Baby Boom Blooming in Portland, OR!

By Bonnie Roseman, June 18, 2018

Next Generation Portland

Over the many seasons that I have been a real estate agent in Portland, Oregon, this spring has brought me more clients with, or preparing to have, young ones than I can ever remember before.

Folks from near and far are choosing PDX as the place to grow their families. Not only are people migrating from San Francisco, the City by the Bay, and California in general, but also from as far as Brooklyn and Atlanta, and as close as Beaverton, to their new homes in Portland proper.

One lucky family closed today on this beauty in the Woodstock area, ready for a better quality of life. They love the walkable business district with local merchants galore and the easy access to the nearby park. They will be settling in to this Renaissance Home, built just a couple of years ago.

Newer home that fits in the neighborhood

Some have come from across the country and some are staying close to home. The Portland life style is a steady draw. The verdant tree canopies, vibrant spring flora, array of organic food options, solid parks and rec and community supported public schools keep ’em coming, and the pet friendly, kid friendly, welcoming neighborhoods keep ’em staying close, even when moving from one home to the next.

Bonnie Roseman

Principal Broker, Earth Advantage + ADU Specialist

Bonnie hit the real estate scene in Portland when Silence of the Lambs was killing it in the theaters, the Cold War was officially chilled and the national median sales price of a home was $120,000. Since then, she's been delighted to assist clients in navigating the ever changing housing market: whether selling a first home or the family home, looking for a starter pad or a forever habitat, downsizing, resizing or buying and selling investment property. Having a symbiotic connection with your real estate agent is key and will help ensure a great experience. Bonnie enjoys consulting with potential clients to discover their wishes and goals, confirming the right client-agent match. Smooth transactions are the target; however, there can be unexpected bumps getting to the closing table. Bonnie excels at finding creative solutions to any mishegoss that pops up and she takes pride in an extremely low sale fail rate. A little more about Bonnie: born in Philly, raised in Berkeley, mom to an incredible young woman; her home is filled with both furry and scaly creatures, the daily driver is all electric, equality is the only pathway; she's embraced veganism for the earth, the animals and her health.
