Print Agent Bio

Amelie brings a refreshing perspective to the Portland and Vancouver real estate market. Her 12 years of sales and marketing experience, both locally and internationally, give her clients the advantage of working with a seasoned professional who is always thinking a few steps ahead, whether it be writing strategic offers in competitive situations, negotiating repairs on classic old homes, or customizing marketing plans to set her sellers apart. Amelie is a true advocate and constant cheerleader for her clients. She has a healthy sense of urgency and brings a high level of compassion and care to all circumstances.

On top of that, her local knowledge and experience living, working (and playing) in both Portland and Vancouver can’t be beat. Having lived on both sides of the river, she can draw on her experience and connections to be a resource to her clients that are considering both areas. There are very important differences between the two that impact lifestyle as well as finances and Amelie takes pride in helping her clients navigate the decision.

Amelie and her husband, Scott, live in the Concordia Neighborhood in NE Portland. They are only the second owners of their 1940 built home and have enjoyed (for the most part!) slowly updating it. When they aren’t out and about in Portland or Vancouver, they can be found relaxing in their back yard with their Goldendoodle, Jo. And usually a few neighbors too!

Amelie is proud alumni of LaSalle High School and Seattle University. She played volleyball at both and has over 10 years of coaching experience. Now she plays regularly in the Portland City League.

Amelie helped us find our house in the challenging Portland market when we relocated from Ohio. We didn't know much about Portland, so her expertise of the area helped narrow our search. She showed us houses pretty much every weekend for almost three months, wrote four offers with negotiations, and was very thorough inspection and closing. We appreciate all the work Amelie did for us and would definitely recommend her to anyone moving to Portland!

— Allison and Brandon

My reason for giving the highest grades possible to Amelie is quite simple. For three months I laboriously reviewed over two thousand Vancouver listings online, attended open houses, drove around appropriate neighborhoods, asked strangers on the street etc. and was no closer to finding a suitable house at anywhere near my price range than when I started. Even customized new built houses were either $100K over my desired budget or in the middle of nowhere or both. I met Amelie on a Friday and by the next Tuesday we had an accepted bid on a house that ticked all my boxes and was $20K BELOW the low end of my price range. To top that off, we beat out 18 other bidders..

— Mike

I recently purchased my first home (in Portland, OR) with the help of Amelie. She did an excellent job of setting my expectations for the market and went above and beyond walking me through the process BEFORE the house hunting began, which made things so easy once the buying process started. All of her communications were prompt, friendly and clear. She was extremely accommodating of my schedule and made time in her schedule to be there for all of the important parts of the process. She gracefully negotiated the deal and was able to get me everything on the list - amazing! I would undoubtedly recommend Amelie to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the Portland area!

— Nicole

Amelie saved my life. Well, maybe not literally, but I could NOT have done this move without her help and knowledge. I was relocated to the Portland area for my job, and had only a month to make it happen. On just a day's notice, Amelie was able to meet with me (on a Sunday!) when I'd arranged to come up to Portland to look for a home. Amelie knows the Portland area inside and out, and was really the defining factor in what neighborhood on which we ultimately focused. She mapped out a slew of homes for us to see that day, and we made an offer before boarding our plane, which was accepted by the seller by the time we landed! With Amelie's help, we sailed through escrow and closed in 30 days. Because this was a long-distance move, Amelie handled everything for me in Vancouver so that I could concentrate on getting the move done without additional stress. Thanks to Amelie, my home buying process was quick, professional and seamless. Amelie will always be my realtor, and I'll refer her to whomever asks with no hesitation. She's THAT good.

— Michele

Amelie is an outstanding Realtor and was truly instrumental in helping us to negotiate and close on our new home. We arrived in Portland not really knowing where to turn and a very lucky meeting at our third open house change the situation completely. We had a bit to be nervous about as we were buying this house from out-of-state before we moved to Portland. Amelie kept us informed, and in the loop with what was going on in the market and really listened to what our needs were. Once we had made our choice and placed the offer we were very confident to have her as our onsite representative and negotiator. She was always ready to answer questions, take a call and even run over to check on the house for us before we were able to move in. We highly recommend Amelie Marian if you are considering buying in the Portland/ Vancouver area. Her high level of professionalism is matched by her warmth and compassion and you will not be disappointed.

— Kim and Jeremy

Amelie was fantastic to work with! She was very responsive and helpful with a constantly positive and friendly attitude. She was knowledgeable and able to help us get a great house with our first offer. If we decide to sell this house in the future we will definitely call her first.

— Emily and Lucas

Amelie was great to work with, and as out of state buyers, she had to manage a lot of inspections and meetings without us there, and did so with a great attitude. The process went incredibly smoothly. I highly recommend her!

— Katie and Jeff

I reached out to Amelie when my husband and I were considering relocating to Portland. Amelie spent two days with us, showing us properties in many different neighborhoods and helping us to understand the lay of the land. She was incredibly knowledgable and helpful as we got oriented to the area. We ended up deciding not to move, but if we had decided otherwise I definitely would have worked with Amelie further to find a home. Thank you, Amelie!

— Lindsay and Regan

Amelie helped us sell our rental house in Vancouver, WA. We could not have been more pleased and impressed with her throughout the entire process. She gave great advice and guidance, went above and beyond to help us make sure the home was ready to be shown, and she wasted no time in having an open house which turned out to be very successful. Amelie understands the world of real estate and her acumen makes it seem as if she has been doing this for decades. She is friendly and compassionate, while also being a shrewd negotiator. We would highly recommend Amelie to anyone who needs help selling or purchasing a home!

— Katie and Michael

I highly recommend Amelie! As a first time home buyer I knew very little about the home buying experience. Amelie was very helpful in calming my nerves and walking me through the process. She was always willing to work around my schedule and also very responsive to all of my needs. I think having a good relationship with your realtor is important in helping you find the right home. I was extremely happy with Amelie as my realtor and am looking forward to working with her again for my next home!

— Brent

Amelie helped my family and I with our first home purchase. We looked at numerous homes in the Portland area. She was very knowledgable of the surrounding areas and pointed us in the right direction in deciding what would best suit our growing family needs. I would highly recommend Amelie to any future home shoppers. Thanks again for everything Amelie!

— Dusty and Nikki

Amelie was key in helping my wife and I purchase our home, and without her dedicated effort, I'm not sure we would have finalized the purchase of this house we love without her. We fell in love with the home the moment we walked inside, but we were unprepared to make a serious offer. Amelie took us on as clients instantly and sprang into action, helping us connect with an excellent mortgage broker who worked over the weekend to get us prequalified. Our offer was one of several submitted and Amelie's ability to negotiate and gain insight from the listing agent helped us to submit a winning bid that was within budget andreasonable for the property. The home inspection turned up a list of surprises, some of them major, that had to be addressed in order to proceed. Amelie's confidence in working through these challenges helped calm our concerns. She helped us coordinate inspections and quotes for repair from a number of professional contractors who came to the house on short notice. Her list of contacts and contractors was vital to getting us more information quickly and in devising a plan. Amelie's skill in setting expectations with the sellers agent of what we found at the home that needed repair helped us reach agreement on our list of fixes. Throughout the entire process Amelie stayed in close communication with us, met inspectors and contractors on our behalf, and followed up on open items to ensure things got done. Amelie was there to make sure we received what we agreed to, and that we were buying a good home. It took a lot of the stress and worry away from me knowing she was handling it and, in the end, we got more than we imagined. We're thrilled to have our new home and we owe a lot to Amelie for getting us here. Without her skill, persistence, communication and constant watch over our home buying process we would have very likely walked away from a great home we love. Amelie is a dedicated real estate professional who we would recommend to anyone buying a home in the Portland market
