Just Sold, Room with a View

By Stacy Stokes, April 13, 2021

I would say that I am happy for the sale of my client’s house on S. Springwater Road in Estacada, but I know that this sale was bittersweet for them. I got to know Shawn and Christina three years ago when I helped them with the purchase of their home. We looked at homes in Washington and in rural areas outside of Portland. I remember the day that we found this house. There was a storm in Portland that day. This created extra stress for Shawn and Christina as they were in town for a week and were on a mission to find the perfect place before flying back home. Despite the icy and snowy roads, we made our way to Estacada to see S. Springwater. We approached an enormous front door. As we entered the house, we were greeted with sunlight beaming through the floor to ceiling windows. And then, as Shawn and Christina took in the view out those windows, I could see on their faces that this was going to be their new home.

I know they have loved this house like no other. It is apparent in the letter they wrote to the new buyer about the amazing sunrises, about the deer and birds who visit often, about seeing Mount Hood while drinking their morning coffee. However, life sometimes has different plans for us. For reasons beyond their control, my clients needed to move again closer to family. Shawn and Christina sent me a photo of their next house. It looks amazing as well. I’m sad to see them leave the Portland area and sorry they could not continue to enjoy everything S. Springwater has to offer. I am excited for them to begin the next chapter of their lives and feel so grateful to have been the one they choose to help them with their journey.

I love Portland! It’s such a smart and accessible city. After moving here in 1996 to begin law school, I soon decided that there was nowhere else I would rather live. Finding a fit here in all aspects of life has been easy. My number one love is spending time with my two kids, Jake (9 yr old) and Hanna (12 yr old), my dog, K2 who is a Havanese, and cat, Tiga. Beyond that, you can find me cycling, rock climbing, running, hiking, skiing, volunteering in the community or exploring new corners of the city and new restaurants with my friends. I am always excited to show visitors the unique and funky neighborhoods Portland has to offer. I am especially drawn to the various architecture and offerings of the close-in east side and west side neighborhoods. After 3 years as an attorney/public defender, I came to the realization that Real Estate was the place for me. It allows me to constantly share the love I have for Portland’s houses and communities as well as to use my talent for helping others. Although, I’m a seasoned real estate broker, I believe that my background as an attorney has provided an invaluable platform off which to build my career. I have a firm understanding of what it means to put my client’s interests first, the art of negotiation and various contractual issues that arise in real estate transactions. Aside from these strengths, I realize that when buying a house it’s not just about finding the best structural fit but also finding the best lifestyle and neighborhood fit for you. I will listen to and truly understand your needs, find you the right home and close the deal to your satisfaction. Throughout the process, I will educate, advise and steadily guide you through what can often be an emotional and challenging time. In the end, my goal is that you have many years of happiness and peace knowing you’re in the best home and best community for you.
