After 15 years of having Jeff Rhodes of Farrell & Associates manage my house as a rental, I hired Mark Farrell to be my agent when I decided to sell it. I do not live in Portland, so thought it might be a challenge, yet he made it very easy for me. I was able to sign documents securely online and he always returned my calls the same day if he wasn’t available when I did call. My house sold within a couple weeks of going on the market for over the asking price. Thank you Mark and Farrell & Associates for being so trustworthy, knowledgeable and easy to work with.
The resent experience we had working with Cindy as our Realtor was lead as to live in our new dream house. Cindy is a very helpful and understanding. For a first home buyer like us, it was hard to trust some one and make a decision but Cindy walked us through the fear every new home buyers going and helped us to make a right decision.she was available to show us the houses to our convenience. Thank you, we recommend to any one who’s planing to buy a house and we’ll be happy to work with her in the future.
Whitney did a great job with my house. Straightforward and no frills, exactly what I was looking for and the house was sold in a month.
I just completed my third transaction with Mark Farrell, and highly recommend Farrell and Associates. Mark is extremely knowledgeable about the market — particularly in N. and NE Portland — and he provides fantastic customer service. In the past he helped me purchase a rental property, work with a builder to buy a ground-up custom built home, and represented me on a property sale. In each case he brought strong knowledge and customer service to the transaction and I am very satisfied with the outcome of each transaction. I would recommend Mark and his team.
I was a first time home buyer and was really looking some expert advise in what this process entails. I was highly recommended by some friends to talk to real estate agent Cindy Somsanith at Farrell & Associates to help me out. I was looking for a home in or near the North Portland area of St. Johns where her Realtor office is located near. I have to say that she was a true blessing, from her knowledge of the business, the process, the area to look, and any other questions I had involving really buying and owning a home. I really appreciated in how far willing and honest she was in helping me on my search and extremely long list of wants in a home. This was a big point in my life and she understood that. Cindy took my wish list and by the next day had a long list of homes for me to look thru. From to sell homes, undeveloped lots and foreclosures. I saw them all. Throughout this process, I think we must of looked at about 30 homes all over the Portland area (yes I am a picky person :). But thru all of this, Cindy’s patience never wavered and not once did I ever fell the pressure form her to buy something that I was not fully comfortable with. This really made me feel like I was doing the right thing.
After about 2 months search, I had found my perfect first home. A foreclosed short sale property, that was actually very close to a friend of mine. There are a lot of horror stories out there about short sales but I have to say that Cindy informed me in all the details and I once never questioned that she could get it done and I would have my very first home that I had been patiently waiting for. After about a month of Cindy dealing with the seller and banks, I was finally able to sign and receive my keys to my very first home. Since that day I have not once questioned my decision to buy MY first home 🙂
I’d like to say thank you to everyone at Farrell & Associates and especially Cindy & Jeff in being such great people helping me achieve that “American Dream”.
Whitney P was our realtor on the sale of our condo. He was the best! I would recommend him to anyone. Our sale was pretty small compared to I’m sure larger customers, but he was with us all the way, and with his experience and knowledge of the St. Johns area and the market, he sold our condo within a week during rather hard economic times.
Mark, you have helped us sell one home and purchase two homes so far… we couldn’t have done any of it without you. Your professionalism, expertise and knowledge have been invaluable. I also appreciate your ability to cut to the chase and give it to me “straight” when I need you to 🙂 Aric and I were amazed at your patience with us, your hard work AND the fact that you worked with us straight through your vacation in Hawaii! That’s dedication! In addition, Nikki was so helpful, too. She was there for us when you couldn’t be and acted as your voice when we needed her to. You both really grasped our needs and helped us achieve our goals– and then some! We are very grateful and would highly recommend you to anybody in need of a real estate professional.
Lora & Aric
Nikki is the best Realtor I have ever worked with. She worked around mine and my husbands schedule even staying till almost eleven p.m. to sign papers. She helped us with our loan officer multiple times. She even dealt with the under writers just to make sure everything was perfect. When we were ready to refinance we called Nikki to ask who she recommended. We highly recommend Nikki to anyone we know is looking, she takes care in the details and will find you a house that you will call a home.
My husband and I just bought our first home and had the pleasure of having Cindy S. as our realtor. We couldn’t have asked for a better realtor!! As first time homeowners, we didn’t really know what we were getting ourselves into. With her knowledge and expertise, we were able to find a home we loved and close all within a month. Cindy was very patient with my unending amount of questions and always made herself available. If you’re looking for the best realtor in Oregon, contact Cindy at Farrell & Associates!!!
I have had to sell properties a couple of times due to critical issues. They are a family run business, and do a great job at making you feel comfortable in a sometimes tough situation. Both times Farrell Realty has come through with honors helping me sell my home. They’re very honest and always have their customers best interest at heart. I won’t use anyone else…unless they close the doors. 🙂
n December my girlfriend and I began looking for a house in Happy Valley. We were pretty specific in what we wanted and told Cindy at Farrell And Associates what we were looking for. The very first house she took us to had the perfect floor plan, but the yard was very steep so we kept looking. A few weeks later she found the same floor plan, but on a flat lot that was almost complete in the same neighborhood. Cindy helped us negotiate a fair deal on the house and we moved into the house in February. After finding the house we wanted to buy, I needed to sell my house pretty fast. Cindy helped decide on a few things to do to the house to get it ready for sale, and got it listed. We had an offer on the house within 6 days of the listing! The sale of my house went very smooth, and the deal closed before the first payment was due on the new house. I would highly recomend Cindy Somsanith to anyone wanting to buy or sell a house in the Portland area.
This team sold my commercial property in North Portland and did a a great job. I found the broker of this sale, Tim, to be ethical and knowledgeable. He and Nikki went above and beyond here, completing the deal professionally, staying cool and meeting my goals.
These guys are so awesome. They took a chance with me and my family when we couldn’t find a place to live. They have excellent customer service and want the best for their tenants. They respond in a effective way to work orders placed, they always answer your questions, and when you walk into their office we’re looked at as one of them. Couldn’t ask for a better landlord and I couldn’t say enough good things about them.
I can’t thank Tim and Nikki enough. I lived in the same house for 45 years and was very nervous about selling and moving. Tim explained everything along the way and Nikki did a HUGE Open House. The house sold very quickly and I am grateful for their professionalism and friendliness. I trust Tim and Nikki and highly recommend them to anyone selling or buying a home.
We had a very difficult home purchase and these two kept up with the craziness of the whole thing.
Marilyn and Roxanne helped me every step of the way. They were available, kind, helpful, accommodating, and incredibly knowledgeable. They were able to explain everything I needed to know and were happy to answer all of my questions. Not only were they gracious and professional but also personable. They took good care of me through every step of the process and I am extremely happy with the home I bought and with the deal made one the purchase. My only regret is not getting to hang out with them anymore. They are that amazing!! Thank you so very much, Brett Mills
With the spread of online sites for real estate listings, the role of a realtor has changed in many ways. We were very impressed with the fact that Whitney and team have adapted incredibly well to the “new world”, and so did a great job with: – driving selling agents to arrange showings of houses very rapidly to meet our tight schedule – suggesting parameters and refinements for our online searches – dragging critical details out of selling agents – quickly interfacing with colleagues and sources to get detailed information about schools, neighborhoods, construction/remodeling methods – Both before and after closing, finding high-quality service providers very rapidly – bankers, painters, electricians (less than 60 minutes from a call to Whitney on a SUNDAY until very good electrician in the house – AFTER closing of the sale), furnace installers, etc, and when needed, doing the full interface with these providers – Understanding our needs in terms of price, contingencies, and pre-closing repairs and working with a distressed seller to get us exactly what we wanted. In addition, I found it incredibly useful and cost-effective to work with a realtor who has “dirty hands” – Whitney is the first realtor I have worked with who has built houses, remodeled houses, and repaired pretty much anything. Makes it FAR easier to get rid of the risky or marginal properties, and to estimate costs involved with the right properties. Bottom line: Whitney and his team got the job done, using their skills, contacts, and resources to interface with the online tools in the best possible manner. They are not resistant to the changes in the industry; on the contrary, they are doing a terrific job of providing much deeper and faster service as a result.
In November of this year (2012) my wife and I decided we should take advantage of the good rental market in Portland and buy a rental property. We are long-time North Portland residents and partial to the St. Johns area. We bought a rental property about 18 years ago in the area, and it has proven to be a good investment.
So one of the criteria for choosing a Realtor was that they be very familiar with St. Johns and also know the rental market. Mark Farrell gets big points on both counts. And Jeff Rhoades, the property manager with Farrell’s, has done a great job of managing the first property for many years, advocating for us as well as for the tenant. Mark and Jeff really know the area.
We looked at maybe a half-dozen houses through the month and Mark was always very straightforward about the pluses and minuses of each one, genuinely concerned that we get a low maintenance, easy-to-rent property. We were never pressured. And he was always available and easy and pleasant to work with.
Once we found a house in our price range, in a good neighborhood, Mark helped us negotiate some necessary repairs with the seller, and arrive at fair price, and we made the offer. Mark did a great job guiding us through all the layers of paperwork, too. The closing was delayed a couple weeks due to uncooperative weather making the said repairs difficult, but eventually they were done and the deal closed in late January. All quite painless. (if you can call getting a mortgage painless these days). And to top it off Jeff had the place rented on the very day the deal closed. Couldn’t really have gone much smoother.
Ask for Cindy S! We recently closed on a home with her and I highly recommend her! We had been looking for months on end and Cindy was always willing to show us more when we weren’t satisfied, got our questions answered quickly, and exceeded our expectations as a realtor. The home buying process can be overwhelming, but Cindy made it easier for me. My work schedule is hard to work with but Cindy was flexible and kept on top of everything to make sure all the documents were correct and the process went smoothly. She corresponded with my loan agents and the sellers agents and made sure everything was in order. She is patient, hard working, and a pleasure to work with! Thank you Cindy and Farrell and Associates!
Three years ago in 2009 we began to search for a home in north Portland for our daughters. We found Deanna Bean at Farrell reality. She showed our daughters many homes in north Portland Taking her time to explain all the advantages and disadvantages of each house she showed to them. My wife and I live in Montana and could not be in Portland to look for homes so we depended on Deanna to make sure that we found a home that was just right for our daughters and would be a good long term investment for our family. Deanna was always available and sought out information for us every step of the way through the closing. In 2012 we decided to purchase another house in north Portland and again we turned to Deanna Bean . Both times we worked with Deanna she was just terrific I don’t think one could get a better real estate professional. You just can’t go wrong with her.
Nikki was a great help for my husband and I buying our first home. Nikki went above and beyond helping us find the home that was perfect. Nikki was very patient with us every time we changed our mind or changed the location of where we wanted to find a home. Nikki worked really well with our crazy busy work schedules. I would recommend Nikki young to anyone out looking for a great and easy and understanding real estate agent to work with.
I bought my house through Farrell 5 years ago. It was a great experience! I never felt pressured or rushed into anything even after seeing more than 20 different houses before deciding on one. They are great to work with and are very reliable.
Kirstin showed me a lot of houses…she was never late, she was prompt in responding to my questions, was well informed about the properties, and I am VERY happy….AND she wore nice shoes.
I have worked with Farrell Realty for over 30 years. I have always felt they have been fair and honest in all transactions and when things have gotten tough their advice has been invaluable. I have much respect for their staff and feel they are more family then just another agent. If you need an agent to buy or sell your home Farrell Realty is the place to go.
Whitney helped my purchase my first home in 2003. I moved from New York City with 1 week to find a house. We probably looked at 30 before I found “the one.” Whitney knows Portland well and listened to my needs. He is patient and kind and knowledgeable. I found “the one” and the negotiation process was painless… even pleasant I might say. Whitney helped me sell my first house in 2007. Again, he made an otherwise scary process simple and exciting. I was pleased with the sale and the proceeds! Whitney also helped me buy my second house in Portland. This is the house I may retire in but if I ever need a realtor again, I will definitely call Whitney. He’s a great guy and I guarantee you will be blown away by his service.
I changed real estate agents when my previous agent failed to listen to what I wanted in a house, and was failing to send me houses that fit my criteria until they were already on the market for 3 days and already had offers. I switched to Farrell and Associates after someone else recommended them to me. I was able to give Whitney a list of everything I required in a house, and my preferences on things I would like but that were optional. He did very well in only sending me listings that I might actually be interested in, and sending me emails to check in to let me know he had been looking and that nothing had come up. He never wasted my time by sending things he knew I wouldn’t like. Other agents will let things get in the way and only check your possible matches every 3 or 4 days causing you to miss out on the one house that would have been your dream. Not Whitney. He will check multiple times a day so that if that one house comes on the market you can view it and make an offer the same day!
Whitney helped me buy my house a couple years ago and he was great. He knows N & NE Portland really well, and is honest and constructive in giving advice, but without being pushy. He’s also incredibly patient – he must have shown me about 70 houses over 6 months, and he was always looking out for me. He would happily make a special trip to show me a single house that he thought I might like, and when we finally found ‘the one,’ he kept up the same great level of service all the way through closing and move-in. I have recommended Whitney to several friends and will keep doing it – and I look forward to working with him again.
Mark Farrell and Whitney Petersen did an outstanding job for us. First they did all of the legwork to help us divide a double lot and then sell it for the price we agreed on. Several months later they established a sale price for the house on the other lot, and it had offers immediately. When we agreed to the sale terms and repairs were needed quickly, Whitney lined up bids and got the work accomplished in time for the deal to meet the closing date. We didn’t have any hassles to deal with – they did it all for us. It was a great experience and we are very pleased and grateful. Many thanks to both Mark and Whitney – we highly recommend them!
I bought my first house using Farrell and couldn’t be more pleased. Whitney Peterson understood my needs and questions as a first time buyer. Whitney was quick to point out things I would have missed to make sure I knew everything possible before making a decision. I started with a realtor and ended with a friend, I will never use another realtor again. If you are looking for attention and someone that cares about your needs look no further!
After lots of headaches with other agencies we finally hooked up with an agent from Farrell and were surprised at the level of service we received. The agent was honest and gave us her opinion when we were unsure. She once dropped everything in the middle of her work day because of a new listing that she thought would be perfect for us, and it was! I was surprised by their level of integrity too. Just after buying the house we had some issues with the home owners previous contractors. Mark Farrell himself came down to speak with the contractors for us when they refused to do warranty repairs. Finally instead of leaving us empty handed he recommended one of his own guys. He explained to him our problem and got him to do it for the price originally quoted by the other contractor during our home inspection. This is something Mark didn’t have to do but because of it I will never use another real estate agency. I highly recommend them to all my friends and anyone I come across.
We genuinely appreciate the work that you put into selling our house. It was very easy to contact Farrell Realty, even at odd hours, when we had a few unusual issues come up. You provided us competent advice back in 2010 when we first went to sell this house, and the market for the house was just not there. This is the reason we went back to your business when the local market became healthy again. The house sold, and closed much more quickly than I expected. We will refer our Oregon friends and family to your business in the future.
Just using words alone won’t describe how happy I am with your services. You all have done an exceptionally good job on finding perfect tenants for my property plus rent is always deposited into my account on time or early. I have never experienced any problem in the past three years under your roof.
Thank you and keep up the good work.
Tom Hall and the Farrell team are the best! I have worked with them twice, buying and selling and the experience was wonderful. When I needed repair work done, they were able to get me connected with a local contractor that took care of everything I needed. They truly are a full service real estate firm and I couldn’t give them a higher recommendation.
My experience with Farrell Realty was wonderful. Specifically, Cindy Somsanith, our realtor- She is amazing. Cindy was punctual, responsive and anticipated our every needs and question. She more than followed through on her word and exceeded our every expectation. Our house buying process was stressful due to the current market, but Cindy made it ok by explaining everything to us and walking us through every step. I highly recommend Cindy as a Realtor.
She is awesome realtor. Always on time and very friendly.
Every time I needed anything, she was there for me.
Thanks Cindy for helping me selling and buying new house.i really like to work with her.
We have had an amazing experience with Farrell. Tim and Nikki both went above and beyond for us. Always responded in a timely manner and answered any questions we had. We give them a 5 star rating! I would not hesitate to recommend your company to anyone. Thank you!
Marilyn went the extra mile in working with me and my family. Our relationship with Marilyn started a couple of years ago as we started having conversations with my Dad about it being time for him to move, given his age and declining health. As is the case with most senior citizens, they take awhile to make decisions particularly when it involves moving out of their homes. Marilyn was very patient in working through this issue with our Dad and family.
Unfortunately, my Dad passed away early this year, March 19, 2015. Marilyn worked with us in identifying people that could do the needed repairs and upgrades to get the property ready for sale. Our situation was particularly challenging because none of us live in Portland. I live in Seattle and my siblings live in Northern California.
We were able to get a reasonable price for the house and recoup what we spent to get the house ready for sale, plus a small margin.
I now understand why my Dad was slow to decide about moving out of his house. There was a lot to be done. I do not think he was up for it. However, we got it done and are relieve to be done with the property. Now that we are just done with handling most of my Dad’s affairs, I think we are all now dealing with the lost.
Thanks for your assistance with dealing with a difficult situation.
I would definitely recommend Marilyn to others.
I have worked with them twice, buying and selling and the experience was wonderful. When I needed repair work done, they were able to get me connected with a local contractor that took care of everything I needed.

My wife and I feel incredibly lucky to have contacted Tom Hall of Farrell and Associates. He’s extremely personable, knowledgeable of the North Portland/Portland Metro real estate, and was extremely easy to work with. Given the highly competitive Portland housing market, this is exactly what you need.
He was professional, respectful and courteous, and always made himself available to us. His background in economics helped us make informed decisions about the value of a home/property. Most importantly, we truly felt he had our best interests in mind and was genuinely looking out for our family’s needs.
His negotiation skills are one of his greatest assets. We had the utmost confidence in his strategy and advice for competitive offers.
Additionally, even after we closed on our new home, he continued to be an ally and consultant weeks afterward on both minor and major home renovation projects. He goes above and beyond the call of duty, offering suggestions more like a good friend would, which we are sincerely grateful for.
I wouldn’t want to work with any other realtor and strongly recommend him to close friends and acquaintances alike. He’s a true professional realtor and more.
Tom has helped us buy 3 houses. He always answers his phone and has the answer to every little question I have had, and has consistently helped us pay as little as possible for our homes. Tom’s research skills are second to none – He knows the area and has insights into what is going on in neighborhoods. His local knowledge has saved us money. I highly recommend Tom Hall. He has worked very hard for us every time!

Tom went out of his way on multiple occasions to help the transaction go as smoothly and stress free as possible. Very knowledgeable, proficient, professional and gets you the deal you want. Highly recommend him to anyone seriously inquiring about buying a home
He found us reliable contractors when we need to repair the foundation. He was a wealth of knowledge for the neighborhood and knew about the surrounding school districts. He does his homework! A trust worthy agent who works for you, not the deal
– Tracy H
Tom got us squared away with a quickness. He was knowledgeable of the VA Loan process and helped ensure that that we were prepared for everything along the way. – Dana G
My wife and I recently sold our home in North Portland using Nikki del Giudice as our agent. We can not express in words how happy we were with our service. She took care of absolutely everything! She kept us in communication about everything that was happening. The house was on the market for only 2 days before we had offers on our home above our asking price! We highly recommend using Nikki and Farrell Realty for all of your real estate needs!
-Shane & Candice
Nikki was the voice of reason for my husband and I. She assisted us through selling our home and through the purchase of our new home. Buying and selling within 60 days was a herculean proposition. She was always available to respond to our questions and did so professionally; even when she was on her family vacation. If we could give her 10 stars we would.
We would highly recommend Cindy in both selling your home and in buying a new home. She is very professional and knowledgeable in real estate legalities. Any questions we had were answered right away. She was always ready to assist us in scheduling viewings and also walking us thru the selling process of our home.
These guys are so awesome. They took a chance with me and my family when we couldn’t find a place to live. They have excellent customer service and want the best for their tenants. They respond in a effective way to work orders placed, they always answer your questions, and when you walk into their office we’re looked at as one of them. Couldn’t ask for a better landlord and I couldn’t say even good things about them.
I worked with Rosemary Chitala in finding a home. Rosemary was very positive, helpful and loving. Rosemary taught me a lot about the home buying process and gave me a lot of information to factor into the homes we looked at. I recommend this company and especially Rosemary to get you through the home buying process. Thanks Farrell And Associates.
Nikki is by far the best REALTOR® I know. She sold our house quickly and for more than the price agreed upon. She would be #1 on my list for a recommendation. The process was very smooth. She actually went out of her way to make sure we were comfortable the whole time. Thank You NIKKI.
Working with Nikki has been a blessing. We bought our first home from her a little over 4 years ago. She was very knowledgeable of the area, made appointments that met with both of our work schedules and was never pushy. I didn’t quite have the vision for our home that my husband had so it took me a little convincing. Nikki was very patient and willingly showed us our home multiple times before we put in the offer. Prior to, during and in the four years since the purchase of our home, she has been a wonderful resource for all of our questions.
My husband’s aunt and uncle were having troubles selling their home this past year with a different agent and were looking to make a switch. We recommended Nikki, who managed to meet their high list of demands and was able to get their house sold.
Nikki has been such a helpful resource throughout the years, answering all of my market questions, running me comparables and giving tips on the best ROI on our home improvements. As we prepare to put our house on the market and search for the next ‘dream home’ we are so grateful and appreciative to have Nikki merely a phone call away. We would highly recommend her to all of our friends and family or anyone searching for a reliable, responsive, understanding, patient and importantly non-pushy REALTOR®!
My husband and I had a wonderful experience working with Cindy Somsanith. It was our first time selling our home, so we were nervous and didn’t know what to expect. She helped simplify everything, she was knowledgeable, and was able to give us great advice. We were extremely happy to work with Cindy and will recommend her to all of our friends and family.
Nikki helped my husband and I buy our first home. I started out with another agent who was hard to reach and could not promptly answer my questions. Nikki was GREAT!!! Being that I work at a Hospital and graveyard shift my hours of availability to find a home were often limited and inconvenient for most. Nikki was always available to answer my calls, send me property listings new to the market, and take me to view new homes.
When we finally found a home we could see ourselves in she helped work out all the kinks, negotiate a good price, and find me contractors with excellent pricing to do the upgrades we wanted. We will definitely use her again and I recommend her to everyone I know who is looking to purchase a home. You couldn’t ask for a better agent. 🙂
Nikki del Giudice deserves MORE than 5 stars! She goes above and beyond for every client! Her years of experience in the industry are demonstrated with every action and decision she helps guide you through. She has a diverse list of contacts from brokers to home inspectors, which made the process of purchasing our first home seamless! Nikki was always flexible with our schedule and responsive with every email and text. With our purchase of our home, Nikki actually did make miracles happen!
Nikki is great to work with. She is professional and responds very quickly to any questions or concerns. I highly recommend her as a listing agent. She sold two homes for me very quickly and for top dollar. I am an out of state seller and she took care of getting my homes ready to put on the market for me. I wouldn’t hesitate to work with Nikki in the future. 5 Stars!!!
I am so happy Nikki was our REALTOR®. She took care of everything by phone and e-mail and kept me informed. She made a difficult situation easy. Thank You Nikki!
Tim was my Real Estate Agent in Portland, Oregon and spent countless hours filling out paperwork and driving around the city to help me find the right property for my situation. I’m a first time home buyer, not very rich and didn’t have a whole lot of resources to work with but Tim helped me get setup with the correct people and a few months later I got the keys to my first home! Months later he still keeps in contact with me and is happy that I am happy! Buying a home for the first time is intimidating, confusing and stressful and meeting Tim was a godsend to me. My Grandparents are getting ready to sell their home in April and I have referred them to Tim as well.
Buying a house right now in Portland is a very overwhelming and stressful thing to do, especially when you are first-time home buyers. Cindy Somsanith at Farrell & Associates worked with us every step of the way to make sure we knew the entire process and what to expect. She patiently looked at every house we suggested, even the horrible, out of the way ones. She really took the time to understand who we were and what we were looking for in a house. I know she had other clients, but Cindy really made it seem like we were her only clients and that we had her full attention. We would not be homeowners now without all of the time and effort Cindy put into helping us find our perfect home. We are actually kind of sad now that we won’t be texting or meeting up with her after work anymore, but we know that she has friends and clients for life now.
My fiance and I just bought our first home with the help of Farrell and Associates and our wonderful agent Cindy S. This was our 3rd time trying and as they say.. “3rd time is a charm!!” I couldn’t have asked for a better realtor. She was so patient, informing and what I loved most was took our best interests into account. She was professional and always dealt with all situations like a PRO!! She made a really stressful process go very quickly and smoothly. I would recommend Cindy and Farrell to all my friends. Thank you!!!
My realtor was Cindy Somsanith, and I must say, she is absolutely amazing. Cindy broke everything down for us so that we could better understand the process as first time home buyers. What amazed me the most about her is that she continued to work with us for over a year. We tried a couple times to get approved, but our incomes or credit just couldn’t get to where we needed it to be. We told her we’d wait and try again in a little over 6 months, and guess what, she remembered!! She emailed me and asked how we were doing and if we were thinking to be ready. And we were! Working with someone like Cindy made my experience as a first time home buyer seem less stressful than everyone made it to be. She was very quick to respond to my questions and concerns, and she always reassured that things were going to be fine if I got too nervous or anxious. She was also straight forward when it did come to certain hurdles. I will definitely be recommending my friends and family to work with Cindy and the Ferrell and Associates company.
We worked with Jameson from Farrell and Associates. He was recommended to us by one of our good friends and we loved working with him. He was extremely active in helping us find new leads that met our criteria, meeting us at all the houses we were interested in (even outside of his normal area), and doing research when necessary. One thing that made me trust him was that if we had a question and he didn’t know the answer he would tell us he didn’t know but would immediately run it by the principle broker to get an answer. We never felt we were being lied to or pressured into buying something we didn’t want. It’s easy to tell that he loves what he’s doing and is just as invested in finding a house as we were. After we had an accepted offer he stayed very active in the lending process. He caught something on the inspection report that we had missed that ended up saving us $1100. This was the first house we have bought and next time we are looking for a house we hope to work with Jameson again. We would highly recommend working with Jameson. Thank you!!
Alec at Farrell and Associates is the most patient and expert realtor I’ve ever met. He’s extremely professional and knowledgeable and tuned in right away to what I was looking for. He was indispensable throughout the entire process and very supportive. He volunteered help and suggestions way beyond his remit and I have already recommended him to many friends.
I just purchased a row house in St Johns with the help of Whitney. I appreciated his warmth, honesty and knowledge throughout this process. I was on a timeline and he worked diligently to make it happen. I moved to Portland from WA state and had to communicate through calls, emails, etc. Whitney was always there and able to talk when I needed answers, and scheduled all inspections and associated closing commitments quickly and without any hitches! I am so pleased with this house, and location. I could not have done it without a realtor that knows North Portland completely and honestly gave me input about the area. I am grateful to him for hard work! Highly recommend!!!!
We just sold our house with Nicole. We were grateful for the expertise and advice provided along the way. We would highly recommend Nicole. She made the process as painless as possible and even helped us find a realtor in another city. The house selling process can have so many unexpected hiccups, it helps to have a realtor you can trust to get things done and represent you in all the various transactions required.
