When you need a friend… In Washington!

By Martin Cross, March 20, 2018

Tristan and Elke found their way to me through another REALTOR® who needed someone to help them buy a house in Vancouver. They were hoping to find a place that wasn’t going to require a lot of work. Someplace truly move in ready but that also had fairly separated living spaces so they could occupy the home together yet not step all over each. They had been searching in Portland and hadn’t quite found the right place so they expanded their search into Washington.
Shortly after, they happened upon a recently well done remodel. It has a living room big enough to entertain guests together, a freshly redone kitchen, a nice big yard for Elke to get dirty in and plenty of space for one of them to have a bedroom upstairs and the other to create their own haven downstairs. Just four short weeks, start to finish and they are moved in and getting settled.
So remember, when you need a friend in Washington. I’m a Broker licensed in Oregon and Washington!

I have lived in Portland my entire life and spent the last 20 years in the Creston-Kenilworth neighborhood of SE Portland. As such, I know inner SE like the back of my hand and I am very familiar with most neighborhoods in the Portland metro area. After almost 25 years filling people's homes with great design and art I shifted my love of finding great things, for great people, towards Real Estate. My eye for quality and attention to detail serves both my buyers and sellers equally. As a business owner most of my life, I understand the concepts of problem solving, coordination with others, and hard work. I always say..."Great things rarely come from a 40 hour work week." If you want a Portland native who is hard working, responsive, and compassionate - give me a call. I look forward to working with you to find that perfect home or that perfect buyer for yours whether the house be Craftsmen, Modern, brand new, or a fixer.
