Sold a Single Family home in 2014 in Argay, Portland, OR.

Orly helped us sell our house during an extremely busy and stressful time in our lives. We had a home-based business, two small children at home and we were moving across the country in less than a month. And the house needed repairs, painting and landscaping. Orly and his team took care of everything. He had a network of the best contractors to do the work. Orly, his team and the workers overhauled the house and yard for considerably less than our budget. The house sold at full price within a few weeks after it was on the market, and we were able to close from 2,300 miles away. I would not hesitate to recommend Orly to any friends or family in the Portland area. He is superb.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $200K in King, Portland, OR.

Orly did an awesome job for me. I spotted a townhouse with multiple competing offers. I ended up getting the house for less than I thought and Orly managed to trim an extra $20k off the purchase price during the inspection period for a problem we already knew about. Definitely will be using him in the future for all buying and selling in the Portland area. Thanks Orly!

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $350K in Boise, Portland, OR.

Orly Halpern is amazing! I cannot recommend him enough. I know this might sound a bit over the top, but honestly I can't use enough superlatives to describe Orly. The time between meeting with Orly and getting our house on the market was literally a few weeks. Much had to happen in the between time and Orly was instrumental in meeting our timeline. He is a talented aesthete as well as a strategic genius. And somehow he remains calm throughout the stress and emotional roller coaster that house selling can be. Since the sale I've had time to sit back and reflect and realize how lucky we are that things turned out the way they did since the margin of being able to put down as much as we needed to on our new house was so close. The house sold for almost $50,000 more than I thought it would! I have extra appreciation for Orly's expertise and ability to move with such ease through this process! I have sung his praises to my friends and anyone I know who is considering selling their house.

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.

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.

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.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $225K in Kenton, Portland, OR.

Orly helped us buy our first home (kenton area), and we couldn't be happier with the way everything worked out. He was very helpful, attentive, and patient through the search process and never made us feel pressured towards one way or another. He has a good eye for potential problems that could arise with any house, and is very knowledgeable about the area we were looking in (N. Portland). He was also very skillful and thorough throughout the closing process. Even after the house was ours he offered us some very helpful advice and references for contractors to help us with any work that did need to be done. We will definitely call Orly when we need help again in the future.

I can't believe I waited so long to write Orly a raving review. This man made buying my first home an incredible experience. His passion for real estate made buying a house a thrilling experience, and his responsiveness and complete disclosure took the guess-work out of the process. Orly is very personable and will bend over backward to help out in even the smallest way. I honestly cannot think of a single complaint in working with him. Should I ever buy or sell another house in Portland, Orly will certainly be the person I turn to.

Bought a home in 2013.

If you are seeking the typical 'take your money and run' real estate agent Orly Halpern is not your agent. If you are looking for an intuitive, honest expert in the ever changing portland area market who will listen, be available to you, and tirelessly search for the home of your dreams, negotiate the best price, keep you informed of all your options while maintaining the high integrity then by all means Orly Halpern is your real estate agent. You will not be disappointed. He exceeded our expectations which takes a lot as we have been around the block a few times and bought and sold more than just a few homes.
