My husband and I were in an unusual situation when buying a house, with me a self-employed consultant just having re-entered the workforce after taking time off to deal with a family health issue, my husband still in training, and us expecting our first baby! Parvaneh connected us to a wonderful mortgage broker who was able to find us a lender at a great interest rate despite our unusual circumstances, and she also gave us really good and wise advice which - maybe along with a dose of luck - helped us get an offer accepted on a great house in a hot SE Portland neighborhood without going over asking price, despite there being 7 other offers. All while being friendly and fun to work with. We moved in 3 weeks before the baby was born and feel so lucky to be here. Thank you, Parvaneh!
