Portland’s King Neighborhood serves as a prime example of the complicated social history that permeates Oregon. Once a designated district for redlining, professional organizations would penalize realtors for selling homes to African-Americans outside of the district.

Portland’s King Neighborhood has demonstrated steady growth in the real estate market for nearly a decade. The area features an eclectic collections of home styles, ranging from craftsman to modern varieties.
