One Block At A Time

By Leanne Bach, September 1, 2021

It was very important for Daniel to find a house close to the one he just moved out of. He’s a dear friend of mine, as is his immediate family. His needs were similar to what mine are. I live within very close proximity of my ex, who is the father of my child. It’s important to us. We are pretty much best friends and we like to be close because it makes things easy for our child to go back and forth and I like how it extends our household.

Just last year we were looking for a house for Daniel’s mother in law, and we were dumbfounded at how cool it was that she’d be a mere “few houses down,” when we found it! Now Daniel (and Julia’s) son could run back and forth to his grandma’s house. We joked about finding another one on the block and just taking it over. That’s how much they love the neighborhood, ha ha!

Well, life happens and I was called again to help find another home. Would we be able to get lucky again, in this competitive market, in one of the hottest neighborhoods in Portland? We did. Daniel scored. We barely had any competition. It was just perfect summer timing. It’ll be a little love triangle, but not the one you’re thinking. 3 houses, the path to each creating a triangle built from a family that loves and respects one another. They may not own the whole block, but they sure are assets to the neighborhood. I wish them all the best.
