About Chelsea

I am a Realtor who is passionate about helping clients buy and sell property in the Portland metro area and beyond. Born and raised in Eugene Oregon, I’ve been lucky to call Portland home for 17 years. I studied geography at Portland State University which gave me unique insights into our city. I love working with buyers to find their ideal home in the perfect neighborhood and I am constantly delighted to find hidden gems in a place I know so well.

As an agent I bring a clear and direct communication style to a sometimes overwhelming process. I started my real estate career as a transaction coordinator which gave me a lot of empathy for both buyers and sellers. From navigating multiple offers to negotiating a repair addendum, I am fighting hard for my clients every step of the way.

In my free time I love exploring Mt. Tabor with my pitbull, Hank, cheering on the Blazers and eating copious amounts of sushi.


Why Work With Us?

Here’s what our satisfied customers are saying about us:

No-nonsense advocate for her clients
Chelsea is a no-nonsense advocate for her clients. She takes on difficult tasks with ease (in my case, helping ensure a change in lender did not disrupt a transaction), allowing her clients to relax in the knowledge that they are in good and trusting hands. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her for any property transactions under consideration.

Chelsea helped me find a house with four bedrooms, in a central neighborhood, at a good price. I started to think it wasn’t possible but Chelsea never lost hope and was patient as I weighed the choices. I would highly recommend working with Chelsea.

Lilly T., November 2018

Chelsea consistently went above and beyond to help us find and purchase a home in Portland’s competitive housing market. Working against a very tight deadline and moving with our parents in tow, we had complex needs in a city with an abundance of ADUs, but few suitable options within our price range for long-term, multi-generational living in a quiet walkable neighborhood. Chelsea was a wealth of local knowledge and was able to help us find a home meeting exactly the criteria we were searching for in a perfect neighborhood.

Chelsea was very organized and was able to expedite the home inspection and sewer scope, and gave sound advice for negotiating the sale and concessions following the home inspection. When the homebuying process was at its bleakest and most uncertain, Chelsea provided a reassuring presence and advocated for us to ensure we received the best possible terms. We were ultimately able to get the house we wanted despite competing offers.

She took the initiative to get bids from several contractors for issues revealed during the home inspection to help inform our request for a concession from the seller. This resulted in us recouping a large portion of the necessary expenses, keeping the house from exceeding our budget. Again, this was all done against a tight deadline. Even after the sale, Chelsea has continued to help us navigate getting those repairs done with her extensive contacts here in Portland. She really does know everyone.

Shana O., October 2018

I am a first time home buyer and Chelsea was amazing to work with. She helped me navigate through all the questions and surprises that come up when buying a home. I would recommend her to all my loved ones!

Liz V., August 2018

We worked with Chelsea through the course of our home buying process, and she has been fantastic! Chelsea attended all of our inspections, was our primary point of contact for questions and negotiations, and she was such an advocate for us. It was our first purchase of a home, and when there were things that we didn’t understand (or thought were acceptable) she was right there to advocate for us and push back on the seller to address issues and questions. She saved us money by negotiating the closing costs even when we would have just gone blindly accepting of the seller’s offer! As a first time home buyer, we definitely had a lot of questions, and our property had some unique challenges that make it a complex sell. We couldn’t have been happier with our relationship with Chelsea and Paris Realty Group.

Laura Y., May 2018

Chelsea was thorough, thoughtful, highly responsive and friendly throughout our hunt and acquisition process. More importantly, her positive and reassuring manner was a stabilizing force throughout the months of potentially stressful searching and finalizing. I couldn’t recommend her highly enough.

Josh K., May 2018

Chelsea is very attentive and knowledgeable. In our time working together she always had a ton of patience for my many questions and took the time to make sure that her answers were sufficient and that I had gained an understanding. I would highly recommend Chelsea to anyone looking to buy or sell a home!

Tom M., April 2018

Chelsea helped my husband and I find our diamond in the rough even though we had a very small budget for a house in Portland. She was always kind and quick to respond- even when we became those annoying clients! We feel very lucky to have had Chelsea’s help making sure that our monthly payments go toward equity instead of into a landlord’s pocket. Now we are enjoying polishing up this gem of a home on a big, beautiful lot that our dog loves to run around in. Thank you, Chelsea!
