About

Jenny and Charles teamed up as Realtors in 2003. Every year since then we’ve continued to grow and improve the service and expertise we are able to offer you, our clients. In 2010 we incorporated, in part to underscore that real estate is a business, not a part time hobby. Our current business is over fifty percent past client and past client referrals. Earning your repeat business and referrals is our main goal. Our unique team structure allows us to serve the Portland Metro area from SW Washington, through Portland and down to the mid-Willamette Valley. We have the tools and expertise to guide you through any residential real estate transaction.
