My own entry into the Portland market began in 2012 with my search for my first home. I spent nearly 18 months researching property values, taxation rates and neighborhoods and watched as Portland appreciated its way out of the slump of the late 2000s. After entering into homeownership, I couldn't keep my eyes, or my mind off the market, and this passion led to its logical result when I became a licensed realtor.
As your agent, I focus on creating experiences that capture the best parts of shopping for a home and reduce the anxieties and frustration that can sometimes creep in. I accomplish this first by listening, and hearing from you the things that are important to you, and later in the process by doggedly advocating for your needs once we reach negotiations. If there is one thing I have, it’s energy; and I will not rest until you are snug in your new home, feet up, thinking of the memories you will make in this new place.
Whether you are actively starting your search, resuming one, or simply keeping up on changes in the market with a future purchase in mind, I assure you I will endeavor tirelessly to provide you a home-buying experience that is energetic, exciting, and tailored personally to YOU.
"I never imagined a realtor would be as fun as she is professional! My fiancé and I are first-time homeowners in Portland and we had our heart set on a few characteristics for our future home. Jessica was great in helping us set realistic expectations for our budget, as she is incredibly familiar with the market. We looked at several houses, and it was clear right off the bat that something that made Jessica really special is her knowledge about remodels! She offered so many great ideas as we walked through properties about what we could do to make that home meet our needs/wants, and could ballpark about how much it would be (she probably "has a guy" for it, too!), without making it feel like she was pressuring us to settle. After putting in a few offers, Jessica landed us our dream home! The creativity this girl has when it comes to crafting up offers is outstanding on it's own – we ended up getting our offer accepted while there were higher bids on the house. She was so patient and positive throughout the process, and her communication was phenomenal – she kept us updated every step of the way, making what should be an overwhelming process so painless. We will 100% be recommending Jessica to friends and strangers alike for the foreseeable future!"
