    Marianne made me feel comfortable every step of the way, it didn’t feel like I was ‘ working’ with her, it was like spending time with a friend who just happen to want to help find a house in the process. She always responded to any of my emails/calls extremely quickly (never exceeding 24hr), she was available to me every week for viewings even w my hectic work schedule, she actually listened when I changed my mind about location, budget, etc. She never pressured me to look beyond my means nor did she try and push higher priced homes if they were not a good fit for me- we ended up buying 70k below our adjusted budget, she clearly values integrity over a commission. After finding the perfect home, she stayed in close contact during the inspection phase, closing, getting keys- she was there in person for absolutely everything, I couldn’t be more appreciative of the time she spent w me. Since closing at the end of July, I may have had several silly questions, and she continues to inform me quickly and correctly even though our ‘work’ is done, again, very much appreciated. This was my first home and she explained everything in a way that I could truly understand it. In addition to being truly informative she was extremely patient w me and my dad, and put me at ease. Never for a moment did I think she was stearing us in the wrong direction, and for a first time buyer who is not from pdx originally it was imperative to have that trust. I can’t thank her enough for my 6mos adventure w her, I would recommend her to anyone and fully intend to use her in the future,

    Frank Joseph has been my realtor for about 16 years and helped me with purchase and sell personal and rental properties. He’s very fun to work with and is extremely knowledgeable. I would highly recommend him!

    Jan was amazing! She was very responsive to my husband and my needs. She diligently worked for us and made us feel as though we were her only client. She was professional and knowledgeable. She spent countless hours trying to find us the perfect home.  My husband wanted to buy a fixer upper so he could flip the house. With her help we found it and in less than 6 months restored it and then sold it for us. I would highly recommend Jan for any of your real estate needs

    Jan Groff was so helpful to us with selling our house. She was on the ball and very professional. She helped us get all the repairs done on time and was always there for us.  A great listener and a great agent!

    Bill and Dierdre,

    Thank you for being such awesome people. Interviewing real estate agents to list your home is a little scary but the two of you eased my mind right away and you didn’t try to sell us anything. You listened and treated us like family.  I really want to express to you how much I appreciate your hard work and personal attention. I really do think of you as extended family. You went above and beyond what a person would expect in a business relationship. You successfully sold my mom’s place at a very agreeable price!  You were also able to find her a new place when other agents weren’t able to pinpoint exactly what she was looking for in her new home.  We were able to make the move we only dreamed about a reality and it all happened simultaneously.  A great big thank you and a super recommendation from me.

    Very simple process from start to finish. Couldn’t be happier with the outcome. Looking for a home is stressful, it’s a lot of change. Marianne took the stress out of it and listened to all of our concerns. All steps were clearly explained and nothing was sugar coated! Will use her again in a heartbeat.

    Marianne delivers as promised. She worked to keep me informed throughout the entire selling process of my home with up to date progress in near real-time. Marianne’s years of experience was obvious from the moment my wife Linda and I met her. After owning homes in Alaska, Hawaii, California, Wyoming, Colorado, New Mexico, and Oregon, Marianne is considered our best Realtor we have had (that’s in the past 30 years)! After having bad encounters with unprofessional Realtors, having complete trust in a person who is managing a sale of one’s home is essential for peace of mind. Marianne has my trust and her services will be sought after again if we ever buy another home in the Portland area. If you are selling or buying a home, your best first action should be (a must) is to contact Marianne. I feel confident that you will be glad that you did. “

    “I listed my house with Marianne Groom a few months ago and sold it at a price I was very satisfied within a short time. Marianne is very professional, courteous, and returned my calls, texts, and e-mails promptly. Marianne was always willing to offer her assistance and made the process of selling my house very smooth. She was able to answer all my questions and concerns, and consulted other agents to give me the best suggestions to make my house more “buyer-friendly.” During closing, Marianne went above and beyond what I expected her to do, and even worked on the holidays to make sure that everything went well without a glitch. I highly recommend Marianne as your next real estate agent.”

    What comes to mind when I think of Crystal is someone who is passionate about her clients and still believes in providing amazing service to anyone she comes in contact with. Her ability to connect, attention to detail, and amazing outlook on life makes her an amazing realtor to work with!!

    Yeah!  I have sold our home of 42 years.  Thank you, Mary Ganji Realtor, for your patience, persistence, and great advice and support throughout the entire process.  She found me a lovely house to buy and found buyers to buy our home, in spite of my trying to scare them away!    I had 3 offers for the asking price.  I did not want to get into a bidding war so I took the cleanest offer. Yeah!

    I would highly recommend DJ Mayer to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.  We never realized that selling a home could actually be fun!  Not only did DJ keep our home sale on track but his sense of humor made the journey much more enjoyable.

    Arti, Niwantha and I  both wanted to sincerely Thank you for all the help you have given us as well!! Without your consistent follow up with the house, we wouldn’t have been able to get the home. Thank you for making us feel comfortable with all of the financing decision. When we were not sure, you helped us to understand everything. Also you always thought of us and fought for what we want. Thank you for all your hard work throughout the process!! My mom and everyone said we were really blessed to have such a wonderful Realtor like you

    We worked with Frank Joseph and had an excellent experience and would use him again in a heart beat. He tells it like it is and was always available for us. We referred some friends to him and they had a similar experience as well. I hope to not move again anytime soon, but if we do, Frank will be my first call.

    Today was a real pleasure & we were able to get a lot accomplished. For all your effort, consideration, patience & great sense of humor I’ve learned a LOT! Also, much of the busy-work has actually turned out to be FUN (surprise, surprise!!!).  Thank You DJ…I really mean that!

    — KimberLee Bonnell

    Our experience with DJ as our broker was a ‘moving’ one in many ways; so much so that we now consider DJ Mayer a good friend.  During our first sit down at the kitchen table, he was very thorough in walking us through the process.  His fine sense of humor helped immeasurably as we worked together to flesh out details that made the whole process of selling our home come together.  Questions were responded to promptly so we were never left waiting to find out what would happen next.  Selling a home is never an easy thing but as we went along, we came to realize that we had the very best representing us.

    The professionalism and experience provided in the sale of our home, which had many extenuating circumstances allows me to recommend Frank Joseph without any hesitation. We would utilize his Real Estate services again.   Rich and  Joyce

    I had the best experience working with Arti as my realtor. Arti sold my house through a short sale that took over a year to complete. Throughout the entire process, Arti kept me up-to-speed on exactly what was happening and what she was doing to help along the process. I am confident that this sale would not have gone through without Arti’s constant perseverance and determination to get in touch with the right people and complete the right paperwork, all with a smile on her face! She is truly someone I would trust, and I definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a reliable and friendly realtor who will work as hard as she can to get the sale completed.
