Why Work With Us?
Here's what our satisfied customers are saying about us:
Chelsea Lewis was an extremely proactive real estate agent for us. From the first moment we got in contact with Chelsea she was quick to identify houses, condos, and townhouses that might be a good fit for us.
My wife and I both work full-time so we were incredibly happy with Chelsea's flexibility and ability to accommodate our schedules to see houses. We would see a house post at 1:00pm and she was willing and able to meet us at 6pm that night!
Chelsea was also very informative regarding the home buying process. This was our first purchase so there was a lot to learn! She was transparent when she did not know an answer and was resourceful in reaching out to her colleagues to quickly answer us. Chelsea was by our side as we learned over the past year what we were looking for, what we could afford and how to make our offer the most attractive.
Chelsea was on our side throughout the entire process. At times we took break and asked her to only share houses if they were very special and she respected our space. Then, when we wanted to look more seriously, she was at the ready.
My wife and I both thoroughly enjoyed working with Chelsea and will forever be grateful for her support, consideration and patience!

We were so fortunate to have found Chelsea Lewis when we decided to purchase a new home. We wanted to stay in our same neighborhood and were worried because it had become significantly more desirable since we purchased our last home nine years ago. As our Realtor, she helped us find the right house just two blocks from our current house for a great price.She was always on our side working to make our house purchase as simple and successful as possible. Her advice when writing our offer allowed us to be selected out of 9 other offers. And, in a world where having to write multiple offers is the rule, rather than the exception, we were thrilled to get our house with just one offer. Then, once we entered escrow, she worked tirelessly to help us close as quickly as possible. We couldn’t be happier with our new house and the entire family is so grateful for Chelsea’s exceptional service and skills. We would recommend her to anyone.
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.
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 time frame, and truly went above and beyond in many big and small ways; from the very beginning to the very end (and beyond). I am so grateful I landed in Heather's experienced arms for this first time journey of mine.
Claire Paris and her team are amazing! She helped us buy our first little Portland home in 2014. When it came time to sell our little nest and buy a new house for our growing family, she was the only person we wanted for the job.
She sold and helped us buy a new house in different cities. If you need to reach her for anything, she is there! Questions, she is there! Negotiations, she is the one for the job. Claire is hands down the best real estate agent we have ever worked with. She is the only one we will ever recommend to our friends and family."
My wife and I had one weekend to find a home which would be contingent on the sale of our house that was out of state, which already had a buyer. After FaceTiming with her at some of the properties we flew up there to see more homes in person. That weekend, our "game plan" was to find a home by the end of the weekend. When we met Claire she was much taller than I expected. Very welcoming personality with a contagious laugh.
We had our list of properties given by Claire. Some we saw with her and some we saw on our own. 30 homes later we chose the very last house we saw. Claire and her team closed the house in about 30 days! The process was smooth and seamless. Communication was very important between us and all of the players and was never an issue. After the purchase, Claire even lined us up with one of her past clients who was interested in some of our old appliances for his own home that was purchased with Claire's help. She even gave us recommendations for an accountant for the coming tax season.
I highly recommend Paris Group Realty to anyone looking for a home here in the area. I can say with confidence that my wife and I will not hesitate to work with her again when we decide to purchase our next property.
As first time home buyers, picking an agent was the first hard task. From the beginning, we really like her. She was extremely positive, yet very professional and factual, helping us understanding the many steps in this long process. She obviously has a deep knowledge of the Portland market. She was able to refer us to lenders, inspectors, appraisers, surveyors. We closed pretty much on time, with no major hiccups in the process. She's very responsive, either via phone, SMS or email. I highly recommend her!
A few months ago, my wife and I decided it was time to seriously start shopping for a house in Portland. Claire was a top buyer’s agent in PDX according to Zillow, and had great reviews. After meeting with her — the chemistry just felt right between the three of us. We decided to work exclusively with her. During the shopping process, Claire was very friendly, easy going, and her hands off approach complemented our shopping style & personalities well (i.e. she was not pushy or forceful about her opinions, or which houses we should see). She had many sales and purchases in the areas we were interested in. She was very familiar with the market, and had already visited some of the places that were on our radar. She’s part of a family based business with a long and interesting history in both real estate and construction. She was punctual arriving at showings, and communicative with insights during walk throughs. Her experiences helped us identify problems, and roughly estimate resolution and remodeling costs during showings which should always be considered as part of the purchase price. Once we found a house we liked, she aggressively pursued closing the deal, and was a consistent and reliable partner. She brought in an inspector who was very through, and created an insightful 30 page report. She has a great supporting team to follow up on emails, paperwork and contractor estimates. She has numerous contractor referrals and connections in the industry that helped us get quotes in a very busy Portland market where contractors can be hard to get a hold of. We are very lucky to have found Claire, and highly recommend her!!
Claire Paris was awesome. She knew what we were looking for and she found us a home in 3 days. We would highly recommend her and her knowledgeable team for anyone buying a home in Portland.

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.
