Real Estate Testimonials

Brian went above and beyond in helping us get our first home in this crazy market. He patiently guided us through and explained the entire process, and made sure we always made informed decisions. He is highly knowledgeable, experienced, trustworthy, and kind. Brian and Amanda are wonderful to work with, and they will be our go-to for real estate services.

Brian Porter is in my opinion one of the finest real estate agents in Portland. His support was invaluable during my home buying process as I sold one home and bought another. He is highly intelligent, flexible, hardworking, detail oriented, empathetic, experienced, conscientious and extremely knowledgeable. He guided me throughout the process in a highly supportive way.

This is one of many examples. As I was getting ready to make a successful offer for a home in Overlook, my partner found another listing that day that looked “too good to be true.” As timing was critical, Brian volunteered out of the blue to do a showing that same evening. His reasoning was “I don’t want you to regret your decision.” The home was in fact too good to be true and we both agreed it was unacceptable given my goals and objectives.

Brian worked closely with my loan agent. His communication was always timely, and I never felt in limbo at any point in the buying, negotiation and closing process. He will guide you on making a fair and competitive offer- not one that is inflated to simply increase the chances of a sale.

What also stands out is that Brian gives you no sense that he “wants a sale.” He is professional and objective and gives insightful advice – allowing the buyer to make the best decision. He will advise you if he feels the home may not be a good match.

One final example. On the day I got the house keys and assumed full ownership, I was running about 15 minutes late. I called Brian an hour before we were to meet to let him know I would be late. He was already at the property! When I asked him why- he said he didn’t want to be late.

With all of this, Brian is also a very successful, respected agent with a solid reputation among his peers.- Lowell G.

Brian and Amanda work together as a team to market and sell your home as if your home was the only important work that mattered to them. Their attention to detail and covering all the loose ends results in a smooth process that leaves little chance for the usual inevitable surprises that can creep up to derail the sale.

Brian Porter was very accomodating, and had good follow thru. He was willing to put 100% effort and that was very good for me.

In all my years of working on real estate deals, for both personal and business purposes, I would have to categorize Brian as being both the most professional and easiest to work with realtor I have encountered. He consistently demonstrated excellent knowledge of the investment neighborhoods we were looking at, and exhibited outstanding follow through. What was most gratifying is that this continued after the closing, to doing a variety of things I would classify as 'above and beyond' in helping me coordinate property management and repairs. Since I live in another state, this was incredibly helpful and reduced a lot of the stress associated with this type of transaction. I would recommend him without reservations.

As a first time home buyer, I can't recommend Brian enough! He was extremely patient and helpful, answering all our questions and always looking out for our best interests. His get-it-done-right attitude was evident in every step of the process, and he was always an advocate for us. If you're looking for a Portland realtor who will be a champion for you, I highly recommend Brian Porter.- A Google User

Brian Porter goes beyond what you would expect from a Realtor, not only providing answers to all your questions, preparing you for each step in the process, and giving you a team of competent people who work on your behalf; but by also bestowing sincerely friendly words of wisdom, stress therapy, and hand holding--just when you really need it. He consistently gives you his time, checking in often, keeping you updated on all matters, promptly returning all of your calls, and talking you through all your concerns until he is certain that your mind is again (at least for the time being) at ease. Brian sold my condo during a downturn in the real estate market while I was living in another state. He was able to make me feel that everything was being managed with the highest standard. Here, finally, is a service provider who does not create extra stress and work for you, but actually makes buying or selling your home a relatively easy process. I recommend him highly.Annelise B.

Brian, A quick note to thank you for all the support during the purchase in Portland. It was very comforting knowing you were there seeing the project through from start to finish as buying a place from overseas is never easy. Your communication was excellent and follow through outstanding. As you know I run a major brand throughout Asia, I count on people every day to make things happen, so I know when a job is well done. If there is anything I can do to help you in the future please let me know. I would be happy to act as a reference. Best, MDD- Mark D.

13th property I have bought, 4 with a Realtor, and this was an excellent experience.

Brian and Amanda were really great.

They told us what they thought they could sell our house for and they did exactly that.

Brian kept us informed every step of the process.

Highly recommend Brian and his team!

We will definitely use them in the future.

Brian was a joy to work with. His knowledge of vendors assisted us in getting repairs done quickly. We live outside of Portland so he saved us time by letting the workers into our unit to make the necessary repairs and get our unit on the market.

His professionalism and experience helped us understand the Portland real estate market. He shared his marketing plan and walked us through the selling process. He staged the unit and had a professional photographer take incredible pictures. Whenever someone visited our unit he shared their feedback and their overall impression of the unit. We trusted his instincts and recommendations, which eventually led us to selling our unit. He guided us through the negotiation process and as a result, we presented a successful counter offer that the buyer accepted! The process went so smoothly that we were able to close early! Thanks to Brian we sold our unit after a short time on the market. Thank you Brian!

Brian Porter was instrumental in helping me understand the current real estate market trends and thoughtfully, but not invasively, advised me throughout the process. I believe that it is solely due to his expertise in the field, his supreme negotiation skills and talent, knowledge of the diverse areas of the city, and outstanding communication skills, that we were able to purchase the property we wanted even in the currently very competitive seller's market. I would highly recommend Brian and his team for selling or buying personal or investment properties!
- Lilia D.
I highly recommend Brian as your realtor. He was very professional and helped me throughout all aspects of the sale of our duplex just recently. Brian was very attentive and a great communicator throughout the entire process. His many years of experience as a realtor have really equipped him to understand the entire process of closing on the sale of a property.
