Truth: things happens for a reason.

By Living Room Realty, October 25, 2018

Thank you, universe, for the nice reminder that things usually work out just as they should.

“Some things fall apart so that better things can come together.”

“Whatever is meant to be, will find a way”.

You know, all of those usually seemingly cheesy quotes that we refer to when we need to feel relief? Well, hello, those are real.

My sweet client, Lynn, was put through the ringer with a crazy appraisal scenario that ended up pulling a deal apart. It was a doozy. After being back on the search for a while though, a home popped up that seemed like a pretty obvious fit. Lynn wanted to be close to her son in Happy Valley, needed space for her aging mother who will be moving in, and wanted a home that felt charming and cozy, yet move-in ready and not leaving her with projects to boot. She got it all! She is now a Milwaukie dweller with a spacious, single level property, an open kitchen to the dining area, beautiful wood floors, and some seriously special beveled glass windows.

Lynn brought her game to the table and beat out 3 other offers on this home. We played with a few different details to make her offer shine and one thing that set us apart was communication! After some conversation the listing agent let us know the sellers were having a hard time getting rid of the old Organ in the garage- Lynn agreed to take it and they were thrilled! Always talk it out when you’re trying to make things happen in real estate. What is business without communication, anyways?

All of this in mind and still, I feel like the winner in the scenario was me. Shopping with Lynn and Chris was a delight and I’m looking forward to keeping in touch down the road. Welcome home!

Peep the organ below. Kind of cool, huh?
