Drew McCulloch is exactly what you want in a real estate agent. He is a great communicator, really easy to work with, calm but extremely detail oriented and very responsive. He has been working in the Portland market for a really long time, and his experience shows. In fact, we were referred to Drew by a friend almost 10 years ago who he helped with a home purchase, and like us, anyone who has ever used Drew as a real estate agent goes back to him again and again whenever they need to sell or purchase a home. We purchased our first home with Drew's help, and were thrilled to use his help again when selling this house. Drew has helped us hugely with difficult negotiations for both purchase and sales. He is a great advocate, really giving sound advice and making sure we ended up being protected and benefiting from the agreements made during negotiations. He also gives excellent referrals to contractors, painters, plumbers who do great work at the most reasonable prices in the Portland area, saving us thousands of dollars. Can't say enough good about Drew McCulloch. Less ... More

Drew was a great resource with good contacts to affordable contractors and handyman when we needed to make repairs and address an ant infestation in order to sell. He had good inputs on all decisions but followed our wishes without question through multiple price changes, several open houses, one deal where the buyer backed out, and finally negotiating the sale. He understood and explained the buyers situation - qualification and motivation. I would recommend Drew to any of my friends needing to sell or buy a home. Less ... More

I have sold several houses and working with Drew was by far my best experience. I was selling the house in the Portland area from my home in Georgia. Drew took care of everything. He made sure our price was competitive with the Market Place. He keep me informed on a consistent basis and his follow up was outstanding. Importantly, the house was sold in a timely fashion.

Drew McCulloch assisted us over the course of several months by coordinating our review of properties of interest in the Portland area. His professional assistance resulted in making a choice that was ideal for us. Drew is a highly skilled and personable professional who knows Portland extremely well, and manages details with lightening speed. Drew went beyond the call of duty on many occasions to accommodate our needs. We high recommend him. In the future, we will return to Drew McCulloch for his real estate services in Portland, which is a testimony to the loyalty he has earned from us. Less ... More

Helpful, professional, responsive, informative?working with Drew made my home purchase easy. Within minutes of submitting an inquiry about a house I saw on Zillow Drew responded with detailed information about the property. He also asked more about what I was looking for and set me up to receive daily updated listings via email for the specific area and price range I was interested in. Drew gave me his full attention while touring properties and called me the next day to follow up. As soon as I was ready to make an offer Drew handled everything quickly and efficiently long distance. Amazing! Less ... More

Drew represented me as a buyer's agent and he performed well above my expectations. This is the second house I have purchased but it was the first time working with Drew. Whether I left sent him an email or a cell phone message, Drew was always very quick to respond. Even when he was out of town on vacation and he found someone to cover for him while he was away during our searching, when it came time for us to make an offer he still followed up with me and made sure everything was going smoothly. Whenever negations came up, Drew was quick at drafting new forms and following up with any questions. Drew also had great recommendations for inspection services and arranged everything for me. When there can be so many tasks to perform when buying a house, Drew was a great assistant in all aspects and he took a lot of the stress out of the process. I could always trust Drew would be proactive in any actions that needed to take place without ever having to follow with him to make sure he did it. I would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a property. You won't be disappointed. Less ... More

I found Drew on Zillow based on other people's reviews. I'm happy I chose him. The reviews were right! My house sold in two days!! Everything was handled very efficiently without any worry on my part even though I was traveling out of the country. Drew seems to have excellent marketing skills and contacts and was always very very professional. We closed right on time without anything for me to do but sign paperwork. I felt extremely comfortable working with him. This was the first house I have ever sold and Drew made it so easy and almost fun! Highly recommend! Less ... More

I've bought and sold several residential properties and Drew without question is the best agent I've ever dealt with. We found Drew on the Zillow site and he assessed our needs and made immediate recommendations. The day after I first talked to Drew my wife was in Portland, we are from out of town, and she identified a condo and we made an immediate offer. Mind you I never met Drew in person before our offer, and we handled everything by e-mail and phone. Drew always got back to me immediately with the information I asked for. Drew has a high level of skill and knowledge in the information he provides and listens to his customers needs. He sent me comparable units sold, talked to the selling agent to get a feel of the buyer, and recommended a course of action. Upon acceptance of our offer, he listed our existing condo and in five days we had two offers above list price. Drew handled all negotiations and interactions with all the other agents. Once we had the offers both in place Drew helped me inspect and list out necessary repairs for the new unit and the unit I was selling needed work. Drew has a library of people to do repair, cleaning, appliance repair. The thing I loved was Drew always got back to me whether it was a weekend, or July 4th Holiday, he was always available and gave me a path to solve all issues, or acted as a sounding board to walk me through my options. When you deal with Drew, he makes you feel that your sale is the most important priority in his life, and that I value tremendously. Stop reading this review and give Drew a call! Less ... More

Drew was extremely helpful in our sale of our rental single family house in Sellwood and purchase of a South Waterfront condo. He responded to every request and was invaluable when we were out of town for weeks during this complex process. Drew negotiated with sellers, renters and buyers obtaining fantastic results each time and interfaced with mortgage brokers, 1031 exchange specialists and HOA associations on our behalf.

I connected with Drew after reviewing some local homes on Zillow and wanting to find a recommendation for a realtor to help me take the next step. Drew was very responsive and met me at one of the properties the following day. He hooked me up with a lender and we had an accepted offer within two days. Although that transaction didn't work out due to seller side issues, Drew stuck with me and we found another property that was an even better fit for my need. The purchase and closing process was painless and I had keys in hand 10 days early. I've been living in my new place for 2 weeks now and couldn't be happier. Less ... More

Just finished closing on our place in Portland, OR, and Drew McCulloch was outstanding from start to finish with his frequent updates and overall supervision of the project. Drew acted as our eyes and ears and facilitated each part for us as we are located out of state. He made very helpful and insightful suggestions before listing the property, which made sense and resulted in receiving a quick offer. Thanks, Drew! You're a true pro at this.

Drew is the BEST! He is intelligent, straight-forward and extremely witty. Drew brought me up to speed on the Portland market and guided every step of our recent purchase... no easy task since we live in California. He fit house tours into his packed schedule at the last minute, took care of all the inspections and amazingly answered every communication within minutes -- I never, ever wondered how long I would have to wait to hear from him. In addition, Drew listened patiently about my ideal house and we now own it, at a great price -- thanks to Drew. I cannot recommend this kind, trustworthy man highly enough. Oh, and, ask him about streetcars. Less ... More

Listed home, but didn't sell
Selling a property long distance is never easy especially with a three hour difference in time zones. Drew listed it and another agent with his firm found the buyers. Navigating a special HUD low income loan was very complex but Drew hung in there with me until it closed.

Drew McCulloch is a great real estate agent!! I used Drew to purchase a house in 2004 and then again to sell the house in 2012 and buy another house in 2013. Drew makes the process very easy, and goes above and beyond. He is extremely knowledgeable on the real estate market, and has the expertise in every area of selling or purchasing a house. When we sold our house he hired a professional photographer out of his budget to make your house look the best it can. We sold our house in two weeks! Drew responds quickly to your requests. If I called, emailed or text, Drew would respond within minutes. I would highly recommend Drew. He is very friendly, kind and just around great to work with. Less ... More

My wife and I started looking at condo's/townhouses in January, 2012. Over the year we went back and forth on wether we would purchase in Portland, but Mr. McCulloch stayed with us, listening to our likes and dislikes. We came close to purchasing several condominiums, but could not quite pull the trigger. Still he stayed with us and found a townhouse that more than met our need, being a perfect fit to our want list. In the closing process, he was more than thorough and helpful, making sure that we had address all the necessary items. He and his staff were very professions and his assistance allowed us to get the deal done with minimal effort.

This was my first home and due to some extenuating circumstances, I was without transportation, Drew drove out of his way to pick me up and drive me around to look at potential properties, in which we didnt find anything that looked good, about a week later, a for sale sign caught my eye and I immediately called Drew. After I knew I was interested in this property, Drew took care of the rest. With a no B.S. assessment and professionalism as well as the feeling that your dealing with a friend thats looking after your best interest, I recommend Drew to my family and friends, hands down. I work overseas, so a solid realtor was key to getting this purchase done without all the headache. Good experience all the way. Less ... More

We found Drew by chance on Zillow and we are so glad that we did! Drew is patient and positive. He does not pressure one into any decision. He educates and supports. Drew returned all of our correspondence immediately - even when he was on vacation in the middle of nowhere in Montana! He stuck with us when we wanted to see a ton of houses on a single evening - taking him away from his family for hours at a time. And he was there when we decided to pull back - giving us space to think and we felt we had no pressure at all from him to buy. We were first time home buyers and Drew taught us everything we now know. He was a kind and cheerful guide through what would otherwise be a stressful process. He made us feel confident even when I was asking, probably, the most elementary of questions. - of which I had many! We had a great experience with Drew and couldn't recommend him more. We plan to stay in touch with him now that our home buying experience is finished. Our three year old son is always asking where he is! Less ... More

We both bought and sold a house we loved with Drew, and he's never steered us wrong. His calm manner is a comfort through what can be a stressful time. He's always incredibly responsive, an assertive and savvy marketer, hugely patient, and we never felt any pressure either as buyers or sellers. We always felt like we were in the driver's seat, but with an informed and ready adviser/partner at our side who had our best interests in mind. Did we mention that, after following his advice about staging and refreshing, we sold our house in less than three days for significantly above the asking price?! Less ... More

I am currently in the process of using Drew to help me obtain our home in Portland, OR. We live out of state and I've been to Portland once to do a first round of house hunting. Our jobs take us all over the country so finding the time to get up to Portland to look at houses, much less move there permanently, has been challenging. Drew has been patient and understanding and is very willing to work with our schedules. I appreciate that immensely. A lot of my family has settled in Portland so I am really looking forward to calling it home - someday soon. Drew is from Portland so his knowledge of the neighborhoods and the markets is great. I would recommend him to anyone searching for a house there. Less ... More

I was most lucky to fall into the hands of Drew McCulloch! I found him unfailingly responsive, getting me information, forms to sign, putting me in touch with inspectors, radon testers, etc., etc. If there was ever a delay in the information that was forwarded to him, he kept me aware of the fact that he had not forgotten about the issue, but was just waiting on someone else. He has great knowledge of the home-buying process, and was wonderful about educating me as well. He maintained a scrupulous professionalism at all times, as well as a sense of humor. Not only does he make certain that the process is transparent at all times, he goes out of his way to avoid even the suspicion of conflict of interest problems. I would have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone, and will seek him out in any future transactions I am involved in. I am grateful that he was a major part of my first home-buying experience.

It was a complicated short sale, and Drew went to great lengths to make sure all parties involved were on the same page and understood their deadlines so the short sale wouldn't derail.

Drew exceeded all our expectations as our listing agent. We have worked with him before to buy property and have always been impressed. This was our first time selling a house, and his skill truly amazed us. He was very thoughtful and reasonable in his recommendations on how to prepare the house for sale. His marketing and networking brought an incredible amount of excitement to our listing. Through the negotiations and closing, he strongly advocated for us and succeeded in finalizing a very fair deal. In the end, we've closed less than six weeks after listing the house! Especially in this down economy, we could not have been happier. We always find Drew easy to reach. He's also always quick to take tasks on and see them to completion. He really takes ownership of the sale process. As the homeowners, we really had a very easy job in the end. Less ... More

Immediately upon meeting Drew, we knew we had found the perfect realtor to help us purchase our first home. Drew was friendly, knowledgeable, and very attentive and accommodating to our needs. He was able to show us homes we inquired about on short notice, and throughout the whole process, was impressively responsive to emails, calls, and requests. With Drew's help, we found a home we loved within our price range within about a month and a half. As part of our contract with the seller, we asked them to provide permit documentation for some electrical work and a new beautiful new deck they had built. Little did we know that the deck wasn't quite built to code; we ended up having our closing delayed for about a month and a half because of this (largely because of the holidays and the city of Portland was very strict with their permitting process--we actually felt bad for the seller). Anyways, Drew did a fantastic job of staying on top of the situation and pushing the seller to get the work done quickly. He provided us with frequent updates. All throughout the process, and when the time came to finally close, Drew made all the steps very smooth for us and guided us through everything. We can't say enough just how much we appreciated his attentiveness and commitment to us as a client. We will definitely use Drew in the future for selling/buying, and would recommend him to our friends. Less ... More

Drew contacted me about a property we were interested in for over a year to tell me it was up for sale. Drew helped us assess the properties worth and negotiate a very good price for the property. Drew walked us through the entire process and saw that every step along the way was completed to our benefit and satisfaction. Drew stressed due diligence through the inspection process and the deal was closed in a clean and punctual manner. Overall, the experience was excellent. This is the third property we have bought with Drews help, and he also sold one home for us. Drew has an extraordinary sense of the housing market and has repeatedly lead us in the right direction. The properties we have purchased have all appreciated (even in this crazy market) and I credit much of that to Drews expert advice and guidance. I would recommend Drew to anyone looking to buy or sell a property. Less ... More

Drew really earned his commission! From the beginning the buyer (the other guy) was rude and contentious. Drew was polite, of course, and persistent, with my best interests at heart. He worked through all of the buyers demands with patience, always kept me in the loop, explained everything and answered my questions truthfully. I really appreciated the depth of his experience and his general optimism. He answered his phone every time I called and always tried to make things easier for me. I will never have to sell a house again but I will recommend Drew to everyone!! I hired Drew when my first agent was unsuccessful. Drew was always upbeat and realistic. When the inspections found some problems with the foundation of my 102 yr old house Drew did all the negotiations with the service contractors: foundation, oil tank removal, some beetle removal, and all these workmen were handled by Drew, saving me much anxiety. Drew goes the distance and more for his clients. This guy is truly a keeper. Less ... More

Drew helped us find and buy our first house 6 years ago, and more recently he helped us find and buy a new house, and sell our old house. 6 years ago we were referred to a different realtor at the same agency. She worked with Drew, and so introduced us and Drew became our realtor. We were first time home buyers then, and were anxious and inexperienced. Drew was perfect- we couldn?t have asked for a better realtor. He spent a lot of time in an initial meeting with us finding out what we were looking for, and then took us to many many places. When we walked into our first house, we knew right away it was the house for us. Things didn?t go well initially and another bid was taken, then that deal fell apart, so we ended up being able to purchase the house. This was quite a roller coaster and Drew handled our emotions really well- we were really disappointed when we thought the deal wasn?t going through, he helped us through that like a pro. We decided over a year ago that we needed more space and there was no question that we would call Drew again. We contacted him, and again he sat with us and in a detailed, long meeting he understood what we were looking for this time round. We looked at a lot of places, and then decided we needed to put things on hold for a year when our son arrived. Drew was great about this delay- he never pressured us, or contacted us during this time- he was patient and waited for us to get back in touch with him. We really appreciated that- Drew NEVER pressures you- he always gave us the time and space to make decisions. And, he set us up with an email alert that gave us info. on houses that met our requirements and neighborhoods and it was great to get to look at those while we were ?on hold? so that if something really great came along, we could call him. We saw a house on an open house and contacted Drew that Sunday. On Tuesday we were at the house with 2 contractors (Drew arranged) to give us a sense of the cost of the renovations the house needed before making a bid. That is how Drew works- you mention an idea or something you?d like to do, and within the day (actually usually a couple of hours) it is done. Before we knew it we were bidding on our new house and again Drew?s experience of the market was astounding. He gives great advice and his honest opinion on what he thinks the market supports for a price, but then IT IS ALWAYS UP TO YOU to give the bid/price that you want. Again, he NEVER pressures you. When it came to selling our house again Drew was a pro. His team put together the BEST marketing flyer for our house that I have ever seen. The pictures were outstanding, the layout professional but different from the ?routine?. Our house sold quickly ? that was thanks to Drew. And with a baby at home, it was a blessing that we didn?t have to deal with weeks or months of showing our home. We cannot say enough positive things about Drew McCulloch. If you use him you WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED. Drew has a really great skill of getting to know you and what you want/need in a home and finds it for you. He has done it twice for us. He sold our house in record time. He was ALWAYS available for advice and responds in RECORD TIME. We are both busy professionals and Drew would always accomodate our schedules. We called him frequently for handymen, electricians, plumbers, roofers, cleaning people, flooring companies, etc? and we were never disappointed with his referrals. And aside from the business aspect of wanting an experienced, professional, available realtor- which Drew is, the other really great thing about Drew is that he is FUN TO WORK WITH. We were actually sad to not have reasons to call him anymore. Go with Drew McCulloch- whether you are buying, selling, or both- he will make it work for you. Less ... More
