New Construction Dreams

By Natalie Strom, May 28, 2020

I LOVE repeat clients! What a journey to take this wonderful couple, Amanda and Sean from a little farmhouse in Foster-Powell, to a temporary housing situation to save up money to buy a sweet new construction in Reed’s Crossing in Hillsboro.

It’s been an honor to work alongside them, through thick and thin.

Congratulations!

P.S. I love homemade client gifts that come straight out of our own clay studio 🙂

Earth Advantage Broker + ADU Specialist

Nature Enthusiast. Real Estate Buff. Knitter of sweaters. Natalie approaches real estate with radical caring. Buying or selling a home is perhaps the largest transaction her clients will face, and Natalie gets it. Honest, energetic, versatile, reliable and thorough, Natalie’s instincts when it comes to real estate make her not only easy to work with, but extremely valuable when it comes to getting things done. A passion for the natural world is a cornerstone: as a former marine biologist with a specialty in mapping, research, and habitats of seabirds upon devastating effects from oil spills, Natalie now enjoys the great outdoors through her enthusiasm for hiking, backpacking, bicycling, and running. Slowing down on occasion, you might find her identifying plants, mushroom hunting or knitting sweaters. These passions become relevant in real estate when it comes to advocating for smart local development and preservation of natural areas within the City. Being an Earth Advantage Broker since 2018 means ongoing training in green building practices, keeping pace with changes in this area.
Natalie’s ongoing and thorough research in Portland’s shifting real estate market offers her clients the advantage of information in real-time conditions. Her experience in overseeing construction of an ADU (accessory dwelling unit) on her own property offers her a keen sense of what a good building looks and feels like, as well as what potential may lie in an older home in need of some fixing up. She has years of experience in owning investment properties in the Portland area and offers her clients a great referral base for repairs as well as solid understanding of the bottom line when it comes to buying or selling their own primary residence or investment property. With a solid history of handling a variety of sales with confidence, flexibility, rapid communication and skilled negotiation, she is the Realtor you will want by your side.
Natalie is loved by her large locally-based family, two school-aged boys, public school teacher husband Justin, and Tucker, the family golden doodle.
