I’m so pleased to announce that the Portland Business Journal has awarded Change Realty the title of One of the Fastest Growing Companies in Oregon for the THIRD year in a row. There are so many people that deserve thanking, but I would like to extend a formal thank you to everyone at Change Realty, to the Portland Business Journal, and to our¬†hundreds of clients.

Change Realty Portland Business Journal Awards

Three years of above-and-beyond client service.

While I’m so grateful to have received this honor, I can’t help but look at it as inevitable. After all, at the heart of Change Realty is a great team and a great mission that just works.

Every step of our process is designed to give the homeowner the most professional and seamless experience possible.

When I founded Change Realty in 2009, I set out to create a residential brokerage firm unlike any other. Above all, I wanted to put the homeowner, whether buying or selling, first. I noticed that other brokerage firms charged an arm and a leg to list homes. This struck me as completely backward. Listing a home shouldn’t cost a homeowner a 6% or even a 5% real estate commission. It’s the simplest part of the process!

Change Realty’s amazing success has a very simple mission at its center.

No. It’s the job of a brokerage firm to make it easy as possible to list a home. Once a home is sold, then more business can enter the picture. Until then, it’s a matter of helping homeowners get their properties out there and under the care of a reputable real estate firm.

One of the most important parts of any listing are photos. Having the right photos of a given property are key to giving potential buyers a literal snapshot of the property of their dreams. That’s why Change Realty sends out a professional photographer to every home that lists with us to get the best quality photos possible.

Once a home is listed (with gorgeous photos) we promise to serve a homeowner to the best of our ability. Given that our agents all of thorough area of the Portland-Vancouver Metro Area, we can even you find your next property–be it a residence¬†or an investment.

So you see, every step of Change Realty’s process is designed to place the homeowner–whether buying or selling–first. It’s this commonsense approach to which we can attribute Change Realty’s rapid growth as a company, for the third year in a row.

But don’t take my word for it. Here’s what some of our clients have to say:


The experience I had with Change Realty was wonderful. Bill was easy to work with and was always available when I needed him. He went above and beyond the call of duty! Highly recommend.

– Gail G.

We were hesitant to use Change Reality after reading the reviews on the internet. We aired our concerns with Kelly and he agreed to only list for 30 day and if we were dissatisfied we could end the contract. We could not have found a more professional realtor. He navigated 3 offers on the property and we accepted the offer $20,000 over the asking price. Ridgeway Road, Lake Oswego, Or.

You saved us an unreal amount of money when compared to other agents. Thank you.
