Mickey Lindsay has lived in the Portland Metro Area all her life except for the four years when she studied in Eugene at the University of Oregon. She is the second generation owner of Oregon First, Realtors® & Washington First Properties. Mickey has been in and around the real estate business all her life, working for the company during her summers as a student, and full time after college until she became a managing broker almost two decades ago.
For her, the best thing about real estate is that “everyone lives someplace,” so she connects with lots of different people in the course of her job. She also loves to see agents’ careers take off, and watch them grow more knowledgable and confident.
Mickey is an avid reader and likes to travel when she can find the time, even if it’s just to the beautiful Oregon Coast. Her most memorable trip was to Paris in 1995 when her husband proposed to her at the top of the Eiffel Tower!
In addition to being the Owner and President of Oregon First, Realtors® & Washington First Properties, Mickey is the Managing Broker of Washington First Properties and the three Westside branches of Oregon First, Realtors®. She is also the 2020 chair of the Portland Metropolitan Association of Realtors® Brokerage Risk Management Committee, and is on the Board of Directors for the Regional Multiple Listing Service for 2021.
Donna Hanlon has been living in the Gresham and Sandy areas of Oregon for most of her life, with the exception of a few years spent in Eugene selling medical supplies. She has worked for Oregon First, Realtors® for about 15 years. She loves real estate because she enjoys helping people whether they are clients or other agents. She strives to make sure that she is available to help brokers with questions and situations that arise in the business whenever they need answers.
Outside of work, she bakes and fishes as well as plays tennis, but enjoys all sports. Her agents have all benefited from her love of baking because there’s no way she and her husband can eat everything she creates!

She enjoys her job with real estate knowing that she can be a small part in the process of making so many families’ dreams come true, since moving or purchasing a home is exciting with many possibilities. She finds the excitement in their voices and faces heartwarming at the end of a transaction. If she is able to free up an agent’s time so that they can spend it on themselves, she knows that she has done her job well. She enjoys helping people, and her goal is simple: if the agents she assists are happy, then her goal has been met.
She has three children who keep her busy outside of work. They are a big sports family that keeps them constantly on the go and they love to travel.

Tanisha is the Director of Agent and Transaction Support for Oregon First, Realtors®.
"Tanisha has literally saved my sanity since I began using her transaction coordinating services. As a single mom, I have so little time and need to be in many places all at once. At one point I was under contract with 9 transactions, I would’ve never been able to pull this off without Tanisha’s help. Now whenever I get a new listing or go under contract with a sale, I send the contract to Tanisha and ask for her help. She takes care of getting documents signed from my clients and inputs info for SkySlope and RMLS. She has been so professional with all of my clients, and they have enjoyed her communication. She is always on top of it, and has helped me out so tremendously I can’t even thank her enough. The cost is minimal compared to my time and sanity :)" - Mable Bartlett
“Tanisha! More valuable than gold! Trustworthy. Dependable. Thorough. Fast. Intelligent. Detail oriented, plus a sense of humor! I feel so grateful for her on a daily basis. I really haven't found a better transaction Coordinator than Tanisha. I know when I ask her to do something it is done. I highly recommend her and am thankful I have her on my team!” - Rachel Sheller
