About Dwell Realty Portland

Stefanie Otterson

Realtor® OR & Wa.

I grew up in suburban SW Portland enjoying the outdoors and exploring my neighborhood on foot and on bike. Many of my childhood weekends were also spent at my Yia Yia’s (grandma in Greek) home, a 1926 bungalow in the Laurelhurst neighborhood. This, I feel, was a great balance. I learned to enjoy both the suburban and urban neighborhoods. Looking back I feel it was a perfect way to grow up.

I graduated from the University of Oregon, remained in Eugene and then began a six year career in real estate mortgage lending. While I enjoyed that, I wanted to expand my horizons. With a move back to Portland in the fall of 1999, I left my career in mortgage lending and started working for a few small start-up companies where I learned many essential skills required to run a small business. Although what those companies taught me was invaluable, I was left longing for a more fulfilling career, so I decided to take a leap of faith and re-start my work life with something I love.
In early 2004, I became a licensed Realtor in both Oregon and Washington and in December of 2016 I happily joined Dwell Realty. When I became a Realtor I never imagined it would have turned into such a rewarding career. I have truly found what I love to do.

When I moved back to Portland, I wanted to live in an urban neighborhood, so I purchased a small 1926 bungalow in North Portland which was in need of major remodeling. My friends and family asked me what in the world was I thinking when I chose this fixer. I said “Don’t worry. I have a plan.” With hard work, even more patience, a vision, and an open pocketbook, I have spent the last 17 years making this little “fixer” my home.
What my experience and love of real estate could mean to you, as either a buyer or a seller, is that I will be able to walk you through every step of the transaction process.

I take pride in providing my clients with the best possible service as well as attention to detail. I am proud to say that I earn my clients’ respect by working diligently for them and building a relationship based on trust and hard work. Being a native Portlander gives me the knowledge and unique insight of the city and the surrounding areas that will help you find just the right home as a buyer or get the right price for your home as a seller.

I would like to have the opportunity to meet with you.
