Tom Tom

By Living Room Realty, February 5, 2019

You know when you meet a person and just instantly click? Like to the point of having hilarious nicknames for eachother in the matter of hours? That was John and I. John was relocating from Baltimore and had an insatiable curiosity for all things Portland. Namely food and drink… right up my alley! John, aka Tom Tom, was so much fun to look at houses with. We looked all over close-in eastside for his perfect combination of modern and classic: funky Tabor homes with incredible views; classic Alameda charmers; cool Clinton/Division bungalows; and just a few Beaumont-Wilshire homes. Lo and behold, the perfect home, complete with classic charm and impeccable remodeling, surfaced a few blocks north of Fremont in Beaumont-Wilshire. John walked in and I could see the wheels of excitement turn in his head in a way that no other home had done for him. He took to spread-sheeting the comps (a man after my own excel heart), and we put an offer in. It was a tough negotiation, but on Christmas Eve, we came to a deal. John and his sweet pup Jackson now have an incredible home, with an incredible yard, in an incredible neighborhood… and John and I have nicknames forever! Congratulations from Patches to Tom Tom!
