Kickin’ It in Kenton

By Shannon Dooley, July 24, 2019

Living in Kenton is just dreamy and these summer days are just making it better! Kenton has an open urban feel that fulfills your needs without having to leave the neighborhood. Spend your weekends with a walk through one of the many parks, chatting with neighbors strolling by as you work in the yard, or meeting up with friends for some food or drinks at the many awesome coffee shops, restaurants and bars. It’s really a fabulous place to be.

My recent client decided that after 16 years in Overlook she’d fallen for Kenton – so off we went! We looked at houses too large and too small and found the Goldilocks dream home in almost no time at all! A cute as a button 1920s Cape Cod. The homes in Kenton are varied in style and age; there are some incredible time capsules, a quiet basement bar movement, and some seriously intense urban gardens.

If you haven’t been to Kenton for awhile maybe it’s time to check it out!

Earth Advantage Broker and ADU Specialist Licensed in OR & WA

Shannon grew up in a real estate family, and as a third generation Realtor it seems that it is actually in her DNA. She spent 18 years working in public service both as a Medic and a City of Portland 9-1-1 Dispatcher, but real estate has always been her passion. Her first investment in Portland area real estate was in 2003 and she has been actively watching and participating in the market since. She believes owning real estate is empowering and wants to see as many people own homes as possible. Shannon’s commitment to honesty and ethical practice is evident to her clients and has earned her the Five Star Professional Rising Star award two years running. As an Earth Advantage Broker and ADU specialist Shannon is happy to talk your ear off about the possibilities that exist and help you determine the route that best suits your real estate goals. When working with clients she always put their best interest first: * Sellers, she will market your home to the largest pool of buyers possible using professional networks and Living Room Realty’s comprehensive marketing. * Buyers, she loves helping you find new homes and working collaboratively with other agents to ensure a positive experience. * First Time Home Buyers, you hold a special place in Shannon’s heart. She takes great pride in taking time to explain the process so you never feel lost and (little secret) she still gets a little teary eyed when she hands over those keys. * Real Estate Investors, she wants to help you build your portfolio. Whether it’s your first investment property or your fifteenth, regardless of the complexity, she’ll have it under control. Having lived in many of Portland’s neighborhoods, Shannon found herself in love with North Portland where she has settled with her husband Craig, their two dogs Arnold and Spencer, and the worlds most talkative cat John Meowkovich. Craig is a licensed home inspector and general contractor by day, but the two of them are always taking on some sort of creative life endeavor. They have started a food truck, purchased and developed a small farm, written and illustrated a children’s book, etc. I think the kids these days would say they, “Can’t stop, won’t stop.” They have a daughter who is currently traveling Europe for several months with her girlfriend – this brings them incredible joy. Shannon loves traveling, meeting new people, attempting to keep house plants alive, exploring Portland neighborhoods, and supporting local businesses.
