Kate Bingaman-Burt and her husband Clifton Burt are both graphic designers, which you'd think would make them pretty picky when it came time to hunt for a new pad in Portland, Oregon. But the first time Clifton stepped foot into their new apartment was on move-in day. "We found it on Craigslist and had a friend in Portland go to the open house," remembers Kate. "With his thumbs-up on the space, we signed the lease and moved from Mississippi a couple weeks later." The cross-country move landed Kate at Portland State University as an assistant professor in the graphic design department while Clifton works from their home.
