Blog Stories I Don't Love Fall.

I Don’t Love Fall.

By Martin Cross, October 15, 2019

I know it’s an unpopular opinion but I simply don’t love fall. Sure, I love the beautiful changing of the leaves, the contrast of the cold crisp mornings with the warm afternoons, when the air feels so clean and the skies are so clear. I love watching nature take it’s next step in the cycle of life. I like harvest time and the feeling of bringing in the last of the vegetables from my summer garden.  But I still don’t LOVE fall. I don’t like the cold mornings, the bundling up, the need to layer on the clothes and jackets and most of all I don’t like the shorter, darker days that signal that winter is coming. Winter in Oregon. Bleh. I’ve been here my whole life and even though I know all the benefits, the cold, wet days of winter just grind on me now. I don’t like the cold. I don’t like the rain. But most of all, I really can’t stand the ever present grey smear that coats our skies from November until April.

I love Oregon, but I don’t love fall.

I have lived in Portland my entire life and spent the last 20 years in the Creston-Kenilworth neighborhood of SE Portland. As such, I know inner SE like the back of my hand and I am very familiar with most neighborhoods in the Portland metro area. After almost 25 years filling people's homes with great design and art I shifted my love of finding great things, for great people, towards Real Estate. My eye for quality and attention to detail serves both my buyers and sellers equally. As a business owner most of my life, I understand the concepts of problem solving, coordination with others, and hard work. I always say..."Great things rarely come from a 40 hour work week." If you want a Portland native who is hard working, responsive, and compassionate - give me a call. I look forward to working with you to find that perfect home or that perfect buyer for yours whether the house be Craftsmen, Modern, brand new, or a fixer.
