Kari Montoya

My excitement for home building started in a very modern way - binge watching HGTV shows. I graduated from Portland State University in the Spring of 2018, and was honored to start my post-grad career with Adair Homes shortly after. It's a privilege to be a part of a team that cares endlessly about our customers, and helping them achieve their dream home goals. Outside of work, you can find me golfing, camping, reading, or spending time with friends and family.
