real estate BROKER
Leanne loves Portland and likes to share her enthusiasm with people who already reside here and those that don't know what they're missing! Portland is a young city full of vibrant, creative individuals who want to put in their "2 cents" in building this city up and making it stand out on the map. If there is any place that can enable forward thinking minds, embrace change and sustainability, support dreams all while providing luscious bounty in a huge playground...Portland is it!
Leanne has been a Realtor since 2003 and she clearly loves where she works and calls home, along with the job that she does. Her clients are some of the most dynamic people and help make her job feel less like a job. Helping the people with their real estate decisions is just one building block in the structure that houses their goals and dreams in life, and Leanne takes it very seriously. She feels lucky to call her clients her friends and to serve their friends with the same diligence and guidance. The fact that she enjoys her work so much insures that she immerses herself in the market and educates herself on current market conditions so that she can help her clients make sound decisions.
Her Ideal Portland Adventure: Pack up the boat with food/drinks for the day and hit the water! Final destination would be Sauvie Island, where Leanne and her family would lounge in the sand, get dragged behind the boat on some water toys and finally head back up the Columbia as the sun is setting, bellies full, skin warmed and smiles permanently on their faces.
Her Superpower: Leanne is a connector! Seriously, she has someone for any need you may have. And if for some reason she doesn’t she’ll find one!
Favorite moment in real estate: There have been a lot since 2003, so that’s tough! When she was brand new, there was a snow storm in December that had everyone on lockdown (oh, Portland), and she had an out of state buyer call her to see a property. The next day, Leanne was trekking through snow in her Jeep up and down the roads of Lake Oswego. The sellers and their agents couldn’t believe she was braving the storm! Ha! She’s pretty sure she was the only one who sold anything that weekend. And it was her very first sale.
Favorite Portland neighborhood, and why? Nob Hill/Willamette Heights, Leanne loves being close to Forest Park for every day hikes, Chapman Elementary School to watch the swifts every season, and steps away from shopping and eating. Walking up and down the streets always seems to unearth a new discovery and she is in awe of the different styles and eras of the homes. The tree lined streets don’t hurt either…especially during cherry blossom season!
