Using neighborhood-smarts and ingenuity, our agents help you find the answer. We know choosing a home amounts to more than closet space, good light, and square footage; it’s discovering the place to dream, create, and express your way of life and contribute to your community. Our agents use vision and heart, matching people with a house that becomes home. Whether it’s time to buy or sell, we deliver confident representation that moves quickly and maximizes value.
We are more than residential realtors. If you’re a renter, we find the right home or apartment in a neighborhood that suits your style. If you’re an investor, we’ll manage your property, placing and managing tenants while handling property maintenance. Want to start or move a business? Our commercial brokers help navigate Portland’s diverse commercial districts, ensuring you get the right location for your enterprise to thrive.
Who cares about what we do? Besides our agents and clients, plenty of people. Living Room is Gold Certified for Sustainability at Work by the City of Portland.

Urban Gleaners rescues edible surplus food that would otherwise be thrown away from grocery stores, restaurants, event sites, farms and farmers markets. We collect roughly 50,000 pounds of food each month and deliver it free of charge to hungry children and their families through our Food to Schools program here in Portland. According to Portland Metro, Oregon now has the highest rate of childhood hunger in the nation. To meet this challenge, Urban Gleaners provides fresh, healthy food for home consumption to kids and families. With Americans throwing away 40% of their food, landfills are becoming one of the largest producers of methane gas emissions. Please help us in our mission to reduce waste and want. Visit Website
Oregon Wild works to protect and restore the wildlands, wildlife, and waters that make Oregon the best place on Earth to live. Since 1974, we've secured permanent protection for places like Mount Hood, the Columbia River Gorge, Waldo Lake, Opal Creek, and Portland's drinking water source, the Bull Run watershed. Right now, one of our main efforts is aimed at permanently protecting over 500,000 acres of wildlands in and around Oregon's only national park - Crater Lake - as Wilderness. We've also been a strong advocate for Oregon's native wildlife such as wolverine, salmon, sea otters, and gray wolves. Check us out at www.oregonwild.org and come join us on a hike! Visit Website
Nehalem Elementary School Backpack Program
More than half of the students at Nehalem Elementary School qualify for free and reduced price school lunch, and many of the children face hunger at home over weekends and school breaks. Neah-Kah-Nie School District formed the NES Backpack Program to get food to students who need it most. Every Friday, volunteers—some of them parents of NES students—assemble bags of food to go home with students enrolled in the program. The food is child-friendly, nutritious, and easy to prepare.
