Last week marked the first anniversary of my joining Living Room Realty, which was a very big deal after nearly 26 years in the same office! Like moving to a new house after many years, changing work homes is exciting. Why’d I make a change after all of those years? Well, I decided it was time to align my workplace with my ideals.
The day I walked in for my first meeting with Jenelle Isaacson, the owner of the company, she greeted me with a warm welcome, a vegan lunch made of freshly harvested, organic greens and an invitation for Bender, my canine companion, to make himself at home.
Things I about LRR:
- It is a local, woman-owned company
- Beautiful offices in awesome locations (Clinton-Division, Alberta, NW & Multnomah Village)
- The Loving Room Fund for charitable giving (more on this in a moment)
- It is very inclusive and gay friendly
- It is super dog friendly
- We are a B Corp (https://bcorporation.net/about-b-corps)
- We recycle and even compost!
- Awesome marketing materials to make listings fly
- Great staff
Little things really make a difference to me. When you meet me at the office you’ll find that we use real glasses, mugs, and towels; skipping all the plastic and paper. By the way, we have a great tea selection, high quality coffee, and even soda stream bubbly. So, let me know when you want to come in and have a cup.
Did you know?
I donate 1% of every commission I earn through our fund to give back to my community. For the next three years our recipients are Rose Haven, Oregon Wild and Urban Gleaners. The really cool part is that when you buy or sell property with me, you get to pick which one of them I will donate to. Which is your favorite?
Gratitude and Honors
It has been a great year and I have met many new colleagues and clients who have become friends. I am so grateful to the fabulous folks I have had the pleasure of working with this past year.

There are many excellent agents at Living Room, so I was delighted to be recognized as one of the top ten achieving brokers in the company. As I approach my 28th year in this business, I can truly say I still love helping people find their way home, and I am glad to have found my way to my work home.
