Christy helped us tremendously as our real estate agent. We were relocating from the Midwest, where the real estate market was worlds different from Portland’s. We made the arguably crazy decision to house hunt while still in Ohio, relying on Christy to visit properties on our behalf and send us detailed video tours. Ultimately, we bought a house in the Portland area, never having physically seen it ourselves! Our comfort in doing so speaks volumes to the trust we had in Christy. In what could have been a very stressful home buying process, Christy helped us every step along the way with excellent, timely communication and a friendly and often humorous demeanor. She had a great grasp on what we were looking for in a home and neighborhood, and gave invaluable guidance as we negotiated in this competitive market. I particularly appreciated how she kept on top of the mortgage broker, title company, and others to ensure we closed as soon as possible. I really felt like she was our advocate and she went above and beyond in every way. We couldn’t be happier with our new home nor with the top-notch real estate service that helped us to get here. I highly recommend Christy Marshall!
My wife and I could not have been happier with our experience with Eric Holmes and Christy Marshall. We actually went through a couple agents prior to meeting Eric and Christy. Once we started working with them we knew right away it was a great fit. Their customer service, knowledge, and communication was outstanding. Both of them were in constant contact with us. They would immediately reply to a text or phone call at any given time; even when one of them was having a baby! This was our first time buying a home and both of them took the time to explain the entire process from start to finish. Compared to other agents, we were impressed how much they actually worked for us. So many agents today put the workload on the home buyers to do their own research online. Eric and Christy actually sought out homes for us and were very proactive. I appreciated the fact that they weren’t trying to find just any home, they truly understood what we were looking for and at times would recommend against certain homes based on their experience. We truly believe they put our best interests first. Lastly, we would not be home owners if it weren’t for some amazing negotiating. At the time we were searching for a home the market in the Portland area was very difficult for buyers. Eric and Christy immediately went to work when we found our home; out negotiating other bidders. Their quick actions and communications with the selling agent and us are truly why we have a home today. We think Eric and Christy are a rare find and would definitely recommend them to anyone. Hopefully we will be working with them again in the future!
We cannot say enough good things about Eric and his team. He was our agent for selling and buying and did a masterful job guiding us through a complicated process. We found our dream home and on Eric’s advice, we wrote a letter to the owners hoping that this would help our case. It worked and all Eric had to do was sell our place in 3 days and spend countless hours negotiating and making sure we could secure our house. Well, he did, and we were amazed and his responsiveness, ideas, and just overall ability to navigate a difficult situation with a smile and genuine caring for helping us make the deal. We would hope you look his way because you won’t be disappointed, a true gem and the epitome of a relationship Realtor.
I would like to acknowledge Christy Marshall’s expertise as a realtor. I have personally counted on her during some of the biggest decisions and transitions of my life; buying and selling my first home! She is comforting, communicative and competitive; great qualities in a real estate agent. She seems to have great rapport in her field as I also felt I was in good hands with the team of people she works with. I’ve recommended Christy to friends and family as well and will continue to do so!
A big thanks to Christy Marshall-Real Estate Broker in Portland, OR and Eric Holmes for the attention, patience, encouragement and skills needed to sell our home of 10 years and buy a new home we love just as much. 1940’s houses tend to come with surprises and by buying and selling houses from the same era we had double the chance to encounter the unexpected…but we could not be happier with the results of our transactions. An excellent experience. I would recommend Christy and Eric and Dwell Realty to anyone – they went above and beyond in all ways. Thanks you guys!
Eric is an incredible Real Estate Professional. My boyfriend and I worked with Eric for about 4 months while we were searching for a home to purchase in the North Portland area. Eric was more than willing to see homes with us whenever it fit our schedule (which was typically on the weekend since I travel and am rarely in town during the week). Eric was great at listening to what we wanted in a home and then looking through listings (even expired listings) to try to find a home that would meet our requirements. Eric did a fantastic job at communicating, setting expectations and ensuring that we were taken care of every step along the way. I was impressed with the amount of knowledge and the number of resources/contacts Eric had at his fingertips during our inspection/repairs etc. phase of buying our home. In addition to being a superbly competent and professional, Eric is incredibly personable and a pleasure to do business with. We would gladly choose to work with Eric again for any future purchases – and would definitely recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a home! Great job Eric!”
Our family has had the pleasure of working with Christy Marshall at Dwell twice now, and I cannot say enough positive things about our experiences. I thank my lucky stars that she has been the person to help us through recent life transitions, as the whole process was as stress-free as is possible when buying a new house, moving with several small children, and otherwise making a big, crazy change. Christy was always available to take the reigns, make the calls, and move the process along so that we could focus on keeping life running throughout.
Additionally, in a separate transaction she was able to assist my retiring mother from out-of-state find an incredible house within her extremely tight price range (no small feat!!!) within walking distance of downtown and the south waterfront. Without Christy’s finger on the pulse of the market, we would have never seen this opportunity as it was a property that would have easily flown below our radar. We so completely scored with this house, and it never would have happened without Christy.
Christy is simply a fantastic, down-to-earth, FUN human who is engaged in the community and deeply wants people to find the home that works for them. She has become so much more than our real estate broker (designer? project manager? therapist? child entertainer?), and we will absolutely call her whenever we have a real estate need in the future.
