We're grateful to receive industry awards such as President’s Club-Elite and Five Star Professional for multiple years running... and it's wonderful to be recognized as a top-producing broker in Portland's Masters Circle as a Diamond-Platinum member, but what matters to us most are the nice things our clients say about us...
Quick and Associates is more than a blue ribbon firm, it's the best! Exceptional market knowledge and expertise in the intricate details of real estate transactions are just a few of the outstanding facets of their service. But more than that, Kathy's genuine caring and hopeful personality are always so important to us. She's helped us purchased our waterfront townhome in The Strand and now this lovely home where we plan to spend our retirement years. So many good feelings and memories...
Kathy, you have really enabled so much in our lives. Sure, it’s your job. But when we reflect:
- you sold us the perfect transition condo upon our return from overseas.
- you helped my Father sell his home to make a big, but necessary transition in his life.
- you helped Michelle find her dream home — not an easy task! — and probably saved our marriage in the process. You didn’t know you were a marriage counselor did you?
- and you’ve helped us transition into a safe and secure retirement with the sale of the condo. This is really important for us as we hopefully have a long haul ahead of us.
We are both in awe of your experience and abilities. We are also very grateful for all that you have done for our family. Thank you!
We’ve completed four transactions — two sales and two purchases in Johns Landing and in the South Waterfront — with Quick & Associates Real Estate. Kathy has provided outstanding representation in each of the four. We have enjoyed working with her and highly recommend Quick & Associates.
Our family has a used Quick & Associates for two transactions: a purchase and sale of the same home in Lake Oswego. Kathy’s professionalism and kindness cannot be overstated. We’re happy to provide this unqualified recommendation for anyone who requires representation from a real estate expert.
Several years ago, Kathy introduced us to our architect, who also lived along Portland’s waterfront. We've kept in touch throughout the years... so we wanted to buy a bigger home, we naturally called Kathy. We just closed on a beautiful home in Macadam Bay. Kathy walked us through how buying a floating home is different than a condo, including the inspections and board approval. We also listed our Willamette Shores with her firm. She’s done an amazing job marketing the property and we highly recommend Quick & Associates Real Estate.
I Can’t tell you how happy I am in my new condo! Thank you for everything. I really appreciate all that you did in representing me in both my sale and purchase. Please feel free to use me as a reference. I’ll happily recommend you to family, friends and colleagues.
The team at Quick & Associates are consummate real estate professionals. Kathy met me at my convenience with a tour of properties matching my list of must-haves. It was refreshing to find they were more interested in finding me the perfect house, not just "a house"... and I found exactly what I was looking for! They were a step ahead in every point of the journey, making purchasing my first home a breeze. 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!
We worked with Kathy Quick and her husband Scott to sell our Lake Oswego townhouse last summer. We found Kathy through her mailings and are so glad we did! Kathy is highly professional and personable and did an amazing job guiding us through the selling process. She and Scott 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. Kathy is dedicated, honest, realistic, a great advocate for her clients, and most of all genuine and warm. I would highly recommend Kathy to anyone looking to buy or sell a home!
Kathy helped my parents buy and sell waterfront properties, so naturally I called Kathy when I wanted to sell my condo at the Quayside. I was really impressed with her team’s marketing savvy. She provided outstanding service throughout the transaction and was fantastic to work with—going above and beyond to make my sale come together. I’m very happy to give Quick & Associates my highest recommendation!
Kathy is a true professional and a master at her craft. She provided exceptional service throughout the entire transaction. Even after we closed escrow, she was there to help. It’s a pleasure to recommend Quick & Associates.
We were referred to Kathy (by another real estate agent no less) because Quick & Associates specializes in Portland condominium properties with special attention to waterfront areas. Kathy had buyers come though our condo even before it went on the market. She provided sound guidance throughout the entire transaction, especially on the two key areas of staging and timing. We are delighted to say that Kathy helped us achieve our goals and we’re very pleased to give her a strong recommendation.
Kathy and I have known each other for years. I’ve had the pleasure of watching how she helped mutual friends buy and sell real estate. Needless to say, I was always impressed! When it came time to buy my next home, of course I asked Kathy to sell my townhome and help me purchase my current home. As I’d seen in the past, Kathy didn’t disappoint. She was kind, empathetic and extremely professional through both transactions. If you’re thinking about buying or selling a home in the Portland Metro area, there’s only one firm I recommend: Quick & Associates Real Estate.
I’m happy to recommend Quick & Associates to anyone who is buying or selling a home. Kathy is professional, personable and wonderful to work with. She is extremely knowledgable about waterfront properties. The sale happened quickly because of her great advice and wonderful contacts. She provided excellent representation throughout every phase of selling my Shoreline townhome. Thank you Kathy!
I’m a real estate agent in Eugene, and when a life-long client asked me to sell two of their condos in the South Waterfront, I knew I needed to enlist the help of a local waterfront expert. After doing my due diligence, it became very apparent that Kathy Quick was the partner I needed. It turned out to be a terrific partnership and our client couldn’t have been happier!
Kathy was referred to us by our neighbors, Willis and Laura, who live in the same complex. She walked us through the entire process before the listing and helped us prepare our home before it went on the market. We received multiple offers, with great price and terms. Kathy also helped us find our real estate agent in Santa Fe, New Mexico. All-in-all Quick & Associates has made this a great experience. We highly recommend Kathy!
We’re pleased to provide this testimonial to Quick & Associates Real Estate. Kathy sold our waterfront condo to cash buyers before it went on the public market. She provided excellent service from beginning to end. She helped us prep the condo for sale; put significant skin in the game to make the deal happen; and, coordinated all aspects of the sale flawlessly. We’re happy to recommend Quick & Associates to anyone looking for expert representation and unquestionable integrity.
Having only visited Portland once in my life, the prospects of moving to a city that was completely unfamiliar could have been a bit daunting. Fortunately, a friend connected me with Kathy before the move. I was so impressed how well she knows Portland. Aside from making me comfortable with the various neighborhoods, Kathy knows her job and how to handle all aspects of buying or selling property. And best of all... I made a new friend. I can give her my highest recommendation!!!!
We met Kathy at an open home along the waterfront some number of years ago. Her focus on Portland’s waterfront—along with her website PortlandWaterfront.com—made Kathy the obvious choice when it came time to sell our condo in Willamette Shores. Throughout the entire process, Kathy demonstrated an exceptional understanding of how to market our property, negotiate the best possible price and terms, and help us navigate the transaction. We wholeheartedly recommend Quick & Associates to anyone thinking of buying or selling along Portland’s waterfront.
Kathy, Laura and I wanted to thank you for helping us purchase our Hyland Hills condo in Beaverton. We're so glad Myke Lake referred you to us! Everything from the home search, to the neighborhood tours, through closing was simply a great experience. Please feel free to use us as a reference at anytime!
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.
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: "I think Kathy's an alien. Nobody's this prepared."
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!
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.
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.
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 brought 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!
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 knowledge 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!
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.
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.
We're thrilled to provide this recommendation for Kathy Quick and her firm. She sold our Bankside condo and earned her pay throughout every phase of the listing: The marketing materials were gorgeous. She negotiated one of the highest price for our unit. Every detail of the transaction was handled professionally. Every need anticipated and delivered upon. She has certainly earned her reputation as Portland's waterfront specialist.
I can’t thank you enough for what you did as my listing agent. Your experience and expertise made the process super easy, which I truly appreciated. Also, at all times I felt that you were putting my interests first. Please feel free to use me as a reference any time.
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.
