In a World…

By Steve Brian, May 10, 2019

…where men are gods and gods are monsters. A hero will arise…

(Did you read that in your best movie-trailer-guy voice?)

(You didn’t?)

(Okay, do it again. It’s fun. I’ll wait.)


Superheroes are everywhere these days. Saving us from one awful and evil thing or another. The ancient Greeks would envy us our pantheon of demigods and semi-mortals we genuflect to, each with their own power or ability.

But then I guess, if they did, the Greeks would probably invent a new deity – an immortal who was the god of being jealous of the amount of other gods there were? ENVOS! Some half-son of Hermes and a mirror maybe? I don’t know, that Olympic family tree gets real twisty in places – and straight as a branchless arrow in others.)

But digression is not my superpower. Nor are segues as you may soon suspect.

What would your superpower be?

Flight, invisibility, bullet-proof? Utra-rich, mega-smart, hyper-active? Teleportation, telekinesis, televangelism?

Would you want laser beams that shoot from your eyes? From your hands? From your other places?

The ability to time-travel? The ability to read minds? The ability to fold a map correctly?

Super-strength, super-speed, super-califragilisticexpialidocious?

I’m greedy. I want them all. Does that make me sound atrocious?

Only way is to try them all one at a time. I’ll start with flight. No better place to get my air-legs than iFLY.

Now where can I find a cape?

He has worked with first time buyers, upsizers, downsizers and investors alike, priding himself on being able to provide well-informed advice based on the current market and leaving the final decisions up to his clients! After moving to Portland in 2002, Steve bounced around different neighborhoods on the Eastside of Portland and grew a love for straight shots of espresso. He has now planted roots with his family in the Terra Linda neighborhood of NW Portland and is a sucker for a delicious beer on a hot, summer day from one of the many local breweries in Portland. When he’s not wearing his “Steve the REALTOR®” hat, he likes to spend time with his wife and two boys, taking trips to OMSI, The Zoo, or just putting on some mud boots and finding trails to explore.
