Old house reno, real estate, and rental properties

This week on the Your Home Story Podcast we have an interview with a full-time real estate agent, landlord to three duplex properties, and DIY home renovator of a Victorian home for the past 8 years! 

You've got to see some of the photos of her projects!

My friend Renee and her husband bought a 1900 home out of foreclosure when they were in their mid-20’s and started learning home design and reno skills completely on their own. They’ve since redone plenty of kitchens and bathrooms, added two bathrooms to their house (with contractors), and removed a 3-story chimney!, navigated financing for multiple properties at once, and thoroughly adopted the home renovator lifestyle.

Here's the biggest project they've done--adding a bathroom out of dead attic space plus raising the roof up.

Here's the bathroom they've been working on most recently--the old chimney was here before they removed it! Love how that shower is looking!

(If you’re in the Portland area and want to talk to Renee on your house hunt, email her at renee.espinosa@redfin.com.)
