Exciting changes!

I’m so excited to tell you about exciting changes in my business!

Although my clients have always been gracious, there is no longer any need to squish into the back of a Mini. I bought a Chevy Volt, which has quite a roomy back seat. Even more fabulous, we will now be cruising on electricity! Yay for Earth-friendly comfort! The Volt can run for around 50 miles per charge on electricity. After the first 50 miles it switches to a gas hybrid engine, but I rarely hit that limit in my daily driving.

Another exciting feature is that the Volt has it’s own wi-fi hotspot! I bought a iPad Air 2 for clients to use when we are on the road. With this, we can stay connected with up to date information as we are house hunting. (This also means less need to print so many sheets of information about all the houses we look at. Everything will be available right at your fingertips electronically!)

But more than basic info, if you want to know what information has about a property, we can look it up right away. Have a question about the neighborhood? Let’s find out. Did you want to listen to your favorite music as we drive around? We can easily load up your favorite Pandora station.

House-hunting just hit a new level!

(Contact me for more info, this one is not coming up on our company site.)

3111 SE 8th Ave, Portland, OR 97202. Offered at $599,900.

Brooklyn is an up and coming neighborhood. This house was perfect for a quick move-in. It has a two car tandem garage and is super close to the bridge for those who work downtown. Great, friendly team of people working on it.

Sometimes on tours I see homes that I would personally love to live in. This was one of them. It has a great feeling. Beautiful gourmet kitchen. I loved the dual sinks facing each other in the bathroom, with a mirror between. Large lot with an unexpected pool! Second kitchen in the basement for rental potential?
