Richard and Jean Murphy are a husband and wife team who devote their whole life to searching for their clients. They were open, honest, and thorough. They did a great job of finding houses that met our criteria, and suggesting good houses we would not have considered. They helped us get answers to all our questions from the owners and their agent. They pointed out problems (like a bad roof) that we would not have recognized. I can't imagine anyone more knowledgeable and more accessible for someone searching for the right house.
My wife and I were new to the Portland area and worked with a couple different brokers, and by far, Chris Saladino from Ocean Gate Realty was the best. It's stressful enough looking for a new home, but when you're relocating a family to an area you know little about, you really need help. Chris is easy going personality, has great knowledge of the local area, and really understood what we were looking for in a new community. I'll be using Chris again whenever my next purchase comes up.
