Print Agent Bio

Born and raised in Los Angeles and a Graphic Design B.F.A Cal-State Fullerton University Grad, Ray owns and runs a family-owned real estate brokerage in California; actively working together with his mother, a veteran Realtor® in Los Angeles for over 2 decades.

While growing up in a highly aggressive real estate environment, this gave Ray the competitive edge to be able to flourish in any given market, especially in the Portland-metro area. Ray later on expanded his business to Oregon and Washington then eventually moved to Portland in 2019 due to the high demand.

As a licensed Real Estate Broker in California, Oregon and Washington, this background gives him the unique ability and perspective to help translate Portland and Vancouver markets to fellow California transplants. Ultimately, Ray's true passion is helping first-time home buyers and prefers to take his time in educating clients on the step-by-step process of home buying by making it as seamless as possible, but most importantly, fun!

Outside of real estate, Ray is obsessed with personal growth, health and wellness, and is constantly looking for the next best place to either read a book or to have a healthy bite. Ray is the epitome of sweet and charming but also funny. He’s an all-around lovable guy who actually aspires on becoming a stand-up comedian someday.

Give Ray Castro a call and see if he's the right agent for you! Careful, he might make you laugh.

"All other reviews are well deserved. My husband and I worked with Ray to get the home of our dreams and we have moved into our new home. Homebuying is not an easy or necessarily smooth process, and things happens. Ray guided us and provided any help and answered questions while being extremely patient with us. More than anything, I appreciated that he was available when I had a question or an issue. To us, it felt like Ray was that reliable friend you to go to for advice or to just complain about. He would listen patiently and help find a solution. He went beyond what was necessary, even providing places we can go eat. Furthermore, he would check in with us from the time we closed until after we moved. You can't ask for anyone more helpful than Ray."

"I am writing this review as a first time home buyer.
Ray Castro of Hasson Company Realtors that we (my wife and I) had had the pleasure of working with was most professional, courteous, obliging, diligent and efficient.
Ray worked diligently right from our initial meeting to be most forthcoming with any relevant information regarding our inquiries, queries and any clarification needed on every step of the entire process (which can be rather daunting being a newbie to the home buying process). As promised in our first meeting, Ray held our hands and guided us through to the closing day (immense relief). Ray also interacted directly with all parties concerned and keeping us informed every step of the way simultaneously using foresight and making all of the necessary changes/extensions required for a smooth closing of the transaction.
I would highly recommend working with Ray as your real estate agent!
We are very happy, satisfied proud new home owners!"

"My wife and I were first time home buyers and we weren't sure exactly what to expect. Ray patiently explained the whole process (in bite sized pieces, sometimes repeatedly) and made it as painless as possible for us. We believe the most important qualities about an agent are knowledge, responsiveness, and willingness to fight for the client. Ray exemplifies all of these. Would highly recommend, especially if you're a first time home buyer like we were."

"Raymond was an incredibly huge help while assisting in my search for my first home in Los Angeles. He was extremely knowledgeable of the neighborhood and the local businesses in the area, and was always willing to go the extra mile in terms of meeting my high, at times difficult expectations. (With a smile on his face to boot) :) I highly recommend him when searching for you next home - you will not be disappointed!"

"Ray was an amazing Realtor! I was a first time home buyer and Ray was EXTREMELY patient with me throughout the entire process. He was very organized and planned each showing efficiently so we didn't spend too much time driving each time. He also created a thumb drive for me with all my documents so that I would have an electronic copy to stay organized. I would highly recommend Ray for your next home purchase!"

"Ray is a great guy! He helped me a lot in looking and buying a home. I had minimal knowledge in real estate and how it works, and he explained and answered all my questions. I’m glad he was on my team when I bought my brand new house!"
