Tom CotterPrincipal Broker
We have been here since 1992 and are among the ‘new locals.’ Tom is originally from Rhode Island and arrived in Portland via Santa Fe, New Mexiico. Doug grew up on a farm in Iowa and lived in San Francisco before moving up the West Coast. We were drawn to Portland’s climate, gardens, beauty and arts scene. In our downtime, you may find us wandering around the Japanese Garden or the Portland Art Museum, hiking in the gorge, reading at the beach, or sipping something refreshing in our garden. We love it here!
We have worked as full time Realtors since the very early 2000’s. While most of our clients buy and sell in Portland’s inner city neighborhoods we have worked from Gresham to Hillsboro and Lake Oswego to Scappoose. Everybody has a different idea of what ‘home’ looks like, and we apply our breadth of knowledge to make sure you succeed in achieving your specific real estate goals.
Sellers - we commit to guiding you through this process. Get ready to enjoy a Tom+Doug Production from the first conversation through closing: preparation of your property to maximize its appeal, creation of customized marketing materials, evaluation of any offers and negotiation on your behalf. Throughout the process we minimize your stress by being available and communicating clearly.
Buyers - you have so many resources available to you! We will make sure you are aided by technology, not overwhelmed by it. Our evaluation of homes together will be aided by our knowledge of location and common issues (informed by attending countless inspections!) We listen carefully to what you are hoping for, making sure you purchase a property that truly meets your needs and supports your lifestyle.
Truly, our work together will be driven by your wants and needs. The first step is a conversation. Call us!
