Always There To Chat
Claire was wonderful. So patient, knowledgeable and responsive through the whole process. The ‘hand holding’ that she provided through my sale (after being a long time owner) was a perk I didn’t know I needed. She was always upbeat and willing to chat about concerns and offers. Highly recommended.
Upbeat & Understanding
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.
Claire Paris and her whole team are incredibly good at what they do. They are quick to respond to even the smallest concern and go above and beyond to be there through the whole process of buying a home. They got us into listings on our time schedule and even helped us on holidays. We were new home buyers and they broke everything down for us to understand the process and recommended an amazing mortgage broker to help us with the financial part. We could not recommend her and her team enough. Without them we would not be in this beautiful home.
Best Real Estate Agent
If you think buying or selling a home is challenging or you just don’t want the headache….Call Claire immediately. She is absolutely the best real estate agent that I have had the pleasure of working with. She successfully sold my rental property for full ask after negotiating the maze of repair requests, inspections, tenants, etc. And I did not have to do a thing…except sign the papers. Seamless and painless….through the whole process. Claire is on top of everything and makes your life easier.
Dedicated and Professional
We would not own our house without the dedication and professionalism of Claire Paris. She was calm during chaos and was responsive and knowledgeable every step of the way. Going in, we thought hiring a realtor was a formality in the age of online listings. After going through the process, I wouldn’t dream of buying or selling a house without relying on the expertise of Claire Paris. I would recommend her and the Paris Group to anyone!
Strong Negotiation Skills
Excellent market knowledge and execution in helping us purchase three rental properties, including two single family homes; and all with very friendly service. Strong advice on negotiations on pricing and terms. A pleasure to work with and highly recommended.
Michael was proactive on nights and weekends. While highly efficient, not once did he push us in a direction that didn’t feel right. His Rolodex on home inspection was instructive and his savvy negotiation saved us a considerable amount of money. Throughout a challenging close he dispensed with any roadblocks employing an easy, reassuring way. Go the extra mile? Michael is Portland real estate’s version of an elite, ultra-marathoner. When a 100 would earn a “job well done,” he delivers a 150.
From start to finish Claire and her team were there to help and to make this normally stressful process a breeze. We closed on our house today and toured the house less than a month ago. Claire has also offered to help with any questions post sale regarding ownership and anything else. I cannot recommend her and her team enough.
Handled Both Sides
Heather was the listing agent when I saw an open house and price reduction on Zillow that fit my parameters. She handled both sides of the sale/purchase like the professional she is. The seller got the quick sale they wanted, and I got the speedy purchase I wanted without a single glitche along the way.
Paris Group helped us find a rental property and sell that same rental property when we had to move out of town. Claire was very knowledgeable about construction information and she is great at helping resolve issues.
High Level of Expertise
Claire did a great job in helping us find a property. She has a high level of expertise especially in the market today. We were very happy working with her. She had a huge network available to us for many types of services needed after our sale was complete. I would recommend her.
My First Home!
Claire is really wonderful and was instrumental to the purchase of my first home. I am grateful to her and her team for taking care of all kinds of important details that I was simply not equipped to address on my own. She is very compassionate, clever, funny and knowledgeable, and demonstrates confidence and integrity on which you can rely. Claire really made the process of buying a home far less stressful and challenging than I thought possible!
Michael is a thoughtful, dedicated and knowledgeable real estate professional. I not only recommend him but I couldn’t imagine buying a home without his sage counsel. We brought Michael complication after complication and he was able to guide us through and into our ideal home. He is a skilled negotiator who has his feet planted firmly on the ground but isn’t afraid to stick his head in the clouds with you. Highest recommendation and gratitude for Michael Toews.
Referral from agent
Our friend who used to work in real estate directed us to Claire, saying she was THE agent he would recommend. Claire was absolutely wonderful to work with. Knowledgeable, quick to respond, willing to go anywhere we wanted to look, and really expertly guided us through the whole process as first-time home buyers.
Would Refer Claire!
My husband and I have worked with Claire on many projects. Recently, I referred her to my cousin, who was selling her triplex. Not only is Claire a genius working with homes, she can do it all. An added plus is that she is a very pleasant and fun person to work with.
While I am not a fan of online reviews (they tend to lean toward great or terrible), Claire is definitely worth a solid recommendation. In addition to all of the things you would expect from your realtor, she also has a solid knowledge of the contractor and repair side of things and will help size up issues and put you in touch with good contractors. This is invaluable stuff if you’re looking to buy an older home.
My husband and I hired Claire to help us sell our first home, and then purchase a new home. Claire gave us great advice and was terrific to work with. In particular, we think Claire was an excellent agent for us because 1) she was skilled in talking us through complex negotiations and showing us perspectives we hadn’t considered, and 2) she was great in helping the two of us come to consensus when we disagreed. Our first experience purchasing a home was difficult, and we learned things this time around that we wish we had known before. Our huge thanks to Claire!
My First Home!
This was my first home and Claire held my hand through the whole process, I could ask her anything! She is so busy and still made me feel like I was her only client. I will recommend her to anyone I know looking for a realtor!
Claire was incredible! She was so helpful and guided us throughout the entire process. We had a few hitches in our financing and Claire was patient and continued to work with us through the situation. In the end, because of Claire, her keen eye for a great homes and her knowledge and patience, we are living in a home we absolutely love. I recommend Claire 100%!
Great Deal of Knowledge
My husband and I were more than satisfied with our experience with Claire of Paris Group Realty. We immediately trusted Claire as she demonstrated a great deal of knowledge from her years of experience. She listened to our wants and needs and in the end we were rewarded with the PERFECT home. Thank you Claire!! You’re awesome!
Patient & Funny
Claire worked with me for a year to find a house! She is funny, patient, and there is no pushiness you’d expect for a broker/realtor. She is an honest, and all around great person.
Universe gave me Michael
I moved to Portland to open a new business and I had six weeks to find an affordable, wonderful home. As a first time home buyer, it seemed an impossible task, but the Universe gave me Michael and Michael got me a house (in four weeks!). I don’t know if it would have happened without him. He was genuinely patient and I appreciated that quality the most. When the house wasn’t right, we moved along. There was no pressure to make compromises. He was on my team. My goals were his goals and we worked together to make the right choice. His communication was crystal clear. He walked me through the process with precision and speed. He was always on time! He was kind and thoughtful in his approach and so thorough! He showed up on closing day with a handmade “Welcome Home” sign, a bottle of champagne, and food for the fish in the koi pond! A few weeks after we closed, he came by to fix the fireplace insert! He brought me all the way home and I’m so grateful for his service and commitment to his profession. He is a true gem.
Very Successful Transactions
Buying and selling your home is an emotional experience. Claire was supportive throughout the process, and helped me feel less crazy by providing rational recommendations and advice. She is very level-headed and calm which is important in high stress situations. In the sale of my first home, and purchase of my second home, she did a great job handling my emotions and conducting very successful transactions. Love her!
Honest & Encouraging
We were apprehensive to enter into this real estate market, with multiple offers going well over the list price. Claire was honest about what to expect, and encouraging at the same time. We thought it would take at least six months to find our new home. However, we found something very quickly and she supported us through the entire process. The level of support and responsiveness from Claire and her team was beyond our expectations. We’d definitely use her again.
Thanks to Claire, the outstanding staff at Paris Group Realty, and their trusted group of contractors, buying our ideal home was a breeze. Everything from our initial search to submitting an offer to negotiating a closing price was handled to the highest of professional standards. We instantly knew we were in good hands with Paris Group Realty, their value cannot be overstated. We loved our experience!
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)
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.
Our first meeting we got coffee and Claire listened to me talk for half an hour about all my concerns, fears, wants, and considerations. I felt truly heard and taken care of every step of the way. I can’t express how grateful we are to have found her and what a joy she made the whole process. Anyone seeking to buy a home will not regret having Claire in their corner.
Got the house we wanted!
My husband and I were first time home buyers and really didn’t know how to find a realtor, but we both feel very lucky to have met and worked with Michael to buy a home. He is personable, dedicated, and knowledgeable. He was available every step of the way to help us, and guided us through the process with tremendous patience. He was especially helpful in the negotiation process. Following his advice helped us get the house we wanted. We couldn’t be happier to have had a chance to work with Michael and we highly recommend him.
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 in the future home. She is certainly the most capable realtor I’ve come across and I am forever grateful she helped us find our way to our new home.
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!
