I was born and raised in Southern California, living in multiple cities throughout Riverside and Los Angeles County. I attended Cal Poly Pomona where I received a bachelor’s degree in food science and technology. I’ve always had a passion for food and hospitality, which translated into dedicating most of my professional life to managing high-end cafés and restaurants. I lived and worked in Los Angeles for a couple of years before making the move to Portland with my husband in 2017. We purchased our first home in 2018, a little 1907 bungalow in the Mt. Scott-Arleta neighborhood. I have absolutely fallen in love with Portland and am so happy to set down roots in such a vibrant and community-focused city.
COVID-19 had a great impact on my work-life as a restaurant industry professional. Throughout the trials of 2020, I was driven to evaluate what was important to me in both my personal and professional life. I decided to take a leap and pursue a new career in real estate, and I am so happy I did! Working as a Realtor in Portland has been an absolute privilege. I love what I do!! I feel so fortunate to get to build new relationships with people in my community and to be a part of such an important transition in their lives.
Working with buyers is so much fun! Portland offers an impressive variety of home types from all different time periods. It’s such a pleasure to explore them and the unique neighborhoods they’re part of. I absolutely love the thrill of walking into “the one” with buyers and sharing the excitement they feel as they envision their lives in that home. From buyer tours to handing off keys, and all the hard work in between, I feel so honored to help my clients accomplish their goals.
Partnering with homeowners to sell their homes is an absolute privilege. People have strong emotional ties to their homes and it makes me so happy to help clients prepare and present them in a way they feel proud about. It’s a fantastic feeling to watch my client’s hard work pay off as they transition into a new home that better suits their needs. Listing a home for sale not only benefits the seller, but also provides the opportunity for a buyer to find the home of their dreams!
My passion for real estate can be felt in the way I approach my work. Real estate is about people. It’s about the relationships that you nurture and the impact you make. It’s also about staying positive, being transparent, having integrity, following through and just being friendly! I can confidently say that I provide my clients with the best real estate services available. No matter if they’re buying or selling a home, I act only with my client’s best interest in mind. I handle the tough negotiations and paperwork requirements and ensure that they’re confident in their real estate decisions.
