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.
We spent 8 weeks with another realty group before being referred to KC. We had NO IDEA what we were missing. She was strategic, competitive, compassionate, and always put us a step ahead of our competition. Through the entire process, KC was knowledgeable, professional, and honest, even when she had to tell us things we didn’t want to hear. We could trust her completely. We can’t thank her enough. We are moved in to our dream home, and it’s 100% thanks to KC.
KC was incredibly helpful and insightful from beginning to end. She was always available for a question and was constantly working to find houses that fit my criteria. When it came to the closing process she had everything laid out in an easy to understand manor. I can not recommend her highly enough.
KC is an absolute pro and made our house buying process so much more relaxing than I expected. She had answers to our questions every step of the way. More importantly she really cared about finding a great fit for our growing family. KC is fun, kind, knowledgeable, gets back to you right away, and is great with negotiations. I’m so thankful she was our agent. We love our house. The whole process was a very positive experience thanks to her calm and enthusiastic nature, clear communication, and expertise in both the housing market and the Portland area.
Working with KC to purchase our first house was the best experience I could’ve hoped for in stepping into a high-stress, complex, and intimidating but ultimately exciting and rewarding process. KC worked hard to ensure that we moved through the process of searching for, bidding on, and closing on a home feeling well-informed and advocated for. She was always available to answer our questions and remained incredibly responsive; was diligent at doing research and follow up where needed; and had great questions for us that helped guide us in making this significant decision and transaction.
From excitedly touring new homes and finding new prospects for our very specific criteria, to being flexible with our schedules and communicative across multiple platforms, to always having recommendations or knowing who to ask as we went about finding lenders, contractors, and other vendors/service providers – we were in good hands the whole way through. We knew we were choosing to buy in an extremely competitive market, and KC’s approach to working thoughtfully and compassionately with us as clients always made us feel at ease and that we would find the right place to call home. KC is an active and caring realtor to work with that brings a lot of heart and passion to her work. We’re so delighted with the house we now get to call our home, and KC made this an incredibly smooth and clear journey. We highly recommend working with her!
