Licensed in Oregon
“The favorite part of my job are negotiations. I love turning difficult situations into successful transactions and achieving the best possible outcome for my clients in the most professional way. I advocate for my clients and my every day mantra is that my every action is a reflection of my client’s goals, decisions, and ethics.” Luda moved to Portland in 2003 and prior to attaining her dream job within the Real Estate industry, enjoyed a great career in Marketing. She now successfully leverages that experience and knowledge in finance and marketing in her chosen profession. When not working, Luda enjoys trying to keep up with her two children, speaks Russian, lifts heavy weights and improves on her gymnastics moves. When it comes to taking things slow and relaxing, there is nothing better than just digging away in her garden!


Paris Otremba LinkedInZillow

Licensed in Oregon
In operations is where I thrive. In the guts of the of the story. Stepping back, looking at the big picture, planning, and working the plan. Being a support for all areas of the process is where I shine. I have over 22 years of experience working in customer service, operations, and supply chain environments. What motivates me professionally isn’t to achieve perfection, but rather provide the best possible service to my clients with a promise to do my best. A promise to provide consistency, flexibility, and transparency through genuine relationship. I lead with trust, and like to finish with friendship. The story doesn’t always go the way we intended, I find joy in helping create a story that’s efficient and executed gracefully.
