Marisa La Fata - Scout Realty Co.

The buyer looking for someone little magical won’t go wrong working with Marisa! Realtor and Shamanic healer in one, she cares deeply and integrates a mindful, heart-centered approach to her clients and their home buying experience.

Originally from Ventura, California, family and music brought Marisa to Portland. Her love of the seasons in the Northwest and walkability of Portland neighborhoods has kept her here. Like many realtors, Marisa’s mom was in the business.  After years of working at mental health institutions, she made the change to help people in a different way. 

Marisa helped us find an amazing home that we absolutely love. As a first time home buyer, we were pretty lost, and she was able to tell us what was stuff we could work with, and what to say no to. She was able to talk us through stressful times and was super helpful with us buying from out of state, and not being able to actually stay in Portland during this process (because of COVID-19). She was absolutely amazing, super fun to talk to, super helpful, super knowledgeable, and very very patient with us! Would definitely recommend her!  -Coli (out of state buyer)

Marisa loves providing education and advocacy for her buyer, countering the sometimes bad reputation the industry can have. As a first time home buyer specialist and relocation specialist, she has helped many people call Portland home. This niche requires an extensive amount of work and expertise, and Marisa has it in spades. She loves really caring for her clients and proving them with an experience that leaves them feeling fully supported the entire way through. With Marisa’s background in mental health work, you know she is always considering the client’s experience and well being.
