Print Agent Bio

As a sculptor and lover of interior design, I am passionate about spaces and the possibilities they hold, whether they are diamonds in the rough or perfectly finished gems. Throughout the buying and selling process, I’m here to help you make the most of your space from offering staging tips to professional resources to get your home ready to sell. When you're ready to buy, we'll look at things with a sharp eye to find the right property to call home. As a former educator, I'm firm about making sure my clients understand each step of the process and can traverse it with confidence and ease. Beyond that, I love digging into the details, taking away the stress, making sure that each transaction goes as smoothly as possible, ensuring that the negotiations are solid and that the biggest sales and purchases you'll make in life are ones that fill you with joy.

 

I’m lucky to be the mom of a rambunctious 6-year-old and a 4th-generation Portlander with a deep love for this city and all it has to offer. I have spent countless hours roaming through Portland on foot, bicycle, train, and car. I've lived in every quadrant of the city: learning the quirks of the neighborhoods and seeing firsthand how the market has grown and developed over the past few decades. Each year, my commitment to this city and my community grows stronger, and nothing makes me happier than helping others find their place here. When I'm not with a client in pursuit of the perfect house, you can find me sneaking off to the Oregon coast with my daughter, checking out the latest new restaurants, and at just about every art opening in town!

As a first time home buyer, I was nervous to go through this whole process. But thanks to Vanessa I found and snagged my dream home in just a couple weeks! She is so sweet, so knowledgeable and professional, she made me feel right at home and walked me through each step in the process. Vanessa listened to what I wanted, was super responsive, and helped me navigate the many decisions and choices involved in this process. I couldn’t have found a better realtor!

Vanessa is not just an amazing realtor, she is your go-to project manager for getting all the little things done to get your house on the market and get the best return on investment. I would highly recommend her as your listing agent.

— Jamie & Matt

Vanessa was quick to figure out what I wanted beyond what I could describe in words, brought attractive contenders to my attention, and helped me put together an affordable offer that was quickly accepted for an outstanding home in convulsive market. I am so lucky to have had her as a guide on my house buying adventure.

Vanessa was absolutely instrumental in the search for our home. We had lots of needs - room for a kiddo, space for an art studio, a big yard, lots of charm, and a specific price point. Vanessa took the time to understand us and helped to hunt, discuss, and clarify our decisions so that when we put in an offer, we were thrilled to be committing to a place we loved. The market is crazy right now and Vanessa’s expertise and passion powered us through a home search that could be stressful at times. She is great at seeing a home’s potential past a gorgeous staging to the bones underneath. We couldn’t have done it without her and we’ve been happy to recommend her to our friends in the months since we moved in.

— Ashley & Grant

"I am so glad that Vanessa was able to help me sell my house. Both the buyers and I were amazed that there was not a single glitch in the entire process--Vanessa made it all look easy! Vanessa knows everything there is to know about Portland and its neighborhoods, having lived here for almost all her life. She is knowledgeable, perceptive, and honest. I've never had a realtor I've trusted as much as Vanessa. I recommend her without a single reservation! You will truly enjoy working with her."

"Vanessa was fantastic! She helped us with our first commercial real estate purchase...there is a lot more to know and do with CRE compared with home purchases. She made sure that we found the right property and guided us through the process. Any time I had a question, she was right on top of it, providing an thorough answer, as well as anything else helpful that went along with it that I hadn't though of yet. She was professional and prompt throughout, something that I highly value. Thanks Vanessa!"
