It’s no surprise Andrea knows Portland’s markets like second nature. She was raised in Lake Oswego, with a respected real estate lineage that stretches back more than 30 years. Whether her clients are looking to buy or sell property in Portland’s east or west side neighborhoods, or further afield in the city’s suburbs, Andrea’s wealth of knowledge and local resources work equally hard in their favor.
She’s as savvy a negotiator as they come. But there’s a reason her clients will tell you she’s also “one of the most caring realtors” they’ve had the pleasure of working with. Because real estate isn’t just about buying or selling homes—it’s about real people, sometimes making one of the most major decisions of their lives. Which is why Andrea places each of her clients’ unique needs and challenges ahead of everything else.
When she’s not working or at home in Northeast Portland with Douglas, her rescue cat, you can find Andrea catching up with friends, outdoors, or volunteering her time as a court-appointed special advocate (CASA) for children.
"I can unequivocally recommend our realtor Andrea Dufresne of Hasson Realty in Portland.
Andrea was referred to us by our exceptional Bay Area realtor when we began our relocation search to Portland. I’m glad we trusted his referral.
Great judge of us as buyers - through a couple of emails, and 3 long distance Skype and phone conversations, Andrea was able to understand what we were looking for and what neighborhoods would most appeal. She weeded out all the extraneous houses and areas (hard to do as a newcomer) so that we ended up making only one buying trip!
Knowledge of the market - Andrea really understands Portland’s market - what sells and why, and when to make a stand in negotiation. We were very comfortable with her guidance during the sales negotiation.
Strong relationship network with other professionals - Andrea’s extensive network of finance people, contractors, inspectors, designers etc. was particularly helpful as newcomers to the area. The fact that so many of them went out of their way to help us based on their respect for Andrea, speaks highly of her own professionalism. We were able to get inspections and (very reasonable) repair quotes in time to negotiate a fair sales price.
Super organized AND flexible AND even keeled - while this was a difficult sale on the sellers end, Andrea never let us see any overwhelm - she was transparent in what was happening but she didn't get annoyed or outraged or upset. That in turn helped us be calm. She was so proactive in letting us know each next step that we didn't have to figure anything out. As deadlines came up, she sent us action details. This was very helpful for us as distance buyers trying to navigate many relocation details on the other end.
If and when we ever sell our new home in Portland, we will absolutely ask Andrea to represent us - she’s a realtor who’s actually worth her commission!"
