Portland, Oregon Area Real Estate

Portland, Oregon, incorporated in 1851, began as a spot known as “the clearing” halfway between Oregon City and Fort Vancouver.  In 1843, William Overton sought to own the land for commercial development, and created a partnership with Asa Lovejoy of Boston for 25 cents. Overton later sold his half of the land to Francis W. Pettygrove of Portland, Maine. Both Lovejoy and Pettygrove wanted to name the city after their hometowns, so in 1845 the decision was determined by a coin toss, which Pettygrove won.

Today Portland boasts a metro population of 2.3 million. An array of hiking trails, rivers, and mountains set the scene for a community of diversity and culture embracing the arts with monthly art walks and numerous festivals including the Portland International Film Festival, Oregon Brewers Festival, and Portland Jazz Festival with more than 150 concerts.

Portland’s vibrant downtown is thriving with local restaurants, microbreweries, nightlife, and landmarks such as the Portland Art Museum. Like to shop? The Pearl District, a warehouse district that has been restored with shops, eateries, and public spaces, has it all and is served by a modern streetcar line.

Portland Parks and Recreation system is second to none, and the American Academy for Park and Recreation Administration (AAPRA) and the National Recreation & Park Association (NRPA) seem to agree, as they awarded Portland the National Gold Medal Award for Excellence in Park and Recreation Management. With more than 300 miles of designated bike lanes and trails, it’s no wonder why Portland has the most bike commuters in the nation. 

With plenty of things to see and do in your own backyard, Portland is a great place to call home.
