Just Sold! A Stroke of Luck in Alberta (Part 1)

By Ross Seligman, February 12, 2021

Sometimes life has weird coincidences. Maybe you see a person you were just talking about. Or you get a call from someone at the exact time you started thinking about them. Life can be very random. But what if you find the perfect house not once, but twice over? Nina and Sandra are sisters who’d been wanting to find a duplex-style home to move their families into. They’d decided to raise their children a door apart, and were willing to extend that to walking distance if need be. But lo and behold, two houses came on the market in the Alberta neighborhood at the exact same time that were perfect. And they were just across the street from each other! Now both families will be able to grow up together just a street away. Sometimes it just takes a little stroke of luck. We’re proud to have helped Nina and Sandra manifest their goal. Coincidence? Maybe. But it’s a pretty happy one. Congratulations to you and both your families!

Ross Seligman moved to Portland in 1999 after accidentally discovering this oasis of a city in a nationwide desert of strip malls and sprawl. Ross likes to call Portland the "land of opportunity." Why, you ask? Where else can you be a successful real estate broker while simultaneously leading a double life as a musician? That would definitely be a bizarre combination in New Jersey but, in Portland, quite ordinary. In Portland, one expects that their straight-laced accountant is secretly oil painting between Yoga classes. From the moment he arrived in Portland, Ross quickly fell in love with the vibrant energy of the people, gorgeous homes and neighborhoods, and exploding arts scene. Deciding to embrace it all, Ross became an active real estate broker and quickly immersed himself in the city culture. Working with premier Portland boutique company Living Room Realty, Ross is well known for his accessibility, integrity, professionalism, knowledge of the market, and passion for Portland. When he is not busy representing clients or studying market trends, you can find Ross playing music around the city, hiking and camping in the unparalleled beauty of the Pacific NW, and spending as much time with friends and family as possible. Ross Seligman also appeared on Broadway at the Lyceum Theater in NYC as Janis Joplin's guitarist in "A Night With Janis Joplin".
