Woe to the Realtor whose clients are busy working — three different times this week I’ve been unable to get a client into a property soon enough to take a look before it is sold out from under us. This market is incredibly fast paced and prices are going so far above asking that I and other agents are shaking our heads about wondering when it will stop. But we all kind of agree that it isn’t going to for the foreseeable future — the secret of Portland being one of the nicest places in the US to live is out!! With usually mild winters (admittedly the winter of 2016/2017 was a little crazy), beautiful summers, tons of nature, and a city that is human scaled, Portland is awesome. But if you want a piece of the action, better call us quickly — it’s getting nuts out there!
Just got here? Awed by how this amazing city has all the good things that make bigger cities like New York, Chicago, Philadelphia awesome, while not having the bad things that come with those places such as high murder rates, traffic gridlock, and horrible weather? Love the whole “Keep Portland Weird” vibe? That’s how I felt when I first saw this awesome city, and my husband and I immediately started making plans to move. I know what it is like to be a newcomer here — thrilling — and I can help you navigate the various neighborhoods of Portland to help you find the perfect one for your lifestyle and budget.
Portland has so much neighborhood pride — there are dozens of neighborhood associations. The boundaries between neighborhoods are sometimes in a little bit of dispute, with two areas claiming the same turf, but in general we’ve tried to divide the site up so you can find your way around. Hope this helps you and that you too become a Portlander.
