Notes from our Clients

"Sue Sullivan was amazing to work with - kind, knowledgeable, detail-oriented, and responsive. The Portland Real Estate market is tough, and we couldn't have done it without her. The team and Windermere working with Sue was amazing too. They were thorough, responsive and professional. We felt we had a whole team working to support our efforts to buy a house. I highly recommend the Mahaffy Group at Windermere Realty Trust!" - Sarah & Bret, buyers

"I’ve had the experience of home buying several times in my life and I can truly say that this has been the most special. Nick Swann’s professionalism and thorough knowledge and expertise combined with his commitment and attention to detail and to our family’s needs have been superior to any other agent we’ve worked with previously. Nick helped make our family’s dream of home-owning in Portland a reality and what’s more, he did it all in record time and quality. I have nothing but good to say about Nick and the Mahaffy Group. Bravo and thank you. Big love." - Pam, buyer

"Matt will go above and beyond to assist you in the sale/purchase of your property. He accomplished both of these for me within a minimal amount of time. He is a very caring individual, who continues to keep in contact with clients even after transactions are completed. Matt is a rarity in modern business dealings; integrity and honesty are at the top of the way he and his team do real estate business. He is a hard worker, as is his entire team. Besides that, he is a genuine nice person!" - Nan, buyer & seller

"Like working with family but family that you really like to be around! We've both bought and sold with Sue Sullivan and for what should be a stressful time, everything was smooth sailing. Sue and the whole team at Mahaffy are excellent and we always felt extremely well taken care of and cared for!" - Kelly & Ed, buyers & sellers

"Matt, Dan, Alyssa and the team at Mahaffy group made our selling experience as stress-free as possible as they guided us through the process step by step with positive reinforcement along the way. Their years of experience helped us with necessary decisions we had to make when getting ready to market our home of 19 years. Would highly recommend their services." - Stacie & Ron, sellers

"Nick and his team are exceptional. Nick is a stand out agent who really took time to get to know me and my needs in the search for my new home. And he showed the exact same dedication and diligence when he helped me sell a few years later. I cannot recommend the Mahaffy Group highly enough." - Bree, buyer & seller

"We feel so incredibly lucky to have worked with Sue, Matt, Dan and others at the Mahaffy Group. Sue knows the Portland market and many of the key individuals so incredibly well. Her knowledge and stellar reputation helped us get our offer accepted in what was a very competitive market. Perhaps most astounding was Sue's responsiveness and her ability to stay on top of all the little details. She made us feel as if we were her only clients. Can't say enough good things, really." - Arpiar, buyers

"My husband and I have worked with Matt and Sue for three home purchases now and could not be more pleased with how each transaction (all three of very different types- a city condo, a suburban home, and a rural property) went. Working with them is fun and they always make us feel like family, ensuring that we feel great every step of the purchasing processes. It felt like a miracle to get our dream house in this 2021 real estate market on the first offer we made, but I am not surprised that Matt and Sue pulled it off. :)" - Josie, buyers

"My wife and I recently purchased our first home and we highly recommend Julia Monson and the rest of the Mahaffy Group. Buying a house in a crazy real estate market during a global pandemic was not exactly easy or fun, but we successfully made it through largely thanks to Julia's advice, encouragement, humor, determination, and optimism (sprinkled with occasional sobering realism). And after we got an offer accepted, Julia and Dan were huge assets and great advocates helping us negotiate needed repairs, scheduling contractors, and coordinating regularly with the Seller." - Nathan & Tia, buyers

"Sue Sullivan and the Mahaffy team were great listeners and very perceptive when we shared our wishes for a Wilsonville home. Sue found the perfect match for us which helped us immensely since we lived five hours away! She tracked every detail of the purchasing process so we could focus on other things. Everything came together seamlessly and we highly recommend Sue and the Mahaffy group for your real estate needs!" - Emily, buyers

"An exceptional realty group. The collaboration between the team members, ease of communication, trust-worthy referrals, and small gestures of support throughout the home-buying process made me feel cared for from start to finish." - Jane, buyer

"We had a great experience with Nick and the Mahaffy Group team in purchasing our house in SW, despite a crazy market. Nick was incredibly knowledgeable, responsive, and effective in helping us navigate the shopping and buying process. Would definitely recommend!" - Kara, buyers

"Julia is great! When we moved we were completely overwhelmed by the real estate market. We worked with five different realtors and after sitting down with Julia on our first meeting we knew she would be the perfect fit for us. She will truly push to get you what you want and won’t pressure you into anything you may not feel comfortable with. At every turn, she was helpful and there for us, from inspector and vendor recommendations to providing helpful insight on houses and neighborhoods. We feel confident that she had our best interest at heart, and that alone has earned our trust and respect. I will recommend her to everyone I know who is looking for a house." - Agust & Luli, buyers

"My partner and I worked with Julia Monson of the Mahaffy Group throughout our home buying process, and we have nothing but good things to say about her and her team.
Julia and her team broke down every step of the process in a way for me and my partner to understand, which we greatly appreciated as we are first time homeowners.
Julia sat with my partner and I to determine what type of home we were looking for and sent recommendations as close to what we described with what was on the market.
Once we made an offer on a home, Julia and her team checked in to remind us of any paperwork or items we needed to sign or provide, which can be hard to lose track throughout the process, as you are dealing with a number of disclosures and agreements from multiple entities.
This was a long and stressful process that I hope my partner and I won’t have to go through again for a while, but knowing we’ll have Julia and her team guiding us through the process when that time comes definitely calms some nerves." - Buyers, Nathan & Angela 

"I recently sold my condo and Julia did a wonderful job as my agent. It was my first home sale and she was extremely helpful with every step of the process. She gave excellent advice on how to price my condo and devised an effective marketing strategy which resulted in several offers within days of being on the market. I happily accepted an offer above asking price. From there, she expertly guided me through all of the necessary steps to close successfully including negotiations, repairs, inspections, etc. She was meticulous in making sure everything was ready for closing. Julia was personable, easy to reach, and very responsive throughout the whole process. If you're looking for a real estate agent, I'd highly recommend Julia!" - Obi, seller

"We absolutely loved working with Sue, Dan and the rest of their team to buy our first home. Moving from out of state brought some complications and we felt supported all along the way. Our questions were always answered quickly and very thoroughly. Their knowledge made us feel that we were in the best hands possible to get a home in this tough market! Thanks for everything guys!" - Rebecca & Ryan, buyers

"Working with Sue Sullivan and the rest of the team at Mahaffy Group was amazing. We were very picky buyers and Sue was incredibly patient and took the time to educate us on the market. 10/10 would recommend." - Connor, buyers

"This was our first home buying experience and Matt really helped us feel comfortable and taken care of. He was present and available for any tiny question through the whole process. Hopefully we won't be moving for some time, but if we do, we will use Matt again (and recommend the Mahaffy Group to friends and family!)." - Chelsea & Eric, buyers & sellers

"We have bought and sold a few properties with Matt and his team at Mahaffy Group. They are always quick to respond, willing to lean in and offer a reference or a suggestion, and they are kind and the type of people you want to do business with." - Holly, buyers & sellers

"Sue and the whole Mahaffy team were great! I have and will continue to use them for all our real estate purchases. Can't recommend them enough!" - Greg, buyers 

"Julia and team were fantastic in our search for our first investment property. Not only in helping us find the perfect property but also in helping with renter questions as they came up. Without a doubt would recommend Julia and hope to work with her again soon." - Jetson & Sarah, buyers

"Matt (and his whole team) was excellent to work with, and very accommodating to my particular circumstances. They made sure to keep in contact with me and update me every step of the way; I felt incredibly comfortable having them handle my house sale." - Ashley, seller

"My husband and I have bought and sold a lot of homes and Matt Mahaffy and his group are the best in the business. We cannot recommend them enough. If you are looking for a professional yet personable group that is truly in touch with the pulse of the real estate market give them a try." - Traci & Robert, sellers

"The Mahaffy Group at Windermere Realty Trust was such a pleasure to work with in my first home buying experience. Sue and Julia were very welcoming and encouraging through all of the steps in the beginning. I had the pleasure of working with Julia Monson and I could not have been more happy with all my needs being met. The Mahaffy Group truly devotes themselves to serving the needs of their clients before, during and after the transaction." - Samantha, buyer

"Matt and the professionals with whom he works smoothly and profitably marketed and sold our house within 5 days. All "hitches" were addressed and covered. They were on top of the transaction every step of the way." - Bill & Anna, sellers

"Sue Sullivan and her team are absolutely the very best at selling and buying houses. They cover every detail and are an absolute pleasure to work with. I have had the pleasure of working with Sue and her team on a couple transactions and each time has been excellent. If you want to hire a realtor team who really knows their stuff, this is the team to work with." - Kristina, buyers & sellers

"It was an absolute pleasure to work with the Mahaffy Group. More specifically, our realtor Sue Sullivan, really went above and beyond to make buying our first home a positive experience. Sue’s wealth of knowledge and extensive experience was incredibly comforting in facing what can definitely be an intimidating process. She made herself available to answer our countless questions and did so with the perfect amount of personal touch. We could not have asked for a better person to take the reigns and guide us in the right direction. This mentality is clearly consistent throughout the group. Everyone we worked with has been amazing and exceptionally professional. Extra shout out to Kaylie Shults as well for her tremendous support." - Henry, buyers

"My wife and I recently used the Mahaffy Group at Windermere Realty Trust to buy our new home in Clackamas. The team at Mahaffy was incredible. Keeping us updated on everything we needed to know. Responding to every question we had quickly and with all the information we needed and wanted. Our agent, Julia Monson was there for us every step of the way. Her knowledge, skill and professionalism made a process that could have been difficult, quick and easy as possible. She was our advisor and advocate and in the future, if we buy or sell in the area we will absolutely use her again." - Bruce, buyers

"Sue and the team at Mahaffy were so helpful with navigating my first home buying experience. No question was too silly as Sue walked me through the process from start to finish, and then as she walked me through houses pointing out possible alarm bells and working on my behalf to make strong offers in this sellers market insanity. We ended up finding the perfect home for us one evening and Sue met us there the following day, made an offer, and we got accepted a day later. Sue was with us through inspections and some negotiations, and then she knows everyone to make any repairs we may need. Really happy to have her and the team as a resource going forward!" - Candace, buyer

"My fiancé and I just recently bought our first home with Sue, and it was the most incredible experience! We went into the process not knowing much, and Sue made sure that we understood each step of the way and encouraged us all throughout! It really felt like she genuinely cared about her clients, and we really appreciated all of her personal suggestions and inputs. She was always extremely responsive and somehow magically brought out the best case scenarios every single time! It was far too obvious that she had the best reputation as an amazingly kind and proficient agent in Portland, and we only want to confirm that with this review!" - Cody & Heo, buyers

"Sue and her team were experienced, knowledgeable, and supportive throughout our entire home buying and selling process. We loved working with them and felt like we were in such great hands. I would recommend them to anyone! We love our new home and are so thankful to their team for helping us get us here :)" - Olivia & Calvin, buyers & sellers

"Nick helped us sell and purchase a new home. From start to finish we were completely impressed by his professionalism, dedication to us as clients, and willingness to go above and beyond for us for anything and everything we needed. He is kind and enjoyable to work with and advocated for us in every interaction. The family that purchased our home purchased it as is and offered us free rent back thanks to Nick's advocacy. Additionally, our offer was accepted on our new home and all repairs and requests we made were accepted. He even got them to cover our closing costs. Cannot be happier with Nick and the Mahaffy group." - A & R Peck, sellers and buyers

"Nick was a phenomenal real estate agent for our first-time buying a home. He anticipated questions we would have before we even knew we had them! He made us feel very comfortable in what can sometimes be a very stressful situation. After only one time out viewing homes, Nick keyed on exactly what we were looking for, and he helped make our dream a reality." - Noah & Delaney, buyers

"Julia gets results! Not only did she sell our house the day it went on the market, she also got us more than we asked for. On top of that she is easy to get a hold of, responds within minutes and is just easy to work with. If you want results, go with Julia. You won't be disappointed." - Eric, seller

"There are no words for how amazing Sue and her team are. Within 24 hours of us starting to look for our first home, Sue had managed to help us to get our first offer accepted, after a bit of negotiation. She knew exactly what levers to pull in order to get our offer accepted though there were a number on the table." - Kim K, buyer

"Working with Sue Sullivan to find and purchase our new home not only exceeded our expectations of what a realtor should do, but opened our eyes to all the things a dedicated, knowledgeable, and hard-working agent and team could do. Sue took the time to understand what we wanted, and helped us  expand our search in ways we hadn’t considered, based on her familiarity with the areas and neighborhoods, as well as a thorough understanding of the market trends. In the rare instance she was unavailable, Matt and Nick filled in seamlessly, and Sara was efficient and professional behind the scenes." - Buyer in Sherwood

"Sue was recommended to me by a close friend who has been one of Portland's top mortgage brokers for decades. I asked him who he would trust if he was buying a home for his family. He immediately referred me to Sue Sullivan, and I'm SO glad he did! Sue is the consummate pro, and a genuine  pleasure to work with. She and her team consistently gave great advice, and helped me land a great house in a great neighborhood They were always available when I needed them, and had terrific insight of the local market. I can't recommend Sue highly enough!" - Buyer in Portland

"Sue is wonderful! We wish everyone could have her and her team as their realtor. Having just moved, we couldn't have had more support every aspect of our move (even referring a handyman to help with inspection issues). She is so energetic and so knowledgeable we didn't worry about anything related  to the sale. What Sue didn't handle herself, one of her support people was right there to help. It was like a well-oiled machine. Hearing some stories from people about their experience with a realtor makes us realize how lucky we were! We consider Sue and her team to be friends." - Bob & Marge, sellers

"We moved cross-country and have very few contacts in Portland. Sue was recommended to us by a colleague. Working with her was one of the most important decisions we made during our move. Sue is extremely thorough, responsive, doesn't miss a detail, and flat out worked super hard for us. She's also a genuinely good person, and spending time with her is a pleasure. With her long tenure in Portland, Sue is very well connected and had more than a few recommendations any time we needed help. The whole buying process was a breeze as well: she and her firm did everything without missing a deadline or detail. Buying a house with Sue was a pretty fantastic experience." - Ken, buyers

"Just completed my second real estate transaction with the Mahaffy group and wanted to especially thank Nicholas for all of his effort and the expertise he brought to the process. I have previously worked with Matt and Sue and their depth and experience always shines through. Nick's enthusiasm, level of skill and knowledge reflect competencies well beyond his age and experience -- I've worked with a number of agents in both Oregon and California and would place Nick in the top 5% of all professionals retained in the last decade. Kudos to Nicholas!" - Peter D, buyer & seller

"Nick Swann is professional, attentive, patient, and detailed. He always communicated with us even when he was still waiting for updates, just to keep us in the loop which we very much appreciated. He was transparent and honest about the houses we viewed and the offers we made... I would highly recommend Nick and the Mahaffy Group!" - Chris & Frances, buyer

"Julia is an absolute gem! As first time home buyers, we were uncertain about the process and nervous about the competitive market. Julia was a fantastic partner who helped us uncover what we wanted, find it and procure it. She gave us great advice about negotiating, was unbelievably responsive and educated us about how things work. She went above and beyond anything I'd expect and I would highly recommend her to anyone interested in buying or selling their home. Julia is the reason we now get to call our sweet house a home." - Kirsty, buyer

"Sue was an absolute pleasure and professional to work with. We feel so fortunate to have been in such capable hands as we navigated purchasing a home in one hectic market. She was our partner every step of the way, demystified process, was highly responsive and we don't know how we would have closed on our home without her and her wonderful team. Would rate higher if we could and would highly recommend!" - Amanda, buyer

"Extremely professional, knowledgeable, kind and great to work with. Selling our home could not have been easier! Matt and team did their research, advised with skill and priced the house to sell while still being competitive. We would work with Matt again in a heartbeat." - Devon & Liz, sellers

"All around amazing! I needed so much project management help on my recent sale and Sue was incredible. She is professional, experienced, available, responsive and a serious joy to work with! I would give her 6 stars out of 5 if I could. Highly recommend." - Angela & Joe, sellers

"Sue and her team exceeded our expectations. Their professionalism and caring was unrivaled by any other real estate experience I have ever had. Thank you so so much!" - Gary & Katherine, sellers 

"Nick and the team were beyond amazing to us, couldn’t have asked for better support in our process of buying our first home!" - Danielle, buyers

"As first-time home buyers, I don't think we could have found a better real estate agent than Julia. She quickly understood our needs, helped us be realistic with the homes we chose to visit, gave her honest opinions, and she was very communicative. We will be recommending Julia to anyone looking into real estate in Portland!" -Aidan, buyer

"Nick Swann was a great realtor. He was an advocate for me, the buyer, and tireless in his efforts to find me just the right house." - Melanie, buyer

"Sue is the most thorough and connected Real Estate Broker I have ever known. I would recommend her to everyone looking for an authentic person who really cares and knows her stuff." - JP & Summer, sellers

"Sold my home after I'd already moved to East coast. Great neighborhood sense and interactive style. Took care of getting all household goods moved and all ends tied up. Effortless for me." - R. Simon, seller

"Nick Swann is the BEST agent you can have to buy or sell. Beyond knowledgeable, he truly has your back! We'd never use anyone else." - Laura, buyers
