“Erin Oldham is a fantastic relator and overall incredibly kind individual. As first time home buyers and moving from out of state, my husband and I were truly lucky to have found her. Erin's knowledge of the market, the area, even contractors proved valuable from day one. She helped us find our historic dream home and the whole process was unexpectedly quick and painless. We would not have been as successful without Erin in our corner. We couldn't recommend her services enough”. ~ Joanna & Mike, settled on the West End of Portland
“This was my third home purchase and sale and Erin was by far the best realtor with whom I worked. Not only is she intelligent, well-spoken, intuitive, savvy and knowledgeable, but also, she gets things done quickly and when they need to be done. After looking at many houses and condos, she called me the day before the condo I ultimately bought went on the market and said she found the "one." I saw the condo the day it went on the market and we had it under contract the next day -- before the first open house. Several open house attendees were rather disappointed that the condo was already under contract! Erin is also extremely well-connected; if you need a contractor during the inspection period she has one. Erin was equally impressive at helping me sell my West End home at a good price. She has an unbelievable memory and remembered all the details about my home to pass onto buyers. She used balanced judgment and experience to evaluate offers and make counter-offers. I highly recommend Erin Oldham if you are buying or selling a house/condo.” ~ Melissa, sold a gorgeous West End home and settled into a phenomenal East End condo.
