Specializing in West Side Real Estate Properties, including Lake Oswego, Beaverton, Hillsboro, Tigard
As a John L. Scott broker, I'm devoted to concierge-level service and client satisfaction. That means I work tirelessly to make your home buying or selling process as efficient, stress-free and lucrative for you as possible.
Genie Shook started in real estate in her early adult life and never looked back! She started her career in sales of New Home Construction, which makes her Knowledgeable at Resale and New Homes. Genie is currently based out of the John L. Scott Lake Oswego office and specializes in real estate properties on the southwest side of Portland, including Lake Oswego, Beaverton, Hillsboro and Tigard.
In addition to Genie’s expertise with Sales in New Construction and Resale , she is consistently updating her real estate knowledge when it comes to changes in the industry and new trends. Her aim when serving clients is to be fair, honest and always present as a good listener. Genie’s dedication means she is available when clients need her, be it days, nights or weekends.
When it comes to the types of clients Genie works with, she calls herself a “chameleon,” as she truly works across the board. She does luxury homes, but also works with first-time buyers and move-up clients. She wants to help people of all types find their dream home, as everyone has a different dream.
To give back to her local community, Genie volunteers at the Washington County District Attorney’s office. She began volunteering there in 2011, and appreciates the knowledge she has gained regarding the legal system through volunteering weekly. She volunteers on the criminal side, so her work supports victims of a crime.
Genie’s top hobby is fitness — And continues to try to be the Best she can be. She also enjoys spending time with family, and caring for her koi pond. Her passion for koi fish started years ago when one of her clients had koi, and now Genie has a 3,500-gallon pond in her backyard that holds 64 koi fish! When Genie is seeking a moment of peace and serenity, she will sit by her waterfall and enjoy what nature has to offer.
It’s true that Portland has a lot of nicknames: The Rose City. Stumptown. Beervana. River City. Bridgetown. PDX. I think it shows the affection Portlanders have for our city. Portland is in one of the most beautiful spots in the country. We enjoy tons of your round outdoor activities. The Cascade Mountains with their year-round skiing and snowboarding are an hour to the east and the Pacific Ocean is an hour to the west. Willamette Valley Wine Country, which is known for its world class pinot noirs, is a short drive away. But there are plenty of reasons to stay in the city too. Powell's City of Books is an entire city block of literary fare. Forest Park and Mount Tabor are both perfect for a hike or a picnic and you can’t beat the shopping and dining in the Pearl District or the art scene on Alberta and Mississippi Avenues. Our mild climate--with warm dry summers and cool wet winter--has given rise to the farm to table movement in local restaurants. Salmon, pork, and beef all come from local purveyors and they pair with locally grown produce and international flavors to make Portland a foodie's dream city. Portland has one of the lowest crime rates of major American cities and the cost of living is low compared to other West Coast cities. Homes range from historic mansions in the West Hills and restored bungalows in inner Southeast to highrise condos in the Pearl and downtown and new construction and other up and coming neighborhoods. If you’d like to learn more about Portland let us know. We’d love to show you around and help you find your perfect home.
“My husband and I recently bought our first home. We worked with Genie Shook throughout the process. Her knowledge, guidance and genuine thoughtfulness made our experience a wonderful one. Genie helped us from step one and followed through until we were 100% satisfied with our decision. It was great to work with someone who can be counted on and trusted. Having Genie as our realtor was a fantastic experience and we will call her again when we are looking for our next home.”

“Genie is the consummate professional. I have the honor of having her as my listing agent. I was transferred out of state and have had to turn over the full process of listing, watching out for, and caring for my house while I have been away. She has been excellent. She checks on the residence regularly, coordinates any maintenance that has been needed, and has stayed in constant communication with me. In times when you need an excellent professional for your real estate needs, there is no one, not one other agent, that is better than Genie! She works extra hard for you and keeps you well informed. I am happy to give her my full endorsement when buying or selling property.”
