More About Me

Betsy Menefee Rickles

Portlander to the core, I was born and raised in Portland and am a native Oregonian and Pacific Northwest enthusiast. Although I spent a number of years out of state, I've always considered Oregon home. I attended the University of Oregon (yes, I am a proud Duck!) with a degree in Art History and History of Architecture. My studies created an ongoing passion and enthusiasm for the beauty of NW regional art and architecture.

My early professional career was based in the financial markets at Merrill Lynch, working as a stock broker. Real estate has given me the opportunity to combine my passion for Portland and my aesthetic sensibilities with a strong financial background geared towards identifying sound investments.

Communication, attentiveness and enthusiasm are the hallmarks of my professional reputation. And, I take great pride in my client's confidence that I am always available to address their needs and concerns and am dedicated to their utmost satisfaction.

In the end though, my clients are the inspiration for what I do - I love the process of helping families make their next move, to find that house that they can call home. And on the sale side, to do my best to make the transition from their family home to the next, a gentle one.
