Originally from coastal Georgia, Portland has been my home since 2001. I am the wife and daughter of military veterans. Married to an Oregon native, we raised our blended family in the Creston-Kenilworth neighborhood in SE Portland.

I have a background in the legal field and a degree in Administration of Justice from Portland State University which has helped cultivate an attention to detail and open communication style that is collaborative and transparent.

My work with Living Room Realty started over 10 years ago as an administrator where I helped meet many of the challenges of growing a company while staying true to our community-focused values that set us apart.

I am proud to have played a key role in helping Living Room become the first real estate office on the West Coast to be B-Corp certified. Ask me about it!

As an agent, my primary goal is to ensure my clients find the right house for their needs. As a people person, if I can build relationships that go beyond closing, I’m doing it right. I’m always looking for someone to drag to one of my favorite gardens with me!

When I’m not geeking out over houses, I love live music, cooking and dining, community festivals, backyard gardening, visiting neighborhood gardens, hiking and visiting the Oregon coast.

Katherine's Testimonials

. We met Katherine somewhat serendipitously at an open house for a home we knew we couldn't afford (you know, just daydreaming). We ended up talking to her until the open house ended, at which time she offered to show us houses in the area that were within our budget. Katherine was very kind and explanatory about the whole process, which is great because we are new to home buying. From that day on, she did an amazing job making time for us - doing house visits in every corner of Portland and answering our frequent questions. She was early to every house viewing. I'm happy to say that, after weeks of searching and navigating a confusing and stressful housing market, we closed on a house we love. Many thanks to you Katherine for being so supportive in helping us find a home!
