Having started out in corporate America working at US Bank for 10-plus years, Amy has spent the last several years working with clients to get their homes ready for sale. From ‘de-cluttering’ and stylizing interiors to setting up homes for custom photography and other marketing activities, she has an outstanding track record of positioning homes to maximize resell value.
This successful career created a natural progression for Amy McMahon to attain her real estate license and represent buyers and sellers in the Portland marketplace.
Amy understands life changes and transitions can be overwhelming — whether moving to a new city (She has moved for her husband's jobs to Miami, Pittsburgh & Connecticut), a new neighborhood or simply downsizing on your current street — her positive attitude and calm nature helps put her clients at ease as they go through the process.
"We have purchased two homes with Amy and sold one. In the course of the first purchase, we needed immediate estimates for major repairs. Amy identified and quickly found help for us from her deep network of expert contractors. Her broad experience in the Portland housing market is in valuable; she provided consistent and reliable advice on pricing and timing for our sale, and arranged staging that made a huge difference. She has a can-do and hands-on approach that makes it easy and pleasurable to work with her. She is also a delightful source of information on all things Portland!"
"We made the absolute right choice in selecting Amy McMahon to sell our home and downsize."
"Thankful for Amy and everything she did for us! From staging and marketing of our old house, to helping us get settled in our new home!"
“Thank you for getting our acts and home together for the big sell! You were indispensable & can’t imagine another move without your help!”
“Thank you for all of your hard work, patience and perseverance in our continuing home search for a home in Portland. We enjoy your positive attitude, good humor, and your willingness to show us homes at the last minute.”
Jean & Elaine
“Thanks so much for all you have done for our family! This is life changing!”

“We are very happy that we chose Amy when we sold our home. We were moving out of state and had to leave before the house was ready to show. Then COVID 19 hit and it was a rush to get it on the market. This was our first selling experience and she helped in every way. We were very happy with the closing price and she was very professional throughout. Thanks Amy (and Kim)!”

“We had a great first-time selling experience thanks to Amy's great services. We sold our house in 4 days and totally recommend her if you are looking for a professional experience. Amy was very helpful in the process so we understood every step along the way. She has strong knowledge of the real estate in the Portland area, particularly NW/Forest Heights. We had to travel to Europe during our negotiation process, and Amy was always very responsive, despite the 9-hour time difference. All around a smooth, efficient experience!”
“After listing our house with a different agent and lowering the price multiple times we decided to take it off the market. The following year we hired Amy to try selling it. She immediately had some very thoughtful suggestions to help potential buyers visualize their dream home. When we agreed she took over and orchestrated the entire transformation which resulted in a full price offer. Funny thing is the buyers looked at the house the year before. The small touches made all the difference. Closing was a breeze as once again Amy just handled everything. Amy also helped us buy our new home. We loved the location, but not the kitchen or interior finishes. Amy helped us visualize what could be done with the space and even helped us hire contractors to complete the project. It turned out amazing. Thanks Amy!!!”
Amy helped us to sell and buy a new house when we decided we wanted to downsize. She was hands on with staging and getting the house ready to sell. She was flexible and open minded when we thought we wanted a fixer then decided to look for new properties. When we had buyers for our house we had a closing date without having a house to move into. When we did find a house to purchase Amy negotiated with both parties so that we could move out of our old house and move into new house before it officially closed so we didn't need to move twice. That was priceless! She listens and understands the stress of home buying and selling. She is willing to learn and loves a new challenge. Thank you Amy!!
