Team reviews

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 in Fair Oaks, Oak Grove, OR 97267.

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.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $250K in Vose, Beaverton, OR.

We were first time home buyers and needed some guidance and expertise throughout the entire process. Orly was there every step of the way to help us find and purchase the perfect home for us! He listened to what we wanted and really catered our search to meet our expectations. He was readily available at all times and we really felt that he was working hard for us. He is very knowledgeable and good at keeping you informed at each stage. He is a skilled communicator and negotiator. We would highly recommend him and plan to work with him for future purchases.

Bought a home in 2012 in St.Johns, Portland, OR 97217.

We were referred to Orly by a trusted business associate and couldn't have been happier. He was professional and informative and really looked out for us throughout the entire transaction. He was genuine, thoughtful, paid attention to what we were looking for and always made time to check out a house when we needed to. That was key in this competitive market and made all the difference. As a result, we got a home that we are so excited about and will serve our family for many years to come. Orly earned our future business for any real estate needs and I will refer as many friends and family to him as I can. I can't recommend him highly enough!

Bought a home in 2012 in Concordia, Portland, OR 97211.

Orly was the absolute best choice for us - first time homebuyers. He took lots of time to get to know us and really understand what it was we wanted. Being very new to the process, he explained things in terms we could understand and we NEVER felt forced or pressured. He let us know that it might be a long process, but that he would be with us every step of the way. He was always accessible and worked with our tricky schedules to show us any house we wanted to see. It is apparent that Orly knows what he's doing, and he's really good at it. He helped us find the perfect dream house and patiently helped us through the two months of negotiations, always fighting for the best deal. What impressed me most about Orly was his willingness to always look out for our best interests above everything else. He helped us through home inspections and explained everything to us so that we could make the most informed decision. I really can't say one negative thing about our experience with Orly. I would very highly recommend him for any real estate transaction, he seems well-equipped to handle all scenarios and price points. I don't easily trust people, but Orly simply radiates trustworthiness and made our decision to use him as our agent an easy one. We will be using Orly for years to come!

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $275K in Eliot, Portland, OR.

My husband & I just closed on a property in Portland, OR. The experience was terrific, and wanted to take the time to let you know just how amazing our broker, Orly Halpern, was in assisting us with this sale. Orly is an extraordinary hard-working, dedicated, & honest person. His knowledge, objectivity and diligence in helping us sell our property in a price range that that fit our needs and likes was invaluable. In addition, Orly is an absolutely terrific person. He is smart, funny, and very, very caring. In all, he is positively remarkable and we fully believe that it was very much due to Orly that we were able to sell our home in a short timeframe given a tough economic market. He understood the importance of selling our house at a good price and followed up on ALL angles possible to ensure that we would be able to sell our home without compromising our bottom-line. He kept us informed, educated us on the process, making it look very easy. The sale of our home happened so quickly that we were not fully ready to move into a new home. Orly worked with us as we transitioned into an interim home, and continues to follow up with us, as we look for future homes that meet our expectations, budget, and dreams. We can’t thank Orly enough for being an outstanding broker!

Orly was wonderful to work with through this entire, long and sometimes difficult process. Most importantly, he really understood what I was looking for and spent a lot of time finding the perfect property for me, I am so jazzed to be in the house I have.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $450K in Irvington, Portland, OR.

Orly did a great job helping us find the house that was right for us and in the perfect neighborhood and price range. We had some specific requirements and he took the time to look at possible houses for us so that we didn't have to waste our time on houses that wouldn't meet our needs. He also gave us good advice on whether or not a house could be reasonably modified and had some great ideas. Overall, he was very responsive and flexible to our schedules and made the process as easy as it could be.

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $200K in Lents, Portland, OR.

Orly was absolutely wonderful. This was our first home buying experience and he was nothing but helpful and patient. He made himself available for our schedules, he was honest with his opinion without being overbearing, and was very helpful in the process overall. Orly made buying a home really enjoyable. Both my husband and I felt calm and sure of ourselves because of his help. Orly also listens. He pays attention to your price range and respects where you are at. That was very important to us in this process. I would recommend him to all my friends and family. In conclusion, we have been in our home for about a month now and it's wonderful! Even though the sale is completed, Orly is still available and extremely responsive after the fact. He is a great resource and a good friend!

Thanks so much! Rachel & Andrew
