Eric Guess – Acquisitions Manager

Eric is happiest when he’s solving problems! Whether it’s a question about a lease, setting up a home theater system, or even network connectivity issues, he is the go-to guy. After attending UC Davis, Eric worked in commercial property management across the San Francisco Bay Area before moving to Portland to get more sunshine.

Eric’s interests have truly taken him to the edges of the world, including spending 6 months in Antarctica! In his spare time, he likes to listen to music, work on old cars, visit the newest craft brewery in town, and enjoy a cup of black coffee with a book on the patio.

Andrew brings to Rarebird a commitment to teamwork and collective success making sure all our residents feel at home.

In his free time, Andrew likes to homebrew, cycle, rock climb, and hike. A Timbers fan, he tries to get to as many games as he can!
