“Nathan was hands down WONDERFUL to
work with! He was patient as my husband and I
dragged him all over the outskirts of Portland
(in every direction), as we had no idea where
we wanted to buy and had really no idea what
we were really looking for. Overall I don’t
think we could have had an easier purchase
process and it was all due to Nathan. I would
recommend him to anyone wanting honest
opinions and an easy purchase/sale process.
He will not let you down” - Clarissa
