Background & Perspective
Current: Oregon licensed Real Estate Broker and REALTOR® since 2006 serving Sellers and Buyers in "my area" of SW Portland Metro, including Clackamas, Yamhill, Polk and Marion Counties.
Previous: Managing Director for an international business for over 20 years, designing, manufacturing and marketing gift items world-wide.
Prior: Graduated with a B.A. in Business from Lewis and Clark College in Portland in 1980.
I have had the wonderful opportunity to live in several countries around the world and travel extensively. I have lived in the Portland area for over 25 years on and off. With my perspective, I can easily say that the Portland area is one of the most livable of all places. With an unmistakable vibrancy and friendly feel, a blend of historic and modern architecture in naturally beautiful settings, a wealth of cultural offerings and never-ending culinary choices, it offers something for everyone. It is also conveniently central to much of what else Oregon has to offer...the offerings of small town destinations, the rolling hills of Oregon wine country, the mountains, the high desert, the ocean and much more.
Advocacy and Advice
Communication, understanding you and your situation, attention to detail, due diligence, confidentiality and ethical conduct are the corner stones of my practice. Buying and/or selling a home can an exciting time, however, the prospect of such can also be a little stressful at times too. I offer guidance, but never lose sight of the fact that you are the client and in control. Assisting you as your real estate broker, my job will be to consult with you and to advocate and offer advice. During the transaction, I will be trouble-shooting and dealing proactively with inspections, lending and title & escrow and managing the entire transaction process. My primary goal is to assist you in reaching your goals to your satisfaction. If you are considering selling or buying in "my area" and have any questions, I am always available to answer them and provide guidance.
Ask me about a complimentary "Comparative Market Analysis (CMA)" and "Opinion of Value" for your sale and/or prospective purchase property....ask me about real time automated searches & email alerts with full listing details for properties that match your "wants and needs", about touring properties, the intricacies of rural properties....or ask me about marketing your property, professional photography (including drone photography), expectations and anything else that may come to mind.
