Biography



Throughout my over 27 years of real estate experience, I have consistently been recognized for sales achievements and was named the Top Producing Realty Trust Group Agent in 2016.  I have an excellent reputation, an established local presence and handle all aspects of my business with integrity, discretion and confidence.


I have an innate ability to listen, ask the right questions, and make the right matches whether working with Buyers or Sellers.  I work tirelessly for my clients ensuring that nothing is missed in the course of the deal process.  I am a skilled and effective negotiator who works well under pressure…always maintaining perspective.  There is nothing I love more than finding a dream home for one of my buyers or successfully completing a sale for one of my valued homeowners.


I work differently than other agents, offering high touch concierge-type service to each client.  Each and every transaction receives highly personalized and individualized attention.  Working with a select number of buyers and sellers at any given time allows me to offer first-class client service to each Buyer or Seller.  My years of experience and professional contacts put me in a position to help my Buyers see new listings before they go public and give my Sellers an opportunity to expose their property to potential buyers prior to the home going on the active market.  My personal attention to detail, proven business acumen and availability, accessibility and dedication to service has made me a leader in the Portland real estate market and that success is built by helping one client at a time.


There is no higher compliment than a repeat client or referral client.  As a results-driven performer, my proven results are best exemplified by the fact that 95% of my business is with repeat and referral clients.  I am rewarded with a long list of loyal clients who are willing to share their experience regarding the high level of service, professionalism and expertise I am able to provide my valued clients.
