This lovely house on SE 38th was just sold by Rose City Realtors. Such an amazing custom remodel in the heart of SE Division. We loved the stunning light-filled gourmet kitchen w/concrete counters, fir cabinets, French doors to backyard garden w/raised beds and mature fruit trees. Beautiful wide plank maple floors throughout. The house has a spacious master suite. Huge finished flex space in basement, perfect for media room.
The new owners will enjoy the adorable work/art studio space in detached garage. This house is in a great SE Portland area, close to so many delicious restaurants including xico one of our favorite Mexican spots, and Salt & Straw (YUM!) plus, its right off of the Clinton Street bike boulevard. What a find!
If you’re in the market for a new neighborhood, let us know, we’d love to help!

Just an FYI from Portland Public Schools…
Dear PPS Community,
Enrollment at Portland Public Schools is steadily growing. This has created an opportunity to have strong schools in every neighborhood by balancing enrollment among schools so that no schools are over-crowded or under-enrolled and so that the academic program offered in each school fits well in the school building.
On Oct. 29, PPS released two possible scenarios for balancing enrollment. The scenarios are a starting point for community discussion about how best to “right size” schools. A school board decision is expected in January/February and any changes would start in Fall 2016 and be phased in over time.
The scenarios rely on three main approaches: moving boundaries for some schools, changing which middle and/or high school some students attend, and reconfiguring a number of K-8 schools into K-5/middle school combinations.
Community meetings to discuss the scenarios start Nov. 9. View the schedule below. Soon we will also release an online survey to gather feedback on the scenarios.
Thanks for your continued engagement in this important work to have strong schools in every neighborhood!
Chief, Communications & Public Affairs
Chair, District-wide Boundary Review Advisory Committee

We all know this truth: Portland has been HOT this summer.
And you know I’m not just talking about the weather. RMLS statistics revealed that July 2015 boasted the most home sales on record for the Portland Metro area. Despite the seller’s market driving multiple offers, low inventory, and some very weary buyers, Portland isn’t even in the top 20 hottest real estate markets (according to Realtor.com). So what’s a buyer to do?
Whatever you want to call it, September through November are great times to buy. Inventory is expected to rise, and sales trends over the years show an easing of competition over the Fall months. Combine that with interest rates hovering around an amazing 4%, and the right time to buy could be right now. So if it’s time for you to move to your next home, give us a call!
It’s easy to love Spring in Portland, and the fact that there are tons – TONS – of fun events to enjoy makes it even better. Here are some to explore.

Stolen: A Klamath Falls House (an actual house, off the foundation). If you see it call Klamath Falls police
KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. – Klamath County sheriff’s deputies have a bizarre mystery on their hands.
A house was stolen.
KOBI-TV reports the 1,200-square-foot home from the Sprague River area was reported missing on Tuesday, Feb. 24.
“We had a complete home stolen. This isn’t a motor home, this isn’t a mobile home and this is a ‘home,'” Sheriff Frank Skrah told KOBI.
Skrah said the home was not on wheels. It was on a foundation.
The home owner has been notified of the theft.
Anyone who spots the missing house is asked to call the Klamath County Sheriff’s Office.

We’re over a week into 2015, which sounds very futuristic. So where is my flying car? I remember somebody saying there would be flying cars. Yet, my car hasn’t left the ground since that time I took a speed bump on SE Lincoln too fast. It’s still the same car. It hasn’t changed, and it won’t this year. But 2015 will bring other changes. We’re seeing them all around Portland, with new restaurants , new transportation lines, and a lot of new carpet. Maybe even new neighbors.
Oregon had the highest percentage of people moving in vs. those moving out of all the states in the US in 2014. A huge number of those people are landing in the Portland area, so you can expect new faces and more people around town. While many grumble about the growth, we understand the draw of the city. So let’s welcome them… then encourage city planners to anticipate more housing needs and traffic flow, if they can see to that pleaseandthankyou.
Don’t forget that we can help! If your friends or family are among the incoming transplants to the Portland area, they’ll need a place to live. We often work with people moving to Portland. We will help them get to know neighborhoods, familiarize them with available housing, and even show them a commuting shortcut or two. Be sure to put us in touch so we can get them into a great home!
So, who do you know who is moving to Portland?

There is so little time left to save it but it's worth a try. Find out more by clicking the link.

"Friends of the GasCo is a multi-generational grassroots preservation group that is seeking alternatives to the demolition of the 1913 Portland Gas and Coke Building located in Portland, Oregon. The Gas and Coke building or GasCo, was constructed in 1913 by Portland Gas and Coke as part of an coal and oil gasification plant. Today the building is owned by its successor Northwest Natural Gas (NWNG) and recently NWNG had planned to demolish the building. The Friends of the GasCo was formed and are currently in negotiations with NWNG to preserve the building in place with funds raised by The Friends of Portland GasCo."
