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.

Urban Gleaners Logo

Urban Gleaners rescues edible surplus food that would otherwise be thrown away from grocery stores, restaurants, event sites, farms, and farmers markets. They collect roughly 50,000 pounds of food each month and deliver it free of charge to hungry children and their families through their Food to Schools program here in Portland. According to Portland Metro, Oregon now has the highest rate of childhood hunger in the nation. To meet this challenge, Urban Gleaners provides fresh, healthy food for home consumption to kids and families. With Americans throwing away 40% of their food, landfills are becoming one of the largest producers of methane gas emissions. Their mission is to reduce waste and want simultaneously.

Oregon Wild Logo

Oregon Wild works to protect and restore the wildlands, wildlife, and waters that make Oregon the best place on Earth to live. Since 1974, they’ve secured permanent protection for places like Mount Hood, the Columbia River Gorge, Waldo Lake, Opal Creek, and Portland's drinking water source, the Bull Run watershed. Right now, one of their main efforts is aimed at permanently protecting over 500,000 acres of wildlands in and around Oregon's only national park - Crater Lake - as Wilderness. They’ve also been a strong advocate for Oregon's native wildlife such as wolverine, salmon, sea otters, and gray wolves. Check them out at www.oregonwild.org and come join them on a hike!
