About Kristen

Ranked among the top 1% of brokers in Portland, Kristen has formed a distinguished reputation for exceptional service over the course of nearly two decades. Clients come to her exclusively through recommendations and referrals, a result of her unwavering dedication to quality before, during and after the transaction.

Drawn by the opportunity to bring her clients’ listings to the international market, in 2016 Kristen joined Cascade Hasson Sotheby’s International Realty. This exciting new partnership allowed her to combine her extensive real estate experience with the prestigious 278-year-old Sotheby’s brand and its historical reputation for excellence, a business quality Kristen always strives for.

Kristen’s business model diverges from that of many other brokers. Unlike large teams where clients are often serviced by newer team members, Kristen prefers to be fully engaged in every transaction. To that end, she has developed strategic partnerships with photographers, videographers, marketing professionals and transaction coordinators who enable her to be entirely present with her clients while still providing the wealth of services of a much larger team.

Along with her network, Kristen is committed to building long-term relationships with her clients, several having purchased and listed with her many times over.  She is an expert negotiator, respected and trusted by her colleagues, adept at discovering optimal solutions and committed to finding a ‘win-win’ in every scenario. Clients appreciate her calm, confident, and highly professional demeanor, maintained throughout even the most difficult transactions. 

In addition to Kristen’s powerful network of like-minded professionals in high end markets, she is a member of Realm Global, an invitation-only and highly selective group of vetted top-producing luxury brokers. This one of-a-kind community is augmented by proprietary, cutting-edge technology that matches qualified buyers to unique properties based on lifestyle and interests rather than standard search criteria. Kristen’s expansive network allows her to not only expose her clients’ listings to a wider qualified audience, but also to connect buyers looking outside of the Portland area with trusted advisors who understand the specific needs of high-net-worth individuals.
