Gavin ShettlerPrincipal Broker
I am a residential real estate broker at Think Real Estate serving Portland, Oregon and the surrounding areas. My clients love working with me for my honesty, integrity, and good communication. Real estate is more than just buying or selling a home, it’s about building authentic and lasting relationships between individuals, families, neighborhoods, and communities. My clients are varied and include first-time home buyers, individuals who are ready for their second or third home purchase, people relocating to our area, and sellers who need an agent who understands the nuances of a specific neighborhood. My role as your agent includes facilitator, negotiator, advocate, advisor, and expert in the Portland Metro housing market. I am a certified Earth Advantage Broker and an Energy Trust Ally. I enjoy educating my clients about high efficiency homes and green technology applications. I am also an ADU Specialist (Additional Dwelling Units) helping my clients understand adding additional living spaces to their homes.
I have lived in Portland for over 25 years and love this city. My background is in Arts administration where I first owned and managed a commercial art gallery, then founded and ran a non-profit visual arts center, and last, managed and directed a large housing development of live/work spaces for artists. I live in the Montavilla neighborhood in NE Portland with my wife, Andrea, our daughter, Beatrise, the baby boy, Augustus, our three cats, Charlotte, Opal and Kamiko, the house bunny Hazel-rah, four chickens, a leopard gecko and one small dog named Lucy. When I am not selling houses or with my family, you can usually find me at a Blazers game, disc golfing in the woods or on the golf course attempting to play the game of golf
