New House, New Beginnings

By Stacy Stokes, October 19, 2020

It was such a pleasure helping my client, Leta, find the first house she has purchased on her own. She was looking for a house that was move-in ready and near her kid’s school. As a chef, the kitchen and outdoor space for classes were both very important to her. She also needed a great space for her boys. To add to the challenge, she was on a very tight timeframe. Given Portland’s crazy real estate market, this was a tall order. However, we found the perfect place. With a few small changes, Leta will have the chef’s kitchen that she needs, the perfect covered patio to teach clinics on and an entire upstairs to dedicate to the boys. I am so pleased for her and am sure this will be the perfect place to begin the next chapter of her life!

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.
