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.

"We loved working with Josephine. She was incredibly organized, efficient, and responsive. The market was very competitive when we were buying and she gave great advice on making us stand out. She coordinated everything we needed in a 3 week close. She has a great network of very competent home inspectors, lenders etc and was able to handle a few curveballs that came our way under a tight timeframe. We would not have been able to find our house or close on it so quickly without Josephine."

"Josephine was an amazing pillar for our family during the sale of our home. She helped walk us through every step of the transaction and answered each question we had. Any time we had issues or questions for her she immediately addressed our concerns and was there for us to help. When we had questions on a stage of the negotiation she eagerly let us know our options.

We did move out of state but when we look at new places we always call her and ask if there is a way she can be involved in the process, we absolutely trust her opinion. If you are looking for an agent for either buying or selling, Josephine is as far as you need to look, she will work hard with you."

"We worked with Josephine for about 1 year plus and she helped us finding the house we wanted. She is very professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. She was very helpful during the full process and explained to us the details of buying a house. In multiple occasions she was able to arrange for us home tours even with short notice and she always accommodated our work schedule and our family needs. She knows each area very well and she was always giving us pertinent information regarding schools, local parks, restaurants, neighborhoods, commute options, etc . She never pressured us to buy a home, she was always on our side and wanted to make sure we made the right decision. Her knowledge about home values is outstanding. She provided us with an overview of the possible downside vs advantages of buying certain properties which is helpful for the future and important to make a decision. She is very easy to contact and has flexible schedule. It was a pleasure working with Josephine and I would highly recommended her excellent service.""

"We started working with Josephine over a year ago after relocating to the Portland area. After a couple of multiple offer situations in a very competitive market we quickly realized we would be in a much better buying position if we sold our previous home first. Josephine was incredibly helpful and patient throughout that process and we were finally ready to try again late this spring. With the Covid situation it made the whole process more difficult but Josephine worked hard to make everything work and listened to what our needs and desires were and soon we found the perfect home. She helped us to immediately get an offer in on the house. She guided us perfectly to just the right balance of an offer that was quickly accepted and we were off and running. She then guided us through every single step, keeping on top of everything and made sure we knew what to do and when and juggled all of the issues, dates, schedules etc. with inspections, repairs, counter offers, title company, etc. . She kept communications constant and smooth between seller's agent and ourselves as well as keeping us fully informed daily through much of it. In fact, she ended up taking care of some of the things that were probably not her responsibility but wanted to be sure everything kept moving and no roadblocks cropped up. We could not have asked for a more responsive or professional agent and she made it all seem as easy and seamless as possible. In the end we also made a good friend! We are very grateful for her hard work, attention to details, extreme professionalism, excellent communication and valuable friendship. We would highly recommend her to anyone buying or selling a home anywhere in this area. We ended up with the perfect home for us in a gorgeous remote rural area. It's exactly what we were looking for in a difficult market with limited availability of what we wanted and under difficult circumstances with the current pandemic. You could not go wrong with her as your agent. We could not recommend her highly enough and she will work tirelessly for you!"

"Josephine was always there when we needed her and went beyond that. She kept us informed during the process, was very patient and understanding of our situation, and was a hawk on the details, especially when it came to dealing with the seller and our mortgage broker.

Josephine became our friend through the process, and we are very proud to have her as that as well our realtor. We heartily recommend her for a great home buying experience."

"Josephine was a great help in the purchase of our first home in Portland. House search was not a priority for a while after the first meeting with her, but she regularly check in without any pressure and gave us information about homes that fit our needs. When we were ready to purchase a house, she dedicated her time day and night to find a right home for us.

She is very professional and knowledgeable. She is quick to respond and always answers our questions and concerns in a timely manner. We loved working with Josephine, and we highly recommend her to others."

"Wonderful since day one, Josephine is super patient and insightful with answering all my queries and she’s super flexible with time arrangements on listing showings.

I truly feel this is beyond just an agent-client relation, she’s a friend and I value the support she has provided me with. The advice provided by her really help guided me to a winning bid in a multi-offers scenario.

Definitely look forward to future collaboration opportunities with Josephine; I will not hesitate to refer Josephine to friends that are also looking to buy/sell property(s)."

"We were first time home buyers and wanted a professional buyer agent to help us with the process. That's when we found Josephine to stand out from the rest. We are really amateur home buyers but we had a feeling that we could work well together from our initial meeting. We admired how transparent she was about her experience, work flow, and ethics right from the beginning. We weren't sure yet if we wanted a lived-in or a new construction home. Josephine noticed we were leaning towards new construction homes and there were a bunch in the area made by various builders. She shared her expertise to build our confidence in choosing a quality builder, then home upgrade options, then a lender, and then inspection services that would meet all our needs. She follows through to the end even for the smallest detail that may seem trivial at first glance in order to ensure we close on time. We are thankful to have her represent us especially during times of minor hiccups with the builder. Over the 6+ months of having her as our partner, we have come to know her as a generous adviser with strong principles and most importantly, as a friend who we can share a family meal with. If anybody is looking for a partner in the real estate buying/selling process, we wouldn't hesitate to recommend her."
