A little about Maureen...
Born and raised in Portland, I understand our strong community spirit and the commitment we all share to keeping our neighborhoods safe and vibrant.
After graduating from Gonzaga University, my career began in public relations and advertising for Borders, Perrin & Norrander, and evolved into sales & marketing for various businesses within different industries. Always having had an entrepreneurial spirit, prior to joining the Hasson team, I ran my own company which manufactured, marketed, and sold baking mixes to Northwest retailers like Fred Meyer, Whole Foods, New Seasons Markets, Zupan’s Markets, and Market of Choice to name a few. Currently, I own Kids Central Kitchen, which provides hands-on opportunities for kids to learn and grow through the fun science of baking with active baking classes and parties.
Having had a life-long interest in the various aspects of residential real estate, the career potential was always brewing in the back of my mind. When the timing was right, I jumped in with both feet. My past business experiences made for an easy transition and I never looked back! Having the privilege to work with a variety of clients on both the buying and selling side, I can honestly say I made the right career decision and joining the Hasson team was the right choice for me. I fully appreciate their high standards, local nature, business culture and social conscience.
My philosophy for success in real estate, and in life, is simple: show respect and gratitude, keep an open ear, practice responsible business management, offer fair and skilled negotiations, and always have a willingness and desire to continue learning and growing.
In my down time, I enjoy travel and adventure with my husband and three children (two of whom are at my alma mater). Our fondest memories are cruising down the Amazon River, hiking parts of the Inca Trail, exploring the ruins in Machu Picchu, touring the Galapagos Islands, and visiting my daughter during her time studying abroad in Florence, Italy.
I am an avid Zag basketball fan, enjoy exploring foods from different cultures, cooking, baking, painting and entertaining friends and family.
