Cynthia and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Year

By Erika George & Kari McGee, August 30, 2018

In an unfair cosmic turn of events, Cynthia has had to hurdle almost all of life’s top stressors (divorce, death, litigation, etc) over the last year.  It has been, as “Alexander” would say, a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad year.  Her final hurdle was to  sell the home she owned with her former spouse and purchase a new one.   Our goal was to find her a fresh start home without her having to move twice, meaning that the timing was going to have to be precise!  As soon as her listed house was under contract, this light-filled, updated Roseway Heights bungalow appeared:

And then karma (the good kind!) finally kicked in!  The seller was also newly single and looking for a fresh start.  The two women (through their realtors) worked as collaboratively as possible to put together a contingent sale.  They were fair and respectful during the inspection period.  Cynthia was able to close on her new home within three days of closing on her former house and she is already enjoying her new NE Portland life!  We hope moving into this beautiful home marks the beginning of Cynthia’s Wonderful, Pleasant, No Bad, Very Good year!!!

Are you in need of a fresh start?  Are you ready to LOVE where you live??  Call Kari and Erika — we can help you make the transition from Very Bad to Very Good.  Even if your name isn’t Alexander (or Cynthia) . . . .

Realtor Erika George brings to the table 20 years of experience as an attorney specializing in construction and contracts. Principal Broker Kari McGee has helped clients successfully navigate the evolving Portland real estate market since 2005. Regardless of the market or your particular circumstances, these highly skilled real estate agents will ensure that your goals become your reality. WHAT WE KNOW We know that real estate is not a one size fits all endeavor. It’s easy to find real estate data on the internet these days, but it’s what we do with the data that counts. HouseLovePDX provides a thoughtful and proactive analysis of current market data for every one of our clients. We know that small details can make a big difference. We consider factors you may not be aware of when buying a house, selling a condo or planning an ADU. From open permits to missing credits on escrow statements, these issues can cost you money. Let us guide you through the real estate process, from big picture dreams about your future home to the nitty gritty of contract negotiation. We know that your “why” often comes before your “how” in real estate. We take extra time with our clients to fully understand all the reasons why you want to make a move to, from or within the Portland area. We use this insight as the key to develop a comprehensive plan for you. Don’t be surprised if we start our meetings by delving deep into your real estate knowledge, your past experiences, your goals and your dreams! WHAT WE LOVE It’s a privilege to help a client sell a beloved home and move on to the next chapter of life. We love seeing Portland, neighborhood by neighborhood, through the eyes of someone who is new to the area and full of excitement. As Northwest natives who grew up together (we’re cousins!), our love for Portland runs deep. And we adore the the moment when a buyer walks into a house and we all know it’s the one: aka HouseLove! We would be honored to help guide you through your changing real estate needs in Portland Oregon. CONTACT Erika George and Kari McGee 503.349.5449 | 971.322.6612
