I grew up in suburban SW Portland enjoying the outdoors and exploring my neighborhood on foot and on bike.  Many of my childhood weekends were also spent at my Yia Yia’s(Grandma in Greek) home, a 1926 bungalow, in the Laurelhurst neighborhood.  This, I feel, was a great balance.  I learned to enjoy both the suburban and urban neighborhoods.  Looking back I feel it was a perfect way to grow up.


I graduated from the University of Oregon and remained in Eugene, and then began to pursue a career in Real Estate.  I began in title and escrow services and then moved into mortgage lending.  Over the next six years I learned more than I could have imagined about mortgage lending and real estate transactions.

While I enjoyed that, I wanted to expand my horizons.  With a move back to Portland in the fall of 1999, I left my career in the mortgage industry.  I started working for a few small start-up companies where I learned many essential administrative and operational skills required to run a small business.   Although what those companies taught me was invaluable, I was left longing for a more fulfilling career.  I decided to take a leap of faith and re-start my career in something I love.  In early 2004, I began my career as a licensed Realtor in both Oregon and Washington.  I am a full-time Realtor, and hang my coat, and my real estate license, at Dwell Realty in SE Portland.  When I became a Realtor I never imagined it would have turned into such a rewarding career.  I have truly found what I love to do.

When I moved back to Portland, I decided I wanted to live in a more urban area.  I purchased a small 1926 bungalow in North Portland which was in need of major remodeling.  My friends and family asked me what in the world was I thinking when I chose this fixer.  I said “don’t worry, I have a plan.”   With hard work, even more patience, a vision, and an open pocketbook, I have spent the last 17 years making this little fixer my home.

What my experience and love of real estate could mean to you, as either a buyer or a seller, is that I will be able to walk you through every step of the transaction process.  I take pride in providing my clients with the best possible service as well as attention to detail.  I am proud to say that I earn my clients respect by working diligently for them and building a relationship based on trust and hard work.  Being a native Portlander gives me the knowledge and unique insight of the city and the surrounding areas that will help you find just the right home as a buyer, or get the right price for your home as a seller.

I would love to have the opportunity to help you purchase or sell your home.
