I've moved to Portland about 13 years ago, along with my wife and 2 sons. Living here all this time convinced me Portland it's the best place to raise a family in the entire US. Where else can you find all these camping places, hiking and biking paths in a mild climate and close to a city as nice as this?
Many years ago, I was fortunate to study and receive an Engineering degree from "Transilvania" University, in Brasov, Romania. Best time of my life! You can learn more about Transylvania and its rich history on Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transylvania
My experience with real estate comes from 10 years of closing mortgage loans as a broker, then a banker in SE Portland. Recently I started with KW in the southern Portland Metro area.
