Movin’ and shakin’…

Do you need to buy? Do you need to sell? Is moving in your future? Then let’s talk. Chad Brackett is licensed in Oregon, Washington, and California.

Chad’s career has afforded him the opportunity to live in 12 different states across the United States while buying and selling more than 12 homes and investment properties, including, most recently, in the Piedmont neighborhood of Portland. Originally from a suburb of Atlanta, Georgia, Chad most recently moved to Portland after spending the past couple of years in the San Francisco Bay Area where he worked for Alain Pinel Realtors.

While Chad is relatively new to Portland, he is a Northwestern at heart: “I love everything about Portland. The people, the topography and climate, it is the best place I have live. From the mountains to the coast, there is just so much for my family to do.” Chad has quickly assimilated to the area based on his prior moving experiences. He understands firsthand the challenges with not only buying and selling homes but with moving and relocating. His previous experiences will be an invaluable resource to you throughout your real estate transaction. Chad is committed to quality, integrity, professionalism and excellent service when you enlist his services.

Prior to beginning his real estate career, Chad had a successful 30-year retail career in sales and operational support for divisions of large organizations like L’Oreal and Limited Brands amongst others. Chad is extremely detail oriented and will utilize his strategic planning, analysis and innovative approach to ensure that you are completely informed throughout the real estate transaction and achieve your desired goals. He has provided support, training and leadership to thousands of employees and has been responsible for hundreds of millions in annual sales volume. If a commitment to service and being the #1 priority is important to you, then contact Chad.
