Every year people are moving to the Columbia River Gorge to embrace the amazing scenery and be part of the local community. The area has the most beautiful landscape varying from desert to forest, along with crown jewels: Mt. Hood and Mt. Adams. And of course there is the mighty Columbia River! Drive east and you are in the desert, north or south and you are in the mountains, west and you are in the city of Portland, and two hours later at the Pacific Ocean. It just doesn’t get any better than this!

The Columbia River Gorge is home to a diverse group of companies including Google, Insitu and Tofurky. Breweries, wineries, cideries and distilleries are all on the rise offering employment and jobs are also available in healthcare, government and agriculture. Outdoor activities attract thousands of people every year to the Columbia River Gorge which creates ample tourism opportunities.

Thinking about moving to the Gorge? Friendly real estate agents are ready to lend their expertise in finding you a new home. They are true believers that this area is the perfect place to live whether you are retired, raising a family or commuting to work in the city. In fact, many commuters find the drive through the Gorge a chance to unwind, knowing there is still time when they get home to enjoy their favorite hike or jump on the river for an evening session.

Born, raised, married and working in the Gorge, I am a true Local. I’ve experienced first hand the community and what it has to offer. I have seen our  little communities turn into THE places to be for living, working, retiring, relaxing, playing or just getting away. Helping you find the right property is part of my job! The other part is helping you sell should you have to relocate. Either way I’m here for you!
