House Hunting Adventures Gone Right

By Robin Hakeman, November 22, 2019

What happens when you aren’t from Portland? You look at homes in your price range wherever they may be! Think NE Portland, SE Portland, SW Portland, Milwaukee, Oregon City, Sherwood, Tigard, Woodburn, Canby, Gervais and Newberg. It was a whirlwind of house hunting with these two but it was nothing short of adventurous. We saw gigantic spiders, ceilings that were too short for us, tires that were taller than us, a LOT of wall paper, a little mary jane and had our first experience with an Opendoor home.

Patrick and Sarah decided on a cute Newberg ranch in a nice neighborhood, close to the aquatic center. With a little love this will be a darling home for them. They plan to put in new floors and carpet, paint the interior and remodel bathrooms before moving in. These two have big plans for their life: grad school, getting married, and owning a lot of real estate are just a few of them. They are smart and fun, easy going and kind.

It’s clients like Patrick and Sarah that remind me why I love being a Realtor®. I will adventure with you guys anytime!!!

True job love!

One of the things Robin loves most about her work in real estate is that it never feels like "work" to her. After working as a merchandise manager for some top local apparel and home brands she found her way to real estate and will never look back. She is that rare combination of business smarts meets creativity and her skills are well suited for real estate. She has the analytical background necessary to help both buyers and sellers with numbers and negotiation, as well as the creative vision to help clients best prepare their homes for sale. As a native Oregonian, Robin has lived in NW Portland and NE Portland and the SW suburbs. She has worked in areas all over the city and has seen the changes to the area over the last 10+ years. When she's not at the office or out with clients, you can find her taking a barre3 class, hiking, enjoying family time, volunteering at a school and enjoying local theater arts. Robin is passionate about understanding the needs of each client and will work hard to help you realize your goals. She is dedicated to being a complete resource for you before, during and after your home purchase or sale. One of the aspects of this process that she values the most is the relationships she builds with her clients. Buying or selling a home can be stressful and Robin is here to work though it all with you.
