Aimee's experience with Eastside real estate is much more than a real estate license. She was born and raised in Southeast Portland, attended Portland Public Schools through 8th grade and then Central Catholic High School. Aimee knows the schools and neighborhoods of Eastside Portland in a way that only 50 plus years as a resident can teach you. She lived in the Hawthorne neighborhood for 28 years and raised her 3 boys there. Whether you are buying or selling, her goal is your satisfaction.
Aimee received a BA from Willamette University with Majors in both Business Economics and English. After college she spent 3 years at a large advertising agency (Brown Dugan & Associates, Inc.) writing copy, buying media and representing clients as an Account Executive. In the early 90's Aimee had the opportunity to become the clothing buyer for a chain of Portland stores (The Jean Machine) working with multi-million dollar budgets and juggling marketing plans for 7 stores. When her children were born she took a 'leave' from the workplace. During this time, however, Aimee started an e-Bay home business where she sold products ranging from jewelry to cars!

With her education and background Aimee can provide you with experience in many things that make for a successful real estate transaction -- ability to analyze numbers and market conditions, marketing & copywriting expertise, salesmanship and attention to detail!
