I was born in Russia near the Black Sea and majored in Technical Design at College Number 42 in Tallinn, Estonia. The collapse of the USSR and ensuing uncertainty brought me to Portland in 1992. Fast-forward to now and I couldn’t be happier in our perfect city. I love spending time outdoors with my family whether it be picnics at Grant Park, or chanterelle-hunting in the Tillamook Forest or tennis at Washington Park. I love sipping a Spanish coffee at Government Camp after a powder day on Mt. Hood and biking the Hollywood District on my 1945 Dayton Huffman cruiser. And sometimes I like to pop on the Max and go shopping in the Pearl District. I came to this city as an outsider and now, after years in real estate absorbing all of the wonderful things Portland has to offer, I am an insider ready to guide my clients through every step of the home buying or selling process. I know the Portland real estate market can be daunting to the casual observer but I can help navigate it and even make it fun!
