Print Agent Bio

Twenty-two years ago, thanks to a friend’s advice, I chose to work in real estate and I haven’t looked back.  Since then I’ve helped rock stars settle down, engineers find the perfect floor plan, senior citizens go modern and first time home buyers make fantastic investments.  

My mission is to provide my clients with a professional real estate plan tailor-made for their individual needs...  Please contact me and I’d be happy to meet you. 



When I was in my mid 20’s I had a little dream to buy a house. Back in the day of getting the newspaper and planning your route of open houses, you meet a TON of realtors. During this preliminary search is when I first met Ronda Joseph and we clicked. A year passed as I saved up money for a down payment and then I was as ready as I could be. After meeting the hoards of realtors the year prior, Ronda’s name slipped my mind, but I knew I had to find her. In to Hasson Co I went with only a description. And our search began. I could go on and on, but, I trust her like a sister. She has my deepest respect like no other in the industry. She is smart, savvy, and experienced. She always listens and has your best interest at the forefront. She knows the market, how to strategize and goes to battle for you. It’s been eleven years now and last month I purchased my third house with her and I couldn’t have done it with anyone else. I am proud to recommend her to everyone I know. She recently helped my business partner purchase her second home and I knew she was in good hands. I honestly can’t say enough good things. Thank you Ronda for everything! You have helped make my dream a reality.

When I decided to move to Portland from Los Angeles, it was very important for me to find the right realtor since I wasn’t going to be able to come up every weekend to look at homes. Ronda was a referral and she far exceeded my expectations! Honestly, I feel like I hit the jackpot with her. She made me feel completely comfortable throughout the whole process and went the extra mile for me which was wonderful since I was not local. I have worked with realtors before and never worked with someone who was so invested in ME and not just the sale. Ronda is so amazing - she wants to find the right home for her individual client, no matter what the budget or personal needs are. She’s by far, the best and I count her amongst my friends now. Not only is she trustworthy and kind, but she is one of the most genuine people I’ve ever met and I feel lucky knowing her. I can’t imagine going through the home buying or selling process without her.

I have had the pleasure of working with Ronda during both the buying and selling process. Ronda's intimate knowledge of the Portland market, her skillful marketing and negotiation skills and friendly and positive demeanor made her a delight to work with. I would not hesitate to recommend Ronda to anyone seeking an experienced and professional realtor in Portland.

After living overseas for almost a decade, my husband, daughter and I moved back to Portland on a quest to find our "forever home". We were lucky enough to be introduced to Ronda, and now consider her to be both a trusted advisor and a friend. Ronda's strengths are many. She knows the market inside and out, bolstered by being a long-term Portland resident. She is approachable, and works with many different types of clients. She is an excellent listener, and as a result she readily understands her clients' needs and wants. She is patient, tenacious, and absolutely a pleasure to work with. If you are looking for a superlative agent and partner, look no further than Ronda Joseph.

We interviewed three realtors before listing our house and Ronda made us feel that our home had the potential to sell at the price it deserved. She was positive and excited to sell the house with us and took the initiative to do what it took to get it into shape, for we were out of town sellers. I guarantee the house wouldn't have sold for the asking price and wouldn't have sold in the time frame we were looking for if someone like Ronda hadn't taken the reigns and responsibility. We couldn't be happier with the service we received from Ronda Joseph.

Ronda makes you feel like you are the only client that matters to her. That's her gift. She makes the whole process of searching for a house and making a real estate deal so much easier because you know she is advocating for you the whole time. I have bought two homes with Ronda's help and Ronda has sold to my mother, my brother and three sets of married friends. I would recommend her to anyone.

— Doug Binder

I am a repeat customer. Ronda has been our broker for three transactions. It's refreshing to know you can actually have fun and buy a house at the same time!

— Doug Musgrove

It took five months of committed weekend and evening home searching to find our perfect home. Ronda truly worked long and hard and demonstrated sound judgment throughout our home buying ordeal. When the time comes to sell, there is only one call to make.

— Lisa Hahn & Tom McNulty

We truly believe that Ronda's efforts paid off for us in a higher sales price and smoother transaction than we might have received otherwise. Her enthusiasm and spirit set her apart in a crowded field. Her steadfast honesty and gusto made the entire process go very smoothly.

Ronda has a keen eye and a real sense of what makes a house a home. She knew the little things you'd never think to look for but also knew the market in great depth.

— Shelly Caldwell

Ronda is the best! On a scale of 1-10 that measures trustworthy, perseverance, and professionalism I would rank Ronda an 11. I would not have been able to even step up to the plate and purchase my properties without Ronda. I look forward to my next purchase.

— Patrick McLaughlin

Ronda earned my trust by telling me both the good and bad of every property we visited. Her integrity and kindness were evident in every transaction. She quickly zeroed in on what I liked, and her detailed knowledge of NE and SE neighborhoods quickly helped me find the perfect home. She went above the call of duty to smooth my relocation to Portland, and I'm sure it would have been much harder without them.

— S. C.

Buying and selling properties can be stressful, but when you have Ronda on your side you have nothing to worry about. Her professionalism, knowledge of the market and warm, friendly personality make a normally stressful process surprisingly easy. She steered us through a number of very sticky negotiations without a hitch and spent countless hours making sure every detail was in place when the time to buy was right.

"‘15 years ago, Ronda helped us buy our very first house in NE Portland, and we have now gone through five real estate transactions with help from her. The service, personal attention and relationship she built with us when we were first-time home buyers have made us come back to Ronda as an agent ever since. Especially in a heated real estate market, having an agent that truly understand your needs and wants (and acts as a voice of reason!) is invaluable. Many agents can offer tactical assistance while buying or selling a house, but we have only forged a long-term, lasting relationship with one: Ronda Joseph.’"

"My husband and I sold our home and bought a beautiful new house simultaneously. We'd been warned by everyone that it was going to the most stressful thing we'd ever done, but thank heavens for Ronda! Her expertise and professionalism was unbelievable. She answered every question we had and just had this wealth of knowledge about buying, selling, the market, you name it. We have worked with other realtors in the past but Ronda just blew them all away. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone. You will not be disappointed. - Alsea, Portland"

"I cannot say enough good things about what a pleasure it is to work with Ronda. We love her.

She is an excellent listener, knows the Portland market inside and out, and has connections with every kind of person you can imagine who will drop what they're doing in a second to assist Ronda and her customers in their quest to find their homes.

Many of Ronda's customers are repeat buyers; as their situations change, they turn to her to find the next right thing. She's a five star agent, for sure."
