Blair was very helpful with suggestions to ready the house for the market. We were pleased with his suggestions to update the property by replacing the hardware, painting and changing out a few light fixtures. The end result made a big difference in the overall appearance of the home. Blair helped to price the home to sell and his expertise in negotiating the offer was much appreciated. He is fair and honest and a pleasure to work with.

Blair helped my wife and I purchase a home, and I have nothing but good things to say. He always makes himself available when needed, responded quickly when information was requested, and did everything possible to make our purchase easier. By the time you are done working with him not only will you have a new Realtor, but your kids may even have a new godfather, this man is amazing.

Blair made selling my home a piece of cake! He was extremely responsive, and from beginning to end made the process so smooth and easy. His professionalism coupled with his knowledge and interpersonal skills made for a wonderful experience. My house sold in a week! He arranged all of the repairs that needed to be made before closing and even met the window crew at the house when I couldn't make it. Blair went above and beyond. I give him my highest recommendation and if I ever have any real estate needs in the future I'm definitely using him! Less ... More

Even though our families have been friends for many years, this was the first time we'd had a chance to work with Blair as our realtor. We anticipated he'd be very good at it and we were genuinely thrilled with our outcome. We were selling our waterfront home, asking top dollar, and decided to put complete trust in Blair's guidance. We followed all his advice, including the updates our home needed, his staging recommendation, all negotiations, etc., and the result was outstanding. We sold our home in just 20 days, and could not have been happier with all his work on our behalf. He provided meticulous guidance throughout, but with a light touch that made it nearly stress-free for us. Simply put, Blair is very good at this! - Todd and Marlene Hill Less ... More

Brook and I were new to Portland when we began working with Blair to find a house to purchase. We initially had very little understanding of the area we wanted to live in, or even whether a particular list price was market appropriate. Blair provided us with all the information we asked for on both location and pricing, as well as the pros, cons and amenities of each neighborhood, and was unbelievably patient with us throughout the process. Indeed, he showed us approximately 100 houses, in every neighborhood in Portland (and even some outside Portland), and stuck with us month after month, including through two aborted deals. Not once in this process did Blair push us into making any decisions we weren't comfortable with or show any impatience, and he was always able to inject some optimism into the process, even when both Brook and I began wondering if we would ever find the right place.. I simply can't overstate how great Blair was to work with, how much knowledge he has of the market, and what an overall tremendous job he did for us. Thank you Blair! Less ... More

Easy going, honest and professional! If you are looking for someone who has your best interests in mind, I would highly recommend Blair Jones. Being a first time home buyer, 23 years old and having very little knowledge about the world of real estate, Blair guided me through the process of buying my first home with ease. We looked at about 5 different houses before I bought my home in January. And after six months of living here I couldn't be happier! Thanks again, Blair!

Run, do not walk to hire Blair Jones as your Realtor. His creativity from the virutal tours and home pages caused a stir surrounding my home even before it listed! I appreciated his professionalism, courtesy and sound advice throughout the process. Blair kept me informed well ahead of deadlines which provided a sense of ease and trust. He is well connected to a team of others if work is needed within a home to help nudge the sale through. It's no accident my house sold in under 30 hours....yes I did say hours. This was due to thoughtful filming, editing, naming of website, marketing plans and his eighteen years of experience both with Real Estate and communicating what the house and property's best assets were. Blair is also a people person which is a bonus for all. His communication skills are fantastic. We found an exceptional Realtor and a friend for life! Blair Jones goes the extra 100 miles to facilitate change for people. No kidding! Less ... More

Blair was awesome. He found me the perfect condo in the perfect location. I know we got it at a great price because the appraisal came in a good amount over what I paid. As a first time home buyer I knew nothing about the process. Blair made the whole thing very easy for me. He also sold my parents house for them back in 2008. They thought so highly of him that I decided to use Blair as well. Glad I did. Very nice guy, easy to reach and honest. I would highly recommend Blair to anyone looking to buy or sell a home!

I don't know if I CAN describe my experience with Blair Jones. I write fiction screenplays and this truth would never be believed! Blair was amazing, for the lack of a better descriptive term. Being 3000 miles from the house I was trying to sell seemed like it was going to be impossible. However, with Blair there it was as much of a breeze as it could have been. Besides such an Extraordinary realtor, Blair is one of those "Good People" of this earth. The things he did for us in the sale of Both of our houses was so over the top that I won't even try to explain. All I can say is that if you want the BEST IN CLASS then Hire Blair Jones! He's now a friend for life. Less ... More

Blair was an amazing realtor and an invaluable asset to have on my side during the house hunt and purchase process. It is all thanks to his hard work and dedication that I now own my first home! His knowledge of the area was extremely helpful when I was trying to narrow down the ideal location to start the search. Blair?s patience and good humor was much appreciated when we were looking at multiple houses during our appointments together, which made it an enjoyable experience. His calm and level demeanor helped tremendously when we were getting ready to close on the condo. He was present during the entire process, start to finish. I am very grateful for his services and look forward to working with him again! Less ... More

I would highly recommend Blair Jones to anyone selling or buying a home in the greater Portland area. My wife and I have bought and sold three homes now and this experience has been by far the most professional and stress free of any. Blair clearly had our best interest at heart and did not play any of those realtor "hidden agenda" games we so often encounter. In purchasing an older home (1930 vintage), he continually looked out for us and efficiently guided us through the whole process. We priced our house to meet our objectives and sought his guidance on how best to secure our new dream home. Less ... More

Blair is absolutely fantastic! He helped us to buy our first home. He showed us probably over fifty different houses and he always took time to educate us what to look for and what to avoid. If he noticed any red flags ? he would tell us right away. Blair is Portland?s native and been in a business for a long time so he knows really a lot about Portland?s real estate market. He is an excellent communicator and he is in touch 24/7 (Blair sorry for all my late night calls and emails :)) . Blair is very proactive and always gives you a lot of alternatives, options, ideas etc. You never feel pushed and I honestly believe that his main goal is to find a right place for you and make you happy with your investment. Getting commission comes a distant third. Being first time buyers we got cold feet a couple times and walked away from one house at very last moment. Most of agents would stop talking to you ? not Blair. His attitude is amazing, always positive, friendly and caring. Don?t get me wrong ? buying a house is still very stressful process however right agent makes a huge difference. We interviewed several other agents and most of them do a very hard sell why we should go with them ? not Blair. During our first meeting ? he told a little bit about his experience, about himself and that?s it. No empty promises, no sales pitch, no ?I?ve been in this industry for 30 years so I know what you want?. You can tell from get go that he is very pleasant, simple, intelligent and knowledgeable guy. We are very happy that seller?s agent was not Blair ? house we bought would be sold long before we got it and for much higher price. After closing Blair stopped by several times and gave us very nice housewarming gifts as well he is still checking with us every couple weeks to see if everything is fine. We can?t be happier with our new place and with Blair as our agent. He is simply the best out there! Less ... More

We contacted Blair a few months ago to ask him to show us one of his listings. At the time, we were not working with a buyer agent because we had had so many bad experiences with local realtors. The last three we worked with were all high pressure and dishonest. In other words, they were anting like stereotypical realtors. After meeting Blair, we realized that not all realtors and shady and dishonest. He was nothing but a true professional from the first time I emailed him. We never felt like he was trying to get us to pay more or steer us into something we weren't comfortable with. We quickly decided that we wanted him to be our agent. Once we found a house, he made the process smooth and almost enjoyable. Best things about Blair Jones: 1. He will ALWAYS get back to you in a very timely fashion. I don't think I ever had to wait more than an hour to get a response form him via email or phone. 2. He's totally up-front and honest about what to expect. 3. He doesn't pressure you or play realtor games. I'll definitely be recommending Blair to all my friends and family. Less ... More

Blair performed exceptionally well in helping me to obtain this property. My initial call for his services was rather sudden, as the same time Blair and I were introduced, I also asked him to begin negotiating my home purchase with the builder. Normally this would not be much of a problem. But Blair was just getting ready to head out of town for a Valentine's Day vacation getaway. I told him it was fine if he followed up when he returned. But Blair insisted on going the extra mile during his vacation in order to keep the deal negotiations ahead of schedule. This was not expected. It was a true example of where Blair clearly exceeded my expectations. The other area where Blair was able to add considerable value was in the negotiations. We asked for quite a bit in our offer, and Blair helped me to get the most out of the deal. I was quite pleased with the price and options for the home. Lastly Blair's organizational skills helped to keep the process on time, and me informed along the way. Less ... More

Blair helped me with my home sale and did a fantastic job. I unfortunately had to do a short sale on the home and he made the process as stress-free and managable as possible. Even though it took us 8 months and lots of patience, he was professional, courteous and knowledgable throughout the entire process. He was always on top of the details and was great with communicating both with me, the bank and the buyer's side of the transaction. I have no hesitation recommending Blair to my friends and family because I know he will take as excellent of care with them as he did with my sale. Thank you Blair! Less ... More

Blair Jones is a KICK A$$ REALTOR! Seriously, you found your guy! We found Blair on Zillow and interviewed him as well as two other realtors. Blair was the clear front runner. His casual confidence set us at ease immediately. He saw our home for the gem it was and helped us set and get an excellent (but fair) price. Blair clearly cares about his clients and is happy to work to get homes sold. We stayed as a 'pocket' listing for about 40 days because we didn't want to list during the holidays and Blair had no problem being patient and waiting for us to be ready. During that time, he came in and took beautiful pictures and built a great website that absolutely drove up interest in the house. He gave us a short but very useful list of things to spruce up. By the time we went live on RMLS, our house was picture perfect and priced right. We received an offer two days later! He walked us through negotiations, inspections, repairs, re-inspections, and signing. He answered all calls and texts immediately and did everything possible to set us (first time home sellers) at ease. I have already recommended him to friends and family! Less ... More

As a first time home-buyer Blair assisted us with all aspects of purchasing a home. This comes with a large array of questions and many prior beliefs formed from others. Blair is extremely knowledgeable and was able to find us the perfect starter house in the greater Portland area. We viewed many homes with Blair and he was able to fine-tune our vision to help us realize what we needed to focus on during the showings. Blair is a great realtor and doesn?t put any added pressures in the already stressful home buying process. He is extremely genuine and will give you his honest and open opinion. We would recommend Blair to any and all looking to buy and/or sell any home! You rock Blair! Less ... More

We had the most wonderful experience with Blair as our realtor. It was amazing. Do to Blair's marketing skills, we received an offer before our house was even listed and before a sign went up in our yard. The first people that saw it eventually bought it. It was always about him caring and meeting our every need. He was ALWAYS accessible by phone, e-mail or text and willing to come to our house anytime we needed him. There were glitches along the way but nothing he couldn't handle with ease and such a positive spirit. And to top it off, he also represented us in the purchase of our new home. We carry his business cards with us in case we talk to anyone needing a GOOD realtor because he's the BEST!!! We would use him again...in a heart beat! It was a special journey that we will never forget and we LOVE our new home. It's perfect for us. Thank you, Blair....SOO MUCH. Less ... More

We initially listed our house with a different realtor. After a few months of dismal performance we searched for a new realtor. We found Blair Jones. And thank God we did! He is absolutely amazing. The short story - he got our house sold in a very short period of time in a terrible market. There have been at least three homes in our neighborhood that other homeowners have not been able to sell. Blair did a tremendous job in his marketing efforts to get our house the exposure that it needed to end up with a sale. On top of his great marketing ability he also has been absolutely amazing in his willingness to meet us when we had time to show us houses, to pull comps, etc..etc.. He genuinely has our best interest at heart. He worked for us to get done what we needed to get done and did not seem to be motivated by money as other realtors seem to be. I think he knows that by doing a good job he will be compensated. We were completely happy to know that he was getting paid a commission out of the deal and he earned every penny. We would highly recommend him to anyone who is in need of a realtor's assistance whether they are my neighbor or my mother. Less ... More

We were seeking an investment property and gave Blair a description of exactly what we wanted. He found many homes that fit our profile, but one stood out to us as perfect. It was a short sale, and Blair stuck through a very long, often frustrating process and brought the deal to a close 4 months later. We were impressed with Blair's research, accessibility, and professionalism. Highly recommend!

It was a pleasure in helping these investors fine a property that they felt was a great investment! Short sales can be difficult and take patience on both sides of the transaction... buyers included! Congratulations on your purchase!

I am a first time home buyer who turned to a family friend for help...and I'm so glad I did. Blair was knowledgeable, friendly, helpful, reliable and very much willing to work with me and help me both figure out and find what I wanted in a home. Like many home buyers now-a-days, I had financing issues making the process seem complex and daunting. Through all this, Blair was informative and insightful in helping me to navigate the home-buying process.

From the very first walk through to recieving our keys, Blair Jones was with us and a gentleman every step of the way. For what can be a very stressful or emotional journey, Blair did a fabulous job walking my wife and I through the home-ownership process. His patience was unconditional. His demeanor was very consistent. And on many last minute occasions, he went well out of his way to meet us for a 1st, 2nd, 3rd, or even 4th preview of the same listing! We are thoroughly happy that my mother introduced us to Blair, because we now have an agent and a friend in the real estate business who we would recommend to our closest family and friends.

I am so thankful Blair was recommended to me when we began our search for a home. What I liked best is that he really listened to what we wanted and he got to know us as people (not just clients). He was patient & optimistic during our search (even during the snow). I loved that he took a genuine interest in matching my family to the perfect place AND even after the sale, he made sure my family was happy with our choice (which we still are).

My husband and I purchased our first home in Portland this past summer. Thanks to Blair's help, the process was much smoother than I expected. What I most appreciated about working with Blair was his optimism! Despite viewing what seemed like hundreds of homes, he never gave up hope that we would find the perfect place for us... even when I was feeling quite doubtful. And Blair was right--we did find the perfect place that we love coming home to every night!

The pictures he took and put on the internet represented the house well showing the updates and features that were of interest to buyers.

I contracted with Blair to sell two homes for my family in 2010. Both properties sold quicker than I anticipated and at prices that met my goal. I was impressed with Blairs marketing efforts. Communication was clear and prompt with both me and the buyers agents. Follow up with prospective buyers was excellent. Blair's a great listener and is diplomatic in offering professional advice.
