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.

"Having just moved from another country with two small kids, everything was a challenge for us. Buying a new house was the biggest of all, and we were so lucky to meet Josephine. It took us some time to understand the full house buying process as well as deciding on which neighborhood and house we wanted to settle in, as we were new to the area. Josephine was very patient and helpful throughout the whole process. She was always ready to answer our questions and provide valuable advice whenever we needed it. She was always timely, friendly, and easy work with - even our kids were always looking forward to see her :) Not only did she help us find the right house, but she has helped us settle in this new community. She is now a beloved friend of ours, and I would highly recommend her to anyone in search of a new home."

"Josephine was absolutely incredible! She pretty much dedicated a whole week to helping us find our new home. Since we were looking to purchase out of state we really needed someone that new the market and the neighborhoods really well and Josephine absolutely delivered. She visit upwards of 20 houses with us within 4 days and was quick to adapt to schedule change sin this highly competitive market. When we found "the one" she was helped us put together a compelling offer, review and explain the documentation and coordinated with home inspectors, assessments etc. After we closed she continued to help us find contractors in the area that could help us with repairs and general general services (cleaning, painting, etc). We couldn't have asked for a more knowledgeable, dedicated, and kind realtor!"

"Buying a house during the pandemic was such an intimidating process. We are very fortunate to have Josephine represent us. As first time home buyers, Josephine was fully able to explain the nuances and guide us through the process. Not only does she bring her thorough experience, but also her strong communication skills. She went above and beyond to help us find resources and information. We were impressed in how, even in the current market, she never gave up and worked persistently to help us find our best fit. We knew that we could rely on her knowledge and skill to help us send out strong and competitive offers. Not only do we consider Josephine an exceptional realtor, but also a friend! We absolutely would recommend Josephine as a realtor for anyone looking in the Portland area!"

"Josephine was always available and willing to thoroughly answer any questions we had, and was so great about planning everything around our personal schedules. When we had concerns or were starting to feel the stress of selling a house, Josephine stayed level-headed and reassuring, though still realistic in helping us think through possible outcomes. She also helped us maneuver through the impossibly frustrating process of buying a home in this current market (March-June 2021) with skill and persistence. We could rely on her to write the strongest offer we could possibly give, and she was always thinking of ways to make our offer stand out from the rest.

We are impressed with her thorough knowledge of the real estate business, her negotiation skills, her professionalism, her prompt communication, and her attention to detail. We highly recommend Josephine and would absolutely use her as a realtor in the future!"

"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.""
