About Living Room Realty

We Get It

Choosing a real estate agent is a big decision. Your home is one of the most important investments you’ll make. We understand that. You need someone you can trust and rely on—someone with integrity and skill, who will put your needs first and be a true guide throughout the buying and selling process, and beyond.

At Living Room Realty, we listen and ask the right questions. We’re committed to being your most effective advisor and advocate. Our goal is your success.

Relationships are the foundation of our business.

The first property you sell or buy with us is only the beginning of our connection. We build and sustain relationships with clients by being consistent and giving our best throughout each transaction and every day after that. We always think beyond a single sale and work to become an essential resource for our clients, whether they’re currently buying or selling or simply living in a house they love. Our dedication, experience, knowledge, and network enable us to help our clients with whatever they need, whenever they need it.

Living Room Realty is a full-service real estate brokerage with four offices in Portland, one at the coast in Manzanita, and one in Vancouver, WA.
