Kiesha Brainard

Serving as the team’s Operations Director, Kiesha oversees much of the ‘behind-the-scenes’ details for the Laue Team. Responsible for finances, client relations and team support, Kiesha also serves as the team’s staging authority and partners with agents to advise home owners how to best prepare their home for sale.

Born in Eugene, Kiesha met her husband and now business partner, Rick Brainard, at the age of 15. The two went on to attend college together at the University of Portland before moving to Australia, where Rick played professional basketball. Upon their return to the states, Kiesha obtained her Master’s Degree from Oregon State and went on to teach high school science for 8 years before their first son was born. The couples’ two boys are now ages 12 and 14, and Rick and Kiesha have enjoyed 28 years of marriage.

After homeschooling her boys for their first years, Kiesha became an active member of the Laue Team in 2017 when she and Rick stepped into ownership and their boys began attending school. Kiesha’s favorite part of real estate is developing connections with the team’s clients and she feels genuinely honored to have been welcomed into so many lives and so many homes over the past years.
