About The O'Rourkes
Alyssa and Michael moved to Portland from Williamstown, MA in 1972.
From 1972 through 1997 they lived in 6 homes in 6 different Portland neighborhoods.
In 1997 they downsized from a large home in the West Hills and became “Pearl Pioneers”. For over 15 years they lived and worked through the Pearl District’s incredible transformation. As a result, the O’Rourke’s have a vast knowledge of the Pearl’s history, each condo building’s personality and the nuances of city living.
2011 brought them a great opportunity to sell their city townhome and build a dream home for their “next chapter”. They purchased a one level ranch style home in a small subdivision of 25 residences built in the 1960's. They completely re-built the home and the surrounding gardens to their design.
Alyssa and Michael have over 35 years combined experience as Real Estate Brokers. They are familiar with all segments of the greater Portland market and have represented both buyers and sellers in virtually every neighborhood and price range. They are both familiar with the relocation process as it relates to people moving to Portland.
Alyssa is a transplant from Greenwich CT. She is an avid golfer, enthusiastic cook, voracious reader and crossword puzzle whiz. She is an active volunteer for several not-for-profit concerns.
Michael was born in Portland and was raised in Tacoma WA. Prior to joining The Hasson Company he had a 35-year career in the advertising agency business. He enjoys golf, reading, gardening and keeping his 32 year old BMW in running order.
