We sell all types of residential real estate in Portland. If you are looking for a portland condo, townhouse, single family home in Portland, we have got you covered.  Brian Porter has been a Realtor in Portland for 10 years, so he has the experience to help you make a wise purchase.

We also sell Beaverton Real Estate, Lake Oswego Real Estate and homes in Gresham, Milwaukie and other suburbs. Or if you need help selling your property we are listing experts!  We are currently experiencing a "seller's market".  This means that sellers have the upper hand.  Inventory is low and prices in many areas are close to their all time highs.  Things aren't so bad for buyers, interest rates are still close to historic lows, so affordability is still pretty good.


On our portland real estate blog, we have graphs and data to keep you informed about this rapidly changing market, and we cover topics like, financing a condo in litigation.

When you are looking for a Portland REALTOR® , keep in mind that you want to work with a team that has experience and knows the neighborhood. We have sold 100s of properties over the years. We have lived throughout the Portland metro area and are familiar with the various neighborhoods of this dynamic city.

When you look for a real estate company to sell your home, look for one that has a strong internet presence.  You may have found this website by doing a search for "Portland Condos" or "Portland Duplex"  but our company JMA Properties is even stronger on search terms like "Portland Real Estate", so we have a direct contact with potential buyers.

We are equally happy to work with buyers or sellers of Real Estate in the metro area. When we list a property for a client, we follow a 20 step program that gives the property excellent exposure, and we advise the client with regard to market price and marketing strategy.

We sell Portland Condos, Townhouses, and Single-Family Homes

 When we work with buyers, we get to the know their wants and needs, and then make it our personal quest to find them a home that will work within their budget. We are here to listen and advise, not to boss our clients around. Buyers need to know how much they can afford, so feel free to use our mortgage calculator to determine how much your monthly payment would be?  We would love to help you find a Portland Condo, Single Family Home, Townhouse or Duplex.

We are highly qualified to help you. Our entire team has had personal experience with investment properties. Please allow us to share our experience with you.

And by the way, feel free to call us after hours or on the weekends. We look forward to hearing from you, and we will do our best to answer your real estate questions.  

Portland Realtor, Brian Porter

Hello Brian, You may remember us. You were our agent when we purchased a condo at North Park Lofts several years ago. We are thinking about selling and wanted to speak with you.

I am likely relocating to Portland from San Francisco within the next two years. Could be sooner, could be later. I am looking for something less than $125,000. Maybe a short sale. I have seen some two bed short sales for this amount or less. Any ideas or advice? How should I approach this? I own a condo in SF now valued at $425,000, owe $212,000. Thanks. Terence

Is the Benson Towers near the Esplanade and the Strand condos? I was down in that area today and liked it. What would a 1 or 2 bedroom go for? Same question applies for the Meriwether West. Thanks

Which condos have HOAs that allow all breeds of dogs with good manners?

Brian Porter said:

Hi Sue, This is a great question. I wish I had a good answer for you, but I don't. Some condos will exclude certain breeds and other condos will put a weight limit on the pets allowed. I have never seen a list of condos that will allow all breeds; I have only been able to get this information on a case by case basis.
