Perrrrrrfect Hillsboro Home- MEOW!

By Tracey Henkels, May 10, 2019

Congratulations to our delightful first time home buyers!

Emmalisa and Zack were great clients- pragmatic, researched, smart cookies and avid cat lovers. I didn’t think anyone loved cats more than I did! Zack even advised Jasmine on the perrrrfect cat for her daughter who has a history of cat allergies. What a dream to work with!

We looked at many houses in the Hillsboro/Beaverton area. There were some great houses that went pending before we could even get in the door and some not so great houses that we walked away from. At last, a 4 bedroom gem-of-a-house pulled at their heartstrings and became ‘the one’. It felt like home right away!

A quick, smooth, and friendly transaction made their dreams come true and I wish them all the best in their new home!

Earth Advantage Principal Broker

Tracey Henkels attributes her disciplined nature and relentless work ethic and to a childhood spent rising and retiring by the light of the sun, on her family’s apple orchard in Iowa. Gratefully, that Midwestern mentality has served her well over the years, and Tracey continues to deliver excellent customer service, superior technical skill, and a wide array of industry knowledge both directly and on behalf of her clients. While Tracey wouldn’t trade her career as a Real Estate broker for any other, her first love was actually Architecture, a craft she studied at Iowa State University during her undergraduate years. After receiving her degree, Tracey worked as an Architect for over 6 years before deciding she wanted to forge a new professional path. In 2004, Tracey jumped heart-first into the world of buying and selling houses, and is proud to say, she’s never looked back.   When you meet Tracey, one of the first things you notice is her positive energy, and zest for life. One of her favorite things about being a broker is the ability to help people make powerful transitions in their lives. Tracey’s natural patience, unwavering professionalism, and optimistic attitude make her a both a compassionate broker, and tough negotiator. Tracey is committed to serving others, being involved in her community, and giving back. When she isn’t working hard to best serve her clients, you might find her tending to her garden, growing fresh vegetables, exotic plants, and beautiful flowers, apprenticing a professional woodworker making fine furniture, or planning her next exciting adventure with her wife, Bernadette.
