Elaine Line | Broker

503-201-1333 | Elaine@inhabitportland.com

A native of Massachusetts, Elaine moved to Portland in 1998, and fell in love with the area.  She loves working with people and found the inner workings of buying and selling real estate interesting, so in 2003, at the age of 28, she decided to pursue a career in real estate.  It was a perfect match.  For 15 years she has been helping buyers and sellers navigate the Portland market with education, communication and patience.   Her 8 years living in the close-in SE Reed neighborhood add to her knowledge and understanding of the close-in Portland market.  She is proud to now be part of Chylese Austin's team as her buyer's specialist and is looking forward to having her years as a successful agent bring support and additional growth to the team, as well as the opportunity to focus on buyer clients, which she especially enjoys.   

When Elaine isn't doing the job she loves she is spending time with the people she loves.  She enjoys road trips exploring our beautiful state and beautiful country with her two boys, Jack (9) and Boe (6), and husband Zac, entertaining with family and friends, and enjoying the outdoor beauty Oregon has to offer.  



“Elaine Line is amazing. She is extremely knowledgeable about the Portland real estate market. We had been watching for the right home for about a month when our house went up for sale. Elaine called to tell us about a home on the first day it was on the market. She was convinced it met our  criteria. She set up our viewing for the next day. It was perfect. We put in our offer that evening, had some negotiations, and agreed upon the terms the very next day. This was our first (and so far only) experience buying a home. It can feel so overwhelming. She masterfully navigates the home buying process. She is personable and so very helpful to calm nerves that pop up during the home buying process. I would not seek anyone else to represent me for either purchasing or selling a house. ”

“Elaine is an amazing realtor.  She really knows her stuff.  She will walk you through everything that you need and she is not afraid to go to bat for her clients.  She kept us updated on every step and really alleviated any stress that we had.  We have worked with Elaine through buying two houses  and selling one and we recommend her to everyone we know!

"Elaine was an amazing realtor. This was our first time buying a home and she really helped us to understand the ins and outs of home buying. She is extremely knowledgeable, professional and just an all around great lady. She worked very hard to help find us the perfect home and then negotiated a great deal for us. I would recommend her to anyone buying or selling a home and we will definitely use her as our realtor in the future."
