Hi — I’m Lauren Perreault (which looks like it should be pronounced “purr alt” but is actually “purr oh” — just think of me as your real estate “pro” and you’ll get it right!) I love the smells of fresh paint & new cut lumber, old vintage homes, and using my knowledge to help people with their real estate needs. Our family is passionate about animals (together with my daughters, we have 4 cats, a dog, and a horse), politics (we lean left, if it matters to you), and being of service to our fellow humans, as that’s what we are all ultimately here for I think.
I’m the Principal Broker for the Perreault Group/PDX Homes for Sale which in turn is part of RE/MAX Select, located in the heart of the Pearl District AND also part of RE/MAX Riverside in sister city Vancouver, Washington.
After a first career in high tech aerospace management, I wanted a job where I could do more good, so I became a Realtor in 2005 and have been loving the business of helping people achieve their real estate dreams ever since.
With family in Grants Pass and Medford and a daughter who is a fourth year student in the Veterinary Medical School in Corvallis and another one who is a news anchor in Tri Cities area of Washington, plus being completely in love with all things Portland, my architect husband and I decided to move to the most perfect part of the U.S. in mid 2015.
I was a Top Producer in the highly competitive beach cities area of Los Angeles before the move. I’m also a RE/MAX Hall of Fame agent. As a consequence, I have extensive knowledge of how to get homes sold quickly and for top dollar and how to win buyers bidding wars with innovative negotiating strategies. I am now thrilled to be deploying all that knowledge to the Portland real estate market and to be able to live in this beautiful area (I’m in the Hillside neighborhood!)
I have a degree in Mechanical Engineering from Michigan State University, an MBA from University of Southern California Marshall School of Business, and hold advanced real estate credentials including Certified Residential Specialist (CRS), Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist (CLHMS), Global Marketing Agent (GMA), Graduate Realtor Institute (GRI), Certified Distressed Property Expert (CDPE), Accredited Home Staging Specialist (AHS), and many others. My passion for learning also has me in an elite coaching program (all good players need coaches, even Olympians!) by the #1 coaching program with many of the top agents in the U.S., so I can continually bring more and better tools and techniques to help my clients achieve their goals.
Why not let me help you with yours?
