My name is Sydney Keister and I have lived in Portland for 39 years. Yikes! I cannot imagine living anywhere else. I grew up in West Portland in a community called Cedar Mill. I lived there until college and then moved back in 2000. Home sweet home.  I am a graduate of Public Health from Oregon State University and graduated from Chapel Hill, North Carolina in Dental Hygiene. I was determined to be a Dental Hygienist because I could work with people,  help educate patients to better their oral health, and also examine every little piece of pathology in the oral cavity. I learned how to educate and help people work through many stressful processes in one of the most stressful environments a person could be in.

After working for a decade in Dental,  I shortly realized that I was obsessed with Real Estate. I was an RMLS junky, so I got my Real Estate license. I have been practicing since 2007. As funny as it sounds, I made another realization after practicing real estate. Dental hygiene prepped me to handle stress and how stress effects people. A Real Estate transaction is a multi step process. It moves forwards, sideways, and  can go backwards. I do love the excitement and challenges that each transaction brings me. I love bringing creativity and solid communication to the table in order  to get a home closed. It takes teamwork, professionalism, trust, and the ability to never give up. You start and you get it finished.

I love people. I love homes in all parts of Portland. I love bringing people and homes together! I would love the opportunity to work with you if buying or selling is one of your goals. LOVE where you live!

What my clients are saying:

“I’m so happy. Seriously thank you [Sydney] for going through this process with me. I couldn’t have asked for a better partner.”

“Sydney Keister from Living Room Realty is a phenomenal realtor and helped us to buy our dream home in Portland.  She made the entire home-buying experience efficient, positive, painless, and exciting.  We had some very negative experiences with realtors in another state and I was dreading having to find and deal with a realtor to buy a home.  We found one of the best in Portland and I cannot give her enough praise!  She works out of the NW Lovejoy office.”

The Transformation of 97229 is one of the hottest zip codes in Portland! I am a native of 97229 and I have seen miles of farmland turn into active communities composed of every ethnicity. It is a completely different zip code than it was 40 years ago. Companies such as Nike, Intel, Sales Force, Columbia, and other large... More

The House in the Woods 

I had the great pleasure in meeting John, Sara, and their beautiful daughter Ashley last spring in Portland. This sweet family was in the middle of selling their home in San Diego, CA and was making trips up to Portland to see if it would truly suit them and their lifestyle. Seattle and Boulder were... More
