Rachel Day joined Urban Nest as Holly & Rachel's dedicated Buyer's Agent. She is approachable, professional, and outgoing, and prides herself on providing the best customer service for her clients. Rachel's experience and adaptable nature allow her to navigate the ever-changing Portland market, and she truly cares about her client's home-buying experience. A true Portlander who loves the rain, she still enjoys heading South of the border to get a little sunshine break every now and then.
Her ideal adventure for an urban Portland day: Rachel is your atypical outdoorsy Oregonian, and can often be found hiking Angel's Rest, golfing at Heron Lakes, or wine tasting in Dundee Hills. She'll then head to friendly, family-owned Andina for some delicious Peruvian tapas, or hang out with her friends at any bar that carries Big Buck Hunter (Rachel is a dedicated animal lover, but is also pretty serious about maintaining the high score on this pub staple at every location in Portland!)
Her superpower: A social crusader. Rachel will always be the first one to speak up in public if injustice is being served.
Superpower she wishes she had: Rachel's grandmother used to talk about wanting to be a bird, so she could view the world from a different perspective. Rachel would love to do the same.
Her favorite moment/s in real estate: She had started working with a young couple with specific ideas of what they wanted in a home - but when Rachel found a house outside of their parameters, she followed her instincts and the couple fell in love with it. Their offer was one of three, so Rachel penned a heartfelt letter to the Seller on behalf of her clients, and managed to convince the Seller that her clients deserved this house...even up against a much higher offer! When she told them that the house was theirs, they actually gasped. Being able to make her clients happy and realize their dreams is what drives her.
Favorite Portland neighborhood, and why? Rachel has lived in downtown Portland for most of her life, and couldn't imagine living anywhere else. She loves being able to step outside her door and have immediate access to the events and culture that makes NW Portland so unique within a 10 block radius. As someone who genuinely enjoys meeting people - even approaching strangers in the street to help, or strike up a conversation - she is deeply connected to her community, and "never feel(s) alone" while downtown.
