Blog Stories A WIN-LOSE in Rose City Park

A WIN-LOSE in Rose City Park

By Erika George & Kari McGee, March 1, 2018

Sure, everybody talks about achieving a Win/Win in real estate,  but in this case, our buyers, Ian and Emily, got a Win/Lose.  But, save your “wah wah” for another post.  In this case, Ian and Emily were able to WIN this darling Rose City Park English Tudor house and were able to LOSE their long daily work commute times by selling their Vancouver home.  The process wasn’t for the faint of heart, however, as it involved selling and buying at the same time through the contingent sale process.

Ian and Emily kept their eyes on the prize, however.  We helped them employ effective negotiation strategies when the contingent process threw them curve balls. Good communication and, ultimately, a willingness to be flexible, got them past the finish line.  They moved in last month and are really enjoying all they have won (cute home, lovely yard, vibrant and walkable neighborhood) and all they have lost (daily extended cross-river commutes).  Congratulations Ian and Emily!

If you are looking to WIN (or even LOSE) in real estate, give Kari and Erika a call!

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 karianderika@livingroomre.com
