Drew Coleman's Reviews & Ratings

Tell us about your experience with
Drew Coleman

  • Drew helped me buy a home

      Had a great experience. Robin was a great match for us. Thanks again and thanks for the gift!

    • Drew helped me buy a home

        The team at Drew Coleman was the perfect choice to lead us through the process of buying our first home. We so appreciated their knowledge of the market, timely responses, and expertise in crafting a competitive offer. Our agent, Aaron Pontius, helped us navigate all the ups and downs from search to closing. We would absolutely work with him again.

      • Jacob was fantastic. Extremely knowledgeable about the local market. He was communicative and available whenever needed. Jacob was never pushy but certainly help us see what was most important to us through the process. I would highly recommend using Jacob to help walk you through a buy of a home or the sale of your home!

        - Dylan Jessen
      • Megan went above and beyond in helping me find and purchase a condo. Even during a difficult, changing market, combined with my specific requirements, she was able to find good possibilities and ultimately recommended the one I went with. She was patient and kept trying even when I had given up the search for a while. She was responsive and efficient, answering questions to the best of her ability, and walked me through every step with kindness. I was particularly impressed with her flexible schedule, able to respond (and show up!) even outside of business hours. She persevered and got me answers, and her recommendations and advice paid off. I would definitely work with her again (though I probably won't need to any time soon!), and will recommend her to any friend looking to buy.

        - Caleb Jackson
      • I was able to reach out to my realtor, Leslie Keller any time of the day and was able to put in an offer right away before other offers were received. This promptness made the difference and my offer was accepted and she was by my side easing my fears every step of the way.

        - Lisa Anderson
      • Opt was phenomenal in supporting me from the initial looking at listings all the way through moving in. Buying a home is hard and stressful, but working with opt made it feel much more doable.

        - Aj Krebs
      • I was a first time home buyer and as you could guess, had no idea what I was doing. Garret came referred to me by a friend, and saying he is incredible at his job is an understatement! First meeting, you could tell he was passionate about realty and genuinely cared about what homes you searched for. He paid attention to details about me and made sure that all of my wants and needs for my first home were met. Garret confidently explained the process to me (which I needed very much) and helped me look out for things in the home buying process that I may not have noticed on my own. He took such amazing care of me and made me feel way more confident than I did in the beginning of the buying process. Closing was a breeze and the communication he kept with me, still to this day, impresses me immensely. You will be so well taken care of if you get the chance to work with Garret and he will ensure that you find exactly what you are looking for! Could not recommend him more and so appreciate of his hard work and dedication to finding me my dream first home!

        - Samantha Brady
      • Alexa helped us purchase our first home, and out of state too! She was very thorough in answering all our questions and walking us through the whole process, being so new to it. She had great connections that also helped with things around the house and during the buying process. We are still asking her questions to this day and she is still so helpful. We closed early and were surprised how limited the stress was in the process!

        - Sarah and Jeffrey Brooks
      • Tony is an excellent realtor. He is knowledgeable and patient, and guided me through each step of fixing up, listing, and selling my house. He responded to each question I had promptly and professionally, offering advice that ultimately led to my house selling for a good price in a difficult market. I couldn't have done it without him, and will hire him again for my next real estate transaction.

        - Michael Bono
      • I had an absolute amazing buying and selling experience using Opt! The selling process with Michael Kessinger was planned well, easy, with lots of clear concise communication. And the buying process with Garret Eastman-King was unbelievable, Garret went above and beyond for us with zoom walkthroughs, clear explanations and dealing with difficult sellers. I will absolutely be using Opt again and highly recommend them to everyone I know.

        - Zach and Kayla Landry
      • Drew Casebeer made my first time home purchase great! Thank you to him and the Opt Team for all of your support.

        - Ashlee Casebeer
      • They helped us buy our dream home - on a tight timeline. They were wonderful to work with - a great team to have help with something as important as buying a home!

        - Karen Russell
      • Jess is exceptional. Showings were timely and well organized. The Opt team had my documents well managed and could explained them to me concisely. Jess treated my family and I well, like family. Thank you!

        - Coleman Cookston
      • Robin at Opt was amazing! We knew from the first moment we met her that we were in good hands. She was very accommodating - any time we found a home we wanted to see, she made herself available (even before we were ready to buy). She gave great, honest advice. We used Robin to both sell our old home and buy our new home. She knew what she was doing! She priced our old home and marketed it PERFECTLY - it sold pretty quickly in the midst of a declining market. Robin and the whole team at Opt are great. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

        - Ryan Northam
      • Garret is worth his weight in gold! Garret did an outstanding job assisting me with finding my forever home! Hes knowledgeable of the area and saved me from making a terrible decision with a bad broker. Garret really is wonderfully trustworthy professional. He guided me perfectly through the home buying process. I cant recommend him highly enough!

        - Rebecca Betz
      • Adam was exactly the right person we needed to help us navigate the home buying process. What I most appreciated about Adam was his responsiveness to our personal needs. From the very beginning to the very final signature, Adam was always available. This means so much now a days. It felt like Adam was a family who had our best interest at heart and he respected our quirky ways of reasoning, all the while offering his very professional and knowledgeable expertise. Over and over again we were grateful to have Adam on our side and we would be happy to personally recommend his service to anyone looking to buy a house.

        - Steve and Monica Keymolen
      • Alexa was great to work with! She kept us informed and was super organized making the entire process worry free. She was always always engaged, energetic and understood all facets of the home-buying process. We will definitely use her again next time!

        - Brannon and Megan Yeldell
      • Alexa treated me like I was her only client. She patiently explained what I didn't understand, answered questions so kindly. I knew she was on my side, took time to learn both what I was looking for as well as what it would take to sell my house.

        - Sandra Jeanne Harris
      • Alexa is a joy to work with. We were looking for a home to purchase during an extremely hot market. After listening to our requirements, Alexa found us multiple listings in the westside area, set up tours and us helped work through details such as HOA regulations, working the offers, setting up inspections and finding free estimates to correct their findings. She kept in constant touch with us through texts and emails every step of the way. With her assistance we were able to find the perfect place at the right price. My husband and I recommend her highly!

        - Cheryl and Stuart Billette
      • What a great experience with the Opt Team and especially Julie Tucker who worked closely with my family and I. Julie took the time to make sure she had our needs met and she had an great support team which showed us what a great real estate agent and group should do when helping you with the sale of your home.

        - Eric Dominguez
      • Jess and the Opt team were all wonderful! They made our first time purchasing a home as stress free as possible. My husband and I always felt in the loop and their team was always available if we had questions. We definitely recommend their team for your future home buying needs!

        - An and Jarod Weidner
      • Victoria is excellent at representing her buyers needs first and foremost. She listens well, has answers to many questions about real estate but tells you and researches the information if she doesnt immediately have it. She is loyal and works hard to make sure the persons she is representing really do get the assistance they need without the pressure to buy just any old property. Victoria was patient when we searched and honest when I was unsure about my first near purchase, and supported my needs when I backed out of my first offer on a home. I would recommend her over some realtors Ive worked with who were either too busy to be bothered with me to respond quickly or too focused on making big commissions to take my time seriously like Victoria did. She truly is a good agent for whoever she is representing, a buyer or a seller, and making sure your needs are met quickly is important to her. It was easy to tell that she really did want buyers to find the property as their home, in my case. Im certain any sellers will be well represented by Victoria as well. Shes positive, helpful, responsive, professional and focused on her clients needs over superficial things, Im not sure how else I would have found a good property with Victoria and her team! Im glad I found her!

        - Julie Stowitschek
      • Robin Nicholas was our buyer agent and theres nothing she wouldnt do to help us work through the transaction. She held our hands and met us multiple times at the property. We got through it in record time- once we modernized our e-transaction skills! Thanks Robin!

        - Corky Miller
      • Sean and Alisha was a pleasure to work with. They made the process as painless as possible. They had the expertise and responsiveness we needed as well as a high level of professionalism.

        - Sung Lee
      • Sean Mele and Alisha Epling did an amazing job selling our home this past spring. They made things simple, easy and still put us in control over the decisions. They are responsive, professional and knowledgeable and made our family feel comfortable every step of the way! Highly recommend these super cool people!

        - Darren Trtek
      • We moved to Portland from Southern California not knowing the area well. Jillian, our agent, was patient, punctual, and smart as she worked with us to look at countless homes in over a dozen neighborhoods over a 6 month period of time. She was great with our two year old who accompanied every visit and in the end she helped us negotiate the purchase of a wonderful new home for our little family.

        - Tara Centybear
      • Jillian, Drew and the whole Coleman team were fantastic to work with. Countless times Jillian sacrificed her Friday nights to take me to see homes. As a fearful first time buyer I truly felt like I was in good hands!

        - Shelby Sharron
      • I am truly grateful in our opportunity to have The Drew Coleman team handle both sides of our home sale & purchasing process. Their professionalism throughout the entire journey was very much appreciated. There was never a moment when they became worried or panicked. In fact they reflected the opposite; they instilled calm every step of the way. Their collective team increase our velocity for sale "THREE WEEKS" including the holidays!!! It was truly amazing. I wish I could give them the a millions STARS!!!!

        - Brad Horner
      • I am very satisfied with my experience with this real estate company. I was able to view a house with less than 24 hours notice, and my agent Jillian was always on time when we met. My transaction closed on time with zero problems.

        - Allison Alti
      • What a fantastic group of people! This was our first time buying a house and everyone we came into contact with was friendly, knowledgeable, fast and efficient. They replied immediately to every email and phone call. Jillian was a pleasure to work with. We would without a doubt recommend The Drew Coleman Team to anyone buying or selling a house. Thank you so much!

        - Debbie Miller
      • We just closed on a house that the Drew Coleman Team helped us purchase. There were a few tricky details we had to overcome with this transaction and Drew and his awesome team worked swiftly and strategically on our behalf. Not only did they work hard for us and were successful at every turn, they are wonderful to work with! Thanks Drew and company!

        - Kami Gray
      • We found The Drew Coleman Team through Dave Ramsey's ELP site and we are so grateful we did. Our realtor was Aaron Pontius. Aaron was hard working, trustworthy and went above and beyond for us. We were purchasing a house from out of state. Aaron made time for us last minute for showings and even toured our home for us on FaceTime when we were hours away. Aaron was quick to respond and helped us navigate a very hot market. The entire team communicated well and made buying a home incredibly easy.

        - Kimberly Lemen
      • I recently purchased a home and my realtor, Aaron Pontius, from the Drew Coleman Team, could not have been more helpful. I was so appreciative of the attention to detail that he gave me. He worked hard to find homes to view that met my criteria and paid attention to my comments as we viewed the first homes, tailoring future viewings to my tastes. Once I found the home I wanted, he carefully walked me through all legal processes, making sure that I understood everything. He was always available for contact and answered numerous questions, quickly and efficiently. If he didnt have an answer, he made sure to research and find out for me the information I requested. I appreciated that he found me an inspector who was especially thorough, making me feel confident that I knew everything I needed to know about the home I wished to purchase. He also connected me to a contractor for doing some re-modeling that I desired. And, I appreciate the fact that this connection was a positive one, too. The contractor is thorough and has been exceptional in providing good service at a reasonable price. I am still thankful for the work that Aaron did on my behalf. I would recommend him, and by extension, the Drew Coleman Team to anyone asking for a referral!

        - Sue Cummins
      • I had the absolute best experience with the Drew Coleman Team. Specifically, I worked with Aaron Pontius and he was amazing. Always available for questions and showings, always gave us thoughtful, honest advice and showed us the best houses! Between Aaron and Alisha Epling, they both worked tirelessly to help the process go smoothly after we decided on a house as well. I cannot recommend them higher, and I will absolutely be referring everyone I know. Thank you all for making this nerve-racking process of buying my first house, easy and relatively stress-free!

        - Nikki Clark
      • We worked with Aaron to find our home and he was great! He was very professional and polite during the entire process and extremely helpful while we were viewing homes. We were first time home-buyers and he was awesome at making sure we knew both the positives and negatives of the homes we looked at and what those meant for us in the future. I appreciated his candor since it helped us make an informed choice and made me feel like he was invested in us getting the type of home we were looking for. When we found the house we wanted, he did a great job making sure that we got our bid in despite a 1-2hr turn around for the cutoff. This included starting the offer paperwork before the visit and getting it completed after. He helped us tailor the offer as well, figuring out what was important to the sellers, which made a huge difference with us being accepted over other offers. It was very nice to have someone who was knowledgeable, savvy and understood what we were looking for without being condescending. He was always available and happy to spend a extra time with us when we needed additional information or explanations. I felt confident throughout the entire process that we had chosen the right person to assist. The paperwork process was very transparent and easy - Alisha was the person helping us and answered all of our questions! If the whole Drew Coleman team is as competent, helpful and nice as these two, then you're in good hands! 10/10, would recommend them to get you in a home.

        - Sara Stahl
      • [ link omitted ] she got us in to see the house we were interested in within a couple of hours. She was able to answer our questions in a clear manner. We had our house on the market for two months before we got an offer. During that time Victoria was always willing to get us entry to homes from Gresham to Albany even though we couldn't make any viable offers without having our house under contract. She was patient and didn't ever bring up signing an agreement to be our exclusive Buyers Agent. When our house sold she was always on top of any home that interested us. When we found the house we wanted she always was there for us even when things got complicated with contingencies that the Sellers pushed very hard get us to agree with. Through the whole process Victoria constantly communicated to us what we needed to know that same day. On the day we were to take possession she stepped in to help the Buyers agent remove possessions out of the home when sudden health issues put the Sellers in a bind. Lastly Victoria arranged to have the home professionally cleaned for us. This review is long but I can't stress enough how great our experience was with Victoria.

        - Steve and Laura Johnson
      • Joel was a delight to work with from start to finish. My partner and I would highly recommend him to any home buyer. Joel is incredibly knowledgeable about the home-buying process, and clearly communicates next steps and sets expectations throughout. There were never any surprises in our purchase because Joel kept us prepared the entire way. Joel is highly responsive and flexible, and willing to answer all questions until you are comfortable. Joel helped us negotiate with the seller (and with his guidance we got much more than we would have even asked for otherwise), and he helped to coordinate and oversee inspections, and helped us to understand the reports. Joel helped us get our dream home, made the home-buying process very easy for us, and we couldnt ask for more.

        - Tyler Hall
      • The Drew Coleman Team gave us all the confidence in purchasing our home! Jillian was fantastic and came through on every aspect of the process.

        - Tori Schmalz
      • Drew and his team are unmatched in their service level and expertise. We sold our home very quickly (24 hours) and Drew knew that in the highly competitive market we would need to be ready with a strong and solid offer at the very moment we found our new home. We expected a bidding war to ensue on the beautiful home we found and it did. With Drew and his team working diligently to keep our offer on top we prevailed without over-paying and are now the blessed and happy owners of this home. Additionally, thanks to Drew's diligence in doing a market analysis on this home...to get a good estimate of it's value for us, we not only paid a fair price for it...we moved in with equity! DOUBLE HIGH FIVE! Throughout the entire transaction, although Drew and his team have many clients, we always were made to feel important and that we had their full attention throughout the process. They never missed a beat! Hire them and you will be glad you did! :)

        - Matt & Lisa Grier
      • Robin Malcomson - The Opt Group - Great realtor, knows her stuff. She communicates well, listens, and follows thru. Makes transaction easy by keeping everyone on track with dates and timelines. Highly recommend!

        - April Sabbe
      • Alexa is absolutely phenomenal. It's been a pleasure working with Alexa and her team. She provided us resources to stay organized, she was proactive with the seller when we had questions, she is prompt, she is reliable, and she goes above and beyond. She was also very patient and willing to work with us until we found a home we loved, and even faced all the unexpected ordeals with us. I have never met such a kind-hearted agent and I couldn't imagine working with anyone else throughout this process. I am so happy to have Alexa by our side.

        - Jenny & Linda Zhu
      • Jon and the team at OPT recently helped me with the sale of my home in SE Portland. Although I didnt get the price I had hoped for, Jon was very helpful in getting the thing sold during these difficult times. Once a price was agreed to, the sale proceeded very smoothly and the closing was reasonably quick and easy. Many thanks and high recommendations to Jon Gooley and the team at OPT!

        - Trey Thomas
      • Victoria is simply an amazing agent! She has a keen understanding of people and is incredibly easy to get along with. She is attentive, quick responding and follows up on things with a sense of urgency. We will use her services for the duration of her career. Ive never worked with a person so suited to this career. If you are looking for an agent, stop looking and call her ASAP!

        - Christina & Jeffrey Dewitz
      • I had a phenomenal experience working with Andrea at Opt! We bought our house sight unseen with her guidance; she toured several homes for us over Facetime, and she was great about advising us NOT to pursue a house if it didn't meet our criteria (which was occasionally difficult for us to tell, since we weren't there in person). She's incredibly knowledgeable, she got us a fantastic deal, and the team at Opt who helped facilitate the transaction and escrow process were sharp and on top of it. I highly recommend working with them!

        - Katherine Mechling
      • OPT Real Estate was with us every step of the way for the purchase of our second home. Robin Malcomson was super responsive and went above and beyond. Very pleased with this experience and happy to recommend OPT to all.

        - Dawn Harms
      • Andrea was amazing to work with, and she was so patient & understanding with us! My boyfriend and I just closed on a house on the 29th, and we couldnt have been happier to work with Andrea for our first home. Thank you for everything! :)

        - Shayla Tran
      • Loved working with John Sieling and OPT. John took care of us every step of the way and kept us up to date on all the happenings. He made the process super easy. Helped us find an awesome lender and property manager. Highly recommend John and his expert team!

        - Karen Eller Ha
      • Was great to work with went out of their way to help us on the sale and making sure we got as much as we could out of our home.

        - Rick Thompson
      • We worked with Brody Cannon and Opt Real Estate to purchase our first home as a couple. Being non-natives to Oregon, Brody was a MASSIVE help in understanding where to buy and when. Brody was born and raised in Oregon and knows the neighborhoods like the back of his hand. He was always available for questions and worked endlessly every week to provide us with new houses to see. He also didn't hesitate to offer expert opinions about houses that we saw and was honest when he believed that something wasn't in our best interest. Brody and Opt Real estate do a great job of finding houses that are within their clients budget, that are good investments, and that fit what their customers want in a home. I cannot recommend Brody and the folks at Opt enough!

        - Nathan Unruh
      • Robin has been involved in buying and selling homes with us since 2014. She is a professional all the way. Gives great advice and really works hard for her clients.

        - Judith Zimmerman
      • As a first time homebuyer I had gone through dozens of real estate agents before scheduling a tour with Aaron. Before that any realtor I spoke with would be a quick chat and then they'd be gone, but Aaron consistently and responsively worked with me even in a chaotic market like today and helped me find an affordable property that became a huge new step in my life.I wanted to give Aaron a shoutout for his willingness to always go the extra mile, I'm still blown away that he offered to provide a video tour after I had to cancel a tour last minute, and it was excellent. He was always honest about issues the properties had, and was always on my side during the negotiation process, and his advice worked wonders in eventually getting the property. Compared to the average realtor Aaron is cut from a different cloth and I couldn't be happier with his work!

        - Marcus Vanausdell-Johnson
      • Alexa helped us sell and buy our new home. She did an excellent job. She helped connect us with a great contractor who helped do some repairs for selling. She even helped us find professionals to help remodel the new place. Alexa was very available throughout this whole process. Shes very honest and trust worthy. She did a great job navigating negotiations and was a bigger advocate for me than I was. I was very thankful to have her as my buying and selling agent.
