Real Estate. Real Heart.
I've been helping happy homeowners find their real estate sweet spot in the Portland Metro area since 2002. 

My personal mantra is “work hard and be nice to people.” Real estate gives me the opportunity to get to know people, to have an insight into their lives, to see how they live and to support them on their journey. Because, really, where we call home, where we want to live, is the manifestation of our personal aspirations and how we want to present ourselves to the world. Being a part of that discovery and a part of peoples' stories is what I live for. 

Whether you are relocating or re-imaging where you call home, buying and selling real estate is a mixed-bag of excitement and stress. Sure, you can spend endless hours on the latest and greatest real estate search engine trying to DIY the most significant purchasing decision of your life – but do you really want to? You need a broker BFF who knows what living room is going to flatter your curves, even if it hasn’t made it out of the stock room to the sales floor yet. You need a market insider who can find you a property love match without all the exhausting speed-viewings and open-houses.

Designations  

Hasson Relocation, Masters Circle

Brian Ramsay went above and beyond to help my husband and I (first-time home buyers) find and purchase a perfect fit home within our budget. He helped us be strategic and ultimately win our home because multiple offers were put down on it, he helped us schedule all sorts of inspections after our offer was accepted, and helped us make sense of things that can be really confusing and overwhelming during the home-buying process. He helped make buying a house be as stress free as buying a house can be. He's competent, intelligent, personable, responsive, and very professional. Can't say enough good things about him! Would definitely recommend using him!!

I recently went through the process of selling and buying a home with Brian. All the factors involved were very complicated and could have made for an extremely stressful experience but Brian took incredible care of me and made me feel like I was the only client he was working with. He works hard but makes it look easy and takes great initiative to get the best possible results while doing it all with a very professional but familial demeanor. There was never a moment where I didn't feel taken care of. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell. In fact, I have! He is currently working with my friend on the sell of her home. :-)

— Deb Hiller

What can be said about Brain probably wouldn't do him justice. He answered every question I had, walked my wife and I through every step of the process, and most importantly helped us figure out what we really wanted in a home. He was there when we needed him and even when we didn't. When we closed he was the first person to let us know, even before the lending company. The best part of all was after we bought our home he didn't change his number and never speak to us again. He's not only gone out of his way on several occasions to make sure needed repairs were taken care of on the house, he also took time to cover what maintenance would need to be done to keep the house in good shape. A special note, as a veteran I'm used to over promising and under delivering. Brian took time out of his schedule to help us locate furniture and appliances for our house from other clients who wanted to sell or donate their things. Now not only do we have the home of our dreams, we also have extremely nice things to furnish what would've been a very empty home of our dreams. I couldn't imagine what would've happened if we hadn't been lucky enough to find Brian for all this

"Brian was the best. He found me an unbelievable condo in the Pearl in probably the most competitive pricepoint. He was right on top of anything that came available, and had a ton of experience with all of the different buildings. He has a great knowledge of the market and is an expert negotiator. The end result was I got exactly what I wanted, and a great price. I would have been happy just based on his responsiveness, but he brought a lot of skill that I wasn't even expecting. Super happy customer right here"

"I would highly recommend Brian to anyone if you want a trustworthy realtor who is highly skilled, effective in negotiations, a good communicator, and is fun to work with!

Brian sold my SE Portland condo in just a few weeks, and for more money than I ever expected, since I bought when the market was high in 2008.

As soon as the condo was sold, Brian helped us purchase the lot where we are now building our dream home. Brian went above and beyond to help us do our due diligence with the county to confirm that we could build our house, have access to utilities, and find the costs of permits.

Throughout the whole process, Brian made it as stress-free as possible by communicating often (by phone, email, and text), quickly fixing any bumps in the road, and giving trustworthy advice without being pushy. It is clear that Brian and his whole Hasson team are experts at their job!

If you are looking for a high quality realtor who will support you throughout the whole crazy process of buying and/or selling a home - Brian is your man!"

"Brian has been with us since the beginning of the search for our first home. He brought a wealth of understanding of the market, knew exactly what we were looking for in a home and made sure we were knowledgeable of every step of the process. He truly delivered!! Not only did he do his job incredibly well, he made sure everyone he recommended we work with do the same. We had such a fantastic experience with Brian 3 years ago that he was the first person we thought to call when selling our home. You cannot ask for a better realtor!!"

He did his research on both my home and those around my neighborhood, he was patient, and a delight to discuss the process with.

"Did not show me the properties I requested to see, but rather showed properties in the same area, but ones he was curious to see. He did not take me seriously and told me after one day of showings that he did not want to work with me. I had cash in the bank and was a ready buyer. His loss. I found what I was looking for and bought thru someone else. Hubris of youth perhaps..."

"We, the buyers, had abruptly experienced a lack of communication with the seller's realtor for more than 4 days during early stage of the process. No explanation was given to Mr. Brian Ramsay to whom we kept asking the reason behind. Brian was understanding our uneasiness and tried very hard to contact the seller's realtors; as a matter of fact, this happened during the Independence Day long week end.

He was very helpful, very honest, reliable, kind, and trustworthy. I'd strongly recommend him to my friends. It was my pleasure to receive his service this time."
