Whether it’s scaling Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, Africa, heading out to the Oregon coast, or buying and selling homes, there’s one thing you should know about me–I am always up for an adventure.

After moving around the country for much of my life, I have called Portland my home since 2002. In 2006, I bought my first of two houses in the Kenton neighborhood. While running around with my realtor, I was immediately hooked on the thrill of discovering small, but growing neighborhood pockets and experiencing how different a home could present online versus seeing it in person.

I know firsthand the process of searching for a home can have its fair share of ups and downs, but I also know that the hunt, excitement and possibility of getting into that special home is palpable. Through my careful listening skills, I take the time to get to know each client as I would a friend and I take special care in becoming familiar with what’s important now and in the the future to get a realistic vision of what they want in a home. Sometimes, it’s a move for a shorter commute, needing a mud room for the dog or looking for a garage that’s bigger than the house. Other times, it’s simply finding a gem of a fixer in a walkable neighborhood. Whatever the case may be, I’ll help you find it. 

If you’re selling, I will help you get your home ready through tips on simple spruce-ups and DIY staging or, if you’re going with a pro, I have vetted stagers, landscapers, cleaners, carpet installers, handy people and general contractors that I completely trust to help make your home shine. 

My specializations include being an Earth Advantage Broker and an ADU Specialist. Both of these designations have given me a greater understanding of higher efficiency products, sustainable upgrades and financial incentive information that I can pass along to clients. I’m also partnered with my longtime friend (and my former listing agent!), Amanda Haworth, here at Living Room Realty, so you’ll have two trusted, diligent agents working hard for you. 

Ready for your adventure in home buying or selling? Give me a call! I’d love to help you, too. 

What Suzie’s clients are saying: 

“My wife, daughter and I had a short time frame to locate and purchase a home in Portland.  With Suzie’s assistance, we were able to visit more than 20 homes over a weekend, evaluate the homes reviewed, and make an offer, which was accepted.  But for Suzie’s help, I do not think that we could have gone from looking to closing on the purchase in 3 months.  If you are looking for a dedicated, hard working real estate professional, you need look no further than Suzie Mayes.”
