Entertainer’s Delight

Ted and Angela said they like to entertain, so when I stopped by on their first day in their new home to find there had already been a steady flow of visitors and a gathering was in progress, it was clear this was the perfect spot for them.

Sometimes, as a real estate agent, I get that feeling that a place is just right for my clients and it is so rewarding when it all comes together. The moment I opened the door to this classic, yet re-envisioned 1920 Craftsman style home, I knew it was ‘the one’. I called Ted and Angela on the spot and asked how fast they could get to Portland from their home in Seattle. We had looked at enough homes together that were not quite right and I did not want them to miss this one which had everything on their list.

The right kitchen. Really a righteous kitchen! The massive custom designed island and hutch will be the center of parties and of life in this awesome Hollywood neighborhood home.

Old Friends

Thank you to Rachel for referring her childhood friend!

For Angela this is a homecoming. She grew up in Portland and is returning to lots of old friends and family, while for Ted, this is the first time Portland will be home. As for Sammy, the canine of the family, home is wherever his people are; being near Grant Park, with its off leash area, completes the dream.

Sammy the happy dog

Welcome to Portland Ted, Angela and Sammy!

Bonnie hit the real estate scene in Portland when Silence of the Lambs was killing it in the theaters, the Cold War was officially chilled and the national median sales price of a home was $120,000. Since then, she's been delighted to assist clients in navigating the ever changing housing market: whether selling a first home or the family home, looking for a starter pad or a forever habitat, downsizing, resizing or buying and selling investment property. Having a symbiotic connection with your real estate agent is key and will help ensure a great experience. Bonnie enjoys consulting with potential clients to discover their wishes and goals, confirming the right client-agent match. Smooth transactions are the target; however, there can be unexpected bumps getting to the closing table.
