Lisa has built her entire career on long-lasting relationships based on honesty and trust. For 20 years Lisa’s passion was in Portland’s food and beverage industry which included everything from owning a restaurant to working in wine sales throughout the entire Portland area (she knows this town well). As a tastemaker, she loved finding new treasures to share with her customers. This passion for “the hunt” is also what she loves the most about real estate. Pairing her clients with their ideal home and neighborhood is the most rewarding part of this career.
Lisa’s entrance into Portland real estate was in 2003, with the purchase of a 1950’s starter home in the Foster-Powell area. With her downtime, she cherished long walks and runs in Southeast PDX, casually exploring houses: fixers, new construction, and dream homes. This was another spark feeding her long-term love affair with the awesome neighborhoods of Portland. After 20 years of great food and wine, and 3 subsequent home purchases during significant life changes, she finally decided that the career she really wanted was helping others discover what favorite part of town they could call home. Lisa wants her clients to find the right fit for their lives and hearts, whether it be a first house, space for a growing family, a place to land after a break-up, or a sweet spot for when the kids move out. She is ready to be your guide.
When not helping clients, Lisa loves spending as much time as possible with her beloved man, teenage son, parents and sister, usually around the supper table. As you can imagine, she knows the Portland food and beverage scene pretty well and happily gives recommendations. She also bakes killer pastries (that she loves to give away), practices yoga, and camps at the beautiful Oregon coast whenever she can.
Buying a home for the first time can be very stressful – however, Lisa (and her business partner Clay) put my mind at ease and made sure things ran smoothly. Lisa is such a pleasant individual and I had a great experience working with her. She is a great listener, communicated well, and gave me wonderful advice throughout the whole process. She is extremely knowledgeable and guided me through every step of the way. I know I could not have purchased my first home without her expertise. I would recommend Lisa to anyone who is looking to buy a home. Thank you Lisa for all that you have done for me, you are truly the best!
Lisa was seriously the BEST realtor. She made our search for our perfect home so seamless and personal. We started the process from afar and did a lot of our searching virtually from a totally different timezone. She was determined to help us and it truly showed with her extra efforts to go to multiple houses, and calls to discuss our best approach in offers. After we reached an acceptance in the offer of our new house, she continued to check in and help us along in making sure we had everything we needed to secure the deal. I can’t say enough nice words to sum up how sweet, caring, and kind Lisa is. If you’re looking for a house, she is YOUR GAL!
Lisa recently assisted in the sale of my condo. In my opinion she went above and beyond and sold my condo quick with multiple offers. We were out of town during the sale and Lisa managed the handymen, the stagers …I highly recommend her, especially if you are buying or selling in SE Portland.
Grazie Mille Bella! I’ve been waiting for the chance to say thank you for helping me buy a house! What a whirlwind we’ve been riding, with Covid-19 and all its challenges. I’m so grateful for your steady support, attention to every detail, and your friendship most of all. I can’t wait to recommend you every chance I get!
