Print Agent Bio

After spending 5 years in the Events Industry, where planning large corporate events for 65,000+ attendees was “just another day at the office”, having a keen eye for detail has always been crucial to my success. Managing client expectations, vendor relationships and project timelines is what I love to do! I take pride in authentically representing client interests and appreciate that this career allows me to create meaningful connections through the home buying and selling process. I hope for the opportunity to work together - I will be with you every step of the way.

 

As a Lake Oswego High School graduate, I have lived in the Portland area for a collective 23 years. I received my undergraduate degree at Santa Clara University, with the honor of playing Division I soccer for the school’s prestigious program. Portland truly is “home” to me, and I treat the opportunity to share this beautiful place with others as a gift. There is something to be said about enduring months of rain for the beauty of a sunny day in Oregon. 

 

One of my favorite hobbies, outside of binge-watching Fixer Upper, is teaching Power Yoga, a form of Baptiste Yoga. I am a 500-hour certified yoga instructor, and truly love the feeling of authentically leading others through a yoga practice to connect movement and breath. I believe yoga is for everyone and embrace the opportunity to teach classes for high school athletes, friends and family, as there are so many pieces of yoga that translate into the real world.

Hasson Relocation

I am new to the Portland Metro area, and after monitoring the market from my old location for 4+ months, I was a bit worried how I would secure a new home matching my specifications in the current low-inventory, high-demand market. Cali stayed in contact with me prior to my arrival, sending encouraging messages during my transition of selling a home in another state and moving to Oregon. The day after I arrived, we hit the ground running with showings the next two days. Although the properties I'd scouted online did not fit my needs, Cali used this time to get a true sense of exactly what I was looking for. That same week, she learned of a promising listing coming to the market in a couple of days. It checked all of the boxes that I was looking for, and after Cali's help negotiating, I was under contract one week after my arrival. My closing was today, and I have to say that Cali was there every step of the way! I asked a lot (too many?) questions, and she was patient and thorough, repeatedly easing the stresses of the transactions with helpful clarifications. I'm so thankful that Cali Reis was my agent!

It was such a pleasure to work with Cali her team at Hasson in buying our very first home! Market expertise- 5 stars! The early 2021 market was difficult for us firs-timers on a tight budget. Cali was helpful in finding homes for us that met our criteria and scheduling viewings for homes (A LOT of homes) that we were interested in. Her responsiveness and communication was excellent through email, phone and text! Group texts were definitely key in our success and we always felt comfortable reaching out! Negotiation skills- wonderful! We wrote for several homes that had multiple offers and each time we were given strong advice on how we could make our offer more competitive. Yes, and we finally got our dream home! Through rain, snow and COVID, Cali and Hasson were there for us!

— Christina C.

We have been searching for our first home for 9months. This market has been insane, yet through all the chaos Cali has guided us to our dream home. She ensured we were prepared for every reality and every outcome. Cali is highly effective communicator and it gives her the ability to adapt to any situation. This gave us the confidence to trust our process and carry the necessary patience to get us to the finish line. Even through this chaotic market, my experience with Cali was nothing but perfect.

— Matt

Cali guided me through my first time homebuyer's experience. I am so thankful I got to work with her! She was incredibly patient with all of my questions. She is extremely knowledgeable about the Portland market. The Portland housing market is intense. Amidst the fast-paced environment, Cali was a steadfast presence. She was in constant contact with me through all steps of the process: educating me about the home buying process, what the Portland market is like and how it compares to national trends, finding listings that were suitable for my needs, crafting an effective offer, scheduling an inspection, helping me understand the inspection report, and keeping all parties (e.g., lender, title company, seller's agent) informed during and after closing. Cali is a zealous advocate and I am so glad she was in my corner. She is meticulous and made sure that my offer was rock solid. She anticipated both what the seller wanted and what I needed. In an intense housing market, I do not think you can be successful in buying a house without someone like Cali.

— Sei U.

Our experience was professional and excellent from the beginning; Cali made us confident in our decision through the closing... and finally she followed up to verify our ultimate satisfaction. She was responsive, efficient, personable and extremely caring. Definitely a strong recommendation from us!

— Kevin W.

Cali was great to work with and very easy to communicate with. She was always very organized and thoroughly prepared for everything, and enthusiastically welcomed questions or feedback. She made the whole process easy, coordinating everything from recommending a fantastic loan officer to finding a large assortment of vendors to get bids on repairs during the inspection period. She had the whole process under control so we were never overwhelmed.

— Cosima S.

Cali was incredibly helpful throughout the process of us buying our first house. She was friendly, quick to answer any questions we had, and very insightful in guiding us through to daunting process of buying a house for the first time.

— Gabriel B.

Cali stepped in to help us when we were having a difficult time in this historically crazy market. She was supportive, knowledgeable, and can-do throughout the entire process. We had a contract fall through and Cali walked us through the entire thing, never giving up hope that we'd find the right house in the end. Sometimes we felt like giving up, but she never wavered! Her positivity and support helped us navigate this market, and find our house in the end. She's smart as well as kind, and she knows her stuff. I'd recommend her to anyone!

— Tawny H.

Cali has been instrumental in the purchase of our new home. Cali listened to everything we wanted. She made sure she provided us with all the right information at the right time. She was proactive every step of the way. She is extremely organized and has a keen eye on the data element of purchasing a home. This is so helpful in the current crazy market. She kept us moving forward until we found, negotiated and had a house under contract. She stayed focused as we moved thru the elements of purchasing and attended our official closing. I couldn't have asked for a better partner.

— Gretchen H.

Working with Cali to buy my first home is one of the BEST decisions I've ever made! The home buying process can be quite daunting if you've never done it before, but Cali was able to make it highly organized, seamless and dare I say FUN! All of her above skills contributed to me finding and purchasing my literal DREAM home. Cali was able to get me connected with the right partners, helped me save thousands of dollars and dozens of hours, and was an incredible sounding board throughout the entire journey. I never felt pressured into doing anything I didn't want to do. Not once did Cali settle for "good enough" - exceptional is the only level she knows and she proved that every step of the way. If you are not sure who to trust in this very important journey of buying a home, I truly cannot recommend Cali highly enough. You won't regret it!

— Sara W.

Even if Cali weren’t a fellow PNW, West Coast Conference, soccer champion boss, we still would have had a great time because she’s kind, warm, and so easy to connect with. As a first-time home buyer, I had quite literally no idea what I was doing and Cali took every stupid question I had and turned it into a great way to share information. She shared her opinions when I asked explicitly for them and was quiet when it was obvious I was soaking in some information. She made a process that should have been stressful easy and, dare I say, fun? Thank you Cali!

— Julia K.

Having Calisa on our team was a dream. She was gracious with our many questions, deliberate with negotiations and truly set us up for success. Every step or hurdle was met with a solution and positive outlook. Selling a home is stressful- I can't imagine not having Calisa through it all!

— Melinda L.

If you are looking for a realtor who goes above and beyond, I highly recommend Calisa Reis! My husband and I were missing living on the lake and decided it would be nice to have a small place in the same complex where our daughter owns. There were no condominiums for sale, so we enlisted Calisa to find an off market property for us. First she came up with an action plan and shared it with us. Her strategy was so creative and went far beyond “knocking on doors”. In just over a week, she presented two opportunities to buy where it appeared there were none. Calisa is prompt, positive, knowledgable and comes with a “can do” attitude, which is everything one can hope for in a realtor.
