Testimonials

How does one give more than 5 starts? Jamie made selling our property a piece of cake. A hard worker and organizer while making a dreaded task for us manageable, Jamie made the process almost fun... with better than expected results. If you can, get Jamie to be your realtor. We can't recommend her highly enough.”

- Paul

Seller, NW Portland

“Jamie was amazingly helpful and supportive during the process of buying our first home. She worked very well with our lender and walked us through each element so we were confident in moving forward. She understood what we needed and was able to tailor her service to suit it. Even after we had closed, Jamie went above and beyond by helping us find and communicate with contractors. Thanks Jamie!”

- Dan

Buyer, SE Portland

“Jamie is wonderful to work with! She made the whole sale process smooth and easy. Our house came with its own set of challenges and its own special beauty, and she was able to see and work with both. She brought professionalism, knowledge, a tremendous work ethic, and a great network. We felt cared for by a powerful team throughout the process. There was never any pressure, and she rolled with the inevitable delays and surprises (there were many!). We were happy with the price our house brought in, the process, and that it went to a family that would love it and bring good things to the neighborhood.”

- Alisa

Seller, NE Portland

“As a first-time home buyer, I feel fortunate to have had Jamie as my buyer's agent and am thrilled with the work she did. Jamie made every step of the process simple and straightforward, from touring listings to closing. She is attentive, professional, reliable, and personable. I was able to get the first house I made an offer on, and Jamie's negotiating skills made all the difference. She was invaluable in helping me navigate a competitive market with confidence, and she made the daunting process of buying my first home seamless and enjoyable. Whether you're selling and buying, I highly recommend choosing Jamie as your agent.”

- Michael

Buyer, SE Portland

"My wife and I worked with Jamie during the process of buying our first home.  We had so many questions and concerns from the jump and she was always there and able to help.  Jamie's professionalism, time commitment, and energy from beginning to end were constantly helpful and impressive.  I would highly recommend working with Jamie to any first-timers buyer.  I also believe she would be a great fit for anyone who has had a less than ideal experience in the past.  Her dedication and tireless commitment to making sure we had a seamless experience and got exactly what we needed in a timely matter was amazing."

- Scott

Buyer, SE Portland

"I highly recommend Jamie as a real estate broker in the Portland area.  During the sale of our house, Jamie was professional; she responded quickly and worked hard to address our needs.  Born and raised in Portland, she has an in-depth understanding of the market and provided excellent advice on how to best market our house, with fantastic results."

- Kirsten

Seller, N. Portland

“We could not have asked for a better realtor and partner to help us buy our first home! Jamie was outstanding. She was patient, answered the millions of questions we threw at her, and made time for us even when she was out of town. Numerous times throughout this process my partner and I would turn to each other and say, "we are so happy that we chose to work with Jamie." Never once did we feel pressured to make a decision. At times, she even talked us out of putting an offer down, which ultimately was the right decision. And her support doesn't stop after your offer is accepted. During the closing process, it felt like she went above and beyond throughout the inspection, working with vendors and organizing bids coming in. I would hands down 100% work with Jamie again and cannot recommend her enough, especially for any first time buyers!”

 - Stephanie

Buyer, NE Portland

"Jamie was an amazing realtor to partner with. We worked over the course of almost a year to find my perfect first home. She was patient, thoughtful and knowledgeable. As a woman homeowner, she helped me to feel comfortable with the process and understand how to navigate this tricky market. I highly recommend her services!"

- Tara

Buyer, NE Portland

"I cannot speak highly enough of Jamie! By the time my husband and I were finally ready to buy a house, COVID combined with low inventory made the Portland market the weirdest and most competitive it had ever been. But this didn’t phase Jamie at all. She’s an absolute professional—smart, creative, and responsive—but she’s also positive and fun to work with, which makes what could be a stressful and disheartening experience really wonderful. She showed us perfect-for-us houses we hadn’t seen online, gave us ideas throughout our search, and knew everything about every neighborhood we visited. But her skills go beyond just knowing the market. She can perfectly explain foreign concepts to first-time buyers (e.g., earnest money, contingencies, etc.) and devise creative, unbeatable offers. Total 10/10."

- Sarah

Buyer, NE Portland

"Jamie is exactly what you'd hope for in a real estate professional, and more. In fact, we ended up buying two houses with her, we liked working with her so much. 

She really took the time to understand what we wanted in buying a house, including diplomatically navigating where my partner and I may have wanted different or even contradictory things. Her knowledge of Portland and surrounding area is second to none. In the negotiation phases, she approaches options pragmatically and with curiosity. She seeks counsel from peers and clients to ensure she makes the best recommendations possible, but then presents a direct, honest, and confident offer or repair addendum. She was responsive to the point that we felt like friends who had known each other for years. 

I think what speaks to Jamie's integrity and skill the most are the houses she talked us out of buying. We would send her a house, and she was always supportive in looking, if wanted, but very diplomatically posed questions about what we had stated as things we wanted, or her understanding of us as house buyers, and how the suggestions we sent might pose challenges to that. What real estate agent will caution you against a house, knowing that you won't be happy with it in the long term? But when we found the right houses, she was a fierce advocate. We landed both of the homes, the first homes we put offers in on."

- Grant

Buyer, SE Portland + Welches, OR

"Working with Jamie on selling our families starter home was an absolute dream.  Her and her teams thoroughness throughout the entire process was more than we ever expected.

Jamie did a great job walking us through the steps we needed to take to get our home ready for the market.  The vendors she found all did an excellent job in a timely manner and were very affordable.  Not once did we feel like a suggestion was made by Jamie that wasn’t necessary to sell our home.

The marketing package Jamie and her team put together to sell our home was first class the entire way.  After seeing the way our home was staged, along with the photos and videos they took it almost made us not want to sell it!

I would highly recommend using Jamie Van Hoorn as your realtor."
