I have been a Portland Realtor for 11 years and I love my job. I have completed hundreds of transactions with a diverse client base, and with each new one I draw on those past experiences. I work with lots of families moving from their current home to their forever home, as well as first time buyers and investors. My goal is to guide you in your decision-making, answering questions along the way, so that your experience is as turbulence free as possible.
What she’s doing when she’s not real estating:
I’m a bit of a bookworm, so you’ll find me reading a lot. Somehow that has qualified me to run the book fair at Richmond, my daughter’s elementary school. So now I’m trying to make the kids bookworms, too!
I’m rediscovering the fantastic and scary Shirley Jackson. You might be able to find a copy at Broadway Books and if not, they can order it for you. And the kids and I are reading The Mouse and The Motorcycle together, procured from A Children’s Place, which is seriously the best kids bookstore ever.
Favorite coffee shop:
Case Study, Crema, Fleur De Lis. All of them, really. I admit that I have a bit of a coffee problem.
Best sipping spot:
I love to sip wine at my neighborhood wine and cheese bar, Blackbird Wine Shop. You can order a case for a party or a glass to enjoy in the cafe with a bite of their yummy cheese and salt bread.
Date night out:
My husband and I enjoy spending an evening at Cabezon Restaurant. It’s one of the best seafood restaurants in town, and right down the street from home! It has a warm, intimate atmosphere, gorgeous art and impeccable service. The menu changes frequently, so we can always try something new.
Hidden Portland treasure:
When I have free time my family and I get out and hike the trails in and around the city. Audubon Society, Wildwood Trail in Forest Park and the waterfalls along the gorge are some of our favorites.
Keep Portland weird:
Hawthorne Boulevard was named after the founder of Portland’s first mental institution, which at one time was located on the North side of Hawthorne street, across from Ladd’s Addition.
While strolling along Alberta not long ago, a peacock blue shirt peeked out a window and called me into the shop where it sat. Frock is revamped from it’s original mostly resale stuff, and now carries the cutest stuff – both edgy and comfortable. Don’t be fooled by all the accessories on the website, the place has great clothes.
Style that makes me smile:
If only we all lived in Robert Harvey Oshatz houses it would be a Dr. Seuss world!
