New Home for Scrappers

By Debra Hornbecker, March 15, 2018

Yesterday was a whirl wind!  Between writing offers and running the kids to and from appointments, I had the pleasure of getting the keys to Scrappers’, new home!


He had been looking close in SE with the hopes of staying in the vicinity of his son’s school.  Looking in close in SE with financing is no easy feat.  Time and time again, the houses that we saw went to developers with all cash.  It’s hard to compete and even harder to stay positive.  But Scrappers wouldn’t give up and neither would I.  I new that when we found his house, that everything would fall into place.


When this stucco home became available, he jumped at the chance to write an offer.  It had been purchased by developers this winter who had intended to fully renovate the home.  However, the developer ran into a time crunch with another project, and they decided to sell this home with only part of the project complete.  Win for us!  My clients’ offer was one of   six offers received, but our offer was selected.  I truly believe that in circumstances such as these, that this home was meant to be his.

Congrats Scrappers!  I hope you love your new home!

Helping people find their dream home is my dream job. I have lived in Portland for 18 years and consider Portland my adopted home. I got into real estate after working in the trenches of social work for many years. As a result of my background in social work and servicing my clients' every changing needs, I bring with me great communication skills and a deep caring and understand of the needs of my clients. I love the varied architecture that Portland has to offer. I love getting to know my clients and helping them discover which kinds of homes and neighborhoods best meet their needs. I don't see myself as a salesperson. Rather, I am a service professional. I bring my caring nature to my work and I am always there for my clients. I feel so fortunate to have found Living Room Realty. At the brokerage, I collaborate with a diverse team of marketing professionals in order to capture the emotion of every home that I list. The marketing materials produced are the most beautiful and authentic way to sell your home and get the most out of your listing. When I am not at the office or out with clients, you can find me hiking, reading, and cooking. I currently live in close-in SW Portland with my husband Chris, and our two kids Elias (11) and Inez (8).
