Home Sweet Home in Argay Terrace

By Lisa Avena, July 6, 2022

I couldn’t be happier for this sweet family who finally got the keys to their new home tonight! I met Emily and Adam 6 years ago when I helped them find their first home. Fast forward 6 years, and they reached out late last fall as their family was growing with baby Otto on the way. They were about 6 months pregnant at the time. They had outgrown their first home and we needed to find them a new place to call home ASAP. I was able to sell their home quickly with multiple offers and favorable terms including a generous rent back period, however, finding their new home was proving a difficult task with such historically low levels of inventory. They opted for a short term rental to have a landing spot as they prepared to welcome baby Otto. Our home search took a brief break after the baby arrived, but we picked up again rather quickly. They scored on this sweet Argay Terrace mid century ranch. Their patience and tenacity pain off and they now have a beautiful home that’s perfect for them. Wishing them many happy years of memory making in their new home.

Also, huge shout out to my friend and colleague, Katherine Millan who was a vital part of helping Emily and Adam with their home search and throughout the process. Teamwork makes the dream work and I couldn’t have asked for anyone better to help care for my clients.

Searching for a place to finally lay down roots and to call home, I moved to Oregon with my family over a decade ago. Arriving in Portland, we instantly fell in love with the vibrant neighborhoods, older homes, walkability, and amazing local music scene. We knew immediately that we had finally found our home. We settled down in inner SE where we’ve lived ever since. While in California, I attended UC Davis where I earned a bachelors degree in Sociology and went on to work in social services for over five years, before I began a full time career raising my three daughters and giving back to my community. Some of my volunteer commitments have included serving on several non-profit boards, working as the volunteer outreach coordinator for The Rock ‘n’ Roll Camp for Girls, and helping to coordinate fundraising events and develop community partners for local radio station KZME. As a REALTOR®, I am absolutely committed to helping my clients not only find the perfect house, but also the right community for them to call home. I take great pride in the level of service I provide. This begins with educating my clients about the process of buying or selling a home, knowing current market conditions, representing their interest and serving as their trusted advisor/negotiator throughout the entire real estate transaction and beyond. As a REALTOR®, I’ve been able to combine my passions of helping people, building community and my love for the places we call home.  Please let me know how I can help you!
