Real Estate Broker
Many of my best memories growing up came from times spent going around the city with my father as he met with his real estate clients. In our city in Brazil my father was one of the most well-respected real estate brokers, because he was hardworking, knowledgeable, honest and fun to be around. As a RE/MAX real estate broker in Portland, I now bring these same qualities and passion to be of service and help my clients find their home.
How did I get here? I fell in love with a Portlander and moved from Brazil to Portland 15 years ago, started a family (identical twin daughters!) and finished my university degree at Portland State. My university studies in Brazil had been primarily in economics giving me a great foundation in the way the world of business works, and my studies in Portland were focused in social psychology giving me a lot of insight into people and communication and working towards positive outcomes together. This foundation is so important, because real estate is a relationship and not just a sales transaction!
As I went through school and raised my daughters, I have continuously worked as a capoeira (Brazilian martial art) teacher for adults and children. Teaching capoeira has given me a great opportunity to understand Portland, its people and its places. I still participate in a lot of community and arts events in town, teach at Reed College and at a couple different studios in town (check out my website), and feel grateful to have had the chance to teach at my daughters’ school, Irvington, along with the Creative Science School and various camps over the years. I remain a practitioner and teacher of this art form, even though real estate is now my main focus. As a real estate broker, I bring the same dedication and discipline that makes me successful martial artist to making sure my clients get the best deal and the process goes as smoothly as possible.
