The perfect mix of elegance & efficiency in the heart of Goose Hollow. This charming home features recently refinished hardwood floors, pine kitchen floors, new custom window blinds, fresh paint, radiant heat, & an abundance of built-in storage. Onsite laundry and bike storage. Only a block from public transport and close proximity to the Alphabet, Cultural and Pearl districts, makes this a perfect place to enjoy local shopping and dining. Built in 1928, the Hamilton Arms Condominiums is a part of Portland’s storied history and elegance. Converted to condominiums in 2005, this 5-story building combines elegant historic elements with modern convenience. Located in the Goose Hollow neighborhood, and blocks away from premiere shopping, dining and transportation. Catch a Timbers game at Providence Park, walk to museums or theatre in the Cultural District or enjoy shopping or dining in the Pearl District, NW 23rd or downtown. Freeways and the Portland streetcar are nearby, and you’re right on the MAX and bus lines, getting to where you need to go is easy and convenient.
Congrats to my client Judy on the sale of her adorable condo at the Historic Hamilton Arms Condominiums. It was a pleasure working with my colleagues Cristen Lincoln, Quinlin Langford and the rest of their Team, who brought the Buyers on this one. Their ability to be able to put together a deal and navigate some bumps in the road, were just what this needed to see it to conclusion. I truly hope their Buyer’s are happy with the end result and are able to enjoy this wonderful spot in the city.

Hello! My name is Scott Shoji and I am a licensed Oregon Real Estate Broker. I began my journey into Real Estate in 2005 specializing in new development mixed-use buildings & condos in Portland’s urban core. I was part of the sales teams for the Eliot Tower and The Westerly while at Debbie Thomas Real Estate, gaining first-hand knowledge of how a high-rise building is constructed from the ground up. Seeing all phases of the design, build, and sales process for condominium development helped frame my knowledge of the condo market. I am very familiar with most condo buildings in Portland and have published extensive market research on them for years. Before joining Living Room Realty, I worked with a top producing team that eventually became a boutique brokerage based out of the South Waterfront. This opportunity allowed me to expand my knowledge of not only the residential buildings in the area, but the ethos and vision of the community. I unequivocally loved being a condo owner and living in the heart of Downtown Portland where I took advantage of walking to farmers’ markets, concerts, festivals and food carts. Now living in a single-family home in the west-side suburbs of Portland, I enjoy watching my daughter ride her bike and my wife attempt to weed our garden. I feel like I can truly speak to the different experiences that each can offer and relate to buyers and sellers no matter what lifestyle they choose. I am a California transplant, having trekked North to earn degrees in English Literature & Business at the University of Oregon. (Go Ducks!) I have lived in Oregon on and off since 1996 and permanently made Portland my home in 2005. It is the love of this city that has welcomed me into its quirky arms that fuels my desire to help others find the same. Why Portland? The seasons! Leaves changing colors, the crisp winter air, lush green forests that convince you of another adventure. A thriving food scene where every other corner celebrates an up-and-coming chef, barista, or brewer. There is something so very accessible about Portland that charms and endears me. It feels intimate and easily accessed for a “big“ city. Where walking and cycling are embraced as popular modes of transportation and you are a short drive from the ocean, mountains, rivers and forests. What are you doing in your free time? You can usually find me artfully dodging or skillfully kicking rubber balls in my adult Dodgeball and Kickball leagues. I try and keep youthful at heart and these leagues help with that. Otherwise, I can be found tackling my untamable garden, improving my photography skills, or hiking the Pacific Northwest with my wife, Chelsea, and daughter, Elora and son, Auryn. Favorite Place Traveled To? This is probably a tie between Mürren, Switzerland, a picturesque mountain town deep in the Swiss Alps where I proposed to my wife, or Cambodia, where I experienced one of the most vibrant cultures traveling with my brother and sister. What can always be found close to you? A cup of black coffee and my computer. Why Real Estate? I have always loved the feeling of home. It is both a sense of place and a feeling of comfort. I find immense enjoyment in being able to help people find their home, whether that is handing over the keys to that very first home purchase, or helping someone take the next steps in life by selling the place that memories were made in. Not many careers can give that sense of satisfaction at the end of the day.
