Jessica is simply the best! I have owned homes previously but being widowed and starting this process by myself initially was daunting. Jessica immediately helped me feel at ease with the whole process of getting my home ready to sell and finding the perfect new home we are now in. She walked me through every step, was patient with me when we had to put things on hold a few times due to the market, and answered every silly question I had. Jessica knows the Portland Metro area well! She is forthright, works hard, and knows how to negotiate to get the best sale for her clients. And she just has the best positive and pleasant way of working with every person who is a part of your home selling/buying process. Again, Jessica is simply the best!

Not only does Jessica possess superb negotiation skills and bargaining tactics, she is an absolute delight to work with. She is always on top of things, and she knows how to pull together contractors and workers to get your home in tiptop shape for selling. She really goes above and beyond to make sure that you are happy, that you are getting the best possible price for your home, and that the work being done on your home will provide a return on investment. Jessica is low pressure and sharp as a tack, I’ve seen her hold contractors and other realtors she is negotiating with accountable in a way that remind those she is talking to what their responsibilities are without alienating in any part of the process. I cannot say enough positive about my experience working with Jessica and my gratitude for selling our home at the highest possible price and getting into our beautiful dream home.

I cannot express how fortunate we are to have Jessica in our lives. Searching for the right house, especially in this competitive market, is overwhelming, stressful, and nerve-wracking; without Jessica, we would have been lost. She patiently navigated us through the market for nearly a year with her expert knowledge of the community and real estate. Her mind is a database of the local market’s development. If she didn’t know how to answer our question, she always tracked down the answer through her many contacts and resources. She helped us to know what to look for in touring a house. But, most importantly, she is just a wonderfully down-to-earth, generous, and genuine person. She was reassuring when the search was hard, and an open and honest sounding board when we had to make decisions. She helped us buy our current house and sell our old townhouse, and our friends we recommended her to share our enthusiasm. We’re so thankful to have gone through the process with her in our corner– and just so thankful in general to know her!

I have worked with Lee Davies on a few real estate sell/purchases over the years. He/His team is always focused on the clients needs. They have a true understanding of the market as a whole and understand every client, even a returning client needs individual and unique industry advise. A sell/purchase during this pandemic gives a new meaning to customer service and Lee and his team did not disappoint once again. Jennifer Holland was my go to realtor and I can count hundreds of text messages and emails between us through out the process. She never sleeps, is so professional and knows what you need before you do. Thank you to team Lee Davies and Jennifer Holland

It had been over 25 years since we had bought or sold a home and Lee Davies/Jen Holland helped us do both , in a very competitive market. We found a home that we liked in a neighborhood we have always been interested in and contacted lee for help in the buying process. He and his associate Jen Holland helped us to write a winning offer and then helped us navigate the inspection period. We also hired them to list our existing home which , at over 100 years old, was a special property that required a buyer who understood the special properties of a historic home. Jen’s attention to detail through the marketing process and Lee’s strategic advice on fielding the many offers we received in a short time were invaluable in securing a successful sale at an excellent price. This is an experienced team who has no doubt seen it all!

We came to work with Victoria Marchese via a recommendation and we couldn’t be happier. She was a consummate professional. Her communication skills meant we never felt out of the loop, and as first-time home buyers, the way she talked us through our questions was vital for us during the process. In the beginning, Victoria truly took the time to get a deeper understanding of what we were looking for in a home; we never felt like just another client. When negotiating repairs, even up against deadlines, she always had our best interest front and center. All of the challenges that you would think come with buying a home during a pandemic were virtually non-existent for us, and I put that down to Victoria’s excellent work ethic and guidance. I would definitely recommend her to friends and family.

Tony Apa and Courtney Clarke were a fantastic team.  They literally came to our house for the first time in the middle of a remodel and within 2.5 weeks of meeting them, our house was pending.  From the staging to the brochures to the house video, they knew how to do it all. They are a fantastic team that complement each other well in terms of IT expertise, communication with clients and potential buyers, as well as friendliness and trustworthiness.  I 100% recommend them and you will be in great hands with them.

We started working with Lauren Sinha in 2017 looking to buy are first home.  Our experience then was amazing and Lauren took so much of the stress of being a first time home buyer off of our shoulders.  As we started to look at our buy our next home we immediately thought of Lauren.  We spent several months looking at dozens of homes this year in a crazy market.  After multiple offers and being out bid, we finally found a home we absolutely love.  Lauren knows the market and how to close a deal.  When it comes time to selling our home Lauren will be our first call and she is the only agent we refer people too.

Josh Gainer is an awesome realtor and we feel so lucky to have worked with him!  He is extremely knowledgeable about the buying process and helped guide us every step of the way.  His patience, kindness and expertise will have us using him as a realtor in the future!!

This was our first time buying a home and Jon Ziegler was phenomenal throughout the entire process. He walked us through every step so we knew what to expect throughout every step so we knew what to expect. He was available at any time to answer any questions or concerns. He always had our best interests and was able to negotiate a great offer for our home. We wouldn’t want to go through this process without such an experienced and personable agent. We would recommend him to any family and friends that are seeking to buy or sell their home.
