Whirlwind tour!

By Kristin Winter, April 25, 2018

In the last five months Virginia (Ginny) & Darren (Bubba) have done it all!  In between surfing, work, and time for friends, they have brought charming and handsome Ole into this world. His “flirting baby” look has already charmed this lady!  They then decided it was time to buy a house they could call home.  In four weeks, we looked at many houses, found five keepers that we wrote offers on, and finally in Portland’s competitive market landed this honey!  As if that wasn’t enough they jet-setted off to Europe, giving Ole a look at Germany before he is 6 months old (passport photo priceless!).  Now they are ready to settle down for a bit in their beautiful new home within walking distance of one of my favorite corners – Dekum Triangle!  And the smile has never left their faces – I have admired the love and kindness these two have shown the world and each other while we’ve been working together!

I feel so lucky to have been a small part in this all and am just SO STOKED to see what the future holds for these two!!  Best of luck you guys!

The short(ish) story:  Growing up, I had two parents with an obsession with “fixers.” My mom was an artist and my dad was an engineer. They would find a house and make it a home. Then, my dad would be transferred for work, making them inadvertent flippers. The first time they tried this I was 9 ~ I cried when I saw the house. But by the time we moved, the 200 year old farm house in rural Pennsylvania had been transformed to it’s former splendor with things such as a walk-in fireplace with a bread oven in the kitchen, a restored spring-house, an attic redesigned as a “kids only” playhouse, and a working barn. It was pretty magical. This childhood has given me a passion for homes and a deep understanding of what makes a house a home. I pull from both my father’s “logical” engineer’s brain and my mother’s ability to turn whimsical dreams into reality. I love immersing myself in homes and getting to know my clients as unique people in order to make their dreams come true, whether they are buying or selling.
