Lisa has built her entire career on long-lasting relationships based on honesty and trust. For 20 years Lisa’s passion was in Portland’s food and beverage industry which included everything from owning a restaurant to working in wine sales throughout the entire Portland area (she knows this town well). As a tastemaker, she loved finding new treasures to share with her customers. This passion for “the hunt” is also what she loves the most about real estate. Pairing her clients with their ideal home and neighborhood is the most rewarding part of this career.
Lisa’s entrance into Portland real estate was in 2003, with the purchase of a 1950’s starter home in the Foster-Powell area. With her downtime, she cherished long walks and runs in Southeast PDX, casually exploring houses: fixers, new construction, and dream homes. This was another spark feeding her long-term love affair with the awesome neighborhoods of Portland. After 20 years of great food and wine, and 3 subsequent home purchases during significant life changes, she finally decided that the career she really wanted was helping others discover what favorite part of town they could call home. Lisa wants her clients to find the right fit for their lives and hearts, whether it be a first house, space for a growing family, a place to land after a break up, or a sweet spot for when the kids move out. She is ready to be your guide.
These days, when not working or watching Franklin High School sports, Lisa enjoys family dinners with her beloved man, teenage son, parents and sister. She also bakes killer pastries, practices yoga and plays in her yard. As you can imagine, she also knows the Portland food scene pretty well and loves to give great recommendations.
