What Clients Say

Walt + Val, Dreamers

We owe that guy many fine beers! Once upon a time, a couple of crazy kids dreamed of owning their first home in Portland. Clarke made the dream reality. From the first day of hunting to the last day of closing, Clarke was there with both smile and style.

Ed, VP Engineering

Clarke made the process of selling my home painless and easy. That stood out. And surprised me. I was very happy with the marketing, words and photography. He made good use of online resources. Throughout, he took great care with details. Really, Clarke just did an outstanding job of getting my home sold, faster than I expected and for more money.

Brooks + Family

Clarke always made finding the right home at the right price the most important objective. And he stayed positive no matter how many places we visited. I never felt pressured to buy; and in fact, he was eager to walk away so that we could get the right price. With Clarke, we had a partner we genuinely could trust.

Deb + Mason

Clarke knew how to get the home sold and closed in a difficult, challenging economy. He was able to give us constructive, professional direction at every point in the process of marketing our home. He was very attentive to detail. He was always available. He put in the above-and-beyond time. We would recommend him highly, and have.

Travis, Liz + Kids

We were very comfortable working with Clarke; and we can't say that about any other realtor we've ever worked with. In preparing to sell our home, his advice was very good. Do this. Don't do that. It helped a lot. True when we bought too. He asked great questions that really got us thinking about what we should do.

Linda, MD

I loved working with Clarke. He made the house hunting process enjoyable and really helped with all the details involved in financing, negotiating and closing the deal. I appreciated his willingness to work within my crazy schedule. He was always available to answer my questions. Now, I not only consider him my Real Estate Agent but also my friend.

Wayne, Shannon + Kids

We tell anybody who wants to buy a home, "Clarke's the guy." We had some ups and downs along the way; but he always stayed calm, always had a back-up plan. If he hadn't been confidently leading the way, we're not sure we'd have made it to the happy ending. But we did, thanks to Clarke.

Cody + Candace

Clarke was very thorough, attentive, knowledgeable and friendly. We also felt he wasn't pushy. That made us feel more comfortable. And since it was our first home, that mattered a lot. We even had a good time during the process.

Abe, Construction Superintendant

I appreciated the fact that Clarke didn't try to sell me everything we looked at. In fact, when he thought a place was junk, he said so. He was knowledgeable about the process and guided me sure-footedly. He made himself available too to take care of important matters while I was out of town. I really believe he looked out for my best interests and I'd use him again without hesitation.

Kate, Charter School Founder

Clarke managed to take the stress off my shoulders. Not an easy task. As the president of a charter school, my schedule is always crazy. Clarke cheerfully took care of managing chores and details so that we were able to complete the process, with less of my time and attention diverted from the school. Finding and buying my home was a pleasant experience.

Gary, Senior Counsel

We were selling in a very harsh market; but Clarke got the home sold when other homes didn't sell. He was a straight shooter. That was important, even if what he had to say wasn't always good news. Furthermore, he took great photos and made my home look its best.
