Mission Impossible 

By Drew Burchette, April 10, 2020

I got the initial call from Hayla and Jeff on a Saturday afternoon in early March: they had finally found the dream house! They had been casually looking for the perfect house for a few years and this one checked just about every box. There was just one tiny little problem: they had to sell their house first, it wasn’t on the market yet and it appeared that the dream house was going to get a couple of offers. I guess that was three problems. DANG IT!!

We talked it through and found a way to make the purchase without a contingent offer. Then the other offer(s) didn’t quite materialize. This was all happening with the backdrop of the early COVID closures and questions; I’m certain there were sleepless nights all around.

We plodded our way through inspections. The buyers navigated a very complex lending process. We assembled all the moving pieces. Then…I just got the call…the sale is closed and I can pass off the keys. Wow. That was crazy. The mission was impossible, but we got it done!

Principal Broker

I arrived in the real estate business over a decade ago and have since helped scores of people buy and sell their homes. The groundswell that I created in my practice is rooted in the relationships that I have nurtured over the years. My style is educational, and I see myself as the coach and leader of your real estate transaction. My coaching is geared towards empowering you to make informed decisions that will lead to your best possible outcome. I excel at asking the questions that get to the heart of the matter which in turn enables a smooth sale process. Away from the office I am passionate about so many things, but it all begins and ends with my family. My boys are both in elementary school and parenting is an ongoing challenge and joy for my wife and I. We love to travel around Oregon, the East Coast, Mexico and beyond. My passion for surfing, kiteboarding, and fishing help to keep me grounded in life. Read more reviews
