A Little About Me: I’ve been a Real Estate Broker since 2004 and have been at the Hasson Company ever since. I'm a Diamond Platinum member of the Masters Circle and feel lucky to be a part of a company with so many active, successful agents. Born and raised in Portland, I live in the NW area with my husband and family. I love living in Portland, although I do have to admit there are many days during the winter that I long for sunshine and blue skies!
My background: I’m a University of Portland Pilot through and through! My Dad, Joe Etzel was the long time U.P. Athletic Director and our entire family are proud UP graduates. I graduated with a degree in Nursing and worked as an RN for over 15 years. Most of my nursing career was spent at OHSU, first as a floor nurse and then as a case manager. A self proclaimed "mid -career crisis" led me to Real Estate, which I love!
In my spare time: Having two boys in school and involved in sports, doesn’t leave me a lot of free time! I love cheering them on at their games, volunteering at their schools and just hanging out as a family. We enjoy attending local sporting events together and spending time in Central Oregon. A few years ago we welcomed Charlie, a Goldendoodle, into our family. He has added another layer of fun to our daily lives. Gardening, decorating, and volunteering are just a few of the other things I enjoy.
Referrals are the ultimate compliment and testimony. My goal is to be the realtor that you refer to family and friends. I pride myself in my friendly, professional approach and I will always have your best interest in mind. I would love the opportunity to represent you!
"My husband and I agonized over which realtor we should choose to sell our home that we had lived in for over 29 years and we are so delighted that we chose Kathy, who was recommended to me by my mother's attorney. She was terrific. Not only did she have expert local knowledge of our area, but she was also was up to date with all the new realities of selling a home. She was a real marketing pro! She helped us get our home ready by getting us the resources to help us stage the property and then get it photographed so that it looked amazing! We probably had at least 20 families come to view our home the first couple of days it was on the Market -- I am sure that the way the home was presented online was key to this response. Kathy was also hugely helpful when we had to sort through multiple offers on our property. As the sale progressed through the process, home inspection, appraisal, and so on, Kathy was always there and on top of things. This was immensely helpful to me as I am real worrier. Our sale went smoothly and came off without a hitch! Kathy met and far exceeded all of our requirements. She was terrific!!!"
