I remember when I first sat down with Nean. As with any new buyer consultation, we talked about her wants and desires for her new home. Most important on her list was a place to park her bikes. All eight – that’s right, EIGHT – of them. What you might not guess upon meeting Nean... More



The Avenue of Roses is in Bloom.  Like many things in the city, 15-20 years ago its was completely different. Pimps, crackheads, prostitutes, winos, methadone clinics…and your average everyday denizens of East Portland too of course.  Hard working people who kept their noses clean. My beer swilling, Burnside skating, weed selling friends had no problems... More


Living La Vida Williams!

Congratulations to Becky, Greta and Alan on the difficult acquisition of their new Williams’ Neighborhood home. Though it was a painstaking process with several tours through homes better used on the set of Grimm, we found a cozy, clean, good-vibe home, walkable to such awesomeness as CocoDonut, Phillipe’s Bread, Lardo, Tasty & Sons.  So guys,... More

There’s so many considerations when buying a home and making a life altering purchase. John and Joel relocated from Detroit last year. I helped them find a rental to get settled in to Portland so they could have some time to decide where they wanted to focus their search. John also brews beer, and it... More

Zack came to me as a referral from a wonderful client and even better friend, Andrew Barden. We started working together last summer before he was caught in a vortex of work and creativity. The start of the new year was a new beginning and time to get out and find a place to truly... More


Beyond the Market

The home search for Ryan and Doré began like most: searching on-line casually turns into going to a few open houses and then we started to tour some new listings as they came on the market. Things got serious when they put together their first offer on a cute little house in University Park. At $30k over asking... More


Amazing Coastal Views 


Manzanita Real Estate

Chris and Renee have been in the coast market for a second home for over a year. We have viewed multiple homes and even put in an offer…but it was just not the right home. Well, they are finally home now! They fell in LOVE with this bright and cheery 1916 coastal cottage. The home is... More


My forever home

My husband and I just bought our forever home. It doesn’t feel real since we have to wait a few weeks for the sellers to move out before we get possession. This house spoke to us in a way no other home has since I became a broker 4-1/2 years ago.  Truth be told we’ve... More


Happy to be in Happy Valley

When I first met with Andy and Alyssa to discuss the Portland market and the possibility of them purchasing their first home using Andy’s VA loan, we knew it would most likely be a rocky road ahead and that we’d hit some bumps trying to stay competitive in such a crazy market using a VA... More

Hannah and Dirk are the epitome of successful Portland buyers in this market – tough-as-nails warriors with a never-say-quit attitude! With each offer that was rejected, they’d regroup and return with an even stronger offer for the next house. They were NOT messing around! We scoured the eastside of Portland to secure them a home,... More
