Natalie's Testimonials

Highly recommend Natalie!. Wow, where to start! Natalie was our agent for the purchase of our dream home/land and sale during a tricky Covid market. She brings personality and professionalism to every interaction, comes prepared, offers guidance, and navigates contract negotiations with confidence. We are seasoned buyers  and highly recommend Natalie as a partner in real estate transactions!

Keri & Justin

A Zillion Stars!. I cannot recommend Natalie highly enough. She's incredibly knowledgeable, professional, easy to get ahold of, willing to chat or advise about anything at any time, and incredibly kind and generous to her clients but tough with the other party when needed. Natalie was 100% there with us every step of the way during what turned into a rather stressful home sale. Ultimately we walked away with the sale price we were hoping for and a new friend in Natalie. Highly recommend!

Jen & Greg

Natalie is a Miracle. “The whole world is a series of miracles...”  Natalie Strom and Living Room Realty are one of those miracles that have happened in my life.  I want to thank Natalie for showing me that even during challenging times, life is full of possibilities when surrounded by caring, trustworthy people who advocate for you as if you were a part of their family.


Natalie Knocked it Out of the Park. "Our first meeting with Natalie was a basic icebreaker where she took some notes on what we were looking for. She knocked it out of the park by showing us our now condo on the first day of touring SE Portland. Natalie was an invaluable guide through purchasing our first home. She was constantly  available by phone and led us through the more stressful parts with ease. I highly recommend her, especially for first time homebuyers."

Ryan & Abe

We Never Felt Pressured by Natalie. "Working with Natalie was wonderful. She consistently went the extra mile, as both a buyer's and seller's agent for us, and we never felt pressured into any decisions we didn't all agree on. I'd recommend her without hesitation."

Natalie goes above and beyond to sell your home!. When we started the process of selling our home, we knew that it was going to be a marathon and not a sprint. Natalie provided us with her knowledge and confidence that our house would sell relatively quick even in the Fall slow down. She supported us through the low of having our initial offer back out due to some foundation issues related to a 1906 house. She was honest, hard-working, and willing to answer any and every question we had or research resolutions to any problem that arose. She was easy to get a hold of and would text with updates regularly and would respond to our texts quickly, even during her busy weekends of open houses. She had excellent marketing strategies to help keep up the interest in our home and was always ready with a new plan of action is something didn’t work out. Through the entirety of the sale, she was a delight to work with and always impressed with her ideas, enthusiasm, and creativity. We would recommend anyone else to help buy or sell a home after our experience! Thank you, Natalie!

Sean & Amanda

Natalie invested in knowing our family.

“When we started our journey to buying a home we were overwhelmed and uneducated about the entire process. I reached out to many avenues and Natalie was the first and only REALTOR® who wasn’t pushy, knew we weren’t ready to buy right away and still took the time to answer our questions and help us find a path that lead to our new home! She came to our home, introduced us to so many new ideas about home buying and really invested in knowing our family. Every house we looked at she was able to help us see potentials and pitfalls. We didn’t know where to turn in the beginning and now that we have settled into our forever home with our children, we couldn’t imagine having done it with anyone else. From the bottom of our hearts, we thank Natalie!”


Natalie explains the entire process from start to finish.

“I truly appreciated working with Natalie when selling my house in Portland. She made herself available at all times, was very helpful in explaining the entire process from start to finish, and had practical advice on how I could maximize my potential profits. At the end of the day, my house sold for over the asking price in the shortest possible time frame. I would recommend her services to anyone!”


Natalie is highly competent.

“We recently had occasion to need advice and help from Natalie Strom in a couple of real estate transactions. In both instances, Natalie was able to help us by giving advice, finding out legal implications before we made a misstep. If she didn't have the answers, she went to work to find them for us. She is highly competent, industrious, patient, understanding and always keeps in mind her clients' needs, desires and issues. We would recommend her highly to anyone looking for a loyal and dedicated representative of their real estate needs.”


Natalie Strom stands out as one of the best!.

“I have dealt with many REALTORS® in my life, and Natalie Strom stands out as one of the best. After selling my house in California, my family and I wanted to invest in a house on Oregon's coast and we asked Natalie to assist us with finding a suitable home. She immediately linked us in to a website that sent notifications about coastal properties for sale, that matched our criteria. This allowed us to select several candidates and she then arranged a day for us to view the houses. When I went into the negotiating phase, Natalie was right there with advice. She set up home inspections, and kept us informed at every turn of the process, resulting in a successful purchase of our selected house. It has been a pleasure working with Natalie - she is very bright, attentive to details, hard working and energetic. She excels in communication and goes the extra mile to find out about issues, reporting back promptly. She really works for you! Natalie's assistance with buying this house has been outstanding, and I look back on the experience with great satisfaction, due to her excellent services.”

Anne Mieke

Natalie Strom is a wonderful advocate!.

“I really enjoyed working with Natalie in the sale of my home in Portland! She went the extra mile to help me understand my options and the process and make sure I had the support and information I needed to go through the process. I found her to be honest, hard working, and a wonderful advocate as she represented me. Plus she provided me some really quality referrals for various things I needed done on my house when preparing to get it on the market. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell their home in the Portland area!”
