Living Beaverton - Your guide to everything Beaverton


Your first home together

You have started to plan your wedding! But have you started to plan for your future? The marriage doesn't end with the wedding! You need a place to live and to let the marriage dream thrive. That is why I've started this BLOG, to help couples realize the dream of homeownership and long lasting marriages.

One of the biggest mistakes brides and grooms make when they first get married is one of them moves into the others home. A marriage is a fresh start in life and moving into a spouse's residence can be a stressful burden on a marriage. A person has their personal touches to a home and when the other moves in, what is the first thing they do? They redecorate! This can be a touchy subject or feel like an invasion and can lead to arguments. But if you get a brand new home you can decorate it together and grow the home together as you grow your marriage.

About Me - I've worked with couples getting married for 18+ years now and can't be happier than seeing them succeed in life. The wedding of two people is one of the happiest days in their lives, and to be invited to be a part of their lives is an honor that fills my heart with joy and excitement. Remember, "Home is where the heart is". I want to help every couple find their perfect home!
