A native of the Pacific Northwest, Starr earned a Master of Public Health degree in Health Management and Policy (from Portland State University), which she used in neurological research at Oregon Health and Science University and North Pacific Epilepsy Research, prior to a career shift into real estate.
Starr learned early on that real estate is an immense wealth building tool. She is a real estate investor and seasoned remodeler and attributes her extensive knowledge, resources and penchant for creatively remedying poor design and remodeling missteps to growing up in a real estate and construction family and investing ever since.
Starr has an adventurous and creative spirit and is an admitted bargain hunter and fearless negotiator. She loves traveling, thrift shopping, writing, making music, and trying something new! Starr enjoys spending time with loved ones, whether entertaining at home or exploring Portland’s abundance with family and friends (food, beer, wine, art, music, theater, nature). The list continually evolves!
Working with Starr, you’ll see her sincerity shines and her love and commitment to the community runs deep. You’ll gain a patient listener, tireless advocate, guide, and friend. She will lead you through the home buying and selling process and enable you to make good decisions, stay centered and committed to reaching your goal.
Prior to relocating to the Portland area we happened to meet Starr on a vacation outing and took her business card in case we needed a realtor. I am soooo glad we did. I can honestly say that she is the absolute best realtor we have ever worked with, and trust me, we worked with 2 different agents for 2 simultaneous house sales in Idaho as we were selling ours to relocate. She not put in an enormous amount of time with us, but the follow through, knowledge and extra leg work she did for us was beyond compare. You will not be disappointed when working with Starr.
Starr is an amazing realtor, and I would recommend anyone looking to sell or buy a property in the Portland market to utilize her services. She makes sure all the I’s are dotted and all the T’s are crossed, and genuinely cares about her clients. I purchased a property with her, and didn’t even see the house, that’s how confident I am in her abilities.
We worked with Starr to sell our home in SE Portland. She was very helpful throughout. She gave reasonable and actionable suggestions regarding fixing our home for showing. She was instrumental in getting our house ready to sell, in organizing showings, and in finally closing the deal. I highly recommend working with Starr. Thanks!
I worked with Starr to sell my condo in SW Portland. She was absolutely amazing. Living out of state I was nervous about finding a realtor that I could trust. From the beginning Starr took the time to listen to me. She also provided a wealth of information early on as I was deciding whether to pursue selling, including relevant comps in my complex and in similar units in the surrounding area. She helped me prepare my condo for selling by determining the most important things that needed to be done, like painting and cleaning, to prepare my condo for listing. I was fortunate to have multiple offers to choose from and Starr helped me weigh the pros and cons of each offer, and negotiate on my behalf. Ultimately, it was a fairly quick and painless process, and I couldn’t have done it without Starr. She made selling my condo a seamless experience. I highly recommend working with Starr!
