I was born and raised in Portland, Oregon, credited as a top performing Customer Service professional, skilled in problem solving and responsiveness to the need of clients. Resourceful and effective in a fast paced changing market enviiroment. I am an enthusiastic Broker who enjoys helping clients with making a smooth transition when buying or selling Real Estate.
Additional professional strength include: Negotiability skills, Patient, Pleasant Personallity and Exceptional people skills.
Real Estate is not only my occupation, but it is my passion. If I am fortunate enough to work for you, your goals will become my goals. When you are searching for a home, I will be on-line daily searching for your dream home. If you are selling your home, it will be advertised on the majority of home selling websites available, greatly increasing your homes presence in the real es ate market. Please let me put my dedication and expertise to work for you. I am the key to your front door!
More Service, Less Stress. Steering a transaction safely through escrow is a hallmark of excellent service. "The hard part isn't finding the house, it's getting through escrow." I do whatever makes the transaction as stress-free as possible. People should be able to live their life and not have to worry about their house. That's not to say every transaction is stree-free, but (if there is a problem), I handle it.
I take extra care to consult and support my clients through every step of the transaction. I really care aboutl my clients and they become "my friends" and we will do more for our "friends." I work hard to fulfill my clients' most ambitious Real Estate dreams.
I do not consider myself a "salesperson" but rather a valuable source for information about neighborhoods, schools, daycare, recreational amenities and other points of interest.
My real estate career began in 1984 when the interest rates reached the upper teens. Few people could qualify to buy homes in those days and sales were rare. Many of my peers quit after a few months. Having invested several months studying for my real estate exam, I told myself to stick with it come rain or shine. 25 years later I am still in the business and cherish the memories of the many clients I have assisted in finding their dream homes. Some have become friends for life.
Besides my clients, I have learned to appreciate dozens of Realtors and peers. I joined Century 21 Hart in 1991 and enjoy being associated with the most recognized name in the real estate community around the world.
Independence has given me the freedom to travel back to Norway where I was born and visit my family and childhood friends several times. I am able to set my own schedule for work and play which is a big bonus. My three children also have the advantage of having a mom in real estate and are all enjoying home ownership in their young adult lives.
If you choose to have me join you in the pursuit of your real estate needs, I can promise you a pleasant journey with my full commitment, honesty and years of experience.
