Sharon Storey specializes in finding and selling residential development land and infill lots to builders, and then marketing the finished new homes. In addition to real estate sales and marketing, Sharon provides a variety of services to her builder clients including land use planning consulting, material selection and interior design consultation. For her home buyers and sellers, she utilizes a team of vetted professionals to give clients the tools they need to make their transition seamless. While she works throughout the Portland area, she focuses primarily on Lake Oswego, West Linn and southwest Portland.
With more than 30 years experience in the real estate industry, Sharon has covered the gamut from working for a local contractor/interior designer, owning her own interior design company and managing a family property investment company. As a Project Manager in land development, she was part of a team responsible for planning, zoning, and developing over 3,000 acres of land in a large PUD, and various new residential neighborhoods. All these experiences contribute to her extensive understanding of the development and construction process and vision for the potential of each individual property.
Growing up in a family that has been active in real estate development, architecture, interior design, and construction for at least five generations means that Sharon’s interest and understanding of real estate and construction started early. She holds a Master of Business Administration from the Darden School of Business at the University of Virginia and an Associate degree in Applied Science in Interior Design from Portland Community College, as well as a BA in Vocal Music from Pacific Lutheran University.
Community service is Sharon’s way of cherishing the rich heritage and bright future of the Portland area. Sharon is an active member of the Executive Committee of the Professional Women in Building Council of the Portland Metropolitan Homebuilders Association and serves on the board of her homeowners’ association in the Mountain Park neighborhood of Lake Oswego. She is involved in various organizations that support education, is enthusiastically learning to sing jazz music, and enjoys competing with her dragon boat team.
Through her business growth and numerous personal moves, Sharon has a unique perspective and appreciation for the realities of relocating, building a new community, and putting down roots. She believes that the work she does is not about her; its about the communities, neighborhoods and individuals whose lives her work touches.
