When we decided to move to Portland we wanted to find a local Realtor who would be reliable and whom we could trust to know the local requirements and opportunities. We were pleased to learn that Richard and Jean shared many of the same interests that brought us to Portland. When we combined this with the recommendations we received, we were confident that Legacy Realty would be a good partner for us. We are pretty clear on what we do and don’t like in a home. Additionally, when we were looking the market was pretty volatile so we looked at a lot of properties. Richard and Jean stuck with us and accommodated our concerns. My wife especially enjoyed the occasions when Jean joined us as Richard and I were focused on foundations, roofs, and mechanical rooms. It gave her an better opportunity to talk about paint, layout, changes, and possibilities. Still, in our view, the value of their experience really kicked in once we found the place we wanted and needed to negotiate several issues with the seller. Richard and Jean proved to be patient, thorough, and suitably cautious-exactly as we had hoped. Were convinced that their advice and work helped us avoid some potential problems with the purchase. Bottom line: we closed on time in the house we wanted with no surprises.
