Persistence pays off

By Martin Cross, May 25, 2023

Their journey was not unfamiliar to buyers here in Portland where housing inventory remains at an all time low. But, persistence pays off! Like many buyers, their road involved getting into contract twice, backup position once, needing to terminate contracts twice and even taking a couple of breaks from shopping when things got too disappointing. But, determined, they kept returning to the game, and guess what? We finally found the one!

It’s a reminder that sometimes you have to take a step back and take a break to let the universe guide you to what you’re meant to have. I couldn’t be more thrilled for them!

If you, or someone you know is looking to buy or sell a home, multifamily property or land in Oregon or Washington please let me help you on your journey!

I have lived in Portland my entire life and spent the last 20 years in the Creston-Kenilworth neighborhood of SE Portland. As such, I know inner SE like the back of my hand and I am very familiar with most neighborhoods in the Portland metro area. After almost 25 years filling people's homes with great design and art I shifted my love of finding great things, for great people, towards Real Estate. My eye for quality and attention to detail serves both my buyers and sellers equally. As a business owner most of my life, I understand the concepts of problem solving, coordination with others, and hard work. I always say..."Great things rarely come from a 40 hour work week." If you want a Portland native who is hard working, responsive, and compassionate - give me a call. I look forward to working with you to find that perfect home or that perfect buyer for yours whether the house be Craftsmen, Modern, brand new, or a fixer.
