The Madding Homes Team
For the Madding Homes Team, real estate isn’t just a paycheck, it’s a passion! We understand that buying or selling a home is more than just a transaction – it’s a life changing experience. With a client centric approach to buying and selling, we boast a keen eye for opportunity, and the negotiation skills to achieve superior results.
It’s pretty simple: We are professional and client driven. We take great pride in our relationships.
Our primary goal is to earn your trust, then provide you with exceptional service while making sure you feel comfortable every step of the way. We pledge to be in constant communication with you, keeping you fully informed throughout the entire buying and selling process. We work hard and laugh often! We believe that if you’re not left with an amazing experience, we haven’t done our job.
Our Mission Statement
Our philosophy is simple: we are professional and client driven. We pledge to be in communication with our clients, keeping them fully informed throughout the entire buying or selling process. We believe that if you’re not left with an amazing experience, we haven’t done our job. We love to work hard and laugh often! We don’t measure success through achievements or awards, but through the satisfaction of our clients.
Meet John and Karlyn
Life is busy – I get it!
Prior to starting my real estate career, I worked in organizational leadership for a number of non-profit organizations. My background in developing relationships gives me a unique understanding of what individuals and families need.
As a Portland resident since 2009, I am an enthusiastic member of the community and enjoy, soccer, golf, travel, and spending time with my wife and three daughters. I truly enjoy showing my clients what the Portland area has to offer.
I look forward to sitting down with you to discuss the local real estate market and to see if I can help you start the next chapter in your life.
My job is to make things happen!
Whether it’s putting all the pieces together for one of John’s holiday client events or streamlining your transaction through the real estate paper trail, I am the behind-the-scenes creative and administrative support for Madding Homes. My past lives as Small Business Owner, Marketing Director, Interior Designer, Graphic Designer, and Executive Assistant have all merged into one!
On the weekends you will find me relaxing with my husband, dogs, and grown kids at our “escape” second home along the Columbia River.
