Real Estate was my first love. I paid for college at Oregon State University by running my own residential painting business. This is where I began a relationship with the details of a home, as each homeowner invited me into their lives by sharing with me what was important to them.
After college I was a sales representative for a large paint and construction company learning about the details of remodeling, interior and exterior design. This is where I also saw the the value of connection with not only your client, but with builders, brokers and other representatives. I also spent five years in the medical device field. But being a realtor is where my heart lies; and matching people to their homes is my true calling.
As a forth generation Oregonian, I know the in's and outs of the city and truly love calling Oregon my home. With close proximity to the beach, mountains and gorge I really can't imagine a better place to live. When I'm not working you will find me hiking with my pup, eating anything and everything possible at all of PDX's great restaurants, and either paddle-boarding down the Willamette or skiing down Hood.
Purchasing a house is usually the biggest and most emotional decision we will every make, which is why I strive to make this process a relationship rather than a transaction. I will b your trusted liaison every step of the way; listening to what is important to you, knowing the market, and using my strong communication and negotiation skills to make the deal happen.
Whatever your goals are, I want to make the purchase or sell of your home as easy, efficient and enjoyable as possible. A home is an investment in your families future and I would love to be apart of it. Call, email or text me to set up an informational meeting.
