“We could not recommend Jessica enough! The process of buying and selling homes is extremely stressful and Jessica was so patient with us and really helped us make the best decisions with both buying and selling. She listened to what you wanted so well I almost think she knew what we wanted more than we did! She has exceptional communication; great at answering all questions, so kind when things are stressful, and very firm when advocating for her clients. I truly felt that Jessica was our biggest advocate in this process and that is the most important thing with such a big life decision. 13/10 stars!”

I noted one closing we completed with Chris (a recent second home/condo purchase) but it doesn’t come close to the number of transactions Chris has managed in my extended family. Seriously, parents (several), brother, brother in law, father in law (several, several), mother in law, friends, etc. We call Chris for everything. He’s knowledgeable, knows Portland metro better than anyone I know, and has an amazing group of inspectors, lenders, and closing officers that he can connect you with. Chris is honest, down to earth, and so enjoyable. You’ll love working with him – he makes it all so easy to navigate!

We made the right decision to work with Jessica to sell our house, especially given that we did the entire transaction from out of state.  We spoke with several realtors – Jessica was first on our list. We ended up going with her because she demonstrated the best working knowledge of our neighborhood and came prepared with up to date neighborhood comps. Jessica presented a clear, logical marketing plan and we agreed with her pricing strategy over others.

We were prepared to hunker down and possibly take 1 month or more to get a sale in this market.  Needless to say, we were delighted to get an offer on the 4th day of the listing and it closed in 23 days.  Yes, the house was in overall great shape, plus, we listened to Jessica and spent money to fix things up and stage it. Money well spent.  Jessica was easy to work with and flexible which was enormously  helpful given we weren’t there.  A lot of details we needed her to handle as our ‘boots on the ground’.   We can wholeheartedly recommend Jessica and would use her again if that ever presents itself in the future.

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!

Cyndi C. - Portland, Oregon

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

Barbara F. - Portland, Oregon

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.

Ben M. - Portland, Oregon

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.

anu b. - Portland, Oregon

We have been so impressed by the responsiveness and resourcefulness of Tony Apa and Courtney Clarke. From the start of the process and understanding our needs all the way to post-close. What an amazing team! Thank you, thank you, thank YOU!
