Sophie delivers thoughtful strategy and a deep knowledge of the Portland Metropolitan market.

If you are a first-time homebuyer, Sophie will be there every step of the way, educating you on the home buying process and, most importantly, crafting you a winning offer. If home buying and selling is old hat, she is an excellent collaborator, intrepid seeker of creative solutions, replete with information and resources, and constant calm in a given storm. Sophie uses both intuition and intelligence to skillfully negotiate any transaction to an effective end. She gets her clients what they need.

Born and raised in Portland, Sophie is a 5th generation Oregonian with a lifelong passion for real estate. She loves the unique challenge of every transaction and the relationships she makes along the way. After graduating from Vassar College in NY State, she found herself enjoying the hustle of life in Brooklyn where she lived and worked for over a decade.

In addition to real estate, Sophie has worked in journalism and as a social worker, specializing in assisting older adults in housing crisis.

Sophie’s experience in person-centered services prepared her to provide clients with a grounded space during the potentially wild ride of home buying and selling. She supports her clients in seeing the big picture while staying focused on the task at hand. Her ability to think creatively gives her an advantage, whether it be problem-solving during the negotiation process or marketing a property for sale. But she’s no pushover. Her two years in Brooklyn and Manhattan real estate at the Corcoran Group were especially formative in honing her transaction skills.

Sophie is the perfect balance of East Coast determination and West Coast chill, with a huge appreciation for the significance of Home.

The time will come
when, with elation
you will greet yourself arriving
at your own door, in your own mirror
and each will smile at the other’s welcome

– Derek Walcott

Sophie's Testimonials

SOPHIE WENT THE EXTRA MILE TO HELP US FIND OUR PERFECT HOME. Her active and attuned listening were essential in helping us consider all of our options. When it came time to submit an offer, we felt 100% confident we were making the right decision. During the negotiating process, Sophie’s social work skills came into play. She helped us all, including the co-broker and Sellers, slow down to determine the best way forward. Many adjectives come to mind when I consider Sophie’s skills as a real estate agent: professional, reliable, detail-oriented, savvy, and smart. To name a few. As a person, Sophie is amiable, honest, good-humored, and fun. The home buying/selling process can be overwhelming. With Sophie by our side, we were able to navigate the madness of the market (and our emotions) with ease and ultimate success. We are incredibly satisfied with our experience working with Sophie. She’s the best! - Liza Brennan, Buyer, SW Portland
