Warm, Professional, and Attentive Service for First Time Home Buyer
By Harley Gilson-Smith on 04/01/2016
Tracy helped me buy my first house. During every step of the process, she made me feel at ease. She explained all of the little things I didn’t understand or even know about the home buying process. She was patient with me as we visited house after house and she never rushed me – she even reminded me not to hurry through the process when I was rushing myself. She always made sure I was comfortable with every step or decision that needed to be made. She was always accessible for my questions or to schedule a quick visit to a prospective house. Specifically, an amazing house had just come on the market the day after Christmas on a Saturday. She was able to meet me for a visit on Sunday morning, work with my mortgage broker Sunday afternoon/evening, and we had an offer ready to go first thing that next week when the seller was reviewing offers. A couple of weeks later, I had the keys to that very house in my hand.
Sale of Old Home and Purchase of New Home

Tracy is amazing. Her knowledge of the housing stock in the purchase of our new home, and expediting the purchase in a cut throat market was remarkable. The way Tracy helped us with preparing our house of 24 years, steering us to contractors for the repairs we needed to take care of in order to sell the house. But mostly being there to support us in all the aspects of selling our old house and buying our new home.
Thoughtful Advice for Purchase and Sale
I worked with Tracy to buy a house in March 2016 and sell a house in May 2016. I cannot say enough good things about working with her through both of these transactions. It's such an emotional and stressful process and Tracy managed to find a way to make it fun. She was all business when I needed her to be and provided sound and thoughtful advice along the way. The Portland real estate market is crazy right now, but I never once felt pressured to make an offer or any quick decisions.
When it came to selling my house, again, she had great advice and put me in touch with great people to help get my house ready to sell (painter, roofer, etc). She kept in regular contact and took all my panicked phone calls and texts in stride!
In this hot market, anyone can hang their sign out and call themselves a realtor. Tracy is a seasoned professional and was absolutely wonderful to work with. Consider yourself lucky and in good hands if you get to work with her!
