While Lita has a calm presence, she also loves to win–which makes her an excellent advocate for her clients.  A long-time business owner, she is at her best when strategizing the best outcome in each situation, then executing the steps to get there.  From the initial meeting all the way through closing, Lita will set expectations, communicate options, and foresee potential challenges in order to make the process as stress free and enjoyable as possible.

Way back when, Lita’s mom was a retail shop owner, while her dad was a Christmas tree farmer, and she is a natural at marketing, sales and creative solutions.

  She embraces the opportunity to advocate for her clients, and has a genuine enthusiasm for her work. Her background in art gives her an intuitive and observant eye for the aesthetics of a home, while her competitive and focused nature ensures that you have someone loyal and tenacious in your corner.

Originally from Minneapolis, Minnesota, Lita relocated to the Pacific Northwest in 1995 and has lived in Portland since 2001. When not working, you’ll find her cultivating an ever-expanding flower garden, doing home improvement projects, or hiking in Forest Park or the gorge.








Lita's Testimonials

. Selling a house is overwhelming! I met with several realtors, and Lita is the one that made the process seem manageable. She was practical, took work off my plate where she could, and overall got us through our sale. I couldn't have asked for more!

Jon W

. Lita is the best. Really. She sold a home for me this month, and it could not have gone any smoother. I accepted an offer and the house went pending in less than two days, for the price I wanted. She communicates well, is kind, ethical, honest and professional.  I felt very well represented, she looked out for my interests the whole time, and she helped me set realistic expectations. Her experience, knowledge, and desire to help people make her an amazing agent. She didn't just sell my home, she guided me, grounded me, and made the experience easy.
