Being in the sales and service industry for many years at a local screen printer, I learned that I loved customer service and working with people. When I changed careers in 2009, I combined 20 years of experience owning rental properties with my passion for helping others and decided Real Estate would be a blueprint for success.
My mother was a Realtor and I watched her create life-long relationships and friendships with her clients, little did I know it might run in the family or how much I would enjoy a career in Real Estate. There is nothing like the feeling of handing my customer the keys to their first home or helping a client purchase an investment property to aid them in reaching their financial goals. As an investor myself, I believe in the power of real estate for building wealth and love to help people open new doors of opportunity.
I understand the concept of “home” and a place where people can work, relax, learn, grow, worship, and rejuvenate. We often have company and there is almost always something cooking in the kitchen, we have a big garden at my house and there is plenty to go around.
As a Portland native, I love this city and do my part to "Keep Portland Weird". Of course I enjoy dining out or hitting up the many food carts, hiking or biking on local trails, and venturing out to the mountains or beaches with my family and our Siberian husky. I'm an artist and enjoy painting. I also enjoy playing with interior design and color..so if you want my opinion - just ask.
If you are new in town I'd love to show you around. If you've lived here all your life like myself or just a short time… you'll agree with me that Portland is amazing.
