More About Me

Portland grown

I know this area. I’ve grown up with Portland and have first-hand experience with the variety of life it offers—from the developing suburbs of east county and the revitalizing historic neighborhoods in north Portland to the expanding urban core in southwest. The Portland metro area truly has something to offer everyone and my knowledge of its evolving neighborhoods enables me to adeptly counsel you on the sale or purchase of a home here.

Professional in business

I take great pleasure in partnering with clients to help them sell a home or buy a new one. Listening deeply, working collaboratively, and managing the details are fundamental to how I help people achieve their real estate goals. Clients find me refreshingly professional, efficient and resourceful.
My experience as a realtor is built on a 20+ year marketing career with leading technology companies and marketing agencies. So I’m used to deadlines and dynamic environments, and bring a unique combination of analytic and creative skills to work for you. My B.S. in Business Administration and M.A. in Whole Systems Design have trained me to think strategically and holistically. Clients rely on me for counsel, ethical negotiations and a business acumen that accelerates their real estate transaction.

Value to you

If you’re a seller, my marketing expertise brings big value to you. I provide market data plus "feet on the street" counsel to help you set a price strategy for the highest possible return. My marketing plan will include social media and other innovative ways to maximize the visibility of your property to target buyers. As I manage the details from sale through closing, I will keep you well informed so you have confidence in the process.
If you’re a buyer, my counsel brings clarity to a complex process. I couple your goals with market insights to focus on neighborhoods and homes that best meet your needs. I guide you through each step in the purchase process so you get a home you love, and know that you also negotiated the best possible price.

Where to reach me

After all these years, I still enjoy Portland’s varied communities of people, beautiful parks, and easy access to outdoor recreation and the arts. Say hello if you see me running through my Rose City Park neighborhood, hiking in Forest Park, enjoying the latest exhibit at an art museum, or dining at one of the many great restaurants in town. And please call, text, or email me if you’d like help selling or buying a home in the Portland area. BTW, it’s okay to just talk with me about ideas well before you’re ready to make a move…I am here and listening.
