Licensed Broker in Oregon

As Portland resident since 1998, I’ve always had an intrinsic love for and curiosity about this city. My experience as a musician, a carpenter, a painter, and eventually as an entrepreneur, buying and fixing up older properties on the East Side, has introduced me to many different neighborhoods, homes and people. It’s also given me much opportunity to engage with the mechanisms of this city. To learn and grow, as the city has grown. I’m so happy to be joining the stellar Emily Hetrick, and Portland Home Solutions, and look forward to helping you find the right house that will become your home.
