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.
She and her husband Brad recently downsized and moved to a Townhome on the NW Waterfront after having lived with their two children in the Forest Heights Neighborhood for 20 years. Her son, Gavin, recently graduated from college in Los Angeles and her daughter is a Senior at Lincoln High School. Amy has served as the Auction Chair for the Forest Park Elementary Foundation and Lincoln High School. She is also the innovator behind Lincoln's annual Flock Party, which brings all aspects of the downtown high school together with business, parent groups and alumni. Amy has an amazing network, with a knack for connecting people and opportunities. Her unique skills in that area allow her to bring a concierge level of service to her partnerships with clients.
"I've moved many times in my life from coast to coast and can relate to the huge amount of effort that it takes and I love making life's transitions easier and as stress free as can be. I'm in the perfect job!"
Amy has been a presenter to Habitat For Humanity Homeowners on How To Decorate On A Budget, and presents classes on Downsizing for Retirement and Selling & Prepping Your Home For Sale.
Portland life suits Amy McMahon to a tee and in her spare time can be found working her way through the list of the Oregonian's Top 40 Restaurants, or figuring out how to master social media as a person of a certain age!
