Rooms With A View…

By Erika George & Kari McGee, April 5, 2018

Story and Kathryn are about to start the next chapter of their family life by moving to a special home in Lake Oswego.  Like most big decisions, leaving their beloved Laurelhurst neighborhood was a hard choice to make, but the call of a quieter, more peaceful life has been persistent and ultimately, Kathryn and Story made the decision to try someplace new for their gang.

Their new home isn’t huge, or fancy, but it’s special; truly special.  Once or twice a year we see a home that makes us stop and take notice!  A home that creeps into our heart and soul, and joyfully announces its noteworthy presence.  Kathryn and Story’s new home on Olson Ct. is just such a home.  There’s the exceptional quality of building that resulted from a custom build, and obvious pride of ownership from the recent, sole owners.   There are lots of technical building specifics we could throw at you to impress you builder types, but more simply put, when we look at the ceiling of an unfinished basement and there’s not a cobweb, nor a crack, nor a nail hole or even a speck of dirt behind the furnace, well, you know that you are viewing a home that has been lovingly cared for.

But beyond the quality of craftsmanship, the light flooded public rooms, and spacious cheerful kitchen, is the lot.  This home is perched on top of a gentle slope that unfolds to the south western valley below, and oh the things that you can view from the front stoop, or the side balcony, or the living room, the dining area, or even the downstairs, daylight basement bedroom!  The lot is so perfectly situated that there are territorial views from just about every room in the house.  The rest of the windows that aren’t south or west facing, get to ponder the lush and private garden lot that surrounds this cheery home.

So here’s to lucky Story and Kathryn for nabbing such a remarkable property.  We can’t wait to see how your lives take root and blossom on Olson Ct!



Erika + Kari

Broker | Esquire & Principal Broker

The HouseLovePDX Team fuses comprehensive real estate knowledge and legal expertise in the dynamic landscape of Portland, Oregon.

Realtor Erika George brings to the table 20 years of experience as an attorney specializing in construction and contracts. Principal Broker Kari McGee has helped clients successfully navigate the evolving Portland real estate market since 2005. Regardless of the market or your particular circumstances, these highly skilled real estate agents will ensure that your goals become your reality. WHAT WE KNOW We know that real estate is not a one size fits all endeavor. It’s easy to find real estate data on the internet these days, but it’s what we do with the data that counts. HouseLovePDX provides a thoughtful and proactive analysis of current market data for every one of our clients. We know that small details can make a big difference. We consider factors you may not be aware of when buying a house, selling a condo or planning an ADU. From open permits to missing credits on escrow statements, these issues can cost you money. Let us guide you through the real estate process, from big picture dreams about your future home to the nitty gritty of contract negotiation. We know that your “why” often comes before your “how” in real estate. We take extra time with our clients to fully understand all the reasons why you want to make a move to, from or within the Portland area. We use this insight as the key to develop a comprehensive plan for you. Don’t be surprised if we start our meetings by delving deep into your real estate knowledge, your past experiences, your goals and your dreams! WHAT WE LOVE It’s a privilege to help a client sell a beloved home and move on to the next chapter of life. We love seeing Portland, neighborhood by neighborhood, through the eyes of someone who is new to the area and full of excitement. As Northwest natives who grew up together (we’re cousins!), our love for Portland runs deep. And we adore the the moment when a buyer walks into a house and we all know it’s the one: aka HouseLove! We would be honored to help guide you through your changing real estate needs in Portland Oregon. CONTACT Erika George and Kari McGee 503.349.5449 | 971.322.6612
