About Me

I was born and raised in Portland, Oregon and know this area like the back of my hand.  I currently live and work in the North/NE Portland area but serve the greater Portland area. My love of homes and working with people is what brought me to this career.  Prior to my career as a real estate agent, I received my Bachelors in Psychology from The Evergreen State College and went on to work in social services.  I worked primarily with abused and neglected children in a residential setting.   After about five years in the field I grew restless and needed a change.  So in 2006 I got my real estate license and have been helping buyers and sellers reach their goals ever since. Many might think the leap from social services to real estate is a big one when in fact it is not. Helping people through the purchase or sale of a home can be very stressful and often I find myself applying the same psychology to real estate as I did in social services.

I pride myself on being a full service real estate agent and will provide nothing less than the best to my clients.  I  love the ongoing challenge that real estate offers and the fact that no two transactions are alike.  My resourcefulness and extensive research ensures that my sellers get top dollar for their homes and that my buyers find the perfect home for the right price. No matter what your needs may be I will not rest until they are fulfilled. Whether it means showing a buyer forty options or a mere ten I will make sure my customer falls in love with their new home.  I know that a happy seller or buyer will recommend me to their friends and return to me when their own needs changed.  I have witnessed this firsthand and feel extremely fortunate to have such a loyal and supportive clientele.
