Blog Stories SENDING IT


By Drew Burchette, December 28, 2020

The term “sending it” has a lot of different meanings depending on the context. I’m not sure about this, but I think it originated in the rock climbing world. Used in a sentence: “Tommy Caldwell was the first one to send the Dawn Wall on El Capitan”. When I’m snowboarding with my kids at Timberline, they always say “watch this dad, I’m gonna send it off that big jump” (then they do and scare the life out of me). At the World Surf League 2019 Tahiti Pro, Owen Wright sent it over the ledge of a Chopes drainer to beat Gabby in the final; it was insane. Everyone is sending it these days.

To get an offer accepted in the current Portland Real Estate Market these days, you’ve got to do the same: Send It!! After touring a cute house in SW Portland last month with my clients Jessi & Keith, they told me they wanted to write an offer. I knew it was going to be a popular one, so we pulled all the levers: price, terms, etc. It took a really brave and well-constructed offer to beat out the other 8 frothing buyers. It is not always comfortable to send it in the moment…but when you stick the landing or get spat out of the tube, it is always worth taking the risk.

I arrived in the real estate business over a decade ago and have since helped scores of people buy and sell their homes. The groundswell that I created in my practice is rooted in the relationships that I have nurtured over the years. My style is educational, and I see myself as the coach and leader of your real estate transaction. My coaching is geared towards empowering you to make informed decisions that will lead to your best possible outcome. I excel at asking the questions that get to the heart of the matter which in turn enables a smooth sale process. Away from the office I am passionate about so many things, but it all begins and ends with my family. My boys are both in elementary school and parenting is an ongoing challenge and joy for my wife and I. We love to travel around Oregon, the East Coast, Mexico and beyond. My passion for surfing, kiteboarding, and fishing help to keep me grounded in life. Read more reviews
