Testimonials

Staging Works - Pending in 5 days with buyer coming through the Open House!

"Yvonne was right on from start to finish on both the buying and selling side of my transaction! She pushed me to stage my condo which paid off. She had an open house and we had accepted an offer before the brokers open house! She was with me every step of the way and a huge help in both buying and selling."

- Jeanne Whitbeck - Sold a condo & bought SFR in SE.

Will recommend again and again!

"Yvonne was ON IT from start to finish. We felt like she had our backs the whole time. She is honest, knowledgable, responsive, proactive, positive, protective of her clients, and is just all-around an excellent realtor. She showed us all around the NE Portland and wrote 7 offers for us before we found the one that stuck. Most Portlanders know that NE is NOT an easy market for those with a starter home budget, but she encouraged us not to give up despite continually getting beat out by cash offers. Now that we found the one, we're absolutely thrilled with our home, it's perfect for us. Even after our offer was accepted, she continued to fight for us and negotiate ways to improve our deal. She also works with other top-notch professionals (Mortgage companies, home improvement contractors, title companies) so we always felt like we had a team of experts working for us. I'd recommend her again and again!"

A Pleasure to work with!!

"It was a pleasure working with Yvonne throughout the listing, Showing and Closing stages of the transaction. She was prompt to return phone calls and emails, and a delight to work with."

Highly recommended!!

"I'd highly recommend Yvonne for any real estate and CPA needs. Specifically, her knowledge of the condo market, comp calculations and presentation helped us get the offer we wanted in practically no time at all. In purchasing a home, she was a great communicator with all parties involved, did the heavy negotiating, and just made it easy on us in general. Her knowledge of numbers didn't miss a detail and maximized our return and instilled our trust in her. Trust was paramount, allowing us to let go and make it a relatively pain free process. Thank you"

Great Experience

"I can't express enough about the great experience I had with Yvonne Blewett as my realtor in both selling my home and buying of the new one. Not only did she sell my home quicker than I was even hoping for (3 days, unbelievable but true!) she also helped me stay calm through the whole process. As a business owner my free time is limited and she made the whole process painless and more efficient than I thought was possible due to her thoughtful and focused attention to every detail. I highly recommend her.

Truly one of the best!!

"Yvonne is truly one of the very best I have ever worked with. She continues to remain at the top in her field and is an excellent negotiator. She is constantly in class learning to better herself. She has helped me increase my assets through the purchase of multiple real estate deals/purchases that were sometime complicated and all at the same price without a complaint. If you are in investor or private buyer/seller, I give her an 11 out of 10. Thank you Yvonne for the hard work and attention to the details."

- Dale Van Lydegraf - Investor

Yvonne knows how to work this crazy hot market of multiple offers.

""Yvonne came with great reviews from a trusted friend and we were happy with Yvonne's assistance immediately, thus worked with her for a few months to sell our condo and buy a house.

In this real estate climate, frustration is imminent...but Yvonne stays so positive and is very patient. It's much easier to stay upbeat in this market with her on your side.""

- Kelly & Seth, Portland, OR (Buyer)

Out shines them all!

"Yvonne is a pro all the way. We had previously listed our condominium
with another realtor for over nine months with no luck whatsoever., We
contacted Yvonne and contemplating an additional remodel. We took her
advise and not put it in MLS. Through her net-working and diligence it
was sold in approximately three months with a total cash deal. We have
used numerous agents in Oregon and California and she outshines them
all. Make no mistake---you will never regret calling her."

- Sherrie Anderson

Selling the Strand in less than 30 days!

"Yvonne is professional and efficient. She understood my condo's HOA due to prior experience and was able to deal with many of the questions that our buyer had without taking my time. Yvonne also proactively dealt with possible issues in my deal before they occurred."

Great Experience

"Yvonne was wonderful through the entire process. We were relocating from Ohio and had limited time to view houses and make our choice. She did a great job communicating with us prior to our arrival and had several homes in the style of what we were looking for set up to view. She was very knowledgeable of the area, making sure she took the time to show us spots she thought we may be interested in. When the time came to make our offer she guided us through the process and again was very organized and efficient. We were on a very strict time crunch being in a relocation situation and in town for only a few days. Having been in this situation several times in the past I can say Yvonne made it as smooth as could be. We ended up with a house we love, and Yvonne was nice enough to follow up and ensure the house was in great shape prior to our move. We have already recommended her to several people."

Highly Recommended!!

"I am currently working with Yvonne to buy and sell in these challenging market conditions. She is a smart Realtor and a CPA. She is witty and a tough negotiator. If you like quick electronic or verbal communications, you will not find anyone more on top of her game! I appreciate this responsiveness, especially when timing is so important! Overall I find her highly skilled... a 10 in getting the transaction done. I strongly recommend her to assist you with your real estate and tax related needs.
