What makes you Alternative?
So what makes us Alternative… When first established in 1995 we were one of the first locally-owned boutique real estate firms in Portland, the only alternative to the big corporations. We choose to remain a small brokerage to ensure all of our agents have thorough training and mentorship with industry vets. Our reputation for being authentic and hard-working has cultivated deep connections with our clients, developing into a strong referral-based community.
Do you offer rentals?
We do not work with rentals. We typically recommend padmapper.com because it pulls from different websites and puts it in one platform. If you’re looking for a furnished short-term rental, here is a link.
Do you work outside of Portland?
We specialize in close in Portland neighborhoods, but here is a list of nearby locations our agents have worked in:
- Oregon City,
- Lake Oswego,
- West Linn,
Do you recommend a good lender?
Absolutely! Here are a few of our preferred lenders:
- Aaron Nawrocki
Capital M Lending
- Jennifer Leon
- Steph Noble
Cross Country Mortgage
- Jeri Maher
Advantis Credit Union
