"Education is for improving the lives of others and leaving your community and world better than you found it." -Marian Wright Edelman
Having spent years in education, it seemed only natural to transition into a career of helping others in their quest to learn and grow in the world of real estate. I have had a lifetime of experience observing; my mother as a principal broker, and my father, as a contractor. They've taught me many of the complexities of buying, selling and building real property.
I've also personally bought and sold real estate, rented property and purchased and leased commercial property. I've learned many of the hard won lessons you can only obtain with personal experience. And now I can pass those on to my clients.
Real estate is my new passion and I'm excited about giving my clients the information, advice and help you seek from a Realtor. I'm dedicated to working with clients and providing them with the knowledge of how real estate can defray your taxes, leverage your hard-earned money, and provide you a comfortable home.
Heather is fantastic! We couldn't have gotten the house we have without her expertise. She's extremely professional and friendly, truly the best in her field.

Heather Paris commanded an impressive level of integrity and knowledge in her role as our real estate agent. She worked with us remotely for months before we moved to Oregon, coaching us through some tough decisions, and was always direct and honest when we needed it. She is extremely knowledgeable of the Portland area, and takes very seriously the 'good fit' of the property to the buyer family. In a word: she cares... she cares about the family, the relationships and their happiness [...]

Heather is far and away the best realtor i have worked with. She is very knowledgeable about: 1- The market (pricing, crime, general ambiance, demand etc) 2- Construction (what is and isn't important when looking at a purchase). 3- Referrals (she hooked us up with the best inspection team). 4- Research - she pointed us to some great websites to research neighborhood, crime rates, zoning, water quality etc. Heather isn't a pushy sales [...]
Heather was an absolute rock for me during a period of time when we, as a family, were trying to decide whether to upgrade to a new home. Heather was there during all of our back and forth trying to decide whether to move to a new home (and likely out of our beloved neighborhood) or remodel our current home to fit our needs. Heather was so patient with while we explored the options on the market and toured multiple homes. In the end, we decided to remodel. Heather was there for me during [...]
This is the great broker I used here in Portland. Stumbled across her through the seller at an open house, but she did a most professional job as a dual agent. The circumstances of my condo unit here were unique and the mirror image of my condo sale in Marin, so I was comfortable doing some of my own due diligence plus hiring a great building inspector and an attorney to review the contract and provide some sage advice. Was careful as nowhere near as many disclosure requirements here in OR [...]
Heather was with us every step of the way. She was extremely knowledgeable about the neighborhood because she lives a few blocks away! We cannot have had anyone better in this stressful process. We plan to use Heather again in a few years when we sell our home and move to assisted living!

I cannot think of a single thing Heather could have done to have improved our experience as we went through the process that started with negotiating through a bidding war, that continued with finding a highly qualified home inspector and dealing with an unrealistic appraisal well below the market value established by the multiple bids, and concluded with a successful closing that delivered the perfect home.
Heather is extremely helpful, responsive, patient and effective. She has great advice, and works to make sure that her clients and their families are well taken care of regardless of how it affects her pay out. She even encouraged us to be patient and wait for a better priced home rather than pushing us to over spend on a hot market. She is simply the best. I would recommend her to any of my friends or family members.
Heather has lots of experience, knows Portland in and out, and responds quickly to emails, texts, and phone calls. She's patient, organized, upbeat, and understanding. Buying a house in Portland isn't always easy, but when you're working with Heather, you have a huge advantage.
One reason I chose Heather was because of all her rave reviews. Now I know why she has nothing but great things said about her. Heather was with me every step of the way, holding my hand when I needed her to; explaining the process as many times as necessary, until I fully understood. When it came to the important decisions to make on my own though, I felt empowered to make the judgement calls. Heather put together an amazing team of people to make it all happen, in the necessary [...]
