Joining Keller Williams Realty Professionals as a broker is a natural progression and culmination of my education, experience, passion and purpose in real estate, architecture, and the built environment. I look forward to the opportunity to partner with you along the transformational journey of buying, selling and investing in real estate – how can I help you? – Luke Arehart | Real Estate Broker licensed in Oregon | LukeArehart@KW.com cell: 503-967-5853
Community and a sense of ‘place’ are dearly important to me. I work to build relationships through creative networking, mentorship and youth education with my volunteer efforts with the Architects in Schools program and service as an active board member for Marathon Scholars, a group focused on “bringing together caring adults and talented, under-resourced children to make the dream of a college degree a reality.”

Other favorite books: “Big Sur” Jack Kerouac (1962) “The Devil in the White City: Murder, Magic, and Madness at the Fair that Changed America” by Erik Larson (2003) “The Sun Also Rises” by Ernest Hemingway (1926)
“The most effective way to do it is to do it.” ― Amelia Earhart
I’ve spent the first part of my career working in the architectural industry including experience with the design and construction of custom residential homes and remodels. I earned my Bachelor of Architecture and English degrees from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo and have worked with a handful of architectural offices including Maginniss + del Ninno Architects in Washington DC, Griffin Enright Architects in Los Angeles, CA and most recently, COLAB Architecture + Urban Design in Portland, OR serving as Business Development Director. I’m a contributing editor/writer for PortlandArchitecture.com with guest posts featured on Medium, Young Architect and Architizer. I’ve also been honored to be invited as a frequent architecture/art critic for college students from University of Oregon and Portland State University.
