Jen is a fifth generation Portland native, a third generation Realtor and, over the years, has lived in all quadrants of the city. Needless to say, she’s a true local with the inside scoop on Portland and its history. Jen grew up helping her father with his commercial apartment exchange business and she owns a few investment properties here in Portland and one in Bend, OR. Her decision to become a Realtor came naturally, and she began her career in 2003. With a majority of her clients coming through referrals, we’d say she’s doing things right! The parts of the business that excite her most are negotiating, problem-solving and educating clients to keep them two steps ahead of the game.
Jen spends some of her professional time as a member of the Grievance Committee that handles ethics complaints through the Portland Metropolitan Association of Realtors. She is passionate about the city’s history as well as where it’s future lies. She stays active in the community and is currently a member of the Residential Real Estate Council, Oregon Historical Society, Architectural Heritage Center, Women’s Foundation of Oregon, and Portland’s City Club.
Jen currently lives in Northeast Portland with her husband and daughter and dog Ollie. In her off time, she loves spending time with her family, exploring new places inside & outside of the city, reading biographies and studying Portland history.
