For Rachel Bernhardt, real estate is all about the clients. She loves providing exceptional customer service and helping clients find the home of their dreams. With extensive experience in going above and beyond for clients, she is passionate about bringing that care and high level of service to her career in real estate. She is relatively new in the industry, but her upbeat optimism and tenacity has already been serving her well.

Rachel grew up in the West Hills of Portland and knows the city well. She stayed in Oregon for college, attending the University of Oregon in Eugene (Go Ducks!). Throughout high school and breaks in college she worked as a sales-person at Nordstrom, achieving top sales while forming tight bonds and relationships with her colleagues and clients. She continued there for a year after graduating from college, and then changed gears to take advantage of her degree in marketing. She began work at a financial management firm doing marketing and event planning, and loved the new challenges that the job brought. However, she realized that her ideal career involved more direct client interaction, which brought her to Cooper Realty!

Besides real estate, one of her greatest passions is travel. She spent a year during college living in Copenhagen, Denmark, and took advantage of her location to travel extensively through Europe. In November 2014 she toured South East Asia and fell in love with the culture, food and lifestyle. When she can’t go too far from home she loves to explore the beauty of the Pacific Northwest with friends and family.
