“Allow me to eliminate any stress associated with moving or house hunting, so you can enjoy the positive moments of this experience.”

--Megan Banta

Buying or selling a home often coincides with an exciting and transitional period in one’s life, and Megan takes pride in assisting her clients through this journey. As a third generation realtor, Megan Banta is a product of her environment. Her real estate insight and expertise stems from years of exposure and first- hand experience. Megan thoroughly and effectively communicates with clients on all aspects to ensure they are fully informed and involved every step of the way.  Without the burden of stress, Megan’s clients are given the opportunity to focus on the options she provides and ultimately make a well-informed decision that best suites their needs and lifestyle.

Megan grew up in Lake Oswego and graduated from Linfield College with a BA in Elementary Education. After graduating college, Megan moved back to the Portland Metropolitan area and she is looking forward to developing new relationships within the community where she was raised. 

 

This is an overdue thank you for everything that you did for me! Yes, you sold my house (my home for 25 years), but you also answered my every question, held my hand, calmed my nerves, shared my frustrations and definitely shared my excitement. You took my calls and answered my text messages at all hours of the day and night, and and expertly handled potential problems when they came up, before they became big problems! I am extremely pleased with the outcome of the sale of my home, and the level of commitment that you have to be available and present for every step of the process. If I could, I would write across the sky….”Heather Coleman and Megan Banta are a TERRIFIC Team! They are the BEST in the business!” I will miss you both!

— Nancy G.

We were able to work with Megan to sell our home in Clackamas. We knew the market would be really good and Megan made the sale such a fun and easy experience for us. She coordinated photos, held open houses (with treats!) and did all the heavy lifting with negotiations so we could focus on our move into our new home. If you want an agent that is attentive, proactive and goes the extra mile….and will even bring you coffee to the signing, use Megan!

— Cindy & David

I cannot express how fantastic Megan has been through the process. I am a first time home buyer and I circumvented most of her normal, very useful processes, in that we went to look at homes before having an initial meeting, put in an offer the next day, and had it accepted that night. A record! She was there to go over everything with me, guide me through things that were not a part of her job, and even now, months later (I'm a bit delayed in my review!) she's raring to go in my corner as I work through homeowner issues. I would recommend her to anyone.

— Nicole

Megan was very helpful in find the right place for us. She did a great job in identifying the needs we have and the budget we have and helped find the right home. She is always reachable and very prompt in responding with the correct answers.

— Mallik

Megan and Heather are absolutely top notch. As business owners, my wife and I certainly appreciate the dedication and commitment, not only to home buying, but to us as well. Megan went above and beyond to meet us at many homes until we finally settled on exactly what we were looking for. In an extremely competitive market, buying a home with a VA loan is usually not a first option for sellers to accept. However, neither Megan or Heather ever once tried to persuade us to obtain another loan option. Megan was extremely patient, and her professional knowledge and advice was absolutely the best. Consider this the highest recommendation one could give.

— Patrick Bright

Megan was very responsive. She always returned calls and emails within minutes. She was delightful to work with and has a good sense of humor. Megan is also very professional and handled potential areas of conflict with tactful diplomacy. She has a strong understanding of the real estate business and helped us through the process of selling our home. We are happy to recommend Megan.

— Paul and Joanna

Megan was very helpful throughout our entire experience. We're first-time homebuyers, so Megan made sure that we understood each step of the home-buying process. She was easy to reach and was timely in her responses to our questions. Megan was a joy to work with, full of energy and knowledge!

— Kayla and Andrew

Megan helped my wife and I buy our wonderful Portland home. She is truly fantastic to work with. She knows the Portland market intimately, and was willing to take all the time necessary to show us around, and to educate us about all the different neighborhoods and areas. Megan is very knowledgeable, and always available. With her great smile and enthusiasm, she is ever concerned with your happiness and satisfaction. When we found our beautiful home, Megan was there every step of the way protecting our interests and ensuring a successful experience for us. Thank you, Megan. You're the best! We will certainly highly recommended you to all of our friends and family when they need to buy or sell!

— Bill & Susan

Megan helped my husband and I sell, then buy our home! She was awesome to work with! We have already highly recommended her to all of our friends when they need to buy or sell!

— Beth and David

Megan helped me purchase a home in the extremely hot, and very unforgiving Portland housing market. She was ready to write up an offer on a moment's notice which is a MUST in this market. I always felt like Megan was looking out for me no matter what. I would not hesitate to recommend Megan to anyone if you need to purchase a home. She'll put you in good hands.

— Mary

Megan Banta and her team sold my home and got the job done within months. The winning offer was presented same day the house was open to the market. I would highly recommend her team to anyone selling or buying a home. Thank you Megan and Hasson team! Your team is the best and it works efficiently and in harmony as a well tuned high performance engine !!

— Alan

Working with Heather and Megan is a true pleasure. They are very knowledgable of the Portland and Lake Oswego area and have a great reputation with all the area agents. They are accommodating, flexible, stay open when you ‘change your mind a million times’ and are very good about explaining the realities of buying and selling. I have never felt like a burden (even though I still haven’t purchased) and they are always happy to see or hear from me. This kind of service and support is rare and very much appreciated.

— Elaine, Future Buyer

I just wanted to write you a note to say what a pleasure it was working with you. My husband and I have bought a few homes over the years in several states, and working with you was a treat. You were always so willing to accommodate our schedule and meet us on weekends and evenings. Your cheerful and sunny smile made what can be a stressful event fun. With your help, we found the perfect home for our needs. Know that I will recommend your services to anyone looking for a home in the Portland area.

— Carolyn

My wife and I have lived all over the U.S. and have purchased many homes. Megan Banta was by far the best agent we have ever had. She is professional, honest and has a heightened sense of urgency. She made the entire experience pleasurable. Great job Megan. We love our new house.

— Dan, Buyer

I have been Megan's Managing Principal Broker since she joined the company, and I’ve really appreciated the opportunity to work with her. Megan has a high level of enthusiasm for real estate, and clearly provides a high level of service for each of her clients. She quickly learns the best practices, and immediately implements them to her clients benefit. From feedback I've received, her clients are very happy to work with her! It’s clear that Megan really cares to do everything possible to create a good outcome for her clients, she really cares about each one of them. Each of her clients should be glad to have the opportunity to work with Megan when they are buying or selling their homes!

— Ward Spears, Principal Broker

We had the pleasure of working with Megan Banta for the sale of our previous home and the purchase of our existing home. It is a challenge to be concise in describing all Megan has done for our us. Megan has the unique ability to make us feel as if we were her only importance. She is truly resourceful, and patient. She cares very much for the clients she serves and follows through with everything she commits herself to. We recommend Megan to anyone buying or selling a home!

— Carly and Jason

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.

— Mike Hasson, President & Owner
