Kip was supremely patient with us in this tight market and we ended up with exactly what we wanted from the start. He always responded quickly to us and was beyond willing to entertain our random thoughts as well! Thank you so much and we look forward to exploring our new neighborhood and digs.

Kip is a remarkable agent who really takes the time to work with his clients and listen to what they want. When we were considering a relocation to Portland and flew in for the weekend, Kip not only had a full day organized and planned for us – he picked us up from the airport, too. He showed us houses that were great picks based on what we told him we were looking for, and he also took the time to show us around and really help us get a feel for the different parts of the city. His knowledge of the market and the area really helped us get a sense of what it would be like to live there in just two short days! And he did all of this knowing we hadn’t even decided for sure whether we’d be relocating to Portland. We can’t thank Kip enough for the time he took to help us, and we would recommend him wholeheartedly to anyone looking for a home.
