I started in real estate 27 years ago. Over the years I have noticed that a lot of people are thrilled to have the help and guidance of an experienced realtor who shares their “Portland style values”, including protecting the natural environment, building cohesive community, strengthening neighborhoods, and respecting the worth and integrity of older homes. Their main goal is to buy or sell their home, but they want a good experience too. That includes having a comfortable, warm working relationship with a down-to-earth person who can help them navigate successfully towards their dreams and goals.
So many years later, I’m still enjoying this work, and I’m still learning. I appreciate being a part of people’s adventures as they buy or sell a home, small plex or woodsy retreat.

We don’t like pushy sales people, and don’t imagine you do either. We’re here to offer you as much, or as little guidance as you want. We will equip you with self-help tools to browse the market at your own pace, and help guide you through the process of discovering what works for you, and what doesn’t. When the time is right, we’ll help you go out and see homes in person, find the right one, and write an offer that will beat the competition and make it yours. Throughout the process we’re there to help you get through any pop up issues that come along, like multiple offers, tricky inspections, or financial hiccups on the way to completing your deal.
If you’re thinking of selling your current home, call us early in the process. We know a lot about what buyers want, and what brings a strong return on investment, so we can help you plan repairs and upgrades before you put your home on the market.
We invite you to try out our live property search right from this website.
If you like what you see, go ahead and sign up for a free account. You’ll be able to create sophisticated map-based searches, and get automatic updates whenever properties that match your criteria become available.
When you find something you’d like to see in person, call us first!
Our Staging, Photography, and Single Property Websites
When selling your home, quality professional photography is critical to attracting attention from possible buyers. Here are a few examples of our recent work.
The photography we provide goes into a virtual tour property website featuring just your home. It also powers our RMLS multiple listings that are seen by all other Realtors and their clients throughout Portland. Once posted to RMLS, these photos will also automatically appear in other 3rd party sites like Redfin and Zillow.
