Knowing the neighborhoods of Portland is what I do. If you are looking to buy, I will help you ﬁnd the neighborhood and home that ﬁts your lifestyle and budget perfectly. Throughout your home-buying process, I will be on my toes working hard for you, walking you through writing a strong offer, negotiating the best price, plus getting the most out of your inspection and repair requests.
For those of you looking to sell, I will take you from “thinking about selling” to “sold” with conﬁdence and grace. I will help prepare your property to look its very best, preview comparable homes in the area, call other agents with similar listings, and gather feedback from showings to price your home appropriately. Finally, I will use my strong networking skills to get the word out beyond the traditional advertising in order to move your home quickly.
Real estate is in my blood. However, becoming a second-generation Realtor was not part of my plan. Yet, here I am, over 15 years and going strong! My love of Portland’s variety in architecture and neighborhoods is what pulled me in to the business, and now it’s the people – my clients – that keep me here. In addition to my real estate background, I hold a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in social work. As I got started in Real Estate, I noticed a nice cross-over between my counseling background and the process of helping others buy and sell homes.
I run a referral-based business and know that giving you great service means my business will continue to prosper. Community participation is also important to me, so each year I take pride in donating a portion of my income to local non-proﬁts who do amazing work improving greater Portland.
When not working, you can ﬁnd me spending time with my husband Paul, my son, friends, family, and my mutt Edna. We head into the great outdoors often to enjoy our beautiful Paciﬁc Northwest forests, lakes, and rivers. We also manage our duplex rental in the Alberta Arts neighborhood, where we lived for 3+ years and now an ADU we built in our backyard. We currently reside in our Cully neighborhood cottage, which we restored together. My husband and I have purchased and remodeled multiple properties. We love being homeowners and take pride in seeing our ideas turn into appealing and highly livable homes.
