Katrine Johannessen Ehlen
Katrine Ehlen’s deep understanding of the close-in Portland marketplace has enabled her to exceed her clients’ expectations throughout eight successful years in the real estate business. Well-versed in the transactional nuances involved in both single-family homes and condominiums, Katrine’s clients consistently praise her energy, efficiency, communication, competency, market knowledge, and ability to use technology as an advantage in the deal-making process. Specializing in close-in Portland homes, she began her career working as an associate with two of Portland’s top-producing brokers, gaining a strong base of experience on all sides of the market—buying and selling, multiple product types and across all price ranges. Thanks to her stellar reputation and streamlined approach to transactions, much of Katrine’s business is derived from repeat clients.
A native Oregonian, Katrine grew up in Lake Oswego and now lives in close-in NW Portland with her husband and their newborn daughter and dog. Katrine is a graduate of the University of Oregon, with a major in Journalism-Public Relations and a minor in Business Administration. In addition to real estate, Katrine has enjoyed a side career as a model, primarily in the fit sector. Her major clients include prominent outdoor and sports apparel companies, as well as local fashion lines. In her free time, Katrine enjoys horseback riding, golf and Pilates. She is also active in the community, including past board service for Second Step Housing, and volunteering for Doernbecher Children’s Hospital’s Freestyle Program.
