HAMILTON REALTY – Testimonials (2013 to Present)
 
As first-time home buyers, my husband and I were incredibly anxious about the prospect of searching for and finding a home that was a good fit for us. We also had no idea how competitive the real estate market is in the Portland area! Lisa helped us feel comfortable and secure in the process, guiding us through each step and answering all of our questions, no matter how trivial. She also humored us when we wanted to see properties that were real fixer-uppers; though we ultimately settled on a house that needed less interior work, we appreciated that Lisa accompanied us and allowed us to imagine the potential of these older homes, too. Lisa's expertise, experience, and calm demeanor were just what we needed to make our first home purchase, and we couldn't be happier that we chose her. We hope to work with Lisa again and highly recommend her!

From the moment we started the home buying process (almost a year before we ended up buying a home), Lisa was so in tune with the progress of our lender, our changing needs, and preparing us for the pace of things once we started looking. She was incredible in her ability to respond quickly and thoroughly to our emails and calls if they were about a listing we had just found or a late night inspection freak out. And when it came down to the inspection and signing process, Lisa was ever present to make sure we were able to take advantage of everything presented to us. At the end of it all we were so happy to have worked with Lisa and feel that we found a great home with no reservations.

Lisa is the best! We had very specific requirements for our new home and had been searching for over a year. Lisa asked us to list our requirements for our new home. When we found the perfect house, she reviewed those requirements with us again to make sure the home met our needs. Because we had been looking for a house for so long, we we waited to put our old house on the market until we closed on the new one. We again went to Lisa. She made suggestions to help us get top dollar. She took care of everything and made selling our first home very easy. When you’re buying or selling, you should let Lisa Hamilton take care of you!

It is noteworthy to mention that when we posted Lisa's "Hamilton Realty" sign in our front yard, advertising that our home was for sale, many of our neighbors commented that we had one of the most respected Realtors in the area. We agree. Lisa's professionalism and attention to details made the entire process of selling our home a worry-free process. Lisa understood the unique qualities of our home and enthusiastically shared these with perspective buyers. Lisa never lost sight that selling our home meant for us saying goodbye to many happy memories. Lisa helped find a buyer that loved our house as much as we did! We highly recommend Lisa to anyone looking to buy or sell their home!

We have employed Lisa Hamilton as our real estate operative for the past 14 years. Need we say more? She has guided us through the sale and purchase of four homes with expertise and good humor. She even makes it fun to do a difficult transaction. We were sold on Lisa back in 2000 when she found a buyer for our home that another Realtor had been unable to sell in a full year of trying. We consider her a good friend as well as a superb agent.

We had the privilege of working with Lisa during our recent move from Maryland to Oregon. Before ever setting foot in Oregon Lisa began educating us on Portland neighborhoods, taking our extended family to see houses and sending us listings. We found her to be ethical, honest, and continually focused on finding the best home for us—not just trying to sell us a house. We started the search unsure if the suburbs or city were right for us. It didn’t matter, it seems Lisa knew Realtors and contractors in both areas. In the end, Lisa’s deep ties to one set of Portland contractors allowed us to purchase a home before it ever hit the market. We are thrilled to call Lisa our agent and would choose her again in a heartbeat!

Lisa recently helped me purchase my first home and she was fantastic! She is great with first time home buyers and explained every step of the process. I'm a very detail oriented person so I wound up asking tons of questions, which Lisa handled with no problem! Lisa is also very friendly and personable which made working with her enjoyable and also helped when interacting with sellers. I will definitely work with her again in the future!

Lisa has helped us buy one home and sell three. She is the most efficient, energetic, knowledgeable, and personable real estate broker we have ever worked with. We highly recommend Lisa to anyone looking for the right broker to help buy or sell a home.

Ron Tobias and Pam Daniels

Lisa not only sold our home, where a previous broker was unable to, she delivered a buyer with an offer significantly above our asking price. Lisa worked impressively hard for us and was never less than one hundred percent direct and honest. Her communication was excellent. She always responded to phone, email and text messages promptly. 
 
Lisa is a skilled negotiator; she represented our interests like we were family. Her vast experience and problem solving skills made a complex and potentially harrowing closing come together smoothly. In other words, Lisa delivered an excellent selling experience with results that are second to none. If you are considering selling your home, we strongly recommend you contact Lisa Hamilton first.

We could not have asked for more. We knew we were in good hands from the moment we met Lisa. She knows the area very well and does the work needed to get the inside scoop on any listing in town. Punctual, friendly, and professional…we would recommend Lisa to anyone looking to sell or purchase a home, whether you’re new to the Portland area, or someone who has lived here for thirty years.

I have worked with Lisa Hamilton for several years. I have always found her to be one of the most professional and detailed brokers in the industry. Lisa is extremely diligent about reviewing documentation when representing sellers and buyers. She is careful to review the terms of the contract to protect her clients and to make sure the client is aware of the expectations for a successful closing. 
 
Lisa is also extremely proactive when it comes to working with other brokers, lenders and appraisers to ensure everyone is on the ball, working toward closing on time, per contract terms. Lisa makes time to be available to answer questions and help her clients through the process. I have found that Lisa’s clients have the best things to say about her service from beginning to end. 
 
I look forward to working with Lisa in the coming years as the real estate industry reflects the upcoming changes. I know she will continue to be one of those professionals who will take the initiative to learn what is required to remain successful in the changing market.

We have had the pleasure of working with Lisa Hamilton twice and we love Lisa! She is knowledgeable, committed, and professional. She is also easy to work with and one of the nicest people we know. As wonderful as it was to have our home sell so quickly, thanks to Lisa’s expertise, we now miss being around her friendly demeanor and enthusiasm.

Lisa guided us through a search and purchase of a Portland area condo with our daughter, a young professional buying her first home.  Throughout the process, Lisa was a good listener, sorting through our competing ideas about price, location and layout. Lisa was a pleasure to work with, maintaining communication about available properties and remaining positive throughout. We are thankful we found Lisa. She is ethical, diligent and has a good sense of humor. In fact, another one of our daughters is moving to Portland and she is using Lisa to help her find the right home too.

I highly recommend Lisa Hamilton. I found her to be very honest, informed, and hard-working. She returns phone calls promptly and is very knowledgeable and personable. I would not hesitate to recommend Lisa to anyone looking to buy or sell a home or land in Oregon.

We met Lisa at an open house in 1995. We truly enjoyed speaking with her. From that time on, she has been our Realtor®. Lisa has represented us in the sale and purchase of several homes. She is a very hardworking professional. Although she works with multiple clients at one time, she gives her clients the feeling that they are her ONLY client at that time…always attentive and willing to answer questions. Even if things were difficult, she was always upbeat and never let us take a defeatist attitude. She was like our best friend and confidant, yet always professional and willing to do what it took to get the job done. We absolutely love working with Lisa and will always remain in touch with her. We recommend Lisa every chance we have.

Lisa knows the market and how to get a property moving! We needed special considerations regarding occupancy, as we were leaving on an ocean cruise the day our home went on the market. Lisa came through, handling the sale over email and fax to Russia! In preparation that lead to our quick sale, Lisa arranged for staging our home with suggestions that turned out to be important – show the garden! Thanks, Lisa, for a job well done.

I first had the pleasure of working with Lisa Hamilton in 2008 when she was the listing broker on the home that I purchased in West Linn, OR. I was very impressed with Lisa’s professionalism and follow-through. I could truly tell she had a passion for the home she was representing. When I decided to sell my home in 2011, I asked Lisa if she would represent me in the sale, as I was so impressed with her ethics and perseverance. Lisa sold my home quickly and as painlessly as possible! It’s a true testament to Lisa that she has been the listing broker on this home three times! Lisa was truly a pleasure to work with….I would gladly welcome the opportunity to work with her again.

Lisa Hamilton makes the home buying process enjoyable. She is aware of current market trends, knowledgeable about the Portland area, and tirelessly works to find property that matches her client’s needs. Beyond showing homes and preparing contracts, she provides reliable connections for related services such as mortgage companies, home inspectors, and building contractors. Lisa is knowledgeable, professional, responsive, connected, friendly, fun and truly great to work with!

Working with Lisa Hamilton made our home search a breeze! We were on a short timeline, both times. As home-builders ourselves, we were very, very picky. Lisa was a quick study on learning our tastes and preferences for quality and finishes. Lisa does her homework on the market and has great relationships with other brokers. Lisa was always able to schedule “appointment only” viewings with a quick call. We liked her objectivity and honesty when it came to assessing home values. We trust Lisa’s pulse on the market and would use her services again in a heartbeat!

Years ago, prior to Lisa’s real estate career, I was her manager at Oregon Health Sciences University.  Although Lisa was a single mother raising a family and going to school while working fulltime, her work never suffered. History repeats itself. The professionalism, pride in her work, and commitment to excellence I enjoyed has come back to me in the form of her work in real estate. Three times I have needed the services of a Realtor® and three times Lisa met those needs in excellent fashion.

Lisa did an outstanding job helping me sell my condo. During a tough selling market she never seemed to lose sight of the goal. I appreciated the great effort she made and the way she kept the process as easy as possible. I look forward to working with Lisa again soon, when I purchase my next home.

If you are looking to buy or sell a house, there is no one better to help you than Lisa Hamilton. Lisa is not only a successful Realtor®, she is also a great person. When my fiance and I started to look for a home, he suggested we contact Lisa. About 10 years ago, she had helped him sell his place in Aloha and buy a home in Portland. At first, I was skeptical that any Realtor® could be as good as he claimed Lisa was.

From the first interactions with Lisa, though, I could see that he was right. She proved to be knowledgeable, hard-working, supportive, patient, kind, and was always there for us. She is heads above any Realtor® I have worked with in the past. She encouraged, but never pressured. She arranged for us to see many houses that we identified on the web, and cheerfully accompanied us even when the houses were more than an hour's drive away. She also took us to see houses in areas that she knew we would like, even before we considered those areas. She supported us in negotiations with prospective builders and helped us understand the contracts. She even celebrated with us when we at last realized that the best house for us is the one we already own, right here in Portland.

“Lisa was patient, and she listened to us…she was able to highlight the listings she knew we would like, so we only considered three homes. She made the whole thing fun…Lisa held our hand the whole way. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience.”

I recently had the absolute pleasure of representing the buyers on the purchase of one of Lisa’s listings. Lisa was very professional and responded quickly. Her level head and voice of reason helped to navigate through some difficult aspects of the transaction. I hope to have the opportunity to do business with Lisa again soon.

In 2010, Lisa Hamilton helped us sell our home during a very difficult time in the housing market and she was an advocate for us throughout the process. When our jobs brought us back to the area, we contacted Lisa again to help us purchase a home. Throughout both transactions, she remained positive, enthusiastic and we felt that she always had our best interest at heart. Her attentiveness to detail and timeliness contributed to smooth transactions and reduced stress for us during the home buying/selling process. She is dependable, kind and genuine. One can truly tell that she loves her job and she takes pride in helping individuals/families find homes that meet their needs. We can’t give Lisa a high enough recommendation, we feel like she is part of our family now!

I have to appreciate when I see professionalism and attention to detail beyond the norm. That makes doing business a pleasure in any climate...so I mean it when I say, "It’s great working with Lisa!"

My husband and I first met Lisa a year ago when she helped us purchase our first investment in real estate. She was extremely helpful in finding a list of properties that met our wish list, and helped us narrow it down to the one we loved the most. This year, knowing that we wanted yet another property at the same complex, she notified me when one came up. It was the best deal I ever saw! She put her heart into helping us get all the resources we needed to succeed in this venture and we are very pleased. We plan to sell some of our property in the next year or so, and you can bet we will ask her to represent us! All I can say is - Thanks Lisa!

From the time we decided to sell our home, Lisa was there for us every step of the way. We asked Lisa's guidance on preparing our home for sale. Her advice was detailed, well-organized and right on target. She made it easy for us to focus our efforts on the important things. Her help throughout the process was invaluable. When it came to the tasks that needed to be done to close the sale, Lisa was a great negotiator. All went smoothly, thanks to Lisa.
 
We did not expect our home to sell so quickly, but with Lisa's enthusiasm, professionalism and down-to-earth personality, she did the job better than we could have imagined. We recommend Lisa wholeheartedly.

Having purchased, sold, and moved from several homes, I am acutely aware of the real benefits of working with a proven real estate broker, a partner in the process of selling or buying a home. Lisa Hamilton is professional in every regard, deeply knowledgeable of the market, and was dedicated to supporting my efforts recently in selling my home. She provided the guidance and attention to even the smallest details that made the process go smoothly. Lisa is cooperative in every way, while providing the leadership necessary to bring a transaction to a successful close. With a very pleasing personality, she is a proven top performer in many locales. I highly recommend Lisa Hamilton for any real estate transactions.

As an experienced mortgage consultant, I can say with confidence that Lisa Hamilton is a Realtor® who truly has her client's best interests in mind. She was there from day one to closing, helping me with the process and facilitating a smooth transaction. Unfortunately, there are Realtors® who disappear after a contract is signed, only to reappear at closing, but not Lisa! I look forward to working with her again and wouldn't hesitate to refer any of my clients. Thanks again, Lisa!

We had just moved into the area and contacted Lisa on a referral from a co-worker. Right off the bat it was easy to feel her genuine passion and honesty. We found that Lisa was committed to keeping us up-to-date and educated throughout the process. When we were confronted with a difficult seller, Lisa went above and beyond to resolve the situation; she truly went the extra mile for us. After spending some time with Lisa, it's easy to get the feeling that our experience was not unique, but rather reflects Lisa's commitment to serving her clients.
