Phelan Van Deren
Broker - Oregon
Phelan, a native of the Southwest, grew up in Albuquerque before moving to Portland with his family at the age of ten. He fell in love with the city and everything the Pacific Northwest has to offer, and currently resides in the Lents neighborhood with his wife Courtney and their cat, Teddy. Phelan has been a home appraisal assistant since early 2019 and brings a unique perspective to real estate as a result. With thousands of home visits and experience working with hundreds of agents under his belt, he has a deep understanding of the home valuation process used by appraisers. Passionate about his work and providing excellent experiences for his clients, Phelan is also an avid outdoors enthusiast who enjoys camping, backpacking, climbing, cycling, skiing, and more. In his free time, he can be found trying the many great food and coffee options Portland has to offer or catching the latest movie.
They call me: I’ve never been given a nickname that stuck, you’re welcome to try if
you’re up for the challenge.
I am: A husband, Jesus follower, outdoor enthusiast, sports fanatic, coffee snob, and
obsessed with quality in all forms and facets.
What area(s) do you work in?: Portland metro area with an emphasis on the east side
Most Memorable Challenge: I can’t think of anything at the moment.
Perfect Day: A day spent camping in the mountains with friends and family is pretty

food and drinks enjoyed around a campfire.

Preferred Super Power: Ability to control time. Way too overpowered, the possibilities
Inspiration: Besides my wife and family, I believe that everyone has something unique

youth program at the church my wife and I attend every week since I was in high school.
