NW Home Collective’s vision is to transform your home into a dream home! 

We take a holistic approach to service in Real Estate and Design, serving Portland Metro to the Willamette Valley in Oregon. We can help you buy, sell, invest, and renovate any home on any budget! Sharing our 18 years of experience in Design, Construction, and Real Estate we offer a unique perspective – helping you find the potential in a home or renovate your forever home. 

We also have a very special program for our home sellers! We will design and add valued improvements to your home, prior to going on the market. My goal is to maximize your return on investment and sell your home fast! We also offer the option for our team to fund your project and manage the entire process.

Key areas that generate the highest return on investment include exterior upgrades to increase your curb appeal, kitchen remodels, and bath remodels. According to the statistics in the Portland Oregon market, these updates generate between 80% – 120% returns on your investment. Direct ROI is not the only variable, as it is also important to consider how long your home sits on the market and the cost of potential repairs negotiated during a transaction. 

Let’s be clear, as a seller your home needs to appeal to a large market of buyers, and your marketing needs to be on point! Nearly all buyers shop online for homes, and if your home does not photograph well then you will get a very limited pool of interested buyers. Even in a hot real estate market! Consumers want to see that a home is being upgraded to keep up with current trends and that major repairs will not be needed. Your home needs to be updated, cleaned, preferably staged, and professionally photographed to stand out. The goal is to get as many eyes on your home, interested and submit strong qualified offers. You want a buyer that loves your home so much, they are not going to ask for petty repairs or risk falling out of contract for any reason. A lot of prep goes into getting your home in this condition, so it’s vital to work with a Realtor that knows what they’re doing and has the team to deliver great results!

So many of my DIY clients don’t realize how complicated these projects are until you are already in the middle of them, typically over budget, and the project taking far longer than you originally planned. This is where planning and professional help make a HUGE difference! As an Interior Designer, Construction Manager, and Realtor – I work with you to create a budget and make design decisions that are going to make the best sense for your local market. I then bring the funds and team to execute that design plan in a timely manner, so we can get your home on market and under contract fast at an amazing price!

Let’s say you are in the market to buy a new home, and you have the itch to renovate and personalize the home to meet your long-term goals. Whether you are looking to put in some sweat equity or hire a General Contractor to make the changes – I can help you run the numbers and consider design options before you even purchase. Once purchased, I can help you finalize a design plan, hire the contractors, and make the changes. If your current budget does not allow such renovations, I can help you prioritize your renovation goals or even direct you towards great renovation loan options to reach your goals. 

I also love working with Investors who want to build their rental property or fix n flip portfolios. I have personally flipped properties and own rentals for business purposes, and I love coaching others to develop a successful system to reach their goals. Building long-term wealth through property ownership is a fantastic investment and creative way to diversify your investment portfolio. I guarantee you it is not as easy as it looks on HGTV, but with the right team, you can learn and develop a process that can be repeated with great success!
