CLIENT TESTIMONIAL FROM TIANNA

Thank you Ryan and Tianna for the opportunity to help you and the wonderful Testimonial!

Looking for the home of your dreams? Rachel is amazing!! When I heard about a friends experience buying their first home I knew I needed Rachel as my real estate agent! As a first time home buyer knowing little about the process, my boyfriend and I were nervous about all the little details. Rachel  educated and guided us through the entire buying process and provided helpful information to us in our first meeting. She’s very professional ,personable, and a go getter! We found our dream home within a few weeks with persistent searching. With the competitive market, we were nervous about making our offer. Rachel made sure to prepare our offer putting our best foot forward which ultimately got us the home! I couldn’t be happier with our entire experience and would recommend anyone looking to find their dream home to Rachel. -Tianna Maslowsku

 

 

5 Places to use patterns and 2 places to avoid them

https://i.pinimg.com/736x/09/d2/bc/09d2bcc1425daeab01bd343472e24236.jpg

Some people love them, some people hate them. But there’s always room for a little pattern in your home’s interior décor.

Use patterns

Towels and napkins
Small bits of fun prints can add character to a plain kitchen. Dish towels and cloth napkins are easy to switch out, making it simple to change colors in your kitchen. Don’t be afraid to try floral, stripe or geometric designs and rotate them regularly.

Outdoor furniture cushions
While your patio furniture should be sturdy and timeless, the cushions and pillows can be anything you like. Change them with the season or just because chartreuse is your new favorite color. Bold floral prints and bright colors work well outside.

Throw pillows
Throw pillows can take a living area from “blah” to “wow!” Pair pillows touting small prints with solid pillow partners. If you’re feeling extra edgy, a texture like fur or denim can add another dimension to your living room.

Kitchen backsplash
The backsplash can transform a kitchen. Try a bright, hammered copper or glass tiles to bring light and energy into the space. Have fun with this change by choosing a unique material that can be the room’s focal point.

Curtains
Curtains are a prime place to incorporate large, bold prints. Complement busy patterns in curtains with solid-color accessories in the same shades to avoid making the space look too busy.

Avoid patterns

All four walls
Too much of a print can make a room feel cluttered. Try accenting one wall with a bold pattern, because a room full of prints can be hard to look at and even harder to update.

Couches
A patterned couch is usually best left on the showroom floor. As an investment piece, couches should be more neutral than trendy. Most prints go out of style within two to three years, so don’t let the appeal of your couch expire that quickly.

HOW MUCH HAS YOUR PROPERTY INCREASED IN VALUE? LOOK HERE!

October appraisation values for areas

Here is a handy dandy little chart to show you how much in % (percentage) properties has increased in value (appreciated) on average in different Portland-Metro areas. Take a look at those numbers! Where else can you get even 6% return on your investment? And 6% is the lowest number on the appreciation chart.

Notice the days on the market; how long it takes to get an offer once your home is put up for sale. Not too shabby! We are seeing most homes, if they are priced fairly in the first place, sell between 1-3 months on average.

So with this quick and dirty little chart you can see that our real estate market is strong and viable. The real estate market in 2018 is expected to still be as robust and active but appreciation will slow slightly. I foresee the appreciation to hover around 3%-7% on an average next year. Still fabulous!

If you have thought about selling and would like to talk about YOUR properties increase in value, pre-listing steps, staging (this DOES get you more money), and all your options, time it takes (start to finish), and steps involved call, email, or text anytime. I’d love to hear from you!

IT’S A GOOD LIFE!!

SELLER & BUYER TESTIMONIAL!

“I had thought about selling my home in Milwaukie for some time but never really got off the couch and did anything about it.

One day after work I took a drive to the area that I wanted to live and found a few homes for sale.  I had searched for a house with land, as I was looking for a little piece of earth to raise my family.  We lived in suburbia and I commuted all my life; I was ready for a change.  The house I was looking at was located in Boring Oregon on a great piece of land and was being sold by Sheller Real Estate, Oregon First.  On my way home after work I called the number on the sign and that is when I was first introduced to Rachel Sheller!  We talked for a good half hour and the great energy and vibe I got from that one conversation; I knew that I wanted this person to represent my family and myself in this HUGE life undertaking.

My wife, kids and I met Rachel for the first time at my home in Milwaukie.  We sat down and went through the usual proceedings of a home sale and Rachel was very informative, upfront, and honest.  After deciding on a sale date, we all rolled up our sleeves and went to work.  If you have never sold a home you are in for a rollercoaster ride.  My wife and I went through emotions of stress, happiness, sadness, and fear but through it all Rachel made sure that we were always comfortable.  We sold our home within the timeline promised and we were very satisfied with Rachel’s performance and professionalism that we continued our journey with her to buy our next family home.

The move was strange for us all.  We had moved back into my parents basement and the kids were on summer vacation.  Each day I had my Zillow and Trulia feeds going and at moment’s notice Rachel was always willing to go show us a home whether it was morning or night.  At times living with my parents again would strike the fear in me that I needed to find a home sooner rather than later, but Rachel would always reel me back and assure me that the right home would come along.  Rachel just wasn’t our realtor she became much more.  Beyond the business side to her she was very down to earth and wouldn’t pass judgment no matter what you had to say.  Selling and buying a home is probably a top 5 in your life that can make and break a person, because if it’s your actual home you leave a lot of emotions on the table.  If I had to do it all over again, Rachel Sheller would be by my side.

Thank you Rachel

TERRIFIC TESTIMONIAL FROM RACHEL’S CLIENTS!

Thank you Gabe & Jenni! I am grateful for the opportunity to to work with you, but moreover the overall opportunity to of met you and your absolutely darling family! I cant think of anything more rewarding rewarding than to be able to help such kind, thoughtful, and deserving people!

“Rachel was wonderful! We have 1 year old twins, one with medical issues, and are so busy all day, every day The idea of selling, moving, and buying was very intimidating for us. Rachel was incredibly patient with us and so understanding of our needs. She took away much of the stress by explaining everything, answering my numerous questions, and being so supportive when I was getting anxious. She was very proactive for us, gave honest advice, and was such a great advocate for us. She was always in contact, kept us up to date on everything, made us feel like a priority. I would absolutely recommend Rachel to anyone looking to buy/sell a home. We loved working with her!

Thank you:)   Jenni”
