Shelley grew up in a real estate family in beautiful Southern Oregon, then moved to Eugene in the Willamette Valley to attend The University of Oregon where she studied architecture, art, and journalism. There she invested in real estate and built a home. She was fortunate to live many years living in France, Austria, and Japan, before finally moving to Portland in 1998. Shelley has resided in all four quadrants of Portland and has also helped friends find homes in Lake Oswego, Tigard, and Tualatin. She loves living in the Pacific Northwest, watching her son play professional basketball, and volunteering in the community. Shelley is on the board of the Landen Lucas Foundation that focuses on creating access and opportunities to underprivileged youth. With a background in education and corporate leadership development, Shelley merges excellent communications, negotiations, and personal effectiveness skills with her ability to cultivate lasting relationships. In a place where hiking, cycling, art, music, amazing restaurants and rooftop views reign supreme, Shelley would love to show you around this beautiful region. Whether you are buying for the first time, upgrading to your dream home, or looking to retire in this great state, Shelley knows Portland and would love to help you find your perfect home!
