Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $100K in Powellhurst Gilbert, Portland, OR.
Brian just helped my husband and I buy the perfect house for us. He knew all the ends and outs of short sales and knew what kind of offer was needed to buy the house we wanted. He was always there for us when we called and would meet us anytime. After finding the house of our dreams he let us go in and do the repairs needed to finish the transaction. We also got to do all of our painting before the deal was done, which helped us move in faster. Thanks again Brian for all of your hard work, you are a great guy, caring, honest and professional. I would recommend you to anyone who is looking for a great real estate agent. Also the deal we got WOW.. couldn't have gotten a better one. We love our new house, thanks again, if we ever buy again you will be getting a call from us. Joe & JoAnne Barger
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $225K in Kenton, Portland, OR.
Brian helped me to purchase my first home in July 2012, and I can't recommend him enough! His first priority was finding the perfect home for me. He never pressured me into buying anything; rather, he ever talked me out of a few properties that I expressed interest in, that in retrospect, would have been terrible choices for me. He was always available to talk with at a moment's notice, and he went above and beyond his duties as a realtor in helping me to close early on my home. Furthermore, everyone that he recommends, from inspectors, to contractors, to mortgage brokers, are honest and professional. I can't say enough good things about Brian!
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $475K in Hillside, Portland, OR.
My husband and I are Brian's biggest fans! As a buyers agent he treated each house skeptically, like he was looking at it to buy himself. He was patient, honest and straight-forward, and not shy about sharing both positive and negative opinions about a property. He worked with us to pinpoint our criteria for mining listings, and we received the newest matches every morning. He was available at a moment's notice to view a home. Ultimately, the fact that he was enthusiastic about a house was something that we weighed in our final decision, and we're thrilled with the house we bought.
I met Brian through his website www.brianporter.com, which has a wealth of information about Portland homes. I was looking for an investment property - a condo, but wasn’t sure if the area, building and condo pricing were worth investing in. After reading Brian’s reviews of the area I got clear confirmation about my purchasing direction. After meeting Brian, I got my condo in less than 45 days and have it rented after owning it in less than one week! Brian is extremely knowledgeable about Portland condo purchases, and has a very professional working style. He handles everything with careful consideration, and in a thoughtful manner. He’s always been very responsive to the clients’ need and offers helpful and practical solutions. I would definitely work with Brian again and strongly recommend him to friends and families in future real estate transactions.
Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $175K in Lents, Portland, OR.
Brian gets the job done. He's very knowledgable about all things real estate and it shows as you work with him. Brian Has worked with me on 3 real estate deals. I feel very comfortable knowing that Brian has my interests in mind when he negotiates on my behalf. He knows all the ins and outs and always seems to be on top of each step in the selling and closing process. In addition, he's a real stand up guy. Honest, kind, and well humored.
