Finding a Realtor you connect with is one of the most important parts of the process. You will be spending A LOT of time together! The way I see it, life happens beyond the four walls of your home. I am here to help you create a life you love through finding you a place you love to live.
With over 13 years of experience in the real estate industry, I will be there every step of the way to guide and offer expertise throughout the transaction. I am a great listener, organized, detail oriented, and love coming up with creative ways for buyers and sellers to stand out in this ever-changing market. I get to know each of my client’s needs, priorities and goals to ensure I will be a valuable asset during and after the home buying process. My outgoing nature, dedication to customer service, and ability to connect with people is a significant part of my success.
I landed in Portland from Chicago craving an outer world that matched my inner one. I wanted to be in the woods within minutes, know I could escape to the mountains at any given moment and not be the only tincture taking, herb hoarding human in the room. The community, culture, environmentally conscious, open-minded, forward-thinking city I was longing for is alive in Portland. I am so grateful to have firmly planted roots here, and love helping folks find their place in the city.
In my personal life, I am a junkie for the outdoors. When I am not working, I am hanging with my family, making tinctures or fermenting, unplugging at our cabin, running around Forest Park, camping or backpacking, hiking in the Gorge, visiting local vineyards, hitting up some live music, or meeting friends for dinner and drinks at one of the amazing restaurants in Portland. I am obsessed with herbs and holistic healing, and know a remedy for just about anything.
I work with a wide variety of clients including first time buyers, investors, growing families, and people relocating to Portland.
Jess is one of a kind! As long as she is available we will only use her for all of our home sales and purchases. My partner and I have now purchased two homes with Jess. Three years apart from each other, we had very different desires for each home. Jess took the time to listen to what we had as our vision, helped us navigate our list of desires and dislikes, and even coached us a bit on how my partner and I could agree together to make this HUGE decision. She was never pushy or salesy and there was no pressure to make a decision is any sort of time frame. She made the process as stress free as it could be, sending reminder emails for time sensitive items and reaching out to other agents and sellers to follow-up when needed. If you want a critical eye and an experienced agent there are few who could match Jess!!!
Jessica is fantastic. She helped us sell our home for over asking price, and she gave us lots of good suggestions to get it ready, but without our having to do more work than necessary. I’ve referred her to two friends because of what a great experience I’ve had, and she helped them buy homes that they’re living in today. She is pleasant and easy to work with, she is quick to respond, and she is incredibly knowledgeable on the real estate market. She’s the best!
When we started our home search, we were referred to Jessica by friends that had just purchased their house. Searching for a home in a new city can be challenging since you don’t know the neighborhoods and you don’t know what to expect–Jess helped us with all of that. She took the time to go over all of the neighborhoods that might match what my wife and I wanted. She is very knowledgeable, personable and kind. She is always on top of her stuff and is very good about giving you small tips when you’re navigating your home hunt. I will definitely be calling her next time we’re in the market!
From the first day I met Jess, I knew she was the agent who could help me find my ‘forever home’ in Portland. We just bought that home this month (June 2020)! Jess provided such expert guidance and support to us throughout the house hunting process. Jess’ knowledge of the Portland neighborhoods and real estate market is cutting edge, she is a savvy negotiator, and she truly represented our best interests in all our transactions. Jess earned my trust and respect, bringing integrity, honesty and skillfulness to all our interactions. She has my absolute and most enthusiastic endorsement and recommendation!!
Jess is honestly one of the best agents in the city. We purchased our first home with her and she helped us find an absolute gem. Four years later when we were ready to buy a larger home she helped us sell our home for $30k over asking and buy our new home for an extremely reasonable price considering the competitive market we’re in. She has helped us every step of the way. When we had a problem with our lender, Jess was backing us up the whole time and helped us negotiate the situation. Jess is experienced, thoughtful and an all around amazing person and agent. We highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell in the Portland area.
I am a repeat client of Jessica’s and trust me when I say that she is as good as it gets. Two times now she has helped me to find a perfect house given my needs, budgets, and desired locations. She is always on top of things and great at explaining some of the more confusing aspects of the home buying process to the layperson (me). She is an expert on the Portland housing market and is adept at spotting the gems and the not-so-great homes. Whether you’ve house hunted in the past or especially if this is your first time looking, go with Jessica! Believe me, you’ll be happy you did.
Highly recommend! Jess helped me purchase a home while living in another state and the process could not have gone better. Jess treats her clients like family and working with her was so easy, she seemed like an old friend. Jess took many perfectly crafted and narrated videos to show us properties until we fell in love with one. Once we found the right home Jess used her excellent negotiation skills to ensure our offer was viewed early and quickly accepted. We are loving our new home, thanks a million Jess!
