We helped Linh and Cam buy their first home years ago. He was deployed at the time, and it was a pretty huge deal even though the house itself was pretty modest. They just moved into their ‘forever’ house along with their two kids, and the plan was to keep this first house in the family. Alas not everything went according to plan.

When Linh called on a Saturday to ask us to sell the house, there was obviously a frustrating story behind it. When we met the next day, it was striking to see how high the emotions were running. We had seen her handle the stress of buying the first home; plan their wedding; and manage the remodel of their new home, but I had never seen steam come out of her ears before. We knew we had to make some magic happen, so we hit the ground running!

This was still going to be a Tom+Doug production which meant excellent curb appeal, beautiful interiors, and professional photography. Everything fell into place so smoothly! Linh and Cam detailed the property inside and out on Monday and Tuesday. Spade & Archer staged the home on Wednesday. Boone Brothers shot photos and video on Thursday. We launched on Friday, and had three offers to review on Saturday. One week after getting Linh’s call! Crazy!

Couldn’t have happened to nicer people! So pleased to have been able to help them achieve this, and grateful to them for committing to the process of prepping for the market. It is so important to be the shiniest penny out there!

Portland. We like it. This has become a bit of a meme with family and friends because we so often find ourselves enjoying something unique to Portland and/or the Pacific NW. It can sound glib, but it is simply and completely true. Here since 1992, we are among the ‘newer locals’ - not natives, but completely committed to keeping our city great. It’s probably more honest to say we love it here. Professionally we focus on the inner city neighborhoods on both sides of the Willamette River. This means knowing about the spectrum of housing inventory: ranches and bungalows, classic and contemporary, condos and houses; as well as understanding the neighborhoods where these properties are found. Everybody has a different idea of what ‘home’ looks like, and we apply our breadth of knowledge to make sure you succeed in achieving your specific real estate goals. Sellers - we commit to guiding you through this process: preparation of your property to maximize its appeal, customized marketing materials and advertising, evaluation of offers received, opening of escrow and, finally, closing the transaction. Our advice about how to best prepare for the market is determined both by how much time and energy you have to commit to this as well as our awareness of what Buyers are likely to appreciate (and reward.) Once the home is ready, we and our team will produce the most beautiful and effective marketing materials to generate tremendous Buyer enthusiasm. Throughout this process we minimize your stress by being available and communicating clearly. Buyers - you have so many resources available to you! We will make sure you are aided by technology, not overwhelmed by it. Touring is key to evaluating properties so we will get you through as many homes as possible to make sure you find the right one. Our evaluation of homes together will be aided by our knowledge of location and common issues (informed by attending countless inspections!) We listen carefully to what you are hoping for, making sure you purchase a property that truly meets your needs and supports your lifestyle. Our work together will be driven by your wants and needs. The first step is a conversation. Call us!
