Home Run For The Jones Family!

By Jason & Kristin Anderson, August 28, 2019

If there’s ever been a fighter it’s Becky Jones. Strong single mother of 3 strapping young boys, Lake Oswego Teacher and determined to make it on top with all of life’s obstacles thrown at her at once with a strong family to keep her going. I have rarely seen someone been able to step up to the plate and bat away one obstacle after another with humor and gusto like I have with Becky.  Becky contacted Jason & I in regards to doing a double transaction for her. We needed to sell her town home and get her into a new home before the school season started.

Thus the listing process & home search began. Becky found the right home that clicked most of her boxes but had tenants in place so we had to have a 90 day closing which most buyers can’t stomach (except for Becky) and still did not have her town home in contract so the chances of the sellers accepting our offer so soon to coming on the market was slim. We crafted the right offer with the right terms and within a few days we were in contract and now we needed to get that town home sold.  *Pow! Becky slammed that ball out into the outfield with full speed to take first base.

During the inspection process we found a lot about the home from the inspection of the home, the HOA and the neighborhood and after an intense battle we were able to negotiate a substantial credit and price reduction that would again set Becky on top.  * Pow! Another zinger slammed right back across the field. Second base was landed.

Meanwhile, days before our last day to get her town home in contract we received a cash offer that solidified the town home being one less contingency to the sale of Becky’s new home. * Pow! A slide into third base.

Everything was shaping up nicely, but the tenants were not budging in moving out early. So, we worked together with all parties to find a way to get Becky and the boys in their new home as soon as possible. Soon the tenants came around and allowed an early closing. Town home sold. New home on the horizon. Everything was coming together.

We closed 10 days ahead of schedule and Becky & the boys now have a new home that they are in the process of putting that Jones sparkle to. Home run complete.

We love you Becky, Brelan, Broden, Becket, Frances & Harold!

Thank you all for your continued trust in Jason & I to get you to the home run plate. We are proud to see you all come out as winners, which we would expect no less from the Jones Family.

Jason: I am a rugged Jamaican/Oregonian who loves nature and the city. My family immigrated to the US when I was 13 and ever since then Oregon has become my home as well as my adventure playground. When I am not fighting hard for my clients as their guide in this ever evolving Real Estate Market, I am an avid surfer and snowboarder. All year round I have been blessed to find some of Oregon's best set ups for waves. There's nothing quite like Oregon's sandy coastline that brings in a wide range of waves. During deep of winter, you can find me taking breaks from laps at Timberline lodge with a good IPA in hand. For those powder days I make sure to head to Meadows or Skibowl with my snorkel so I stay afloat. Aside from my love of high adrenaline sports, I have a deep passion for interior & exterior plantscaping/gardening. Along with gardening I love learning about bees and their pivotal role in the world. I received my Master bee Keeping Apprentice and have been fascinated with them ever since. I love sharing life with out clients and showcasing Oregon's gorgeous neighborhoods, landscape, its abundant activities and never ending delicious eateries. Kristin & I work hard to help our clients have an amazing journey in the sale/purchase of their home. This is a huge decision for our clients and we don't take our role lightly. Our goal is to be your realtor for life and bring a smile to your face at the end of each and every transaction. Kristin: I was born in Jamaica, grew up in the Philippines & raised by American parents who now live in Chaing Rai, Thailand. About 6 years ago, I was in Thailand visiting family and was trying to figure out what was the next adventure I wanted to go on. I pulled up my laptop and typed in Google: “Where to live in America that is near the ocean, mountains, and has great public transportation.” Portland, OR kept popping up. So, I bought myself a one way ticket and haven’t regretted it since. I have been a nomad for most of my life, living in 7 countries and traveling through 25. Portland has continued to keep me planted due to its magnetic force that brings people from all over the country & the world together; great food, creative cocktails, & beautiful landscape. Some cities have a way of making you feel swallowed up, Portland has a magical way of making you feel at home from the minute you arrive. Once I found my bearings in Portland, I quickly fell in love with Real Estate. As a kid, we all had a theme of Christmas ornaments, mine were always mini houses. I’ve always had an appreciation for the architectural design of homes, and the meaning of what “home” can mean to each person. My home was wherever my family was growing up, and there’s something pretty amazing about seeing a permanent space reflect the meaning of “home.”
