I have lived in Portland my entire life and spent the last 17 years calling the Creston-Kenilworth neighborhood in SE Portland home. As such, I know inner SE like the back of my hand and I am very familiar with most neighborhoods in the Portland metro area.

After almost 25 years filling people’s homes with great design and art I shifted my love of finding great things, for great people, towards Real Estate. My eye for quality and attention to detail serves both my buyers and sellers equally.

As a small business owner most of my life, I understand the concepts of hard work, problem solving, and working or coordinating with others. If you want a Portland native who is responsive and compassionate, give me a call. I look forward to working with you to find that perfect home or that perfect buyer for yours whether the house be Craftsmen, Modern, Brand new or a fixer.



What my clients have to say:

“My husband and I recently bought our first home with the assistance of Martin Cross at Living Room Realty. Our entire experience was fantastic! Well, I mean, buying a home in Portland certainly has its ups and downs, and we definitely had a few challenges to overcome, but Martin was there with us every step of the way. We couldn’t have accomplished this dream of ours without his help! We’re so glad we used Living Room to buy our first home, and would heartily recommend Martin and the entire team to anyone looking for a realtor in Portland.” – Jacinda F.

“I am now settling into my new home up in the trees and I could not be happier with Martin Cross and all he did to help me get here. I enlisted him almost a year ago with a small budget, strict school rating requirements, and a strong love of the place I was renting, but I couldn’t afford another rental increase. I asked the impossible of Martin and he found me my treehouse!  Then we took on the bureaucratic mess of purchasing a foreclosed property! It took us two and a half months to close with Fannie Mae. Martin spent hours sorting out and meeting contractors to assess issues that the inspection brought up to make sure I had all the information I needed.  He even talked Fannie Mae’s realtor into getting lender required repairs done! His kindness and attention to detail throughout the process made a very stressful situation manageable. This is my first home purchase all on my own and I am so glad I chose Martin Cross and Living Room Realty to help me make it a reality!” – Mari W.

An Endless Life Force 

I love nature. All of it. The trees, the birds, the grass blowing in the breeze. Time in the woods, the gorge, the beach or in the desert are a necessity. But there’s something about the sound and movement of water that touches me like nothing else. Nothing is more instantly calming, more settling to... More

Shopping for a home should be a team effort

Shopping for a home should be a team effort between the buyers and their Realtor. Many clients will sit back and just wait for the properties that I send and tell me which ones they would like to tour. Others will also search on their own and send along suggestions. Once we have identified prospects,... More
