Alia Marie Hazen
Broker + Co-owner
Growing up in SW’s Healy Heights, my world was small – the park, my friends nearby, and school. To this day, the people who lived as far as my bike would carry me are my closest friends, so this neighborhood will always have my heart.

Boise-Eliot is home to the Scout office, and I love the vibrancy and energy of this district with all of the restaurants, bars and boutiques within a short walk. Don’t miss the soft-serve at my current fave, Lovely’s Fifty Fifty.
I love the outer NE Portland neighborhoods like Argay, Hazelwood, Parkrose, etc. In addition to these great pockets of ranch and mid-century homes, there’s a vibrant funkiness and old Portland feeling to the area that’s missing from the more polished parts of town.

The tall cedar and fir trees make Mt. Tabor feel like home. It is still close to shops and restaurants on Hawthorne and I love the small town feel of Montavilla with the farmers market and local businesses.
Buckman is my favorite neighborhood. I love the old homes where you can tell families have lived in for many years. Also, you feel like you are right in the middle of Portland!
Beautiful and accessible, Piedmont is my favorite Portland neighborhood. Its tree lined streets and architecturally rich houses have been stewarded by working class folks for decades.
Creston Kenilworth hits the spot for me in Portland good living – 2 parks, Reed college close by, an outdoor pool, Yokos Sushi- I love what a perfect blend of small cozy neighborhood it is with some of the best parks, eateries and events easily accessible.
Having grown up in SW, I’m a huge fan of west Portland as a place for people looking to expand their searches. You may have to forgo multiple hip bars within walking distance, but you can get yourself a big yard and lots of privacy. Don’t be scared by the non-grid streets!
Concordia is closest to my heart and where I feel most at home. It offers easy, direct access to many other parts of the city while still being a village of its own with a bounty of amenities on NE Alberta Street.

Mt Tabor is my favorite Portland place to be. It’s a great place to run, walk and be in nature with my partner and dog. Bonus: it’s close to one of my favorite treats, Ruby Jewel on Hawthorne and the Montavilla neighborhood to the East!
Montavilla is the Portland neighborhood that most reminds me of the small town where I grew up. It has everything I need: movies at the Academy, pizza at East Glisan, coffee at Bipartisan, and treats at Hungry Heart Bakery. The convenience of trails and views at Mt Tabor seals the deal!
Kenton is my favorite emerging neighborhood. I bike or walk to the Kenton Farmers Market and love what’s happening on the cobblestone path (N. Denver) where there’s a library, fun retail (mostly recycled/vintage goods), kid-friendly Posie’s cafe, and places to go have a bite and a beer!
The Beaumont-Wilshire neighborhood has grown so much and has attracted so many local businesses to it. There are farmers markets, bars, restaurants, parks, and local shops, it feels like home!
I love the Kerns neighborhood in NE Portland. I love the lushness of the tree-lined streets and accessibility to everything: a movie at the Laurelhurst theater, great restaurants, coffee shops, pet stores, markets + more.
