I’m Ella Gray, a Portland transplant by way of New York City, Los Angeles, and Nashville. I’m very lucky to finally throw down some roots in this quirky, intelligent, beautiful city of Portland, and I LOVE to help PDX newbies, transplants, and life-long residents find their place in the perfect Portland neighborhood.

When I’m not touring houses or prepping listings, I’m chasing my toddler in the Southwest trails and pursuing PDX stories & excitement in all five corners of the city.

Ella's Testimonials

I’ve known Ella for ten years. When I reconnected with her after losing touch and found out that she had become a real estate agent I thought, “how perfect!” She is steadfast, remarkably prepared and knowledgable, buttoned down to a T, professional, warm, funny, and most of all just downright easy to work with. If she doesn’t know the answer, she’ll tell you and get back to you immediately. But chances are, she’ll know. This woman does her homework. Ours was a difficult deal to navigate thanks to a divorce and not the best communication between my spouse and I. But every step of the way, Ella was there with her wonderful bedside manner and her attention to the tiniest detail. She made me feel like I didn’t just have a dependable agent, but a good friend. When it’s time to leave my bachelor pad for the next house, you know who I’ll be calling. Thanks Ella!”

Paul, SW Hillsdale

As a first time home buyer, Ella was incredibly informative and responsive to all my concerns. I always felt comfortable to reach out with all my questions as I was clueless in navigating the home buying process. She was always mindful of what my needs/wants were and every house she showed me certainly met my criteria. I highly recommend her even if you're just starting out because Ella's highly organized systems gets you on track to owning your new home!

Jon, SW Portland

Ella helped us find our home is Portland and she is amazing. She's is the type of person who will go the extra mile (or more if possible) to help you along the way. She is new to Portland and the real estate world but has very knowledgeable people to support her and will work hard to find answers quickly to things she doesn't know. She will even find out things outside of her job just to make sure you have all the answers to feel good about your house buying! I highly recommend working with Ella - she will make you feel like you're her only client because of how attentive she is!

Emma,  SW Hillsdale

Ella was an exceptional realtor!. She was able to find a lot of options for us to walk through and when we found the house we wanted, she really stepped up to negotiating plate and vouched for our interests. We ended up with our forever home for a price that could not be beat! I am very grateful for Ella’s dedication and hard work to make sure that we got the best deal possible in one of the toughest buyers markets in the country.

Cole, SW Hillsdale

As a first time home buyer in Portland’s tough housing market I could not have found a better realtor than Ella. She was easily available, never pushed me to make a decision I was not comfortable with, and worked hard to find me the perfect house. What really stood out about Ella though was the work she put in after my offer was accepted. She was excellent about helping me negotiate for certain repairs and did a great job of answering questions anytime I had any. She made my life so much easier communicating with all the parties involved and in the end I was able to get a beautiful home in a great neighborhood. This was the most important financial transaction I've made and having Ella in my corner made all of the difference.

Rolando, SE Montavilla

Ella is professional, personable, proactive and prompt. In my experience she is quick to understand her client's needs and time frame, and then works efficiently and seemingly effortlessly to bring the transaction to a close. And even after closing Ella can remain a resource for information and  recommendations. I would without hesitation recommend Ella for a Portland real estate sale or purchase and I'll go to her again for my next transaction.

Mitch, NW Nob Hill

Ella is fantastic. She has a calm, fun, and personable style that sets a perfect tone for the whole process. She was incredibly patient with our all-over-the-place house searching style. I appreciated being able to take the time to see a variety of houses and not feeling rushed to make a decision. Once we decided on a house, she did a great job communicating with the listing agent, and putting together an offer that took into account more than just the listing price. She was beyond organized and thorough with scheduling inspections/re-inspections/various addendums. She managed to orchestrate a fast, and on time close, even with a lot of unexpected moving parts. Ella has a high level of integrity and went above and beyond throughout the whole process.
