It’s an Ice Cream Sort of Day

By Andee Zeigler, June 11, 2019

Starting the buying process in early Portland spring makes for a roller coaster of weather experiences. Sometimes you’re hustling to a door during an absolute downpour and sometimes your sweating it out on a magically hot day. Aside from the great selection of our spring inventory, this is an awesome time to get a true sense of the house in various seasons. It is helpful to see how dry a basement is on those rainy days and how hot an attic space is on those sunny days.  It usually means that it will close when the weather has started to turn to true summer heat. Like today, the thermometer read 97 degrees as I handed over keys to my sweet clients.

When a client closes on a house I often like to go over prior to giving them keys and stock their kitchen with snacks and drinks for moving day.  However, today called for more than snacks and drinks; this calls for a freezer full of ice cream and popsicles….and some chilled champagne!

I fell in love with Portland and the beauty of the homes and neighborhoods long before I moved here. I have called Portland home for nearly 20 years and can't imagine raising my babies anywhere else. I have been a Realtor for over a decade and still wake up everyday delighted that I truly love what I do and that it rarely feels like work. I love helping people find their home sweet home, be it an investment that pencils out better than expected, holding the hand of a first time home buyer or guiding a nervous seller through the process of leaving a home they once loved. I know Portland like the back of my hand and have a wealth of knowledge about our unique vintage homes and rapidly growing inventory of new construction. I have loved up many homes over the years, from a total restoration of a 1894 Victorian farmhouse to a full remodel of 1942 ranch and several in between. I enjoy educating my clients on the process, helping them keep perspective along the way and I am confident in my fierce negotiating skills. Over the years many of my clients have become my friends and I am grateful for the joy this process brings. When I am not scouring the new listings, meeting clients for pie or reading up on all things real estate, I am busy filling my days with goodness. I currently live in my dream home in St. Johns with my husband and 3 kiddos. I am an avid gardener, growing over 30 varieties of fruits and vegetables and countless plants and flowers. When I am feeling stress I find my peace in the kitchen perfecting some baked treat or trying my hand at a new savory dish. I graduated with an art degree and find great joy in painting and creating, there is almost always some art project happening at the kitchen island. I am a dedicated traveler and have made exploring the world with my babies a priority. When we aren't traveling internationally we explore our corner of the world in our Vanagon, I am almost always up for a quick forest getaway. I am in constant awe of the beauty of the PNW and feel to grateful that this is my home sweet home.
