Navigating Turbulence

By Stacy Stokes, November 23, 2020

Transactions can be full of bumps on the way toward closing. One of my coworkers told me that as a real estate broker, he feels like a pilot flying the plane safely to landing. Some flights may be smooth, but more often than not, there is turbulence along the way. The job of the agent is to navigate the plane through the turbulence and make the trip as smooth as possible for the client. I really like this analogy, especially since my grandpa was a pilot, and found it very fitting for the sale of SW Upper Aldercrest. From a low appraisal, to difficulty with completing repairs, this transaction took the cooperation of the seller, buyer and real estate agents. Everyone continued the journey determined to land the plane. With the cooperating agent as my copilot, we navigated a bumpy ride and landed the plane successfully. When you do hit turbulence, it really pays off to have expertise and experience to get you safely to your final destination.

She/Her

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.
