Portland is a great place to live, and own a home. For many, buying a home is the biggest investment they will ever make. I am a firm believer in the power of investing in real estate. Over the past 18 years, I have bought and sold several homes. I have been through 10 remodeling projects including: attic additions, bathroom and kitchen remodels, finishing basements, adding an ADU (mother-in-law apartment), a 1031 tax exchange, and converting an apartment building into condominiums. My experience encompasses interior and architectural design, bid evaluations, sub-contracting, and the permit process. It was through these real estate investments that I was able to open XV, a popular night spot in downtown Portland, which I owned for eight years. Finding the "right" home - one that makes both good personal and investment sense - is what I can help you do. If you, or a friend, are looking to buy or sell a home, or maybe you are wondering what you house might be worth, call me and let me help you get where you want to be.
