Sometimes it’s all about the backyard!

By Martin Cross, July 6, 2020


Grant and Bryce we’re looking for their first home in Portland. They gave me a list of their needs and desires. Two bedroom, at least one bath, something that resembles a dining area or other place to eat. It wasn’t important that it was in a “walkable” neighborhood. A second bath and garage would be a bonus and they’d prefer a fenced backyard for their puppies. What they didn’t expect was for this classic 1965 ranch to have an AMAZING, parklike backyard. Sometimes its all about the backyard.

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.
