I grew up in Astoria, OR. After graduating from Astoria High in 1962, I attended Clatsop College for 2 years and then 1 year each at the University of Oregon and Portland State University where I received my salesman's license in 1967 and went to work for my father. In the fall 1967 I moved to the big city (Portland) and started work for Bucher Realty, whose offices were located in the exact spot where Jim McNeeley Real Estate and Property Management, Inc. now stands.
During my time with Bucher Realty I was promoted to Branch Manager and was then hired by Pete Wilson Realty as their Residential Sales Manager. In the early 70's I started out on my own by opening Jim McNeeley Real Estate and Property Management, Inc. in the Beaverton Mall, and soon thereafter opened a branch office in Milwaukie as well. When the real estate market crashed in the early 80's and almost bankrupted every real estate company, I was fortunate enough to be hired on by the Veteran's Administration as their Property Manager. They only paid $5 a month per house, but over the years,I managed and sold nearly 1000 VA repos. As things got better in the late 80's, I moved to the Cedar Hills Shopping Center for a few years.
Jim McNeeley Real Estate and Property Management, Inc. is now located in the spot where Bucher Realty was formerly located in Cedar Hills. Fortunately there will be no more relocating because I was recently able to purchase the building and we plan on staying here forever. I opened our property management department in the late 80's with only one other real estate agent and a few houses. We have now grown to have a property management staff of 17 and we manage about 1000 residential and commercial properties all over NW Oregon. On the sales end of things, at last count, we have sold houses in over 70 different cities in Oregon. Jim McNeeley Real Estate & Property Management Inc. is a member of 3 multiple listing services which include; Portland RMLS, Oregon Coast MLS and Willamette Valley MLS. I feel very fortunate to have been able to maintain a successful business throughout the years and look forward to many more to come. When not selling or managing real estate, I enjoy golfing at the Astoria Country Club, and fishing and clam digging on the Oregon Coast where my family has a vacation home on Cullaby Lake.

Jessica has lived in the Portland Metro all of her life and loves calling Oregon home. She has known the McNeeley family for over 20 years; she had her first property management experience working for Jim McNeeley Real Estate during high school. She attended the University of Oregon and Portland State University to pursue a degree in business. Having a mother in real estate for 23+years made transitioning into real estate a natural progression for her. When the time came for Jessica to make a move to another real estate company it seemed right to return back to her real estate roots with the McNeeley Real Estate Family. Jessica takes pride in ensuring that both her owners and tenants have a great experience when working with her. Jessica is not a "slum lord" property manager and she strives to make sure the rental homes she manages are cared for just as the owner would. Home selling and buying services are also in her portfolio of expertise. She feels offering both is a great resource for owners who are looking to purchase more investment homes or sell their current rental. Jessica knows that creating a great experience for her owners ensures that the same excellence and care taken with the rental experience will be carried over to their selling or buying experience as well.
Jessica and her husband Gene have welcomed 2 new babies in the last two years. Eva was born May 2012 and Kaden their son was born August 2013. Jessica also has two stepchildren Gene and Kyli who are wonderful siblings to their new brother and sister.

Bio Coming Soon
Sarah spent her first 18 years growing up in the coastal town of Santa Barbara, CA.

Prior to moving to Oregon from my hometown of San Diego, California, I was employed as Administrative Assistant at a commercial/industrial real estate firm in the San Diego area.
I moved to Oregon in 1979 and continued my career as Administrative Assistant at Pete Anderson Realty in Seaside for 13 years. Pete also owned the local garbage company. When he sold the real estate firm he asked me to transfer to the garbage company as office manager. He eventually sold the business to Recology Western Oregon where I continued working as their Commercial Account and Recycling Education Specialist for the coast operations until I retired in 2016.
I met my husband Fred in 1984 and we married in 1990. Fred and I have been blessed with eight grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. We are also thankful for our rescue kitty, Phoebe, who is now 14 years old. I love spending vacation time in Palm Springs with Fred, and in San Diego with my Sister, Mom, and other family. I enjoy golf, walking/hiking, and traveling.
Stevie was born and raised in San Diego, California. In 2022 she wanted a change in scenery and decided to move to the PNW. She was raised in a household that educated about the housing marking and all its quirks. To help prepare her for this industry, she studied at California State University San Marcos and earned her undergraduate in Business Marketing. In her free time she likes to read, work on DIY projects, and create art. Stevie started with JMRE in July 2022.
Shanae was born and raised in Upland, CA and moved to Portland in 2018. Moving to the PNW has always been a goal of hers even though her heart will always miss Disneyland. She absolutely loves the moody weather and colorful Autumns that Oregon has to offer. Shanae enjoys hiking, going to the pumpkin patch every year, and playing with her two chihuahua pups. She joined Hayes team in January 2022.
I am a native of Oregon, growing up on the Oregon Coast outside of Astoria (Goonies never say die!). After I graduated high school, I kind of ran around the country for a while doing Accounts Payable with different jobs. When I moved back to Portland in 2005, I got a job in Commercial Property Management and it took off from there. I really enjoyed the property management field and I had a knack for it. I moved from Accounts Payable to Accounts Receivable, Bookkeeping and eventually became an accountant. After my mother passed away in August of 2017 I decided to take a break from the working world and spend some time with my daughter that will be starting High School in 2022. In January 2021 I decided to jump back into the work force and started working for Jim McNeeley Real Estate & Property Management as an assistant bookkeeper which is more of the accounting I actually enjoy doing. This is my first time working in residential and it definitely stays busy and moves fasts but I really enjoy it. In my free time, I like playing video games, playing pool, camping, swimming, and going out dancing.
