As a lifelong NE Portlander and community-minded thinker, my roots in this city run deep. The experiences I gained working in construction, management and nonprofit leadership all translated neatly to real estate, and have led me to a top-1% ranking among Portland realtors. My focus is on helping you make choices that will meet both your immediate needs and long-term goals—while keeping your costs low. In short, I’m someone who cares deeply about my community, and I’m committed to making it a great place to live.


Heidi Effmann - Licensed Operations Manager

Finding creative ways to help people fulfill their hopes and dreams has always been my calling—first in finance, and now in real estate. I’m an ardent believer in the power of healthy and frequent communication, and love hearing what’s important to clients, so I can make sure their needs are met. I’m thrilled to be part of a team that feels the same way.


Amy Weaver - Licensed Broker, Field Manager

Born and raised in Portland as a member of a large real estate family—I’m a third-generation realtor—I have as deep a passion for helping our town grow as I do for helping you and the place you call home. I am excited to bring my experience, energy and love for Portland to the PDX Works team, and all of our clients.


Michael Kafoury - Licensed Buyer Specialist

Portland has always been my home; I was born and raised in the NE Portland neighborhood of Irvington, and have strong family roots in the local community. My work background has been diverse—everything from politics to sales, nonprofit management to basketball coaching—but the aspects they all have in common are a sense of service and the drive to build deep relationships with people. I bring those and my varied skills to work every day to help my clients meet their home ownership goals. In my spare time I continue to volunteer and work with multiple nonprofits, coach youth basketball, and stay active in and around our fair city.


Prescoln Visathep - Licensed Buyer Specialist

I am a Portland native with a passion for promoting homeownership and financial literacy. My background is in banking, where I developed expertise in sales and marketing and a working knowledge of finance. Growing up in the neighborhood of Foster-Powell has instilled in me a sense of community and pride in where I live. Working in real estate allows me to share that experience with others while helping them achieve the personal and financial milestone of buying a home. In my free time, I enjoy photography, snowboarding and riding motorcycles.
