I understand how exciting (and stressful!)
it can be to sell your home.

I treat each and every transaction as though it were my personal home and go above and beyond to give my seller’s a great experience. I strive to maintain a level of professionalism that also feels approachable. I pride myself on my market knowledge, effective and innovative marketing, reliability, excellent communication and transparency.

Why list your Home with me?

I don’t just LIST houses…I SELL them.

1Anyone can stick a sign in the yard, host an open house with flyers and fresh baked cookies. I know that. However, my 12 year career, along with a sharp wit, has given me the ability to overcome objections and SELL houses. Your dated kitchen you’re so worried about? I’m able to spin that as a blank canvas for a buyer who can bring their own personal touches into the home (and not have to pay for it in the sales price!) because we priced the house accordingly! I have a million ways to overcome objections, and ultimately, that results in tremendous success for my sellers.

I provide an in depth consultation at your home to assess the
best pricing strategy, along with a plan to prepare your home to
attract the highest offers from the most qualified buyers.

2I’m not going to come in your house and tell you that it needs to be completely remodeled or updated in order to sell. In fact, I have gotten listings from several sellers who were scared to death by other agents that had convinced them that their house was all wrong and needed to be completely redone. Instead, I suggest easy, affordable ways to spiff up your home for selling. New paint? Easy enough. New carpet? Perhaps. But it also might be able to clean up nicely with a good shampooing. Tear out the kitchen and redo? Probably not. Breathe easy Mr. or Mrs. Seller. I want to help our your pocket book, not drain it.

My listings stand out from the competition.

3With my staging techniques and professional photography, I’ll make sure your house looks its best. If a home calls for it, I’ll hire professionals to assist with staging, decluttering (if needed or neccessary), and organizing. Once your house is looking top-notch, my diligent use of marketing and social media will help find a specific buyer profile, and target the fantastic relationships I’ve built with other agents over the past decade.

I have stellar negotiation skills.

4I don’t say that with arrogance; I say that with passion and excitement over the results that I’m able to achieve for my clients. I exercise my negotiation muscles daily in my career and with the two small children that live in my home and call me mom.

Proven and Effective Full-Service
Marketing Plan:


Prior to your home going on the market:

  • Measure each room for accuracy.
  • Provide staging advice if necessary.
  • Schedule professional pictures and virtual tour.
  • Start pre-marketing online with my sphere of Realtor contacts, past clients, friends, family, etc…
  • Tour all comps located in the vicinity of your home to ensure accurate pricing and to be aware of our competition.
  • Schedule sign installation.


On the first day the home is listed on the market:

  • Install lockbox.
  • Schedule brokers open.
  • Schedule open house.
  • Email blast to every Realtor in Portland Metro featuring interactive flyer of the home.
  • Contact local employers, email them a flyer for their community bulletin board/forums.
  • Post ads on the following websites: Facebook, Pinterest, Zillow, FrontDoor, Oodle, Military.com, BackPage.com, ByOwnerMLS, Vast, Yahoo!, RentBits, Walkscore, RentJungle, Campus Avenue, Rentenna, AOL Real Estate, Zumper, MapLiv, HotPads, Trovit, Geebo, Enormo, Yakaz, RentMatch, Trulia, LiveLovely.


While the home is active on the market:

  • Follow up with each agent that shows the house and get feedback concerning pricing, the condition of the home, etc…
  • Send seller a report of showings and feedback from agents.
  • Provide 24/7 marketing – a buyer shouldn’t have to wait until an open house to see your house. Each of my listings has excellent photos and in some cases a virtual tour to help the buyer fall in love with the home before they ever see it in person.
  • Repost ads when/if they expire online (if the house is even on the market that long, not likely!)
  • Respond to any emails, texts, or phone calls from you or anyone else regarding your home within two hours (except for between the hours of 10pm and 7am).
  • Hold broker’s open and open houses with refreshments and fresh flowers that I provide.


When an offer(s) is received:

  • Call you to let you know we’ve received an offer and immediately email to you for your review. If multiple offers are received I will conduct a beautiful symphony of negotiations to get the best possible offer for you and leverage the other offers against each other. It’s so fun!
  • Discuss and advise potential counter offer.
  • Negotiate with buyer’s agent. Find out the motivation of the buyer, research any contingencies.
  • If a buyer comes to me directly I will represent the buyer and seller with the utmost highest integrity and ethics, making sure it is a win/win scenario for all parties. If the seller prefers the buyer has their own agent, I have a co-broker that can assist.
  • Speak with buyer’s lender and verify that the buyer is indeed pre-qualified for loan amount.


While in escrow:

  • Make sure there is clear communication between sellers, title and escrow, lender and all parties involved in transaction.
  • Make sure everyone understands the timelines for earnest money deposit, inspection period, etc…
  • Effectively negotiate the inspection period, potential addendums and/or requested repairs. If there are any bids to be obtained by licensed professionals I assist in coordinating appointments and can provide trusted referrals should they be requested.
  • Stay in close contact with the buyer’s lender to ensure that we close on time.


On the closing date:

  • Schedule the sign to be removed.
  • Remove the lockbox.
  • Deliver keys to the new buyer once the title company lets me know that the transaction is funded and recorded.
