FOUNDING & FUTURE
The Latitude Team was founded with an idea of bringing a variety of real estate services under one roof to deliver incredible value to its clients and community. In 2014, what started as a need for top-notch professional property management to service their own multifamily properties in Portland, Oregon, the founders launched Latitude Property Management, and haven’t looked back since. Eventually embracing the demand from their clients, residents, and colleagues seeking their expertise in the marketplace as skilled negotiators, marketers, brokers, managers, and investors, they decided to form a team that leverages these integrated services.
The Latitude Team will continue to identify and create innovative real estate solutions while never losing sight of the ultimate goal: To help people live a life of Latitude.
HOMEOWNERS & INVESTORS
When we dissected the elements that made up a life of latitude, we realized that our physical environment plays a major role in our success as human beings. Real estate impacts nearly every aspect of our lives from the spaces we inhabit and work, the commercial centers we dine and shop, to the parks and wilderness areas we recreate. That’s why our work as real estate professionals really means sustainable development practitioners.
Our services extent from homebuyers and sellers to investors and institutions to help people secure their financial futures, create healthy and vibrant spaces, and give back to our communities.
