It was only a matter of time before a career in real estate found Cecilia. Combine 15 years of working in the financial sector helping clients realize their financial dreams with a true passion for buying and restoring period homes and you have a match made in heaven.
Having been the office manager of a major financial brokerage, Cecilia honed her work ethic and organizational skills in this fast-moving industry with time-sensitive transactions and complex administrative tasks. This work was all about helping clients navigate major life decisions in a responsive, sensitive, and timely way. The perfect skill set for a career in real estate!
Cecilia has lived in the Pacific Northwest for 27 years. She has a life-long love of the outdoors, animals, gardening, architecture, and home design. It was a combination of these passions that led Cecilia to lovingly restore the last two period homes she’s lived in and create gardens that are Certified Wildlife Habitats.
When not working, you will find Cecilia in her garden, spending time with her husband working on their 1892 Queen Anne in SE Portland, or walking their dog Hugo. She is thankful for Portland’s beautiful and unique neighborhoods and for the urban planners who had the foresight to put so many parks in a bustling city (Hugo is too).
Buying a home is often the largest investment you will ever make. Nobody understands this better than Cecilia. She has worked with people for years helping them secure their financial future and if home buying or selling is part of your future, then there’s nobody better equipped than Cecilia to help you plan the best path forward.
Tom and Cecilia epitomize expertise and honesty, the perfect blend of head and heart. They went out of their way to keep me informed and to ensure a smooth process from day one to day of signing. They treated me like a valued team member and were so responsive and personable. Most importantly to me, they made it crystal clear how integrity is their north-star principle. Top notch services from top notch people.
Tom and Cecilia went above and beyond to help with my recent sale. With clear direction to myself as a seller and an understanding of each step along the way. She also did a masterful job of staging my home prior to the pictures for listing and really has an exceptional eye for detail. If you are looking to sell your home- this should be your team!
As first time home buyers, Tom & Cecilia were amazing to work with. They are very skilled and knowledgeable but personable, patient, and kind. We felt like we were in great hands the entire time. They prepared us for every step in the process and were responsive to any questions or concerns we had. As a result of their insight and negotiation skills, we were able to get our first offer accepted. Without a doubt we would enlist their services again.
We bought and sold several homes with Tom and Cecilia. They did a wonderful job listening to our wants and needs in a new home. They were very patient as we took our time looking at many homes. We would definitely work with them again and recommend them to others who are looking to sell/buy.
