I started selling Real Estate nearly 30 years ago. Interest rates were double digit and that's hard to imagine with current rates being so low! But I still enjoyed selling Real Estate from day one. My interest in Architecture serves me well - I enjoy analyzing structures and floor plans. Does it work for my client and if not, can it be adapted? Does it have potential? Is it a good value? I love the quest for the perfect match - finding the right home for my clients.


I specialize in Urban Properties- especially The Pearl District, where I live. Back in 1996, I was the first residential Realtor to specialize in the Pearl District. Each day I track the market and can provide my clients with extensive reports detailing the condo market. I really do know all the urban condo buildings inside and out.

Mary Ann was referred to us as a realtor we could totally count on to be responsible and responsive to our questions and timely with her answers, someone who had a very high ethical standard and was especially knowledgeable about the Portland condo market. She has proven to be not only responsible, responsive, and knowledgeable, but indefatigable. Several times we asked if she wasn't quite frustrated by our inability to find a place right for both of us; she would tell us we weren't even close to the record of number of places viewed by many others. Then, when we finally found the right place, the perfect condo, the amount of work she did to make it happen was beyond belief. It was a difficult process. We were ready to quit as the situation seemed hopeless but she found a way through. Needless to say, Mary Ann ranks very high in our esteem!

"We recently had the pleasure of listing our home for sale with Mary Ann McDowell. What a great experience! Her professionalism and extensive knowledge of the neighborhood helped us make decisions that presented our loft in the best light. We had interested buyers right away, and then Mary Ann really took over. She coordinated all comings and goings for inspections and thought of everything needed to make the transition seamless for us and the buyers. We feel so lucky to have had her participation and look forward to seeing her around the neighborhood!"
