Alicia was great to work with. My husband and I recently purchased a home in the Beaverton area. This was our second time to buy a home so we where familiar with the process, but also knew how important it have an advocate in the process. She was extremely responsive and knew the market very well including relationships with other relators. She was always there when we needed her and we would highly recommend her.

Alicia and Bobbi are veteran realtors who are very familiar with suburban areas south of Portland. They know the market and property values really well. But most importantly, the thorough service that they provide will guarantee that a sale is beneficial for both buyers and sellers. They are an unbeatable team!

We recently had to move our grandmother out of her home of 55 years and are so grateful we had Alicia as her realtor because she was so fabulous the whole way through. She was so sensitive in making grandma feel comfortable and well cared for in such a big transition in her life. Alicia even came out to the assisted living facility to sign papers! I would highly recommend Alicia to anyone I know. She is such a joy to work with and is very good at what she does!!

Alicia has made both selling and buying a home such an enjoyable process when it could be stressful. She is knowledgable, very efficient, kind and hardworking. Bottom line, she gets the job done. Alicia truly wants to help you find the right home and we felt like she had our best interest in mind the whole time. It was so refreshing to work with someone who wasn't just trying to make a buck off of us. She really listens to what you want and is super trustworthy. I would recommend Alicia to anyone buying or selling their home in a heartbeat. Less ... More

My wife and I met Alicia after TWO coworkers (that did not know each other) both recommended Alicia for a real estate agent. After our first meeting with Alicia, she has us sold. We were first time home buyers and Alicia made us feel excited, confident, and comfortable that we were going to get the right house. And, she guaranteed us that she wouldn't let us move into a house we neither couldn't afford or couldn't maintain. Over the next few months, Alicia helped us through the process, taking the time to get to know us and what we really wanted. As we got closer to putting a bid in, she educated us on what makes houses livable and good investments. Once we found THE house, Alicia fought hard for us and eventually got us the deal that we needed to buy. We couldn't have asked for a better real estate agent. We would recommend Alicia to anyone and everyone. Thank you Alicia for helping us be happy homesteaders! Less ... More

Alicia helped me sell my home this past week so that I can move across the country. I work a lot and travel frequently for business, but Alicia wasn't daunted by that. During this process I traveled both across the country and across the world, and yet Alicia still did a wonderful job communicating with me, delivering documents to me, and pushing through the closing process. She consistently took responsibility for things so that I had little stress or concerns. One situation that stands out in this process was the house inspection. The inspector got to the house and found that I had lost my roof cap in a major windstorm a couple days before. I was unreachable in business meetings, but it was supposed to rain that night, so Alicia took charge. She worked immeasurably hard to find a contractor who would get to the house that same afternoon to fix the roof before the weather changed. By the time I got out of my meeting, Alicia had everything handled! All-in-all, Alicia is a persistent go-getter! You would be lucky to work with her! Less ... More

Bobbi has helped me sell and buy two houses in the past 10 years. She is very professional and does her research in regards to the ever changing market. Bobbi is very detailed and organized. She made the entire process go very smoothly so all we had to do was focus on moving. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

We are so happy we worked with Bobbi during our 2013 home sale and purchase. It turned out very well, and we are extremely happy. In looking back, its clear to me that's Bobbi's #1 priority was to make sure we were happy thru out the process. It can be a major life event, and again Bobbi made sure at the end of the day it was a positive experience. I'm also impressed by how she made upsides out of obstacles, asked for things on our behalf we would not have thought of. She was there when it mattered. She was there when we needed her, day and night, week days and weekends. Less ... More

Bobbi is exactly the type of real estate professional you want on your team if you are looking to buy or sell. We have used her for both types of transactions, and she is fantastic. On the buy side, she takes a lot of time to understand what you are looking for, and tries to match your expectations. She does not sugar coat anything when you see a place that is not up to par. Her honesty is appreciated and refreshing. On the sell side, Bobbi really know how to navigate the Portland market. She is professional yet firm, and knows the ins and outs of the process. She sets reasonable expectations and then exceeds them without fail. We recommend Bobbi without any hesitation or reserve. Less ... More

Bobbi is the real deal! She worked with us for over two years in our hunt for the perfect home. She was tireless, gave great advice and totally patient and understanding. When we finally found the home we wanted, she got our offer submitted fast, ensuring that our's was at the head of the pack. Her experience and area knowledge really helped us to make smart decisions and feel confident when formulating an offer.

When we finally decided to move from California to Oregon, we had no idea of how to proceed. Fortunately, I was directed to Bobbi through a broker whose website I had been trolling for months. Sight unseen, she took us on and, through examining our preferences in the RMLS properties she sent us, developed a good sense of what we were looking for. When we were finally able to get to Portland to visit, Bobbi was prepared with listings that seemed like a good fit, and she showed us every property in which we had shown an interest. She was competent, professional, and fun to be with. In the two-and-a-half days she devoted to us, she carefully noted what we were drawn to, and what we didn't like. She was quick to tell us when something would not work, but also suggested ways in which something might be tweaked to meet our needs. That trip ended with us making an unsuccessful back-up offer on a house we really liked, but were a day late in discovering. We felt complete trust in Bobbi, and although we could not return to Portland for several weeks, felt comfortable in her judgement of the houses that we identified from her daily emails of available properties. She dutifully checked out every house in which we expressed an interest, to the extent of measuring closets and photographing kitchens! Based on her reports, we made unsuccessful offers on three houses. In every instance, Bobbi had all the paperwork completed in a trice, and worked so well with our lender that our pre-approval letters were often updated within minutes of her request. At last we were able to return to Portland, specifically to see a house on which our offer had been rejected on the grounds that we had not set foot in it. We had a couple of back-up properties in mind, which Bobbi showed us after we saw what I thought was my dream house. Then Bobbi told us that there was one more house she wanted us to see, but that there was "something missing". Well, it didn't have a garage, an item which had been on our list! The rest of the house was perfect. We made an offer the next morning, which was accepted by that evening, and the day after that, we were able to tag along for the inspection that Bobbi was able to arrange! She successfully negotiated the accommodations we requested of the sellers and followed up on our behalf to see that all had been accomplished. Buying a house a state away was a challenge for all of us, but Bobbi was there for us throughout the entire process. She is untiringly supportive, direct, and cheerful. In the few instances when she was not available, her partner, Alicia, made sure we were well looked after. I don't know if I can ever express how blessed I feel that Bobbi took the time to tune into our needs as well as wishes, and brought us to the very happy conclusion of our search. She never tried to sell us a house, but truly worked to find the house that we wanted to buy. Less ... More

Bobbi is an amazing realtor. We had very specific demands. We wanted to stay in an area close to my husbands work, but we wanted a home of an age pre-1950s, which was difficult since this entire area was developed mostly in the 1970s and beyond. Bobbi worked with us for 6 months to find a perfect home. It met all our demands. Bobbi also met all our demands, she worked tirelessly to help us get exactly what we were looking for at a price that was truly unbelievable. Every time I walk into our new home I can't believe it is ours. It really is exactly what we wanted and we couldn't have done it with out Bobbi. I can recommend her whole heartedly. Bobbi Inman is a consummate professional. Hire her you won't be disappointed. Less ... More

In a competitive market, sometimes things need to happen fast. That was one of the many reasons my wife and I chose Bobbi as a Realtor. She responded to all our questions within the hour, no matter how unreasonable, and was always a text or email away. This was especially important to my wife and I who are two busy professionals with not a lot of opportunities for phone call throughout the day. We also appreciated that we always worked directly with her and not an assistant. Bobbi, who is very knowledgeable about Portland proper, was able to identify neighborhoods that fit our lifestyles and needs. She was gracious enough to spend a whole day driving us around touring neighborhoods in addition to homes. But Bobbi's greatest value came during the negotiation and closing process. She was able to help us negotiate successfully and really put our interests first. As first time homeowners, a lot of the process was confusing and she was very patient with us and eased many of our concerns. When seeking advice, she always had a friendly tone but was also straight-forward with us, which was exactly what we needed. And she was very creative and effective in solving any problem along the way. I would not hesitate to recommend Bobbi to anyone and hope to use her services again for our next home purchase. Less ...

What a pleasure it was to work with Bobbi, she is wonderful to work with. I'd have no hesitation at all to use her again or recommend her to other people. She is very professional, organized and really knows her stuff. She made the process as painless as it could be and did a fantastic job of selling our house. She had the perfect strategy to sell it, which allowed me to maximize the gain on it. She was there with me every step of the way and communicated exactly what did and didn't need to be done. And she did it with a smile on her face and added a sense of humor to a difficult personal situation. Without question, I'd contact Bobbi again for any real estate needs I will have. Less ... More

I'm so thankful that Bobbi Inman was recommended to us! Bobbi and her business partner Alicia Dart are fantastic. My husband and I were fist time home buyers with a small budget and a lot of questions. They helped us understand all the nuances of buying a home. We got a lovely little house in Sherwood that matched our style and our budget. They were knowledgeable and professional, and are very kind, pleasant people.

If you're looking through these reviews it's probably because you're in the market for a realtor. Stop. Now. I'm serious, stop searching. You will not find a better realtor than Alicia. When I told people earlier this year that I was seriously considering buying my first home I was inundated with loving warnings. "It'll be worth it, but be prepared to be stressed." "You'll have to look through 100 homes before you find one that you like even a little bit." "Everyone will try to talk you into a home you can't afford." "Closing time is a nightmare." None of this was true with Alicia. She listens to you...really listens to you. She won't try to upsell you, or feed you a line about a home just to close a sale. I really appreciated her honest opinion about some of the places we saw. I also appreciated that she never showed me a place that was outside of my range. Other things that stand out about her are: ?Her personality- she is so likeable and immediately puts you at ease ?Her ability to explain (in simple terms) the intricate process of buying a home ?The way she handled the negotiated repairs with the sellers when they became difficult right before closing ?She never made me feel like I needed to follow up with her-- she was "on the ball" with everything ?She has connections (lender, repairs, inspection) who can be trusted ?How she followed up with me well after I bought the house I wish I could give Alicia 100 stars. She's that good. Less ... More

Alicia was awesome - I cannot recommend her enough! We found Alicia from reading reviews and decided she would be perfect to help us buy our home in West Linn. Little did we know that we were getting the best! Since we were moving from California, all of this had to be done long distance. Alicia went above and beyond our expectations. She previewed all the houses we were interested in, gave us her honest opinion about homes and was there for us every step of the way. Alicia helped to coordinate everything that we needed done....new roof, new furnace installed, inspections, etc - all while we were still in California. She was always one step ahead of us in taking care of things. She was extremely professional and is so experienced....we had no worries! When we flew up for our loan signing, Alicia was there to make sure everything went smoothly. Alicia will definitely be the first one we call should we ever need to buy/sell another home or if anyone we know is buying/selling a home - without hesitation!! Less ... More

Alicia Dart and her partner Bobbi Inman are the best realtors anywhere. They are kind, conscientious, and complete professionals. I can and do recommend them to all of my friends and family and will most certainly call them the next time we purchase a home. My husband and I had previously purchased a house in another state and were a bit nervous about going through the process again. Alicia and Bobbi far exceeded all our hopes for a realtor. At our first meeting, Alicia came to our house and really listened to what we wanted. After discussing our needs, Alicia carefully previewed many houses, saving us time and energy in the search process. Alicia is undoubtedly a person of integrity?she wants you to have the right house for you. We came close to purchasing a home that had foundation problems that were only revealed in the home inspection, and rather than going for an easy sale, Alicia advised us to wait for a better property. When we closed on our home Alicia graciously ushered us through the inspections, appraisals, and repairs, and once again, went above and beyond in dealing with the many parties involved. Alicia and Bobbi truly are the best at what they do. If you are considering purchasing a home, call them. It will be the best decision you?ll make. Less ... More

I contacted Alicia for help in buying a home. She was unable to help us in the area that we wanted to purchase a home, so she offered to help find a realtor. She researched several and recommend a perfect fit for what we needed. She highly recommended our lender Cheri Frazell who was also great. She checked in along the way to make sure we were being taken care of. It was more than we expected, but we appreciated that she cared and wanted to make sure the realtor was a good fit for us.

I?m not sure if this review will do justice to the experience we had with Alicia Dart and Bobbi Inman from Knipe Realty. Alicia and Bobbi helped us buy our first home! We all know how difficult it can be when buying your first home. With the help, guidance, experience, and encouragement (I never thought I would say that about real estate agent?s) we were able to buy the home that fit all of our needs, and we had a lot of them. If I could paint a word picture I?d say?working with Alicia and Bobbi is like finding the right barber, or hair salon. When you find one that understands what you want, and how you want it you don?t need to look anywhere else. You just walk in and sit down explain what you want and consider it done. The right way, the way you imaged it would be. Less ... More

I have been on Zillow for several years and never written a review, but the fantastic experience my wife & I had selling our home with Alicia Dart & Bobbi Inman from Knipe Realty warranted a shout out. These two ladies are amazing!!! We had a complicated transaction that we laid out for them when we initially met. There were several different entitites that all needed to cooperate in order to make the sale of our old house possible. Alicia had to juggle several moving parts to make this happen and she took this challenge head-on, while keeping us informed every step of the way. Both Alicia & Bobbi were also very responsive whenever we had a question/concern. They promptly return our phone calls and emails even into the late evening. Alicia & Bobbi have a ton of experience in the real estate business and that showed up during our home sale. Without boring people with the all the details, my wife and I came out on top with regards to several small(er) matters, which all added up in the end and made our home selling experience a great one. Alicia was reccommended to us by a friend and I don't think we could not have found a better real estate team if we tried. We would HIGHLY reccomend them whether you are buying or selling your home!

Alicia was the absolute best realtor my husband and I have worked with - by far the best. She was with us every step of the way. To start out, she knew A LOT about Wilsonville, OR and the surrounding areas, which was where we were looking for a home. Looking back, we are so glad that we listened to her advice. She helped us pick out the perfect home for us; we are so happy with our purchase! Alicia is really committed to helping her customers find the home that best fits their needs. She won't be satisfied with her work unless she knows that her customers will be happy with their home long after the purchase is complete. This is just one aspect of her great character ? Once we found our home and began going through underwriting, Alicia never left our side. She was constantly getting updates from everyone involved and letting us know how things were going. Alicia new the timeline that we needed to be on to close on time, and made sure all work up to that date was complete - on time. She acted as a cushion when the seller needed anything, leaving only the necessary work for my husband and I to complete. She was excellent at following up with our requests and made sure that everything we needed done to the house was complete. There was nothing that Alicia wasn't on top of on our behalf. On closing day, she came to the signing with us, looked over anything she had concerns about, and answered any of our questions. A few hours later, we met at our new home and she handed us our keys (she had picked them up for us). Her work was done in our eyes, but then she brought in flowers and a basket of goodies (she'd obviously been listening to what my husband and I liked) to warm our new home. Alicia is truly remarkable. She is an excellent listener and really caters her recommendations and services to her customers? needs. She is excellent at following up and is loyal and reliable every step of the way. She is patient with every request, fun to talk with, and a good communicator. Overall, I would HIGHLY recommend Alicia. Until you've worked with her, you haven't known how valuable a realtor can be to your home buying process. Less ... More

My husband and I had finally made the decision to buy our first home. I have never been through the process of looking for a home and was extremely hesitant to start the process. The first time I met Alicia, all my fears were put to rest. She was friendly, personable, and knowledgeable. The most important thing about Alicia is that she listened to what our wants and needs were. She didn?t pressure us about anything but still gave us the information that we needed to hear. At the beginning of our process, Alicia and my husband exchanged emails and calls about what we wanted and set up a date to drive around and look at houses. She came prepared for the day and we actually found our house on that day. Since Alicia is on top of everything and extremely efficient, our offer was put in, countered and accepted that same day. She answered every single question we had and walked us through every single step of the way. She was available whenever we called and if she missed our call, she responded quickly. I know she was working with other people at the same time as us but it didn?t feel like it. It felt like we were her sole focus. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Alicia Dart. She made our house hunting/buying experience so easy I still can?t believe we have our house and that we found it and moved in within 28 days. If we ever decide to move again and she?s still in the business, we will go back to her. Less ... More

We lived out of state and wanted to retire in Oregon. Our daughter recommended Alicia Dart to help us find a place. The real estate at the time was hot. Anything that was in our price range sold in a few days and usually had multiple offers. When we did find a house it had 3 other offers on it. Alicia helped us write an creative offer and we got the house. It needed some work on it and since we were out of state, Alicia not only found contractors for us but met them at the house and got us multiple bids!

Let me start by saying I have had terrible experiences with realtors, like five houses in, crying in the car, saying I never want to do this again, type of experiences. Needless to say I was nervous to start this new search in new state, however my nerves were calmed after the first day. They, Bobbi Inman and Alicia Dart, completely went above and beyond what a realtor has to or even should provide. If you're coming from another state and want to know the best places for the type of person and life style you live they will help you make a good decision while navigating the many eclectic, and diverse communities that Portland and its surrounding suburbs have to offer. They aren't just trying to get you a great house for now, they are trying to think about the whole process like the business transaction we sometimes forget it really is, they'll recommend a home that in ten years they're excited to resale for you if you decide to do so. To me this was really important it's not just your new home it's a very large investment, and if you want someone experienced, compassionate and responsive to be your guide through the process I strongly recommend Alicia Dart and Bobbi Inman.

I thought I knew what a good Realtor was until I met Alicia. She absolutely blew the other two Realtors we had worked with in the past out of the water! She is so extremely knowledge and attentive, she is always available, and she goes ABOVE and beyond for her clients! The real estate market where we were looking is very competitive and when good houses come up, they sell within days. We finally found our dream house and there were multiple offers. So Alicia made special arrangements to meet with the seller and her agent to present our offer in person! She was able to convince the seller that we loved the house the most and would take the best care of it. Even though they had a higher offer, the sellers chose our offer because they loved Alicia so much!! I truly believe if it wasn't for her genius idea to present our offer in person we might not have gotten our dream house. She's the best! I tend to be a skeptic when I start working with someone new, but I truly trusted Alicia and felt like she our best interest in mind at all times. I couldn't recommend her enough! She is truly as good as it gets. Less ... More

What a wonderful experience working with Alicia was. She is professional, personable and dependable. She arrived for our first meeting well prepared with market data, but no preconceived pricing information on Moms house, until she had a chance to review the property. I was impressed with her approach and openness about the process. After interviewing three other realtors, I chose Alicia for her Oregonian friendliness and professionalism. She exceeded our expectations. The house sold in two days, and over asking price. She was compassionate and sensitivity to my elderly Moms needs and wants. She went out of her way to be accommodating and we feel like she became a friend of our families in the process. I can highly recommend Alicia for all your residential needs. She took care of ours.

Alicia assisted us in selling our home and we could not have asked for a better realtor. Our move was sudden and she was able to have her initial meeting with us on short notice. Alicia has a wealth of real estate knowledge and experience and was able to answer all of our questions. She also knows the Portland metro area well and we found that very helpful. Alicia walked us through the selling process and assisted us every step of the way. She always quickly responded to phone calls and e-mails and maintained communication through the entire process. She is very detail-oriented and always follows-up. We had a few bumps along the way and Alicia was always there to talk us through the issue and remained calm and positive. Alicia was able to refer us to several different quality professionals and has many connections in the real estate community. In the end, our house sold and we were satisfied with the results. We would highly recommend Alicia as a real estate agent. We moved out of state and wish we could take her with us to find our new home.

Alicia was everything we needed in a realtor and more. I initially decided to interview her based on the great Zillow/Yelp reviews and from the first meeting I knew she was someone we could trust for honest, straight-forward advice. She made the first-time home buying process so easy on us and was very fun to work with! She listened to our needs, gave us direction when we were uncertain, and walked us through each step of the process. There were many of issues and repairs that had to be worked out, but she managed them all and always kept us in the loop. We also used Alicia's connections for mortgage lender, home inspector, plumber, etc. It was wonderful not to have to search for a team of people and Alicia coordinated everything. In the end, we closed on time (a big deal given the repairs that were needed), and we couldn't be happier. She even helped us with a few lingering issues after the close.

My wife and I purchased a home in Tualatin from Alicia in 2003. We were young first time home buyers and had a limited budget. I remember her spending a lot of time educating us, wanting to make sure we understood what we were doing. She fought for us. On the closing day we arrived to a dirty house, a bachelor pad. That was unacceptable to her. She got on the phone immediately and had a cleaning crew there within hours. Which was great given my wife was 7 months pregnant. 2 years later we were transferred to the east coast. Of course, she was the first person we called. She sold the house in under 30 days. Since leaving Portland we have bought and sold 2 more homes. Without a doubt, our experience in Portland has been the best. Less ... More

There are not adequate words to express how grateful my husband, mom and I are to have met Alicia and Bobbi and to have had their knowledge, counsel, support and friendship throughout the buying and selling process. We sold both our homes and purchased one together. Alicia and Bobbi were available whenever we had questions or concerns and were fierce but professional advocates...always looking to craft a win-win but always on our team first and foremost. In addition to being so supportive and responsive, the facts speak for themselves. Within two days of listing, our home had four offers. My mother's condo also moved quickly despite some concerns that were raised by her buyer due to the HOA. Without the knowledge and skill that these ladies possess, we may not have been able to work through those issues and successfully close. We could not be happier in our new home and without Alicia and Bobbi it would not have been possible. The only negative is that I don't get to talk to Alicia or Bobbi every day anymore...But we now have new friends who just so happen to be real estate experts. :) thank you!!! Less ... More

Alicia was awesome. She was continuously available and made a miracle happen through her expertise and patience as we shopped for our first home on a very tight time frame. She devoted hours to taking us on home tours and brokering a number of failed offers before we found the final, perfect fit--within just a few weeks. She recommended great people to help us close on our home within less than a month. I would definitely say that she goes above and beyond the call of duty. She made our first home-buying process as smooth as possible. I would recommend Alicia to anyone. Less ... More

Alicia was the perfect fit for the emotional property my family was requested to sell by my late father. After evaluating and analyzing many qualified real estate agents, I hand picked Knipe Realty for their knowledge of the area, reputation and education of their industry. I found Alicia to be highly responsive with a keen eye, who listened while giving advice when reviewing the property. Her knowledge was key to the direction our family needed to take to get the property in the hands of the right buyer as we've never gone through an experience like this before. We valued her recommendations, for she was spot on in industry knowledge, expertise and advise. This being a multi-acre property with many considerations like a well, septic system, and many pastures capable of containing several types of animals, Alicia, based on her sound professional advise, guided us in making decisions that were paramount to improving the property and attracting the right buyer. From the beginning, we found her to be an enjoyable person whom we hired the first day of meeting. Alicia is personal, highly knowledgeable, and does her homework. This is what makes her so unique in that she listens, evaluates, reviews, and gives crucial, supportive advice when you need it most. My family is so thankful we had her in a time when we had a loved one pass away, knowing we had to sell and list a property we loved so much. Alicia is now our family's go to professional real estate agent, whom services we'll be using again in the very near future. Less ... More

Working with Alicia is great! After searching for months on our own, my wife and I decided it was time to enlist the help of a Realtor and decided to try Alicia based on other reviews and her proximity to where we were hoping to live. I can say that have been in our new home for a few weeks now and feel great about the house, and price, that we ended up with! Between my wife and I, we had bought a few houses in the past and left with lackluster experiences with the Realtors used in those purchases. Working with Alicia was very different. She was very informative about what we should or could expect and was always available or very prompt about returning calls, voicemails or texts if we had questions. She even managed to slip in a family vacation to Mexico during the process, but her teammate Bobbi Inman stepped in seamlessly and we didn't miss a beat! We were put in an tough position by the mortgage company, which made the sale of our old house and purchase of the new house pretty stressful, but Alicia was always there to talk things through to the point that I started to feel guilty with how often I called. Even so, she would always be available to talk us off the ledge and always remained a joy to work with through the financing shenanigans! The folks that Alicia recommended to us for inspections, title, etc. were also all very professional, knowledgeable and communicative, which was a far cry from past experiences that I have had. I think this is undervalued and very key, since these ancillary pieces play a huge role in a home purchase and can affect whether you walk out on a purchase, how you learn of and negotiate various repair items and the overall timeline of your purchase. Overall, Alicia was everything that we had read about in other people's reviews and were extremely satisfied with her! Less ... More

We would highly recommend Alicia to anyone and everyone! As first time home buyers, my husband and I were nervous about starting the home buying process. During our first meeting with Alicia, our minds were quickly put at ease. Alicia made us feel so comfortable and educated about the whole process. She answered all of our questions and uncovered exactly what we were looking for. She found us our beautiful home with everything we wanted. We had a ton of questions along the way and she was always available and so quick to respond. She made us feel like her priority the entire time we worked with her. She kept us in the loop and was very consistent in providing us with information. She is so warm, open, and friendly that you feel at ease with the stress of home buying. She was always honest with us and always had our best interest in mind. During the process, she also had great recommendations for who to use in the Wilsonville area, from inspectors, plumbers, mortgage brokers, to who to ask for at the title company. Everyone she recommended was amazing and it made the experience completely stress free. Alicia is trust worthy, extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and genuine. We are so happy with how helpful she was, and we can not say enough favorable things about her. There is not one thing we would change about the service she provided for us. We would highly recommend her to anyone that is looking to buy or sell a home. We can not thank her enough for making home buying easy, stress free, fun, and so exciting!

My husband and I highly recommend Alicia as your selling or buying agent. Her knowledge and expertise are second to none. More importantly Alicia is kind, honest and a very hard worker. She is truly a class act. Alicia sold our home almost immediately upon listing. No doubt Alicia?s research on comps, listing strategy and her strong relationships in the real-estate community contributed to the quick and smooth sale. Alicia gave us great advice on updating our home without breaking the bank. She has developed relationships with top notch contractors who did wonders for our home at a reasonable cost. Alicia was so helpful when we purchased and built our new home. She has extensive background in new construction and provided us with tips and knowledge including home warranties, inspection, loans and general knowledge on issues that came up during the building process. Alicia is passionate about her job. She will place your best interest above all. She strives to please and takes ownership of her transactions. You will not be disappointed. Less ... More

Professional, Efficient, Effective, Friendly, and Fierce I had a home to sell and a pending out-of-state relocation, and I wanted to get things done in the real estate department. Alicia coached me to get ahead of the market and get my house listed before spring, when the majority of sellers put their homes up for sale. With her guidance, I cleaned things up both inside and outside, and made sure my house was in immaculate condition. Several realtors commented after showing my home that they thought it was professionally staged! Alicia could not have been more wise. My home went from listed to CLOSED SALE in 15 days. We had 2 offers within 24 hours. I kid you not. Underpriced? No way. My house sold for well over the asking price, and brought up the comparables in my neighborhood by over $30 per square foot. We had some challenges in the home inspection, and this is where the friendly and fierce part comes into play. I gave the buyer of my home only 25% of the concession they requested, and this is thanks to Alicia's friendly but firm negotiation skills. You cannot find a realtor more skilled in this department. I'm leaving the state but still have property here. When it's time for me to sell again, I won't even consider another realtor. You shouldn't either. And I'm hard to please. :) Less ... More

Alicia is amazing! As first time home buyers moving to Oregon from out of state, the process of finding and buying a home was surprisingly easy and smooth because she is incredibly knowledgable, kind, diligent, patient and professional. She walked us through every step of the way, was generous with her time and assistance and got us the house we wanted! (What more can you ask for?) She goes above and beyond and makes buying a home pretty darn stress free. To get an even better sense of the kind of realtor Alicia is, here are some key points: * She is so detail-oriented and thoughtful that she made sure to bring a kid-friendly car with snacks for touring us (and our toddler) around. * Since we were buying from out of state, she stood in for us at a variety of meetings (inspectors, sewer scope, etc) and even offered to help set up appliance installations for us. * She kept in touch about every detail of the home buying process, explaining things as we went and preparing us in order to make the whole process as seamless as possible. * She picked up my father-in-law at the airport, drove him around our new neighborhood, showed him our house, then drove him back to the airport! If you're buying or selling a house, call Alicia! You'd be crazy not to. Less ... More

I had originally contacted another agent that got many rave reviews here on Yelp, but she was unable to assist me and referred me to Alicia. My wife and I are first time buyers, there is plenty we do not know, and Alicia had an answer for all of it. Frequently, when face with a decision of this magnitude one is very sensitive to how others, who are more experienced in the given situation, may perceive them, and it is easy to feel like you are being talked down to for asking stupid questions, this is not a problem with Alicia. She was forthright with all of the information requested from her, and gentle in its delivery when that consideration was appropriate. When it came to referrals, she set us up with a great mortgage broker (Cheri Frazell - NW Mortgage), and an extremely thorough home inspector (Wayne @ Red Wall Property Inspector, he is awesome). She responded to every concern we had quickly, and got us an awesome deal on the home we purchased. In fact, the exact home sold for about 12,000 more a couple weeks later right down the street, from the same builder, same floor plan, difference? They didnt have Alicia on their side. From the beginning I truely felt that she was our advocate. We bought the third house we looked at, and we closed on it in 45 days. Not bad for first time buyers with less than stellar credit, with Alicia negotiating a great deal on the home, the lender getting us a great rate on the loan, and Wayne putting his (hard earned) stamp of approval on the house, we were able to get everything done quickly, hell, it was harder buying my last car! Its nice to meet someone who enjoys what they do, buying a home shouldnt be miserable, and you should enjoy the person helping you do it, and we enjoyed having Alicia help us in this huge endevour in our lives. When I sell, I will call her, and when friends buy, I will recommend her. You won't be disappointed, give her a call. Less ... More

Look no further - you have found your realtor!! Alicia Dart is incredible. As first time homebuyers, we were so nervous about the process of buying a home - there seemed to be so many things that could go wrong, and we didn't want to make a mistake. Alicia met up with us for a cup of coffee, listened to our story, answered our long list of questions (Are we really ready? Can we really afford this?) and then took us out on New Year's Day to look at 10 different homes. She steered us well and encouraged us to look at a few places that we were on the fence about ... and good thing, because our dream home ended up being a townhome we weren't all too excited to see based on the listing and photos. Less than six weeks after we started looking, we were closing! Things we love about working with Alicia... * She knows her stuff! She had inside knowledge about all the places we were looking at - neighborhoods, HOAs, etc. She also knows a ton about repairs and remodeling and was able to help us estimate how much work each place would need. * She's tenacious. We completely trusted her negotiating on our behalf. She was professional and savvy and got us a great deal with both price and repairs. The HOA was a real struggle for us throughout the process, but Alicia was persistent and tended to all of the communication with them. * I can't even describe all the things she just took care of for us. Had all those responsibilities (calling the HOA repeatedly, etc.) been put on us, we never would have finished the process. At one point, she was crawling around behind one of our toilets, checking the repair work and helping us figure out if we wanted a re-inspection. Nothing fazed her - she was going to do everything she could to get us what we needed. * She has great connections. We researched on Yelp, Angie's List, etc. for contractors and other providers, but mostly went with Alicia's network. We loved working with the broker she recommended (Cheri Frazell) and the home inspector (Wayne Gardner). When we went to purchase floors, they immediately offered us 30% off because we were Alicia's clients. Also, when we started having contractors come in to bid on work, she would grill them for us, asking questions that we (as first time owners) didn't know to ask. Oh, and when we were having a hard time imagining what a kitchen remodel in our budget would look like, she took us over to her mom's home to show us the work they did there. Above and beyond! * She made everything easy. We signed all our documents electronically. She was always available by text, phone and email - while she has many clients, we always felt like we were her first priority. She told us what to read carefully, where to sign, and what to do during every step of the process. * She's fun and positive! Seriously, home buying is stressful - choose to work with someone you like! All our future home buying/selling will be with Alicia by our side. Less ... More

We bought our home last year with Alicia's help. She is the best! She has a ton of experience and helped us navigate lots of tough decisions. Alicia has such a vast knowledge of the industry and a good relationship with many vendors, so we felt totally confident with her by our side! Alicia is also great at dealing with other realtors and vendors in such a way that she doesn't take any crap from anybody, gets you a good deal, and still puts a smile on everyone's face. It takes a special person to do that! One thing that we really appreciated is that she went over and above to help us with any issues or questions we had long after we had closed on the house. You can tell she's not just in it for a paycheck. She really loves people and loves what she does. If you want to buy or sell a house, I seriously wouldn't use anyone else but her! She is awesome!

Alicia was referred to my wife and I by another realtor. The realtor we had hoped to use was too busy to provide the quality of service that they demanded of themselves. We really appreciated them being up front we us and are forever grateful for them introducing us to Alicia. My wife and I were purchasing a second home that my daughters could live in while finishing school. We all actively participated in the search for a house with Alicia providing incredible expertise and insight. Alicia fully understand what we were looking for, our objectives in purchasing a home, and our price range. II could sit here and write complimentary things about Alicia all day. What really worked for us was: 1. She is incredibly knowledgeable about the area and process 2. She was very responsive 3. She negotiated an fair price for both us and seller 4. She held our hands thru a less than desirableness loan process. She did not pick the lender we did. We would have better off leaving it up to her Most importantly--she is an absolutely delightful person to work with. My family and I think the world of her and could not imagine using another realtor for our next transaction. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home. At the end of the day we ended up with the house we wanted for the price we were willing to pay.

When we were ready to buy a house we started looking on our own, but it was very burdensome. Once we realized this and on very short notice, we contacted Alicia Dart to help us get in to see a house - she facilitated the viewing within an hour.

Her approach was incredibly organized, efficient and, well, effective. Alicia was not out to get a house sold to us, but to help us find a home. Once we found our home, Alicia expedited the negotiation to make sure we could buy the home, including all the back and forth dealing with even the smallest issues and concerns.
