Bev is a blizzard of activity and motivation. She is responsive to the needs of her clients, and really knows how to move property. She's the best of the best at what she does, and amazes me in her attention to detail and sincerity of her actions.

Bev and her team provided top notch service to our family. She sold our house within 1 day (we received our first offer 1 hour after the open house)! Because our house sold so quickly we had to scramble to find a suitable home to purchase. Bev showed us many properties that met our criteria and helped us negotiate a good deal on the purchase of our new home (in a highly competitive market). She and her team guided us through the whole buying process and, through her referral network, hooked us up with a great loan person. We highly recommend Bev! Less ... More

Bev was quite knowledgeable of the Clark County regulations even though she works primarily out of Portland, OR. She exhibited and shared a good knowledge of marketing strategies. Her staff were responsive and timely. Our house sold in about a week. Great working with her.

Bev is an outstanding, fair, and honest realtor. She is highly skilled and understands real estate law and the legal processes of buying and selling property in both Oregon and Washington. Having been a builder herself, gives her knowledge and insight into construction that few realtors possess. Bev is a good communicator and very responsive to requests, problems, and client concerns. Even after the sale is complete she continues to express interest and caring toward clients.

I moved from Dallas, Texas in 2013 to the Portland area. I had been corresponding via the website and email with Bev since about 2011! She was encouraging long distance, and then once we moved to the area, very understanding with our need to explore the area and decide where we eventually wanted to "end up". I can't imagine a more intuitive and empathetic realtor than Bev. Personalized attention doesn't even begin to describe the relationship she shares with her clients. We found our Dream Home, and it wouldn't have been possible without the support and expertise of Bev and her team! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts! We will be forever grateful... Less ...

Bev listed and sold our home. She provided prompt responses to our questions and issues that came up. She provided multiple comps to help us set a price and then got our house listed. We were presented offers and she assisted us with countering. I will be using Bev again in the future and highly recommend her.

There is no agent like Bev. She is incredible. I sold my house and I am very happy with the outcome. The listing was great and precise. The pictures on the web site was very professional looking, with the advertising and information reaching out online and flyers. My house needed some repairs or attention after the buyers home inspection. Bev has the excellent resources to take care of your worries and stress and getting the professional help needed to complete the sale making everyone happy and the on going process run smooth. This is my 5th house I have sold and I'm very impressed and glad to have her as my real estate agent, thank you Bev. Less ... More

We as buyers, acquired the name of Bev Blume from some friends. We contacted Bev and were soon in a , new to us, home that fell beyond our expectations. During this time my father moved in with us due to not being able to provide for himself. We put his house on the market through Bev Blume. During the experience of two years we went through many trials and tribulations with this home for sale. Bev was there always to answer any questions or take care of any problems that arose. Finally all of her efforts led to the final sale of the property. We feel that anyone wishing for the best should contact the best; BEV BLUME. No one will give as much expertise as she. Less ... More

My family has dealt with our fair share of agents and Bev was one of the best by far. She also has a great assistant that I was able to get in contact with if she was busy. In the beginning I was not to sure about her because when I requested houses the search was to broad. But when we chose our house she was on it. It was great working with her.

Excellent attitude and enthusiasm for what she is doing! Bev truly loves her job and knows local real estate well which makes house buying much easier and breezier process. She will walk you through house buying experience step by step and answers all your questions and dissolves all the worries. She also has a great strength of extensive constructions knowledge since it was her previous industry. It can help tremendously in your decision making process in case you have any initial concerns or questions about the quality of the possible house prior to formal inspection.

Even her devotion to her clients that she traveled out of her area to get the final papers signed show that she is invested with you 100% all the to the end. You can do no better then that!

How we met: I needed a Realtor in the Lake Oswego area to list my house for sale. I had already been working with Rick, an excellent Realtor in the Boise, ID area for buying a house. He did such a wonderful job of understanding my wife and me and our preferences that I asked Rick if he had any colleagues whom he would recommend in the Lake Oswego area. He deduced from my interactions with him that I preferred a data-oriented Realtor. Rick checked with his professional network and recommended Bev Blume. Researching: After introductions, Bev recommended that I read her reviews on Zillow. Initially, I read all those reviews and was a bit worried. The reviews on Zillow did not mention anything in the Lake Oswego area, nor did they mention anything in the price range in which I hoped to sell. However, all my worries were completely overcome upon meeting with Bev in-person. She did an excellent job of presenting herself as the right Realtor for my wife and me. She showed data on her accomplishments. She showed data on the local market conditions and trends. She gave us straight talk about the areas of our house and property that were great, those that were good enough and those that needed improvement. She suggested not spending money on certain improvements that I was worried about, based on her professional experience. That was a welcome relief! Communication and Advice: Bev and her assistant, Josie, were frequently communicating with me on where we were in the process, what my role/responsibility was, what the next step would be, what the possible hiccups might be and what we would do about them. Any time I had a concern, I would send an e-mail to either Josie or Bev. They were incredibly responsive and helped to usher me through the process. I felt informed at every step. Both Bev and Josie were skilled at reducing my stress level. An example was their communication after each showing of the house. Bev or Josie solicited feedback from the buyer?s agent and gave that unfiltered feedback to me. What did the buyer like? What did the buyer not like? This feedback allowed me to decide what I might need to do to sell the house. Bev would lay out all the options, tell me what the pros and cons were of each, and at my request, tell me what her other clients have done in similar situations. Bev?s open communication allowed me to make better decisions and to know what the consequences would be of each decision that I made. Bev?s advice was particularly helpful in agreeing upon an initial asking price. I had done my own looking around and had an idea of what the house might sell for. I showed Bev my rationale. She agreed with what I had done, but she thought I was asking too little. She recommended increasing the asking price! I have worked with other Realtors over the last 30+ years, and this was a first for me. Other Realtors had tried to get me to lower my price. I suspected they preferred a quicker sale. Bev made it feel like she wanted me to get what I wanted for a price. I must say, that was a very good feeling! There were no unpleasant surprises throughout the entire process from interviewing to closing on the sale, and I attribute that success to Bev?s and Josie?s excellent communication. Negotiation: This was the area where Bev really shone in my opinion. Again she used her style of laying out all the options and telling me what the pros and cons were of each. When I asked for her professional advice, she gave it, again with the positive and negative consequences that I should expect if I followed her advice. (Every decision in life has positive and negative consequences. Knowing them ahead of time is very important in making a decision that I won?t regret later.) I really respected Bev?s approach. I was able to get what we wanted in selling my house. This included not just the selling price, but the timing of our move-out and the repairs that I was willing to perform as well as those I did not want to perform. I wish everyone could have as positive an experience with listing and selling a house as I did with Bev Blume! Less ... More

I feel compelled to write a review of Bev because that is how I chose her researching online. I always appreciate others doing reviews but seldom do it myself. The reviews I saw were very accurate. Bev has a great local knowledge. She listened to us and what we thought. She has excellent negotiation skills which I think brought us a higher sale price in the end. She always returned texts and phone calls promptly. We were out of town a lot while our house was on market and she knew it was important to us to have our alarm on after showings. She made special trips before and after each showing to turn on and off alarm herself. She always went above and beyond from start to finish. I know if you choose her you will not be disappointed!

Amazing is an understatement in describing Bev and her assistant, Josie. Our recent home purchase was not the 1st home we've bought, but Bev was by far the best realtor we have ever worked with! She was always responsive, professional and went above and beyond any expectations. Josie was the same, and had a unique ability to take a frustrating situation and bring it back into perspective. By the time we closed on our house, I was sad that there was really no reason for us to communicate on a regular basis. Bev has made it to our Christmas card list and we will be sure to refer her to our friends and family with confidence. Less ... More

We picked Bev from several realtors that we met with. Bev helped us through a very important live change for my wife, my daughter and myself. I didn't know it could get as good working with a realtor. We were selling our dream home to buy a new dream home because we had out grown the old one. We had a considerable amount of attachment to our home we were selling. It was heart breaking to leave our old home but we needed to upgrade so that our daughter could have her own room and i needed a bigger space for my Recording Studio. Bev helped us find our new perfect dream home, negotiate with the seller (which was not always easy), and she SOLD OUR HOME IN JUST 3 DAYS! It takes a special talent to perform the task of selling and buying at the same time and especially with as much patience and grace as she displays. Bev is extremely responsive to both email, phone calls, is informative and makes you feel like you are the only client she has. We were honored to do business with Bev and would never dream of buying or selling again without her on our team! She has our business and friendship for life and everyone that we know. My family HIGHLY recommends Bev Blume. Less ... More

Bev was phenomenal to us as first time home buyers!! We genuinely knew she cared because she helped teach us everything we could possibly need to know about the process, plus more! We are over the moon with our first house. It was an absolute pleasure learning from this amazing business woman. She helped us find our home, helped us understand the workings of home owning, and has stayed in contact with us and we've been moved in for 2 months now. Bev constantly communicated with us, via every way possible. She was kind with our requests, and helpful in every way. Bev is without a doubt an expert in this process and we couldn't be happier with all her support. After we experienced a realtor who did the littlest possible work for us while we first started looking for homes, we were blown away by how much of her time Bev devoted to us! I have recommended Bev to many co-workers and friends, just hoping others will see how spoiled we were to have her through that process! Bev's work ethic is very remarkable, we are so blessed to have her as a realtor and now friend. Bottom line, she is extraordinary, and if you would like an enjoyable process while looking to sell or purchase a home: just call Bev. You'll see!

Bev was a great sellers representative. I found her on Zillow. She responded to my inquiry quickly and I didn't feel at all pressured when we talked. After meeting her and discussing my needs I found that her presentation, positive "can do" attitude, and her professional demeanor fit well with my style. From the get go she kept me informed on market conditions and buyer activity, didn't BS me about our pricing strategy or prospects for selling, and was quickly responsive and truthful to my questions and thoughts about marketing. Bev aggressively marketed my home, precisely represented my decisions after providing her opinion and advising me of my options, and correctly evaluated prospective buyers intent. She was equally at home on the phone, using email, or texting, and responded quickly every time. I will use her again if I am in need and will highly recommend her to any one who is in need of an agent. If honest and straightforward is your preference, then Bev is your agent. A+++ Less ... More

She took the time to help us narrow down our search and after looking at about 8 homes we found "the one." She was on it.

Bev is an amazing realtor- My husband and I were not the easiest clients, flip-flopping from house to house, and area to area, but she stuck by us! Bev went to bat for us, not only got us an exceptional price for our house, but got the seller to include the appliances and rustic kitchen table my husband fell in love with! When it came to closing, we were able to close a week earlier than expected- Move in earlier and Bev even helped unpack a little of the kitchen stuff- This woman is incredible!

Amazing! It took Bev less than 24 hours to go from my phone call to "pending" on the house of my dreams! Tho we had never even met, I knew from our first conversation that she had the the PERFECT balance of personality, professionalism and knowledge of the current market (that is rapidly changing in this low inventory)! The 5 Star rating she gets from me is understated! If you work with Bev Blume.... you're a very lucky buyer or seller.

Set an appointment with Bev simply to interview her. Had others lined up to interview as well. Met with Bev, walked the house and told her what I was looking for. Bev was very honest and forthright with what she felt I needed to do in order to move the property in the time frame I was working. Needless to say, I cancelled any other meetings with potential agents and signed with Bev on the spot. Great decision in my opinion. Through out the SHORT TIME she had the property under her direction, she kept me up to date on any movement and got things done quickly. Which is exactly what I was looking for. I have zero reservation in recommending Bev and when the time should arise again, I will be reaching out to Bev to sell my existing home and find my family our new home. I applaud her for all her hard work and her ability to get the job done! Less ... More

Bev Blume is very professional and knows the realestate Market inside and out. She is a people person and dedicates all of her time to her clients. She puts the clients needs ahead of her own. I recommend Bev 100 %. I have known Bev for over 20 years and she is one of the most honest trusting people I know. We moved to Redmond and if we move back to Gresham or anywhere close we will contact Bev first. THANK YOU Bev, The Carlson's

THANK YOU for entrusting me with your property! I know sometimes it can be difficult to let someone else handle your financial affairs, let alone a friend. In this case, I am extremely honored to serve and I am HAPPY things turned out the way they did, in a successful sale for YOU!

None. We connected, but it did not work out.
Bev is great! We didn't end up using her due to other reasons out of her control but I wish we had... We will use her next time since we didn't end up selling and will again in the spring.

Bev Blume and The West One team are definately experts, and highly skilled regarding short sales. Short sales are a frustrating deal to take on and their team does with ease and in depth knowledge of the process. Bev took over and made things happen quick. We are so glad we chose her and her expert negotiator Troy. Thank you for all your hard work and getting us an offer on the first showing! I would highly recommend Bev if you want your deal done right and quick.

Bev is absolutely amazing! She was the most helpful real estate agent I've ever worked with. She went above and beyond at every step of the process and made sure we had everything we needed and were comfortable with what we got. She gave us the plain facts and her professional opinion and was always honest and fair with us. Her knowledge and experience made buying our home a smooth and understandable process, even when we complicated things ourselves. Her real estate and building construction knowledge were invaluable to us. I can't recommend her more highly! Less ... More

Bev helped my husband and I buy our very first home in 2012. Without her knowledge of the home buying process and the unique types of loans available, we would not have been able to purchase that home! And I mean that! Our loan officer we were working with was not able to provide us the renovation type of loan we needed and Bev immediately gave us options of loan officers that could get us the loan we needed and still close in time! She genuinely cared about us as clients and supported us during a very stressful time. That is why, when we decided to upgrade our home this past year we didn't hesitate to call Bev! In fact - it was wonderful to see her again! In just 37 days Bev helped us list our home, sell it well over asking price, find, purchase and move into our new home! If you are looking for a real estate agent who knows the market, is extremely reliable, tenacious, responsive, great at negation, keeps her word and goes to bat for you no matter what, then call Bev and her team! I'm proud to call her my realtor for life! Less ... More

Bev is a consummate professional with exceptional personal skills. She knows design and construction, and can highlight the functionality as well as concern that only a top pro builder can do. Her real-estate expertise; home value, neighborhoods, schools, development history -- she knows it, and what she doesn't know, she'll find it -- fast. Bev knows the business! a non nonsense negotiator with great skill for understanding that unique place that brings a seller and a buyer together. Her hallmark in representing the transaction is complete honesty. Once the deal is agreed to, you can count on Bev to artfully guide you through the process of contractual obligations, timelines and institutional requirements. Patience is one of her virtues - she guided our eventual purchase with class and never made us feel rushed, in fact, went out of her way to find properties that allowed us the widest possible choices in order to better define our final decision on a home. And - she is just a delight to be with throughout the course of a day. We cannot recommend Bev more highly; she is the go to person if you are considering a real estate transaction! SIMPLY THE BEST THERE IS . . . Thank you, Bev Susan and Mike Less ... More

Bev just helped us buy our dream home. It took a long time for us to find the right place (and we took a break in the middle to have a baby) but Bev was patient with us and helped us find the perfect home. It was a short sale, and there were a lot of ups and downs in the negotiation and approval process, but Bev helped us stay calm and steered us through. We ended up getting a deal almost too good to be true. She came highly recommended to me and I can certainly recommend her to you.

Many agents offered their service to us, but when we found Bev we knew she was a step above the rest. She went the extra mile and made sure things got done. Bev was very helpful and worked with our schedule. We would definitely recommend her.

Bev has been great to work with. I was a first time seller and the whole process seemed daunting. Working with a true professional like her was very reassuring. We developed a great working relationship right from the beginning.The fact that she used to build homes for a living is very helpful. I would highly recommend Bev Blume and West One properties

I found Bev to be highly motivated to sell my home. She was extremely positive right from the get go. She never doubted that we would get my house sold, and I appreciated that so much. She was there for me every step of the way. If I had a question , she'd respond in a very timely manner. I would recommend Bev Blume to anyone that is either looking for or wanting to sell a home. She's the best!!!!!

I was beyond impressed with the availability, responsiveness, and thoughtfullness which Bev expressed to me . She send me information on hundreds of homes, and expressed the utmost patience as I changed my mind over and over. By getting to know me and asking the right questions regarding my priorities, goals and needs, she accomplished exactly what I needed and hoped I would gain by working with a realtor: providing focus. I can confidently say I now live in my PERFECT dream home, which has everything I wanted and then some, which will meet my lifestyle, community, newlywed, and family needs for years to come. I would recommend her to anyone! She is not just a teriffic realtor, but became my friend which I hope to keep for years to come. Thank you from the bottom of my heart Bev!! Less ... More

Thankful Bev didn't tell us to take a hike after all the houses & time we needed with her...she was always available at the drop of a hat & was VERY knowledgable with the process. She referred us to a lender when we were told we would never qualify and we did & bought our 1st home...we are super happy Bev guided us into the right direction! Will definitely use her in the future when we go to sell & buy again!

Bev Blume understood my needs and my budget and continued to look for a house that would match my requirements. She was always looking and always in contact with me in what she found. She would even go look before to make sure it was worth my time to look. She is very knowledgeable and looks for anything that the buyer would be unhappy with. She was very mindful with school locations and good areas that would be most beneficial for me. I would highly recommend her to anyone! Thanks Bev you the best! Dawn Smith Less ... More

Bev helped us find and buy our first home and she exceeded our expectations for an agent on every level. She was helpful and knowledgeable on everything from searching for homes to inspection and paperwork. Bev took the time to listen to what we were looking for and find us the home that was right for us. Several of the homes we looked at were foreclosures so we had lots of questions about the homes and the purchasing process. She answered all our questions honestly and went out of her way to help us through the entire purchasing process. Bev even kept in contact long after the sale to make sure everything was going smoothly. Less ... More

Bev and I have worked together as a mortgage lender and realtor team representing a buyer with a new home purchase. Bev was very supportive throughout the transaction not just to her buyers, but to me as the Loan Officer insuring thorough communication between all the parties involved in the transaction. Our borrower was a Veteran using his VA Home Loan Benefit for his first home purchase. Veteran home purchasing and loans are unique and Bev was knowledgeable about the process. We would like to become your VA Purchase Sales Team! My company, Wells Fargo Home Mortgage, is currently waiving the Loan Origination/Underwriting and Processing Fee in an effort to support our VA buyers/refinance customers. This may save you hundreds of dollars in closing cost. As the number one lending institution in the US, you will have the benefit of working with a stable, competitive and committed bank. These facts, combined with Bev?s and mine 20+ years experience, will assure you feel you are represented by veterans in our industry! Please consider Bev's services for any purchase or selling transaction! She is confident, knowledgeable and committed to make sure your transaction is completed with as much ease as possible.

Bev was truly a Godsend! There was never any doubt that she had OUR best interest in mind all the time. We often referred to her as "The Bulldog" because we felt like she completely fought for us and stood up for what we wanted. She was patient through the long process of us looking for the PERFECT first house. She understood that my husband and I both had to be in love with the house and never tried to talk one of us into loving a house. Her patience and help paid off because when we finally found our house it was perfect in every way! We know we couldn't have gone through this process without Bev and we highly recommend her. I really thought she was the perfect agent for a first-time home buyer. If we ever buy another house, we will definitely work with Bev again. Less ... More
