Barb & Josh are some of our favorite people to work with. We recently sold their home and have been looking for months for their perfect new home they could call their own. Low and behold the home that was a near perfect blend of what they both envisioned came on the market.  By day 1 we got in the home, and Josh & Barb knew it had to be theirs. So, we submitted our offer that day in the hopes to take it off the market before the sellers’ scheduled open houses that weekend.  Our offer was above list price, but soon we felt the flurry of other offers coming on the table and suddenly we found ourselves sinking from the top place.  Barb & Josh are wise and they knew the offer they submitted was their highest and best so they knew they had to pull some heart strings to get the sellers to choose theirs. Barb has what we call the magic touch for a seller letters, and her words were truly heart felt and convincing.  That evening minutes before our offer expired, I received an accepted offer in my inbox along with a call from the listing agent congratulating us on our excellent presentation and killer letter.  My face lit up with job to be able to deliver such amazing news.  Barb & Josh were so relieved that they would have their new home days before both of their birthdays.

During our inspection people were still trying to view the property thinking it was still on the market because of how hot the property was, which sealed the fact that we were so blessed to have them in contract on this amazing home. Another victory was that we were able to negotiate a substantial credit for Josh & Barb.  Barb & Josh stood their ground and asked for what they believed was fair.  Time and time again I have seen good things happen to this pair and they were able to get a beautiful home with fair terms.  Our hearts are so full today because it’s finally key delivering day, and we get to finally hand them a long awaited token of joy from all their hard work.



We love you Barb, Josh & Parker and are so excited to see what new adventures you both will continue to have together.

We are a dedicated husband and wife real estate team with a diverse upbringing & an appreciation for local & international backgrounds. What Jason & I love most about Real Estate is making those deep connections with our clients by listening to their goals and serving as their guides through their home sale/purchase journey. We stand by our 3 principles to keep things:
  1. Simple
  2. Stress Free
  3. You Get the Best Deal in the Least Amount of Time
Jason: I am a rugged Jamaican/Oregonian who loves nature and the city. My family immigrated to the US when I was 13 and ever since then Oregon has become my home as well as my adventure playground. When I am not fighting hard for my clients as their guide in this ever evolving Real Estate Market, I am an avid surfer and snowboarder. All year round I have been blessed to find some of Oregon's best set ups for waves. There's nothing quite like Oregon's sandy coastline that brings in a wide range of waves. During deep of winter, you can find me taking breaks from laps at Timberline lodge with a good IPA in hand. For those powder days I make sure to head to Meadows or Skibowl with my snorkel so I stay afloat. Aside from my love of high adrenaline sports, I have a deep passion for interior & exterior plantscaping/gardening. Along with gardening I love learning about bees and their pivotal role in the world. I received my Master bee Keeping Apprentice and have been fascinated with them ever since. I love sharing life with out clients and showcasing Oregon's gorgeous neighborhoods, landscape, its abundant activities and never ending delicious eateries. Kristin & I work hard to help our clients have an amazing journey in the sale/purchase of their home. This is a huge decision for our clients and we don't take our role lightly. Our goal is to be your realtor for life and bring a smile to your face at the end of each and every transaction. Kristin: I was born in Jamaica, grew up in the Philippines & raised by American parents who now live in Chaing Rai, Thailand. About 6 years ago, I was in Thailand visiting family and was trying to figure out what was the next adventure I wanted to go on. I pulled up my laptop and typed in Google: “Where to live in America that is near the ocean, mountains, and has great public transportation.” Portland, OR kept popping up. So, I bought myself a one way ticket and haven’t regretted it since. I have been a nomad for most of my life, living in 7 countries and traveling through 25. Portland has continued to keep me planted due to its magnetic force that brings people from all over the country & the world together; great food, creative cocktails, & beautiful landscape. Some cities have a way of making you feel swallowed up, Portland has a magical way of making you feel at home from the minute you arrive. Once I found my bearings in Portland, I quickly fell in love with Real Estate. As a kid, we all had a theme of Christmas ornaments, mine were always mini houses. I’ve always had an appreciation for the architectural design of homes, and the meaning of what “home” can mean to each person. My home was wherever my family was growing up, and there’s something pretty amazing about seeing a permanent space reflect the meaning of “home.”
