I highly recommend Michael Palinsky. He is very knowledgeable about Portland real estate. He also is very knowledgeable about the physical structure of houses. He was able to point out parts of a house that were in need of repair. Michael could also tell us if the repair was easy and inexpensive or cumbersome and costly. Michael was also very flexible about getting us in to see houses. He worked around our busy schedule. Once we had our house choices narrowed down he gave us really good and honest feedback about the pros and cons of each house. During the negotiation phase he worked very hard to get us into the house we decided on. He kept us informed of where we were in the process with the seller. Once we got the house, he worked closely with the seller to make sure all the items on the inspection list were attended to. We are very happy with our new home. Overall, we found Michael Palinsky to be helpful, knowledgeable and professional. We would highly recommend him to anyone interested in buying or selling a property.
