Nathaniel is experienced in all areas of real estate, but especially loves working with first time home buyers. In addition to his work as a Realtor, Nathaniel enjoys volunteering, and supporting local non-profits, and his passions include equality, social justice, human rights, and environmental protection. He's the host of Plugged In on KB00 (90.7 FM) which serves the dual purpose of supporting local DJs and electronic music producers, while also being "plugged in" to the local community. Nathaniel is also a creative writer with a focus on poetry and short science fiction. Other hobbies include photography, and painting.
His ideal adventure of an urban Portland day: Brunch at Sanborns is an excellent way to kickstart the day, and Nathaniel is a fan of their German pancakes which come in a variety of flavors. Next, he would do some shopping at Crossroads Music on Hawthorne. In addition to being a DJ, he is also an avid vinyl collector. Then it's time for a hike along the Columbia River Gorge with his partner, and their two "pound puppies" - Harmony the Corgi-Shepherd mix, and Dharma, a Terrier-Mutt. Having built up an appetite, it's on to Savoy for their garden burger and some fried cheese curds. To top off the day, he'll grab some ice cream from Scoop - an ice cream food cart at the pod on SE 50th and Division.
His superpower: Being empathetic - he has the ability to put himself in others' shoes.
Superpower he wishes he had: To be able to fly!
Favorite moment/s in real estate: Receiving feedback from his clients. Each transaction presents its unique challenges, but despite any bumps in the road along the way, Nathaniel has never had a dissatisfied client. Hearing back from them on how happy they are with his services, and the results of a purchase or sale, reinforces that he's accomplishing the work that he's set out to do.
Favorite Portland neighborhood, and why? Nathaniel is a SE resident, and consider Brooklyn, Hawthorne, Division, and Woodstock as his main haunts. Division, in particular, is still growing and evolving, and he enjoys the variety of styles and eras, and how a 40s Cape Cod, a 70s bachelor pad, and an eco-friendly modern condo can easily share the same block. Nathaniel also appreciates how many developers in the SE area are honoring the traditional PDX style in the new construction projects.
