Notes from our Clients

"Sue and her entire team were absolutely wonderful to work with and played a pivotal role in getting our offer accepted and closing on a house! My girlfriend and I are first time homebuyers and felt that we were in extremely qualified and caring hands. Sue was extremely knowledgeable of the market and neighborhoods; and she was a joy to work and tour houses with. She was able to answer all our questions in a educative and easy to understand manner, and has been very responsive throughout the whole process.

Her knowledge of the Portland area and market proved handy as we discovered what work has been done to the houses we toured. She was able to tell us with contractors give quality work and we can trust. She's been very honest and collaborative on any aspects that might need work within the house. As well as explaining level of importance as we move forward, and to put us in contact with exceptional contractors. We definitely hope to continue this relationship with Sue to continue improving our house and for any future needs. We would definitely recommend Sue and her team!" - John, buyers

"My husband and I recently used Nick and his team at the Mahaffy Group to both buy and sell our properties. We were blown away at the quality of service, the attentiveness and responsiveness of Nick and Sue and the others, and how helpful and capable they all were. Nick explained in easy-to-understand details the home buying process, which was new for me, and a good review for my husband. He deftly helped us navigate the intense Portland market and negotiated fantastic terms on a beautiful new home that we closed on in September. Nick then helped us focus our efforts on updating our 110+ year old starter home and brought it on the market just in time to get us top dollar. We were incredibly thankful for and impressed with his market-savviness and expert guidance. We couldn’t be happier with our experience and the many personalized touches the Mahaffy Group provides. We will surely be return customers in any future home selling or purchasing endeavors!" - H&B, buyers & sellers

"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

"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

"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

"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

"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

"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

"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

"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

"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

"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

"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

"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

"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

"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

"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
