Time was of the essence when Andrew called, he found his jewel of a house and wanted to submit an offer promptly. I was in route headed home from our family vacation from Costa Rica to Portland, OR with two layovers and having to be in air for 8 hours. I knew I’d have to find the most efficient and focused time to draft a precise offer while floating in the clouds. So, our offer commenced 36,000 ft in the air on United Airlines.  

The last time Andrew had called me to submit an offer on the home he and his twin Alex bought 3 years ago, my beautiful wife was in labor with our beautiful daughter Sadé Bloom.  It’s always such a fun adventure working with them. 

I originally met Andrew with his twin brother Alex 3 years ago during an open house at one of our listings; I had long flowing dreadlocks at the time. Immediately after connecting with them, I recognized what special geniuses they were. Andrew is astute with his numbers and Alex is Carlos Santana when he plays his guitar. 

Back in 2016 the market was much different, we were deep into a seller’s market, we competed against multiple offers on several homes before we finally landed the perfect home for them at that time. This time around, Andrew set out this voyage on his own and after careful preparation, when the right home revealed itself we got into contract right away. 

I am so excited for your new adventure Andrew & April! Cheers to your new home sweet home.

Jason & I are a dedicated husband and wife real estate team with a diverse upbringing & an appreciation for local & international backgrounds. What Jason & I love most about Real Estate is making those deep connections with our clients by listening to their goals and serving as their guides through their home sale/purchase journey. We stand by our 3 principles to keep things:
  1. Simple
  2. Stress Free
  3. You Get the Best Deal in the Least Amount of Time
Jason: I am a rugged Jamaican/Oregonian who loves nature and the city. My family immigrated to the US when I was 13 and ever since then Oregon has become my home as well as my adventure playground. When I am not fighting hard for my clients as their guide in this ever evolving Real Estate Market, I am an avid surfer and snowboarder. All year round I have been blessed to find some of Oregon's best set ups for waves. There's nothing quite like Oregon's sandy coastline that brings in a wide range of waves. During deep of winter, you can find me taking breaks from laps at Timberline lodge with a good IPA in hand. For those powder days I make sure to head to Meadows or Skibowl with my snorkel so I stay afloat. Aside from my love of high adrenaline sports, I have a deep passion for interior & exterior plantscaping/gardening. Along with gardening I love learning about bees and their pivotal role in the world. I received my Master bee Keeping Apprentice and have been fascinated with them ever since. I love sharing life with out clients and showcasing Oregon's gorgeous neighborhoods, landscape, its abundant activities and never ending delicious eateries. Kristin & I work hard to help our clients have an amazing journey in the sale/purchase of their home. This is a huge decision for our clients and we don't take our role lightly. Our goal is to be your realtor for life and bring a smile to your face at the end of each and every transaction. Kristin: I was born in Jamaica, grew up in the Philippines & raised by American parents who now live in Chaing Rai, Thailand. About 6 years ago, I was in Thailand visiting family and was trying to figure out what was the next adventure I wanted to go on. I pulled up my laptop and typed in Google: “Where to live in America that is near the ocean, mountains, and has great public transportation.” Portland, OR kept popping up. So, I bought myself a one way ticket and haven’t regretted it since. I have been a nomad for most of my life, living in 7 countries and traveling through 25. Portland has continued to keep me planted due to its magnetic force that brings people from all over the country & the world together; great food, creative cocktails, & beautiful landscape. Some cities have a way of making you feel swallowed up, Portland has a magical way of making you feel at home from the minute you arrive. Once I found my bearings in Portland, I quickly fell in love with Real Estate. As a kid, we all had a theme of Christmas ornaments, mine were always mini houses. I’ve always had an appreciation for the architectural design of homes, and the meaning of what “home” can mean to each person. My home was wherever my family was growing up, and there’s something pretty amazing about seeing a permanent space reflect the meaning of “home.”
