Jaime Arb Haessig

Principal Broker

Knowing the neighborhoods of Portland is what I do. If you are looking to buy, I will help you
find the neighborhood and home that fits your lifestyle and budget perfectly. Throughout your
home-buying process, I will be on my toes working hard for you, walking you through writing a
strong offer, negotiating the best price, plus getting the most out of your inspection and repair
requests.

For those of you looking to sell, I will take you from “thinking about selling” to “sold” with
confidence and grace. I will help prepare your property to look its very best, preview comparable
homes in the area, call other agents with similar listings, and gather feedback from showings to
price your home appropriately. Finally, I will use my strong networking skills to get the word out
beyond the traditional advertising in order to move your home quickly.
Real estate is in my blood. However, becoming a second-generation Realtor was not part of my
plan. Yet, here I am, well over a sixteen years later and going strong! My love of Portland’s
variety in architecture and neighborhoods is what pulled me in to the business, and now it’s the
people – my clients – that keep me here. In addition to my real estate background, I hold a
Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in social work. As I got started in Real Estate, I noticed a nice
cross-over between my counseling background and the process of helping others buy and sell
homes.

I run a referral-based business and know that giving you great service means my business will
continue to prosper. Community participation is also important to me, so each year I take pride in
donating a portion of my income to local non-profits who do amazing work improving greater
Portland.

When not working, you can find me spending time with my husband Paul, my son, friends,
family, and our rescue mutt, Edna. We head into the great outdoors often to enjoy our beautiful
Pacific Northwest forests, lakes, and rivers. We also manage a duplex rental, and an ADU rental
in our own backyard. After over 7 years living in Irvington, Alameda, and Alberta we have lived
in our current Cully neighborhood cottage for over a decade. Having purchased it as an extreme
fixer, we completed a full house remodel, built the ADU at the back of our oversized lot, and
now love sharing this space. My husband and I have purchased and remodeled multiple
properties. We love being homeowners and take pride in seeing our ideas turn into appealing and
highly livable homes.

Reviews:

Angelica, Buyer and Seller 2012-2020

We have bought and sold three properties since 2012 (two rental Multi-family
residences and our own house) with Jaime as our realtor. Most recently we have
sold our two Multi-family residences, in the last two months. I honestly can’t
imagine using anyone else if I ever do any more real estate transactions in the
Portland area. I have worked with about 10 realtors in my life, and she sets the
standard. Jaime is extremely knowledgeable, responsive, and is not afraid to give
advice even if it’s not what you want to hear. I always knew she had our best
interests forefront in her mind. I absolutely and unequivocally recommend using
Jaime for your realty needs, whether you are buying or selling. Thanks for all your
help over the last 8 years, Jaime!

Al, Buyer 2021
Honest, transparent and trustworthy! Very responsive and a hard worker. Great
partner to be on your side. Jaime is a skilled negotiator and very courteous.

Isaac, Seller 2021
Working with Jaime was truly a blessing. I was going into my first sale with 0
knowledge of what to expect and everything was a little overwhelming for me at the
start. Jaime helped me with everything from explaining the sellers contract,
contracting painters, carpet cleaners, and just finalizing all the prep that goes into
the sale. I trusted her 100% of the time. She is very detail and time oriented which
made selling my home so easy! I don’t know how else I can express my gratitude to
her. She has been wonderful to work with.

Becca, Buyer 2020
Jaime is hands-down THE BEST. As a first time home buyer, I felt very intimidated
by the process of making an educated, thoughtful decision in this crazy-hot, fast-
paced market! Jaime was patient with my learning process and made me feel
empowered every step of the way. Her extensive knowledge of home
construction/trends over the last century was mind-boggling. From the beginning, it
was clear she was far more interested in finding me a great house than simply
making the sale. I appreciated her straightforward and respectful communication
style. Jaime helped me to stay calm and level-headed throughout the process and I
ended up with the perfect home for me. I will, without a moments hesitation,

recommend her to any friend or family member looking to buy or sell in the
Portland area.

Peg, Buyer 2020
We recently purchased a home in Portland with Jaime acting as our agent. Her
knowledge of Portland neighborhoods and the advantages and disadvantages of
each is amazing. Her experience in the process of home construction and
renovation was an invaluable asset in helping us evaluate homes. Her
communication skills and honesty made the interactions and questions during the
evaluations and negotiations straightforward and simple. Jaime is incredibly
professional and competent in all aspects of the home-buying process. I would
recommend her without reservation to my best friends and family who are buying
property in Portland.

Kiley, 2021

As a first time home buyer, I was nervous about the process. Jaime was very
helpful and took a lot of time out to answer questions, explain paperwork and
outline expectations. I would highly recommend her. We found a house we love and
are very happy!

Laura, Buyer
Jaime helped us find our current home in NE Portland and purchase an investment
property in Milwaukie, OR. The home we ended up buying wasn’t what we had
been searching for, but Jaime had a hunch we would like it and she was right! We
fell in love with the neighborhood and the property and wouldn’t have ever
considered it if it weren’t for Jaime. She’s the best!

Mike D, Buyer and Seller
I first met Jaime in the dog park when I moved to town, not surprising as I now
know she loves dogs and being all around Portland. Several weeks later I
discovered she was a real estate agent. She is very down to earth and a hard
worker. Since I met her she has helped me with two real estate transactions, and I
couldn’t have a higher recommendation for anyone in the market for a
knowledgeable hard working agent. Jaime is a great communicator, patient, and
works with you and on your behalf to find the perfect place for a great price. She
also does some heavy lifting looking at houses on her own before she takes you out
to look at places…minimizing the exhaustion effect; for a buyer looking at multiple
houses for the right fit. Jaime does a lot of research on comparable houses and
makes great suggestions as to offer price and/or the selling price depending on
what stage you are at. Both of my real estate transactions with Jaime took minimum
time with no issues at closing…and she even had great recommendations for me
with landscaping professionals and house cleaners. If you are thinking of buying or
selling a home, you would be hard pressed to find a better advocate for you that
will get the job done.
