Having someone you trust is a must when buying or selling a home. Having someone you'll be good friends with after everything is said and done is a bonus, and that's just what you get when working with Tony. He was consistent, timely, friendly, and extremely helpful with explaining everything that went in to purchasing our first home. I would highly recommend working with him!Kyle B.
Tony and Jake helped me find my forever home. They were always available when I needed them and made sure to include me every step of the way. I have nothing but great things to say about the Realest State team.Jill S.
My wife and I have worked with Jake to purchase 2 homes and sell another and have been incredibly impressed with his professionalism, guidance, patience, knowledge, and ability to explain things in a clear and helpful manner. He goes above and beyond for his clients and is always available to answer a question, provide advice, or alleviate hiccups in the process when things come up.Tim K.
Meet The Team
We believe in the power of personal relationships.
All the touchy feely stuff aside, (I’m not a hippy I swear!) I have spent over 14 years being a real estate agent. In today’s hectic marketplace being someone who has the experience, commitment, and know-how will help you navigate the world of real estate.
The art of orchestrating a transaction is what I enjoy about the profession most. There are also times during the lifecycle of a transaction when it stalls or hits the wall. I have a knack for creating solutions in these situations. Perhaps more importantly, I never let emotions or my ego get in the way.
I also specialize in the creative aspects behind inexpensive transformations that can, in many cases, trigger higher selling prices for listings. I posses a unique ability to manage full scale property renovations and have a good eye for design, placement of furniture, and art.
Graduating from the University of Oregon with honors in English and Creative Writing helps with the contracts: a little “creative writing” never hurts! I was born in Santa Rosa, CA and moved to Oregon at a very young age, but went to high school in Oregon, California and Washington. I did a brief stint in the Bay Area after high school and am now finding that the people I met at house parties in the early 90’s are moving up here now. Go figure!
Outside of work I try to enjoy all that Oregon has to offer: surfing, snowboarding, skating, you name it. I have traveled all over the globe and can honestly say this is my favorite place on earth. I still need to get that snowboarding/Onsen trip to Japan in though. Oh and maybe a sabbatical in New Zealand & Australia. We will see…
Last but not least spending time with my darling daughter Celine is my greatest joy. You may see us biking around PDX or running around near our beach house in Manzanita.
If you are looking to make room to live, give me a call.
