Ross Seligman moved to Portland in 1999 after accidentally discovering this oasis of a city in a nationwide desert of strip malls and sprawl.
Ross likes to call Portland the “land of opportunity.” Why, you ask? Where else can you be a successful real estate broker while simultaneously leading a double life as a musician? That would definitely be a bizarre combination in New Jersey but, in Portland, quite ordinary. In Portland, one expects that their straight-laced accountant is secretly oil painting between Yoga classes.
From the moment he arrived in Portland, Ross quickly fell in love with the vibrant energy of the people, gorgeous homes and neighborhoods, and exploding arts scene. Deciding to embrace it all, Ross became an active real estate broker and quickly immersed himself in the city culture. Working with premier Portland boutique company Living Room Realty, Ross is well known for his accessibility, integrity, professionalism, knowledge of the market, and passion for Portland.
When he is not busy representing clients or studying market trends, you can find Ross playing music around the city, hiking and camping in the unparalleled beauty of the Pacific NW, and spending as much time with friends and family as possible. Ross Seligman also appeared on Broadway at the Lyceum Theater in NYC as Janis Joplin’s guitarist in “A Night With Janis Joplin”.

I interviewed 10 local Portland realtors before choosing Ross.
I was looking for competence, knowledge, insight, competitive spirit and outstanding communications skills. It was a very emotional process to let go and trust a realtor to sell our inner SE home of 25 years. Ross Seligman deserves more than 5 stars. He truly cared and more importantly SHOWED UP to make the deal work for us. I recommend highly. I did a lot of research and feel very satisfied with my choice. It was a win-win for all involved.
Congrats! You just found your realtor. Seriously.
You may as well just stop your search now because it doesn't get any better than Ross and his team at Living Room Realty.
Recently, my wife & I decided to sell our condo and set up a meeting with Ross.
Ross responded to our request almost immediately and met with us to discuss our questions and concerns.
When we met with Ross, he listened to us explain our situation, understood what we were looking for, and helped us identify the best timeline to sell our place.
We left that meeting feeling so solid and informed about what we were supposed to do next.
As a person, Ross is amazing. He's super friendly, smart, and on top of things.
As a realtor, he has a deep understanding of the Portland real estate market and is a sharp negotiator. You'd be hard pressed to find someone so willing to go to bat for you and help you through the intricate process of selling your home.
After leaving our first meeting with Ross, I keep thinking to myself...
"I trust this guy. He's going to get the job done."
And did he?
We followed all of Ross's precise and clear steps to get our place ready for listing.
Within 10 days after listing, we accepted a cash offer on our condo. All during a so-called "cool" market.
Not only will Ross (and his stellar assistant Kate) help you expertly price and market your property, they'll be a true ally for you when it comes down to complex negotiations. They were there for us morning, noon, and night, guiding us through the nerve-racking inspection process, offer negotiations, and title and closing procedures.
If selling your home seems like a stressful undertaking for you, you can rest easy knowing Ross and his team have your back.
I wasn't kidding when I said you've just found your Realtor. Call and schedule a time to chat with Ross and see for yourself. I know when we're ready to buy or sell again, Ross will be the first person I call.

My husband and I purchased our first home with the help of Ross. The home buying experience was an emotional ride, and Ross did an excellent job preparing us for the journey! He took every effort to make sure we understood any steps that were needed, which was very important to help calm our nerves throughout the process.
Since this was our first home purchase, we were hoping to find someone that understood that this was a new experience, and someone who was very patient with handling Portland's housing market. Ross not only was patient with us and the market, but he proved to us that he has the experience in Portland to guide us away from trouble – and we love what we bought!
I am very thankful that this purchase was made with his help. It is always important to us that the big things in life are shared with people that are lovely and true to their word, and we are proud to have added Ross to this list. He made excellent recommendations, and was quick to respond when we needed answers – he never left us hanging. Working with Ross was a great experience that I would recommend to anyone that is hoping for a friendly, fair, and all around thorough house buying experience. He is genuinely an awesome person.

Ross was amazing. Selling and purchasing a home can be incredibly stressful, but it really didn't feel that way with Ross. He took care of everything we needed and was an amazing communicator. Ross advertised our home so well, it sold in less than a week for more than the asking price. We would recommend Ross to anyone looking to sell or buy a home.
It was wonderful working with Ross. As first-time home buyers, we were somewhat nervous about the complicated nature of the home buying process, but Ross put us right at ease. He walked us through the whole process and was always available to answer questions and to track down the right person to make sure everything was on track and running smoothly, from putting together an offer with very little time to spare, to checking on the appraisal and the signing appointment with the Title company. He went above and beyond to help us feel comfortable and his recommendations on offer price and conditions were spot on. Ross turned buying a home into an exciting, rather than frightening, process. I highly recommend him, and if we sell our place down the road, he will be the first one I call!

Simply put, Ross is the real estate agent equivalent of the “EASY” button on Staples commercials!. From start to finish, Ross guided my wife and me through our home buying process, which for us was our first home purchase so we naturally had a million and one questions. He made things simple and he flat out knows his stuff. We could not have had a better experience than we did with Ross and we'd recommend him to anyone looking to buy their first (or any) home!
