Christina

Seeking: Rental

Preferred Location: Port Townsend

Tenants : 2

Number of Bedrooms: Studio, 1

Pets: None

Occupation: Administrative, Artist

What makes you a great tenant?: I am respectful, ethical, and communicate well. I take care of things and keep things clean/tidy (even with a 5 year old).

Short Story: My daughter and I moved here a year and a half ago with high hopes of making it on our own. To be honest though, it’s been a real struggle here for someone who is low income and a single parent. We have been living in a house with mold in it as well as other pest issues, which has caused severe health issues. Fortunately, I am on the mend after getting the house mostly cleaned and sanitary, but my mental health living in this home has turned on me. We only crave a clean, well-built, and healthy home, so we can stop being sick and begin to flourish in this beautiful town.

Number of Bedrooms: 3

Pets: no; but, we would like two chickens and a dog possibly

Occupation: Teacher

What makes you a great tennant?: I am vested in the community

Short Story: I am a 5-12 ELA teacher at the Brinnon Elementary School. I am a single mother raising 5 boys in the community. Two of my children have recently gone to college and come home during the holidays and summer. I have come to know many people here and have made a decision to stay as a career move. It is challenging to live here in the post-covid19 economy. Brinnon has no grocery store, limited internet access, and the bad driving conditions in the winter over Mount Walker, especially for teens who play sports and go to school in Quilcene. Given all that, the struggles have brought us all together; and I would prefer to remain in Brinnon.

Target Housing Cost : $1100 and under
