|Tom Secolo, one of Portland, Oregon's top realtors, has been in the real estate business since 1992. He has closed more than 1300 career transactions, and currently manages a handpicked team of professionals as founder of Lighthouse Properties, NW.
A second-generation realtor, Tom had always planned on being in residential sales. He started his career in real estate by seeking out buildable land around tech firms such as Intel, Fujitsu and Hewlett Packard, selling it to builders, and getting the list backs. Tom attributes 50 to 60 percent of his total business to this practice, and continues to seek out buildable land.
