What Moves You?

By Andy Meeks, April 22, 2018

Ever since I was a little kid, I’ve been drawn to the outdoors. My mother would chase me out of the house on nice days, and even today I have a hard time sitting still. This first stretch of longer, warmer, sunnier days is like an alarm bell for my soul.

My parents raised me in and around the coastal waters of Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut, as well as in the woods of northern Virginia. Those places hold some of the most formative moments of my life. Always and ever since, I’ve sought out quiet, beautiful spaces by foot and bike all over New England and the western United States.

And yet, Oregon is a dream world of natural wonders exceeding anything I’ve experienced before. I moved here ten years ago on a grand adventure with my best friend (and now wife), and we know that here we’ve found the deepest reservoirs of opportunity, adventure, and happiness. The Pacific Northwest truly never disappoints.

During this stretch of beautiful weather, I hope you can take time to appreciate the natural wonders of your backyard, your neighborhood, our city, our state, and this incredible bioregion. There is so much to appreciate about our shared home.

Happy Earth Week!

Earth Advantage Broker

My clients are always my top priority, and my singular focus is to help them achieve their goals efficiently and effectively. This is the intention I set every day, and how I define success. As a trained and licensed attorney, I lead with a sharp attention to detail, a keen ear and focused voice, and an unwavering commitment to integrity, transparency and responsiveness. I’m a passionate advocate and I thrive when helping others succeed, and I’m always available to connect over a cup of coffee to learn how I can help make good things happen. Read my client reviews here. The choice to become a real estate broker was a joyful combination of two very different careers. Prior to moving to Portland in 2008, I was an environmental and title closing attorney in Massachustts. Since then, I've served as a program manager and fundraising professional for Portland-based non-profit organizations Friends of Trees, The Freshwater Trust and Ecotrust. While not scouting homes and helping clients, you can find me riding and racing bicycles, digging in the garden, practicing yoga, experimenting in the kitchen, and exploring the stunning beauty of the Pacific Northwest. Please let me know how I can help you or someone you know. Thank you!
