Downsizing and decluttering for peace of mind

By Kristine Lebow, March 5, 2018

Wilma and Dean heard about  Pringle Creek Community while living in the Bay area. They were looking for a place that would answer their quest for a peaceful retreat; a sustainable and uncluttered home with like minded neighbors. 

Their daughter was looking at college in Salem, so it made perfect sense. Wilma sent me this article that articulated her desire to downsize to a simple, sustainable home incorporating the outdoors, and her desire to seek meaningful connections with neighbors.     https://visitmaine.com/quarterly/simple-life/maine-minimalism-natural-fit

This LEED platinum home does just that.   It’s small, light filled and beautiful-  the perfect getaway to a place that emphasizes values of family, community and nature.

Growing up in the Portland area, I have spent decades living in and exploring Portland and surrounding areas from Newberg to Astoria to Sandy. Part of what I can help you do is figure out where you want to live- Your home is where you establish roots and build community, and your neighborhood is key. I came to real estate after 25 years as a design professional/ product manager in the sports and luxury apparel industry.  Those years of planning, negotiation and marketing were great preparation for guiding clients through the intricacies of buying or selling a home, and I love the process. My joy comes from helping people find solutions-  whether it’s finding the perfect house, making a move to a new home or just exploring options.First, we review your needs and wants,  then create a plan that fits your budget and timing. Thinking of Buying? When you find a house you want to become your home,  I will guide you through the offer and inspection process, including any negotiations on terms or repairs. You will know exactly where we are in the process and what your options are. Time to Sell? Knowing what buyers are looking for helps me help you get your home ready to sell for the highest and best price.  We’ll focus on what will attract buyers, and I will become your biggest advocate. My interest in green building and energy efficiency led me to earn certifications as: Earth Advantage Broker ADU Specialist Energy Trust Professional Trade Ally. I am committed to great service and being a resource long after your sale is done, so if you need a trades person or just an opinion, let’s chat.  I always appreciate your calls!
