It's always impressive when you meet a professional that has aligned his or her passions with what they choose to do for a living. Blake is by far the best to work with. We were with an agent before and switched to Blake when we weren't getting the results we were looking for. When we asked our prior realtor if we should stage our space he gave us three numbers to call. With Blake, it was an altogether different experience. He orchestrated fabulous pictures, staging, marketing materials and online feedback within a few days. He was a very strong and well informed negotiator but was always professional and honest. Blake is bright, personable and passionate..a gem in the real estate world!
I could not have dreamed of a better person to sell my home than Blake. He knew how to price it to sell quickly and was involved every step of the way. When we had a little hiccup with the appraisal, Blake made me feel confident he knew the best way to solve the problem. And he did! On top of all his selling expertise, he's a funny guy who's fun to work with! Loved my entire experience.
I recently worked with Blake to sell my condo in South Waterfront. Very much appreciated how he listened and understood my needs and parameters. He also made the process very effortless for me and I never had to follow-up with him - if he said he was going to do something, he did it. Honestly, I can say I know what I want and he was able to keep up with me. We got our first offer within a reasonable period of time (and a backup offer too) and was satisfied with the terms of the sale. All in all, job well done. Thank you Blake!
Blake Ellis was professional and approachable on every aspect of selling our loft. He was straightforward and honest with years of experience and knowledge of the Portland area, especially the Pearl district. When Blake gave us a timeline it was done as planned. If we needed to talk he responded. It all went smooth and with little stress. We would recommend Blake Ellis with the highest of confidence!
