I approach real estate as a special opportunity to help you with a major financial and emotional experience. Real Estate is more than just investing in a home, it’s also investing in a community.
Some of the things I offer clients are:
Full Service broker with attention to detail
Communication is very important during all parts of the relationship
Strong Negotiator with focus on Win-Win for all parties
Daily study of the Portland housing market
Good relationships with local agents, lenders and escrow
Ability to work with situations involving 1031 exchange tax deferral strategy
Very accurate valuation of home value for purchase and/or sale
Strong marketing for the sale of a home
I serve all areas of Portland but truly specialize in North Portland neighborhoods and certain close-in NE Portland neighborhoods. I love our city and if you’ve just moved here or are thinking about coming, I say welcome to Portland!
If you need a referral to a local trades person, a recommendation for a local business or an idea of who has the best coffee in the neighborhood, just ask. Please accept my invitation to be of service to you!
I like to hike and backpack. A few years ago I backpacked the Oregon Coast, starting in Astoria. I discovered a new love for Oregon on this trip! I hope I’ll have the opportunity to hike the Oregon section of the Pacific Coast Trail as my next adventure. Another trip I’d love to make is backpacking the Chilean Coast and into Patagonia.
I have a fairly extensive background in the financial markets. I worked on the Mercantile Exchange in Chicago and was a trader for an institutional investment firm here in Portland.
Portland is really not an old city. It includes a wide range of old and new development. Exploring those changes is of great interest to me!
