Claire and her team are an absolute dream to work with! They took the time to get to know us, and were able to set up lots of viewings with barely any notice. Claire’s expertise, in-depth knowledge, patience, easy-going nature, and sense of humor were indispensable in helping us purchase our first home. Claire and her team continue to be incredible by helping us find honest and fair contractors for renovations. When one contractor, who we found on our own, came in and told us we would need a 20K job for our foundation, Claire calmly reassured us and provided us with another company to give us a second opinion. Thankfully there aren’t any major issues with our foundation, and Claire ultimately saved us $20,000! She’s lovely in every way and we can’t recommend her enough!
strong negotiating skills
Working with Claire was easy, and fun! She is a total professional, knows the market perfectly, and had tremendous patience with us and our challenging schedules. She was prompt in returning all calls and emails, and sharing with us any paperwork. Her strong negotiating skills landed us a great price for our old home, and into the home of our dreams. We couldn’t have done better in all aspects of the sale and purchase of our new home. Thanks Claire!
Michael was extremely helpful and knowledgeable and ensured we saw a good variety of homes from different neighborhoods and in different price ranges before we made our decision. Once we decided to make an offer, he was right there with us throughout the process and beyond. Highly recommended!
A true partnership
Michael was great to work with! Treated our time together as a true partnership where we both learned from each other. We looked at A LOT of houses, and Michael learned what I was looking for until Bam! we found the one!
Claire helped us through a nightmarish buying process on a short sale that was not up to code. She was great at navigating the process of dealing with the city, the seller, and the tenants (as it was a rental property). Recently she helped us sell the property.
Our first home
My family bought our first home with Claire as our realtor. She made what should have been a stressful endeavor into something fun and interesting. She answered all of our questions and educated me on many aspects of home buying so I could make an informed decision- even researching old property rules as my garage, built in 1947, straddles the line. Anything she did not know she promptly learned about it and communicated with me. She was extremely patient and I believe she was more interested in getting us into the right home as opposed to making a sale. I have already recommended her to one friend and one co-worker, people I see every day.
My family worked with Claire as first time home buyers and she really knocked it out of the park. After first dealing with another broker, we found Claire and Paris Group Realty. She took the time to walk us through the buying process, as well as helping us in our search for remodeling solutions, first timer questions, etc. She was always INCREDIBLY patient with our seemingly stupid emails and made us feel comfortable with the biggest purchase of our lives. Recommended without reservation!
Claire Paris helped us but our dream home and went above and beyond every step of the way – whether it was answering our novice questions to calling contractors for us. She is the realtor who cares and her track record proves it.
Knowledgeable on a small budget
Claire at Paris Realty is great! My husband and I were buying our first house, and she took the time to answer our questions. Claire is fun and knowledgeable, and even though we had a small budget she always made time for us. We have referred her to several friends who needed a broker, and everyone has had the same experience. I would recommend her without reservation
First Time Home Buyer
Claire is simply the best person to shepherd me into home ownership that I could have asked for. She has knowledge of the region and experience in spades, which make her an extraordinarily trustworthy resource for the search, the negotiations, the inspections, closing, and beyond. Claire was responsive at every step: she assuaged every fear, was generous with her time and regional knowledge, listened to and honored my concerns, dealt with unexpected surprises and a variety of personalities in the most professional and prompt manner. Claire has an uncanny ability to balance a listening ear and the practical needs of the home purchase process – she always knew exactly when to step in and say, “Hey, I hear ya, but my experience has shown me that actually our best next step will be X”. I simply cannot recommend Claire highly enough. If I ever decide to sell, she’ll be my first call!
Michael is truly AMAZING!! He went above and beyond throughout every phase of the home buying process. He has great instincts, was never pushy or made us feel rushed, was always available and responsive by phone or email, was super patient and professional, had a positive attitude and overall was just really an incredible pleasure to work with and have on our side. He has a deep understanding of the Portland market and really “got us” after the very first time we met and discussed our timeline and what we were looking for in our home search. He’s well-connected and we were so happy with everyone he recommended and connected us to (loan officer, home inspector, and more). Michael truly cared about us and because of that, he helped us find the perfect home. Honestly we just can’t say enough good things about Michael. We are SO glad we found him!
Professional & Amazing
Michael is AMAZING, and his working style is PROFESSIONAL. He helped us with the process of purchasing a house in SE Portland.
How AMAZING he is? We “incidentally” know Michael after we “accidentally” made a few clicks on Zillow. He contacted us, and our purchasing story had begun. Our first impression of Michael is that he is very enthusiastic. We could feel he is trustful and responsible after talking with him on the phone. None of the other real estate agents that we know give us the feeling like this. Michael is unique by his quick scheduling tour to look at the houses that we want. We remember that we emailed Michael at around 9-10 pm, saying that we want to look at 4 houses, and in the next morning around 11 am he was at the first house with all information about these houses printed out for us. We much appreciate his time helping us to make the tour to the houses.
How PROFESSIONAL he is? He possesses a high technology skill that makes all our paper works e-signed. This is very convenient and saved us a lot of time. He possesses the strong negotiating skill to help us make an offer and negotiate for repair with sellers. Besides, he is very useful in helping us contact a home inspector and helping us get a good bid for repair. We love Michael, and we love his working style.
My experience with Micheal is 100% positive. He took the time to talk through all the steps the home buying process, as well as the current realities of the Portland market. He provided ideas on neighborhoods that might fit my wants/needs, within my budget. I had a million questions, and was amazed with Michaels patience, and knowledge.
Most importantly, I always felt Michael was being honest about what he thought about each property, was always available and helpful. I felt that he truly had my best interests at heart. I highly recommend him to anyone. I am so grateful for all the help he gave me.
Trustworthy and knowledgeable
Claire was extremely hands on but not pushy. She let us dictate when we wanted to look at houses and didn’t hound us or pressure us. Claire works with very competent agents ( inspectors, lenders, repair and maintenance, title, etc.) who are both trustworthy and knowledgeable on the purchase. Also, I can’t speak for others, but basically Claire negotiated for all the issues the inspector pointed out as problems to be fixed or paid for by the owner, and the owner paid or fixed almost everything before we purchased our home. She also fun to go house shopping with. I would (and have) recommend Claire to anyone.
The team at Paris Group made the whole process so comfortable and nice. They are a great help and highly recommended. Thank you!
