You have to be a Portlander to understand the impact of this news.
It’s been a LONG, wet, cold winter and this week the sun burst out bringing temps in the high 80’s for two glorious days. Portlanders stripped down to partial nakedness soaking up the available Vitamin D. Shoppers poured out of nurseries with overflowing carts full of flowers and veggie starts looking like the lineup of sugar ants in my kitchen carrying off crumbs from behind my stove.
The weather has a real effect on real estate. New listings seemed to be popping up non-stop and buyers are flooding open houses. Bring it on spring!
NATIONALLY WHO IS SHAKING THINGS UP?
Sherry is a real estate titan and pioneer for women leadership in real estate. If you aren’t familiar with Anywhere, think Coldwell Banker, Century 21, Sotheby’s, Better Homes & Gardens.
I met Sherry in 2015 on a prep call with a group of powerful national brokerage leaders. We were soon to be taking the stage together at the Inman Connect Conference in SF. I was branded YogaBug at the time but did not yet own my brokerage and within seconds of the start of that call I realized that I was a fish out of water. Sherry gracefully included me despite the situation and continued to support my business over the years as I grew into the role of Broker/Owner. She is a class act who blends brilliance, boldness with true compassion and caring. She changed my career.
MY PERSONAL BIG NEWS
An Unexpected Proposal
What was there really to think about?
My friend Karen called me on Thursday as I was driving around Mt. Hood headed to a trailhead and said, “Hey I am going to Patagonia next year to do a 10-day trek through the wilderness and I thought you might like to come.” Within seconds “YES!!!” rang through my being. It is going to be a trip of a life-time. Ten days hiking through some of the most beautiful country in the world. I can’t wait to bring you the Portland Real Estate Update from Patagonia!
