Dr. Blake G / West Linn
The team at Quick & Associates are consummate real estate professionals. I recently moved to Portland and contacted them immediately.
Scott and Kathy met me at my convenience and had a prepared tour of properties matching my list desires. They were more interested in finding me the perfect house, not just a house. After an exhaustive searching I found exactly what I was looking for. At this point their true professionalism became apparent.
They walked me meticulously through each step of purchasing a first home. Every challenge was dealt with in a timely manner and to my complete satisfaction. I would highly recommend this team to anyone considering purchasing a home in the Portland Metro area or surrounding suburbs.
Isaac and Lisa D / West Linn
I'll begin in the middle of our story with a funny comment that I made while we were out house hunting. I whispered to my wife:
"Needless to say, we're very pleased to recommend Kathy and Quick & Associates Real Estate to anyone relocating, buying or selling a home. Bottom line: she's the best!"
We all had a good laugh. But what was meant as a nice compliment, was really a testament to how Kathy conducts her business affairs. Her level of service is simply out of this world. Back to the beginning of the story. We recently relocated from the Caribbean to Portland with my wife and three boys. As you can image the logistics of picking up and moving thousands of miles away is a daunting affair; but Kathy and her team made the process incredibly smooth. Before we even made our first trip to Portland, Kathy worked with us to identify our most important criteria. For us, it was all about the schools, a good family neighborhood and a home that represented a good value. She setup several searches that kept track of our requirements and we shared our feedback on those homes that interested us most. Over the course of a couple weeks, we narrowed the universe of candidates down to a couple hundred in Lake Oswego and West Linn. It was clear from the outset that Kathy really keeps on top of the market. In preparation for our house hunting trip to Portland, Kathy's team had setup a private website especially for us... and uploaded additional pictures of over 50 homes that she toured for us. So not only did we get to see the complete MLS listing and photos, we also were able to view the photos and information she gathered for us on our top candidates. When we arrived in Portland, waiting for us at our hotel was a leather-bound dossier on the properties we were to preview over the next three days. It contained maps, driving directions, neighborhood and school info, color photos, listing info, and on and on. Because of all the time and effort Kathy invested ahead of our trip, we were able to preview over 40 homes in just two days. Amazing! We made an offer before we returned to P.R. and negotiated a fantastic deal on a home in West Linn. Needless to say, we're very pleased to recommend Kathy and Quick & Associates Real Estate to anyone relocating, buying or selling a home. Bottom line: she's the best!
Judy R / Portland Waterfront
I'm an owner at the Riveridge condos on Portland's waterfront and I'm pleased to provide this reference to Kathy Quick. I'll cut straight to the chase:
if you're looking for a real estate agent that you can trust with one of your most important investments - stop looking - you've found the right person in Kathy.
Kathy has proven herself time and time again. She is hard working, knowledgeable, very personable and above all - I trust her implicitly. We've worked together for several years now, and over that time she's become a dear friend. I'm more than happy to talk to you about Kathy's qualifications and discuss any questions you might have.
Tom and Sue G / Portland Waterfront
We want to thank you so much for the time you spent with us on Friday and Saturday showing us condos in the John's Landing and Sellwood areas.
You were so responsive to the kind of condo we were looking for, not wasting time looking at condos that didn't meet our criteria.
We were impressed with how organized you were, planning the route in a logical order and taking time to contact owners of condos we were viewing. Our son was also impressed with you and will refer you to any of his friends who are in the market for property in the Portland area.
Roger and Judy R / Portland Waterfront
We were out-of-state, cash buyers who found Scott and Kathy via the Internet.
They responded to our inquiries very promptly and impressed us with her encyclopedic knowledge of Portland’s waterfront communities.
They helped us navigate a very complex transaction that involved working directly with attorneys, lenders and the IRS. To say she is professional and extremely capable would be a fantastic understatement. We absolutely recommend Quick & Associates to anyone looking to buy or sell a home!
Allen and Patricia R / Lake Oswego
We relocated to Oregon in late 2005 and started house-hunting early in 2006. We did our own hunting on the internet, trying the listing realtor at each property, until we got to a property Kathy was listing. At our first meeting we knew we had found our Realtor.
Kathy brough the combination of market knowledge, great network contacts, and the down-to-earth, sensible approach we had been looking for.
We wanted to conserve cash from our prior sale, and were worried about buying near the market’s top, but still wanted a quality property. It took another month, working exclusively with Kathy, and she worked with us patiently, without any pushing or pressuring. In March we found the perfect townhouse in Lake Oswego. Kathy did a super job helping us with the offer, getting us the many pages of CCRs that go with a townhouse, arranging a very thorough home inspection, and taking us through a series of counter-offers to the final agreement, all with the calm, friendly, and professional manner we had learned to expect from her. A year and a half later we love the townhouse as much as when we first saw it. Thank you, Kathy!
Jennie L / N.E. Portland, Investor
I purchased my first rental property in Portland with Kathy's help last October.
I've been told by my friends and family that my expectations are hard to meet, but Kathy surpassed my expectations with her knoweldge and exact executions during our transaction.
Her uncanny ability to anticipate my needs in advance made it easy to do business with her. My decision to enlist Kathy's help was the best decision I've made in the last six months. Strong work ethics and real professionalism are rare these days, and you and I both know that not everyone can deliver both attributes as a package deal... unless you're lucky enough to be working with Kathy Quick, who deserves a special recognitions just for being able to offer both qualities consistently. Most of all, she always made me feel as though I was her most important client and her focus on our transaction made me feel as though I was her only client!
Dr. Albert and Dawn H / Lake Oswego
As a busy mom with two young boys, married to a doctor with a growing practice – our daily lives are hectic enough as it is. Throw-in moving from the east coast to Portland combined with looking for a new home and ... well, you get the picture. That’s where Kathy came in and really helped us out.
Not only did she help us find our new home, she made a fairly involved transaction very easy for us. We bought a property in Lake Oswego from a seller who is living in Hawaii using a lender from the East coast with a relo company in the middle of everything.
I’m not sure how many time zones that covers, but it does reinforce the point that a good real estate agent is worth every penny. I know Kathy certainly earned her pay and my respect and most importantly – our friendship. If you need a real estate agent, stop looking and call Kathy now.
Carl and Kathy W / Lake Oswego
We recently sold our home in West Lake through Quick & Associates and wanted to convey how pleased we were with the entire experience.
The most important thing that stands in our minds was just how smoothly everything went. There was no anxiety. No tense moments. From the moment we talked to Kathy about listing our home, we just knew we were in good hands. Kathy’s very easy to talk to; very approachable. But you also get the sense that she’s a professional who knows her business very well.
Kathy also help us with our relocation to Phoenix – which was another huge positive. So instead of facing an uncertain move to an unfamiliar city, the experience turned out to be fantastic (and we absolutely love our new home). Kathy and Scott has our sincere thanks and we give them our highest recommendation.
Janelle and Robert S / North and Southwest Portland
Scott and Kathy sold our home in North Portland near overlook and I can’t begin tell you how grateful I am for everything she did for us.
I’m an economist for a large organization here in town and keep very close tabs on the local housing market. Kathy impressed me with her understanding of how to work effectively within the context of a changing market. We sold quickly and for a price that we were very pleased with. She also helped us find our new home in Southwest Portland.
And again, Kathy proved her worth. We were leaning toward buying a fixer... but Kathy has a way of listening very carefully and suggesting alternatives without being pushy. In the end, we passed on the fixer and now live in an absolutely lovely home. I wholeheartedly recommend Quick & Associates to anyone buying or selling their next home.
Keith B / Lake Oswego Investor
Scott and Kathy, I wanted to thank you for all your help with the purchase of 22 Wheatherstone. Aside from the fact it’s a great property and a great value, it was a real pleasure to deal with you.
As I’ve mentioned before, I have relatives in the business, but you really set yourself a part from the crowd.
Keep up the good work and feel free to use me as a solid reference for all your prospective clients. Cheers, Keith.
Marty and Karen F / Southwest Hills and West Linn
Kathy represented us in the sale of our home in West Linn as well as in the purchase of our new home in the Southwest Hills in Portland. During the buying process, Kathy made me feel extremely comfortable as she worked at my pace. She kept me up-to-date on the market, but was never pushy.
But what really impressed me was the fact she got me in to preview certain properties BEFORE they went on the market – which speaks volumes about her network. And... when we switched gears from looking for waterfront properties to homes in the Southwest Hills, she didn’t miss a beat.
Karen and I are now living in a gorgeous home overlooking the Willamette River with views of Mt Hood and Saint Helens! When it came time to sell our home in West Linn, Kathy delivered again. We were able to net the highest price per square foot in our neighborhood in a very reasonable amount of time... and at a time when the market was starting to cool. I handed her the keys and she took care of the rest. The staging company she works with did a fantastic job. We received an offer very close to our asking price from a very well qualified buyer. The transaction went off without a hitch. In short, it was a great experience and I would recommend Kathy without hesitation. She is a true professional.
Mitch and Mary S / N.E. Portland
In late spring of 2005, my wife and I, and our two boys found ourselves experiencing some serious growing pains at our NE Portland home. We loved our neighborhood but felt that we needed a larger home. We found the perfect home just 8 blocks away one afternoon while walking our dog. It was in the process of being renovated and wasn’t yet on the market. After arranging a tentative deal with the owners and literally sealing the deal with a handshake we set out and attempted to sell our home by ourselves. The timing was great for FSBO but we were in a pinch and were running out of time. We couldn’t let our dream home to slip away and decided that we needed the help of a realtor. Though we’d worked with the same realtor during our previous two home purchases and had even talked with a few other realtors during this process, none felt right for the job. We were very lucky that Kathy Quick found us.
From the moment we met her we knew that Kathy was in a different league. She had the perfect combination of confidence, knowledge and professionalism. In what seemed like the blink of an eye, she had multiple offers for us to consider and eventually helped us through the rest of the sales transaction.
Kathy’s the bomb and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to anyone!
Drs Sean and Gretchen L / Lake Oswego
We worked with Scott and Kathy Quick to sell our Lake Oswego townhouse last summer. We found Quick & Associates through their mailings and are so glad we did! They are professional and personable and did an amazing job guiding us through the selling process.
Both Scott and Kathy went above and beyond, helping us with everything from staging to landscaping to moving out when the property sold. Over time we came to think of them as friends and we still in touch even today. They are dedicated, honest, realistic, a great advocate for her clients, and most of all genuine and warm.
I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell a home!
Dr. Nancy S / Southwest Portland
My experience working with Kathy Quick was the best house searching experience I have ever had. She focused on the essence of what I desired in a home and honed in on it with gusto.
Her partner/husband was a huge asset in the arrangement and was a major contributor to the plan for house hunting. Not only did he make the search for houses easy by doing all the driving, but he did his own housing searches based on the outcomes from the previous day and sent them to me in the evening after a long day of house hunting. The Quicks both gave expert advice on loans and mortgages and I truly felt they had my best interests at heart.
As my schedule didn't lend itself to facilitate the inspectors and appraisers visits to the house I selected, the Quick team was there and got the job done. A full and thorough account of the outcomes and reports were promptly sent to me along with their seasoned advice and suggestions. It truly was an experience that I would recommend to others. I feel I gained l a life-long source for trustworthy realty services and life-long friends.
Robert and Kathryn S / Lake Oswego and Oregon Coast
The purchase of a second home that must function as a fully staffed office can be a tricky undertaking!! Kathy found The Place with proper zoning, fully equipped for our business needs including broadband, easy access for clients as well as livability with a view.
She wrote the offer & had our financing in place in less than 2 hours! It was an unbelievably easy process.
I've recommended Kathy to friends and will continue to use her service for all of our real estate needs.
Suzie O / Lake Oswego
It’s not often that you find someone who starts out as your real estate agent and ends up a dear friend – but that is exactly what I found in Kathy.
It’s amazing to watch her work. We received a pretty disappointing offer, but by the time we were through, Kathy had renegotiated the offer and my home sold for the highest price per square foot in the neighborhood!
Kathy also found a beautiful new townhouse in Lake Oswego – which I just love. She took care of all the details for me and the move was worry-free. I recommend Kathy every chance I get.
Terry I / Southeast Portland
We highly recommend Kathy and her team! They took care of everything for us... the handyman work, the staging and professional photography. Todd at OnStage did a superb job of transforming our house into a showcase home. To get a full-price offer before we went on the market was a dream come true!
