Adrian Olmstead Presents: Luxury Urban Living from realtoradrian on Vimeo.

 

             A good salesman is one part artist, and one part analyst.

            That’s something I learned in my prior vocation, at Chrome Industries, where I served as the Head of Sales over their international scope of business. To work in sales means developing a razor sharp intuition - and to manage sales means an understanding of larger market forces. That means reading the numbers and finding the story, so that you can get the best for your client. Wrestling with both takes a well-rounded strategy, and I’m excited to bring the strategies I’ve honed to the real estate industry.

            Originally from Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, I’ve also lived in Texas, but it was my wife, a native Portlander and Adidas employee, who convinced us to settle down and raise our twin daughters here. The natural beauty and culture of Oregon is unbeatable, and at this point it pains me to imagine myself as anything other than a Northwesterner.

            It’s that love of this region that motivated me to leave the travel heavy world of Sales Management, and begin my own venture in real estate. Helping others find a home and a place to dwell for their own families, building relationships, and putting my strategic mindset to good use are all prospects that excite me. If that sounds like something you’d like to work with, please don’t hesitate to reach out.

Designations  

PMAR HOMNW.com Certified Specialist

We ran into some problems with the buyers demands and I was favorably impressed with Adrian’s negotiations. He saved us $3500 by being skillful. His posture is professional and strong but personable as well. I would recommend him to anyone!"

— Judy P

Adrian should write the playbook for the new mold of realtors! Not only did he get us out of a bind, with our current listing, he sold our condo at a higher price than originally planned (by previous realtor.) He is super positive and pro-active which were two critical traits for us, as we are both very busy working/traveling. He thought of creative solutions + took the initiative to stage our condo so it looked beautiful and modern. The staging highlighted all the best attributes of our condo. Our overall experience with Adrian was seamless and easy. I would HIGHLY recommend Adrian Olmstead as a realtor. I'm sure we will use him again!"

— Marla B

I will say that you blew the realtor competition out of the water. You are by far the most professional and helpful realtor I have come across...

— Shannon

"We found Adrian online and he turned out to be fantastic and over our expectation. He is patient, responsible, and thoughtful. We lived out of state and that made it a little complicated to arrange appointments, communicate and sign contracts. But he handled it super smoothly. All the documents are prepared to be e-sign-ready and 1-click away.

Adrian was proactively providing good advice in bidding strategy, while completely respecting our choices as well. Great execution in making it happen in a flexible way."

"Adrian took what normally could be a stressful experience and turned it into a fun learning experience for myself and partner. There wasn't a time during the process that I second guessed we had the best realtor on our side. He was very informative in how the process would be handled and made sure to run through details that normally would be skipped over. Buying a home is an investment as well as a large life change. He balanced it all with ease and professionalism. I would recommend Adrian to anyone looking to buy."

"Adrian must be as good as it gets in realty. From first impression to house closing (and beyond), we were very impressed by the quality of his care for us as clients -- not to mention his insight into the homes we were looking at. He made himself constantly available for showings and in each home had a tip that we never would have arrived at ourselves. Adrian is patient with the process and takes his time in asking questions and evaluating feedback to make sure he knows where you are coming from. Given that Adrian could easily get by on personality alone, it is amazing how he pays attention to the details... After walking through a certain home, Adrian glanced back at the siding and mused, "I wonder if that is Louisiana siding: if so, there was a recall on that kind of siding, and it is something worth investigating." He goes on to explain the specific risk factors with Louisiana siding and the history of the recall, as if he were reading off the realtors' encyclopedia for that entry. I told my partner in private that this was too good of a catch to be true: Adrian must have known an extra little bit about this particular siding, and he must have been showing off his knowledge. Turns out he was right about everything. I use this example because it is characteristic of him: his keen eye, casual wealth of knowledge, non-intrusiveness, and commitment to the details.

All in all, Adrian was a pleasure to be around, a pleasure to tour with, and the kind of agent that enables you to sit back and trust totally that everything is taken care of, down to the minutiae. We were too lucky to have him!"
