THE ONE is Worth Waiting For!

By Living Room Realty, January 24, 2019

Ashlie and David came to me last summer to help them find the perfect home for their family. Their list of needs/wants was reasonable, but there was one catch – they had a STRONG desire to stay in the Rieke school boundary. Now, if you know anything about Portland neighborhoods and schools, you know that a relatively affordable, spacious home is pretty hard to come by in Hillsdale. Fortunately, however, this family wasn’t in a rush, and we agreed to take a slow approach and wait for the perfect home to pop up.

After viewing many homes and even considering moving out of the school boundary, I got a text one day from them about a sign that went up in front of a house JUST across the street from Wilson High School. The home wasn’t yet listed on the MLS, so we reached out to the agent on the sign to get the details. It was listed within a day or two, and of course, my clients were one of the first to see it. We immediately put together a strong offer and sailed through one of the most uneventful contract periods of my career.

I delivered keys to this awesome family last week, and they are getting settled into their adorable home – THE perfect home for their family! I was so happy to be a part of their story!
