Agent Profile Picture

Kester Wise

Principal Broker


If you want to hear Kester speak passionately just ask him his opinion about Portland.

Kester and his wife chose Portland as their permanent home because they love its incredible access to nature, family friendly vibe, highly rated public schools, hip urban scene, and perhaps most of all, the fantastic people! Kester has been working with buyers and sellers of residential real estate for more than a decade. He has extensive real estate knowledge and experience due to his background as a Managing Broker, Realtor, Investor, Developer and Attorney.

Kester earned his law degree from Georgetown University Law Center and his Bachelor of Arts degrees in English and History from U.

C. Berkeley. He is a member of the National, Oregon and Portland Metropolitan Associations of Realtors. This combination of skill sets and experience allow him to provide superior service to his clients in all aspects of the real estate transaction, including negotiation, contract writing, and risk management. In addition to being a seasoned Realtor Kester is also involved in real estate investment and development, participating in projects that vary in scope from quick cosmetic rehabs to the building of luxury homes. In his free time you’ll find Kester coaching his sons’ sports, surfing, mountain biking, supporting the Timbers, trail running and kitesurfing (as soon as he learns). Kester lives in the SW Hills with his wife Catherine, a Special Correspondent/Producer with the PBS NewsHour, and their two sons.
