Who We Are

Our business is built on over 27 years of working by referral only. In short, we don’t believe our relationship ends when we close the deal. Instead, your purchase, sale, or referral is only the beginning of a rewarding relationship for you and for the team. Our goal is to have you feeling so well cared-for before, during, and after the real estate transaction that you think of us and trust your friends, family, and coworkers to us without hesitation.

The Difference at KamaHomes

Our core values are an essential part of who we are and how we conduct business.

  1. Your home, property, and goals are our TOP priority.
  2. We are honored to be your trusted advisor and we want each member of the team to be an asset for you and your real estate.
  3. We help you achieve your goals in real estate: We serve you, we coach you, we guide you.
Every home has story and so does our team. We’d love to share it with you.
Kama Dersham

Real Estate Coach

Principal Broker | Licensed in Oregon

Kama was raised by wolves in Missouri and worked as a cocktail waitress, art thief, and hot-tar roofer before falling in love with real estate. This experience has served her well over her 30-year history of owning rentals and restoring homes: Almost any project can benefit from a good cocktail, a roof patch, and a strategic piece of art. Kama lives with her husband, Ian, on her “weekend” ranch (so far, the weekend has stretched over two decades), where the horses, mules, and Great Dane keep her firmly grounded in reality. (Note to self: Never “invest” in something that eats while you are sleeping.) She loves helping people reach for their dreams.

Kama will help you set and achieve your real estate goals. She’s adept at negotiations, highly connected in her community, and an expert in positioning homes in the market to win.

Mathew Wray

Buyer’s Agent

Broker | Licensed in Oregon

Mathew is our token Portland native-hailing from the distant northlands of St. John’s. He traveled the world as a young man courtesy of the US Government, drove ambulances in South Los Angeles, SCUBA dove with seals, sea lions, and whales in the Puget Sound, and went on epic road trips with his dad all over the NW. You might’ve seen him directing traffic in an apron as a New Seasons Market Store Manager or organizing chaos in a Hawaiian shirt as a manager at Trader Joe’s. Mathew brings a unique point of view as a former client of Kama’s (he’s been investing with her for 10 years) so he knows how to keep the real in real estate. He lives in Tualatin with his wonderful scientist wife, four kids, three dogs (33% are hairless), two cats (50% of them are hairless), and two turtles (technically, 100% hairless)!

Licensed since 2012 (first as a property manager, then as a broker) Mathew will help create an experience when purchasing or selling your home that you will want to repeat and refer.

Susan Brookshire

Married to a great husband, with two wonderful sons and a husky named Max, she loves the outdoors, hiking, camping, quilting, sewing, and reading (recommend a book to her!). Susan has worked in the escrow field for over 18 years and loves working with KamaHomes because of the great clients, the great team, and the thrill of being able to make “Livin’ the Dream” come true for those around us.
