My real estate career has spanned over 25 years, helping people upsize and downsize, relocate internationally or from east to west. I arrived in Portland from London more than 30 years ago and vividly remember the stress of needing to get to grips with a city quickly in order to find the right architecture, neighborhood or school that fits. I have lived all over Europe and all over Portland, in old homes and new homes. There's not much that I don't know about the whole process. My job is to make your search and eventual purchase as stress free as possible and at the end of the day - fun.
When the real estate market changed in 2008, so did I by going back to school to hone my interior design skills. I spend a lot of time helping clients see the possibilities – how a master bathroom could be created by repositioning walls or extending a kitchen by maximizing the existing wasted space. I can see the potential in a home, sometimes it’s as simple as suggesting color and texture or knowing where a load bearing wall most likely is. I'll sketch out ideas and help you create your new space. I help clients envision better layouts, color and lighting; sourcing furniture, rugs and accessories.
