While showing our newest condo that sits on the top corner of the building at 38th and SE Belmont, I noticed a busy Woodpecker checking out the branches of the the tree. This home has a little deck off the living room and even when I opened the door and stepped outside to get a closer look, it stuck around. How cool to be in the heart of the city but have a literal window into Nature. Only 3 blocks to Laurelhurst Park too!

The HOA for this condo covers everything except cable and electric. Perfectly positioned top floor, corner unit condo has large banks of windows for light-filled living spaces, with fabulous territorial and sunset views. Wood floors, tiled bath, granite counter, stainless steel appliances and in-unit washer/dryer.  A 94 walk score and 100 bike score! The building features deeded, covered, secure, parking and bike storage! Eco-roof, hydronic radiant floor heat, A/C, energy efficient appliances, building is energy star rated. Elevator. NO rental Cap.

Broker in Oregon & Business Development

I’ve been a full time realtor since 1993, and after more than 25 years in the business and thousands of transactions under my belt, I still love it!  At Living Room Realty I facilitate individual agents' business development, am a member of the Broker Advisory Group which provides direction for the company, and lead a Roommates group which allows agents to share ideas for improving their business practices. I feel very fortunate to come to work every day and do what I love. I grew up here in SE Portland, attended our neighborhood schools and live just five minutes from my childhood home. I never even thought about moving away. I love to travel, but Portland is my home. When I’m not working, I enjoy volunteering at my kids’ schools. I’m known for throwing an epic class party! Before I had kids, I never knew I’d also enjoy being a “soccer Mom” as much as I do. When I have a free moment, I love to hop on my bike and ride down to the waterfront from Mt. Tabor where I live. Biking through the neighborhoods is a nice way to stay in touch with the city, and also stay in shape! When I feel like I want more of a challenge, I’ll add the climb up Mt. Tabor. It’s good ride with the reward being the view from the top of the park. Besides Portland, my family’s second home in Central Oregon is my favorite place. We escape there every chance we get, and love to explore the endless hiking trails, lakes, rivers and other natural wonders the high desert has to offer. Snowboarding on Bachelor is at the top of our winter activities list. We just love nature. Our two dogs love it too, and we take them almost everywhere with us! I’m an avid gardener. Meandering through Portland Nursery, even if I don’t buy anything, almost feels like a mini vacation. My Mom taught me a lot about tending a garden, but I also might have gotten my interest in gardening from my ancestors who were among the first settlers of Sauvie Island. My maiden name is Charlton, and a few of us still live and work there. There’s even a road named after my family. The kids think that’s pretty cool. My family has deep roots in Portland. I’m a true Oregon native, local SE girl, Mom and business woman. And, I’m passionate about working in the city and neighborhoods that I love. ADDITIONAL AWARDS & AFFILIATIONS
