Aryne + Dulcinea's Testimonials

.

Aryne and Dulcinea both possess the necessary cadre of skills a potential buyer and seller need. No question was unanswered and every uncertainty was addressed by them and their deep team of seasoned professionals. I highly recommend these two and look forward to working with them again.

Joanna A + Beth G

. I have long dreamt of owning my own home but it always felt like a long-distant, dreamy hope; something that might happen when I could win the lottery…After just a few short and incredibly revealing meetings with Aryne and Dulcinea I found out just how possible it was.  And in a few short months I moved in to my first home.

Ariel L

.

We bought a new home and sold our old home with Aryne and Dulcinea at our side. They were very professional and astute to business issues. We felt all transactions were well executed. More than that, we truly enjoyed working with them. They are warm, caring people who care about their clients and their community.

SUZANNE G + BRIAN B

. We weren't sure what the process of buying our first home together would be like. We were ready for big challenges, confusion, and uncertainty. Instead what we experienced was Dulcinea's warmth, enthusiasm, and constant availability. Dulcinea immediately charmed us by asking all the right questions about what we wanted in our forever home. She knew what was most important to us and reminded us of it as we visited houses. She gave us a sense of calm and order during a stressful experience, and when we needed an advocate, she made everything happen behind the scenes. However, we always felt in the loop. At the heart of the process was really good, consistent communication. We needed to know everything, and that was what we got. She answered every question no matter how small or how late, gave us great feedback and guidance on our offers, and made sure we got what we wanted. Throughout it all, Dulcinea was just as thrilled about us finding our house as we were. And in the end, we got our dream home. We can't stop referring our friends to Aryne and Dulcinea, and we are so grateful they were the ones we asked to help us find our perfect place.

Chris N + Julia G

. We recently had a wonderful experience working with Aryne and Dulcinea to sell one house and buy another. We interviewed several different realtors and companies and chose Living Room and Aryne and Dulcinea because of their professionalism, warmth, and familiarity with our part of town. Dulcinea had our house staged beautifully and sold it in a weekend for far above asking price. She also helped us get into the house that we wanted, in spite of some tricky shenanigans on the part of the seller's agent. She really partnered with us to see both transactions through, and we felt incredibly supported by her. Aryne was there to help in the moments that Dulcinea had to be offline. Because of their partnership, we never had a moment where we were left unaware or unsupported in our transactions.  Dulcinea and Aryne helped make a very stressful time for our family fun and much easier than it could have been. If we ever decide to move again, they will be our first call.

KC & Russ E.

.

I had a great experience working with Dulcinea, she helped me buy a house during a stressful time and she was always positive about everything. Her follow up client care is exceptional!

Eric D.

.

We worked with Aryne mostly when buying our home and she was FABULOUS. She sent us a lot of houses to consider, and would reply promptly when we wanted to look at them. She took care of all of the little details that we wouldn't have thought of, and was able to help us find a house in Portland with our small budget! We loved how knowledgeable, kind and ready to help she was, and we feel like we can still reach out to ask her questions. When Aryne was out of the office, Dulcinea was equally as kind and responsive. Should we ever decide to sell our house to upgrade, we will call them first!

Rachel B.

.

Aryne and Dulcinea have been incredible to work with. We have purchased a house, a condo and sold a piece of land with their help, and would definitely use them for future purchases and sales as well. As a tag-team they make scheduling meetings and site visits super easy, and they are very willing to listen and discuss random crazy ideas we come up with. They offer great advice and are also fun to hang out with!

Lucas G.

I could not be more satisfied with my selling and buying experience with this dynamite team!. I had a very unique home that needed a lot of work and I also had a lot on my plate at the time, but they knew just when to push and just when to back off. I worked mostly with Dulcinea who was my absolute cheerleader–I had unfailing access to her encouragement around the clock; Aryne brought so much intelligence and back up the to the process as well–they are complementary duo! Working together, the house went through a complete transformation and the open house was a sensation: I had SIX offers in less than a week. I had a time crunch to find my next home, and Dulcinea was amazing, asking all the right questions and letting me lead her into uncharted territory. With her guidance, I ended up with the the most darling home that my family and I adore. I would recommend this stellar team to anyone. I especially appreciated the space that they held for my emotions during the whole process; I felt really cared for in their hands. Real estate can be scary and they made it into a positive experience…that’s powerful stuff.

Leah P.

Today I’m writing this from the kitchen of my dream home. A house so amazing that I still pinch myself practically every day to be sure it’s real. It is everything I could wish for and more — and I am so grateful to Dulcinea and Aryne for helping me make it happen. Dulcinea does real estate like she does everything else – with integrity, creativity, and grace. If you are buying or selling a home (or both), you cannot go wrong with these ladies.
