We are a dedicated husband and wife real estate team with a diverse upbringing & an appreciation for local & international backgrounds.
What Jason & I love most about Real Estate is making those deep connections with our clients by listening to their goals and serving as their guides through their home sale/purchase journey.
We stand by our 3 principles to keep things:
You Get the Best Deal in the Least Amount of Time
Jason: I am a rugged Jamaican/Oregonian who loves nature and the city.
My family immigrated to the US when I was 13 and ever since then Oregon has become my home as well as my adventure playground. When I am not fighting hard for my clients as their guide in this ever evolving Real Estate Market, I am an avid surfer and snowboarder.
All year round I have been blessed to find some of Oregon’s best set ups for waves. There’s nothing quite like Oregon’s sandy coastline that brings in a wide range of waves. During deep of winter, you can find me taking breaks from laps at Timberline lodge with a good IPA in hand. For those powder days I make sure to head to Meadows or Skibowl with my snorkel so I stay afloat.
Aside from my love of high adrenaline sports, I have a deep passion for interior & exterior plantscaping/gardening. Along with gardening I love learning about bees and their pivotal role in the world. I received my Master bee Keeping Apprentice and have been fascinated with them ever since.
I love sharing life with out clients and showcasing Oregon’s gorgeous neighborhoods, landscape, its abundant activities and never ending delicious eateries. Kristin & I work hard to help our clients have an amazing journey in the sale/purchase of their home. This is a huge decision for our clients and we don’t take our role lightly. Our goal is to be your realtor for life and bring a smile to your face at the end of each and every transaction.
Kristin: I was born in Jamaica, grew up in the Philippines & raised by American parents who now live in Chaing Rai, Thailand. About 6 years ago, I was in Thailand visiting family and was trying to figure out what was the next adventure I wanted to go on. I pulled up my laptop and typed in Google: “Where to live in America that is near the ocean, mountains, and has great public transportation.” Portland, OR kept popping up. So, I bought myself a one way ticket and haven’t regretted it since.
I have been a nomad for most of my life, living in 7 countries and traveling through 25. Portland has continued to keep me planted due to its magnetic force that brings people from all over the country & the world together; great food, creative cocktails, & beautiful landscape. Some cities have a way of making you feel swallowed up, Portland has a magical way of making you feel at home from the minute you arrive.
Once I found my bearings in Portland, I quickly fell in love with Real Estate. As a kid, we all had a theme of Christmas ornaments, mine were always mini houses. I’ve always had an appreciation for the architectural design of homes, and the meaning of what “home” can mean to each person. My home was wherever my family was growing up, and there’s something pretty amazing about seeing a permanent space reflect the meaning of “home.”
We have absolutely LOVED working with Kristin and Jason.
They are very professional. They have made every effort to ensure that our sale goes as smoothly as possible. Our house was sold in 2 days!!! Thanks Kristin and Jason. You are the best!
Jason and Kristin are a breath of fresh air. When my husband and I started looking into buying a home, it seemed like a daunting task because we were first time home buyers. We had met with a couple of realtors and after meeting with them we left even more confused and frustrated than before. But after meeting with Jason and Kristin for the first time we knew exactly what to expect from the entire process because they explained every single detail. They are extremely patient and knowledgeable. If you are thinking about working with a realtor who will help you through your home buying process, Jason and Kristin are the realtors for you!
Jason and Kristin are an amazing team that made our first home buying experience easy and enjoyable!. They alleviated any doubts or stress by providing through information on the Portland market and requirements/expectations of the buyers. Jason really listened and understood all our family needs, and was very diligent in finding the right house for us. Both Jason and Kristin worked together to stay on a fast, smooth timeline, and always had our best interest during contract negotiations. We found our forever home within two weeks, and even closed a week early! My husband and I are very grateful for all the effort that Jason and Kristin put in throughout the home buying process. We highly recommend them!
Kristin and Jason were amazing to work with!. They expertly staged our home and did such a great job ‘pre-marketing’ our home that we had three offers the first day on the market! We didn’t even have to do an open house. They were involved every step of the way and kept us informed of any and all developments. They made the process as smooth as it could be. They are very professional, conscientious, and through. Best of all they are really good people. They will always be our go-to real estate professionals.
