Newlyweds’ First offer accepted in St Helen’s!

By Savanna Ray, October 27, 2021

Brent and Leann came to me wanting a fresh new start. They had lived in Portland for many many years and were ready for that small-town feeling. They were also ready for home ownership and felt like they could get more for their money looking outside of Portland. On only our second trip out looking at homes we found this house. It had everything that was important to them: a great working kitchen with lots of counter space, a neighborhood in which to walk their dogs, a fenced yard and enough space for them to work from home…and of course room for their beloved dogs.

The sale of this home was contingent on the sellers finding a replacement property. That potentially made it a little bit more difficult for other buyers who weren’t as flexible so it had been on the market for a couple of weeks. We went in at a full-price offer and our offer was accepted! No back and forth, no other offers to compete with, just a whole lot of potential waiting to move into the home, which Brent and Leann were ok with. That is a real win in this market for buyers.

Brent and Leann just celebrated their 1st wedding anniversary and were hoping to be in the home in time to celebrate. Unfortunately the sellers took a little longer than expected to find a replacement home. The good news is that they have their entire lives ahead of them in their dream home to celebrate all life’s gifts. Congratulations and happy anniversary, lovebirds!

Growing up in Oregon I have a distinct love for where we live that is uniquely and proudly Pacific Northwest. I have lived in nearly every neighborhood in the city and beyond. Before getting into real estate, I spent 20 years providing the highest-end service as a sommelier in some of the finest Portland restaurants as well as managing a world-class winery in the Willamette Valley. This is where my passion for the finest service began. When I was young, my parents were constantly looking at property and I absolutely loved when they would take me on home tours and to open houses. Furthermore, my architect step-father has helped me hone my eye for design. As someone who understands what the finest service means, I put all of this experience together creating a space for my clients to really be heard. I am dedicated to being an advocate for my clients no just by winning them the best price possible but understanding their goals.  I am an active member of my community; I have sat on the board of the International Pinot Noir Celebration as well as have volunteered for the event for the last 15 years. I am passionate about equal rights and the environment. In my spare time I love camping and hiking with my husband JT, five year-old son Wilder, and--the newest addition to our family--our new cocker spaniel puppy Betty White.
