of places; it became the story of the people who call Portland home. It's clear to me that helping people on their journey to wellness is not so different from helping people through the process of buying or selling a home. It begins with making a connection, establishing trust, and finding joy in the process. I'm here to advocate for you, find the answers you need, and smooth any bumps along the way. In my time, I've rented, renovated, restored, bought and sold homes. I understand, first hand, the challenges, hard work, and financial and emotional investments in the buying/selling/rental processes.  My goal as your agent is to support your needs and desires, and to work together to find the perfect place for you to begin, or rekindle, your own love affair with the city I'm so glad to call home.
