Have you ever looked back at your life and realized everything that happened along the way was preparing you to do exactly what you’re doing right now?
That’s how Chaney Compher feels about her career as a real estate broker.
Chaney earned her real estate license in 2015 and says that her decade of experience as a certified life coach and yoga instructor perfectly prepared her to guide real estate clients through the emotional and complex process of buying or selling a home.
“The wisdom and tools that I gained from the self-improvement industry help me connect with how my real estate clients are feeling in a very empathetic and intuitive way,” says Chaney. “I’m able to meet you where you’re at emotionally, identify your needs, and create a unique plan that makes you feel seen, heard, and valued.”
Chaney says that buying or selling a home is often part of a big life transition—like getting divorced or moving to an assisted living facility—and works hard to build confidence with clients who feel especially vulnerable. “From the start, I establish trust with my clients by being authentic and relatable so that they can see I truly care about their wellbeing.”
Chaney’s clients also appreciate her ability to navigate challenges and create innovative solutions so that they’re happy with the outcome. “I’ve always looked to the bright side in life; what others see as a roadblock, I see as an opportunity. I’m fueled by helping my clients get to a better place, like finding a home where their grandkids can visit or making it possible for a friend to look back at everything she went through to get a home and see that the struggle was worth it.”
“Real estate is part of what I’m called to do in life, and I had to go through my previous career and life experiences to become a really good real estate broker.”
Chaney lives in Washougal, Washington, with her husband and three sons. She describes herself as one-part redneck and one-part hippy and feels equally at home in high heels or Birkenstocks. A free-spirited nature-lover, she enjoys exploring the Columbia River Gorge, Mount Hood, and the city of Portland, Oregon.
