There may be no other transaction as personal and emotional as buying or selling a home. I enjoy the opportunity to guide clients through this process, making it as streamlined as possible.
Though it is ever changing and growing, Portland remains a special place, and owning a little piece of the city is a privilege. I understand what it is to be in my clients shoes; relocating, buying and selling homes of my own has afforded me a sensitivity towards my clients’ journey.
I believe that in every transaction, it is important that my clients understand they are the driver. I am the passenger who’s there to guide, educate, and provide the best service.
My passion for real estate began early. After purchasing my first home at twenty-two, I became fascinated by the buying and selling process: the variety, the architecture, the emotions, the excitement, and the unexpected.
I live between the Brooklyn and Creston-Kenilworth neighborhoods in Southeast Portland, in an old craftsman home with my girlfriend Jennifer, and our cat Marley. We enjoy all the fun Portland has to offer: biking, restaurants, breweries, art galleries, boating on the Willamette, or even simply spinning records and brewing some local coffee at home.
My home buying experience with Shane couldn’t have gone better. Once we found the home I wanted, the process went so smoothly. He was available and responsive anytime I had a question and even had to go through some tough negotiations for me with the builders and the lenders – Always with my best interest in mind. I could tell that Shane cared and that he got to know me when I moved in and received his welcome gift. All things that were tailored to me and my interests. I’m lucky enough to have bought a home in Shane’s neighborhood since I feel like I gained a friend. I recommend him 110%.
Shane was my Broker this year when I bought my house in Sellwood. He did a great job and handled everything for me which was key as a remote buyer.
Shane did a fantastic job of helping me through my first home purchase. He balanced realism and optimism well and expertly coordinated a series of inspections and repair bids. He walked me through options at each stage and was immediately responsive to all of my questions. I would strongly recommend him to other home sellers or buyers.
