Two years ago my wife and I were looking for a home in the Portland / Vancouver area. Michael O'Meara was suggested to us by a friend so we followed up with a call to Michael to arrange a time to meet with us and discuss available homes. At the time we were living in Kentucky and needed a local agent that we could trust and would be responsive to our questions and concerns. After we met with Michael we knew we made the right choice. Michael met several times with our son that was living in the Portland area to look at new homes that were either on the market or in some cases homes that were not even listed on the MSL. A few times he went out on his own to inspect possible properties before he took our son out to look at for us. With in a short amount of time we found a home and property that we are very pleased with. Michael also helped us through the negotiation and purchase process and always kept us informed. If I need real estate advice or assistance in the future I will call Michael first.

Some of the potential buyers were very hard to deal with and he was able take care of any issues that we had with them or the property. He was very good at negotiation with clients and strived to get us as close to the asking price as possible.We were able to come up with a price that both buyer and seller were happy with.

I had a negative experience with another local realtor and was told about Michael by my family. I was thoroughly impressed and it was clear he listened to what I was looking for and my budget.

I highly recommend Michael as he is competent, professional, and genuine.

He answered all of my pre-sale questions such as things to do prior to putting my home on the market, staging and what to expect through closing. He left me with a feeling of confidence that he knew the market, the area, and could sell my home. The photographer did an excellent job which showed on the listings. His team was informative, and quick to respond at all times. I would highly recommend Michael and Jennifer!!

Jenny D.

Michael went over an above to help us sell our home at a very difficult time in our lives. He was very caring, very informative, supportive, helped us understand at every turn whether up or down. Without him stepping up and helping the buyer's get financing because there agent wasn't doing anything right so the sale would have fallen through. I would and have recommended him to friends who are considering buying a home plus if I decide in the future to purchase another home I will definitely ask for his help.

Barb S.

Michael consistently went out of his way to explain things to us that we were unclear about. He was always looking out for our best interest, and that meant a lot to my wife and me. Michael was very patient with us as we were first time home buyers and did not know where to start, but he gave us great guidence in our home buying process. Michael was a real treat to work with and I would recommend him to anyone trying to buy a home.

Pat & Georgia R.

Michael helped me purchase my current home. This home had been a rental for many years and needed complete many repairs, upgrading and refurbishing but had location and possible future value going for it. He helped me find the financing and the type of loan (FHA203K) that made it possible for me to purchase this home, complete the upgrades and repairs that were needed in a timely and efficient manner.

Prior to purchasing this home, we made offers on two other homes, one was a short sale and the other one had more issues than anticipated. His knowledge and experience of the short sale process helped me thru the decision making process and eventually led me to the purchase of my current home.

I started with another agent. After three months and no showings I fired her. I went with Michael based on a friend/neighbor recommendation. That was the best move. Showing started right away. We had an offer within three weeks. O course they (the buyer) asked for the moon, but Michael got things right. We agreed on a sale price within another week, with all terms and conditions worked out. Michael handled all of the inspections and other stuff. The whole process was over quick and easy. I had moved out of state and Michael made it simple for me.

Michael was recommended to us by our broker and we were pleased with his performance. He responded VERY quickly to inquiries, requests etc. His personality was amiable and made the process less stressful. He seemed to be very familiar with the area we were interested in and sent us daily updates on homes within that range. His co-worker, Liz, was also very nice to work with. She showed us homes and was very peacefully open about certain downfalls or selling points, which was welcomed! Both of them were available via text, phone or email, which was EXTREMELY helpful since both myself and husband work during the week.

Absolute professionalism. I had gone back and forth about listing my condo as I really didn't need to sell. I sought out Michael's advice about timing and whether we should go ahead and list, or wait a little longer. He showed me some different trends that I had not thought about, and with a no pressure attitude, we went ahead and listed the property. It took less than a month to have countless showings, and ultimately have the property under contract. Now we are currently in the process of looking for a home. I am grateful for the sound advice and 100% confident in my decision to work with Michael. Will recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell in the future.

Michael was very detail oriented, took excellent notes and remembered all the things that by the end of our search were difficult to remember. For example, he remembered a ton of small points of differentiation between all the places we viewed. Michael is flexible and always on time for appointments.

He was patient and empathetic with us through the process and spent countless hours teaching us the ropes. I would highly recommend anyone work with Michael. He is honest, friendly, patient and fun.
