We love all homes, after all that’s what we do – but we’re not going to lie. We have a special love for modern homes. And what’s there not to love? They could be: a breath of fresh air in an old historic neighborhood, a great example of simplicity with clean lines and sleek finishes, a feeling of calmness evoked by the zen like gardens and outdoor spaces. We’ve been fortunate to represent our clients in transactions involving amazing modern homes, so in honor of Valentine’s day, for inspiration (or motivation) we thought we’d share some of our favorites homes we’ve represented recently.

If modern is your taste our team can help you scout for the perfect house or help you visualize how an ordinary house can be transformed into the modern home of your dreams. Contact us at 503.793.0782 to find out more.
Love – Dana, Gary & Ruth

Clean your gutters NOW!

I am not trying to be bossy just helpful I got several calls last week during the flooding in Portland for wet and leaking basements. It is very important to make sure your gutters, window wells and leaves are cleared away to prevent wet basements. I toured 3 homes last week with rivers running thru them. Other helpful tips are: Have your fireplace cleaned and safety checked, change your filter on your furnace. Test your smoke detectors and install carbon monoxide detectors. Outside: unhook your hose in case frozen water. Looking for any other home repair/ maintaince  tips drop me a line: Dana Griggs
