Print Agent Bio

I’ve lived and worked in Portland all my life. Growing up in Irvington as the daughter of a realtor, I developed a deep appreciation for the well-built homes, tree-lined streets, and unique personalities of our city’s established neighborhoods. It was only natural that I chose a career that allows me to use my knowledge and enthusiasm to help each client find a home they’ll love or sell a well-loved home.

While I know Portland’s neighborhoods like old friends, I understand what it takes to close deals. My clients rely on me for honest advice, market expertise, and tireless persistence. They know I will listen to them, tell it like it is, keep them in the loop with regular updates, and follow through on my commitments every step of the way—all with a smile and a positive attitude.

The opportunity to work with people I enjoy is one of the reasons I love being a realtor. Many of my clients are now close friends. And just about everyone I work with has been referred to me by a neighbor, coworker, teacher or friend. It’s high praise, and I work to earn it every single day.

"Erin is that rare, "old world" realtor, polite and professional with all parties yet sophisticated and savvy when it comes to the business of real estate. We quickly came to trust her sincere interest in the best outcome for us as sellers AND buyers as she patiently provided her time, expertise and perspective on the market. With calm demeanor, Erin ushered us through the preparation for selling our Alameda home providing practical advice and connections to local, trusted tradespeople. She listened carefully as we described what we were looking for in our next home; understanding our "must-haves" so well that we purchased our new home in record time - and we are discerning (aka picky) people. Throughout the process of buying and selling Erin kept us calm and focused, as she was always in the best of humor and a true pleasure to work with. We highly recommend Erin!"

— Melissa B.

Erin's service, intelligence and knowledge are all great. But that's not the most remarkable thing about working with her. It's her sense of knowing how the deal progresses, knowing what we'd be interested in and what we wouldn't be, knowing immediately what houses we shouldn't be looking at and her overall patience. The icing on the cake was coming home to champagne, snacks and a roaring fire in our new home on the day we closed. Erin is a consummate professional.

— Victor

I had met Erin socially before and knew she was an expert in the Irvington neighborhood. We were looking for a fixer there and I asked for her help. We ended up abandoning that idea after some research, and Erin was very helpful in deciding which direction to go. She helped us find the perfect house in another lovely neighborhood that we LOVE! She was awesome all the way through the process and totally on top of everything. I have been through many real estate deals in the past and this experience was, by far, the best. I had no idea a realtor could be so incredibly helpful. We had a delightful experience with Erin, her professionalism, her laugh, her thoughtfulness, and her vast experience.

— Judy

Erin came highly recommended via an out-of-town agent/family member trying to find us the best representative in town, and she did not disappoint. She was always in touch, even when on vacation and after hours. Her assistant was also very helpful and responsive on the rare occasion that Erin was unavailable. Her knowledge of the Portland area is outstanding down to restaurant recommendations after a busy day of house hunting. We ended up with a far better home than we could have imagined thanks to Erin's strong negotiating skills and connections with other realtors. Our only complaint would be that as first-time home buyers, we could have used a bit more hand-holding when it came to financing and our options. I honestly couldn't imagine working with a better realtor than Erin and cannot recommend her any more highly. Do yourself a favor and go with Erin.

— Michael

Erin is the best. I have worked with Erin on buying houses for over 12 years. What I like about her is she understands what I am looking for and doesn't waste my time. She calls me when something appropriate comes on the market, does all the research on the house before she contacts me, and is willing to go the extra mile to address my questions. Since I do not live in the Portland area I have to trust her judgement and experience. I have never been let down. She is very hard working and is available when I need her. I would recommend her highly to anyone.

— Stuart

Erin is an expert in her field. She is extremely professional and steered us in the right direction, which was extremely valuable being new to the area. Erin quickly assessed our style and type of home desired and did not waste our time showing us homes that were not suitable, like so many other realtors do. When it came to negotiations, she guided us to making the best offer that would gain acceptance over a competitive bid. We will use Erin for future real estate needs and highly recommend her!

— Karen

My husband and I recently relocated from another city and Erin was instrumental in guiding us to our new home. She is extremely knowledgeable when it comes to neighborhoods and the buying/selling process. Erin also has a knack for finding the perfect fit for each client. We would recommend her to anyone interested in buying or selling a home.

— JoAnne

Erin guided us through a major transition, helping to quickly sell our home in North Portland while simultaneously helping us find and buy our new home. Her expert guidance throughout the process helped it all go smoothly and reduced our stress levels. Whenever we had questions or needed advice on contractors or other services, she was right there with great recommendations. Erin knows the Portland market and is an excellent realtor. She was wonderful to work with and she makes it look easy.

— Greg

All I do is buy, sell and rent houses. When I am transacting in the Portland metro area, the only agent I call is Erin Rothrock.

— Eric

Erin is a really great resource and support for any home purchase. She is extremely professional and will do whatever it takes to get you the right home. We have recommended her to all our friends and family and she has helped them purchase homes is Portland as well. She is patient and assisted us in making informed decisions in a timely manner. We love our new home and our experience working working with Erin Rothrock! :) Thank you!

— Corinna

Erin is the best. You tell her what you want and she goes out and finds it. She is honest as can be so you never feel like she's trying to sell you something with which you are not going to be happy. Erin really is a phenomenal realtor and human being! As an aside, she gives really great client presents and puts on fantastic parties throughout the year!!

— Cara

It's simple--If you want to buy or sell a home choose Erin Rothrock. She knows her business and is a professional in the truest sense of the word. From pricing and her recommendations for what was necessary to get our house ready to go on the market, through her negotiating skills, to her ability to keep everybody in the deal through closing and actually get the house sold--Erin was amazing. She is trusted and respected by her colleagues as a pro who is easy to work with and is a person of the highest integrity. Her communication skills are superb. We wanted frequent updates on the process and she and her team provided them beginning to end. There are many RE brokers to choose from but few who truly deliver. Erin is one who delivers in spades. I cannot recommend her more highly!

— Jon

Having used several realtors in the Portland area, I feel well qualified to rank Erin as hands down the most professional, capable, responsive and hard working realtor I've met. She was recommended by my brother and from the moment we met I was convinced that she would get the job done. Sure enough, in the time-frame she promised (which was an impressively short two weeks) our house was fixed up, staged beautifully, and on the market with a number of offers above asking on the first day... and this was mid/late-November! And if that wasn't enough, she handled the next few weeks of contract negotiations and repairs in great fashion so that i believed we walked away with the maximum return possible received on the property. As one who finds it naturally difficult to hand over the reigns to a service on any transaction of significance, I would gladly let Erin take full control of our next purchase/sale without a second thought. She is that good.

— Brad

We really enjoyed working with Erin. She was extremely helpful and professional. She helped us prepare our home by making suggestions but leaving all of the decisions to us. We felt like she listened to us and understood our needs. She was so responsive and available. We know she must have many clients but she made us feel like we were the only ones. She was generous and kind. We sold our house in just a few days for over the asking price. We have already recommended her to several people and will continue to do so. She is top notch, wonderful in every way.

— Jenna

Erin has helped us purchase two homes now and we would highly recommend her to anybody interested in purchasing in the Portland area. Erin and her assistant Nicole have extensive knowledge of the local neighborhoods, home styles and most of all the ability to negotiate from start to finish. Both handled our requests in a timely manner and we never felt out of the loop. You won't be disappointed if you choose them.

— Collin

Erin helped us buy a new home and sell our current home. We can't say enough good things about Erin. She is extremely responsive, insightful, genuine, knowledgeable of Portland neighborhoods, an excellent communicator, and a skilled negotiator with very strong marketing skills. Her suggestions for home repairs, improvements, and showing presentation made a huge difference in selling our home, and led to multiple offers over listing price. Erin and her team were there throughout the process to answer any questions and offer any needed guidance. We highly recommend Erin to any buyers or sellers--those who are buying their first home, to those very familiar with the process. She and her team were an absolute pleasure to work with. When/if we are in the market for another house in the Metro area, we would not consider going anywhere else. You shouldn't either!

— Kate

Erin is really great at her craft. She is professional yet casual, informed yet approachable, and comes to the table with a ton of history and local experience. I appreciated her willingness to make accommodations to my very crazy schedule, and how she was always happy to answer my super basic questions! I am a very novice home buyer, and Erin was patient and kind in her approach to teaching me about the very complicated landscape of real estate transactions. She was very understanding when my ideal home profile evolved (from suburb to city!) and quickly adapted to my new wishes. I think Erin really gets excited about finding clients a place they can call home, and genuinely won't be satisfied until the client is. I found a condo in my own building and thanks to Erin, was able to put in an offer that was competitive and reasonable. She gives sound advice, and i have no doubt is respected by buyer and seller agents all over Portland. I'm learning that this really makes a difference!

— Rebekah

During our 8 month search for the ideal home, Erin was there every step of the way. And as first time homebuyers, we had a lot of questions - Erin was very thorough and quick to respond. We most appreciated her honesty, deep knowledge of Portland's neighborhoods and extensive resources. I'm sure it won't be the last time we work with her! Erin was very professional and responsive. Because of her help and expertise we were able to purchase a home far beyond our wildest dreams. We were able to do this from out of the area and could not have done it without her.

— Phillip

We were specifically looking for a house in the Concordia neighborhood and Erin gave us expert advice on what to look for, price and inventory in the area, recent sales, online resources, finance options, etc. When we found two houses that we were interested in, Erin helped guide us in the right direction and get us a house that we literally fell in love with and made an offer on the same day. She has a great team that she works with and no phone call, email, or text message ever went unanswered. I trust and respect Erin and her whole team. We are also having her list our current home for sale and will recommend her to friends and family.

— Tim

Our experience with Erin was the best we have encountered and we go back to her and recommend her widely to our friends and family. Erin is great at discerning what you want as well as very knowledgeable about what is on the market. She knows Portland really well and introduced us to new neighborhoods that fit our requirements Her attention to detail and various aspects of real state and home decor are outstanding. We felt like the information coming our way was constant, and thorough with lot's of help in finding a direction in terms of neighborhoods and value. We cannot recommend her enough.

— Zuzana

Erin will be your greatest asset if you are either buying or selling a home. Her local knowledge and real estate expertise are peerless. She is very organized, prompt in all her dealings, and a joy to work with. Erin is an effective communicator and negotiator and she will deliver the best possible results. Lastly, her integrity and candor were refreshing and will insure her of a successful career and many life long friends.

— Christina Cole

Erin Rothrock sold my home. Now, that's what a real estate agent is supposed to do, right? But the breadth and depth of what led up to that sale is still amazing to me. My old and wonderful Craftsman Bungalow was terrific, and I'd made significant improvements, but when I decided to sell, I need help with refinishing an upstairs floor, landscaping, hauling away of unneeded debris, significant advice on timing, many things, and I needed to do it all quickly. Not only did Erin have a ready list of expert craftspeople to make all this happen, right away, it all went seamlessly. The house was prepared, staged for sale, and THEN she worked her real magic: getting it in front of eligible buyers. I had six full price offers in the first hour it was on the market. It went for $25,000 more than the asking price in a bidding war. I tell this story, and recommend Erin at every chance, because she listened, she understood what I needed, she knew what to do to make my house sell, and did it all with alacrity and professionalism. One of the smartest things I've ever done in my life is listen to Erin about how to get my house ready for sale. I advise you to do the same: buying or selling, Erin has the savvy, experience and encyclopedic knowledge that serves you well.

— Dan Wasil

We have worked with with Erin twice, once selling a house in 2001 and again buying a house in 2005. Most recently(2011) she showed us houses when when we thought of buying a bigger house to have my parents move in with us. In this last situation we ended up not buying. She brought a "straight talk" approach to all these experiences. She did not tell us what we wanted to hear, but gave her honest assessment which I think is what makes a good realtor. My wife and I would recommend Erin without hesitation!

— Scott Powers

We recently needed to sell my elderly mothers home. My mom was somewhat anxious about the stress of all this and not wanting a prolonged process so we were hoping for a speedy sale. During her estate sale we were approched by a developer who was interested in making an offer. We asked Erin about this and she asked for a couple of weeks to seek other similar offers and ended up getting two additional offers at a higher price. Bottom line was that we ended up with a very quick sale at a higher price netting more money in the end for mom and less stress. Erin was outstanding in working with me while keeping my mom informed and relaxed throughout this whole process.

— Steve Boeh

Erin's dad helped us buy our first house almost 25 years ago, and Erin continues his tradition of amazing service to her clients. We've recommended her to many of our friends for many years, and every one of them raves about her. A relative had Erin list her house near ours in NE Portland, and it sold the same day it went on the market for more than the asking price. Erin grew up in the neighborhood and knows it better than anyone. While Erin hasn't listed or sold our home (we've lived in the same one since her Dad helped us buy it), I don't think the note provided by the Zillow site under "Service Provided" accurately reflects how much Erin has helped us by helping our friends and family.

— Jim Dixon

Love the woman and her gifts and her knack. Two daughters and a precious friend have all been most happy with homes Erin has helped them find and buy. She knows how to hear and respond to locals who know Portland well and our Philadelphian friend who mostly had to look and buy on trust. We also treasure our neighbors two doors away who found our block with Erin's guidance. She comes through!

— Chris & Sarah Thomas

Our experience with Erin has been nothing short of amazing. She has represented us both as our Buyer's Agent and most recently as our Listing Agent. In each case, she made what can be a stressful and overwhelming situation seemless and even a lot of fun. We have and we will continue to recommend Erin to anyone who is looking for someone who is more than just competent. Erin is serious about delivering the best experience and outcome possible. She listens and she cares deeply. Thank you Erin for all the ways you have showed up for us.

— Steven Corbin & Erika Overhauser

As real estate investors and with our personal properties, we have known and trusted Erin for years. We have repeatedly recommended her to friends and colleagues, who have unfailingly found her to be a consummate professional and a terrific human being! Her integrity, market knowledge, attention to detail, and energetic approach to problem-solving make her the cream of the crop.

— Gordon Davis & Vicki White

Erin represented our family as both a Listing Agent and a Buyer's Agent and we had a wonderful experience. She is a consummate professional and spent a lot of time listening to us to identify exactly what is was we were looking for. She didn't waste our time showing us homes that didn't fit our criteria, but wasn't afraid to encourage us to think outside the box when needed. She is very well connected in NE PDX, and has listed or represented buyers in so many homes in the neighborhood over her 20+ years in the business, that she has an encyclopedia of knowledge regarding the pros/cons of many many homes in the area. Once we found the home that we wanted, we felt Erin did a tremendous job moving the process along efficiently, while demonstrating savvy as a negotiator to get us the best deal possible. Erin has earned our trust and all of our future real estate business. Bravo!

Erin is a phenomenal real estate agent. Her patience and persistence are outstanding. My partner and I have very particular tastes and Erin has continued to find us houses that we have seriously considered. While we have yet to purchase a house (see "patience" above), Erin continues to work extremely hard to find us the perfect home. She really is amazing!

— Cara Frey

Erin truly cares about what is best for her buyers. If a particular house isn't right for you, she'll tell you. Buying a house doesn't feel like a sales process, because she doesn't 'sell' you. She's about as real as it gets.

— Kristin Alderman, Ticor Title

I'm a contractor and I called Erin to see if she knew of anything on the market that might work for me. She had a couple of houses for me to look at right then, the first time I called and I ended up buying both of them. Here is a Realtor who makes you feel like your purchase is the only on that matters. Erin always returned my calls, and she was such a hard worker throughout the entire process.

— Jason Enders, Contractor

Erin was available to us and she was much more professional than other Realtors I've worked with in the past. What a refreshing change.

— Deborah Kafoury, Mult. County Commissioner

We interviewed two other Realtors in addition to Erin and she clearly came out on top. Erin was a great listener. She let us talk and it was very obvious that she was hearing what we had to say. She really cared about us and it was clear that she did. Erin made herself available and was always willing to help, listen, answer questions, drop by or whatever it took to solve a problem. She made things easy! Erin was such a great pleasure to work with, we were very lucky to have her for our Realtor.

— Dale Green, Professor

You can't begin to know how much Erin helped us during the home buying process! Her patience, knowledge of a city we knew little about, and instinctive ability to know what we wanted made this an easier, more stress free and downright pleasurable experience than we ever could have imagined. Plus, Erin is just pretty darned fun to be around.

— Byron Coulter, Attorney at Law

Since I wasn't living in Portland when I was selling my home there, I needed a Realtor who could do the 'extras' for me and keep an eye on the house. Erin Rothrock was willing to serve as the project manager, overseeing the process of getting the house fixed up and dealing with the various contractors doing the work. She was personable and always willing to help me out.

"We really do not even know where to begin or how to adequately express how delightful our experience was working with Erin and how much we adore, respect, and appreciate her. This will be a bit of a novel because we just cannot say enough wonderful things about Erin. Our home-buying experience was nothing short of 100% successful, truly enjoyable, and effortlessly easy, and that is all because of Erin.

We met Erin when we attended an open house--at that point we thought we were about a year out from buying a home and we were just looking for fun and as research. We adored her right off the bat--her expertise and knowledge were immediately apparent (in all things real estate, and especially as it pertains to NE Portland and Irvington, where we wanted to buy eventually), and she was just lovely to be around (friendly, warm, calm, laid-back, and appealing in every way). We were probably most struck with how un-pushy she was--she told us that she viewed part of her job as helping us to do market research, and that she would be happy to show us places as often as we liked for the next year. That was not the vibe we expected from a real estate agent.

We begin asking Erin to show us listings we found online, and she sent us suggestions too. She and her team were always extremely responsive to our feedback on the types of places we were interested in and super quick to get back to us. We went to see several properties with Erin, and we were blown away by how knowledgeable she was, pointing out things we never would have noticed or known to think about. And it was again noteworthy how non-pushy she was--it never felt like she had any agenda in getting us to buy a place that she showed us, instead it really felt like she wanted us to find the perfect place for us.

We did find the perfect place that we fell in love with, and Erin's decades of experience were invaluable when she was able to tell us what a rare find we had on our hands. That begin the ultimately successful process of securing funding (Erin works with a lender who is just as professional and skilled as she is), making an offer, negotiating the offer in a bidding war, going through the inspection process, and closing on the property. I cannot emphasize enough how incredible Erin was throughout this process. She was effortlessly calm at the times we were most stressed, putting us at ease and making us feel like everything was manageable. She was extremely skilled in negotiating against offers that we easily could have lost the house to. And she always gave thoughtful and reasoned advice that led us to get just what we wanted. We ended up getting everything we wanted on a house that we love in what was really a seamless and easy process. I know it would not have been that way without Erin.

We were also consistently impressed by everyone Erin works with and suggested that we use--from her own employees, to her lender, to her inspector, to her handymen, Erin works with the best. She was like a one-stop-shop for all the most skilled and pleasant professionals in the business.

Now that our process is over, we are truthfully sad that we won't get to hang out with Erin anymore. If you are thinking of hiring Erin, seriously do not think anymore and hire her now. You will be so happy that you did."
