Print Agent Bio

Long after the papers are signed and the boxes are unpacked, I want my clients to remember their real estate experience as fulfilling and successful. My enthusiasm for real estate and my commitment to service have earned me a strong base of referral and repeat clients.  Born and raised in Portland Oregon, I temporarily left Portland to attend college at Santa Clara University.  After graduation, I spent a year volunteering in the Jesuit Volunteer Corps, working as the Outreach Coordinator for the Greater Boston Food Bank in Boston, MA. In 1993, I returned to Portland to teach and coach at Central Catholic High School while earning a Master's degree from the University of Portland on the side. In June of 2000, I joined the Hasson Company Realtors, a move that has enabled me to combine my knowledge of the Portland area with my experience of serving others. As one of the Hasson Company's Top Producers, I am grateful for the referrals and repeat business that I have earned through my many satisfied clients. I'm proud to be a member of both the Portland RMLS and Willamette Valley MLS.

Hasson Relocation, Masters Circle

My wife and I have used Gene on 6 real estate transactions over the past 17 years, both buying and selling homes. Our most recent was the sale of our home in 2016. Put simply, Gene is a consummate professional and an excellent advocate on either end of a transaction. When I first worked with him at the beginning of his career during the purchase of our first home, I knew his personality, ethics and honest approach would serve us well. Now with hundreds of deals under his belt, I can say he has only gotten better with age and experience. His knowledge of the metro area is unparalleled, and his vast network of qualified vendor relationships has made all of our transactions incredibly smooth. His approach is not transactional- it's relational. It's why we have used him so many times over the years, and why he has so many long-term clients. His years of experience as a teacher makes his approach and interaction more "consultative". He won't tell you what to do, but layout recommendations in a way that makes you truly understand the "why". As a consumer, this is really great stuff. I put a huge amount of trust into this relationship. His role as a trusted advisor has been well earned!

Gene was awesome to work with! We bought our first house from him in February 2014. He listened to our wants and needs in a home. The whole process went very smoothly. In the fall of 2016, it came time to sell our first home and look for another. It was a no brainer to go with Gene again. He handled the sale of our first home and the buying of our new home. Once again, another smooth process. If we ever need the help of a realtor again, we will be going with Gene!

— Amy M-M:

Gene has your interests at heart as his first concerns from first phone call through closing the deal... highest recommendation. He saved me major money both in selling our family's house after our mom's passing to negotiating a great deal for me on my new house. Great guy on top of it all.

— Chuck B.

Gene helped my family and I relocate from Hanover, NH to Portland. He is incredibly knowledgeable about the area and truly cares about his customers. Gene not only helped us find and purchase our dream house, he also helped us navigate local schools to find the right fit for our three daughters. I highly recommend Gene.

— Greg F.

Gene was fantastic to work with. Knowledgeable and patient throughout the process. We could not have picked a better agent to help with our relocation. I would recommend Gene to anyone without hesitation. Thank you Gene!!

— Jay & Alicia

My wife and I were so lucky to find Gene as we bought our first home! About a year ago, we used a website to request more information on a home and ended up being put in touch with Gene. It was such a great fit. Gene bent over backwards to meet with us, to help us refine what we were looking for and to ease us through the process. Without ever telling us what to do, he enabled us to make a great buy. Gene was quick to return calls and e-mails, made appointments as soon as possible and always met us with a smile. He is also clearly very ethical and a true professional. You'll be well-served by working with Gene to buy or sell a home!

— Anthony P.

Gene helped us buy our 5th home, so we've worked with a lot of real estate agents over the years. Gene was the best. As a family of four, we often had to bring the kids with us to look at houses and Gene was very flexible, understanding, and patient. I guess being the Dad of 3 boys has helped him develop some empathy for parents who are trying to make an incredibly stressful decision while also negotiating impatient kids. One of Gene's great strengths is his sense of humor. Who doesn't want to have fun while house hunting and dealing with the work of buying and selling a house? Finally, in addition to being knowledgeable about homes and the real estate market, he was able to provide great referrals for every thing we needed related to our new Portland home, from a fabulous mortgage broker, to a housekeeping service to clean the old house at move-out time.

Three things make Gene stand out as a fabulous real estate agent: (1) Gene has expert knowledge of the real estate business as both a seller's agent and a buyer's agent and he shares his knowledge and experience in a thoughtful and helpful manner without being patronizing or making it seem like it's a chore to help you. Gene is looking out for you and your interests and you never forget that. (2) Gene has strong people skills which really come in handy when negotiating deals or handling emotional situations (and really, aren't all real estate situations "emotional?"). Gene recognizes that people need someone who is honest, sincere, and looking out for their best interests. Gene is all of those things for the people he represents. He communicates well, is thorough in everything he does, and he keeps his client's interests above everything else. (3) Finally, Gene will help you arrive at the best outcome for your situation. As a buyer's agent, he offered much-needed advice to me as I struggled to re-enter the Portland market after having been away for many years. Gene provided the thoughtful and non-emotional perspective we needed when we felt mostly fueled by emotion and uncertainty. He was really great. Gene helped us find the right house and negotiated with a difficult seller on our behalf. He impressed me at every turn and I felt truly grateful for this service when we sat together at the closing and he turned to me and said, "well, congratulations on your new home."

Gene Moreland was the perfect real estate agent for me. Being a first time buyer, I was a novice and quite clueless about the process and the expectations. Gene was incredibly patient, supportive, and helpful. Words that come to mind to describe his work ethic include: reliable, industrious, and conscientious. Gene taught me so much about how to evaluate a house and what key issues to keep in mind when viewing a house. In the end, I found a great house. I couldn't be happier with my selection. I owe it all to Gene! You won't regret selecting him as your agent.

— Marty W.

Gene is an awesome, trustworthy, hard-working realtor. He helped us buy our first house, then nine years later sold it for us (in one day, for way over the asking price, in a down market!) and helped us buy a new house. We have never had reason to doubt him, his advice is solid and always in his clients' benefit. He was very patient with us through months and months of searching for the perfect home. He also communicates well and promptly. I'd highly recommend him to anyone in Portland looking for an ethical, knowledgeable and successful realtor who is also simply a really nice guy.

— Emily & Jeff

I'd recommend Gene to anyone looking to buy a home, particularly first-timers. My wife and I might have been the pickiest people he's ever worked with. We had a hard time finding an affordable house that we liked and in a neighborhood that we liked. Gene was extremely patient and honest, and never once pushed us to get into a house we might later regret -- even pointing out potential flaws that we probably wouldn't want to deal with. We'll definitely be working with Gene again the next time we start house hunting.

— Jason Q.

Gene was a fantastic resource during the purchase of our first home. He proved himself to be highly knowledgeable about home construction, the character of neighborhoods, and the potential downsides of several properties we considered. I appreciated his easy-going yet professional demeanor, and I would highly recommend him to anyone considering a real estate purchase or sale.

— Levi & Cydelle

Gene works well with families looking to buy or sell their home. He has an excellent knowledge of the Portland metro area.

— Karen & Skip

Gene is an excellent real estate agent with an amazing work ethic. Despite a difficult housing market near the end of 2008, Gene consistently worked very hard to sell my home and he has my highest recommendation. Though I was out of state during the process, Gene kept me informed and updated on a regular basis, thus proving to be dedicated to an outcome benefitting all of the involved parties.

— Sean P.

Gene is a hard worker who always puts the interest of his clients above all else. He is professional and dedicates his days to making things happen for his clients.

— Kevin S.

I have worked with Gene over the past six years. Gene works with an extremely high level of integrity. He is always working in the best interest of his clients and puts their needs as his top priority. Gene is honest and trustworthy and I would recommend him to family & friends.

— Andrea M.

Gene makes house hunting fun! He is knowledgeable and has a wealth of referrals that make the process easy. His recommendations for our mortgage broker, home inspector, etc. were incredibly helpful and made the whole process painless.

— Tina A.

Gene makes buying a house a fun adventure. He's very patient even when dealing with an overly analytical personality that picks at every detail (my personality). He has never made me feel rushed and I have always gotten great information when asking questions.

— James J.

Gene has an outstanding knowledge of the market, and intuitively knows what sells and what doesn't. He helped guide us through the home staging process which enabled us to sell our home to buyers who viewed it just hours after the listing hit. And this was in an extremely difficult real estate market. He is a great communicator, and worked hard to get the deal done for all parties involved. He has my highest recommendation.

— Amy & Mark

My husband and I purchased our first home in December of 2009 and absolutely loved working with Gene. He was incredibly knowledgeable and patient, even when we wanted to look at "just one more" (and even when that "just one more" turned into ten more). He helped to point out the good and the potentially bad things about a house, but always made sure that we knew that the decision was ours. After searching and searching for that perfect house, we're now in a home that we absolutely adore, and we are so thankful to Gene for helping us find it. We couldn't have done it without his hard work, patience, and encouragement. Should we ever decide to buy another house, Gene will be the first person we call.

— Sara & Matthew

Gene helped me get into my first house in November 2009. He was patient with me as I was on a budget and looked at quite a few houses. Gene has great insight within the housing market as we looked in all areas of Portland for the gem that we ended up making an offer on. I will be using Gene again when the time comes, which will be sooner than expected as we got a great deal on my house!

— Joel B.

Gene helped us sell and buy a home in very short order. Great guy -- couldn't recommend him more highly.

— Kai & Abbie

Gene was fantastic to work with -- and we would highly recommend him! Super knowledgeable and well-balanced, especially considering we didn't have the easiest of transaction conditions to work under. Gene was honest, straight-forward, professional, trustworthy, and caring. While I am so incredibly glad to no longer be in the market for a new home, if I were I wouldn't want to embark on the journey with anyone other than Gene Moreland by my side.

— John & Dominique

Gene is an industry veteran who comes armed with enabling experts in home inspection, insurance, and home improvement/handy man. He helped negotiate terms for a bank owned property, and helped us navigate the otherwise murky waters of a reverse auction. He has a "can-do" attitude and always goes the extra mile to make the home buying experience very satisfying.
