Which Portland neighborhood do you call home? Or, are you Moving to Portland?
As a Portlander for over 35 years, I am still exploring the bounty of beauty this area has to offer. I am a EcoBroker Realtor and specialize in older homes in close in NE, N and SE Portland. With over 14 years in the industry, I have the knowledge and expertise to assist home buyers and sellers through their transition and on to a smooth closing.
What do you love about Portland?
What is there NOT to love about this great city! With only 1 1/2 hours to the beach, The Gorge just down the road, Mt. Hood an hour and a half away and the desert within 2 hours, the diversity is amazing! Portland is clean, green, with plenty of culture, arts and fabulous locally owned restaurants. The people are friendly and the transportation system easy to navigate. I can't imagine a better city in which to live.
I enjoy a wide range of music but some of my favorites are Blues, Zydeco, Indie and 80's Rock.
What's your favorite Portland neighborhood and why?
Do I have to pick just one? As a realtor, I appreciate so many of our neighborhoods. Here are a few favorites:
