Fiona Parsons resides in Newport, located on the beautiful Oregon Coast, and Portland,Oregon where she spent most of her adult life after she moved from Brighton, England, as a young child. A few years after graduating from high school, she and her then-boyfriend built their first house with their own four hands. She married that boyfriend, and they went on to have four children. She was fortunate enough to be able to stay home and achieve her number one goal in life: to raise her children to be happy, healthy adults who give to society rather than take from it.
While her firstborn was still an infant, she started a business from home, Deni Jaise Fitness Wear. She designed, manufactured, and marketed her products which were sold at Nordstrom, Body Gear, as well as other outlets.
Fiona’s career in real estate started with RE/MAX Equity Group in Beaverton, Oregon. She ranked within the top 10% of her office in her first year and was awarded membership in the 100% Club, a select group of high-producing Sales Associates. Inclusion is based on commission earned in a single year and is a rare achievement for an Associate in her first year of sales.
