WHO MANAGES YOUR LARGEST INVESTMENT
Who manages your largest investment is the most important question you can ask. Who is North Star? We are Real Estate investors with high end portfolios of our own. Our first-hand experience stretches over multiple decades and we have pretty much seen it all. Managing from an owner’s perspective is vital; we are not a company out to make a quick buck, we were built for results. North Star is not a discount property management company. Our processes and procedures have been honed over many years in response to what we as owners need to be profitable and successful. This knowledge is what we now provide for you. Our operations team is the very best in the business, with cross trained skills and a wealth of experience. Property management is not our job, it is our passion. Our goal is to place the best tenant at the highest market rent, as soon as possible.
Kate controls one of the most important aspects of the management process: daily accounting. However, bookkeeping is just one of her talents. With an eye for business and a global view of our client needs, Kate has a hand in everything at North Star – from marketing, to accounting, to operational procedures. As the person in charge of collecting rents, Kate leads our mantra of “firm but fair” with our tenants and is the first step in creating the productive relationship between owners, manager and tenants.

New Owner Meetings
The idea for North Star started when Quinn could not find a property management company that fit the needs of his family portfolio of homes. With a passion to create a company with an owner-centric view, adoption of current technology and streamlined processes, North Star became the fastest growing high end property management company in the Portland area. Quinn has two great kids and is married to the woman of his dreams. (He had to chase her for 8 years).
Kirk was the encouragement and knowledge behind the accelerated start and success of North Star. He has stayed on with the company as both a consultant and mentor to all employees. As the glue that holds it all together, he continues to advise and push North Star into ever increasing areas of success. Kirk and his wife Erin have two kids (Quinn and John) and four grandkids, all who live just a few houses away from them.
