If you’re in Portland Oregon and you’re looking for a great realtor, I’d like to suggest ours. Benjamin was great throughout our entire house hunting and buying process. He made sure we got pre-approved in the very beginning of our search so that if we found the house of our dreams, we’d be ready to act. He gave us great recommendations for mortgage brokers and home inspectors. One day, while my husband and I were driving around, we came across the house of our dreams, having an open house just three days on the market. We called him that Sunday afternoon to tell him we had found a great house we were interested in. He met us within a hour and a half and went through the house with us. He then called the seller to let her know we were interested and we wrote up a offer that night. He had us write a personal letter to the owners to help increase our chances and I think it really helped. The sellers accepted our offer the next day. I think we were able to get this house because he acted so quickly and was so easy to work with. He was great during negotiations, helped make sure we didn’t wind up with a bunch of repair costs. At closing he brought us flowers that matched the house! And a couple days after we got the keys, he contacted us to make sure everything was going ok.
Besides being a great realtor, he’s also a great guy. We enjoyed spending time with him and totally trusted him. During the process, he made sure we were always kept up to date with the lenders and sellers. Since this was our first house, he gave us tons of information along the way so we understood what was going on. He was great at pointing out potential repairs/improvements and estimated costs for them so that we’d have a rough idea of what we were looking at for time and money.
We were referred to him by friends who gave him a glowing review. I’d like to pass on more glowing recommendations for him.
