Prepare yourself, it may take months to get into contract!

By Martin Cross, June 25, 2021

It may take months, or not! Natalie, the daughter of a friend of mine, came to me to help her buy a house. I gave her all of the usual education I offer home buyers as well as my more current, “patience is required in this insane market we live in” speech.

Or not. We looked at three houses, made an offer on the third, and we’re in contract a few days after we met for the first time. 30 days later, Natalie is a homeowner. 1, 2, 3 lickety-split!

He/Him

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.
