Patiences pays off! Cabin Dreams come true on Mt Hood

By Cristen Lincoln, May 24, 2018

It took a year and a half of searching, and lots of patience for Robin and Greg to find this gem up on Mt. Hood. Even though they are the official and proud owners as of today, they are still putting that patience into practice, waiting for the sellers to close on their purchase and pack and move. But, it will only be a few more days of waiting and they can have the key! Their new, cozy, cabin rests in a picturesque woodland setting with big old evergreens, ferns and vine maples. They’ll enjoy it from the deck in the summer, and from their wall of windows in the winter that grace the open living room, kitchen and dining room. It’s such a joy to be up on the mountain, and we had fun trips out to see houses! Mix in a little paddle boarding and a few hikes, and I’m kind of sad the hunt is over. I’m so happy for them though! If you have ever thought about owning a second home retreat, I’d love to talk to you about it! Give me, Cristen Lincoln, a call at 503-260-2414. We can find you a great get-a-way and have some fun doing it!

Earth Advantage Broker & 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
