Monique gave us the best experience as young first time home buyers! She took everything into consideration, worked hard with our schedules, and made sure that we were satisfied with our home!

"Brett was recommended by another realtor from his office who had the listing for a house we were interested in. Since that agent couldn't assist both that seller and us as a potential buyer he said he would put us in touch with Brett. We didn't pursue that deal further, but Brett continued to assist us in our house search. He was very helpful early in our search, when it didn't seem very likely we would find what we wanted. He stuck with us throughout. Never let us down. We are very impressed with his dedication and we are very pleased with the house he eventually helped us buy!
Brett was available at all hours. Always responsive. And, sensitive to our feelings and fears as the process became a little difficult at times.
Brett did a great job! "Nuff said."

Some for the papers that we had to fill out or sign that were sometime difficult to understand, Bret was very patient and helpful. Because I am visual impaired, he was my second set of eyes. Not only were they our relators but became our friends."

"Bonnie Drake worked tirelessly on our behalf in our two-year search for the perfect vacation home in the Rhododendron area.. There were many ups and downs along the way as might be expected in the frenzied, pandemic-driven market which elicited escalating bids from multiple buyers on any home coming on the market. In a market like this, we were fortunate to have Bonnie Drake in our corner who was invaluable in helping us navigate the extraordinary circumstances of this market.
We initially chose to work with Bonnie based on her knowledge of the area and her excellent customer relationship skills. As our business relationship strengthened, so too did our appreciation of Bonnie's attention to every detail, her persistence and constant encouragement throughout the ups and downs of the search, her availability even at weekends. Need I say more. Berkshire Hathaway is indeed fortunate to have someone like Bonnie with the experience, knowledge, relationship skills, and overall competence across all dimensions of the real estate business. She is an exceptional realtor and we would strongly recommend her to any potential buyer."

"It didn’t matter if it was a question or what felt like a crisis, Monique was there! We live 5.5 hours away which could have complicated the process, but Monique would go by and check on things, she was quick with any documentation. It was a pleasure to meet and work with Monique.She is a class act and we are so appreciative of her level of service.
Monique’s reputation as a sales professional. Her integrity, knowledge of the area, trends and current market values.
On a scale of 1-10 she would be a n 11! I had never met her prior to initial consultation as we began the process. She is TOP NOTCH! She went above and beyond any expectation we had going into the transaction. She was SENSATIONAL!
The experience from start to finish was outstanding!
Monique was there! Not one regret, she was always quick to respond and assist in navigating the entire process.Her confidence and calm demeanor was so impressive from our first meeting through funding."

"I so appreciate Kristy's attention to detail. Her knowledge of how to "set up my home" to make it inviting to buyers was so extremely helpful. We literally had a house that was just down the street from ours list on the same day. The fact that she was open and informative of the "competition" and how to be successful was more than I expected. She has always been very supportive and has a vast amount of knowledge with the entire process. We had not purchased a home in almost 20 years and to be honest we were absolutely dreading the process. Kristy has been there on every turn, every bump, and obstacle to make the "drive" as comfortable and stress free as one could possibly experience. It is so nice to know that Kristy has nothing but our best interest in mind and you can see that it everything she has identified, addressed, and shared with us during this journey. I will absolutely be recommending Kristy to all of my friends and family for any and all of their realtor needs. You are lucky to have her as an employee.
It all happened so fast! Kristy listed our house the same day our daughter graduated from high school. The weekend was Father's Day so we had asked for no viewing be scheduled and Kristy complied without hesitation. We had our showing that Monday and it was the first scheduled family that responded with a cash offer. Wow, what a whirlwind and Kristy was beside us all the way educating us with all the necessary paperwork, explaining in detail what each signature was confirming. Kristy explained the current value of our home and also the surrounding properties. We kept within the competitive scope of the market. Extremely happy at the smoothness of the process.
Talk about consistent! Kristy was very flexible and knowledgeable all while listening to our concerns. Every time we reached out to Kristy for answers we literally felt like we were her priority at every step with her almost immediate responses. Her recommendations along with our concerns made us feel like we were being listen to and that is priceless. She earned our trust almost immediately and that is something that is not an easy feat. She never talked "above" us or made us feel confused. Her clear and precise explanation of every step just show more of her professionalism all the while treating us like a member of the family."

"It was critical that we had someone that was going to work hard for us and that other people had worked with in the past because we were so new to the process. We had heard great things about Monique and knew she would be a great fit for us.
Monique was a huge part of our buying process and was able to help us every step of the way. She was always available and worked well around our schedules to make sure we were able to see the properties needed. We could not have done it without her!
She was the best, period! My wife and I are new home buyers and we were blown away by Monique’s professionalism and ethics. She answered all questions for us and guided us through the process like a true expert. We will always consider her a friend and could not recommend her enough."

Monique is a very honest and trustworthy agent. She is a stickler for everything being done in a timely manner. I found her Very easy to work with and Very Professional.
Monique is a little ball of Energy and only had my Best interest at heart. I have never sold a house before, and she walked me through every step. She was very interested in everything we talked about and made sure I understood what was going on and why it was going on. I never had a problem getting a hold of her, which I did often.

Jennifer Brink, Rhododendron, Oregon (Seller) Tue, 03 Nov 2020 04:51:56 +1000
"I have been looking for a specific kind of house in specific type of location for about three years with multiple realtors unsuccessfully. I had only emailed Monique two times about some places that didn't fit my loan type but she had already committed me and my needs to memory.
When the house came on the market she immediately called me and I went out, viewed the property and I made an offer that same day. There was some negotiation, and out bidding, but she convinced the buyer to accept my offer, which was less than I would have been willing to pay, but she knew exactly how to play it.
There were a few repairs needed before closing and some that would be needed after I moved in. She made sure that the presale repairs were completed and inspected correctly, and that I was more than adequately compensated for the post sale repairs, and in fact, insisted on the inspections that found them. She really knows houses, and she really covered all the bases!
There are two types of realtors in my experience. The kind that wait for things to happen, and the kind that make things happen. You want someone who makes things happen. You want Monique!
Thanks Monique, you're Awesome!!!!!"

"Karen Bissell was organized, calm, and thoughtful about the process from start to finish. This was a very unusual time to list a property (COVID) and she was flexible about listing and un-listing when everything slowed to a stop.
She was very communicative with both us and the property managers, and made sure she was available to show it even at short notice, and managed to keep the ship steady for closing even when the property managers were a little challenged by local wildfires.
She advised us well. We would use Karen again in a heartbeat."

"Monique Farinha provided us the same level of service on the purchase of a small land only property as we could have received on a purchase of an expensive lavish home. She was responsive on weekends and even when she was on vacation. Always very detailed knowing the next steps with great follow up. She helped us navigate the purchase of a very difficult Sandy River front property with a hard to reach seller, tricky county zoning issues due to river conservation and floodplain restrictions along with a complicated, protracted and murky title deed process to resolve before closing. Her selection of a professional title company and her relationship with them was also key to success. Honestly, I think a realtor with less integrity than Monique would have passed on helping us early on in favor of an easier/larger commissions with other clients. Monique was a trusted partner in the process looking out for us."

"Bonnie was recommended to us by friends who had contracted with her to sell their house. We met with her and were immediately impressed with her knowledge and level of professionalism. My brother and I were selling our father's house because we needed the money to continue to pay for his care in a memory care community. She listened to our situation and was very understandable and kind. We felt very confident that she was the right person to choose.
Bonnie did an excellent job of walking us through the entire process; she was always available when we had questions or needed guidance. The house sold in 36 hours for $25,000 over asking and 9 offers! Very pleased!
We utilized the Home Services staff to make recommendations for professionals to do repairs on my father's house, and was very pleased both with Rosie, and with the companies that we used. Also, the buyer was a client of another Berkshire Hathaway agent and he was also very professional and friendly."

She is very sincere and you feel very comfortable working with her. She has lots of suggestions to help you prepare to sell your home, and resources available for you. We can’t say enough good about how Bonnie managed our sale and obtained a good, fair price. She was just simply awesome! Thank you Bonnie!

"Bonnie Drake is my go to real estate agent. I have bought and sold multiple homes with her assistance. She is always up to any challenges that come up. This last sale involved 2 home and the purchase of another. Bonnie kept me up to date on what was happening. My family uses her talents in the real estate transactions. You can't find a better agent in Sandy."

"I have now bought 1 and sold 2 properties with Bonnie as my agent.Would not have it any other way.
This was a tough piece of property to sell with easements and other oddities but Bonnie continued to work with me and prospective buyers until she got the deal done.
I couldn't ask for any better. After doing 3 deals with Bonnie over the last 3 1/2 years I consider her to not only be a very trusted business partner but a friend as well. If you find yourself in need of Realty services call Bonny and then you can stand back and let her work her magic."

"We had been looking at properties in the area when after connecting on Zillow Monique Farinha came to one that we were reviewing. While the house we were looking at did not meet our needs, Monique stepped right in to assist us with honest assessments as our buyers agent. We were more than a client we were partners.
Monique was there for whatever we needed whenever we needed it.
Our purchase was timely and painless, this was due mostly to Monique and her recommendation of the Lending Agent . They were a wonderful team.
I would STRONGLY recommend Monique Farinha to anyone interested in exploring Real Estate. She is the BEST"
Luann Lundell-Matthews Boring Oregon (Buyer) Sat, 22 Aug 2020 03:12:11 +1000
"Monique Farinha is an incredibly friendly and warm person. She makes herself available to you every step of the way. She also has a keen understanding of the market and was able to understand what type of home I was looking for really quickly. Because she was able to know what type of home I wanted, we didn't waste a ton of time on homes that would be of little interest.
She's very timely and made the whirlwind process of finding a home feel effortless. I would work with her again as she made the whole process of finding a home a delight. She also has a large network of other people in the industry that will make your home purchasing/selling process seamless."
Diane, Portland (Buyer) Wed, 12 Aug 2020 04:50:26 +1000
"I contacted three real estate brokers in the area. Monique Farinha was the quickest to respond with a valuation on the house. She was confident in her assessment. She really knows the market. I have worked with many brokers before and this is one of the best experiences I have had. We will definitely be calling Monique again for real estate services in the area. She is highly recommended. Thank you, Monique!"

"Kristy could not have been more considerate during this entire process! She understood that this was a big move buying my first house and made it very easy. She consistently kept communication regarding new houses on the market, what I was looking for, and how the process went once I finally decided to make an offer. She was always there first thing when I needed help or an understanding. I couldn’t have asked for a better agent for my first home buying experience!"

"Zillow connected us with Monique and we couldn't be happier with her. She is just amazing. I can't say enough good things about her. This was our 3rd home purchase, our 5th real estate transaction ever, and this was by far the best experience we've ever had with a realtor. Monique is professional, friendly, detail-oriented, quick, and just absolutely great at what she does. She is just off the charts in every way. We couldn't be happier with the service we received from her. She exceeded our expectations in every way."

Felt Monique had my best interest in mind at all times. Would wholeheartedly recommend Monique to anyone interested in working with a realtor who is professional, articulate, extremely knowledgeable and efficient."
Denise Costa Oregon (Buyer) Mon, 15 Jun 2020 12:20:29 +1000
"I had just fired a broker who talked me into listing the house at an inflated value. When I talked to Steve he told me what I needed to know to sell the house, not what he thought I wanted to hear. The previous broker had 3 showing on the house in two months. Steve had an offer on the house in two weeks. And he was there for me every step of the way until the sale closed.
Steve is an honest realtor in a sea of sharks."

"I went into the home-buying process very apprehensive, having heard many unsettling stories from others of their buying experiences. However, meeting with Karen she immediately made me feel at ease and comfortable. I could tell she was knowledgeable and hard working and was the type of person to go above and beyond. She immediately got to work and with her diligence, attention to detail and assistance, the process went considerably faster than I ever expected. She helped find my children and I the perfect new home. I will always be grateful to her for all of her help, patience and kindness."

"Selling a home with Bonnie Drake as my agent made the whole process less stressful. She was able to provide helpful suggestions, encouragement and a cheerful outlook I appreciated so very much. Bonnie knows the market, the area, and what needs to be done to successfully sell your home. I strongly recommend her if you are looking to sell your house. Bonnie provides a high level of service I had never experienced previously in selling 5 other homes over 30 years throughout the NW."

"Karen was amazing through the entire home buying process! As first time home buyers we really took our time looking for the perfect home for us and she was patient and understanding. Even though our search was long she checked in regularly and never gave up in helping find the one. 10/10 you should use Karen to buy or sell your home!!"

Judy Nebeker, Oregon (Seller) Tue, 26 Nov 2019 16:47:58 +1000
"My wife and I met Bonnie when we stopped at an Open House she was holding and even tho it was not the house we were looking for both of us were impressed with how Bonnie presented the house. She protected the home and its contents while not being too obvious. When my wife and I got back in our car we decided to hire her to find our dream house, which she did. We told her exactly what we wanted and she showed us many homes until we found the one. When it came time to sell some properties Bonnie was our only call and it sure feels good to have her taking care of the business end.
My wife and I think of Bonnie as not just our Realtor but a friend we can call and keep in touch with even when we don't have current business deals in the works.
We have done 2 deals with Bonnie and have at least 1 or possible as many as 3 more in the future. In this crazy and fast spinning world it is so refreshing to work with someone like Bonnie who has rock solid old fashioned values, who has your back, and is honest and as ethical as the day is long. It means the world to me to be able to toss her the keys to your kingdom and know it's in good hands."

"Monique was fantastic to work with on our effort to find a home on the mountain. She is extremely responsive and seems to work 24x7 so always responded to our questions immediately. She did such a great job finding us our house to purchase and negotiating the transaction, we've asked her to help us sell our land that we own."
