Thora was our grandmother and great-grandmother. She was a little, spunky, gracious force to be reckoned with who did cartwheels and farm chores well into her 80’s. She was a woman ahead of her time in so many ways. She was also the first female real estate agent in her area and she broke into an all male industry. Even at the beginning of her career, when she was given the “left over” clients with smaller budgets, she served those clients with great care. She fixed and scrubbed and worked along side them to help them get the sale. Clients came back to her again and again and she became a top selling agent in the valley.
Now… our name, Thorasdatter. Norwegian naming patterns evolved through time but traditionally, children got their surnames from their parents, usually with -ssen/-sson added to the end for boys and -sdatter/-stotter added to the end for girls. It is in the spirit of that tradition that we became Thorasdatter Design. Thora had vision and knew how to seize the day and we are her “datters” just trying to carry that legacy on.
We would love to work with you to make the place you live feel like home. Creating a functional and beautiful home for real living is rewarding to us regardless of the budget. We understand well the need for your home to change in order to serve you well and adapt with every life change.
