Josh & Karley couldn’t be happier!

Josh & Karley couldn’t be happier!!

Their needs for a first home were simple. A solid, minimum two bedroom, one bath home, in a good neighborhood. One that will have solid resale value in a couple of years when they are ready to move up to their next home.

Josh really doesn’t like the city, especially the Portland, Vancouver area so we set our search further north. Our search eventually landing us Longview. We were able to find them a sweet house, a few blocks from the lake that has a number of recent updates but still room for Josh to add some sweat equity.

With a strong offer, some persistent negotiation, and a good lender we were closed in less than 30 days!

As you can see, Josh & Karley couldn’t be happier.

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.
