About Shawn Skinner

Shawn is a dedicated professional with a passion for helping buyers and sellers successfully navigate the Portland real estate market over the past 20 years. His love of all things real estate shows when trying to find the perfect Portland home for his clients.

Whether it’s a historic craftsman in Irvington or a nice starter home in the Foster/Powell neighborhood he has you covered. With a deep understanding of the diverse neighborhoods that make this town amazing he prides himself in utilizing the latest technology to find the best Portland home for sale. He also developed a strategic process to help Portland area home sellers maximize their return on investment by using creative marketing, technology, and grass-root campaigns to get the job done!

Shawn’s love of real estate and construction was sparked by the family at the age of ten, when he helped his Dad build houses…or mostly clean up the construction site. He also learned the Realtor ropes at a young age, stuffing flyer boxes and helping with open houses for his older sister who is a successful Realtor in Central Washington. Shawn went on to buy his first investment property at the age of 19 and the rest is history!

Today, Shawn has nearly 20 years of real estate sales experience guiding clients with honest effective negotiations, high quality marketing, and client focused results. Shawn was named one of Portland's Five Star Realtors featured in Portland Monthly Magazine for 9 years in a row and was awarded Oregon’s top 100 most influential real estate agents. Shawn also volunteers at these amazing organizations; Abby’s Closet, Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation, and Habitat for Humanity.
