Amanda Folkestad, Realtor
As a child my love for homes and interiors began. I remember spending countless hours playing with my dollhouse. Installing wallpaper, light fixtures, carpet and painting. I spent more time as I grew older building cardboard houses out of old scrap boxes. Every detail was attended to, including window panes and roof shingles.
Fast forward 20 years to the beginning of my real estate career. I was in my 20’s and at a crossroads with my life. Real estate felt very natural to me due to my love of homes and people and looking back now it was the perfect thing for me!
As a Portland native and 3rd generation Oregonian I have extensive knowledge of our beautiful city. I even spent a summer working as a walking tour guide in downtown Portland and the underground tunnel system.
Needless to say I love what I do. I love working with people to help them achieve their goals of home ownership. I love looking at homes and presenting them for sale. I enjoy staging and helping my clients get the best value. In the past 12 years I have worked with all types of folks and homes including condos, townhouses, land sales, floating homes, new construction and older homes. I’ve lived all over Portland, even in a floating home on the Columbia river. Now I live in Happy Valley with my family and am a board member with our neighborhood HOA. I completely understand that life changes quickly and so do our housing needs and I’m a firm believer that we should love where we live. I’m here if you need to downsize, upsize, invest or otherwise.
