Desert in the Pearl

Earlier this week before going to the Eagles Concert (OMG, what an event THAT WAS), a core group of us girlfriends (The "BraPack") visited with our girlfriend, Brenda (third from the left),

The Bra Pack 8.27.2014

who just bought a loft apartment with her husband in the much-coveted area called "The Pearl District". Doesn't that even SOUND gloriously upscale?

They moved into The Gregory,

an amazingly gorgeous Art Decoish building, reminiscent of an old-fashioned Audrey Hepburn hotel in NY. 

I took this first photo outside on her loft balcony, facing the fading sunset. It felt like some desert shot, far far away in a country SO unlike America! 

 

 

Her husband told us that they eat out or order in every night and there are five restaurants in the building alone! Not my cup of tea, but they are in their element, surrounded by city life at its finest. 

 

Art, shopping, and exquisite culinary treats, available out your front door...quite a different life from the broad,open countryside of Fishhawk Lake

The Pearl District is about 90 minutes from Fishhawk Lake, if you want a completely different taste of living--I know the way there and back, just call me!

Portland Condo's Are Gaining Popularity
Brian Olsen: Lake Oswego Real Estate, Cooper Jacobs Real Estate PDX (Portland, Lake Oswego Waterfront and Luxury Homes, Dunthorpe, West Linn )

Condominiums are popular with our Oregon State buyers.

There's a strong argument for the convenience and reduced cost of living closer to Portland.

Lake Oswego is close enough to Portland's financial district and certainly nice enough to accommodate luxury condominiums for people that desire this lifestyle. Condo's offer many benefits. Property taxes are lower and less yard maintenance is required. Also, homeowners have the network of neighbors to offer safety and comradery.

Some owners travel for business. Others have second homes in dryer and warmer climates. They like having a condominium here in Oregon to stay while visiting with family and friends during certain months of the year. Cooper Jacobs Real Estate assists both buyers and sellers that have figured out what they're looking for

or

still need to work on making a decision.

 

Here's a link to the condominiums available in Portlands suburb of Lake Oswego:

The convenience of living just short distance from working in downtown portland is good thinking.

Lake Oswego is close to Portland and the Pearl District is even closer. This revitalized section of Northestern Portland is very popular. My BLOG has details on the Pearl District and please let me know if you have trouble finding answers to your questions.

Portland's PEARL DISTRICT Prices
Brian Olsen: Lake Oswego Real Estate, Cooper Jacobs Real Estate PDX (Portland, Lake Oswego Waterfront and Luxury Homes, Dunthorpe, West Linn )

WELL DONE - It's Memorial Day WEEKEND!

It's looking like Summertime around here. Mind you, we have had plenty of warm days and weeks mostly in the 80 degree range but the torrential downpours keep coming. This maintains that landscaping stays green and flowers blossoming. The Portland real estate market is heating up with the season. We are now seeing GREAT new listings come online almost daily. I'm currently looking for real estate and representing clients right here in Portland and also out at the Pacific Ocean.

In Portland's northern region the Pearl District has THESE CURRENT LISTINGS:

They range in price from $1,950,000 for two thousand two hundred thirty nine square feet (built in 2007) to around $449,900 to own one thousand one hundred nine square feet (built in 1925). These properties are condo's and in the best walking section of Portland. The Pearl is young and vibrant and many folks decide to buy here because of the high quality of life that this area provides. GOT to appreciate walking to Whole Foods Market, Timbers soccer games at Providence Park and have the option to walk to work in Portland's financial district.

Summer brings the BOOM to the Pacific Ocean. Buyers are more anxious to find a home now. We're searching for real estate that our clients want right now in Newport, Oregon. In fact, up and down the Oregon coast we are constantly looking for properties that pop on the market all of a sudden. I wake up early in the morning and BOOM...there is a NEW LISTING. Most of our clients have very specific criteria when hunting for the right buy. Others are simply looking for a good home to purchase that may or may not prove to be a sound investment. They just want to be there and watch for whales. If you are concerned about the wide range of value on the Oregon coast depending on location and amenities let us help you. We can use our tools to create market analysis and rely on our experience to guide you in the right direction.

Cannon Beach CURRENT LISTINGS:

Property on the Oregon coast also has a wide range. Cannon Beach is closest to my primary residence and tend to gravitate here. Price start at $228,000 and head on up to $3,590,000! YEP!! 

If you're looking in the North at the Pearl District of Portland or perhaps desire waterfront property in the West at Cannon Beach...we can help.

Portland Waterfront Loop: Over 2.5 Miles Of Scenic Urban Beauty
Brian Olsen: Lake Oswego Real Estate, Cooper Jacobs Real Estate PDX (Portland, Lake Oswego Waterfront and Luxury Homes, Dunthorpe, West Linn )

The Portland Waterfront Run:  Portland Waterfront living

Portland has some wonderful hikes and trails - that has never come into question.  This entire Portland Oregon region lives and breathes the great green outdoors so why wouldn't there be some of the most amazing places to run, walk, hike, or bike?  This is one of the urban trails we like..

If you live anywhere in the Portland area this waterfront loop is a nice daily walk and a "must do" for your out of town visitors. If you live in one of the many gorgeous Pearl District condos or other nearby Portland neighborhoods, then this Portland waterfront river walk would be a great daily ritual!  

 

There is lots of information online if you are interested in a PDX hike or other outdoor activity.  

The Portland Running Company is just one of those great resources as they have a lot of mapped trails laid out for you. The waterfront loop we like to walk is actually slightly over 2.6 miles long and very easy. I like the Portland Running Company's description of the waterfront loop walk:

"This run is flat and scenic!

 Start at Waterfront Park

Go north on the running path until the Steel Bridge

Cross over the Willamette

Follow the new Esplanade to OMSI

Go up the stairs to the Hawthorne Bridge bike path

Cross over the Willamette

Take the off ramp to Waterfront Park"

 

 

Do The River Walk.....

The Portland Waterfront Loop or RiPortland waterfront walkver Walk is basically a loop crossing the Steel Bridge and the Hawthorne Bridge with the Tom McCall waterfront park and the Vera Katz Eastbank Esplanade in the middle. 

Want A Bigger Loop? Pick a different bridge to cross.  You may have noticed that Portland has a lot of bridges.  You don't have to commit to just one if you want to keep going. If you want to make it a really long course, then try crossing at the Sellwood Bridge instead of the Hawthorne Bridge to make it more challenging. 

Please let us know how you enjoy your Portland living.  We always love hearing about other PDX Loops and trails - whether urban or wilderness.  Also, let us know if you are interested in looking at Portland Homes for sale near this wonderful walk.

Consultation and Staging Showcases Downtown Portland Condo
David Peterson, Home Stager Portland OR-Synergy Staging-Portland Oregon (Synergy Staging ~ specializing in vacant home staging)

Staging consultations are one of the services that our Portland Home Staging company provides. A consulation is a cost effective way to ensure that your property will show at its absolute best when it goes to the market. The results we have seen from our consultations have been consistently positive with quick sales in an otherwise depressed market.

What is included in a staging consultation? Every aspect of your home will be addressed, both inside and out, to ensure that it is presented in the best way possible for potential buyers. This includes details such as furniture placement, minimizing personal items, wall color, cosmetic fixes, suggestions for finishes, cleaning tips, and many other small details that all add up to accentuate the positive features of your home so it is as appealing as it can be to the person who will buy your home.

Although some clients can only complete a portion of our recommendations (due to budget or other factors), others have the resources to be able to accomplish everything on the list.

We recently did a consultation for a condo in downtown Portland and we were thrilled with the results. Not only did we provide a consultation, but then returned to stage the unit after our list of recommendations had been completed.

Here are the results:

Before Home Staging       Home Staging by Synergy Staging in Portland Oregon

A cluttered entry is never a good way to welcome a potential buyer. The stark white walls were painted throughout with a light, warm tone.

Everything was removed except the coffee table. We wanted to showcase a large amount of seating in a relatively small space which was accomplished with 3 armchairs and a sofa.  The sofa was moved back allowing for more space in the main living area.  The rug anchored the space and connected the furniture and the colors worked together to highlight the architecture.

A reverse view which shows how the colors relate and of course, the kitty condo was removed. The art pieces on the wall are originals painted by Nik which showcased the height of the ceilings and kept the color palette consistent.

One of my favorite transformations. The dining room had a piano and a small table cramped to the side. Once the piano was removed and all the floors were refinished, an appropriately scaled dining table could be installed. There were previously three small sconces over the piano which didn't have the scale necessary, so we simply installed a dramatic shade on one of the fixtures to give a more elegant and formal feel.

Before Home Staging       Home Staging by Synergy Staging in Portland Oregon

One of our pet peeves is seeing the wrong type of stool at a counter/bar. It's important to place bar stools at a bar and counter stools at a counter to achieve the correct look.  The new stools now give a feeilng of more space and a modern style which is more in keeping with the feel of the unit and its location downtown.

New carpet replaced old and the walls were painted. Using the existing bed and nightstands, we brought in a headboard, decor, and linens to finish the look.

By reconfiguring the bed and armoir in this room, it felt like the bedroom a buyer would want to invite guests to sleep in. There is a desk on the opposite wall since many live and work in their homes in this part of Portland.

Last Day in Portland - What a Beautiful City!
Ralph Gorgoglione, California Real Estate (800) 591-6121 (John Aaroe Group)

Last Day in Portland - What a Beautiful City!

So after Portland Raincamp Wednesday held at the Pure Space Center, we toured the Peal District area of Downtown Portland.

Portland Pearl DistrictWhat an amazing metropolitan center!  It has the perfect combination of modern restoration of older buildings in a contemporary "planned urban community" feel.  I am so digging it.

The city is so clean, and the people are so plugged in and environmentally aware of their environment.  I love how there are recycling bins everywhere you go.

I spent all day Thursday touring the city.  We went over to Multnomah Falls, next to the Columbia River, which is absolutely breathtaking.  A wonderfully serene area of waterfalls, lakes, rivers, and pine trees.  It's what I think of in my head when I think of Oregon.

Then later in the day we went back to the Pearl District in Downtown Portland to explore some more. 

I went into Powell's Bookstore to buy some reading material for the plane back to Los AngelesPowell's Bookstore in Portland has got to be the largest bookstore in the country!  It is 4 huge floors and If I'm not mistaken multiple buildings.  They have such a wide spectrum of new and used books and magazines that they have to color code each of the large sections of the building!Columbia River - Multnomah Falls

The contemporary restoration of the downtown area is just SO nice.  I could definitely live there!  The Pearl District is one of the most dog-friendly metropolitan areas in the U.S.  It is so cool to see the shops and restaurants put a bowl of water and doggie snacks outside there door to show that they are dog-friendly!! I noticed in general that Portland in general is one of the most dog-friendly cities in the U.S.

It's so funny because Portland is usually on the milder, cooler side.  When we came in on Tuesday, the weather shot up to a very rare 95 degrees!  And the funny thing is, when we leave today, the weather is supposed to go back down to the 70's-80's.  So the locals are all telling us that we brought the hot weather with us from Los Angeles, and they're glad we're taking it back when we leave!!
