New Beginnings .

By Stacy Stokes, September 27, 2019

I met Casia just over a month ago. It was her first day in Portland. She moved here for a job and was trying to decide whether to rent or buy. I was immediately drawn to her spirit, determination, intelligence and warmth. Casia quickly narrowed her search down to specific neighborhoods, which is not always an easy task given the abundance of options in Portland, and house type. This really expedited the search.

After a few weeks of looking, Casia send me a listing and asked to see it ASAP. She had a feeling it was “the one”. We toured the house that evening, which only confirmed her belief. As soon as we left the house, Casia and I sat down to write up a strong offer. The offer was accepted and she moved quickly toward closing. As of today, Casia owns a house in Portland. She is such a great addition to our community. Welcome to Portland!

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.
