Buyers’ Testimonials

Buyer’s testimonials

My wife and I are both working professionals with two young active children, so our lives are very busy. We first engaged Gary Potts and his team in the purchase of a larger home for our family in July 2017 and subsequently worked with them on the marketing and sale of another residence with excellent experiences and results in both cases.

The purchase transaction introduced us to Gary and his team who we found were knowledgeable, service oriented, and had a thoughtful and straightforward communication style we needed and appreciated. They were sensitive to our family’s needs and well organized. He and Rachel were always available to answer questions and offer insight throughout the process which was helpful to our family. When we needed access to professional contractors, he had great recommendations and the service, availability and pricing were exactly as we expected.

We subsequently engaged Gary Potts again on the sale of our former residence. Gary was knowledgeable and helpful in finding contractors to assist with the remodeling and staging. We were impressed that he not only had a market analysis as most realtors do, but also had a well thought out marketing plan and sales strategy that worked patiently around our schedule. He worked hard for us to achieve a top value for our home. We had plenty of showings and offers and ultimately accepted a cash offer for above list within 3 days of listing. We closed the sale within 2 weeks of listing.

Our family had a wonderful experience in working with Gary Potts on two very important real estate transactions and based on own experience I would have no issue recommending Gary and his team to my closest family, friends and associates.

Brian and Jill

We just wanted to thank you again for all of your help in finding our new home. You were there for us each step of the way. You always were honest, informative and helpful. You worked with us around our crazy schedules and always were quick to respond whenever we contacted you for anything. We also were very impressed with your staff and how they stepped in to help if you weren’t available.

You went above and beyond to help us find the perfect fit for us and we truly appreciate it!

Thank you,

The Kwasnik Family

P.S. The wonderful Christmas gift went towards new picture frames for our kids’ pictures in the stairwell and they look amazing! Thanks!

Alas, the red paisley wallpaper is gone and the orange and blue shag rugs are a thing of the past, so now we can
catch our breath.

We wanted to thank you so much for your help in purchasing our larger townhouse at Millridge. As a
representative to both the buyer and the seller, we were impressed with your professionalism and the
conscientious manner you used in negotiations. After some really poor service in our previous home purchase, we
had just about given up on realtors; thanks for going the extra mile and making this transaction work so well.

We will be happy to refer you to anyone we come across that needs the services of a great realtor.
Thanks again…we sincerely appreciated all of your efforts!

We wanted to thank you again for the great job you did in the sale and purchase of our homes. Our former home
sold within a very short timeframe, one that exceeded our hopes and expectations. You developed a solid
marketing plan and were proactive in suggesting improvements that would enhance the value of that home.

We were also pleased in your assistance in finding a larger home for my family, including our 3 girls. You found a
home that fit our requirements and specifications and truly helped us purchase a home that will have an
enhanced resale value long into the future. Needless to say, you saved us thousands of dollars in this transaction.

To summarize, we appreciate the qualities you bring to your clients as an expert in your field, particularly in the
Beaverton Area, the no-nonsense approach you have to your business and the confidence we feel as clients in
working with you; we feel you are truly working in our best interest.

We wish you continued success.

Best Regards

I wanted to thank you again for the extraordinary job you did in the sale and purchase of our homes. Everyone’s
hope in a sell and purchase situation is to have both happen on the same day. You helped us meet that goal.

Your service in finding our new home was even more impressive. You diligently tracked the market for homes
meeting our specifications and once we found a home you had the insight to research the homes listing history
and we made an offer based upon your information which saved us thousands of dollars. Once again, your expert
negotiating skills through the inspection process resulted in the seller caving on nearly all issues related to the
new property. Again, we saved thousands of dollars.

The home warranty you provided has resulted in a new dishwasher for the property as well as significant servicing
on our air conditioning service at minimal cost. Once again your successful real estate formula proved very
valuable for us.

Thank you Gary and feel free to use us as references in the future. We wish you every success.

Warmest Regards,

Bruce & Cathy

Thank you so much for everything that you have done for us! This year has been very exciting for us and you have
played a very big part in that. Thank you for the understanding and the open ear to the many phone calls. You
were such a big help to us and our family, leading us in the right direction when we had no idea where we wanted
to live. You really listened to our needs. Thank you so much. The results were outstanding. We love our home!

Debbie & Scott

This is a very belated thank you for helping us sell our home and purchase our current home. We were very
pleased by your representation. You were always available. Your advice and guidance made the process go very
smoothly. We appreciate your selling strategy.

Mark & Meryl

We’ve been very pleased with your work on the selling and representing us on the buying side as well.

If I had to sum up 2 things that you’ve done well that are most important from a customer perspective, it would
be knowledge and results orientation on getting the job done, and being and advocate for our needs. I think
you’ve done both very well, and my limited experience is that something like 20% of the agents we met seemed
to satisfy #1, very few I think satisfy #2, that’s the opportunity you have for building a unique reputation. Not just
pushing to get the deal done, but willingness to take time and see tons of houses (as we did), point out the
negatives as well as the positives (as you did), and go the extra mile to get the house sold at the right price.

We sold our house at the same time as 2 other couples, and both of the others felt that their agent really wasn’t
100% on their side; they were more interested in getting the deal closed. Surprising how rare it is, I guess agents
just get desperate to get their money (which I understand), but it really leaves a bad taste, and I think most
people are very sensitive and aware of feeling like they’re being pushed vs. supported.

Thanks again,


Thank you for your advice and tenacity over the last year and a half. We began looking for a home in June or July
of 2002. You showed us homes from Yamhill to Columbia County. During the home search you were always
knowledgeable and professional in assessing pros and cons. Julia and I never felt pressured and you were always
available to field questions and drive us to a new location.

Julia and I finally found the perfect spot, a plot of land and a home plan we both loved. The process of buying a
home not yet built was difficult. Without your constant phone calls we would have been at the mercy of our
homebuilder. Our homebuilder was consistently missing deadlines and attempted to keep us in the fog. You were
a thorn in their side calling them several times a week and always keeping us updated.

After our home was completed and we were able to finalize the sale you stayed active in our affairs. The
development’s owners attempted to back out of purchasing a homeowner’s warranty as agreed in our contract
offering us half the warranties cash value. Julia and I began to worry about our options. You hounded the
development owner and pushed them into compensating us with the full cash value of the warranty.

We have lived in our new home for one year now and are very happy. The home is beautiful. Thank you again for
all the guidance and hard work.
