Realtor Erika George brings to the table 20 years of experience as an attorney specializing in construction and contracts. Principal Broker Kari McGee is an eight year Portand Monthly 5-star realtor, and has helped clients successfully navigate the evolving Portland real estate market since 2005.

Erika and Kari are also certified iRep™ agents and can help you evaluate the new iBuyer instant offer options in the greater Portland area. Regardless of the market or your particular circumstances, these highly skilled real estate agents will ensure that your goals become your reality.


We know that real estate is not a one size fits all endeavor. It’s easy to find real estate data on the internet these days, but it’s what we do with the data that counts. HouseLovePDX provides a thoughtful and proactive analysis of current market data for every one of our clients:

We know that small details can make a big difference. We consider factors you may not be aware of when buying a house, selling a condo or planning an ADU. From open permits to missing credits on escrow statements, these issues can cost you money. Let us guide you through the real estate process, from big picture dreams about your future home to the nitty gritty of contract negotiation.

We know that your “why” often comes before your “how” in real estate. We take extra time with our clients to fully understand all the reasons why you want to make a move to, from or within the Portland area. We use this insight as the key to develop a comprehensive plan for you. Don’t be surprised if we start our meetings by delving deep into your real estate knowledge, your past experiences, your goals and your dreams!


It’s a privilege to help a client sell a beloved home and move on to the next chapter of life. We love seeing Portland, neighborhood by neighborhood, through the eyes of someone who is new to the area and full of excitement. As Northwest natives who grew up together (we’re cousins!), our love for Portland runs deep. And we adore the the moment when a buyer walks into a house and we all know it’s the one: aka HouseLove!

We would be honored to help guide you through your changing real estate needs in Portland Oregon.

Kari + Erika's Testimonials

Kari and Erika were a great team. From start to finish in the process, they worked to make the home-selling experience as smooth as possible. Their planning and implementation of the preparation for sale tapped into both their skills and connections with supporting professionals. Erika and Kari  were both encouraging and realistic, and they discussed the options whenever choices needed to be made; they also gave us the necessary space and time to decommission our parents' home, and we particularly appreciated their sensitivity with regards to this. One or both of them was always available to answer questions and get all the tasks done, of which there were many. Their efficiency and expertise was apparent from day one, and their thoroughness kept us in-the-know regarding all critical matters. These realtors advertised the home and open houses in a way that brought many prospective buyers within a very short period of time, and the offers were compared in a way that made the decisions agreeable and adjustable when needed. They negotiated with other realtors with acumen, and successfully brought the deal to a close with all parties. We highly recommend Kari and Erika for all your real estate transactions.


I inherited a house in Tigard and live 2400 miles away. Unfortunately the house required a variety of services to be ready to sell- from electrical issues to stained carpeting to landscaping needs. Kari was remarkable!! She had connections to make all the necessary repairs and upgrades, sent photos  and videos of flooring sample to choose from, and of the work as it progressed. She made countless trips to the property to keep things on track, make color choices and even to water the bushes and flowers so the property would remain presentable. We could not have managed the property preparation without her. She made sure every detail was taken care of. Finally she had the house staged beautifully and insured that the photos were perfect. Her efforts drove up the selling price by $21,000! I have sold perhaps six properties in my lifetime and never experienced this level of energy and participation in a sale. Not even close. I would highly recommend Kari if you need a realtor in the Portland OR area.


If you’re looking for professional, knowledgeable, hard-working realtors to guide you through your home purchase, Kari and Erika are the team for you. They made it a breeze and we couldn't be happier with their services and our new home. They went above and beyond to answer all of our questions, and they offered expert advice throughout the entire process.  They were so generous with their time and their combined teamwork was invaluable. We wouldn't have our beautiful, happy home without their integral help and support. We also loved spending time with them, touring houses and benefiting from their extensive knowledge of Portland neighborhoods. They took the time to get to know us so they could help us find the perfect home.  They're direct and honest and will not waste your time. We can't say enough good things about them, and we highly recommend them to anyone purchasing a home in Portland.

Stephanie & Michael

In all of our years of buying and selling family homes, (one dozen in fact) we have yet to meet a person of Erika’s caliber. We found Erika to be intelligent, impeccably mannered, quietly efficient, hardworking and strong in her straightforward approach to our house sale. Erika resolved tenant/Property Management issues, arranged preparatory home inspections and 'walk throughs', coordinated minor condo repairs and in the midst of all this found a Buyer for this property in a matter of weeks. We remain grateful to Erika for her diligence and hard work throughout a stressful time for us, for her consistent professional manner and for her great real estate knowledge.

Valerie and Charles

Erika and Kari were Lifesavers for us When we Bought our House in Portland. We were moving from out-of-state which made everything more complicated, but they didn’t miss a beat in finding us our dream house. They showed us 40 houses in 4 days, which seems overwhelming, but they listened to exactly what we wanted and organized everything so perfectly that it was a fun, not stressful process. Then they helped us make the winning offer in a multi-offer situation, and within a week we were headed back with our Portland housing all situated. Their balance of skills and experience and lovely, friendly personalities made the whole experience a success. Whether moving from across town or across the country, I would highly recommend Erika and Kari as your real estate team.
