Riverside Livin’ for First Time Buyers

By Gabrielle Enfield, July 15, 2019


Brianna and Sean found me through my online reviews (thanks, clients!) and decided we made a great team for their first time home purchase. They are both busy young professionals, who were recently married and excited to start the next chapter in their lives. After reviewing their pre-approval, we worked together to narrow down the scope of their preferred home, whether it was a detached single family, or an attached condo or townhouse.

Together we put together a list of must-haves — great kitchen for entertaining, a deck (view preferred), room for a home office and two generous bathrooms with showers so they could get ready in the mornings hassle-free. They went
out on the open house circuit for a few weekends to tour at their leisure and came back with feedback. After seeing a unit that was available in the Riverscape Townhomes, they felt like they’d found the one.

They were right! We were able to get a below-asking offer accepted because of their other strong terms. Now, they are packing up and moving in to their beautiful riverside home. Congratulations, S + B! Thanks for your trust and partnership.

Are you interested in looking into the condo or townhome market? Give a call — it’s a great time to buy.

Till then, high fives,

After spending 20 years in marketing and communications – ranging from anchoring the local TV news to leading teams for some of the world’s beloved brands, including Xbox and Dave’s Killer Bread – I finally listened to the universe’s prompts to become a real estate broker. Since, I've consistently delivered results and happiness and according to my clients, a 5-star experience along the way. Working in real estate in one of the nation's hottest markets, I understand the important decision of choosing an agent. My goal is to apply my myriad experiences, both personally and professionally, to help guide my clients through a thoughtful, strategic, seamless and fun journey. Need staging help? I can do that. Looking to purchase a vacation property and need it to generate rental income? Roger. Are you a first-time buyer who needs a steady hand to help guide you through the real estate process? I've got you covered. Moving to PDX and need a proxy to get to know Rose City? Let's do this. I'm a PacNW native and proud resident of North Portland, where I'm raising my family. I was practically born with a tool belt on: my Dad is a retired custom designer and builder, my uncle is an architect and my Grandpa was a Realtor and developer. I am an active listener, have a keen eye for "good bones",  and solving my client's real estate needs in a creative and often unexpected way brings me joy. Plus, the lasting relationships formed are cherries on the sundae! Please give me a call - I'd love to see what it would be like to partner with you.
