Fixer-upper in Mill Park

By Daniela Sardo, February 1, 2019

I remember my math teacher in elementary school insisting that the secret to wealth was to purchase a small fixer upper, moving in, making it very nice over time, and then selling it, taking the proceeds to purchase a larger fixer upper and doing the same. Wash, rinse, repeat. Rafael may not have been in that same math class but he learned that same lesson. He worked hard, built great credit, saved his money and purchased his first home one year ago. When it came time to sell, it was beautiful. He had done such lovely work that it sold in one week. He turned right around and purchased his next home. This time an even greater cosmetic fixer that will allow him to hone some of his skills as a remodeler. He was so jazzed that he even met me to get his keys at closing with tools in hand ready to start the job. This time however, the potential reward will be greater. Rafael has even challenged himself to do this job in one half the amount of time that it took to do the last one! I can’t wait to see the result!

You might see me riding my motorcycle down a long winding Oregon country road in Eagle Creek, or scooting in-and-out of traffic in NE Portland, as I make my way through Last Thursday on Alberta. When given the chance, I’m exploring the different neighborhoods and communities that make Oregon a beautiful place to live, and the place that I call home. With an advanced degree in education and many years experience in the high-tech industry, I have the drive and experience to take people through the ever-changing landscape of Real Estate. I began my career well over 10 years ago and realized the  passion I have in working with both buyers and sellers. I’m known for outstanding client service, extensive availability, and am a skilled negotiator with my client’s best interests at heart. I believe it is my duty to represent my clients to the best of my ability but also to educate them throughout every step of the process armed with the information to make the best decisions possible. My business is 100% referral based and I count each and every client I have worked with as a friend today. I am an experienced Realtor in first-time home buying, short sales, HUD and bank owned properties.
