Why Rise Above Realty?
We consider every client’s individual needs before finalizing a property sale. It is your wants and wishes that matter most, not our own.
I hired Ann to sell my home & business. We had multiple offers and it was a fairly complicated situation. She handled it very professionally. I’ve referred her to multiple people with great success. She was very creative in problem solving and was respectful of everyone’s time.
And Samuelson worked so hard and quickly for us! We started looking at homes in May and were in a new one, keys in hand, by mid July! Ann worked diligently to not only find us our home but to make sure we knew both the high points and low points of each house we looked at. She doesn’t want to just sell houses, she really cared about finding us a home and listened to what our priorities were. She always answered our calls to her or promptly called us back. She helped through the whole process and took the time to explain the steps. Our first housewarming gift was from her, a basket of goodies and a sign that we promptly displayed in our walkway, “Some people call this chaos, we call it family.” Highly recommend her and would use her again.
As first time home buyers we were completely lost on the process and how it worked. Rene was amazingly patient, took us to all different kinds of places all over the county looking for one that would work in our tight budget and with our FHA loan. She is very knowledgeable regarding the area, and even had a contact who could help us with our financing.
She got us a great deal on a beautiful house and was able to negotiate all the conditions for us without a problem. I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell in the clatsop county area.

When you’re buying or selling a house, Kasha Lackey believes that you need someone who will give you their utmost attention and deliver results. That’s why she strives to provide that level of service for each and every client she represents. “My goal is to treat my clients exactly how I would want to be treated. Buying or selling a home is a big decision, whether it’s your first time or whether you’re a real estate veteran.”
Kasha graduated from a technical design program for Computer Aided Drafting with a focus on architectural engineering. With her love for and interest in home design she can help you find or sell that beautiful gem or diamond in the rough.
She is a fourth-generation Astorian, and is now raising her own family in Clatsop County. Being a mother she is excited to raise her kids in such an amazing area that is surrounded with beauty and backed by such a wonderful community of caring, hard working people.
One of her favorite things about living on the Oregon Coast is that it allows her to fulfill her love for the outdoors. Whether she is going to the beach to dig clams, enjoying a gorgeous Oregon Coast sunset with her family, or taking a hike in the woods looking for wildlife she knows and enjoys all this area has to offer.
My partner and I decided to buy our first home mid 2022. We had an idea of what we were looking for but didn’t have an agent. Fortunately after viewing our first home we were connected with Kasha. She was absolutely wonderful. She never showed us a house out of our price range and never steered us in the wrong direction. Any questions we asked were promptly answered. After 6 or so months of looking we finally found the home we wanted. Kasha was there every step of the way to make sure we got the best deal possible. She was diligent throughout the negotiation process and never settled. She even helped us pick a great lender that helped us nail down our monthly payment. I would recommend Kasha to anyone looking for an honest, hardworking, selfless real estate agent. We appreciate everything she did for us.
Kasha is salt of the earth and always keeps things real with you. She has your best interest and the particulars of your situation in mind through the entire home buying and selling process. We’re about to have a baby and she made sure to do everything in her power to get us into our home just in time. We knew we were in good hands from the start and I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. I will be recommending her to all my friends and family.
Kasha was fabulous from the go! I emailed a random agent to see a house where I didn’t have an agent to see one house. She got right away and had already done the research to answer the questions from my email i.e zoning, permits for work done, possibilities or plans for the vacant lots across the street. She is from Astoria for 4 generations and is able to coordinate to get everything done in a timely manor. She is timely and attentive, professional and friendly, knowledgeable and efficient making my transaction smooth and with out a hiccup closing in 30 days. She truly made this deal happen with her savvy negotiation skills!
