Tomasina Porotesano

  • Tomasina Porotesano worked as a parole officer for 17 years helping underserved children and families in Multnomah County make better choices. She found the experience rewarding, but wanted a career with more flexibility and turned to real estate. “You might be surprised that there are many similarities between my role as a parole officer and real estate broker,” says Tomasina. “I’m a thoughtful advisor who expertly guides you through a tough process, and helps you make a life-changing decision to get to a better place.”  

    Tomasina emphasizes building trust in her client relationships. “It’s important that clients trust me enough to share their hopes and dreams,” she said. “Trust begins with listening, so I ask a lot of open-ended questions to get to know what your goals are while withholding judgment and showing compassion.”

    For each client, Tomasina develops a custom plan. “I think about whether or not you can really afford the mortgage, if the neighborhood is safe for you and your loved ones, and if the home is a wise investment,” she said. “I want to set you up to live your best life.”

    Tomasina has lived in SW Washington with her husband and two sons for 20 years but she was born and raised on the island of American Samoa and believes her island upbringing influences her career choices. She says, “Everyone looked out for each other in my village. I may have left the island, but I still hold onto those values and my decision to become a broker is a direct reflection of how much I value helping others.”
