Making the move to Kenton

By Lisa Avena, July 20, 2018

I first met Erin and Skip over four years ago when they purchased their first home in the Glendoveer area. At the time they were looking for a home that could provide a separate living space for Erin’s mom. We found the perfect home for them, the only problem was that it was located about 5 miles too far east from their work, friends, and community. These folks made it work for four years and built up enough equity in their home that allowed them to finally make the move closer to where they always wanted to be and were already rooted, in Kenton.

Selling and buying a home can be a tricky process with lots of moving parts, but these folks were true team players, and together we made it happen! They never became discouraged and were amazing throughout the process. Congratulations to this wonderful family! I am honored to  have been a part of your home selling and buying process and to know such kindhearted and amazing people like yourselves!

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!
