Blog North Portland Welcome home to University Park!

Welcome home to University Park!

By David Columbus, October 12, 2021

My clients offer was accepted! They stood their ground, refused the bidding war and our backup position came through and won the day. They are looking forward to enjoying life in the the University park neighborhood with quick access to St. Johns and Forest Park. Their new backyard is quiet, beautiful and private with a hot tub and a perfect little pergola for outdoor dining and entertaining.

Do you have a perfect home in mind? I would love to help you. My experience includes residential, commercial, investment property, and multi-family housing. I specialize in historic and mid-century homes.  Smart, personalized client service is key and over 90 percent of my ongoing business is referred from satisfied clients.
