The Heart of Happy Valley

By Ben Samson, February 25, 2020

This home boasts 5 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms all over 3 floors.  At just around 3000 sq ft this home sits on a manicured lot with 2 decks facing the valley and views of Mt. Hood from the master bedroom.  It’s walking distance to so much-Grocery stores, yoga studios, restaurants, bars, etc. It has everything on the proverbial checklist if it were only just a home.  But this is not just a home.  This home helped raise a family and hosted many holidays, birthdays, summer events, just too much to mention here.  But my sellers knew that it was time to move on.  The kids were grown, the latter part of life was in view, and this home was just not needed.  This home did its job.  They had placed the home on the market 3 years prior and pulled it off quickly as it just wasn’t the right time for them to let go.  They discovered that now is the time and I’m happy to help them move on to the next stage of their life.

I have been told by many people that "Portlanders don't like outsiders". Well I'm not from here. I come from a place that rates high in food culture, architectural history, and questionable politics. It's called Chicago and I miss it a lot and loved being born and raised there. That being said, I am not going back. I came here to Portland for a visit and couldn't get it out of my mind. The proximity of Mt. Hood and all of its wonders, the food carts, the waterfalls, the Gorge...are just a few of the beautiful aspects of this state that spoke to me. I moved here in July 2013. The first year of living here I wondered if I would stay despite the aforementioned qualities of Portland and Oregon in general. The more I worked and had some introspective moments the more I realized, I'm staying because of the people. Portland and its people are nice. Plain old nice and proud. They are open and welcoming. They ask "What made you want to move here?" knowing that they want to share their reasons for living here. The air here is literally and figuratively clean. I've had multiple conversations with people about their love of Oregon and all it has to offer. A LITTLE MORE... I went to college for business, dropped out, went back and finished with a degree in healthcare. Then went back to finish my BS in Business Administration with a minor in International Finance. While working in some of the busiest Emergency Departments in Chicago, Manhattan, and San Francisco I was always searching for more. I co-founded a sports uniform business that supplied basketball uniforms to approximately 45 schools throughout the city of Chicago. After selling my shares to the co-founder I obtained my Realtor license in Chicago in July of 2007. I became rookie of the year for my company and fell in love with all things real estate. Now I'm here and have purposely waited to obtain my Portland Realtor license until I felt I could speak to clients about the neighborhoods, schools, personalities, and quirks of Portland. I want to share my knowledge and new found love for Portland and its people with others and help them find their LIVING ROOM.
