Portland Area Rental Owners Association Board Members

President: Christian Bryant

 I have been working in real estate in the Portland & Salem areas since 2003. My business expertise includes work as a commercial/residential mortgage broker and account executive as well as being a founding partner of Blue Fund Inc. a privately funded commercial finance and venture firm. In 2008, I was working at GreenPoint Mortgage when its parent company, Capital One, closed down its residential and commercial lending arm. Out of work and facing an increasingly difficult real estate market, I took the opportunity to sit back and determine what sort of business would thrive in the current economy and continue to serve the real estate needs of people in the area.

 

What I found was given the volatility of the economy at the time, it was increasingly difficult for people to not only purchase a home but sell their homes as well. What was needed was a property management company committed to helping the new influx of tenants and owners. Together with Coldwell Banker Mt. West Real Estate, I opened Coldwell Banker Mt. West Property Management in February of 2009. Since its inception, the property management company has served thousands of people and has subsequently experienced rapid growth. The main office was started in Salem Oregon, but I quickly grew the company to manage properties from the Northern Oregon border down to Eugene.

 

In February of 2016 I merged with Investment Renovation & Consulting. I have always had a goal of having a company that could serve all of the needs that a property investor may have. We are now able to handle everything from property management, construction and repairs, residential and commercial property sales. We even have distressed homes that we offer at wholesale prices to our clients.


I have always felt that if you are going to run a business in a community that you must give back to that community anyway that you can. Because of this way of doing business I donate a portion of my net profits to charity and I am involved with many boards and commissions. I also believe in donating my time and expertise to lobby on behalf of property investors. I serve on the Landlord/Tenant Coalition that negotiates and writes the laws that change landlord/tenant laws in Oregon.

 I was pursuing a degree in Education at Portland State University, when my life veered onto another and wholly different course (and I never looked back).  I began working for a small privately owned property management company in 2000. We started with less than 25 properties and grew to over 100. During this time I pursued every avenue available to educate myself including:  property management classes, reading every article I could find and studying  the ORS. Chapters on property management until I could claim expertise.  From all of this self-induced learning, I realized I wanted to be involved in the process with which landlord/tenant laws are created and changed.
 
Then in 2014, I stumbled upon this amazing group of people starting up the Portland Chapter of the Oregon Rental Housing Association….and knew that I had to be a part of it. With almost 15 years of property management experience I have seen the trials and tribulations for both owners and tenants. My true passion has become focused on the importance of educating and protecting both owners and tenants surrounding the regulations set forth in the Landlord Tenant Law.

After 15+ years of working for someone else, I (along with my husband) decided to embark on our own adventure; Titan Property Management Services, LLC.  As the owners of Titan Property Management, we are able provide management services for privately owned investments, vacation rentals and commercial buildings.  This encompasses both single family homes and larger complexes including, those with homeowners associations.   Our services also include in-house cleaning, painting, and general maintenance/repairs as well as minor landscaping projects.

 

I have found that not only does PAROA provide this, but goes above and beyond. I’d like to participate in a group that can further my interest in landlord tenant law, and I know this is the group that can assist me in doing so.
 
We are a fun group dedicated to making sure owners get the best possible advice and are well informed of all new laws and updates.

 Social Media Chair: Deidre Sabo

 I accidentally fell into the world of rental properties simply because, when my husband and I met we both owned homes and couldn't decide who would sell!


It was the absolute right choice. I took on the role of property manager and tried to learn everything I could. The more I learned the more interested I became. I loved all aspects of it. Even phone calls and repairs were surprisingly enjoyable as my day job seamlessly carried over and I saw them as more opportunities to make people happy and solve problems. I was getting better and more knowledgeable everyday. We added a 3rd rental property and were planning to add more. Everything was running like clockwork. UNTIL......I had the tenancy that made me question everything I ever thought I knew!  


That is what led me to the wonderful people at PAROA. I registered for a series of classes to be sure I knew how to navigate all the grey areas of the law. I found so much more. Everyone was so knowledgeable, helpful, and passionate about the industry and changing it for they better. I knew I had found the right group of people.  With the support of PAROA, I made it through my rough patch and am more confident and passionate about managing properties than ever.


 I am excited to be part of such a diverse group of people that continue to support and learn from each other. I hope to contribute the skills I have as both a property manager and salon owner  TruesalonNW.com to help make the association that much stronger.
