Caryl Bentley Brown

Vice President


Career Summary

Caryl has been active closting real estate transactions in Portland’s urban core and central city neighborhoods for over 20 years. She has represented the Pearl District’s premier landlords and developers, negotiating transactions for both retail and creative office space, including new-build high rise, mixed use projects and historic and/or adaptive reuse projects.

Caryl has a practical understanding of how to serve her clients with their real estate requirements. She maintains the loyalty and trust of key clients by consistently producing results with a high level of service and professionalism. She exceeded sales and lease objectives for a number of high profile mixed use projects worth over $300 million in the CDB and Pearl. These transactions included first to market stores for glassybaby, C.C. Filson, Crossroads Trading Company, Umpqua Bank, Blue Star Donuts and creative office leases for now well-known start-ups: Survey Monkey, B-Glowing and Call Ruby.

Current projects include reconfiguring and re-tenanting the iconic Schofield Block, downtown Vancouver, USA. This multi-building parcel includes Clark County’s oldest commercial building. The transformation from a single tenant building to multi-tenants has been successful with the openings of Nonavo Pizza, Little Conejo, Simply Sweets, Beerded Brothers Brewery and Veritas Guitars. Construction is ongoing to completely activate the block 360 degrees with new storefronts over the coming years.
