Rick Brainard

As team owner and Managing Principal Broker, Rick brings a high level of transactional experience to the team. Rick is a Portland Metropolitan Association of Realtors Double Diamond Recipient – an award saved for only the highest producing agents. Rick has seen the ins-and-outs of countless transactions and his experience has prepared him to best serve you.

A native Oregonian, Rick was born in Eugene and later attended college at the University of Portland, Oregon State and George Fox. Once a Division One college basketball player, Rick went on to play professionally overseas prior to returning to the states to attend graduate school and become a Public-School Vice Principal.

Even prior to real estate, Rick was fascinated with the industry and was known to binge watch HGTV and frequently drag his wife to open houses, “just for fun.” So, after a decade in education, Rick embraced his passion for real estate, became a broker and joined the Laue Team. In 2017 Rick moved into team ownership, continuing to build on the Laue Team’s 30+ years of real estate service and excellence.

When he is not out showing properties or helping clients navigate the sale of their home, Rick most enjoys spending time with his two boys, Mason and Luke, and his wife of 30 years, Kiesha. He is an unashamed car fanatic and enjoys rare moments out on the golf course.
