Lovable Portland Weirdos buy Real Estate

By Lauren Clark, April 12, 2018

Nothing is better then working with your loved ones, and these guys are “Loved Ones Two Ways.” Family and dear, dear friends. They take me back to the frugal, green, crunchy Portland weirdness that I grew up with.

Rachel is an acro yogini extraordinaire and health nut who is part owner in a SE Yoga Studio. Steve is a game designer who works remotely for an Icelandic company and a kick ass mountain biker and general daredevil . After years of living abroad in Iceland they made their way back to their hometown and eventually had the “I think I might be able to afford a house!” epiphany not uncommon amongst 30-somethings. 

So we hit the ground running for a place that was old and charming as hell, didn’t require any projects, was bike-able to the yoga studio on Division, walkable to fantastic food, 3 bed 2 bath, and around $500k.

We found it all, and got if for an unbelievable $150,000 less then the original list price. Nailed it.

Real Estate is an act of service. A lot of people think it’s a sales industry. Or that agents are sales people. And while it possible that some agents may work this way, my business could not be more different. My business is all about listening and building relationships. Whether you’re buying or selling, I am here to listen to your goals, and hear your plans. Once you’ve been heard, and we’re all on the same page, that’s when we get down to the nitty gritty business of making your goals into reality. My goal is to run a people focused business and create wins on both sides of all transactions.  I work hard to foster relationships with my clients, but also with the other agents I work in concert with. I believe that it is always possible to close a transaction in a way that leaves everyone feeling happy and well served. Buying or selling a home is a huge process, and it’s always going to bring a little stress along with it. But when we work as a team toward a shared goal and with mutual respect, it can be a positive experience that allows a home to transfer owners with good will and good vibes. When I’m not with my clients, you’ll find me running around after my partner and two boys, knitting, traveling, camping or watching Downton Abbey for the 20th time.
