I specialize in the ever-changing "pocket neighborhoods" of the Portland, OR area.  My clients appreciate my local knowledge, negotiation skills, and commitment to operate only in their best interest.
I have called Oregon home for the past 32 years, and have had seven award winning years in the real estate industry with RE/MAX and John L. Scott as a multi-million dollar producing agent.  I've also been featured in Portland Monthly Magazine as a "5 Star" broker.
My wife and I just sold our Alberta Arts bungalow, and are having fun exploring the close-in SE neighborhoods.  During down time you will likely find us in the middle of DIY projects on the house or landscaping the yard.
If you're interested in selling or purchasing a Portland Metro area home, condo, townhouse, or buildable land please don't hesitate to call or email me for additional information.
Cheers!

      Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $350K in Piedmont, Portland, OR.
      Orly, he was as good a find as the house that he found for us! Dealing with an SO with exasperating specificity's, he was able to find something, negotiate an amazing price, and maintain a friendship with us afterwards! After a long search, he never lost patience and was always going above and beyond. To have Orly help finding us our first home, we couldn't be more grateful with his genuine nature and awesome service.  MoreLess

      Bought a home in 2013.
      Orly helped us find the home we were looking for within a month in a very competitive market. His expertise on how to approach looking for our house were spot on. He was available to us at anytime we had questions or decisions to make throughout the process. Very friendly and professional. We are using his services currently to sell a property, that experience has also exceeded our expectations.  MoreLess

      Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $425K in Piedmont, Portland, OR.
      Orly was awesome ... he went above and beyond our expectations. Orly became our representative just as we were about to finish staging our house - we thought that we might want to sell it on our own.But, we're sure glad that we chose Orly. Our work keeps us busy and there's just no way we could've pulled off the presentation and sale of the house in the way that Orly pulled it off. Orly didn't stand idly by and watch us prep the house to show. He provided some area rugs and a beautiful palm for our living room. He trimmed trees, spread some garden bark and nailed up some molding. He was more of an asset to the sale than I expected. He also did a wonderful job helping us with pricing, working with the offers and getting multiple offers in excess of our asking price.Orly was present at every step of the sales process which gave a sense of security that someone was watching out for our interest. We give any seller our highest possible, five-star all the way, recommendation to hire Orly Halpren as you real estate professional.
