LEXIE FRANKLIN

What did you do before SZBRE?

Real estate has always been something I have been interested in. Before Sean Z Becker Real Estate I was a loan processor for a private lending firm which showed me how much I wanted to be out and about meeting and talking with clients and learning more about selling real estate.

Where were you born?

I am a Portland native, born and raised and very proud of that! I have also lived in many of the surrounding suburb cities so I know the Portland Metro area very well and love it!

What is your happiest memory?

I have been riding horses competitively since I was 10 years old. It has taken me to shows all over the Northwest. As a result of competing in all these competitions, in 2012 my horse Oden and I won World Champion Hunter Rider in the Northwest Region.

What tv show/movie are you ashamed to admit you love?

The Bachelor/Bachelorette

Fun Fact?

I was also on the Equestrian team while attending the University of Oregon and I have had my horse Oden for 10 years. He is happily living his retired days in Eugene. Sko Ducks!

Favorite Portland neighborhood?

As a Portland native, its hard to choose. My current neighborhood is the Pearl District, specifically the Brewery Blocks. I’ve lived there for a combined 7 years, and I love having some of the city’s best beer restaurants right outside my door.

Best place you’ve ever been?

Portland of course! But, Vietnam is a very close second. The people, the food, the constant buzz of scooters and commotion… I can’t get enough, and I can’t wait to go back.

Greatest accomplishment?

I practically grew up on a bike with my Dad. My first memory is riding in the back of a Burley trailer, and till this day we go on week-long cycling trips together. As a result, I have camped in over 80 different towns in Oregon, and ridden through many more. Having experienced all of Oregon, including the places far off the beaten path, is something that I am very proud of. We are truly fortunate to live in such a beautiful state.

How would your friends describe you?

Always laughing.

One thing most people don’t know about you?

I own a horse, and competively horseback ride. It’s my absolute favorite thing to do.

Where can we find you when you are not working?

You can find me kitesurfing, cycling, wine tasting, or spending the day with my wife and young son hiking in the Columbia River Gorge.

 

What most excites you about your work and the contribution you make?

I enjoy getting to know people and developing friendships with our clients and community.  It has been incredible to watch how our “work” has transcended into personal friendships and a deeper meaning to our clients and community than just selling homes…I find what we do everyday to be very rewarding!

 

Favorite Food and Beverage?

I love any type of Mexican food!  I also happen to love Oregon wines….

 

Favorite Place to Travel To?

Hood River, Baja, and anywhere outside of the U.S.  My family and I love to see the world!

 

Why Real Estate?

I’m passionate about working with people and I love all the wonderful homes and neighborhoods of Portland.
