"LJ IS THE BEST"
JANETT BURLEY MOLALLLA (Buyer) Sat, 11 Sep 2021 12:28:31 +1000
"Chip is semi-retired, so he graciously agreed to take our listing. The interest in our property was quick and furious, but Chip kept up with the brisk schedule well. He canceled a vacation to service our listing, which was very appreciated. He kept us in the loop daily, and reviewed nine offers to present. We thank him for his diligence, as we accepted an offer that was over and above our expectations. Thanks Chip!"

Jeffrey Hjelterecommended by Buyer view agent's profile
"I couldn't more highly recommend Jeff Hjelte. He was knowledgeable about the area, the home buying process from beginning to end, professional and friendly, not to mention patient. He went above and beyond to address my questions/concerns and anticipated what might be important for our family based on getting to know us over time. He helped our family find our perfect home while navigating the competitive field with confidence. I'd recommend Jeff to anyone looking for a trustworthy and reliable resource for residential real estate."

"Iraida was a valuable friend, resource, and support system throughout the home buying process. She demonstrated great insight and expertise around current, local market conditions and offered good advice on how to competitively position offers.
Iraida was prompt, attentive, supportive, and detailed throughout every stage of the buying process. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to others.
Iraida is a consummate professional and is totally in tune with all of the practical aspects of the home buying process. But she also has an affinity and understanding of the often overwhelming emotional aspects of making a significant home purchase decision. She really demonstrated those softer, supportive skills that were so important to me as a single buyer.
Fantastic experience with Cheryl. She helped me find a support network of home-related services :-)
Overall, a truly positive and supportive experience. Iraida worked behind the scenes to make this process as smooth as possible and her network of connections and relationships helped make the buying process as seamless and efficient as possible. Iraida was able to secure for me what had originally seemed impossible: she helped me get into a beautiful house in a great neighborhood in record time - a remarkable feat given the challenging market conditions!"

"Michael Lukman had no flaws. His sale plan worked perfectly. I believe I got the most I could for the house, and I don't believe it could have closed any sooner. This was an estate sale, and I live thousands of miles away, but the preparation and process couldn't have been any easier if I had been living next door. He provided excellent references for several repairs and cleaning, and it all went perfectly. If I ever buy or sell a house again in Oregon or Washington, I will be calling Michael Lukman."
Cliff Carlin, Bakersville, NC (Seller) Sat, 03 Jul 2021 06:32:11 +1000
"We needed someone who understood the complexities of dealing with an estate sale and Nathan far surpassed that expectation.
Nathan was always a phone call away and kept in touch with us on a weekly basis throughout the whole process.
Nathan made a very hard sale experience much easier with his knowledge, tenacity and understanding.
Nathan was given an almost insurmountable task in selling a property that needed a lot of work but he definitely stuck with it through many ups and downs and got the job done!
I would definitely recommend Nathan to all my friends and family and will use him in the future for all my real estate needs."

"Malcolm was my second realtor. I fired my first realtor due to unrelenting pressure to buy every house we looked at, it seemed as if every house was the right house for me. After taking a break, I was directed to Malcolm by three different friends who he had helped purchase houses. The contrast between bad and excellent was palpable. He is fundamentally different than other realtors - Malcolm actually understands what it means to be a fiduciary. He consistently put my interests above his own. There was only patience and learned advice as we navigated a months long search for my first home. He helped me find the right house for me, and made sure I was comfortable throughout the process. You could tell his goal was doing good business, with an eye on future referrals due to the quality of his service - never a short sighted focus on hurriedly closing a deal. I'd hire him again in a heartbeat. He was incredibly responsive, consistently delivering candid and correct advice. He gets it."
JW, Portland (Buyer) Wed, 30 Jun 2021 05:54:16 +1000
"Jolynne was super responsive and quickly "got" us and what we were looking for. She listened to our wants in a home and was able to quickly knock some houses we had seen on listing sites off our list based on what we said we desired. As we were first-time home buyers (from out-of-state, at that!), she walked us through all the steps and answered our questions patiently and knowledgeably. Jolynne was great to work with and we would certainly hire her again for future home purchases---though that might not happen as she helped us find the perfect home that we intend to stay in for a long time!"
Jean C, Bridlemile (Buyer) Sat, 19 Jun 2021 13:39:16 +1000
"Iraida is an absolutely fantastic broker. She is truly a professional and takes the time to understand your goals and needs before putting those into action. Her negotiation skills are second to none. She goes out of her way to make the process as smooth and transparent as possible, answering any questions we had. I would recommend her to anyone looking to by or sell in the metro area!"
Adam, Portland, Oregon (Seller) Wed, 16 Jun 2021 04:53:13 +1000
"Jeff came highly recommended from my wife's mother and he helped us buy a condo for family. From day one he was the most professional broker I've ever worked with. Reeling from my bad experience with the former broker that helped me buy the house that Jeff eventually sold I was extremely pleased to have worked with Jeff. Going back to Jeff for selling my home was a no brainer to me.
I originally approached Jeff this time to help with buying a new construction town house to downsize. Originally worried about taking a loss selling my home but we had the COVID housing winds behind our backs. This was months in advanced and we knew the market was warm at the end of 2020 but didn't expect what would happen in the Spring of 2021.
The experience of selling a home in this hot market was tiring with so many people visiting our house but it was worthwhile in the end. Jeff kept in contact throughout the entire process and kept us up to date on number of people coming to our house that day and the offers as they were rolling in. At the end of the week we had double digit offers and Jeff helped us filter through all of them to pick the one that stood out the most.
Post offer selection was a breeze with a simple inspection day and other inspections to help complete our very short closing period. Market conditions aside Jeff was there whenever we needed him. If I plan on selling my new construction in a few years I would not hesitate to contact him again."

"Lori listens to you and takes your vision to heart. She works proactively to give you the best opportunity to see homes and to make a bid in a timely and strategic way. She's knowledgeable and professional. If there's something she doesn't know, she gets right on the issue, doing research and contacting other experts. We found Lori very easy to work with and very approachable. She's excellent at communication, and kept us well informed on new homes and timelines, strategies, etc. We can't say enough good things about Lori and her invaluable help to us in finding and buying a home. Anyone would be very fortunate to have Lori on their team."

"We were specifically told by the sellers that Michael was one of the reasons we got the house. He was a great communicator and was on top of the details every step of the way. He was knowledgeable about the area and provided a lot of wisdom throughout our search and purchase. He was patient as we learned about everything involved in purchasing a home.
Michael was a joy to be around and made the whole process as comfortable as it could have been. Michael prepared us for each step of the process. He was honest yet encouraging about the current housing market. I highly recommend Michael Beirwagen."

"We met with Iraida when our family was needing more space than the adorable first home she helped us buy four years earlier. She helped us make a plan, but a meeting home, and sell that first home. Iraida’s frequent, clear, and supportive communication was key to selling our first home for a price that we were very happy with. She focused our efforts in getting the home ready to put on the market and made sure everything was taken care of all the way through closing."

He has excellent communication skills and was always touching base to let us know how things were going and kept us in the loop on all showings, inspections and buyer broker communication.
Nathan is very pleasant and trustworthy and I wouldn't hesitate using him again in the future and recommending him to my family and friends."

"From Doug & Ruth -
Lori is the best broker we have ever been privileged to work with. Of the 9 homes we have bought and sold over the last 45 years she represented to us the most knowledge, experience and loyalty that we have ever had. In the up and down years of buying and selling, we were impressed with the confidence we gained in using Lori as our broker. She honored our desires, needs and beliefs and was still able to instill sound reasoning within us as she developed an excellent plan of action on how to price, market and sell our home.
Lori gave us creative ideas on how to stage our home that really worked. One of the most important things was her ability to adjust when we decided to sell our home a month earlier than expected because of the current housing market. She moved quickly to alter the game plan ending up in an - successful sale. It is because of her hard work in searching for a new home for us that we are able to buy the home we are now going to move into. It was amazing to watch Lori help in coordinating a purchase agreement of our new home only 5 days after we closed on the sale of our old home.
It always felt like Lori was working only for us even though we knew she had many other important clients. When Lori did not know the answers we needed to issues or questions surrounding the buying and selling of homes she had numerous, excellent contacts. We have used some of them and they were all wonderful, knowing exactly how to meet our needs. She has created a wonderful team to help coordinate every part of her home selling and buying effort.
We highly recommend using Lori has an excellent real estate broker to meet anyone’s needs.
Lori did such an outstanding and thorough job presenting our house that it sold within three days with eight offers that were all over the asking price with the final sale being for $55,000 over the listed price!
We could not have used a better broker than Lori.
We always felt that Lori was there to hear what we had to say and that she was always willing to talk with us about anything."

"We love Kim Gellatly! When it was time to sell our much-loved home, we didn't consider anyone else. As first-time home buyers with no money to spare, Kim helped us purchase our home for less than $200,000, and when we were ready to sell it eight years later, she helped us sell it for over $500,000. She is an aggressive negotiator, incredibly savvy, and cares for each of her customers as if we were the only ones. We have loved working with her, both times, and would unhesitatingly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home or property."

There were no surprises and the entire experience of selling our home and finding a new one was incredibly smooth. We interviewed 3 realtors and decided to go with Lori and she did not disappoint. I would highly recommend considering her for your next home transaction!
Knowing our personalities and our selling situation, Lori suggested a pre-inspection. Can't say enough about what a fantastic idea that was to eliminate any surprises and prevent us from being in a financial bind with the purchase of the new house!
Lori is fantastic in everything listed above! We appreciated her expertise and her vast network of professionals that also helped with the process."

"Janet is considered a family friend, she helped us out when my grandmother needed to sell her house some years back and kept in touch with my mother. When I was purchasing 5 years ago I got in contact with Janet and she helped me get into the house that we just sold, which was an amazing starter home and the experience could not have gone easier. To me the idea of selling the home without Janet's help wasn't going to be an option. Janet is an expert in her craft and values the relationships that can be built over the bottom line of making profits, she approaches the situation with open honesty and has the customer's best interest at heart. These types of interactions and the relationship building provide the desire to have Janet's help in future transactions, or if not available, then I would highly consider another agent from Berkshire Hathaway."

Even with that, she exceeded all expectations. We never had to wonder what was happening. She checked in regularly and always answered our emails promptly.
Kim's plan for our house was perfectly planned out and perfectly executed. Her marketing plan and reaching out to other agents clearly worked we had over 30 showings our first weekend. We had a dozen offers and ended up with an above asking sales price.
Kim had the perfect personality I feel like we were so lucky to have found her. Not only did she perform well, she was a warm, helpful, understanding person.
Thank you Kim!"

"As I have many brokers that are friends, I would not have used Berkshire Hathaway if not for Mr. Bierwagon's experience and performance in the real estate space.
Mr. Bierwagon's excellent communication before, during, and after the sale was another very important aspect of choosing Berkshire and him specifically.
Mr. Bierwagon is the immanent realtor in all aspects of knowledge, experience and communication. His knowledge is unparalleled, his experience brings the highest price in any market, and his communication is one of deep sensitivity and trust to all parties. I will solely use him on all of my real estate transactions.
Far exceeded my high expectations and my best experience to date in the purchase or sale of the many properties I've had over the years.

She is 81 and in poor health so was not able to handle many of the details that a seller would normally be involved in. As a result there were a number of unexpected issues that popped up during the process, and Lori handled all curveballs like a champ. She was able to walk my mom through the process in a way that made sense to her, and was sensitive to the concerns my mother had about departing her residence of the last 50 years.

"Lori was amazing to work with!! She is so knowledgeable and quick to share information that we felt very secure in the process. She had a solution for every obstacle we ran into and an answer for all of our questions. Being a native to the Portland area, she was able to give us details about neighborhoods that we would have not otherwise have known. Lori was always our advocate and would consistently go above and beyond during our stressful negotiation period.
Lori is amazing to work with because she really cared about getting us into our perfect home."

"Lori was recommended to me by my parents who had previously worked with Lori's husband Ron when he was a practicing real estate agent. Lori was so helpful and encouraging, and she really understood and prioritized our needs as first time home buyers! She was able to relate to us as a young and new family of 3, and made the entire process quick and easy. She was also very responsive and communicated with us excellently!"
Kelly Reyes (Buyer) Fri, 04 Dec 2020 03:57:44 +1000
"This was our first home buying experience and we could not be happier with how things turned out! Michael is clearly very knowledgeable, and was prompt and responsive at all times. He helped educate us at the beginning of our house hunting, and took extra time to help us feel comfortable and empowered during this process. Michael also helped set level expectations for us during every step. Because of that, we never felt disappointed during the process. We were able to trudge along, even in this tough market and during this extraordinary year. Michael's character is what makes him so successful. His candor, instincts, and relationship are truly a unique and delightful gift that sets him apart. We cannot thank him enough.
Michael is excellent and we appreciate him so much! Please see previous comments for more thorough review."

"Mark has built a trust level over several years, which made it easy to choose him when we were ready for our move.
The Warmanen Group handled the whole transaction very well, listened to our needs/concerns and used them during negotiations. When the inspection negotiations came in, he did a great job holding the transaction together.
Mark is a great listener, and was always accessible!"

"We met Jeffrey at an open when we were house hunting on our own. We knew immediately that he was perfect for us. We had spoken to other brokers but no one seemed to get us like Jeffrey. If we had it to do all over again, we would pick Jeffrey EVERY SINGLE TIME!
Jeffrey went above and beyond on our sale AND purchase. It wasn't an easy process and he always made us feel like we were his only clients and he had our best interest at heart."

"Kim Gellatly was more then we could hope for or expect in an agent! she went above and beyond in all aspects and giving her an excellent rating in all areas would still be under-rating her. She not only met our expectations, she exceeded every one of them, she was AWESOME!"

"We understood the local market to be hot, fast, and competitive, however, Lauren Musco shielded us from all of that. Our experience as a first time home buyer was comfortable. Lauren is well versed in the local area, approachable and easy to talk to and work with, and is above board. She was patient with our inexperience, amenable to our needs, and was very quick to respond or put pieces in play. We will heartily recommend Lauren Musco to anyone in need of a realtor."

"Iraida was an excellent representative for the sale of the home. The home was part of a Probate Estate and she had to relate to several people during the sale process. She has high energy: was at the home many, many times during the process. She communicates very well, keeps everyone informed. She presented a great plan and worked with the estate representatives well throughout the process. She is an A+ agent."

"Nathan was given the task of selling a property that was in bad condition and less desirable than most houses on the market which made it a lot harder to sell.
Nathan not only pre-qualified prospective buyers but made sure everyone was aware that it was an as is property and cash only purchase.
He always kept us in the loop on showings, presented all offers and had excellent communication skills.
Nathan is an excellent realtor and quite a gem to find, I would recommend him to any of my friends and family"

Daisy Ahnrecommended by Buyer view agent's profile
"As this was first time I have purchased a house through a realtor, I purchased my first house directly from a builder, I was unfamiliar with the process and of what to expect. Daisy helped me to understand the process by clearly explaining each step along the way. She initially asked what I was looking for in a house making suggestions for me to consider. She found several houses for me to look at and compare. At each, she pointed out features that would interest me and things that might be problems for me to consider. After I decided on a house, she explained what I needed to do at each step, taking time to make certain I understood clearly what I was doing. There were a couple of occasions where it seemed there might be a problem, however Daisy was able to resolve them easily and quickly. I was able to trust her as I was able to see that she always had my interest first, even after the sale had closed.
Daisy the penultimate professional. She engenders at great deal of trust by being up front and open about all aspects of the purchase, good and the not so good. She responded to my inquiries promptly and answered my questions clearly. Throughout the entire process Daisy was polite, friendly and helpful. She was very patient with me and took the time to make certain I understood what was happening at each step of the process. I knew what to expect at each point of the purchase.
I would and have recommended Daisy to my friends and family She puts her clients needs interests first. She demonstrated honesty and integrity throughout the entire purchase process and helped me find a house that meets my needs. She is a credit to Berkshire-Hathaway Home Services."
Mark Morrissey, Beaverton OR (Buyer) Fri, 11 Sep 2020 14:47:44 +1000
"The first time I attempted to purchase a home I was deeply disappointed by the agent we had been working with. I told my loan officer about that interaction and that I wanted a tough, but encouraging agent and she recommended Lauren. She was very pleasant to work with, and offered encouragement and some hand holding when I needed it. She made a difficult task much better than expected and I looked forward to meeting with her. She was excellent at communicating and always got back to me in a timely manner. She was patient and explained the things I didn’t understand, sometimes more than once. I’d recommend her to my friends without hesitation. She deserves a raise."

Lauren Muscorecommended by Seller view agent's profile
"Lauren was very professional and extremely easy to work with the entire process. Any of the bumps in the road of buying a house were either seen a long time ahead or handled with grace. We had a contingent sale and she helped balance both of them thoroughly all while I'm sure also helping other clients. Lauren is definitely a hard worker and great to have on your side!"

Daisy Ahnrecommended by Seller view agent's profile
"Daisy Ahn made this a completely positive experience. From start to close, Daisy was there to help me, first time home seller, through this process. At the beginning, she evaluated the house; its good points and bad. She explained and recommended a plan to get the house ready and her plan for marketing the house. This in and of itself was made difficult because of the location. She had an extensive pool of qualified experts to help me get the things ready. She maintained a positive attitude the entire time and helped me get through the process. She used her knowledge and marketing expertise to develop the plan. She developed an excellent plan and executed it with great skill and had the flexibility to adapt and make changes. In the end, the house sold for a price exceeding my expectations. Berkshire Hathaway has real gem of an agent in Daisy Ahn. Throughout the entire process I felt that she treat my interests as if they were her own. I plan to use Daisy for my exclusive agent for all my future real estate transactions. I would highly recommend her to others and be confident that they will be well served by her."

He thoroughly researched the property before approaching us and was persistent without being pushy which is why I knew he was the best for the job.

"I cannot speak highly enough of Kim and her team! Kim has a unique combination of being friendly, polite, and professional, while at the same time having the grit and negotiating skills to secure the best prices for her clients. I felt great confidence in her wealth of knowledge and helpful advice. She was always available to answer my questions and patiently consider options with me.

She is simply the best!"

"Jolynne and Malcolm are open, inviting and uplifting. They are very cognizant of the factors necessary for an outstanding real estate experience in the Portland area.
From our initial phone call to signing closing docs, Malcolm and Jolynne were on top of it -- they put together a detailed strategy, organized and scheduled contractors, preplanned for possible scenarios, and even took my donated furniture to Goodwill (that's above and beyond!).
Even more impressive was how they coordinated the offers, signing, and closing during COVID and our moving out-of-state -- it was seamless.
We originally bought our home through them and when we were ready to sell 15 years later we knew they were the ones that would make it happen -- and they did! It sold in less than a week!
Malcolm and Jolynne really are the best in the business!"

"Lori Ares is a partner ... a member of the family in the process. Her main focus is on the seller and their needs. She takes every bit of the process personal as if it were her home she was selling. Continuous and informed communication throughout. She went well above and beyond helping coordinate everything while we were a great distance away. She is incredibly resourceful, determined and honest. She was a calming voice in a pretty hard situation just losing both parents and having to move through this process ... and she did it with us and for us.
Lori Ares will be the part of your experience in your home sale that you will look back on and know she did everything she could and invested her time and heart into your needs. She won't hold back on things that are difficult ... total straight shooter and you always know where everything stands from listing to closing.
We were blessed to have her as out agent ... if you get the opportunity grab her quick!! Nothing but the best!!"

"Malcolm is a trustworthy, honest and hardworking agent. He listed my property for over a year and while the entire process was entirely stressful, I was thankful to have an agent that I could rely on and trust. The property was vacant for over 6 months as I lived in another state and Malcolm was accessible and willing to help in every way possible. I appreciate his directness, logic and straightforward manner in dealmaking."
