Kudos to Nathaniel

We recently received this glowing review for our agent, Nathaniel. Ernest and his wife, Patti, couldn't say enough great things about him.

"My wife and I just bought our first home and could not be happier about our choice of Realtor! Nathaniel took his time walking us through the buying process and made sure we understood and were comfortable with every step along the way. He was extremely attentive to our needs and never pressured us to look at homes that did not meet our requirements or were out of our price range. More importantly, he went out of his way to meet our challenging schedules and was always available when we needed him. Nathaniel’s professionalism, attention to detail, and knowledge of the industry eased our concerns and made for a very enjoyable buying process. I would highly recommend him to anyone in the area looking to buy or sell a home!"

Wren is a Superstar!

We received a dazzling testimonial for our agent, Wren Shiffler. Her client, Kirsten, recently purchased a house and sent us this glowing review. 

“Wren was amazing. She listened, she showed up, she was always there for us. This can be a stressful and heart wrenching process and Wren was able to help us every single step of the way. She is a superstar. 

They were so efficient at helping us get done what needed to be done in order to close on time. It was a whirlwind as we bid to have it done in 22 days, but we had a superstar team!”

"Helpful, Friendly and Diligent" That's Us!

"As a first time buyer, I knew very little about all the steps involved in purchasing a home. This was compounded by the fact that I also knew very little about the city of Portland. Rachel and her team were helpful, friendly and diligent. I never felt like I had a “realtor” showing me property but people who were my family friends. Rachel negotiated a great deal on my house and educated me about each part of the buying process. I couldn’t have asked for a better or easier experience."

More Liz Please!

We recently received some glowing feedback for our agent, Liz Getty. Her client, Erin, recently purchased a home and couldn't say enough about how great Liz is!

"We were blown away. Not only do we feel like Liz was incredibly knowledgeable, we felt like she was always using all resources to look out for us. 

Her communication was so fast and constant—does she sleep? She fought for us and guided us in the best way. We came away feeling like we had a friend."

Erin's answer when asked what might have made her home buying experience even better: "Maybe more Liz."

"Denise was extremely knowledgeable about the neighborhood we wanted (she lives there), the Portland Metro market and real estate trends. She was able to accommodate our varying work schedules and get us to viewings at a moment’s notice.

As a 1st time homebuyer, Denise dealt with our relentless barrage of questions regarding the home buying process, as well as our concerns and insecurities and guided us through with confidence and care. This definitely wasn’t her first rodeo. She provided solid advice and recommendations throughout the offer/inspection/appraisal process got us a home on our 3rd offer! Absolutely incredible, considering that the Portland market is so hyper-competitive and you have some people looking for over a year and still not been able to have an offer accepted.

I would describe Denise as a kind and caring individual who takes great pride in her work. She worked aggressively in our interests and made sure that we were taken care of throughout our entire journey into home ownership.

I would not hesitate to recommend Denise and her team, and will definitely be engaging her services again should we ever come to sell our new home!

Thanks so much Denise!"
