They didn't push us when we set a budget and they weren't scared to point out downfalls in properties. The process of buying your first home can be scary, but with the Clemons we felt well informed and had fun with it! We are a young couple who had been looking to buy a house in Portland for over 3 years. We had been working with another realtor consistently but our offers hadn't been accepted. We met Don at an open house and he showed instantly that he was a knowledgable agent who was willing to take the time to show us the ups and downs of the home we were looking at. We shared our information with Don and few days passed. In a no pressure way, Don reached out with some information on a few properties that he thought may work for us. After just one day of touring properties with Don, we cut ties with our old realtor and never looked back. Within 4 months, we had found the perfect house and our offer was accepted. Don helped us through every step of closing, gave us names of contractors, inspectors, and electricians that he was familiar with. He did WAY more than a realtor needs to do for their clients. We have since renovated the house to be more modern and love it more and more everyday!
Don advised me on the fair market price of my home. Helped me with staging the furniture to make the home attractive, provided his professional and expert knowledge all the way through closing. He was up front and honest, a wonderful agent I would use him again.
He helped me maximize my rental income by recommending that we stage and photograph my home. He helped me find a great photographer and brought some of his own accessories to create great marketing photos to make my home desirable to renters. He has also made other great recommendations for updating and marketing our home for rental. The results have been beyond my expectations! Don is upbeat and has a "can do" attitude! He has always made himself available for questions and given great feedback. I truly trust his instincts and his judgement.
This was important to us as we moved through the home-buying process because there's a lot of documentation and things that need to be signed quickly, and Don stayed on top of it all and was quick to answer any and all questions we had throughout. We hit some bumps in the road because of a long escrow--we put an offer down before the house was built, and then the COVID-19 pandemic hit, which delayed a few things toward the end of the process. There were times where the process felt too overwhelming, but Don always helped to get us through. Not only is Don an excellent realtor, he's also just an awesome guy who we now consider a friend
I highly recommend Don to anyone looking to purchase a home in the greater Portland area. He handled everything with a high level of professionalism and kept our best interests in mind throughout the process.
We had some particularly challenging housing needs, with some unusual requests. Despite all of our difficult requirements, Don assisted my family and I wonderfully. He went above and beyond to find us the perfect house. Our home is in a cute, quiet and walkable neighborhood that fits our families specific requests to the letter (including the hard to find 3 car garage we wanted). Don is attentive, personable, and a great listener. In addition to those skills he has outstanding knowledge of the market and was great with negotiating on our behalf, which saved us both time and money. We look forward to referring him to all of our friends, family or co-workers.
We are very happy we met Don Clemons. He is professional, knowledgeable, patient, and considerate and looked out for us through the entire transaction. In addition to helping us with a purchase, we have hired him to sell our townhome and would gladly recommend him when purchasing or selling a home.
He possesses strong industry knowledge and his actions back up his words. He clearly understands the underlying nature of the business in that you collectively work together for the best interests of your client to achieve a successful outcome. Don was a pleasure to work with, and I look forward to working with him again in the future
I see a great future in your career. Thank you
