The Odds are In Your Favor.

By Gabrielle Enfield, October 1, 2019

Every real estate sale is different. That’s a big part of why I love this job so. Dang. Much.

For Amy, she knew the basics of what to expect and worked hard to be a “student of real estate” — attending First Time Homebuying classes provided by the state. Asking her lender all the questions she needed to know confidently move forward with her purchase. And of course, I was by her side to inform her of her options to purchase. I was so excited to get her the keys to her new home that is not only a great option for her, but a long-term solid investment.

Did you know that homeowners’ net worth is on average 44x greater than that of a renter? Wow. Read more here.

Working with first time homebuyers is some of the most rewarding work I do. I remember what it’s like – it’s a huge decision with a LOT of dollar signs attached. My promise to my partners is that I will be there – with resources, with answers, with advice, with hot coffee and a hug (I love hugs), if you need it. We’re entering a market cool down and the market continues to balance in favor of buyers. Interest rates are low. And while buyers are stepping up to the plate to take advantage of purchasing in today’s economic climate, you won’t see the level of competition that was taking place in the peak summer months. If you’ve had any interest in learning more about the market and how you fit in, please reach out. I’ll keep the coffee on.

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!
