Born & raised in North /Northeast Portland to a VanPort Born Father and Portland Born Mother. My mother would go on to serve in social work with the Housing Authority and Father, a General Contractor would serve the community for over 4 decades painting homes. Some of the his projects still stand to this day. The spirit in which my parents served would take shape throughout my life and ultimately result in a real estate career that would span over 15 years. Far from finished…I sometimes feel as if I’m just getting started. I can remember being a first time homebuyer and the nervous excitement that I felt throughout that experience. I now get to relive this incredible journey with each client I’m blessed to work with. My years of expertise now replace the nerves and I now bring a relaxed confidence throughout the homebuying process and beyond the closing table. I’ve worked in numerous capacities as a Realtor, Realtist, Agent, & Broker but my favorite is helping first time buyers realize their goals of someday purchasing their own home. I’m here for it and have time today…everyday.
I look forward to meeting you!
