Chandra and her Think Real Estate team were with me in the entire home purchase journey. They were all a joy to work with and I would strongly recommend them to anyone interested in purchasing a home.

Heather is knowledgeable, trustworthy and kindhearted. She was a strong advocate for me as a buyer throughout a lengthy home search. She gave me plenty of room to make the decision about what type of home was best for me while reliably lining up dozens of walk-throughs over several months. She knows her stuff.

She helped negotiate repairs to the home covered by the seller and get credits for any remaining defects. All the while, being friendly and easy to work with. Heather is THE best.

Chandra knew when the right house came up for us, and we got it! The house is everything we wanted and we are so happy she helped us buy it. We had a lot of parameters we wanted fulfilled, and I wasn’t sure if all could possibly be met, despite our long list, she worked with us until we found the right match.

Heather is an amazing agent. She’s responsive and communicative and extremely knowledgable about the city. She really held my hand through the process of being a first time home buyer in Portland (in an insane market!!) and managed to help me land an adorable house. Several years later, I moved out of state and needed to sell that house, and I used her services again. She handled everything for me from a distance, and I didn’t have to worry about a thing. Heather really shines in negotiations — she will go to bat for you and is extremely creative. I am extremely grateful for all the hard work she’s done for me and she completely deserves her excellent reputation.

Chandra is amazing!! I was a first time (and very nervous) home buyer and she was incredible at explaining the whole process to me and giving me fantastic advice. She helped me find the perfect house and was constantly available if I needed her. Between her and her two excellent coworkers it seemed like there was always someone available to help me with last minute house showings or questions! I’ve already recommended her to one friend and I’ll definitely be sending more friends her way in the future!

Heather is great! We wanted something very specific, and she rode through a couple of offers with us to get it. She’s knowledgeable, honest, easy to talk too, and cooler than any other realtor I’ve met.

Heather and her team at Think Real Estate were the best partners we could have hoped for in buying our first house.
…actually, to be honest, without Heather 90% of the 1,000 little details and decisions that make up the home-buying process from house hunt to loan signing wouldn’t have gotten done. We literally would still be “thinking about buying a house someday” if not for her.

She’s EXACTLY the type of agent you want to work with: experienced, knowledgeable, calm (a huge attribute), she has a great ability to find the house you want even’t if you’re not really able to communicate that (we weren’t). Her guidance at all stages of the process and all hours of the day, night and weekend got this deal done.

We will use her again and recommend her forever.

Chandra is super smart, intuitive, and down to earth. She is also fun to look at houses with (our three-year-old son still talks about her!), and good at sussing out what we’re looking for, what matters, what doesn’t. We never felt pressured, just listened to, and it was so nice to have such a cool person around while we went through the intense process of buying our first home.

You know when you have something so special that you don’t want to share it? For me this something special is Heather but I also feel she should get the review she deserves. I have worked with a lot of realtors over the years and none have impressed me. That is until I met Heather, she is incredibly knowledgeable, hard working, and honest. She has a great calming demeanor and a practicality that I love. I if you ask her to look for records of a fire she will dig until she makes friends with some little old lady at an archival.

Aaron Davidson, 2019

Chandra was amazing! She made sure that we had realistic expectations, for our budget and the market, from the beginning. She worked around our crazy schedule and even made arrangements for my husband and me to look at houses on Labor Day, because it was the only day we had off together. At one point Chandra, with the blessing of the clients she was showing homes to at that moment, pulled over to cancel our offer on a home in order to ensure we received a full refund of our earnest money.

Afterwards, she respected our decision to take a little time off before looking at any more homes and then didn’t hesitate to jump into action when we called a few days later and wanted to see a house that had just come on the market.

Chandra didn’t tell us we were being ridiculous while she was writing our less than asking offer, instead she worked her unicorn sprinkle magic and negotiated us a price we were comfortable with and it was still under asking. Chandra isn’t your typical realtor and that is exactly why we knew she was the right person to help us on our journey. She is 100% dedicated to her clients!
