Virginia's Testimonials

A Truly Professional Broker. Virginia has an excellent knowledge of the Portland area market--coupled with an eye for design and market trends, Virginia is strategic in positioning her clients for success. I've seen her expertise shine in both her work and personal life. One of my favorite things about Virginia is her commitment to excellence--her priority with buyers isn't with selling a house--she is committed to finding the ideal fit for a home buyer. When it comes to selling, Virginia knows how to make a house feel more like a home and showing the value in the presentation. I can highly recommend her to anyone who's looking for a truly professional Broker.

She’s a Rockstar!. As a first time home buyer, the entire process can be overwhelming and difficult to navigate. Virginia is a ROCKSTAR that displays a high level of professionalism and warmth in every interaction with her clients. You can tell that she is passionate about helping new homebuyers make well-informed decisions by educating them every step of the way. I feel that Virginia always had my best interests in mind and having that level of trust makes the challenging process of finding the right home effortless. She's the best of the best.
