What brought you to Portland?
I am originally from the Boston area and have lived in Portland since graduating from Wesleyan University. Portland offers the ease of a small city while still delivering great cultural, culinary and outdoor experiences.
What brought you to Urban Works?
Urban Works offers the right size firm to be successful in a small marketplace such as Portland. Prior to Urban Works, I completed the graduate program in real estate development at PSU and worked in urban planning.
What is your broker specialization?
I specialize in leasing and sale transactions in Portland’s close in, urban trade areas on the east and west sides. Clients range from creative office, to retail to restaurant users and the local and national landlords who develop and invest in Portland’s urban neighborhoods.
What Portland architecture inspires you?
Union Station is a lovely vintage building that offers a glimpse into Portland’s history. Big Pink is a great icon for Portland’s skyline and the Fair Haired Dumbbell Building represents 21st century Portland and the emergence of the central eastside district.
