As a native to Portland, I have a profound love and knowledge for the area. After obtaining my Bachelor’s degree at University of Oregon, I was ready to become more educated about real estate.
When I was young, I always told my parents I would become a realtor – maybe this isn’t the traditional job that children dream about, but I did! Real estate always interested me, from the architecture of each home to the idea of helping people find a place they would cherish for years to come. My journey began as a receptionist at a real estate office, to a Principal Broker’s assistant, and then on to obtain my own license. I am excited to be at a boutique brokerage, Inhabit Real Estate.
I live in SW Portland, with my boyfriend and our animated dog, Tipsy. Together, we enjoy Portland, whether it be biking to our favorite brewery, relaxing on the Willamette River, or rooting on the Portland Trailblazers.
My love for this career, helps me to strive to be the best real estate broker I can be, and my clients can attest to that. I know how important it is to be available, answer questions, help educate my clients on the current market, negotiate strong offers, and always be supportive of my client’s needs.
It’s a privilege to be able to sell real estate, in a city I love.
Katlin was very knowledgeable, friendly, & easy to work with. She was the perfect one to help us buy our first home! She was so diligent & really thought of all kinds of things that we never would have thought to ask about or consider.
Katlin helped my partner and me buy a house in Portland while we were living in North Carolina — something that probably wouldn’t have been possible with most realtors. Katlin video conferenced with us on several occasions, giving virtual tours since we couldn’t be there in person.
We ended up trusting her enough that we were willing to place an offer on a house (which was eventually accepted) without seeing it in person. While under contract, Katlin continued to help us through the inspection and subsequent negotiations. We’ve been in the house for a few months now and love it.
Katlin listed my townhouse and helped me and my new husband find our first home together. Katlin was extremely responsive and a total go getter, holding several open houses at my townhouse. The realtors that walked through noted to her that the property was priced right and was priced to sell quickly, which it did.
Based on our long list of must haves and must not haves, Katlin helped pull properties that suited our needs. She was unbiased and helped educate us on the different neighborhoods and the process. We always felt included and in the loop, which is very important to me. Katlin was very proactive and routinely followed up with the seller’s agents of homes that we had interest in. We ended up in multiple bid situation on the home we loved and with Katlin’s negotiation skills we won and couldn’t be happier.
I would absolutely recommend Katlin. She’s professional and easy to work with. By the end of the process she felt more like a friend than our realtor.
