Alexis Halmy is the best real estate agent we have ever worked with. She has helped us sell several homes and her professionalism and knowledge is top notch.

Alexis is not only an exceptional agent but someone who truly makes you feel like she is invested in your future. It is always a pleasure to recommend Alexis.

Very thorough, knowledgeable, and engaged

Alexis is very thorough, knowledgeable, engaged, and has the greatest interests in her clients. She went the distance to make sure that we had an advantage over other bidders such as writing a letter to the sellers, stating our love for the property, something we wouldn't have done on our own. She kept us on track with the documents and signing. We truly appreciate her professionalism.

Extremely professional, knowledgable, and perceptive

Alexis Halmy has been our real estate agent in the purchase of three homes in the Portland/NW Oregon area over the last eight years. She is extremely professional, knowledgeable, and perceptive as an agent for her clients. She has extensive and very useful contacts with other professionals, including inspection services during the purchase process. It has always been a pleasure working with her and she has my highest recommendation

Always available with a smile on her face!

Alexis was great! We recommend her to everyone who want a smooth and effortless transaction. She helped us with the purchase of our first house and we had no issue. Very professional, flexible, knowledgeable, always available and always with a smile on her face! She also is well connected and she can give you tips or suggestions for really anything you might need or want around the house and the neighbor.

A Consummate Professional

Alexis is the consummate professional - she is knowledgeable, strategic (in the best of ways), proactive, responsive and always keeps her clients' best interest in mind. I know it is easy to say that someone "goes above and beyond," yet with Alexis, it is genuine and meaning the FULL distance required to get something done and done with excellence. This includes everything involved - knowing the market, pricing and marketing, negotiating, working with other realtors/lenders/professionals involved in the transactions, having great resources to refer to for everything related to selling, purchasing and moving. I could go on and on, but there is also some value in being succinct. Just know I would be happy to refer Alexis at any time or talk with anyone exploring or considering a realtor. She is a gem and absolutely perfect for the field she has chosen.

Sold our condo in less than a week!

Alexis sold our condo in less than a week and found us a great buyer. We were always kept in the loop and Alexis was very quick to respond to any questions or issues that came up. After the sale of the condo, my husband and I were on the search for a new home and Alexis was patient and understanding of our ever changing needs/wants. As first time "home" buyers, we were stressed about everything that could possibly go wrong and she talked us through whatever questions we had. She had great negotiation skills and we were able to put an offer in and get the house of our dreams! Great experience and would recommend to our friends for sure!

Just what a first-home buyer needed

The service we received was attentive, personal, and patient. Just what a first-time home buyer needed.

Alexis went way above and beyond!

Alexis went way above and beyond expectations and facilitated a transaction that would likely have been clumsy or incomplete without her extra efforts. We had previously arranged to leave the country for two weeks just as our offer was accepted. Our inspection period ended the day after our return. Alexis organized the inspection, procured multiple bids on several problem mitigation issues, and organized the issues and bids on a spreadsheet which she presented to us upon our return. The spreadsheet was invaluable in our decision-making as the inspection period came to an end. I highly recommend her services to buyers and sellers.

It felt like she moved mountains for me!

Alexis is profoundly skilled and knowledgeable when it comes to real estate. She guided me through every step of the immense process and made things very clear as we went along. When we found the home that I eventually purchased, Alexis acted fast and put our offer instantly. It really felt like she moved mountains to make sure that I had the absolute best chance of closing on my dream house. She confidently made sure that every single detail of the home-buying process was covered and she knew exactly how to interact with the seller to make our offer especially desirable. I am completely sure that I would not have been able to find a home without Alexis' help. The market is crazy right now, and sellers have a huge advantage. I could not have had an easier time with any detail of this whole process and it's all because of Alexis. I cannot recommend her enough.

A smooth, stress-free and fun experience!

Alexis is awesome. She went above and beyond and made the whole experience smooth, stress-free and fun.

Extremely helpful

We have purchased homes in the LA area where we worked, the Central coast of California where we retired, and now a townhome in Lake Oswego (close to our grandchildren) where Alexis Halmy was extremely helpful. I don't think we would have been able to buy our townhome in Lake Oswego without Alexis' knowledge of pricing and value of the housing market. She made that extra effort to make our home purchase easy by taking care of all the details and complexities necessary in buying a home.

Wonderful and Insightful

Alexis was wonderful, and insightful. As out of town buyers Alexis was a pleasure to work with and very accommodating of our limited time frame. She insisted we get a radon inspection and that was a big help. Something that we would have overlooked and as it turned out a significant problem. Thank you Alexis!

Detail-oriented, Organized, & Professional

Hi Alexis,
I wanted to send you a quick note with my strong recommendation for you to share with potential clients:
My husband Zach and I just closed on our first house last week and we are just so excited to be homeowners! Alexis was the perfect realtor for us every step of the way. From the beginning, we could tell that she is very detail-oriented, organized, and professional. We were hoping to find someone of this caliber, and we instantly knew we were in good hands. What we didn't expect was how she went above and beyond her expected roles and responsibilities and treated us as friends and partners in the home buying process. She was very personable, friendly, and open with us through it all. She not only handled every step of the process like a pro, she made it fun!
We were honest with her about what we wanted in a home and she locked into that very easily. She even picked up on things we hadn't even really discussed because she was so in tune with us, our hobbies, our jobs, our dreams, etc. She saved us a lot of time by narrowing down the market, but she was always open to show us anything we asked to see. She did her research and she listened closely to our input, and as a result, we found our perfect home very quickly.

As first time home buyers, we had no idea what we were in for. As the deal progressed, the negotiations grew more complicated, and the paperwork just kept coming, Alexis was cool, calm, and very reassuring. She worked constantly to keep the deal moving, solve problems that came up, and keep us informed every step of the way. We called and emailed her with questions and concerns several times a week and she always got right back to us with an explanation or a solution. She not only handled every detail like a pro, she held our hand through the process and kept us optimistic and excited.
We got the keys a few days ago and can't wait to start painting and moving and living in our dream home. Alexis provided us with several referrals for contractors and I know I can always give her a call if I have any questions or need help with anything. We were in good hands the whole time and we know we will keep in touch with her even though the papers are all signed. I highly recommend choosing Alexis as your realtor- she will help make this home buying process everything it should be!
Sincerely,
Jen Barnes

A++++ Customer Service!

I am a recent client. Alexis Halmy goes BEYOND anything I have ever seen in my 33 years buying and selling property personally and professionally when I was a realtor. Her customer service is A++++. If you live in Portland and want a realtor who will help you find a home that is the best fit for you, be prepared to be blown away by not only having your needs met but exceeded!
- Sherold Barr

Highly Recommend Alexis on Either End of a Deal


Alexis recently sold my home and helped me buy a home. The timing was tricky and the market was tough for selling in my price range and subsequently buying in a lower price range. Alexis really shined during all the behind the scenes negotiating and endless paperwork. It had been a while since I had completed a transaction and I had no idea how much work goes into the process after the offers were made. She truly knows her business and kept me well-informed during all the negotiating with a calm and encouraging demeanor. I would highly recommend Alexis on either end of a deal. (September 2, 2015)
- Christel Turkiewicz

Alexis went above and beyond

We felt that Alexis, in what was a very difficult transaction, went above and beyond in her efforts to get our deal done.

The Sale of Our House Was A Miracle!

Alexis,
A huge thank you for all your efforts to get us out of Foxwood!
It was a heroic effort for all of us and we appreciate everything.
Your gift of cleaning the house was frosting on the cake, but so much more deserves to be appreciated. Your beautiful online and printed materials, your dogged determination to help us set the right price, your moral support, your gathering all the information from Autumn Hill HOA, your encouragement and never give up attitude, the many supportive coffee conferences, and the endless paperwork. All deserve praise and gratitude.
Mostly for sticking with us when the going got sticky - we feel the sale of our house was a miracle and you were an angel in the process. I hope all your other properties turned out as well.
We have made it to Mexico through a marathon of moving, but we are here and warm and done with moving for a very long time.
If you ever need a reference, I will sing your praises.

With appreciation and hugs,
Jesse

Tricky Transaction

Alexis was instrumental in helping me find the perfect house for my needs. She knows the Portland market very well, and her real estate expertise made a tricky transaction go very smoothly. She kept me well informed as we went through the process, and helped me understand the implications of all the various decisions that were made.
I highly recommend her as an experienced real estate broker and will utilize her expertise the next time I buy or sell a home. And we had fun too!
- Lucinda Rockwell

Took personal interest in my experience

Alexis was very diligent in helping me find a home and purchasing it. I felt she took a personal interest in my home buying experience. I am new to the real estate experience and she gave me great guidance and confidence in my decisions.

FANTASTIC!

Alexis is FANTASTIC!!! Her approach and expertise in helping me sell my home in 2008 was outstanding. I would recommend her to anyone I knew that needed assistance with buying or selling a home. She is awesome!
- Mike Mitchell

Above and Beyond

Alexis is an absolute professional. She is a go-getter, always has our best interest in mind and over the years she has become a very dear friend, in addition to our Realtor. While working with Alexis on the sale and purchase of our homes, she has been diligent in uncovering the best investment for our dollar. She worked tirelessly on putting together our offer and negotiated the best scenario for us as a family. She goes above and beyond what most Realtor's do and gives extra care and attention to her clients. You can tell that Alexis loves what she does and has passion in helping bring families dreams to realization. I would highly recommend her as a Realtor and am proud to call her a friend.

Extraordinary Real Estate Agent

Alexis Halmy is an extraordinary real estate agent. Her marketing efforts led to a sale of my home in 65 days in the middle of a recession, capturing the best features of the house with beautiful photography and printed material and holding well-timed open houses. Alexis was an excellent liaison in all aspects of the sale; and I appreciated her direct and honest feedback when I needed help during the process.
- Nancy Bates

Incredibly Hard Working!

Alexis is an incredibly hard working real estate agent. She goes above and beyond to solve challenging deals while keeping her clients well informed. We will definitely work with her again.
- Christy Stanley

From Listing to Closing in 4 Months!

It was a pleasure to work with Alexis and have her by our sides throughout the entire process, from listing to closing - all in a matter of less than four months - fantastic in this current market! And it all went without a hitch, thanks to the many professional connections Alexis has made (including a handyman to replace our smoke detectors). Thank you, Alexis.
- Toni and Ralph Morgan

Saved Us Thousands in Repairs!

Last year, we had the pleasure of working with Alexis Halmy to purchase our first home in Portland. We were moving from out of state, with limited time to visit Portland. Alexis was accommodating, communicative, and available whenever we needed her, readily working with us to seek answers and solve problems.

Her advice in selecting inspectors and additional optional inspections meant that we went into the deal thoroughly understanding the condition of the property. As a result, we have had no surprises, despite having bought a 100-year old house that had been neglected, abused, and abandoned. She has also gone beyond her duty in purchasing us a home warranty package that has (so far) saved us thousands of dollars in repairs.

Our home purchase was a real estate transaction where the headaches didn't stop until months after closing. Alexis had to deal with truly unprofessional, irresponsible, and irrational behavior on the part of the listing agent, her assistant, and the asset manager of the bank that owned the property. We had delays of several months in closing. Throughout the ordeal, she showed patience and tenacity, and she kept us appropriately updated via phone and email even through her vacation. We would highly recommend her to friends and family, and indeed we have already.

Sincerely,

Dan Carlson & Teng Ji

Your Best Interest at Heart

Alexis Halmy is one of the best realtors around! I had used 3 realtors prior to Alexis and she beat them all. Hands Down! Alexis always has the clients best interest at heart and looks out for what she feels is best for you. Her outgoing personality and knowledge of the real estate make the buying experience VERY easy and stress free. I recommend Alexis Halmy for any real estate needs!
- Tom Murphy

Outstanding to Work With!

Alexis was outstanding to work with throughout the entire transaction. Very professional and yet warm and considerate. She did a fantastic job of active listing and helped us to understand what we were looking for and then found it. Project managed the offer through close and facilitated things wonderfully.

Fantastic to Work With!

Alexis was fantastic to work with. We were first time home buyers at the same time we became first-time parents (two twins), and we were moving from Seattle to Portland. Needless to say, it was a stressful time. Alexis was friendly, knowledgeable, and always available, and we knew she had our best interest in mind. Due to the babies, we looked houses earlier than we were ready to buy. We found our dream home quickly, and she was able to help us rent it until we were ready to close. It all worked out perfectly and we know we have Alexis to thank for that. She was also great with the babies and kept them happy while we signed the closing documents! She was highly recommended to us by friends, and we second that!
Sincerely,
Alana Golden

Trustworthy and Wonderful!

There is nothing Alexis could have done better! She is very trustworthy and wonderful!! I would use her services in the future and would refer her to my family and friends. Alexis was always working hard following up on everything. I felt very confident and was in very good hands.
- Sharon Buckley

Very Helpful!

Alexis was very helpful, if she didn't know the answer she found someone who did! Her knowledge, integrity, enthusiasm, listening skills, communication, problem solving, and availability were excellent! Alexis is great, very friendly and helpful. She has been helping us to find the perfect house and she DID! We would highly recommend her as an agent and would use her services in the future.
- Lindsey and Ben Eick

Excellent Communication!

Excellent communication, responded so well to all our questions. Alexis is savvy and completely straightforward and enthusiastic. We love our new home! Everything was TOP NOTCH!
- Laurie & Alan Lee

Alexis Is The Heroine In Our Story!

We close on November 24th. Our thanks go to our broker and dear friend Alexis Halmy. Selling a house is no easy feat these days. Alexis is the heroine in our story. We love you doll!
- Goldie Rubin

Great Realtor!

Alexis Halmy is my idea of a great Realtor. She helped my husband and I through the difficult path of purchasing a short sale home. Throughout the process she was on top of everything, including bringing me chicken soup when I was ill! Alexis is smart, friendly, prompt, dedicated and goes far beyond the call of duty to meet her client's goals.

Pleasure to Work With!

Last year, we had the pleasure of working with Alexis Halmy to purchase our first home in Portland. We were moving from out of state, with limited time to visit Portland. Alexis was accommodating, communicative, and available whenever we needed her, readily working with us to seek answers and solve problems.

Creative and Resourceful Salesperson!

Between September 2010 and July 2011, my house (3435 N.W. Luray Terrace, Portland OR 97210) was on the market. The market was distressingly, frustratingly slow. It was not a good time to sell, but for personal reasons I considered it necessary to go ahead anyway. After a careful search, I selected Alexis to be my realtor. It was the right decision. She proved to be a creative, resourceful salesperson, and refused to let the bad market get her – or me – down. A variety of sales strategies were tried. In the end, we made a sale. In my opinion, we did about as well as we could have give the slow market. I found Alexis to be ethical in every respect, attentive to my suggestions, and skillful in developing the marketing strategy that we agreed upon, and in executing the specific tactics that led to success. I feel completely comfortable and confident in recommending Alexis to future home sellers. If anyone who is considering engaging her services wishes to discuss her qualifications further, they need only pick up the phone and I will be glad to talk with them. I wish Alexis every continued success in her very successful real estate career.
Sincerely, s/ Robert B. Textor

No One Else Came Close!

We have moved 8 times in 10 years. Although some sales were FSBOs, in the sales where we used a realtor, none came close to providing the personalized service that Alexis did!
- John Kalb

The Top of Her To-Do List

Alexis was completely caring about the ups and downs of the process and my moods as we moved through the process. I felt she put me and the sale of my home at the top of her to-do list!
- Bonnie Franks

She Wanted Us To Be Happy

Alexis was awesome! She made it clear that she wanted us to be happy in the home we ended up with and wouldn't pressure or rush us in any way and she didn't. She took us to see as many homes as we desired and gave us her honest input on each home. Once we found our home she was with us each step of the way, from inspection, to appraisal, and closing. She fought for us to make sure we got the most bang for our buck in terms of repairs. She was available to us by phone whenever we needed her. She put a lot into getting this home for us and I feel we may not have gotten it without her. We are so grateful to her!
- Rhianna Delaney

Alexis Went To Bat For Us In Every Way

Alexis took a personal interest in our happiness and state of mind. She was supportive and thorough throughout the process. She really went to bat for us in every way. We enjoyed working with Alexis so much that it almost makes us want to do it again - almost! We love our house and getting us here was in large part a result of Alexis' hard work - Thanks so much!
- Jean Heindel

Excellent Communication and Service

Excellent service. Alexis arranged and coordinated home repairs that she and I agreed needed to be made. She stayed in excellent communication with me throughout the process. Alexis Halmy was a joy to work with! As an out of state property owner selling my former residence, I was anxious to list my property without being there to oversee the details. Alexis quickly put my anxiety to rest. She managed the listing efficiently and quickly had the property ready to show. This included coordinating repairs that we both agreed needed to be made. After obtaining multiple offers for me, she helped to identify the best deal and terms. Throughout the process Alexis was professional and enjoyable to work with. She stayed in regular contact and kept me completely informed as things progressed. I would use Alexis again without hesitation and can fully recommend her excellent service.

I’m always happy to be a personal reference if you have a potential client that wants to chat.
- James Hansen

Hard Working Professional

Ms. Halmy not only did her bit thoroughly, but I believe she went beyond what most Realtors are now apt to do (at least in my prior and vast experience in buying and selling my homes during the past 40 years). She actually assisted me in completing various projects that needed doing in order to sell my house something I had never experienced. In the past I was essentially on my own and while I have had some direction, Ms. Halmy was sure to see to it that I not only had direction, she saw to it that either she or myself got done what needed to be done. I might forget something, but she was always there to remind me. At times I might become frustrated or anxious with a particular situation and she was there to steer me through it. In short she was always hands on and available even late at night.

Even two weeks after both houses were finished, I still feel as though she is working for me. After the sale of my former house and purchase of my new home, she worked through a few what were some rather aggravating issues (no fault of hers) and to this day has continued to remind me of what I may have neglected to complete, things that were to my benefit, but forgotten by myself during the stress of the move and unpacking.

Your agency is fortunate to have such a hard working professional that has her clients needs in mind and appeared to always have her bases covered. I would and will recommend her to anyone I come to know that is in the need of a realtor.

Sincerely,
Eric Rosentreter

Generous With Her Time

Alexis was a pleasure to deal with. Always easy to deal with, very flexible, understanding, and generous with her time.
Thank you Alexis!
- Alyson Breathed

It Has Been a Pleasure!

Thank you very much for the very professional way you handled this sale. You
really did an excellent job for us, and we appreciate it very much. It has been
a pleasure dealing with you!
- Marty and Akiko Nevitt

Worldwide Service!

Alexis' service was excellent, especially considering that the whole transaction transpired with Alexis in Lake Oswego and me in Tokyo. She did a wonderful job. I couldn't have asked for better handling of this sale and can without reservation recommend Windermere to other potential clients. Windermere handled both the initial sale of this property to me and the subsequent sale to the buyer, and handled both with efficiency and a high level of professionalism.
- Martin Nevitt

We Just Wanted to Thank You!

Alexis,
We just wanted to thank you for everything you have done for us. You are amazing! I can not thank you enough for all of the effort and time you have given us. I thank you for covering all bases to make sure there were no loose ends. You are awesome and we are so fortunate to have you as our guide.
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!
- Marti Welch and Chuck Head

Many Thanks!

Alexis provided thorough, caring, highly experienced service. She went way beyond my expectations in taking care of inspections and negotiations while I was away, and she offered tremendous help and advice. Alexis was also responsive to my calls at all hours. I couldn't be more impressed and satisfied.
- Julie Gudmestad

Above and Beyond Expectations

Alexis went way above and beyond expectations, and facilitated a transaction that would likely have been clumsy or incomplete without her extra efforts. We had previously arranged to leave the country for two weeks just as our offer was accepted. Our inspection period ended the day after our return. Alexis organized the inspection, procured multiple bids on several problem mitigation issues, and organized the issues and bids on a spreadsheet, which she presented to us upon our return! The spreadsheet was invaluable in our decision-making as the inspection period came to an end. I highly recommend her services to buyers and sellers.

Highly Recommended!

Alexis did a fantastic job of selling my dad's condo. Working with her was a delight, and she got the job done very effectively even when some unexpected road blocks came up. Her experience, communication skills and energy are very impressive. She is highly recommended!
- Alan Berger

A Tough House To Sell

She was great with a tough house to sell. Alexis tried new ways to approach the market. Was always responsive and kept us informed on what people were saying.

Invaluable!

We decided to explore a move to Portland in early January. With a few good questions, Alexis honed in on the neighborhood and type of house we wanted, and we were in her car a few days later looking at the offerings. One new, empty, but not for sale house we drove by intrigued us. Alexis tracked down the developer and got us a tour. We loved it, but as we were in another state, with a home not readied for its own sale yet, buying this house would be complicated.

Alexis negotiated a contingency sale and kept us in the loop through the whole process. She was invaluable during the inspection, and her advice was excellent. Thanks to Alexis' diligence, we were in our new house by mid-March, less than three months after our vague decision to relocate -- less time than it has taken us to unpack our boxes.
- Debi Golden

Alexis was Instrumental

Jim and I have been a great team throughout the challenges of selling and buying. Red wine, humor and chats to the angels helped us (me)... and of course, Alexis was instrumental in those moments I thought I might tip over. In what was a very difficult transaction, she went above and beyond in her efforts to get our deal done. Big hugs and thanks to Alexis.
- Francine & Jim Read

We are Happy to be Homeowners!

Alexis was AWESOME! She went above and beyond for us. Ours was not simple and she was there for us every step of the way. We are VERY thankful.
- Marti Welch and Chuck Head

There for Me for Almost a Year

Alexis went beyond the call and helped me pick my flooring and countertop, and went to my house to supervise cleaning, moving left over furniture and monitoring a window repair after I'd moved out of state. She was there for me for almost a year during the stressful time I was downsizing.
- Merle Alexander

We Were in Great Hands...

Alexis was amazing to work with and we felt we were in great hands from the get go. Strategic, smart, energetic, a good listener and an excellent communicator. I can't think of a thing she could have done better! (August 12, 2015)
- Andrew and Maura McIvor

She Was Looking Out for Us

Alexis is pleasant, professional, patient and flexible. We couldn't have asked for a better Realtor. Her market analysis was especially helpful in making our big decision. We really appreciate her prompt and forthright answers to our queries related to listings, neighborhoods and the process of home buying in general. Most importantly, we did not feel pressured and felt that she was looking out for us.
- Sushma and Prakash Ambady

A Rock Star!

Alexis is a Rock Star! Not only did she seal the deal on my very first house, but she was more than patient in helping a first time shopper, such as myself to better understand the general process, the market, and all the closing details. Her expertise and professionalism were extremely impressive and I wouldn't skip a beat recommending her to any friend, family member or stranger. She even had pizza and beverages waiting for us when we finally moved in! If you're shopping for a Realtor, look no further, call her now.
