Originally from Southern California, Rio immediately felt at home in Portland after landing in the St. Johns neighborhood in 2016. Between the lush landscapes, phenomenal food, and friendly residents, it didnt take long for them to fall in love with the city. After working in the service industry for over a decade, real estate became a natural next step in Rios career. They are fiercely empathetic and their good sense of humor becomes apparent within minutes of chatting with them. Through their previous experience as a barber, barista, and bartender (just to name a few), Rio has come to highly value building and maintaining a relationship with each and every one of their clients.
In their free time, Rio can often be found snuggled up on the couch with their cats, playing video games or enjoying a classic horror movie marathon. They have a genuine appreciation for Portlands ever-changing seasons, taking them in while driving through the countryside or walking through one of Portlands many gorgeous parks.
Rio is meticulous when it comes to the details. Whether youre looking for a groovy, wood panelled Mid-Century Modern or a hauntingly beautiful Victorian, they are determined to make your vision a reality. With dreams of one day becoming a homeowner themself, Rio can truly empathize with those who have similar goals. They are here to take the stress out of home buying and make this fun, exciting journey a breeze for you!

Working with Río was truly a pleasure! This was our first time buying a house, and Río held us with such thoughtful care. They were so helpful in always answering our questions, and truly making time to ensure there was never any confusion. When we found “the one”, Río advocated for us HARD. We got our offer accepted under asking price, and then they were able to negotiate an awesome credit for us based on things that came up from the inspection. We trust Río completely and always felt like they had our backs. They were super communicative, thoughtful, and knowledgeable. If we were ever to be looking for another house in PDX, we’d hire Río again in a heartbeat. HIGHLY recommend this amazing human!
