Print Agent Bio

As a 3rd generation Portlander, I know this city inside and out, which is valuable as a Relocation Specialist. I have favorite shops, restaurants and destinations in all corners of this city. The history, the culture, and the future of Portland are all exciting and interesting and I jump at the chance to share them with you.

 

When buying a house, you depend on me to know the market, the neighborhoods, and the extensive paperwork. You will likely rely on the relationships I have with contractors, inspectors, and other agents. It is my job to guide you through the home-buying process and give you as much information as you need to make an informed decision. I will also walk you through all of the paperwork and make sure you know what you are signing and why it is important.

 

Communication is a key ingredient in a real estate transaction. Clients have always appreciated the fact that I am in on-going communication with them throughout the process. If you email, text or call me, I will answer. In addition to being readily available, I am a firm believer in honesty. Knowing you can rely on me to give you a straight answer takes the guesswork out of our conversations. If you like to work with someone who is a straight shooter, detail-oriented, and also important...fun, we will work well together!

My wife and I loved Robin! Right from the start, we could tell she was going to be a great fit for us. She carried herself with great confidence and integrity through out the whole process. I told her at our 1st meeting that I was going to be high maintenance, due to being an anxious person who wants to know every detail. She took that and ran with it! Her communication skills, along with her knowledge of the industry were top notch! I would highly recommend Robin to anyone of my closest friends and beyond. Thank you so much Robin for you attention to detail and your attentiveness!

— David & Michele B.

Robin is fantastic!! We met Robin when we were relocating from the Midwest and we liked her immediately. She has a warm and wonderful personality that helped to take some of the stress and worry out of looking for a new home is totally unfamiliar city. Within a half an hour of our initial meeting, Robin was able to peg exactly what we were looking for and guided us to the right houses in the right neighborhoods. Whenever we called/emailed/text her with a question or concern, she was super quick to respond. She always made us feel like we were her only clients, and that finding a home for us was her only priority. Robin's biggest attribute (besides being fun!) is that she is a lifelong Portlander and REALLY knows the market. Her knowledge and experience was on full display when it came time for us to make an offer, negotiate, and go under contract. She know the neighborhoods, as she is great at assessing value. We will always be grateful for Robin's help with our relocation. We not only got a great house out of the deal, but a good friend, too! We would highly recommend working with Robin to anyone!

— Carrie and Catherine

We loved working with Robin! She was extremely flexible with her time - meeting us any time that was convenient for us, at the drop of a hat. She did an excellent job finding houses that fit our criteria. She immediately picked up on things we liked & didn't, to show us the best fits. We felt she was completely honest and trustworthy, and we also felt like she really knew the market. She was also very responsive. We had no problem finding our dream home and negotiating a good deal, with Robin's help. We highly recommend working with Robin!

— Marty and Katie

As a first time homebuyer I loved working with Robin! Her humbling personality made me feel as though I was house shopping with a friend. She is someone I can relate to and trust and she made it easy. To my surprise, buying a new home was not stressful! She explained all of the paperwork to me and kept me informed every step of the way. Plus, she found me the cutest home that matches my style perfectly from wall to wall. I look forward to working with her in the future.

We wanted to say thank you and tell you how much we appreciate everything you did to help us through the sale of our first home. We felt at ease during every part of the transaction and confident you were guiding us to make the right decisions every step of the way. Your communication and follow-thru were impeccable. In fact, the experience at each phase of the sale was superior, and each task was accomplished with competence, humility, integrity and grace. You are a true professional and we are happy to recommend your services to everyone we know. You have found clients for life in us!

— Katie and Todd H.

My experience with Robin was incredible! I tried a few different realtors before meeting Robin and my biggest frustration was the lack of communication they had. Robin listened to what I needed in a home to fit my lifestyle and most importantly my two large dogs. We looked diligently for a few months, and during that time Robin was amazing. She genuinely cared that I found MY perfect home--a place I felt safe and comfortable in. Being a first time home buyer, I had several questions and concerns along the way and Robin was so knowledgable and patient with me. I always felt confident that she would guide me in the right direction. I am so happy and grateful that Robin found my home. I couldn't have asked for a better experience or a better realtor. There is no doubt that I will use Robin as my realtor in the future.

— Veronique R.

Robin is fantastic. As a first time home buyer with virtually no understanding of real estate, she guided me through every step of way. She answered every question I had, and put it in terms I could understand. She was available to show me the houses I wanted to see very quickly, which I learned is important! She found me the house I ended up buying, which I would have never found on my own due the search requirements I had set up. She knew what I was looking for, even when I didn't! She even came to my work several times to get papers signed quickly. Robin is a kind and knowledgeable agent who I whole hearted-ly recommend!

— Erica C.

Robin was such a pleasure to work with. Her knowledge and expertise were very apparent as we started our house search. She was always willing to drop everything to meet us for a house viewing or just answer questions over the phone. Robin always kept us up to speed on new listings, status of our short sale offer, and any information pertinent to our home search. We have been in our new home for 4 months now and we absolutely love it! Thanks Robin for helping us find a place to call home. We couldn't be happier!

"Robin was a wonderful partner in helping us navigate our first home buying experience. Throughout the process—from casually looking at homes to making competitive offers—Robin was incredibly informative, communicative, available, friendly and honest. She happily offered her expertise as we asked a million first-time home buyer questions, and kept both the realness and positivity coming in a challenging market. We highly recommend working with her!"

"Robin was so great to work with! We initially started our search in the Portland area, but realized that Vancouver actually made the most sense for us. Robin is licensed in both so having that flexibility was amazing for us. We were first time homebuyers and it was so great to get her insight when we toured about what the potential problems could be of a location that we just didn't have the experience to look for. The specific areas we were looking and size of house we were looking for had very limited availability, and Robin worked super hard to get us the touring times we needed. Our final day of touring we had 3 houses come up unexpectedly the day before and we thought we were set on one going into it, but Robin was able to line up tours of all 3 for the afternoon and we ended up going with a different house and getting it because we were able to see all 3 and compare. That made the difference for us!

We had some hiccups come up with the appraisal during our closing, but Robin was able to help us negotiate with the seller and get the house in the end. She also recommended us a fantastic lender who got us the best rate around and was able to close us on time despite the closing hurdles.

High recommend Robin. She helped us land the house we were looking for!"

"Robin was such a pleasure to work with. We will miss working with her now that we have closed on our first home. As first time home buyers, we had a lot to learn. She was so patient, helpful and informative every step of the way. She was deeply in tune with not only the plethora of technical and time-critical aspects of the home buying process, but also the emotional aspects of buying a home in a hot seller's market and was incredibly supportive in more ways than we could have imagined. It was such a perfect balance of professionalism and guidance and support. She made very efficient use of time in all of our interactions and was supremely and consistently responsive, communicative, and punctual every step of the way for the entire duration of our house hunt. We always felt that we were in great hands. She knows Portland and surrounding areas very well and all her interactions with the various seller's agents along the way. She seamlessly navigated with a type of ease, grace, and confidence that can only come with not only a wealth of experience but also a true desire to help a client find a home they love. She had a great sense of the current market and her estimations, time and time again proved to be spot on. She was amazing and patient with our two young children considering the unique challenges that come with buying a home with children in the picture, and we find ourselves feeling sad that this professional relationship has come to an end. Robin has made a lasting mark on our lives and there isn't anyone else in the world we would have rather worked with on this special process of finding and buying our first home, a home we are so beyond excited to call our own. Thank you Robin. Thanks to the entire Drew Coleman Team that helped make this dream come true for us. Every interaction with other members of the team left us with only positive impressions. We feel like we made a friend in the field, and we would be happy to reach out again for any needs in the future."

"We had one other realtor before Robin and all I can say is we are so glad we got to work with Robin. She is not only timely and knowledgeable but really easy to work with. We loved that Robin worked on a team with a great lender. Also when we ran into obstacles on how to make our offers stronger and more appealing Robin find trust sit back she brainstormed with her team on how to make our offer the strongest possible. Now we have our dream home and couldn’t be happier ??"

Even in a complete seller's market faced with COVID-19, she helped me negotiate a below-market price for a home and connected me to a variety of moving services that have made the process as painless as possible."

"Our first interaction with Robin was in early November of 2020. We had a conference call to get to know each other, and we worked out the details of where we were looking/price range/etc. We had been watching listings for months, and had already looked at a few homes before we met Robin. We could tell right away that she was very organized and experienced. We scheduled showings for about 15 houses to view with her the following weekend (some of which were already pending before we could view them), and that same weekend we placed an offer on a home. The house we were interested in already had a cash deal offer, but Robin was able to walk us through creating a competitive offer and we ended up closing on the house.

This was our first time buying a home, and Robin was very helpful in answering questions as they came up. While the process was new to us, Robin's expertise was extremely helpful. She let us know what to expect in the days/weeks leading up to closing, and kept us informed as things developed. We stayed on top of all the paperwork we needed to complete, and in the end the process was much less painful than we had anticipated. We highly recommend Robin to anyone looking for a home in the Portland area. She is great to work with, and generally fun to be around."
