JUST CLOSED: Stunning West Linn Home Filled with Custom Details!


Can you believe this gorgeous West Linn home that we just closed on!? I first helped my clients purchase their starter home in NE Portland a few years ago. Now that their family has started growing, they were in need of a little more room, and a space they could grow into. We started the hunt for the perfect location and a home with plenty of space and special modern touches. Spoiler—We found it!


After several home tours, the couple toured and fell in love with this property. The home itself was initially constructed by a builder for his family and showcases a open and bright concept. Even the finishes are unique and not the normal “new construction” finishes you usually see. It is so rare to find a home this beautifully constructed and perfectly unique.

Finding this home was such a joy to me. I geeked out as much as my clients did! They truly scored with this one of a kind West Linn home. Congratulations to you both! It was a pleasure working together again and I can’t wait to see how you make this space your own!

Listing Details: Impeccable home w/views of St. Helens, Mt Adams & the valley from 3 lvls. Fall in love w/the open & bright concept, high-end finishes. Gourmet kit w/ss gas apps, quartz & lg island. Spacious en suite w/private deck, lg walk-in closet, soaking tub, dbl sinks & lg concrete shower. Lg lot & private setting. Workshop in garage allows for creative projects. ADU potential & unfinished 4th lvl. Local builder built this home for his family. Great care to detail & no expense spared! Listing courtesy of Ariel Sasser with Property Group NW.

We’re Closed! Rare End Condo Unit in Liberty Oaks

We just closed on a rare end condo right in Tualatin last week, thanks to some quick-moving buyers who wrote a strong offer even before the open house. I put up the listing live on Friday at 4 pm, had the showing at 6 pm, and by 8 pm, an offer was already made and accepted! That’s how fast homes are moving in Portland right now.

We put in a lot of work to get this home ready for listing, but renovating the flooring and updating the kitchen with granite countertops, subway tile backsplash, and a large island were clearly worth it—we sold $12,000 over list price! I’m sure the buyers are going to love the towering ceilings, cozy gas fireplace, and carefully landscaped yard.

We’re Closed! Cozy Home with Secret Gardens in North Portland

This lovely listing located off of N Polk was initially purchased by a sweet couple I helped back in 2014. It was the perfect starter home for them and boasted a big yard. In their time there, they expertly transformed their gardens into a blooming oasis, and it is nothing short of gorgeous. I was so stunned to see it completely transformed when they contacted me in the last few months to help them sell.

Even though my clients were sad to leave, they have the chance to pick up some traveling nursing gigs and are hitting the road with their 2-year-old daughter. What an amazing opportunity! Now, this cozy home is home to new owners who I’m sure are already in love with this carefully crafted space, from the beautiful hardwood floors & charming gas stove to the gardens outside. The location provides the perfect space to raise a family and is minutes away from historic St Johns and Pier Park.

We collaborated on updates to get the home ready to list.  All new countertops and backsplash are just a few of the renovations added. Within three days, we had multiple offers and sold $20,000 over the list price! I’m so excited to see my clients heading on to new adventures and am overjoyed to be a part of a new family’s home buying journey.

Listing Details: Sweet, move-in ready St Johns ranch! Beautiful hardwood floors and charming gas stove in the light-filled living room. Efficient kitchen with new countertops and backsplash. Three bedrooms with ample closet space and half bathroom off the master. New roof in 2018. New high-efficiency furnace, water heater, electric panel, sewer and water lines in 2014. Upgraded insulation and vinyl windows. Minutes to historic St Johns, Cathedral Park, and Pier Park. Enjoy your summer at home in the lovely garden and pergola covered patio. This one has it all!

CLOSED: Custom-Built Traditional in West Linn

The listing details say it all—this will be the perfect home to quarantine in! I’m so honored to have facilitated this transition for two good friends. I met Lisa years ago when I joined Women in Financial Services.  We became fast friends and she’s even my insurance agent! When she and her husband John approached me about selling their Tualatin condo and moving into this immaculate new home, I was so excited to help them through such a big transition.
We found the perfect, and can I say perfectly luxurious, traditional home right in West Linn. Immaculately kept with huge rooms and an open floor plan, soaring ceilings, and extensive hardwood floors. There’s even a built-in home theatre! It really could not get better—oh wait, unless you add an ensuite spa-inspired bathroom in the master, an upscale media room, AND a river view! I think there’s no chance Lisa and John will be bored in their new home.
John and Lisa, it was an absolute pleasure, and congratulations on your new home!

LISTING DETAILS: PERFECT HOME TO QUARANTINE IN. Custom-built traditional on a private 1/2 acre. Immaculate & high-end. 4 bedrooms, den, bonus rm, home theater, wine & exercise room. Open floor plan, high soaring ceilings, extensive hardwood floors, Granite kitchen w/SS appliances & built-in fridge, sound system, master suite w/deck & spa-like bath, 2nd bdrm suite on the main floor, upscale media rm, Nat gas generator, pond, water feature & partial river view. Near parks, boat ramp & amenities. Listing courtesy of Windermere Realty Trust.

Stunning Condo at the Door of the Pearl District

Serena got in touch with me as an out of town agent through my website. As a remote buyer, she was looking for virtual support, great communication and lots of info on the local market and Portland’s neighborhoods. After a number of virtual video walk-throughs in a few condos across the city, she settled on an absolute stunner. This 1,898 square foot condo boasted an additional 1000 square foot outdoor space and incomparable views of the city, making it an easy choice for Serena.


A quiet home in the North Park Loft building meant the Pearl and downtown were right at her doorstep.


You could see the attention to detail and emphasis on quality in the custom floor-to-ceiling windows featuring city & mountain views from every room.

Through great communication and a little time hitting the pavement, I think it’s easy to see that Serena landed herself with a remarkable new home. Congratulations Serena!
