URBAN OASIS IN ALBERTA ARTS

By Sally Tansill, May 27, 2021

What a pleasure it was to bring this thoughtfully attended bungalow to market! My clients spent eight years touching every corner of this house inside and out, bringing their vision to life and the combined effect of all of their effort is truly enchanting inside and out. Interior features include newly refinished hardwood floors, exposed ceiling beams, new kitchen countertops, and a beautifully tiled fireplace. The open plan and high-end design choices make the living spaces worthy of a magazine cover. The exterior of the home is as noteworthy as the interior complete with a chicken coop that could be a separate listing. Each square foot has been reimagined to tie together the raised planting beds, stone walkway, play area, and seating area all anchored by a concrete dining table with a built-in water feature. The table seats up to 12 and sits under a beautiful arbor covered in climbing purple wisteria.

She/Her

Sally moved to Portland with her family in 2012 from Brooklyn, NY, seeking an improved quality of life and a change of pace from her busy career in the sports industry. Moving with very little personal connection to the city was difficult and at times overwhelming, but she knew it would suit her lifestyle and be a place that reinforced the values she wanted for her children, and she was right! A mother of three (four, including her dog Eli), she has navigated new neighborhoods, schools, and other city resources and looks forward to sharing that knowledge with people looking to create or renew their own sense of place. The idea of "home" means something different to everyone and Sally's goal for her clients is to find the place where that word resonates for them. Every stage of life provides an element of transition and that often comes with a desire to change your surroundings. For some, it could be a question of space while for others it is changing scenery between the city and the country. Sally has lived in apartments, condominiums, teepees (long story), studios, rented houses, and now owns a home as well as a few rental properties with her husband in Portland. Sally is an avid skier and music fan and loves that this city provides the opportunity to pursue all of those interests in such an accessible way. Her sports loyalties still lie on the east coast, but she has caught the Portland Timbers bug and loves going to games with her family: the camaraderie is contagious! Ever the optimist, she believes that positive relationships and people are the key to personal and professional success, especially when it comes to real estate! She loves sharing her experience and wants to guide her clients to the place they call home.
