My husband and I began our lives together living in Lake Oswego and working in Portland. Over 30 years later we chose to return and make the Lake Oswego/Portland area our home and we've never regretted a single moment.
We love everything about this area. In fact, when I'm not busy working with my buyers or sellers, you can find me enjoying one of our fabulous local eateries, wineries or taking our dog for a walk at one of our many local trails, parks or soaking up the sun at the river or just lounging at the lake. The Portland lifestyle truly has something for everyone.
I love to play architect, designer and creative director. And while I'm technically none of those things, I do have a keen sense of design, color and balance. Cultivated through my career in high level sales, negotiations, marketing, over two decades as owner of my own interior design company and CEO of the International Feng Shui Guild.
If we are preparing your home for sale, you can be confident that our marketing materials, strategy and the staging of your home are top-notch. If we are searching for your next home, I'll be listening to your desires and aspirations and keeping an eye out for properties with potential to become that ideal house for you.
Real estate isn't just about selling houses or closing transactions,
real estate is about people and relationships.
Professionalism is in the details. From the moment we begin working together I'll manage the details of your home buying or selling experience ensuring that you get the attention to detail and follow-up you deserve. I'm committed to bringing you the best service I can offer while helping you reach your goals with confidence.
Creativity is understanding what makes each property unique and knowing how to share that with others. You need a partner who knows the neighborhoods, the market and the process. But more importantly, you need a trusted advisor who will get to know you and your homeownership goals.
Communication, honesty and authenticity go hand in hand. My commitment to providing you with the best service begins by communicating clearly and consistently throughout the process – you’ll always know what’s happening and what to expect next.
"Absolutely hands down best house buying experience I've had. Best realtor ever, steers you toward what you visualize, then becomes your friend along the way. Best person, period!! No need to look any further !"
"Laurie's insight and suggestions for our condo sale were exactly what we needed. Her interest and follow up spoke volumes about her commitment and energy. We look forward to a great working relationship as we begin the search for our new home."
"Integrity, honesty and knowledge. When you combine the three, it all adds up to Laurie Bornstein! I was intrigued with the amount of information she shared with me about selling my home. The tips were so useful, I'm certain this is part of the reason we were under contract so quickly. She's a winner, don't hesitate to call her!"
"Laurie’s knowledge and skills are perfect on both sides of the sale, for sellers you have someone whose marketing guidance and staging suggestions will help your home shine for potential buyers. As a buyer Laurie can see past barriers to help you see the potential of a property and how to accentuate the positive attributes to make it your home. I’ve had the pleasure to know and work with Laurie on and off for many years, her guidance has always been spot on. I highly recommend her!"

"Selling a home is stressful, having a realtor you can rely on is important. Your realtor isn't just there to bring qualified buyers, they're there to support you all the way to closing. I've been fortunate to have the opportunity to work with Laurie Bornstein, she delivered exactly what I needed to ease our transition and pave the road forward for my family. We highly recommend her!"

"Laurie is a pleasure to work with. She's knowledgeable, asks the right questions and will take the time to find you the right home. When it comes time to write a contract she's extremely meticulous and works with you to make an offer that's both competitive and one you're comfortable with. In a crazy market Laurie is a real estate ray of sunshine to work with."
