About Host Realty
In 2019, nestled in the heart of Portland, Oregon, a fresh and dynamic idea blossomed in the realm of real estate— a boutique agency called Host Realty. Inspired by the belief that true hospitality can transform one of life's most significant and often stressful transactions, Host was born. The founding vision was simple: change the way people buy and sell homes by infusing every interaction with genuine warmth, open communication, and integrity.
This dream was realized by two friends, Michael Goeckner and Elizabeth Fanning. Michael, with his impressive 25-year history in real estate and development, brought his industry expertise and market savvy. Elizabeth, a veteran Principal Broker with a rich background in hospitality, brought her client-centric philosophy and knack for making people feel at home. Together, they joined forces, seamlessly merging their unique strengths to create a new paradigm in real estate.

From the very beginning, their aim for Host Realty was to create more than just a brokerage—it was to establish a home for clients. Michael's understanding of the real estate landscape and Elizabeth's ability to foster connections meant that every client would experience an unparalleled level of service. It was about inviting clients into not just new homes, but new lives and communities, truly living up to the name Host.
