Why Work With Us?
Here's what our satisfied customers are saying about us:
Deanna went the full mile to make our first-time home buying experience run smoothly. She was extremely flexible, responsive and a joy to spend time with. She went above and beyond to connect us with what resources we needed when going through the inspection and purchasing process. We would happily recommend Deanna for anyone looking to purchase in the Portland area.
Robert and Danielle, Buyers, January 2016
When we decided to buy our first house, we didn't know what we needed to do. We went to Deanna to help us out. She answered all of our questions very quickly, and guided us along the way. She helped us draft our offer letter, and gave excellent advice on what to offer. Deanna connected us with other great resources for the mortgage and the inspections. The entire process went smoothly thanks to her. After we closed on the house, she gave us very thoughtful housewarming gifts. If for some reason, we wanted to move to a new house, we'd definitely call on Deanna again.

Deanna made the process of selling my condo as easy as it can get. She offered advice on things to repair, walked me through the mounds of paperwork, and allowed me to do everything from across the country. When real life got in the way and I didn’t have a chance to do some of the repairs she advised, she took care of it for me. She was able to stage my house with the odds and ends pieces of furniture I left behind, produced beautiful photos and had offers in less than a week from when the condo went on the market for more than my asking price. While she left everything to me to decide, her experience and recommendations were valuable resources when determining the selling price, contract terms, and negotiations with the buyer. Deanna made everything so easy and I whole heartedly recommend her to anyone looking for a Realtor to sell their home.

Deanna is terrific to work with! She is attentive, patient, and worked hard to help me find the perfect place. Her professionalism and warmth are unparalleled. I highly recommend her!
Briana, Buyer, October 2016
Deanna helped me sell my downtown condo in the most seamless, professional, and stress-free process I could have hoped for.
She enlisted the services of a fantastic cleaner and photographer. She understood that I could do some of the necessary improvements to the space myself, and could hire a contractor only when needed for the other tasks. She offered helpful advice on which improvements were really necessary (in contrast to those things only I would ever notice), and in the final hours before photos/listing, Dee even contributed some elbow grease, herself.
She knew the market and understood how to create a strategy which not only resulted in multiple offers within days of listing, but also allowed me to understand who my buyers were and how best to work with them, while maintaining absolute professionalism in all our interactions with other agents, buyers, contractors, escrow and title officers. I was in town for part of the process and out of state at other points (including reviewing offers, accepting one, and closing); this was never an issue.
When my sadistic HOA rep delayed our closing slightly, Deanna knew exactly what to do, and the transaction was never jeopardized.
As others have said, regardless of how many clients Deanna has at the time, she can make you feel like you're the only one. If something needs to be done, it will get done. It was also a bonus for me that every person we hired was a woman involved in ethical and social justice activities, and that Deanna donates a portion of her commissions to charity. I would work with her again in a heartbeat -- in fact, I hope to do so soon

Chelsea was amazing! She was instrumental in every step of the process. From driving for countless hours to view homes, to helping coordinate with our lenders, to getting the necessary tests and appraisals, Chelsea was there every step of the way!
Couldn't have asked for a better realtor! Chelsea was so helpful and knowledgeable through the entire process of selling my home. She was always available to answer any questions I had, and had my house sold in a matter of weeks! Very happy with her and would definitely recommend her to others!
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.
