I am a wife, mother, and native Oregonian. I studied elementary education at Linfield College and proceeded to work at Antonia Crater Elementary in Newberg, Oregon.
Passionate about business development, I changed industries and worked for ten years as Assistant General Manager of a leading event facility in the Portland area. With encouragement from friends and neighbors, I started with Summa Pacific Cascade Realty in 2017.
At this point in my career, strong customer service comes naturally and permeates all aspects of my client interactions. Even better, I am excellent with details and a keen discerner of clients’ wants and needs. You can rest assured that working with me will be a smooth, expedient, and stress-free experience; something you want to tell friends and family about. I look forward to the opportunity to serve in your journey through the real estate market, no matter if it is your fifteenth or first time through.

TELL US WHAT YOU LOVE ABOUT YOUR CITY?
The historical significance of Oregon City is immeasurable. As the first incorporated city west of the Rocky Mountains, its influence in the region is deep. It was in the parlor of the Ermatinger House, in Oregon City, that a coin toss decided the name for the new city we now know as Portland.
Oregon City is an eclectic mix of gorgeous 19th century architecture, mid-century modern, and new construction, depending upon which ‘level’ you live. Buildings over 100 years old on historic Main Street have been brought back to life with cozy coffee shops, fine dining, and numerous hip start-up pubs. A public elevator will transport you from Main Street up to the 250’ bluff where you can enjoy panoramic views of Downtown Oregon City and the Willamette River. Walk along the promenade and you will enjoy the area's unique geographical landmark, the breathtaking Willamette Falls. But don’t stop there - you are only a stone’s throw from The Highland Stillhouse, a traditional Scottish restaurant and pub.
Oregon City has so many experiences to offer both young and old, from summer outdoor concerts to the bountiful farmer’s market and beyond; it is easy to see why it has stolen my heart.
- TESTIMONIALS -
"Cherisse did an absolutely fabulous job communicating and keeping things moving forward. This was somewhat of a last minute decision to purchase and we were able to complete the transaction from offer to close in under 30 days. Would not have happened without Cherisse!! She is amazing!!"
