When family is everything…Sold in Troutdale!

By Living Room Realty, March 30, 2020

Life is funny. We work so hard to create these worlds for ourselves and then they change, and change again without our control. Tina, my dear client and now friend, was born and raised in Oregon. She found love and ended up moving around for some years until settling again in Arizona. Eventually her three adult children all found their way back here, true lovers of the Pacific Northwest. She has a brand new grand baby in Portland and after years of traveling back and forth, she’s decided to make Oregon home again. Her family is everything to her so though she wasn’t sure she was ready to leave the full time sun in AZ, she was certain she was ready to be home with them for all of life’s moments, the holidays, and a few of her favorite OR perks- the best wine, biker friendly roads, and lush hikes.

We talked on the phone and kept an eye on the market for a couple of months, eventually meeting just two days before Christmas while she was here for a visit. I had the best time showing her around and hearing more about her background, and we eventually found that we share quite a few interests as well. I feel like the universe aligns me with the very best clients that almost always end up becoming good friends of mine and for that I am so thankful.

She’s moving home for good in June and we are looking forward to tasting some grapes together. Can’t wait to take her to an Oregon winery- hello pacific northwest! She will keep busy with courses at community colleges and bike rides as she will be freshly retired and with all sorts of time to kill. Not to mention her very important babysitting duties that will happen a couple times a week. Happy feels all around.

Now we just need to get her home in Tuscon sold! Anyone?

The new digs below, and wine tasting photos of my buddy and I to follow.
