You guys are wonderful. Because of you, the home buying process was quick, easy to understand, and you were great to work with. If not for you guys, I probably would not be a homeowner. Thanks for all of you help. E. Moaning
This is our family’s fifth real estate transaction with Realtor Richard and Jean. Planning for our financial future and retirement indicated we would benefit from owning a duplex. The duplex market is a very interesting and sometimes confusing market; it was great to have Richard’s guidance to navigate that whole process. His background as a businessman and former Certified Public Accountant has well prepared him to be an outstanding realtor for investors. He provided worksheets on cash flow, return on investment, balance sheet and showed us clearly that investing in a rental property was an excellent financial decision for us. We did most of our searching on line; it’s easy when Richard shows you how to analyze the numbers. We found a property which produced a positive cash flow and shortly after we bought it. And, as an added bonus, we have had fantastic savings on our income taxes! Richard’s negotiations and attention to detail were outstanding. I appreciated Richard?s diligence and professionalism. Four years after buying the duplex we have had a zero percent vacancy rate. Richard is my Realtor for Life; I will definitely use the services of Legacy Realty Co.com for all my future real estate transactions

Eleven years ago we were newlyweds thinking about buying our first home. A trusted advisor recommended Richard and Jean Hogan. They led through the bewildering process of finding our first home, helping us understand what to look for, what to avoid, and how to manage the inevitable feelings of anxiety and disappointment experienced by first time-time home buyers. We could not have been in better hands. They were so helpful in educating us about the market, the financial processes, and all the steps involved. Thanks to them, we found a wonderful home in a great NE Portland neighborhood.
Ten years later, our lives had changed. We now had 2 children and a number of pets. We realized it was time for us to move to our next home. We never considered working with anyone else but the Hogans. Again they were immensely helpful, patient, and knowledgeable in helping us both sell our home and find the next one. They worked very hard for us. As sellers, they helped prepare and show off our property. As buyers, they researched the market. They drove great distances to walk through houses with us. They were always available by phone, email, of even a personal visit when we had questions.
Once again, we could not have been happier with the end result. The sale of our home went extremely well. With the Hogan’s, help, we found the perfect home for our family in West Linn. We’ve been happy to recommend them to friends and hear them have the same experience. Thank you, Richard and Jean!

Jean and Richard are extended family for 36 years. I knew him back in his CFO days. We’ve had similar backgrounds and career paths. LegacyRealtyCo.com is simply the best residential realtor in town. They are totally prepared with a marketing plan and proceed to get great results. In my view, the keys to their success would be their network, market knowledge and extreme work ethic. His construction background gives him a huge advantage in identifying problems and how that will affect the marketing and the price. Jean’s decorating and staging skill are not surpassed. They have handled ten transactions for my family with complete success. We cannot recommend them strongly enough. You will not be sorry to have them on your team.
We´ve known Richard and Jean for years in the neighborhood. When it became time for us to upgrade our housing to a nicer home we considered hiring several realtors we know, including some we’ve known from high school. We are so glad we chose Legacy Realty to represent us. They made it easy to buy the home we chose. When we decided to move to the Sisters area there was no doubt we would hire Richard and Jean to market our property. They planned all the details of how and when we would go live on the market and Jean helped us stage it to make it attractive to potential buyers and so we wouldn´t waste money on some unimportant detail. We had over 75 realtors attend the opening Brokers Tour and we received multiple offers within the first few days. They worked hard to complete the sale. A few years later we wanted to buy a Salem historic home, so we called on them again. They are gems to work with and very kind and caring. If you want to get the best deal, call them. Gary and Lora
When we decided to move to the Columbia River and buy a houseboat we had to sell our house in Alameda. Our daughter and son-in-law had such good experience with their friends who own Legacy Realty, Richard and Jean Hogan, we did not even waste time interviewing other realtors for the job. Their internet advertising and photography was outstanding; we received a solid offer with the price, terms and conditions we wanted. We have bought and sold many homes, they were the best realtors we have dealt with. As a physician, I can tell you it’s great working with skilled professionals who really care. Gordon and Marzenda
We have worked with Realtor Richard Hogan on multiple occasions as have other members of our extended family. The first home we sold was unique with lots of features only a particular buyer would appreciate. After the perfect buyer entered contract with us, they had some particular challenges and nearly bailed out. Without Richard’s high level of negotiation and transaction management skills, we might still be sitting on that house.
Our second selling experience with the Hogans was very similar. It was a high-end home, but in the midst of the most severe economic downturn in generations, it was hard to obtain financing and jumbo buyers were scarce. Aside from the challenging mortgage market, our buyers for whom the home was ideal, had some jitters. They also had a home of their own to sell. While that could have been three strikes against us the buyers moved with urgency thanks largely to input from Richard, to price their home to sell, and be able to close on ours. Again in the end, we all succeeded.
We know this business. We are actually insiders, and we know quality representation when we see it. Without such persistent and meticulous care, both sales could easily have fallen apart. It may go without saying, but simply put, we are BIG fans and refer Richard and Jean with absolute confidence.
Just a quick aside, we were talking with our mutual client, Tina and we asked how her recent closing went and how she liked working with you. She was very satisfied and complementary. She appreciated your negotiating skills and said you just outsmarted the other realtor.

From a sister: I was getting married and moving into my husband´s Pearl District place so I needed to sell my condo with the least aggravation. Legacy Realty had already helped my sister buy her home and my parents sell so they could move into a retirement center. So, even though we know several realtors, our choice was easy-The Hogan Team. We knew it would be difficult in this market. I especially appreciated their knowledge and tremendous negotiation and communication skills. They really went to bat for me in several difficult situations and the transaction closed as Richard and Jean had forecast. I gladly recommend Legacy Realty to anyone.
Richard, we have used your services three times now and on both ends of the transactions. I would not think of using any other real estate broker/company in the Portland and Lake Oswego area. The service you and Jean provide together is simply amazing. I feel like it’s a real challenge today to find business owners that take care of the details themselves and I really appreciate that you and Jean have not delegated your jobs. A client definitely gets more customer satisfaction when you deal with the owner who has a vested interest in keeping the clients happy.

I met Jean and Richard years ago through my Aunt´s business where I worked while I studied for my software career. The fantastic Portland tech field employment opportunities have resulted in my portfolio of several properties including the duplex and the latest family home with room for everybody; four bedrooms and an amazing gourmet kitchen in a great neighborhood and school system in Beaverton. The duplex has had a positive cash flow since year one and the tax advantages are awesome. Jean and Richard were quick to answer text messages and emails when we had questions. Their market knowledge and negotiating skills exceeded our expectations as they professionally guided us through complex and stressful situations including purchase of a short sale and multiple offers. The team does an awesome job.

Jean and Richard were recommended by my mother in law (how could I go wrong?) to help us buy our home. She said they were the best realtors in town, we already knew them to be professional and trustworthy. We called them to show us a couple of listings we had found. They did that right away and we were following up on one of them when Richard called that he’d found another property. It was less money, bigger and better. Fabulous location, yard and view. You can really trust them to have your best interests at heart.

Having known Jean personally and professionally for 37 years. Many of my family and network have trusted LegacyRealtyCo.com with their real estate business; most recently a condo. There are so many steps in this process and the Hogans are very experienced and enjoyable to work with.
Richard and Jean made the sale of our house and the purchase of our new house a great experience. Busy with life, and my law practice, we were anxious about the time commitment of selling our house and searching for a new one. Richard and Jean took care of everything for us. The only thing we had to worry about was packing up the kids and taking a drive when someone wanted to see our house. They are also so personable and made what seemed to be an intimidating experience a good experience. We highly recommend them!
