Client Spotlight: Mattie Tiegreen of Green Tie Studio

By Ross Seligman, February 28, 2019

Clients who inspire…I’m lucky to have more than a few of these! That is one thing I’ve been really excited about this year: all the amazing Portland business owners I have as clients and friends, and finding ways to share them with you. Meet Mattie and Jon. Some months ago, this duo welcomed a new addition to the family (the ever-adorable Zuri), and we helped them find a new home. Now, these three are settled in their new house, and what a gorgeous home they’ve created. 

Introduced to me by my friend and go-to stager extraordinaire, Kat, Mattie is a person with so many talents. Professionally she’s a graphic designer, brand expert, blogger, social media mastercoach for other entrepreneurs, and owner/mastermind of Green Tie Studio, a full-service design house based in Portland offering “thoughtful brand messaging and design that connects with your audience so you can focus on what you do best for your small business.”

After getting to know Mattie and seeing some of her work, it’s clear her design biz is one to watch. I asked Mattie some questions so you could get to know her too. We have a common thread…we’re drawn to big ideas, to solving problems. I see such similarity in her creation of Forth Guide (read on to find out more) and my idea for Sphere, both creating the tools we wish we had when starting out in our respective businesses (and both having our best ideas in the shower). Mattie is so awesome, and my hope is by reading on maybe you find that graphic designer, branding specialist, and friend you’ve been looking for!

Ross Seligman moved to Portland in 1999 after accidentally discovering this oasis of a city in a nationwide desert of strip malls and sprawl. Ross likes to call Portland the "land of opportunity." Why, you ask? Where else can you be a successful real estate broker while simultaneously leading a double life as a musician? That would definitely be a bizarre combination in New Jersey but, in Portland, quite ordinary. In Portland, one expects that their straight-laced accountant is secretly oil painting between Yoga classes. From the moment he arrived in Portland, Ross quickly fell in love with the vibrant energy of the people, gorgeous homes and neighborhoods, and exploding arts scene. Deciding to embrace it all, Ross became an active real estate broker and quickly immersed himself in the city culture. Working with premier Portland boutique company Living Room Realty, Ross is well known for his accessibility, integrity, professionalism, knowledge of the market, and passion for Portland. When he is not busy representing clients or studying market trends, you can find Ross playing music around the city, hiking and camping in the unparalleled beauty of the Pacific NW, and spending as much time with friends and family as possible. Ross Seligman also appeared on Broadway at the Lyceum Theater in NYC as Janis Joplin's guitarist in "A Night With Janis Joplin".
Ross and his "Own It Portland" team are known for their passion for people and real estate. They are enjoying Portland's growth and expansion all while embracing the quirks that make this city so special. Ross and his team can help sell your house for the highest possible price, release you from the unpredictable rental market and secure your dream home as a buyer. They will answer any questions about the Portland real estate market and process, all while making you feel part of a strong team. With hundreds of home sales closed representing buyers and sellers all throughout the Portland Metro Area, Ross and The Own It Portland team have a proven track record of outstanding, top level service and results. Whether it is receiving keys in your hand or top dollar for your home sale, Ross and and his team are the go-to real estate pros for Portland and would love to help you achieve your goals, surpassing expectations every step of the way.
