Amber TurnerPrincipal Broker
Whether you are coming to me as a first-time buyer or an experienced home owner, my goal is to make this process both low stress and a little fun. I’m equipped with the tools and attitude to best help you embark – and pleasantly complete – this important life transition. I will be your fiercest advocate, learning what is most important to you about your end goal: buying or selling your home. Over the years, I have gained a deep appreciation for the importance of each client’s story, how it shaped them and brought them my way for advice. If you’re interested in exploring Portland’s wide array neighborhoods and architectural options together, please call me for an interview.
You are ready for a change. No matter how ready you might be, letting go of your current home may come with some challenges. I enjoy helping to make these challenges easier for you. My job is to help you understand your options for pricing and prepping your house for the most advantageous sale. I can tell you the average current market time for your area and what we need to do for a quick sale – or how long it might take to sell it at a price that meets all your needs. If you are wondering if selling now is right for you, call me and let’s talk.

– I like momentum, movement and progress. I’m a great real estate broker because you won’t often find me sitting still. When I’m on the job, I’m taking action for my clients – seeking out the perfect home, advocating on your behalf, responding quickly, and negotiating with conviction.
– I work with a limited number of clients at one time. This allows me to provide top quality service with focused attention to my client’s needs.
– My home is a 1960's contemporary in the Cully Neighborhood. A few of my personal pursuits include distance cycling, Bikram yoga, theater, gardening, and road trips around Oregon. I am second-generation Portland Native!

Thank you so much for all your help over the past 12 months. You did so much more than I ever expected and made a daunting transition back to land a fun and exciting one. I will never forget the day you gathered up my house viewing requests and then slipped in an additional one you had just heard about. It seemed perfect as soon as I saw it and continues to feel like the perfect little house for us. You really do have a remarkable talent for understanding people’s wishes and finding the perfect match. I feel so lucky to have met you.
Many, many thanks,
Hobson & Larissa Lane
Dear Amber -
We are almost out the door here and I wanted to stop long enough to let you know how much your letter to us was appreciated. It is confidence-inspiring to know that the real estate world has “green committed” agents, who also care so much about their clients.
I want you to know that your advocacy of Marita & Brian was significant in our decision to accept their offer. You told us things they couldn’t have gracefully told us themselves and it helped give us a true picture of their hopes and dreams. They are fortunate to have you standing behind them.
I wish you the very best in all your endeavors -
Thank you SO much for helping us find our perfect home! It was such a joy to work with you, and I hope we see you around town sometime!
Thank you for the wonderful basket of gifts, we appreciate your thoughtfulness :)

To potential clients:
I worked with Amber on both a house sale and purchase. The house I sold in Portland brought in 23 offers, all over list price. Amber organized the offers into a nice spreadsheet that really simplified the daunting process of making a choice. The house purchase was a cabin at the base of Mt Hood. It required a considerable amount of due diligence. Amber was able to organize the inspections and survey crew in a timely manner and provided excellent communication throughout both transactions.
We are happy with how things turned out + we very much appreciate all the time and effort you all put into “getting to yes” (so to speak). We love our little Gilly house + hope to never need you again (this is our forever house) but we wish you many happy + prosperous years! Thank you very very much!

Thank you so much for your help in finding us our first home! We always felt in good hands with you. We’re still remodeling the house but once we’ve moved in, we’ll find a couch to put the wool throw on that you gave us - thank you!
