Real estate combines so much that drives me: forming connections with people, a love for our city, building community, and a competitive nature. Buying and selling a home can be stressful. I want to make sure you’re informed enough to feel confident in the process and relaxed enough to enjoy it.
For 13 years prior to my career in real estate, I was able to hone my hospitality skills with a leadership role at one of Portland’s busiest restaurants, ¿Por Qué No? Taqueria. My three main responsibilities translated directly into my real estate career. Running the catering department and catering weddings helped prepare me for supporting clients in one of the most important moments of their lives. Coordinating donations introduced me to so many non-profits who are doing vital work in our community and instilled the importance of giving back. Acting as the in-house coordinator helped me hone my Spanish language skills which I’m bringing into my real estate business to help Spanish speakers access homeownership.
I moved to Portland when I was 10 and have lived all over the metro area from the westside suburbs as a kid, to the close-in neighborhoods east and west of the river in my adulthood. Today, I am at home with my family in Arbor Lodge. When I’m not working, I’m hanging out with my husband and our two young children. We love exploring all the parks around town, going camping with friends in the beautiful Oregon wilderness, and finding a lake or river for swimming or stand-up paddleboarding. I loved growing up in Portland and couldn’t imagine raising my family anywhere else. It brings me true joy helping others establish their roots here too!
There’s not a perfect house for anyone. After you get your keys, move in, meet your neighbors, explore your neighborhood, and create memories, that’s when a house becomes your home. Let me help you find the house that you can make your perfect home.
