Leveraging Tech for a Cross-Country Move

By Gabrielle Enfield, February 7, 2018

Recently, I met a local physician and his family who were out scouting homes for his parents. The parents were in New Jersey – life-long East Coasters – who had decided it was time for a relocation to be closer to their grandkids. They knew what they wanted, and in order to meet their requirements, we needed to keep a close eye on the Portland market, waiting for the perfect property to come up. When we saw this incredible home in Raleigh Hills, sitting on an acre of land with its own pond and tranquil setting, we put technology to work to get the parents (virtually) inside.

Through a series of FaceTime calls and tours, we got the go ahead to make a move and present an offer. With regularly scheduled, twice-daily check ins and screen shares, we were able to navigate the ropes of an all-electronic transaction. By serving as boots on the ground for my clients, I was able to oversee all points of the inspection process and was honored to have earned their trust in this important decision.

The new owners will be moving in just in time for this beautiful oasis to come to life with spring blooms, and at last check, a few ducks to call their own.

Are you looking to relocate and need to find the right agent to make real estate work across time zones? Give me a call. Or better yet, let’s FaceTime and get to know each other.

High fives, and till the next one,

After spending 20 years in marketing and communications – ranging from anchoring the local TV news to leading teams for some of the world’s beloved brands, including Xbox and Dave’s Killer Bread – I finally listened to the universe’s prompts to become a real estate broker. Since, I've consistently delivered results and happiness and according to my clients, a 5-star experience along the way. Working in real estate in one of the nation's hottest markets, I understand the important decision of choosing an agent. My goal is to apply my myriad experiences, both personally and professionally, to help guide my clients through a thoughtful, strategic, seamless and fun journey. Need staging help? I can do that. Looking to purchase a vacation property and need it to generate rental income? Roger. Are you a first-time buyer who needs a steady hand to help guide you through the real estate process? I've got you covered. Moving to PDX and need a proxy to get to know Rose City? Let's do this. I'm a PacNW native and proud resident of North Portland, where I'm raising my family. I was practically born with a tool belt on: my Dad is a retired custom designer and builder, my uncle is an architect and my Grandpa was a Realtor and developer. I am an active listener, have a keen eye for "good bones",  and solving my client's real estate needs in a creative and often unexpected way brings me joy. Plus, the lasting relationships formed are cherries on the sundae! Please give me a call - I'd love to see what it would be like to partner with you.
