'We met Donald Falk by a lucky chance one evening just when my husband and I were discussing buying a home. Donald is extremely experienced and knowledgeable about the current housing market in Portland and all of the various Portland neighborhoods. He really took the time to get to know us. He listened to our wishes and dreams and he found the perfect 'grandma's' house for us in a terrific neighborhood with a great walking score, something we really wanted. Donald recommended a perfect price point for our offer as there were multiple bids on the property we selected. He recommended a great loan officer for us, he called and met with multiple contractors to get estimates on potential repairs so we could make informed decisions during the buying process and negotiate intelligently with the seller on repairs. He then stayed on top of the repairs we negotiated to be sure they were done in a timely and professional manner. He worked days, late nights and weekends resolving paperwork issues with the seller’s listing agent. We can't say enough how easy and what a pleasure it was to work with Donald as our real estate agent, if we had more money we would buy another property through Donald, maybe a great place at the coast ;). -Elise Maynard and Stephen Whitson

He has been at the enter of nearly every real estate transaction I have ever had. He is skilled at every aspect of the process from thoughtful advice to the nuts and bolts of the paperwork. I've always been able to rest assured that he will cover all the bases. And therein lies the thing I have valued most from Donald, a sense of peace of mind. I can say without a doubt that he will continue to be an integral part of any and all of my future real estate transactions. -Mike A.
Donald has has represented us (as buyers and sellers) in four real estate transactions.
