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,

Real estate can be a wild ride. It's important you find your wingwoman.

I understand the important decision of choosing an agent. It's a relationship for the long haul. My goal is to apply my myriad experiences, both personally and professionally, to help guide my client partners through a thoughtful, strategic, seamless and fun journey. Need an understanding of where to start, when it comes to getting ready to sell? I'll put my background in project management to work and let you know what needs to happen, complete with spreadsheets, if you're into it. Looking to purchase a vacation property and need it to generate rental income? I'll sharpen my pencil and make sure the numbers make sense. First-timer who needs a steady hand to help guide you through the real estate process? This Mama Bear's got you covered, and will be sure to point out what you need to look for. Moving to PDX and need a proxy to get to know Rose City? I'm a Pac NW native, and even with all its growth and change, this place still gives me butterflies. I grew up in Woodland, Washington, and am a proud resident of North Portland, where I'm raising my family. #boymom Before real estate, my career spans two decades of expertise I'm fortunate enough to apply every day. These experiences range from being a TV news anchor (visual storyteller) to helping develop some of the world's beloved brands (strategy and engagement). I was practically born with a tool belt on: my Dad is a retired custom home 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 clients' 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. For a look inside my everyday life, be sure to follow along on Instagram. High fives!
