As your Portland Metro Listing Agent, my primary concern is to obtain the highest possible price for your home while giving the best possible customer service.
Many listing REALTORS® do minimal work and spend minimal money to market your home and do almost nothing after your home is on the market. I think this is a travesty. We work hard and spend the money to make sure your home is marketed well with over 100,000 online views on average per listing, professional photography, strategic price evaluation, home preparation work, and many more services.
After your home is on the market we have strong processes in place to obtain feedback, assess market activity, refresh the listing, hold effective open houses and more. Please take a look at all the services on this page and above all, please call me (503-714-1111) to schedule an appointment or ask any questions you might have.

Professional Home Staging
We provide free staging consultation to help you arrange the furnishings you already own, or if the home is vacant we provide a discount on recommended staging services. Staging is not always needed, but depending on the home it can be quite important. According to NAR, 46% of buyers are more willing to visit a staged property they viewed online, than a non-staged vacant property.

If my clients are not happy for any reason, they can cancel with no consequences (this is not the way listing contracts commonly work). Of course, once you are in contract with a buyer you cannot cancel, any other time during the listing period you can give 24 hours notice and then sell it yourself or with anyone else you’d like the next day without any cost.

4.5% to 2% Commission
I believe commission should be fair and reasonable. See our full explanation of listing commission.
Over 100,000+ online views on average per listing! We are not simply on all the tens of thousands of real estate websites, we pay extra to the top real estate sites in the country to push your listing forward, so it gets found faster and more often.
95% of buyers find their next home online. I list on thousands of websites and pay extra to feature your home on the top websites in the nation, providing more online exposure than any Portland listing agent I’ve found. Read the National 2017 Report explaining what exactly makes a home sell.
Twice a month I send out a detailed report to each of my listing clients showing all the marketing data.
This amount of internet exposure coupled with full service, professional representation has led to faster and higher priced sales and overall success. In 2016, 151 of my homes sold in less than 30 days on market and 81 in the first weekend!

We respond to every online buyer inquiry on your home in less than 5 minutes, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week! Research shows the internet attention span is 5 minutes or less. If a real estate agent takes more than 5 minutes to respond to a buyer’s inquiry they have an 80% less chance to connect with that buyer. Since the vast majority of home sales are due to internet marketing, our team goes the extra mile and responds to every buyer (with a real person) in three minutes or less (24 hours a day, 365 days a year).
