Where is Bull Mountain?

By Mel Marzahl, November 14, 2020

Bull Mountain is one of the far SW suburbs of Portland, near Tigard. It’s a small mountain sitting between 99W and Roy Rogers that was once mostly grassy and used for farming and grazing of cattle, hence the name.

It’s now home to pockets of forested areas and thousands of homes full of a wide range of ages and styles. There are some homes built in the late seventies that are on acre lots, luxury homes with incredible views, a handful of small farms and horse properties, and new construction neighborhoods of single-family homes and townhouses that have great neighborhood amenities and shared open spaces. The area is great for walking and depending on which side of the mountain you end up on, you may be rewarded with a view of Mt. Hood, neighboring towns, rolling hills, or even a glimpse of Willamette Valley.

The median sale price on Bull Mountian is about $595,000 which is up 26.09% from last year!* If you’re interested in learning more about Bull Mountain or any of the other southwest suburbs please reach out. I love showing off my neighborhood and the surrounding areas!

Raised in the Pacific Northwest, Mel became a passionate advocate for homeownership and investing in real estate after buying and selling her first home. What drew her to it was realizing the significant financial impact the right investment property can make and learning how much having a home to truly call your own can improve your quality of life. Her specialties are working with first-time home buyers and sellers yet she is fluent in all aspects of residential real estate. She is trained extensively in real estate negotiation, holding both the CNE (Certified Negotiation Expert) and RENE (Real Estate Negotiations Expert) designations. Mel knows that with all the technology available to buyers and sellers, one of the best skills a REALTOR® can have is knowing how to be a collaborative negotiator to get the best outcome for their clients. After a decade-long career working in operations and client service for creative companies, Mel earned her Broker’s license and made the move to real estate. She listens to her client’s needs and aims to treat everyone involved in a transaction with honesty and integrity. She loves getting to know her clients, their wants, and needs to ensure they get the highest level of service Mel is known for. Mel brings creativity and an eye for detail to the table with a background in art and events. She enjoys a remodel or renovation project, has a soft spot for old craftsman homes, loves helping first-time buyers, and educating her clients on the selling and purchasing process. She believes in staying up to date on market trends, technology, and tools available to real estate agents. This gives her an edge when it comes to marketing properties and communicating with her clients. When Mel is not working in real estate she is volunteering with the Red Cross, gardening, hosting dinner parties, or relaxing at home on Bull Mountain with her husband, son, two big dogs, and a handful of chickens.
