Print Agent Bio

Libby is the pacesetter. She has a knack for putting clients at ease by injecting fun into the process of buying and selling homes. Don’t be misled by her style! Libby brings more than 12 years of business practice, negotiation, and marketing experience to her investment and residential real estate clients. The success of her referral-based business is built on the value and guidance she shows before, during, and after each transaction. 

Libby has been a top producing broker for The Hasson Company since she earned Rookie of the Year in 2004, with sales exceeding $7 million. Libby continued to be a top 10% Portland agent from 2005 to 2008, and in 2009 was awarded Broker of the Year in the Portland Uptown Hasson office on NW 23rd Place. 

Libby leads at crafting competitive offers. Her acumen for negotiation, and her business savvy guides clients though all phases of buying and selling. Libby gets the job done for you. She is your trusted partner.

After pausing for a few years to start her family and to found a charity Your Sisters (yoursisters.org) for empowering women and orphan girls in Tanzania, Africa, Libby returned to her real estate career in Portland with full force. She LOVES this city…and it’s people. Libby feels it is a great honor to work with clients intimately through one of the most important decisions of their lives.

Libby graduated from the University of Oregon where she majored in Environmental Science and Psychology. She lives in Portland with her husband Frank and two children. In the early days, Libby was also a mountain-climber, with summits on four continents. She says “mountains and being in nature has always been a place I find great inspiration.”

 

We had the pleasure of working with Libby with both buying and selling....and she sure got the job done! As empty-nesters, we had been looking unsuccessfully for over a year, hoping to downsize from our family home to something more urban and with a view. We didn't really know what kind of property we wanted, but we knew we needed a change. It seemed like we had viewed an endless sequence of houses, but without seeing what we wanted. In addition, the thought of preparing our rather tired, and child-worn home for sale was simply daunting. Once we connected with Libby, she helped us see the range of possibilities for where we might go, and how we could quickly and inexpensively prepare our current house for sale. Libby showed us some homes with views that met our expectations, but knowing what we were looking for, also expanded our knowledge of the condominium market. This was key in helping us see that a condo was much more in line with our new lifestyle. Libby spent the time to help us truly understand what was available and how it might work for us. We then found the perfect place, and I can even remember the view of Mt. Hood at sunset that sealed the deal for us. The market was very challenging at that time, but Libby was knowledgeable about how to construct an offer that would get us into the home we had now fallen in love with. The negotiations got down to some fine points, but as Libby is always focused with finding solutions, she persisted to find a way to get all parties to agree. We were thrilled to have had gotten our place and to have had Libby guide us through all of it. For our old home, Libby knew exactly where we needed to focus and spend money and where we didn't. Her ability to advise and guide us through the process was greatly appreciated. She helped with contractors and made everything work efficiently. She has a talent for knowing how to get properties positioned to sell quickly. And ours did! We give a high recommendation for Libby- she is a true professional, she cares deeply for the people she works with, and she simply has a talent for real estate. Libby loves people and she loves helping them in the places that support their lives.

I have loved working with Libby so much! She's so gracious, supportive and present! She offers guidance and help with staging while making you feel completely at ease. It's so easy to trust her with your home. She actually answers her phone, and immediately shares when anything new is happening with your home. I am so grateful to work with her.

Libby is a true professional! In assisting us with the sale of our house, she has provided us with excellent comparable information, perfect suggestions for staging and readying the house for sale, and marketing our home through RMLS, Zillow, flyers, and other means. Libby is also proving very helpful in helping us locate a new home, with great ideas and suggestions, as well as offering excellent research tools for us to use. She is readily available to show us homes, and works with our schedule. We are very pleased with Libby's assistance and highly recommend her!

"“ My husband and I loved working with Libby to sell our house and purchase a new home. She instinctively new what we were looking and helped us to go after a place we would absolutely love. Libby was on the ball and helped us get our offer accepted. Libby is a great listener and truly wants what is best for you and your family. I never felt pressured through the whole process, even in Portland’s crazy fast-paced housing market. Whenever an issues or challenges came up, on the listing or buying side, Libby just took care of it. I really appreciated that as a mom of two little ones! She had great advice on what work needed to be done to our home to increase the purchase price and she actually saved us money. I would recommend Libby to anyone looking to sell or purchase a home in Portland. She’s knows how to get the job done for you. Thanks Libby for making a stressful time in our lives so simple and smooth!""

"Libby was instrumental in helping me purchase my first apartment in Portland. She knew all the details and had the inside track on the building I wanted to buy in. She (with Barbara on her team) was patient as I had difficulty making up my mind and essential to getting my offer accepted. She was also supportive during a prolonged closing process. She is always cheery and professional no matter what hour of the day or night we spoke. I would recommend her to others including first time home buyers."
