Announcing Mark Graalum

Portland, OR
Mark Graalum, Broker

Cascade Sotheby’s International Realty is excited to announce that Mark Graalum has joined our team in Portland, Oregon.
Mark married his grade-school sweetheart 34 years ago and raised two beautiful daughters in Denver, Colorado. In 2003, they moved to Portland, Oregon. After a successful, albeit stressful career in IT consulting management, Mark decided it was time to do something he was passionate about. Combining his love for architecture and his desire to help people, he found the perfect marriage in real estate – but not just any real estate. As a pre-construction listing agent for some of Portland’s finest condominium developments such as the Eliot and Waterfront Pearl, he gained a great deal of experience and knowledge unique to Portland condominium construction methods, homeowner associations and collective community personalities.
As a buyer or seller, he believes it is risky to work with an agent who does not have an understanding of the complexities associated with this type of home ownership. Mark is an owner of an urban west-side condominium and has owned several condos in some of the premier developments of Gerding Edlen, John Carroll and Jack Onder. He has represented condo buyers and sellers in Portland’s Pearl District, Downtown, Nob Hill and Goose Hollow neighborhoods and understands the challenges and opportunities associated with new vs old, concrete vs wood-frame, large vs boutique.
The other half of his passion lies with inner-city, historic properties. Mark grew up in a family of contractors and has personally renovated several turn-of-the century homes. He appreciates the differences between a lipstick fix-n-flip and a historic restoration.

As a listing agent, it is my responsibility to help prepare the property for sale, then represent the seller’s interests and priorities as it relates to price, features and amenities. As a buyer’s agent, it is my privilege to match clients to the urban home and neighborhood that reflects their style, values and priorities.

Regardless of whether he is representing the buyer or the seller, Mark loves the art of the negotiation. He believes Portland has a dynamic urban core with an amazing number of unique, historic neighborhoods to choose from. We are so thrilled to have Mark as a part of our team in Portland and he can be reached at

About the community

The city of Bend is the recreation, culture, education, medical and commercial heart of Central Oregon. It is said that things come together in Bend and form perfection. The Ponderosa Pine forest transitions into the high desert. Mountains meet lakes. Retirees live next to young families. Ranchers socialize with techies. Bend has a reputation as a tourist destination, but it’s an even better place to live. It’s still small enough that you know your neighbors, but big enough to host cosmopolitan amenities. The region’s natural splendor and recreational opportunities are always obvious. Where else can one ski a world-class mountain in the morning, golf a championship course in the afternoon and go to work in between?

January’s Third Thursday with Sandy Dutko

We are excited to have artist Sandy Dutko for Lake Oswego’s Third Thursday. Sandy is a local Portland artist who enjoys painting in several mediums. Although most of her recent work is in watermedia and collage, she also likes to experiment with oils and pastels and her paintings have become more abstract in the past years. Sandy’s work varies from semi-abstract, to pure abstract, depending on her mood and subject matter. Her approach to painting is experimental and her process often begins with textured abstract starts. Each step leads to the next, allowing her imagination to take the painting in a new direction. This unpredictable approach to painting is exciting and full of surprises.

I enjoy taking risks. I believe that it leads to more interesting art and growth as an artist.

Sandy is a member of: Lake Area Artists, Watercolor Society of Oregon, Oregon Society of Artists, Painters Showcase of Portland, and Buffalo Grass Art Society. She is also one of the twenty local artists at the Art on Broadway Gallery in Beaverton. Her work is exhibited yearly at “Art Affair” Lake Area Artists Annual Show, Painters Showcase, and at the Buffalo Grass Society Annual Art Show. Sandy has also shown her work at the Oregon Society of Artists Gallery, Lake Oswego Festival of Arts,  Southminster Presbyterian Celebration of Creativity Show, Rain Dance Ranch Gallery, and at the Portland Home and Garden Show. Her paintings have been juried into the River Sea Gallery, Manley Art Center, and the Elsinore Fine Art Gallery through the Watercolor Society of Oregon. Her painting “New Territory” can be seen in the North Light published book “Incite 2 Color Passions” the Best of Mixed Media.
Please join us this Thursday, January 21st from 4-7PM at our Lake Oswego office in Lake View Village (310 N. State Street) for art, live music, wine and appetizers!

About the broker

Licensed in the state of Oregon. Ken is a long-time Bend resident and can remember when the population was about 17,000, 3rd street only had three stop lights, and Mt. Bachelor’s chairs were named after colors. A lot has changed, but all the things that made the Bend area special back then are still here today. Ken began his real estate career in 2006 and has successfully assisted hundreds of buyers and sellers in their quest to understand the market and how to turn their desires into reality. Prior to real estate, Ken spent time in banking, investments, and owned two businesses. Ken is a graduate of the University of Oregon and is an avid Duck fan. Ken enjoys all that Central Oregon has to offer; fly fishing, hiking, biking, skiing, camping, stand up paddling, hunting, rock climbing, and more; but his first love is golf. When not providing outstanding customer service to his clients, Ken can be found on the driving range, putting green, or teeing off on #1.
