I’ve always enjoyed the process that changes a house into a home and real estate has been the perfect compliment and Portland is the perfect location. I know the challenges of finding the right schools, the right neighborhoods and the right home. I've relocated nationally 8 times, including moving my family, with young children, more than a few times - 5 to be exact!
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, from award winning restaurants and bars to the incredible people, parks and natural beauty all around us. The Portland Lifestyle truly has something for everyone.
My 30 years as a successful entrepreneur and experience in the corporate world has shaped me into the realtor I am today. The knowledge and skills I acquired as founder of my own decorating business, CEO of the International Feng Shui Guild, Creative Director for a children’s start-up, and mentor to women entrepreneurs has given me a powerful and unique foundation to build upon. From marketing, sales and negotiations to design, relocations and real estate, the common thread that runs through all I’ve done is my genuine love for all things home and our connection to it.
Choosing and buying a home isn't just about how it looks. Choosing and buying a home is about how it feels. Home is more than just an address and four walls. Home is a place to make new memories, share old stories and begin the next chapter.
Your story, starts at home...let's begin the next chapter together.
Buy with Confidence
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 needs and desires. This isn't about a house, it's about your future home. You don't want to live with it. You want to love it.
Whether you’re a first-time home buyer, upsizing, downsizing, considering a relocation or an investor, I'll guide you through every step of your real estate journey with professionalism, creativity, a sense of humor and a genuine love for all things home.
Sell with Confidence
You need a partner who knows the selling process, marketing, and negotiations. But more importantly, you need a trusted advisor who understands what's important to you and how to get you there. This is about you and having your best interests in mind and the expertise to accomplish your goals.
When we’re preparing your home for sale you can be confident that my marketing materials, professional photography and staging guidance will be top notch. While searching for your next home, I'll be listening to your desires and aspirations while keeping an eye out for properties with potential to become the ideal home for you.
I'm your advocate, matchmaker and trusted advisor. I'm committed to bringing you the best service I can offer while helping you reach your goals with confidence, on time, on budget and happy!
Real estate isn't just about selling houses or closing transactions,
real estate is about people and relationships.
"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 background is 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!"

We highly recommend her!"
