Darla Andrews

Owner

Where I’m From?
North Plains, Oregon (NP member for life!)

About Me?
I grew up on a farm, which instilled in me a strong work ethic and sincere dedication to my community. I enjoy getting to know people’s stories and learning how others live a life different than mine. I’m also passionate about fitness. It’s truly important to me, and I’ve learned to push myself in the gym with the help of my fantastic trainer.

My true passion is boating. I own a 37-foot Maxum SCR 3700 named “Slacker,” moored in the Fremont area close to the Puget Sound. Traveling on the water is my real joy. It allows me to be free, enjoy the sea life, and provides some of the best views. This year, I was able to see a turtle swimming next to my boat. 

Why I Love Portland?
I call Portland the city with a small-town feeling. My favorite activities are hiking Forest Park, crabbing at Kelly’s Brighton Marina, and fishing from the jetty at Barview. I also love the mild climate and how dedicated people are to interacting with the environment.

How I contribute to Rent Portland Homes experience?
I’ve worked in real estate for most of my life as my parents were real estate agents and managed a few of their own rental properties where I was introduced to property management. I started managing homeowners associations as a Community Manager from 2013 to 2015 until I moved to Rent Portland Homes as the Maintenance Coordinator in 2015 through 2018. Now as the Portfolio Manager, I manage our property portfolios by ensuring our Owners are taken care of and our properties are set to the highest of standards. As the main contact for Owners, I also assist with Owner-Tenant relations as well as support all other department staff at Rent Portland Homes.

Why I love Portland?
I love how green of a city Portland is aesthetically and internally. Portland is a very conscious and progressive city which makes way for innovation and keeps things interesting. Having access to year around local, fresh beer from Portland’s breweries is a plus. I enjoy all the seasons, but when summer arrives and the sun comes out I love taking my dog Zeee out to Gabriel park.

Jared Sipe

Accounting Manager

Where I’m from?
All over, but raised mostly in Oregon.

About me?
In my free time, I’m a gamer. I enjoy tinkering and dabbling with programs and coding. I spent a while as a realtor, but realized it wasn’t the direction I wanted to go. I have two cats, but I shamelessly love one of them more than the other (just don’t tell them that). My favorite colour is blue.

How I contribute to Rent Portland Homes experience?
Details are my expertise. As the accounting manager, my experience from other property management companies comes into play by allowing me to hone & fine tune our processes. My goal is for a seamless process for everyone involved – tenants, owners, and employees. My experience as a realtor (in a past life) lends itself nicely into working within Oregon laws for best procedures and smooth sailing.

Why I love Portland?
Portland is home. I spent a lot of my teen years growing up here and have grown to love the city for all its offerings. The festivals, events, food, and atmosphere are all great. I’d much prefer it not be so cold and wet, but that’s why we have heaters, after all.

Richard Escobedo

Construction & Service Coordinator

Where I’m from?
Los Angeles ,CA

About me?
Born and raised in El Monte, this Angelino “Bleeds Blue”! These roots run deep in SoCal going back to my grandparents. My family was right in the heart of the Watts Riots, which eventually moved them East to El Monte. Fast forward to the 80’s when I came along –  I grew up like many kids  East of LA, loving The Dodgers, playing baseball, eating In and out after football games . In 2012, I moved to Beaverton, OR where my family now calls home. Like my parents, I was blessed with incredible good-looking kids that strongly carry the Escobedo gene . My son, future MLB prospects of 2030 and two Disney Princesses  for daughters, along with my beautiful wife keep me more than busy – more like head spinning!

How I contribute to Rent Portland Homes experience?
From leasing to assistant manager to property manager to maintenance tech I’ve had the pleasure of doing a little bit of it all. I take pride in calling myself a Swiss Army knife when it comes to property management. From giving tours to replacing a fridge , I’m happy to help you and provide expert service for any of your home needs.

Why I love Portland?
Portland’s metro area, busy streets and fast growth remind me a little of back home with just more clouds. As I familiarize myself with the different neighborhoods from Alberta to Woodstock, I get to experience Portland’s core motto of “Keep Portland Weird” and still continue searching for Sasquatch on hikes with the family!

Amerh Molina

Leasing Agent

Where I’m from?
Donald, Oregon on a small farm!

About me?

Born and raised between the country and the city, taking back roads and off trails, I was able to find the beauty and meaning to life everywhere. Grateful to have been born in Oregon as an American-Palestinian, I was accepted and understood growing up and felt my friendly communities wherever I went. The most important thing to me is family. I help run a family business in which we’ve had since I could walk. I believe if you care about everything you do, you will be caring for the world around you at all times. 

I grew up to constant international traveling, between Middle Eastern countries and Europe, but find now so much to explore within this great country. I plan my next adventure as I learn more on where to go next!

I’m married to my sweet Guatemalan husband and have a sweet cat named Aria found as a rescue in 2020. My free time consists of music, drawing, dance flowing, cooking, hiking, watching sunsets and coastal drives. My main priority is the health and well-being of those around me and myself to try to be the positive light in a person’s life.

My contribution is my ability to pick up just about any task and figure out a way to get it done – whether that is setting up Google Ads, designing flyers, updating our website – or helping out tenants & owners with whatever comes up. I also have a habit of nesting – the office remains stocked with coffee, necessities, and small pops of humor because of my valiant efforts!

Why I love Portland?
I love the weather! The rainy grey days of autumn with brilliant changing leaves is my favorite time of year, and I don’t even mind our “dreary winters”. There’s a huge community here for art as well, which I dabble in my spare time.

Enrique Chavez

Quality Assurance Inspector

Where I’m from?
Hillsboro, Oregon. I grew up there with my family.

About me?
In my spare time, I spend time with my family and create music. I play the guitar. Hang out with friends that I’ve made growing up in the area. I love tortillas, beans, and rice. I love spicy food and it’s my go-to! I’m not against travel, but it’s something I wouldn’t mind doing to explore North America a bit more.

How I contribute to Rent Portland Homes experience?
My days mostly consist of move-in inspections, as well as general inspections. I do a lot of tenant outreach. My goal is to make sure all our homes are ready for move-in – which means being cleaned & all repairs completed. I work with owners occasionally but mostly work with tenants to smooth the move-in process. I accurately and consistently document all my inspections and provide them to our owners for a baseline of home status at inspection times. Tenants say that I’m very communicative and personable. I work very hard to make sure homes are perfect for moves in and tenant ready.

Why I love Portland?
I love it when the weather is nice – ideally spring weather. I like the rain, too. Portland feels like a big city, but it’s not super big, and it’s not a small town by any means. This is my home and having grown up in the area, I can’t see myself not coming back to Portland time after time. Portland is always changing, so there’s always something new and exciting around the next corner.

Most of the time I’m doing Move-In inspections, I thrive on finding everything that needs to be addressed before the tenant moves in. Taking pictures of everything and documenting all my inspections will give the new tenants and owners a peace in mind. Communicating with the tenants, owners and co-workers is something I must frequently do. To make sure the property is ready for move in!
