Sold a home in 2011.

Barbara was very helpful in both purchasing of our new house and selling our old one. She was very patient yet helpful with our open and undisciplined search for a new home and went out of her way to work with our requirements. Her extensive experience proved invaluable, she knows the process, the system, the players and recommended reputable people (contractors, inspectors, etc). Not only that, she was able to sell our home in a difficult market and assisted with last minute closing details while we were out of the country. We would use her again in the future and recommend her to anyone who is looking for a good realtor.

Philip & Hilary, I am so glad I could help you with the sale of your townhome and the purchase of your beautiful new home. You were both such a joy to work with because you were so responsive and proactive both in your sale and purchase. It makes my job a breeze!

Sold a home in 2012.

Barbara is a gem in the real estate market. She sets up the houses to look like model homes. She has open houses. She is an expert at knowing the ins and outs of this business and will do a fantastic job for you. I would use her again in a heartbeat. She sold 2 of my homes.

Bought a home in 2012.

Barbara was very knowledgeable about the area and the process. She was responsive and helpful throughout the process and got us into the house to take measurements twice between underwriting and closing.

Bought a home in 2011.

Mike and Barbra helped my husband and I buy a house in December and they did a spectacular job. As first time home buyers, we were nervous about the experience, made more so by the fact that we were not traditional buyers.

Mike really seemed to understand what we were looking for and required out of a place, and he hit the nail on the head. We ended up putting an offer in on the first place we saw. He was great; he was knowledgeable about the houses, as well as the process. To top it off, he was a ton of fun! It was enjoyable to look at houses with him and talk with him.

Barbra was involved in helping us put in an offer, her years of experience were noticeable here and I feel that we truly got the best deal possible with her help.

They both did an excellent job of informing us of what our job as buyers was, as well as what we could expect from the other agents. They made our home buying experience a wonderful, relaxing, and fun one. I kept waiting for the 'hard part' but it never came with these guys!

They also were very upfront about potential problems. We were interested in a townhouse, and they used their knowledge to ensure we ended up with a house that wasn't likely to have any common pitfalls.

Overall, I completely recommend Mike and Barbra. My only regret is that we cant use them again for another house!

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $150K in Hillsboro, OR.

We're so happy and lucky to have found Barbara Nelson who made us feel very important. Our positive experience with her is above what we expected. She really knows how to take care for her clients, especially first time home buyers like us. She's very helpful, caring, knowledgeable, professional, and prompt in answering all our questions. She was there for us from the time we were house searching until the closing process of our home sweet home. Still she checks up on us to make sure everything is going well. We HIGHLY recommend her excellent real estate services.

Thanks for ALL your help Barbara! You're the best!

Barbara Nelson is a five-star agent. She is pleasant to work with, knowledgeable, sees a need and initiates the process, answers calls, emails and texts promptly and attends closing. We highly recommend Barbara who made our experience a stress-free one.

Bought a home in 2011.

Barbara was very attentive to us and the process of buying our home. She provided recommendations on what to do next in the process and oversaw and was present for every step. We were from out of the area and couldn't have completed the 30 day purchase without her help.

Barbara appeared very knowledgeable of the current local real estate market and and grasped on to what we were looking for and was able to assist in finding the right place for us.

Bought a home in 2011.

My husband I are first-time home buyers, and we're so glad we found Barbara! She is a pleasure to work with: very patient and helpful, committed to finding just the right home for her clients no matter how long it takes, and extremely knowledgeable about the area, home values and construction issues. She grew up in the Portland area and has been a realtor here for many years. She is also knowledgeable about construction and the costs and feasibility of home repairs and improvements.

When the right house came on the market, Barbara helped us move quickly to secure it and negotiate a great price (she's a sweet person, but a tough negotiator!). She emailed us the listing the morning it appeared, showed us the house at noon, and helped us write an offer that evening! She guided us easily through the entire negotiation and inspection process, and we closed quickly and smoothly. We are in love with our new house, and can't recommend Barbara highly enough!
