Sean Besso

    • I feel very lucky to have had Sean Besso as our agent. My fiance and I lived out of town and came to Portland on two separate weekends for open house tours. We were very impressed with Sean's knowledge of Portland and his experience with the Portland housing market. We trusted him and were grateful for his honesty when we made several offers for properties sight unseen. He worked so hard for us in every stage of the process. As first time home buyers, he couldn't have been more helpful. I feel that in this hot market, where it it hard to get a foot in, it is invaluable to have someone like Sean. I would give him eleven stars if I could.

    • Impressed with his social, professional and articulate manners. Very responsive to requests. Easily explains situations and information in a format that can be quickly understood and processed by individuals outside of the real estate profession. Enjoyed the experience and learned so much.

    • As a first time homebuyer I was a bit nervous and didn't really know what to expect. I got in contact with Sean via Zillow, he was very responsive and quick to set up a meeting. When I first met Sean I immediately liked him, I was impressed by his knowledge of the housing market and his friendly personality. During our time working together Sean was really honest and clearly had my best interest at heart. Overall he made the process seamless and was always there to answer my questions (I had a lot). I cannot thank and recommend Sean enough!

    • Sean Besso went above and beyond the call of duty in helping me to sell my problem property. He helped me to find affordable labor for cleanup both inside and outside. I would definitely use Sean again for future real estate transactions and highly recommend him to others.

    • Sean was very patient and helpful. He knows the area very well which was helpful to us because we were moving from out of state. He is super friendly and quick to respond. I would recommend him to anyone.

    • Sean ended up being my FOURTH Realtor. And wasn't an easy transaction, as two days to closing, FHA decided to call issue to the Buyers income. Sean had to endure my unpleasant attitude about the three weeks it took to finally close after the closing date. He is very smart and is on top of all documentation. He presented ideas to help push my house towards being sold. Sean also doesn't suggest inflated numbers to have you think your house isn't worth more than it truly is. He also tells you as it truly is. Further, he doesn't take a higher sales commission than the Buyers Agent. I was disgusted with seeing how my prior Selling Agents wouldn't even offer the standard commission to a Buyers Agent. I highly recommend anyone wanting a Blue Collar kinds Realtor, to hire Sean.

    • Sean was great to work with. I felt that he put my best interest first by explaining the whole process of selling my house and taking care of all the little details. Sean is very professional and works really hard at what he does, which in my opinion makes him one of the Top agents in Portland. You will not be disappointed if you hire Him to sale your house. I would use Him again and I would definitely recommend Him to anyone.

    • Sean worked with me for a long time to find just the right house at a price I could afford. He is friendly, professional, knowledgeable, an excellent communicator and does exactly what he says he will do. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who is interested in selling or buying a home!

    • Sean was amazing. This was a sensitive and emotional time for us but he and his team worked closely with us and were attentive all the way through the process. With little help from the buyer's agent, Sean worked through the paperwork professionally. We strongly recommend Sean.
