About Julie Hoffman

I moved here 17 years ago following a visit where I fell in love with Portland's 'not so big' size and European feel. My business partner is native to the area and shares my feelings about the city's energy and diversity.

Julie Hoffman purchased this apartment in 1997

Why Julie Hoffman chose Portland

Not unlike as it was in the early 1900's showing its prosperity, our NW neighborhood has seen a revival spurred on by gentrification. As such, we have renovated this Historic Beauty over the past 15 years trying to keep the original circa 1900 feel.

In the backyard, the setting is tranquil with a great soft-scaped patio space.

What makes this apartment unique

One of the best benefits of this property is that it's in a quiet, residential neighborhood yet just a few minutes from all of the action of NW Portland, Pearl District and Downtown!

If you like to walk and explore, this is such a lovely neighborhood in which to do that. No car is necessary for your stay here.

I love the history of the building and how the turn-of-the-century character has been preserved in its details.

The front porch is stately by appearance and provides a wonderful place to relax, enjoy a beverage, and watch passersby.

Excellent rental in a great neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

This is a quality, comfortable rental for 2 people. Nice decor, very clean, and good value for this neighborhood. A nice walk to Washington Park and very close to Chapman School where the Vaux's Swifts roost in the chimney during their fall migration. Quiet, especially for being so close to 23rd. And parking seemed easier than on the other side of 23rd. We enjoyed sitting out on the porch, and the various tenants in the nicely maintained historic house were pleasant, including Julie, the owner of the rental. Julie made the process of renting simple and easy. We hope to stay here again.

Dark interior nice front porch

  • 3 of 5

Interior was painted dark. Not really very inviting. Unusually warm in Portland so we were grateful for AC but the bedroom didn't get that cool. That would not be an issue most of the year! We did love the area!

Beautiful craftsman house

  • 5 of 5

Clean, convenient location and it had everything we needed. I would definitely stay again if only to sit on the beautiful porch with my coffee and Blue Star donut each morning!

Lovely apartment in a quaint neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment located in the Alphabet District was perfect for our stay! We loved sitting on the front porch; it was so peaceful! The area has many shops and restaurants and is walking distance to several bus lines as we opted to not have a car. The owners are so lovely and made the process seamless! We can't wait to return!

During the months of March through December on Saturday mornings, you can go to the Portland Farmers Market where you'll find fresh organic fruits, vegetables, and homemade breads and condiments. There's music and food trucks and a lovely setting in the South Park Blocks of downtown by the PSU campus.

You can get to the ModaCenter, Portland's sports arena and largest music venue, and to the Convention Center on the east side by streetcar as well. Washington Park with the Japanese Gardens and the Rose Garden is also within walking distance.

If you have a car, you can get to the beautiful Columbia River Gorge to see Multnomah Falls and/or Vista Point or take a hike on one of the many trails located in the Gorge within 40 minutes. Or drive west to the Oregon coast in an hour and a half where you'll find even more breathtaking hikes and the dramatic splendor of the Pacific coast.
