New home and studio for Roger

By Cristen Lincoln, November 22, 2019

Floral artist extraordinaire Roger needed new digs to create his work. His long time rental was being sold, and it was particularly stressful since he works out of his garage. He was losing his home and studio! So, the hunt for a new garage was on. He hoped the house attached to it would be pleasant as well. With patience, and determination, we found him the perfect garage-house combo. A big double garage with lots of windows and light, attached to an adorable 50’s home with original cabinets, wood floors and vintage hardware. The fenced yard for his beloved lab was the icing on the top. Moving your home and place of work all at once is a big job, and being able to help Roger navigate all those changes has been incredibly rewarding. We were so pleased to work with Roger, and help him find his right place.

Broker in Oregon & Business Development

I’ve been a full time realtor since 1993, and after more than 25 years in the business and thousands of transactions under my belt, I still love it!  At Living Room Realty I facilitate individual agents' business development, am a member of the Broker Advisory Group which provides direction for the company, and lead a Roommates group which allows agents to share ideas for improving their business practices. I feel very fortunate to come to work every day and do what I love. I grew up here in SE Portland, attended our neighborhood schools and live just five minutes from my childhood home. I never even thought about moving away. I love to travel, but Portland is my home. When I’m not working, I enjoy volunteering at my kids’ schools. I’m known for throwing an epic class party! Before I had kids, I never knew I’d also enjoy being a “soccer Mom” as much as I do. When I have a free moment, I love to hop on my bike and ride down to the waterfront from Mt. Tabor where I live. Biking through the neighborhoods is a nice way to stay in touch with the city, and also stay in shape! When I feel like I want more of a challenge, I’ll add the climb up Mt. Tabor. It’s good ride with the reward being the view from the top of the park. Besides Portland, my family’s second home in Central Oregon is my favorite place. We escape there every chance we get, and love to explore the endless hiking trails, lakes, rivers and other natural wonders the high desert has to offer. Snowboarding on Bachelor is at the top of our winter activities list. We just love nature. Our two dogs love it too, and we take them almost everywhere with us! I’m an avid gardener. Meandering through Portland Nursery, even if I don’t buy anything, almost feels like a mini vacation. My Mom taught me a lot about tending a garden, but I also might have gotten my interest in gardening from my ancestors who were among the first settlers of Sauvie Island. My maiden name is Charlton, and a few of us still live and work there. There’s even a road named after my family. The kids think that’s pretty cool. My family has deep roots in Portland. I’m a true Oregon native, local SE girl, Mom and business woman. And, I’m passionate about working in the city and neighborhoods that I love. ADDITIONAL AWARDS & AFFILIATIONS
