Jen is a fifth-generation Oregon native and a third-generation Realtor. Needless to say, she's a true local with the inside scoop on Oregon and its history. Currently living part time in Bend, OR, and part time in Portland, OR, Jen is now able to help folks with buying & selling needs in both the Portland Metro areas as well as Central Oregon!
Jen grew up helping her dad with his commercial apartment exchange business and has owned various investment properties in Portland and one in Bend, OR. Her decision to become a Realtor came naturally, and she began her career in 2003 after having studied abroad in Germany through the U of O exchange program. With a majority of her clients coming through referrals, we'd say she's doing things right! Jen has closed over 450 transactions to date with a mix of buyer and seller clients. She won the Willamette Weekly's "Best Realtor in Portland" in 2017 and has been voted a Five-Star Professional with the Portland Monthly Magazine every year since its inception in 2011.
In the past few years, Jen has been spending some of her professional time as a volunteer member of the RMLS Hearings Committee, the Oregon Association of Realtors Business Issues Committee, the OAR Diversity Committee and PMAR's Professional Standards Committee. She's also a board member of the Vanport Mosaic in Portland and is a current volunteer for MountainStar Family Relief Nursery in Bend.
Jen is passionate about mentoring & coaching Realtors as well as helping people of all backgrounds and beliefs with their property buying & selling needs.
