We connected, but it did not work out. Looking in Northwest, Portland, OR

Did not show me the properties I requested to see, but rather showed properties in the same area, but ones he was curious to see. He did not take me seriously and told me after one day of showings that he did not want to work with me. I had cash in the bank and was a ready buyer. His loss. I found what I was looking for and bought thru someone else. Hubris of youth perhaps...

Yikes, a bad review. :( In all fairness, I did say I could no longer be able to help her after one showing. Money in the bank, although required to buy real estate, is not the reason I choose to work or not with someone (sometimes people need to know what they are saving up for, and I am always happy to help with that)! We started seeing properties that were in the price range she wanted to invest in and then was disappointed, so I showed her properties that matched her needs. Budget $300,000 vs Needs $800,000 (this is normal for most out of towners, and I am sure everyone can agree that perspective is important). After that, we had two other appointments scheduled, which were both canceled by her at the last minute via email or text. I decided to move on though mostly because my time was not respected. AND I do appreciate any comment with the word "youth" in it referenced to me! #36

Sold a Condo home in 2012 for approximately $225K in Milwaukie, OR.

Brian is amazing. Only call him if you want to sell your home fast and for more than what you thought you could get. He considers everything before setting a price - not a 'here's the checklist' experience at all. Be ready to move when you call Brian!

Sold a home in 2014.

Had a great experience with Brian! He made a rather daunting process easy and manageable. Also, really listened to what I was looking for in a home (I'm rather picky) and found the perfect place for me.

Bought a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $275K in Portland, OR.

We, the buyers, had abruptly experienced a lack of communication with the seller's realtor for more than 4 days during early stage of the process. No explanation was given to Mr. Brian Ramsay to whom we kept asking the reason behind. Brian was understanding our uneasiness and tried very hard to contact the seller's realtors; as a matter of fact, this happened during the Independence Day long week end.

He was very helpful, very honest, reliable, kind, and trustworthy. I'd strongly recommend him to my friends. It was my pleasure to receive his service this time.

M/M K. Thank you so much for all your patience and communication while we got your transaction on track. I love when people from California move to Oregon and embrace our community. Portland is lucky to have you and I am grateful and appreciative you chose to trust me with your investment.

Thank you sir. I remember when you first came to us a couple years ago from another client of ours and asked for my advice on what condo to buy. You made a great choice and I am so happy it appreciated the way it did. I almost wish I bought that condo first! This client also chose me to help them sell once they left Portland. A honor in deed (no pun intended)

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $300K in Foster-Powell, Portland, OR.

This man is amazing. Brian sold our house in a less desirable location, for more than we anticipated, within 36 hours. Enough said, right? But Brian's awesomeness exceeded our high expectations. He also got us into our dream home (we were the first to look at the property) soon after we sold, and got us a great deal to boot! He was professional, friendly, on top of every detail, smoothed out any potentially speed bumps as they approached, was timely in correspondence and was able to meet and get us in for showings right away in this competitive market. Brian Ramsay is basically the Superman of Real Estate. We've already recommended him to multiple friends and we'd work with him again in a heart beat.

You and your family are the most fun I have had in a transaction all year! There was a lot of laughing.....and some crying, but through all the challenges that presented themselves, you worked through it and came out ahead at the end of the day! Thank for giving me a great property to market and sell, the condition and clients were AWESOME! I was actually a little sad when you closed on both houses only because we went from talking everyday to not much at all..... Feel free to visit me when you are in the area. With much gratitude, -B

Bought a home in 2014.

I was new to the Pearl District and NW Portland and did not know the area well. With his in-depth knowledge of the market and available properties, Brian was able to help me quickly find a property that satisfied my criteria and fit my price range. He was of great assistance in negotiating a fair price. After it was on contract he carried more than his share of the load to ensure that closing was successfully achieved. And, after closing, when I was in another State and my smoke detector battery died (and the beeping was starting to annoy the neighbors), Brian took the initiative to go over and change it himself. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Brian to anyone looking for a top notch real estate professional.

Bought a home in 2014.

Brian really went above and beyond for me as a first-time home buyer. He was so much more attentive and thoughtful than the previous realtor I worked with, and really helped me to understand the process. Not only that, he was great at listening and providing clarification when I needed help. It was a difficult process that we went through, largely as the result of a thoroughly unprofessional seller's agent, and Brian was able to navigate several pitfalls and get the deal done. I would highly recommend him to first-time buyers or returning buyers.

Steven you have a lot to be proud of. This is was your first big investment and you took on a mountain and owned it. The property is and well be an excellent investment and I can hardly wait to see your face the day you sell it and receive the check. I will always be available to help you make choices based on market desire and need. Here is a toast to you and your hard work. Thanks for trusting me to be apart of it. -B

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $400K in Humboldt, Portland, OR.

I have purchased many properties and Brian is the best Realtor I've ever worked with. He's always available, very knowledgeable, and has great negotiation skills. He always went above and beyond.

The pleasure was all mine. I love the goals you set and helping you align them with the real estate market was fun and a big win for us both! Thanks for selecting me to help you, I know that you are apart of a system with many to choose from and it was a honor to have been apart of this with you. -B

Sold a Condo home in 2014 in Northwest, Portland, OR.

Brian did a great job in listing and selling our condo. Hi knowledge of the local market and his timely communication skills were essential since we lived across the country in NY. His advice on staging the condo was instrumental in selling it. Brian has made this a nearly stressless experience. I would highly recommend him.

Working for a well known and respected out-of-state broker is both a pleasure and can be intimidating at the same time. I appreciate you trusting me through the Oregon process and allowing me to do what I do best without micromanaging the project. It is always a huge compliment when someone from your own industry chooses to work with you. With much gratitude -brian
