Kiki Tumale


Kiki has been working in the real estate industry for the past 5 years. She's truly a service oriented person; for her, it's about helping people find homes and build wealth through real estate. When she's not house hunting with clients, Kiki spends her time practicing martial arts and hanging out with her two kids. Zillow Reviews
Kiki brought a host of professional resources, hands-on knowledge and expertise to the table that made the process straightforward, easy to understand and enjoyable. We all really felt like everyone ‘won’ after the transaction. We got a great deal for our house and it seems like the buyers are just as excited and thankful. We did a social-distance ‘High 5’ when we met the new owners after all the transaction procedures were complete! We have Kiki and her team to thank for a success story like this. She anticipates your questions, prepares you for each step, helps you stay on schedule and meet deadlines and knows the process inside and out. Kiki is also a natural at negotiating and has a really keen sense for the current market. I don’t think there is a house listed and/or sold in the last 3 years in the Portland area she doesn’t know about. Now we are off to a new adventure and Kiki and her team have even offered to help us find a good financial solution for our next home investment. We can’t wait! Home buying/selling - even navigating leasing or renting for awhile- seems really, really fun, totally not scary and easy now! Thank you Kiki!!! — Willow Knight

I would recommend you look no further in your search for a realtor because Kiki is the one. — monea4077

Melissa Messner


15 Sales in 2021

Matching people with properties is just one of my greatest strengths as a licensed real estate agent serving the Portland Metro area. My nurturing spirit and love for all that the Oregon lifestyle offers continues to benefit buyers and sellers hoping to turn real estate dreams into reality. I make it a point to build relationships with my clients— taking the time to listen, support and truly understand their needs. I credit my background as a librarian for the research and customer service skills I regularly call upon to identify properties, source homes and connect with qualified buyers, and to advocate and negotiate for my sellers. Prior to earning my real estate license, I served as an award-winning children’s librarian for 14 years. Since moving to Lake Oswego, I immersed myself in the community and fell in love with Oregon. I serve as a board member of the Arts Council of Lake Oswego and the Oregon Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. I love being involved in the community and volunteering. When I'm not working, I enjoy reading, walking, gardening and spending time with my husband of over 30 years and my two children. We love walking, boat rides and entertaining in our backyard. Zillow Reviews
Melissa worked her tail off to make sure both parties were getting communicated to and keeping us informed on what the buyers were expecting and what we were doing to make sure everything was buttoned up. Melissa educated us and helped us find great people to see the house because it was an very unique home. One of very few homes in Oregon that was built over water. She had two great Open Houses and she and her team had their hands full with a lot of prospects. Selling a unique home has its challenges, but Melissa was energetic and she listened really well to what sold us on the house. It is a special place and she showed it like it was her home. We are so pleased that another family will get to call it home and make their mark on this gem, but the kuddos go to Melissa for her patience, perseverance and happy calls keeping the ball moving and making the whole process a real joy. We can't recommend a better partner for you when it's time to sell your home. Melissa takes it personally and it's obvious she is doing what she was meant to do. — steveh037
Melissa has amazing attention to detail and is extremely intuitive. The first place she took me to I made an offer on. She is proactive and does her homework. I will continue to rely on her for all my future real estate needs because she really cares about her clients and is a true professional. She never missed a beat even when faced with family emergencies. I am still astounded by her resilience! — zuser20140711054153451
Melissa comes highly recommended and qualified. She expertly navigated me in downsizing and putting me in a beautiful home that is perfect for my new lifestyle. Her negotiating skills are great, she researches all aspects of a purchase, and her understanding of the real estate market is phenomenal. — user22601243

Mikayla was great to work with throughout my first home purchase. She is knowledgeable and professional. Mikayla worked quickly and was able to find me a home in just a couple of weeks (I had a narrow timeframe). I would definitely work with her again. — Stephanie Milbrodt
Mikayla was so warm and encouraging from the first time we spoke, and did a fantastic job feeling out what type of space I was looking for. She provided regular communication, checking in on how I was feeling throughout the home search, and sharing listings as soon as she found them. When we found a home I was interested in, she helped facilitate a visit right away, and helped me get to and from the showing during my lunch break.

Nicole Rodriguez is the best real estate professional I could have hoped for. Her professionalism and knowledge helped us get through first-time buying with no stress -- only excitement for our new adventure. I recommend her without reservation. As a first-time buyer, I had a million questions, fears, and insecurities -- there was so much I didn't know -- and she gave clear, calm, factual information. Her responses were rapid, and she was a great communicator. She made practical recommendations about house inspection, knew the area thoroughly, and advised us without pressure. She was patient with us, let us take our time, but never made us wait on her. She advocated for us fairly, and made sure we got everything we wanted. Other buyers might not be as lucky as we were, but you can believe Nicole will do a great job for you. — ladiesbane
Nicole was with us every step of the way. This was our first time buying an investment property and we were looking at properties in a completely different part of the state than where we live. Nicole did a bunch of research on the vacation rental rules and regulations and showed us a large variety of properties. She really helped us see all the possibilities of potential income producing properties. She was very quick to respond and also helped us remain calm whenever we started to feel a little overwhelmed. — blaine barklow

It's been a couple years ago to start. We live in California and wanted a small place in the Portland area to move by family. Well my husband and I called on a condo and got Ray on the phone. Immediately, quicker than Sonic Hedgehog, Ray was on top of looking for places for us. Well our personal picture changed and we had to put off looking, but Ray would still check in with us periodically. And, finally this year we were ready to purchase a home now. We came up to the Beaverton area where we wanted to locate and Ray showed us umpteen homes that all were descriptive of what we were looking for. We put in a couple offers and bingo. Ray held our hand through the entire process, and he came on board with the financing and a broker for home insurance. The Trifecta that we needed! Ray is more than a 5 star rating, he has become a personal friend indeed. You will be lucky to have him be your next realtor by far! — Jack & Cathy Sokoloski
I came to Portland not familiar with the neighborhoods. In a very hot market, Ray helped me maintain my equilibrium as we searched and FOUND my perfect home. I needed a great deal of moral support. He was both patient and supportive. — barbaravorlop8
This transaction was a very bumpy ride indeed. My purchase of my new home depended on the sale of another home I had. There were some real issues with my buyer possibly not being able to get the loan and we were coming right upon the closing date. I was on pins and needles, but Ray was Mr. Cool! The deal was closed and all the monies were transferred after the first bump in the road. It was a big nail-biting bump though and Ray rode it out like a pro. I really enjoyed doing business with Ray. He's sharp, smooth, efficient and a nice guy to boot. I would use him as an agent again in a hot second. — user366687
