Honey Badgers

By Jason & Kristin Anderson, October 5, 2019

I’ll never forget the smiles on Rob and Jesse’s faces when we toured this particular property. It was so refreshing to see hope blossoming in both of them after coming out of another transaction that they felt was wise to end due to repairs that were too great of a liability for them to take one. So, to see them light up again as were starting over in looking for their home made my heart happy.

Rob actually mentioned how ‘tickled’ he felt envisioning it as their home. This was a good sign.  This home in particular had just come into a price point that Rob & Jesse felt good about and when they saw it, they were ready to make a move.

The kitchen in particular was a huge highlight for them, in that it was spacious enough to cook and entertain all in the same flow. Everywhere you turned, greenery surrounded the home, making the ambience tranquil.

This Urban oasis provided a spectacular drawing board for them and their cute cats Mimi and Link. It was such a great moment to give them the good news that they were officially in contract and they could indeed start envisioning this home as their own.

One thing Kristin and I really appreciated about Rob and Jesse was how calculative and sure they were in making a decision as a unit. They made it very easy for us to work with them because they knew exactly what they wanted but were also very reasonable and a lot of fun. And they were the king and queen of analogies. Every expression, feeling or thought had an amazing analogy that helped Kristin and I truly understand where they were coming from. They made life come alive.

As they liked to say as we approached closing, “Now that the ink is dry” they could finally sail away into their elegant Urban tree house in their wooded sanctuary. We are beyond thrilled to see these honey badgers nest. Cheers to you both Rob and Jesse!

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.”
