Grandma got a condo in the Pearl!

By Lisa Avena, August 31, 2018

Helping families move closer to one another is one of the most rewarding aspects of my job. I’ve never actually met my client Miriam, but I met her daughter two years ago when my partner and I helped to get her into her first home. After seeing her daughter lay down roots in Portland and start her family, Miriam knew she wanted to be closer to them all to share in their lives in a way she wasn’t able to do from a distance. Miriam decided to pick up and make the move to Portland and needed help navigating her home search from afar. Not a problem! Thanks to facetime, Miriam and I toured many homes together, and I really began to hone in on just what she was looking for. After many months, we finally found the perfect gem in this condo in the Pearl! Close to Miriam’s family, and close to all the amenities she can’t wait to explore with her granddaughter, we knew this was the perfect place for her to call home! Welcome to Portland Miriam and may you have many years of happy memory making in your new home with your family!

Searching for a place to finally lay down roots and to call home, I moved to Oregon with my family over a decade ago. Arriving in Portland, we instantly fell in love with the vibrant neighborhoods, older homes, walkability, and amazing local music scene. We knew immediately that we had finally found our home. We settled down in inner SE where we’ve lived ever since. While in California, I attended UC Davis where I earned a bachelors degree in Sociology and went on to work in social services for over five years, before I began a full time career raising my three daughters and giving back to my community. Some of my volunteer commitments have included serving on several non-profit boards, working as the volunteer outreach coordinator for The Rock ‘n’ Roll Camp for Girls, and helping to coordinate fundraising events and develop community partners for local radio station KZME. As a Realtor, I am absolutely committed to helping my clients not only find the perfect house, but also the right community for them to call home. I take great pride in the level of service I provide. This begins with educating my clients about the process of buying or selling a home, knowing current market conditions, representing their interest and serving as their trusted advisor/negotiator throughout the entire real estate transaction and beyond. As a Realtor, I’ve been able to combine my passions of helping people, building community and my love for the places we call home.  Please let me know how I can help you!
