Lily Donohue - Scout Realty Co.

Lily’s love for real estate sparks from the social aspect of helping others. She “loves connecting people with things they need; connecting people to their future home, to contractors, to their new neighborhood”. She wants her clients to feel that connection long after they move in. Coming from a background in social work and coaching, helping others is a consistent practice that brings her joy.

Lily is incredibly knowledgeable, experienced, and attentive. She advocated for us and our needs and wants without ever inserting her own self into it. She is a superb listener. She spent many hours searching for us, helping us define what we wanted, and answering any question right away.

When Lily isn’t helping clients or coaching swimmers, you can find her hosting dinner parties at her house, enjoying Portland’s best cafes, and going for an outdoor swim. Lily calls Portland home because there isn’t any other place like it. “The fresh air, the wildly overgrown front yards, the bikeability and amazing restaurants – how could you want to live anywhere else?”.

Having patience and an appreciation for the experience makes Lily not only great with all clients, but exceptional with first time home buyers. She encourages buyers to take their time and truly feel comfortable with the major life decision they are making. And what is more beautiful than watching people walk into a home and fall in love?!
