Robert Chown is a proud fifth-generation Portland native who is well-versed in all aspects of real estate, in particular, the real estate market in Portland, Oregon.

Robert’s collegiate real estate education is beyond the agent level required by state law and his relevant life experience is beyond his years.

“After moving cross-country to Portland (having visited only once before) – and arriving in the middle of a pandemic – Robert was truly a godsend as our agent! I can’t imagine getting through the house-buying process with anyone else – and being so happy with the results! He is an obvious historian of the city, which to us was as priceless as his keen knowledge of building structure, architecture, and the Portland real estate market. And his dedication to finding the perfect home to suit our every need was just amazing!” – Bob
“If you are looking for a genuine person to help you learn as much as you want about houses, look no further. Robert’s the complete package and then more. He’s confident and knows the market. He will work incredibly hard to close the deal and get you your house in this fast and competitive market. He knows the neighborhood, he definitely knows houses and will keep your best interest in mind. He’s personable, fun, and reassuring even when we started to doubt we would find the perfect house…If you want to find your home, look for Robert, trust his judgment, trust his insight, follow his lead, and you will find your home!!!!” – Suzanne

As first time home buyers, the vetting and transactional process can seem pretty overwhelming, but Robert took us through every step with full confidence and guidance… His knowledge about Portland (and I mean every single pocket of Portland) was unlike any other experience we had found… He makes miracles happen. Robert made the buying process as smooth (and fun) as possible. He’s the best realtor you’ll find in Portland, hands down.” – Hannah
“Robert is the man for the job when it comes to selling your home. He knows his stuff so you will feel confident that you are in good hands. There was one hiccup that happened on closing. Fortunately, when Robert approached us with the issue, he also had a plan that was in motion to make things right. He really came through for us when we needed him the most.” – Lori
