My Oh My Montavilla!

By Shannon Dooley, November 30, 2018

These lovely ladies spent a lot of time thinking and dreaming about the first home they would own together. When the time finally came they were torn between several neighborhoods but ended up finding their dream home together in Montavilla. The home has been immaculately maintained, has an easy care yard, which was a must, and has some super fun design elements including an awesome basement that is oozing with possibility!

In addition to being in the perfect location for commuting to work they are super excited about the walkability of their new neighborhood. Brunch at the Country Cat, amazing oysters at the Over & Out bar (tucked away behind the Observatory) and when they’re feeling fancy the Vintage Cocktail Lounge beckons with it’s charm of years gone by. They will find amazing phó, cupcakes, coffee shops, and some of the best food and dive bars in town. I won’t give away the deepest secrets of Montavilla, they’re best left for exploring on ones own, but this is definitely a neighborhood worth investigating.

Working with these two was truly enjoyable. They are kind, thoughtful, and have a chemistry that is so complimentary it boggles the mind. I look forward to seeing them grow together in life and in their home.

Earth Advantage Broker and ADU Specialist

Shannon grew up in a real estate family, and as a third generation Realtor it seems that it is actually in her DNA. She spent 18 years working in public service both as a Medic and a City of Portland 9-1-1 Dispatcher, but real estate has always been her passion. Her first investment in Portland area real estate was in 2003 and she has been actively watching and participating in the market since. She believes owning real estate is empowering and wants to see as many people own homes as possible. Shannon’s commitment to honesty and ethical practice is evident to her clients and has earned her the Five Star Professional Rising Star award two years running. As an Earth Advantage Broker and ADU specialist Shannon is happy to talk your ear off about the possibilities that exist and help you determine the route that best suits your real estate goals. When working with clients she always put their best interest first: * Sellers, she will market your home to the largest pool of buyers possible using professional networks and Living Room Realty’s comprehensive marketing. * Buyers, she loves helping you find new homes and working collaboratively with other agents to ensure a positive experience. * First Time Home Buyers, you hold a special place in Shannon’s heart. She takes great pride in taking time to explain the process so you never feel lost and (little secret) she still gets a little teary eyed when she hands over those keys. * Real Estate Investors, she wants to help you build your portfolio. Whether it’s your first investment property or your fifteenth, regardless of the complexity, she’ll have it under control. Having lived in many of Portland’s neighborhoods, Shannon found herself in love with North Portland where she has settled with her husband Craig, their two dogs Arnold and Spencer, and the worlds most talkative cat John Meowkovich. Craig is a licensed home inspector and general contractor by day, but the two of them are always taking on some sort of creative life endeavor. They have started a food truck, purchased and developed a small farm, written and illustrated a children’s book, etc. I think the kids these days would say they, “Can’t stop, won’t stop.” They have a daughter who is currently traveling Europe for several months with her girlfriend – this brings them incredible joy. Shannon loves traveling, meeting new people, attempting to keep house plants alive, exploring Portland neighborhoods, and supporting local businesses.
