Print Agent Bio

 

While contemplating purpose and meaning, over a summer spent answering phones at a brokerage firm, I discovered something important. I discovered I was witnessing the power of homeownership to transform lives, families, and communities. Right there, from that tiny reception desk, I realized the practice of real estate is a public service, homeownership is an equalizing force. Housing is a human right because, wherever we find each other, we all come from home.

It's been 20 years, or so, and my love affair with real estate has only deepened. Devoted to the craft–skills honed through years of hard work and experience–I'm proud of the practice I've built and grateful for the opportunity to share it with you.

I'd love to hear about your real estate goals, dreams, and visions. Feel free to set up an appointment. We'll sit down and chat about whether or not our skills, expertise, and craftsmanship will benefit all of us.

“One day I was living in a ramshackle home off of Alberta Street with my infant twin sons and my husband. The kids room was in the attic and the house was small and just wasn’t cutting it for us. A few of my friends had used Lee to buy their homes. I heard nothing but good things, so decided to give her a call. The kids instantly called her, “Whee!” Our house looked like 1 year old twin boys lived in it too. “Whee” instructed us to get out of Dodge for the weekend and that she would get our house clean, stage it and sell it. She did! It was a miracle. House sold in less than a week! We had bought the ramshackle home in 2005, before the economy had tanked. We sold it in 2010 and even sold it for $40,000 more than we had paid for it. Pretty unheard of, given the times! Little did we know, this was just the beginning. I went on a run with the twin jogging stroller a few weeks after this and total saw “the house.” OMG! Texts were flying back and forth, and Lee got us in to see it and made sure we got it for the cheapest price possible, and made sure all the details were taken care of. The whole process was fun and not stressful. Lee even helped pick out bedding and paint colors. Going above and beyond. Even now, a year and a half later, I look around and think, “I can’t believe I live here!” Thanks Lee, you are the best! -- Juli and “Mr. Adelman” and the kids

"I have worked with many realtors over the years and have yet to find one as knowledgeable about the market, as attentive to our needs, and as much of a pure pleasure to work with. Her team was experienced, professional and so thoughtful. I would (and do, refutable!) highly recommend Lee McKnight and the Hasson Co often!!"

"I've bought and sold 5 other homes in various locations in the USA but this recent experience was the most enjoyable and rewarding by far. Lee was the listing agent for a condo I wanted to see in downtown Portland and from the moment I first talked to her I realized she was the realtor for me. She sent me all sorts of material about urban living and housing trends and answered all of my questions very promptly. She was there for me 100%, whether that meant picking up my paperwork at a restaurant near my B & B or arranging the closing at an office convenient to public transportation. The whole process, from first seeing the condo to moving in, only took 29 days. Lee's team (David Abrams and Travis Olson) were also very professional and supportive."

"Lee, and her team, are amazing! The process of selling one home and buying another, was absolutely seamless. From listing, to negotiations, this woman knows it all, and does it extremely well. I've wor with her on 2 separate transactions, over the years, and I will not work with anyone else in the future. "

"I first met Lee in 2004, through a friend.. When I decided to purchase a home in 2007, I chose to use Lee as my agent. By far, she is top notch.. Her attention to detail is impeccable, as is her ability to negotiate and provide the best outcome for her clients. I will use Lee again on future transactions, and i know there will be more. I've referred multiple friends to Lee at Hasson, and all have had successful sales and/or purchases.
