We moved to Portland from out of state, knowing no one.  Mary Jo and John showed us the best elementary shcools and neighborhoods for our needs and negotiated our house purchase with a difficult seller working without a Realtor.  Throughout the process, their professionalism, expediency, and taste in excellent restaurants were a huge value to us.  We have recommended the two of them to many friends already, and we will continue to do so throughout the years.  - Patricia and Tim, NW Portland

  

Mary Jo Williams answered the phone when I called to ask about a "house for sale" listed in the newspaper, 22-years ago.  My husband and I were young and moving to Portland from a smaller town which had a much less expensive housing market.  I called many realtors about their listings in the paper.  Mary Jo gave me the details of her listing and said that she would be happy to show it to me.  She then asked me if I would like to see some other properties.  I did not want to get into a pushy situation, so I had been shying away from realtors.  Mary's approach was very professional and friendly so I took a chance and set an appointment with her.  The first day she took us to several neighborhoods with many houses that fit the description of what we wanted.  The third house she showed us was the house we eventually bought.  When we were sure of the house, she showed us other houses to ensure that were were still drawn back to the one we chose.  The purchase went very smoothly with any detail that would cause a snag in the closing resolved before it became a problem.  We, of course, thought this was normal.  We have since learned that an honest, thorough, hard working and experienced Realtor is absolutely necessary, especially if the buyer is inexperienced.  Without hesitation, I would recommend Mary Jo and John for any real estate transaction.  - C. Lund, NW Portland

  

I think that you guys did a great job for us.  We couldn't be more satisfied wth you from start to finish.  Your knowledge of the NW area and Portland in general was of great help to us as newcomers.  Further, your input as we toured homes, Re:  fit/finish and impression was a significant factor in our ultimate decision making.  The transition from working with you and then John when you were not available was seamless and comfortable.  John also presented another viewpoint/opinion that we greatly appreciated and was exceedingly thorough during the closing procedure.  In summary, the combination of your experience, knowledge of the area, professionalisn and teamwork made our home searching and buying experience one that we can feel extremely satisfied with! - Jason & Kana, NW Portland
