Josephine is a true professional. As a real estate attorney, I can easily distinguish between brokers that know what they are doing, and those who do not. Josephine impressed me at every stage of the process. Her market knowledge and management of the purchase and sale process were exceptional. But Josephine brings more than that. She has helped my family transition into a new community, and is now not only a valued consultant, but a friend. T. Howell

It’s about quality over quantity. At Hasson, we take tremendous pride in associating only with agents who epitomize the service, communication and professionalism that our company is known for. The agents and the company are dependent upon each other to achieve the greatest success.

"My wife and I had different priorities and preferences for what we wanted in our new home. Josephine was able to work with both of us and to identify what was most important to our family. Josephine is very knowledgeable about the different neighborhoods in Portland and was able to find the ideal home for our family to grow in. From start to finish she helped us find a lender, home inspector, take us to different neighborhoods and negotiate honestly and with our best interest in mind. Even after the purchase of our home she contacts us to make sure everything is going well!

I would recommend Josephine to anyone looking to buy real estate in Oregon, her honesty and tireless efforts will be worth it."

"My wife and I had an excellent experience with Josephine. She listened when we didn’t even know we voiced concerns. She found the perfect house for us when we thought we didn’t wanna see it because of the location. She was a fierce advocate for us and our interests throughout the whole process. This was the 3rd house my wife and I bought. We had a couple of false starts as well. Josephine is easily the best rep we ever had. We never got the impression she was in it for the commission, she wanted to make sure we got exactly what we wanted. She explained everything so that it was 3rd grade simple. She always had time for questions, she chased down every concern and pushed back against anyone who stood in our way. Julie Liggins and I could not be more pleased with our champion. If you’re looking for a house, you will not find a better real estate agent than Josephine Tang to get you in the house of your dreams. Thank you again Josephine for helping to make our dream come true!"

"Our in-laws introduced her to us at first after looking at an open house she presented. She was very patient with us when we were not mentally ready to make this big purchase. She had always had the attitude that she can show us as many homes as we wanted. She always asked about our opinions and gave us her valuable advice. We are so thankful for all her help getting our desirable home. We are still in contact even after the transaction as friends."

"Josephine was absolutely wonderful! Locating and buying a home is a stressful process. More stressful when it is your son purchasing his first home. She managed my anxiety, and never batted an eye with each change in direction I took on the path to finding him the perfect home in a dynamic neighborhood. She made herself available for calls and questions. Josephine made me feel like we were her only client. Working with her, I knew that I had someone looking out for my family's best interest."
