I’ve been working as a Realtor since 2007. My goal always is to help my clients to ensure that they are making decisions about real estate that best meet their needs and wants. I never push clients into a purchase or sale that they don’t feel good about. I am here to counsel and advise but, most importantly, I am here to listen. I specialize in helping urbanites buy and sell in Portland’s inner core.
A Michigan transplant, I have been living in beautiful Portland since 1998. I’ve watched this city grow from a relatively quiet little city sandwiched between Seattle and San Francisco, to it’s own distinctly cool enclave with walkable, accessible neighborhoods and surge of small business development. As a full-time Realtor, I am immersed daily in the real estate happenings in rapidly growing Portland. I know the neighborhoods inside and out which is in no small part due to the fact that I bike commute as much as possible. I never cease to be amazed at the neighborhood gems that can be found when I’m on my bike. I feel incredibly fortunate to live in a place where I can bike and be a Realtor at the same time.
My interest in real estate and, in particular, old homes, began when I was a child. One of my favorite things to do was to go on walks with my aunt along Lake St. Clair and into some of the Detroit area’s most historic neighborhoods. There we would see an incredible array of home styles which included Tudor, Roman and Greek Revival, Georgian and Dutch Colonial, Arts and Crafts, Italian Renaissance and Craftsman. I loved the grandeur of these homes and have been smitten with old homes ever since. After working with several architect clients, I’ve also come to love and appreciate the smart, clean lines of modern design. There are new homes and then there are smartly designed, architectural beauties.
I aim not to just be your Realtor, but a trusted resource long after the transaction closes. I can help you with restaurant recommendations, biking routes and everything in between. I live and play in this lovely city and and am always happy to share my knowledge and resources.
