Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $225K in Hillsboro, OR.
My property was a short sale and a very complicated sale, after a long year. Richard was able to sell my property before it went to foreclousure this, October (2013). I can't recommend any one else other than Richard, I witness how frustrating and complicated a short sale processes can be, but for Richard this was like any other sale transaction. Once again in behalf of my family we want to thank you for all your hard work and dedication.

Amazing realtor. Richard made the house buying process a breeze. He was always on top of things, being able to anticipate any potential issues and resolving them quickly and efficiently. He's also very easy going and fun to work with. Highly recommended for all your realtor needs!

Bought a home in 2014.
Richard was invaluable to get our house. We were in a special usda loan. Richard did a great job looking out for my families interests in so many ways. He would research every property we showed interest in and was a great set of extra eyes to point out pluses and minuses . In a class by himself. Will use him on every deal after this .

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $275K in Hillsboro, OR.
We asked Richard to list an investment property for us in February 2014. The tenants previously in residence had left the property in very poor shape, and we needed to sell the property "as is" and with dispatch.

Richard helped us with humor and knowledge to set the price correctly, deal with the multiple small issues involved, and finally locate the exactly right buyer. Richard demonstrated his willingness to help us on multiple occasions, going above & beyond our expectations.

Richard never gave us doubt that he was on our side, always guided us in our decisions and was a rock in times of uncertainty.

Bought a home in 2011.
My husband and I were first time homebuyers back in 2011 and were looking for a knowledgeable agent to guide us through the process. Richard was just exactly what we needed. He was patient, both with us and with the very complicated short sale process. From start to finish, I never doubted that he truly had our best interest in mind. I would encourage anyone who is looking for an agent to contact Richard.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $275K in Damascus, OR.
As a first time home buyer in a new state, Richard was patient, thorough and maintained a high level of integrity through some very challenging situations. The home buying process in the last couple of years has been highly aggressive and a bit of a circus. He was always "ready to jump in" whether it was in the early morning hours or on a weekend. I would highly recommended him to any one!

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $250K in Centennial, Portland, OR.
Seeing a teaser ad for a local short sale and a colleague betting against me that I couldn't do it prompted me toward the real estate market back in 2010. It was my time to buy and the market was right.

I contacted a mortgage guy and after pre-approval was referred to Richard by Chris. Richard was very helpful in helping me find a home that would suit my needs, and though I wouldn't say I'm picky, I definitely look for specific elements in a home.

Richard took the time to show me every place I wanted to see, and had the knowledge to steer me away from potential nightmares luring me in with shine.

His process is impeccably professional and well thought out, he was patient with my busy schedule. You can tell he genuinely cares.

Where I was REALLY impressed was in his negotiating skills, the company selling my home was asking an inflated price for a home they put too much money into. There was a magic number in my head I thought they would end up taking to get the home off their books and onto the next project. He never wasted ANY time screwing around and in the end I purchased at the magic number - I am confident this deal would have died had Richard not been the negotiator.

I went to see a home with my father and a Realtor he picked. Home was garbage, Realtor has no information or interest in the home, and recommended classless bad deal finance options to a guy who could purchase outright if he REALLY wanted to.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $450K in Hillsboro, OR.
I found Richard Canifax's website online, when my husband and I were planning a move to the Portland area. We weren't planning on purchasing a house for about 6-9 months, but Richard was there for us every step of the way. His website was the most informative and easy to use. When I contacted Richard the first time, I was treated as a friend he had known forever. We started this process in September of 2012 and purchased a home finally in June 2013. Richard set up our search criteria for exactly what we were looking for, we looked at plenty. If I found a house I liked, he was there the next day or even that evening to take us to see it. It didn't matter what hour or day it was, he was always available to us. We found the house we liked, he made sure we saw it prior to the open house and made our offer on it with a contingency that the offer had to be accepted prior to the open house (genius!) The offer was accepted and we have our new house, all thanks to Richard. If you are looking for a great realtor for the Oregon/Washington area, you won't go wrong with Richard Canifax. He is a great person and will represent you well and you will make a friend in the process.
