About Me

alyssa_iconLooking for something a little different?

Shooting straight from the hip, I can translate your personal tastes and lifestyle into a detailed search pin-pointing the areas that will speak to your sensibilities. Specializing in “Mid-Century” and un-remodeled “Period-Perfect” properties from all eras, my background and passion for historic architecture and my comprehensive knowledge of Portland will make your home buying/selling experience less of a chore and more of an adventure.
It’s all about the vintage details – whether modern or kitsch, it’s original. You love it and I get why!

When I started real estate,  I realized there was a market for specifically vintage properties, both mid-century modern and mid-century modest,  but few realtors willing to service it. I started by posting ‘Picks of the Week’, introducing enthusiasts to the awesome mid-mod houses of Portland. In 2006, I founded the Mid-Century Modern League in order to educate the public about the importance of preserving these gems.  Today I continue to focus on Mid-Mod, but have added vintage, mostly un-remodeled houses of earlier eras, which I call ‘Period-Perfect’, because they have interest to clients and are under-serviced too.

There are many imitators, but I consider myself an innovator.

Atomic houses for Atomic People!
