I serve as Principal Broker for Moran Homes Real Estate Group - a Portland-based team of tenacious and seasoned real estate agents with a combined 25 years of experience. I lead the charge alongside my nephew and business partner, Matt Moran.
I’ve lived with my family in Southeast Portland’s Colonial Heights for many years. I love it here. I’m a short walk from the restaurants on Division Street (like KaTi Thai!) and my dog Bella likes walking me through the labyrinthine rose gardens of Ladd’s Addition. Plus, I can walk to Cinemagic – one of Portland’s classic, charming movie theaters. I’ve found my niche and I’m passionate about helping others find theirs.
This city has so many neat spots that new-to-Portland residents may not know about. Even lifelong Portlanders can get stuck in a rut and forget about the variety of activities (and taste treats) our city has to offer. This is where I can help. My team and I are plugged into the real estate market trends and we can provide tons of reasons why each unique Portland neighborhood is great in its own way. For us, marketing a home and finding homes for buyers is easy because there is so much about this city we love.
After playing Division 1 tennis at University of Oregon, I worked as a tennis pro at multiple clubs across the country. The job brought together my devotion to the game and love of working with people, but wasn’t the right path as I raised my two daughters, Molly and Megan. 14 years ago I found my passion in real estate, where I could use my competitive spirit in negotiations and expertise in coaching to take my clients through the home buying and selling process.
When I’m not working with my clients you can find me on the nearest Pickleball court, trying out a new restaurant with my daughters, or exploring a new part of town for my next blog post on SusieKnowsPdx.com
I love Portland and its beautiful homes. I thrive when showing off the period details in a classic Portland craftsman or sharing the latest list of restaurant openings with my clients. My insights on the city’s growth and the market at large ensures my clients reach their full potential when it comes to their real estate goals - whether that means selling at top dollar or getting the best price when purchasing.

I like great food, local coffee, craft beer, outdoor adventures and riding my bike all over town so --big surprise-- I've never left Portland. (Except that time I was a commercial fisherman in Alaska.) It’s my passion for Portland that makes it fun and easy to help others find their perfect place here.
My huge family tree roots itself just off of Southeast Hawthorne Boulevard and now I live with my wife, Anna, and our two daughters in a house with a big backyard in Northeast Portland. I like waking up early on the weekend and taking the kids on a bike ride to Jim & Patty’s to pick out a pastry to surprise Mom with.
I found my home here and want to help you find yours. Sometimes that means buying, sometimes selling. Sometimes both! Whatever your needs are, I can help. My knowledge of Portland neighborhoods, expertise in problem-solving, and my open, friendly communication style are what helped me recently sell my 100th home.
