"Michael is great. You cannot go wrong hiring him to help sell your home."
A Salz, Camas (Seller) Fri, 07 Aug 2020 09:33:02 +1000
"Michael was extremely knowledgeable and patient on a complicated sale involving a reverse mortgage and property in less than perfect condition and he gave excellent advice. 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. It was a difficult property to sell and he never gave up and ended up with it sold. I highly recommend Michael!"

"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!"

Jan Bayabo, Clackamas (Buyer) Tue, 04 Aug 2020 01:53:02 +1000
"Jordyn did a great job and I would highly recommend her. One big factor for myself as the seller is that Jordyn did not pressure us and I felt that she was truly looking after our interest. This has not been my experience with previous realtors. I am sure that she will be successful in the future with this quality."

"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."

"Rob Clark was very attentive, quick to answer questions, and educated us on any part of the process we did not understand. We felt that he provided much more than just what a realtor provides to a customer. He made sure we felt comfortable at each stage and fought for us when needed.
Rob truly is someone who takes time to understand what is important to you and will build your relationship around that. We asked a lot of questions and he knew being educated was important to us so he made sure to keep us updated at each turn and give us info on what to expect next."

Janet Daltonrecommended by Seller view agent's profile
"Janet did an outstanding job of selling my house the first week it was listed, plus following up with all of the details after I had moved to another state. I couldn't ask for a more professional, plus successful agent and I would, and have, recommended her to many. She's a real pro and I couldn't have asked for a better representative for Berkshire Hathaway.
I think my rating says it all. She is fabulous and I would choose Janet again, and again.
Jean Ketterling was extremely helpful, professional, friendly and makes a great addition to Janet's team."

"Lori Ares made me feel like i was her only client. Truly. No matter what time of the day or night, what she had going on or how busy she was she always took the time to make sure any concern or question I had was answered or addressed. I didn't have a lot of experience in selling or buying houses and Lori made the process extremely transparent and easy to work through. It truly was a pleasure to work with her and while I don't recommend a lot of people, I would recommend Lori without hesitation."

"When I first met Kim Gellatly, she was immediately listening and finding out what I was looking for (rather than trying to sell herself, which, of course, had me sold right away).
Kim does an amazing job and leaves her clients completely worry-free with her absolute trustworthiness and attention to detail. She is patient and never gives up, even if the dream seems impossible!
My miracle happened! Kim was a wonderful part of it."
Lisa (Newberg, Oregon) (Buyer) Wed, 08 Jul 2020 15:18:25 +1000
"Melissa went so far above expects for what I imagine a realtor would do for their clients. She had our best interests in mind the whole time - in the way that a family member would. She addressed every concern (no matter how trivial or inexperienced our questions were). And she did this through 7 offers over the span of a year. And, she did this all with grace and tact when dealing with all stakeholders. This was very important to us.
Melissa is amazing;) and, if she is Berkshire Hathaway, then we also think that the company is amazing."
Beth Hartford Beaverton (Buyer) Wed, 08 Jul 2020 03:41:00 +1000
"We will never use anyone other than Kim and her team. She has always been patient and made sure she knows exactly what we are looking for and helps us get what we want while making sure it’s a smart financial move for our family. She cares about our family and how we will enjoy our lives in our home more than her paycheck. Best agent out there and I recommend her to everyone I meet!"

"Kim Gellatly was wonderful to work with from the moment we contacted her! She is always responsive to questions/emails/phone calls. I live out of town, so had to trust my property to someone whom I had never met. She was on top of everything from day one! She facilitated repairs, was patient with any and all questions and made sure we were always apprised of all activity regarding the sale of this property, My only regret is that I did not have the privilege of meeting Kim in person!
I cannot say enough good things about Kim. Since I live out of town, I anticipated that the sale of my property was going to be trying at best. I feel truly blessed to have been able to work with her!
My experience with Kim deserves an A+!"

"This was our first experience in selling and buying in 25 years. We had in mind to choose Michael as a realtor should we ever want to buy and sell. We have known Michael as a brother in Christ for 22 years. Karen and I have always intended to have Michael represent us in selling our beloved home, and help us acquire a new one. He went above and beyond our hopes and dreams. If you're buying and/or a hope, you would be crazy not to have Michael Beirwagen represent you in your efforts. We have been truly blessed in working for Michael."

"Jeanie has been selling homes in our neighborhood for many years, usually very quickly. She came to my door many years ago to introduce herself and my impression was that she would be the “go to” person when it was time to sell our home. She exceeded my already high expectations with her professionalism, attention to every detail, properly evaluating my home’s value in the market, staging recommendations and the list goes on. She did an awesome job, plain and simple."

"As one who is particularly sensitive to customer service I feel compelled to call attention to the exemplary service we received by Jordyn in the course of selling our home.
Long story short and in no particular order, we found Jordyn to be upbeat, encouraging, personable, informative, responsive, knowledgeable,thoughtful, considerate, honest, professional, and confident.
It became quickly apparent that Jordyn conducts herself with a high degree of integrity. We felt that she always had a plan and always had our back.
That she sold our house in record time and at above asking price is absolutely worth noting but the real prize was that we felt we made a friend.

She did show us a home that would have been perfect. We fell in love but unfortunately, shortly after showing us the home, our situation changed and we began searching for a single family home. Lauren sent us many homes almost daily. We were outbid a couple times but eventually found a perfect home. She was definitely looking out for us during the buying process and negotiated a new roof! She made us feel like her friend and not just a client."

Once she understands your needs and wants, she will develop a plan to ensure that the transaction is successful.

She also updates you very often whether by email or text msg to let you know what is going on. This helped us feel connected so that we are not kept waiting and wondering negatively.

"I highly recommend Michael Beirwagen if one needs to sell property. Based upon the success of this transaction, and having observed his effectiveness in helping my daughter and her husband sell their previous home, and purchase their present one, I can say that he is worth his commission. The most recent transaction did not involve any home prep. However, for the sale of my daughter’s house three years ago, he gave them specific advice In readying it for sale which they followed to the letter. Despite the fact that the house was in a poor location, it sold for more than asking price the first weekend it was on the market."

We were looking for someone that we can trust and most importantly being patient to answer our questions and we are glad that we found Jeff!
Being first time home buyers, we were very anxious to explore this new territory but surprisingly Jeff made the overall experience painless and smooth. Jeff was there for us on all steps and his knowledge was a tremendous asset for us. He took the time to explain all the details and gave us plenty of information throughout the process.
Among all excellent characteristics that Jeff posses, we really appreciated him being accessible through phone and email. Jeff is very polite and friendly and most importantly patient.

She made the whole process painless and enjoyable. She is the absolute best. She is the model real estate agent.

He has offered many insights from his experience in the market and assisted us with our questions. He is patient and listens to our concerns and needs when selling our home.

Steven A., Clackamas (Seller) Thu, 13 Feb 2020 08:29:55 +1000
"Dealing with Kim was wonderful. We "found" her because we took a picture of her sign in front of property she sold a few years ago. That property sold at an excellent price and was on the market for a very short period of time so we thought we would give her a call. When Kim came to make her presentation she was prepared, knew the area, suggested a plan and the timing for listing our home. She suggested a strong price for the house and the house sold within days of listing at list price. There were 3 other properties within 100 yards and ours was the only house that sold at list.
She was a joy and a pleasure to work with AND she was right 100% of the time!
Kim attended to each of the above aspects of her campaign and met or exceeded expectations in each case. We were impressed, our friends were impressed and our family was impressed. She was pro-active without being pushy. She's SMART and knows the real estate business inside and out. She was balanced and pragmatic in determining what needed to be done to sell the house and what didn't. She did not take all the recommendations of the stager she hired - most, but not all and she was right in each case. She's an amazing real estate professional!
The stager was excellent and the title company was also excellent.
It could not have been better. Kim was wonderful to work with. Our only regret is that we are moving out of state so it's likely we won't be able to use Kim again in the future. She also recommended a realtor where we are moving and HE was excellent also.
Kim is a rare commodity these days. She's a terrific person and a terrific real estate professional."

"Seana couldn't have come into our life at a better time! My husband and I had been saving and preparing to buy our first home for 5 years and everything seemed to just fall into place. We were on an interesting timeline/schedule for when we needed to be in our home and she got us into EVERY house we wanted to see. Our schedules were limited to when we could actually go see the houses together and Seana was AMAZING at scheduling as many houses as she could - we saw 30 houses in 2 weeks! She is super great at answering questions and/or getting questions answered. Her communication skills were so appreciated!!!"

"I worked with Kim Gellatly in 2009 when I bought my house in Troutdale and is the main reason I went back to her. When buying this house, my sister and I worked with Jim Burgum, who is on Kim’s team. Jim did an excellent job of listening to what we were looking for in a house. He is very knowledgeable and is able to give good perspective when viewing different houses. Jim & Kim are both great to work with when buying a house!"
Sharon Reeder/Gresham, Oregon (Buyer) Sun, 09 Feb 2020 16:17:47 +1000
"Kim has a great understanding of the real estate market and was able to sell my house for what it was worth. At times when I would be discouraged because we had several people look at the house but no offers, she would call me and ensure me it would be a matter of time. She was right because shortly after that, we had two offers. She did a great job of keeping me informed throughout the process and answered all my questions. She is the best!
Buying and selling a house at the same time was very stressful; however, Kim & Jim Burgum made the process very smooth. I could not have done it without them. They are the best!"

"Choosing Iraida as our real estate agent was one of the best decisions that my fiance and I made. Iraida was professional, supportive, accessible and responsive. As a first time home buyer, she provided us the guidance that we needed to choose and purchase our first home. We truly appreciate Iraida's services and based off our experience, she has a long-time customer.
Iraida made us informed purchasers. She provided us options around items such as inspections/open houses but always completed it in a manner which didn't feel pressured. Only informed - which was great.
She's amazing at what she does. She's my go-to real estate person and someone I am 100% comfortable sending referrals to."

"Seana was amazing to work with! She really made sure that we understood everything and that we were never out of the loop on what was happening. It was a difficult transaction because of the sellers and their agent, but Seana made every attempt and making sure they got their work completed on time on top of ensuring she was doing all of the work on her end ahead of time.
I would reccomend Seana to all first time home buyers because she will never make you feel dumb for asking silly questions, she will work around your schedule and her communications are timely and helpful."

Carol Blakely, North Portland, OR (Seller) Wed, 08 Jan 2020 10:20:11 +1000
"As a first time home buyer, I had very little knowledge about the home buying process. Looking back on my experience, I am so grateful that I ended up with Iraida Hermann as my Realtor. Iraida was professional but also personable in a way that made me feel like I could trust her. Buying a home is no small purchase, and you want someone in your corner who has your best interest at heart. Iraida never tired of my relentless questions and was always quick to respond. Her knowledge and willingness to explain things really put my stress at ease. Even after the sale went through, she was more than happy to answer questions and provide resources. Without hesitation, I would recommend Iraida to anyone buying a home."

"Chip was an excellent professional. His knowledge and expertise was invaluable. His patience in explaining the contract language made me feel confident every step of the way. He was resourceful and very accessible for home tours and had several insights to the homes that my husband and I had not considered. Would happily recommend his service to anyone."

"I met Jean at an open house and we spent a good period of time talking about our needs and abilities. She was friendly and easy to talk to. That first impression was what encouraged us to work with her and the more we worked with her the more confident we were that she was the right person to help us.
Jean was so understanding of us and our needs. Even when we were going through the stress of negotiating with the seller, she was patient with me and my stress. I really appreciated everything she did."

"I met Kim Gellatly at an open house years ago. I followed her on social media and knew she had a stellar record for selling homes. She responded immediately when I reached out to her.
Thanks to Kim, my home had a full price offer in four days and she had an accepted contingent offer on the home I had my heart set on within 24 hours.
Kim kept me informed and up to date during the entire selling and buying process. She allayed all of my fears. Everything went smoothly from the first day to closing day."

"I was referred by Elderlife Financial and I couldn't have been happier with Jeff.
We were selling our family home of 48 years to pay for my mother's dementia care. The house needed improvements. Jeff's extensive market knowledge and experience guided us through deciding which improvements would have a positive return on investment. We had a bridge loan in place to finance the improvements as well as my mother's dementia care so a quick sale was imperative. Jeff sourced about a half dozen subcontractors to make the improvements and coordinated all of the work. He stopped by the house sometimes several times a day to ensure the quality of the subcontractor's work. My father was real estate broker, general contractor, and master carpenter so our family was very familiar with the various aspects the industry. That familiarity allowed us to appreciate Jeff's considerable real estate acumen.
The house was listed on a Friday afternoon and by Sunday evening we had an at price offer.
I think that Jeff really excels in the area of "soft skills." He was sensitive to our family's needs as it was incredibly difficult for us to make the decision to sell the house. Several members of our family have mental health challenges and Jeff was very patient, caring, and supportive of our unique needs throughout the process.
I can't sing Jeff's praises enough! I would love to have some of Jeff's business cards to be able to hand out to friends and co-workers looking for a broker."

"Being a first time home buyer, I was nervous and did not really know how the process should go. Was not sure if I was taking the right steps or not. Janet guides us through the entire process and was extremely patient in making sure we understood everything and every option in front of us. All her recommendations turned out great throughout the process. Best thing was that, you never feel pressured. In fact, some houses which we liked, Janet was quick to point out that it may not work for us because of xyz preferences which we had told were important to us (like a neighborhood for kid to play in etc). She was absolutely great, making the home buying process extremely easy and pleasant for us. Thank you Janet for helping us get a beautiful home..!"

"I rarely provide a review or testimony but I couldn't help but mention our experience with Kim. She is everything you could want in a real estate agent. She is friendly, professional, sensitive, knowledgeable, efficient, and hard working. Even though Kim does a high volume of transactions, she makes you feel that you are her only client. She keeps an ongoing communication and responds immediately to any communication that you initiate. You will not find a better agent to work with anywhere than Kim. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone."

"We selected Phil because he was referred to us by a good friend. After meeting with Phil for coffee and hearing about his experience in the Portland market, we knew we had found our agent. We moved to Portland about a year ago and needed someone that knew the Portland market but also provided insights on up-and-coming neighborhoods, areas where the city has historically seen success as well as areas that may never end up being a good place to buy.
Phil was amazing! From the beginning of the process he was on top of every detail. He asked the right questions, he was proactive in sending us properties to consider, and he was VERY patient with us throughout the searching process. Phil was extremely knowledgeable in areas of the house that are vital for new homeowners and that really gave us some peace of mind when deciding which property to put an offer on. Once the offer was accepted, Phil provided excellent guidance on negotiating, he provided market research to determine if our offer was in line with market expectations and he always kept our best interest top of mind. During closing, Phil had a family emergency and was not able to make the meeting and he still managed to provide excellent service from half-way across the country. We couldn't be happier with the process and thankful we found Phil. We will definitely be referring him and using him again in the future for any real-estate needs."

"I have known Lori Ares personally for almost 20 years and knew she would be the best realtor to sell our home.
My husband and I felt we could trust Lori with every aspect of selling our home.
Trust was key.
Lori sold our home quickly and with minimal interruption to our day to day lives.
We truly appreciated how simple and straight forward she made each and every transaction.
Because of her large network of connections within Berkshire Hathaway, Lori was able to connect with the right buyer for our home.
Lori's honesty, integrity and commitment to our best interest was key to our satisfaction."

If you are buying or selling, Nathan is the one that will get the job accomplished!"

"The property being sold was my Mother's house as she had passed away. I spoke with several other real estate agents; however, when talking with Michael we discussed his expertise with this type of property so given that and his demeanor, I chose to go with him. He did an excellent job. He was also instrumental in getting the property ready to sell as he also provided contact information to roofers, contractors and window replacement people for the repairs that were needed to the house. I live in Arizona, so this was most appreciated!
I couldn't be more pleased, Michael Lukman did an awesome job and if I lived in Oregon I would most definitely work with him again."

"I cannot sing Jeffrey's praises enough! I was a first-time homebuyer with little knowledge of how to approach this whole project. I had reached out to Jeffrey at the recommendation of a colleague (who also had glowing things to say about him), and within the day he had followed up with recommended contacts, next steps, and a way to structure my search around what was most important to me.
I was fortunate to find my home fairly quickly, but there were definitely some challenges to address. That's where Jeffrey really shone! The house was a For Sale By Owner with a very difficult seller. To make things even more challenging, we only had 9 days to close the deal before the seller left for an extended trip to Africa. Jeffrey handled the home inspection and negotiations with the seller like a champion. Not only did we meet our seemingly impossible deadline, but his work with the seller resulted in a much better situation for me.
I would recommend Jeffrey to anyone looking for a home in the Portland area! If I were to do this again, I wouldn't work with anyone else. Thank you, Jeffrey!"

Christina Dayrecommended by Buyer view agent's profile
"Christina Day was absolutely outstanding. It was important to me to find someone that I trust to help me find a house. I got a recommendation from someone who has known Ron Hansen and Christina for many years. Working with them was the best decision I ever made!
I took me almost 9 months to find the right place at the right price. Christina was patient, she listened to me and knew my needs well. She searched every day for homes for me, and she even steered me away from houses that were not within my budget. Every step of the way, she was by my side. She was a real estate partner in every sense of the word, and continually went above and beyond my expectations.
Not only does Christina have years of experience in the real estate industry, she is also a great human being! I feel like I found a fantastic house, and a friend at the same time. I highly recommend Berkshire Hathaway!!!"

"Jolynne and Malcolm were wonderful to work with. They are very knowledgeable about all the neighborhoods in the Portland/Vancouver area. We were only able to take a few day trips up from California and they made each trip a breeze by picking us up from the airport, mapping out the best route to see open houses, and explaining each neighborhood as we drove past them. I highly recommend Jolynne and Malcolm for buying or selling a place in the Pacific Northwest!"
Jessica Chang, Los Angeles (Buyer) Thu, 03 Oct 2019 14:45:59 +1000
"Once again, Malcolm and Jolynne guided me through a real estate transaction. Over the years, I've bought and sold many homes in many locations. I've never thought I had a bad relationship with any of the agents I've dealt with. But these two are another order of magnitude. They go to bat for you in ways I hadn't seen before.
In this case, I purchased some land. Malcolm researched many details about the property, consulted with other professionals, and gave me a real understanding of a complicated transaction. The last time, I sold a house. He not only recommended a good person to make necessary repairs, he actually made some of them himself. Another time, I bought a house with Jolynne's help. She was wonderful, guided me through a difficult inspection, negotiated successfully, just did a great job."

"Jeffrey Dirrim partnered with us to find our forever home in Portland. Our requirements for a house in a specific school district made the process challenging because real estate was selling within 24 hours of going on the market.
Jeffrey listened to us, worked with us and went to bat for us when we found the house we wanted. He worked non-stop for 48 hours to prepare a bid and get closure!
We had moved cross-country and needed to find a home, and a home we wanted, to get our kids in school. Jeffrey was there every step of the way and helped us find the home in the perfect location for our family.
Jeffrey started out as a real estate broker but ended up as someone we call a friend. He made a huge difference in our lives and I can't put words to how blessed we were to work with him."
