About | Turner Team | Portland Metro Area Realtors

Jenny and Charles teamed up as Realtors in 2003. Every year since then we’ve continued to grow and improve the service and expertise we are able to offer you, our clients. In 2010 we incorporated, in part to underscore that real estate is a business, not a part time hobby. Our current business is over fifty percent past client and past client referrals. Earning your repeat business and referrals is our main goal. Our unique team structure allows us to serve the Portland Metro area from SW Washington, through Portland and down to the mid-Willamette Valley. We have the tools and expertise to guide you through any residential real estate transaction.

Alina Aliyar

Oregon Broker – alina@lovejoyrealestate.com Personally, I have had the pleasure of buying and selling (and packing up) four of my own homes in three different states in under fifteen years. Buying & selling a home can be a stressful & anxiety provoking process, but the financial and emotional rewards are plentiful. My goal is to make you sure that you feel empowered, respected, and well informed as you make these decisions. As a French trained chef, I love to nerd out on kitchen layouts and consider the best places for herb & vegetable gardens. As a parent of two, I like to think about practicality, sustainability, and durability. Outside of real estate, I love live performance, gardening, and dad jokes.
