“We were brand new to the Portland area, and Greg really made it easy to navigate all of the different neighborhoods. His knowledge about what the Portland area has to offer is extensive. He was very attentive, and helped us better figure out what we were looking for without being pushy. He was available any time we needed him. Once we found our home, he went above and beyond to make sure the process was as smooth as possible. He really seems to surround himself with great people (inspectors, title companies, etc.). We’ve recommended him to several other people and will continue to do so, without reservation. Greg will make sure you are happy from beginning to end.”

“It was our pleasure to have had the opportunity to work with Greg in the purchase of our first home. Being first time buyers, we were naive to the entire process but Greg patiently and accurately shared his knowledge with us as we went along. There were two key moments when Greg impressed us most and we learned Realtors do much more than walk through houses with people. When our first offer wasn’t accepted and our hopes were crushed, Greg cautioned us not to get carried away and prevented us from paying more for a house than it was worth. When the time came for us look at what would become our house, Greg’s professionalism really showed. He came by and previewed the house before we walked through (warning us to see beyond the mess), he made himself familiar with the background of the listing and made some strategic moves that were the difference in our offer being the one that was accepted – all of this while he was supposed to be celebrating his birthday! When all was said and done, we felt we had not only scored a great house at a great price, but had a new friend. We literally wouldn’t be where we are today without Greg’s help and we couldn’t be happier in our new home, new community and new era in our life. Whenever the opportunity arises, we unconditionally recommend Greg.”

“Greg did an outstanding job assisting us in the purchase of a home in the Overlook neighborhood. He had a solid grasp of comps in the neighborhood, and did a great job of communicating what was going on during the complete process of buying our home. Greg was also very diligent about making sure that all inspections and soil and sewer tests were conducted and done in a timely manner. We would choose to use Greg again for our real estate needs and would definitely recommend him to friends and family members.”
“Greg was an outstanding agent. As a first-time home buyer, he thoroughly explained the process to me each step of the way. He was extraordinarily patient with me when looking for the perfect home. During viewings, he helpfully pointed out issues about the houses that concerned him, but he did not apply pressure to make a sale in any way. I wholeheartedly recommend him as an agent, both to first-time home-buyers as well as to seasoned home owners.”
“Was extremely helpful and patient in helping me find the perfect home. He went beyond to get me quotes and helpful advice while in the purchasing process. And once the home was mine he continues to keep contact and always available to help out in any way. I would highly recommend Greg, very honest and always available to help in any way.”
