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.

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.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $325K in Damascus, OR.
Richard has been working with my husband and me for over 2 years! It took us a very long time to pick the right home and he was very patient and helpful with our many questions and request for showings. He was extremely knowledgeable about the entire process and helped us in every step of the way.

I have always felt confident in his recommendations when it came to making an offer, he knows the market well and is realistic, he will not just tell you the numbers you want to hear, he will tell you what actually needs to happen both in your selling prices and offering prices.

We are now happily settled into our new home in our dream location! We ended up renting our townhouse out using the advice we got from Richard and will be using Richard’s services when we decide to sell our rental home.

He has an excellent network of professionals he can recommend to you in the mortgage, insurance and inspection industries that we tapped into and were extremely happy with. He is the full package!

I honestly do not think we would have the wonderful home we live in now if it was not for Richard’s help and prompt attention to our requests and needs!

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $150K in Forest Grove, OR.
Richard Canifax is very professional , we were referred to Richard by a friend who he helped buy a house, we met and he got all the information what we were looking for! and in no time we were getting listings from him. We would look at the house and things just didn't fit us and he would just say the right one is out there we will keep looking. Richard didn't try to sway us one way or the other, he just said our house is out there we'll keep looking. Then he found one that he thought we would like sure enough we looked at the house and fell in love with it. Because it was a short sale he warned us it could be a long process. Six months later we were sitting in escrow. Richard is very knowledgeable with short sales and kept us informed . when any information came in he let us know , If you need someone who is willing to go the distance then Richard is your man. We are very happy buyer's.

Sold a Single Family home in 2010 in Hazelwood, Portland, OR.
My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Richard in 2010 when we were looking for our first home. He was recommended to us by a co-worked, and I am grateful to her still and give his name out to everyone I can. He was so patient, we probably looked at 15 houses or more, before settling on the one we bought. We actually once managed to look at 5 houses in one evening, without anyone complaining, or rushing us. We felt like he was giving us good advice, without any prejudice and that our interests were looked after. He was (and still is) always very responsive and promt with the paperwork, offers, counter offers, explanations and whatever else we asked for. He is the only one we'll ever go to for our next property transactions. I also worked with Richard in my line of work in later years through referrals, where he was acting as a seller agent. Same glowing reviews: always on top of things, honest, respectful and couteous. Highly recommended.
