Many people come through my website searching for real estate all over the Portland area. I received a lead one morning and I promptly responded to their questions and started helping them with their new home search. They are a husband and wife and they have two small girls. Since they were relocating from Syracuse New York, they wanted to find a home in the 400-500k range near Intel in Hillsboro. So I began my search and after months of sending them properties they contacted me to go visit a listing in the Century High School District. This particular property had all the wonderful interior features that they wanted but the backyard was extremely small. In the Syracuse area where they lived prior to moving here, they have much larger plots of land.
I decided to extend their home search into areas that have larger lots. We first looked at a NW Portland home that had recently been updated. Unfortunately, the large hills in the neighborhood wouldn’t work well for their two girls to ride their bikes and play with friends. We saw a couple homes in the Beaverton area, but the husband was concerned with the commute from Hillsboro to Beaverton. I recommended that they drive to and from Hillsboro during rush hour. It turned out to be only a 25-30 minute commute from this specific part of Beaverton into Hillsboro. With the commute in mind, we visited a beautiful remodeled property on Cooper Mountain. It had all the features that they were looking for but most importantly it had a wonderfully large backyard. The yard had a three tier deck from the back patio, mature fruit trees and flowers, bark dusted fenced playground for the girls and lots of green grass.
They are so excited about their new home purchase and will be sending me photos once they move in. I truly enjoy helping buyers find the perfect home that fits their family's lifestyle. Thanks for reading my blog and please visit my client testimonials page to hear from all of my happy past clients.
