I manage all aspects of the transition with confidence and care, always mindful of my clients’ comfort zone. If you are new to the process I will take extra time to get you up to speed and am always available for questions along the way. Simply put, I am absolutely dedicated to making your dreams come true.

Let us exceed your expectations and make your dreams come true

Lara James, MBA

Owner and Licensed Oregon Broker

My family has lived in the Portland Metro area, specifically Lake Oswego, for years. Our two kids have gone to the local schools, our activities and circle of friends are here and I feel lucky to be here. I love sharing my experience with my clients. If you are new to the process I will take extra time to get you up to speed and am always available for questions along the way. I would love to offer up my knowledge and connect you to my network. Need a plumber or landscaper? I’ll hook you up. Have questions about a neighborhood? Hit me up. When I’m not working, I can be found volunteering in Lake Oswego schools, spending time with my husband and kids, reading a book, cooking for friends or enjoying the outdoors.
