A Little About Me:

I've been a Real Estate Broker since 2004 and have been at Hasson Company, Realtors ever since. I feel privileged to be a part of a local company with so many active, successful agents.  Born and raised in Portland, I live in the NW area with my husband and boys.  I love living in Portland, although I do have to admit there are many days during the winter that I long for sunshine and blue skies!

My Background:

I’m a University of Portland Pilot through and through!  My Dad, Joe Etzel was the longtime U.P. Athletic Director and our entire family are proud UP graduates. I graduated with a degree in Nursing and worked as an RN for over 15 years. Most of my nursing career was spent at OHSU, first as a floor nurse and then as a case manager. A self-proclaimed "mid-career crisis" led me to Real Estate, which I love. 

In my spare time:

Both our boys were 2020 graduates. Needless to say, missing their graduation ceremonies & fun that goes along with it was disappointing, but we made the best of it. My oldest graduated from the University of Portland, he secured a job shortly after and is back living at home during the pandemic to save money. My younger one graduated from Jesuit HS and is now off to college. I'm definitely missing their sporting events and school activities, but I always seem to find something to keep me busy. We have fun together as a family, whether it's hanging around the fire pit, cheering on our favorite teams, doing something active outdoors or spending time in Central Oregon. Our Goldendoodle, Charlie adds another layer of fun into our daily lives. Gardening, decorating, hiking, pilates & volunteering are just a few of the other things I enjoy. The fight against Alzheimers is dear to my heart - my sweet mom suffers from it and the need for a cure is so desperately needed.

Fun Fact:

Who says you can't go home. . .  My husband and I bought the home I grew up in from my parents when they decided to downsize several years ago. It's been fun raising our boys in the home I grew up in. We love the location, the neighborhood, backing to a park and adding our personal touch over time. We went from living in a new home for 11 years to a mid-century home with a big yard, so there is always a project!

Referrals:

Referrals are the ultimate compliment and testimony to my service. My goal is to be the realtor you think of when you are contemplating buying or selling and the one you refer to family and friends. I pride myself on my friendly, professional approach and I will always have your best interest in mind. I would love the opportunity to represent you!
