Print Agent Bio

Alyssa and Michael moved to Portland from Williamstown, MA in 1972.

From 1972 through 1997 they lived in 6 homes in 6 different Portland neighborhoods.

In 1997 they downsized from a large home in the West Hills and became “Pearl Pioneers”.  For over 15 years they lived and worked through the Pearl District’s incredible transformation.  As a result, the O’Rourke’s have a vast knowledge of the Pearl’s history, each condo building’s personality and the nuances of city living.

2011 brought them a great opportunity to sell their city townhome and build a dream home for their “next chapter”.  They purchased a one level ranch style home in a small subdivision of 25 residences built in the 1960s.  They completely re-built the home and the surrounding gardens to their design.

Michael & Alyssa have over 35 years combined experience as Real Estate Brokers.  They are familiar with all segments of the greater Portland market and have represented both buyers and sellers in virtually every neighborhood and price range.  They are both familiar with the relocation process as it relates to people moving to Portland.

Alyssa is a transplant from Greenwich CT.  She is an avid golfer, enthusiastic cook, voracious reader and crossword puzzle whiz.  She is an active volunteer for several not-for-profit concerns.

Michael was born in Portland and was raised in Tacoma WA.  Prior to joining The Hasson Company he had a 35-year career in the advertising agency business.  He enjoys golf, reading, gardening and keeping his 32 year old BMW in running order.



Alyssa and Michael Orourke are detail oriented real estate agents. They are excellent at determining a homes value and are very respectful in honoring their clients comfort level while determining a purchase and sale price. During our last home purchase our family always felt completely confident in The Orourke’s advice and council

Alyssa you were extremely helpful in the buying process and went above and beyond! I couldn't be happier with the home and had a very positive purchasing experience thanks to your assistance!

This is a fan letter. My wife Patsie and I recently had the incredibly great experience of working with Alyssa and Michael O'Rourke in the sale of our home in the Montclair neighborhood of Southwest Portland. From the initial stages of developing and evaluating the marketing strategy to beyond the closing they remained steadfast in working with all parties to complete a very pleasant experience. I'm in my 43rd year of commercial real estate and have worked with many, many real estate professionals in all aspects of transactions. Given my experience I would put Alyssa and Michael in the very top of the profession. They worked very hard to keep our transaction smooth. Every purchase and sale has bumps along the road. They handled them professionally and smoothly - at every turn. They get it done. They care. I welcome the opportunity to discuss Alyssa and Michael and our experience. Any time. Sincerely, Roberts M. Dant

Alyssa and Michael were wonderful to work with - from start to finish. Very accessible and responsive. They helped us stage and price my mother's condo for an expedient sale. We were so grateful for their time, help and energy.....and we would certainly use them again.

Alyssa and Michael went above and beyond to sell our home quickly and seamlessly, providing everything from a thorough market analysis and frequent open houses to sage advice during negotiations and inspections. As a board member of public companies, I’m accustomed to a high level of professionalism and service and the O’Rourkes provided that beyond all expectations. I couldn’t recommend them more highly.

Again, Jeanie and I want to thank you and heap you with gushing praise for your help in securing our new life with the sale of our long time home. Your incredible professionalism, patience, attention to detail, responsiveness and deep knowledge of the Portland residential real estate market were invaluable to marketing and closing on our home. Every inquiry was handled with the utmost care and concern and the actual closing took place in very short order and was smooth as silk. Now in our new home with a new situation, we again say we couldn’t have done it without you and we are here to offer testimonial to all with whom you would care to share this. We want all those looking to change residences to benefit from your wisdom, experience and great attitudes. Please use us liberally as a reference.

Carol and I were apprehensive about selling our home in a down market. Alyssa and team helped us believe we could sell and price the home to sell in the current market. The team prepared wonderful information about our home, including a terrific virtual tour. Active promotion and showing of the house resulted in a full price offer within four days! Perhaps the most important aspect of service by Alyssa and team was active monitoring of three closings within two days to finalize sale of our home and purchase of our new condo near downtown Portland. Both selling and buying went better than we could possibly have imagined because of the great service we received from Alyssa and her team.

Alyssa and Keri are a great team and I would recommend them to anyone. They give you the effort of two people for one commission. They are both honest and professional. John Hisatomi

1. Exceptional service! Couldn't have been a better experience! 2. I am absolutely amazed at their patience as we looked at close to 50 homes and were very particular about finding an older home with character but that wouldn't require a full renovation. They found the perfect house for us! 3. The O'Rourkes are truly amazing! We covered the city of Portland to find the perfect house! On top of that, they handled all of the details including the inspections while we were still in California! Hope these work for you and thanks so much for such wonderful service! Greg Hoover

A good realtor is an asset. A realtor, who is also a friend, is a treasure. How lucky for me to have found both in you. Your business-like approach combined with your delightful attitude make buying a house easy and enjoyable. You certainly know the market, as well as how to get through the paper work! I didn't hesitate when my sister asked for the name of a realtor. I recommend you with absolute confidence.

— Mary Narlock

Alyssa and Keri are wonderful realtors. They know everything and have the best taste! More importantly, they listen and have so much experience that they can help you figure out what space and home is really going to feel right. Their viewing suggestions are amazing. Finding a home is a journey of learning about yourself and what makes you happy. We strongly recommend this team.

My husband and I used the team of Alyssa and Keri of Hasson Realty to represent us in a purchase of our current home. I personally was very impressed with the speed and efficiency of the team. The communication with the other parties involved (title companies, other realtors etc.) and the ability to answer all the various questions we asked was delivered with ease and accuracy. I felt well taken care of when it came to negotiations for the price of the house. Clear explanation of the process, as well as good support. The team had many available resources to list when it came to having an appraisal and house inspection. I have referred them to many of my friends and will so in the future.
