Jeremy Lock
Waypoint Brokers Collective
About Jeremy

My entry into the world of real estate began in 2003 when I worked as a new home consultant for a national home builder in San Diego, CA. The experience was invaluable as it allowed me to witness homes in all stages of the construction process and gain a better understanding of a home's systems and how they worked together. I still apply the insight gleaned from this experience regularly as it allows me to evaluate homes on a more critical level. Upon relocating to Portland, I felt that it was imperative to align myself with a brokerage that embodied the same level of professionalism and client centric approach that I prided myself on providing to my clients. After working with several of the areas' high producing teams, I quickly realized that Waypoint Brokers Collective was where I belonged. Its boutique feel, higher level of personalized service, and fresh take on marketing made it evident that my clients' interests would best be served here. My goal is to make your real estate transaction a pleasant one. Not one strewn with unforeseen surprises, but rather smooth and seamless made possible through proactive communication. I look forward to working with you!

About Thomas

Tom and Maya Brooks grew up in real estate families as Tom's father has been in real estate for 25 years beginning in San Diego and now a realtor/broker on Maui, and Maya's dad, is a prominent real estate developer and founder of Cima Enterprises. Beginning their careers working with their fathers, they soon met and joined forces on their own as an unbeatable, award winning San Diego team. As the real estate market changed, they focused on foreclosures and short sale properties helping many owners finding themselves "upside down" or, owing more than their property was worth. The Brooks Team received many awards for all the work they do for buyers and sellers alike, receiving recognition as "Executive Club Awards" and "President's Club Awards". As the market has turned around and their business continues to grow, they are still in the top 3% of real estate agents in San Diego County, and in the top 10 producers at Coldwell Banker West. Their motto is "Experience, Integrity and Results!" and this speaks volumes about how they treat their clients. "Our dedication to complete customer satisfaction, through daily communications, helpfully walking our clients through the process of negotiations, paperwork, and each step of the escrow process until we successfully close the escrow and happily hand over the keys! " Skilled and experienced negotiators, they will help their clients understand the true value of the property based on actual comparison sold properties, then help write strong offers in a market when there are sometime multiple offers. The strength of their negotiation skills and advice can make the difference between and accepted offer or a disappointing rejection! With 17 years of combined experience and highly trained as Realtor, Broker and Property Management, they look forward to a long path of continued success with great appreciation to all the referrals from past clients that have sent their family and friends, trusting them with the biggest investments in their lives. "Nothing is more rewarding than handing buyers the keys to their new home, or successfully closing an escrow for a happy seller!" Also, their Property Management experience has brought property owners many years of headache-free management. Maya and Thomas Brooks have a passion for what they do, and their satisfied buyers and sellers become friends and clients for life!

“ I was very fortunate to have Laura Byther as my selling agent. Since I was an inexperienced first-time seller with a complicated situation, I came into the situation nervous and not knowing what to expect. Laura immediately put me at ease with her vast knowledge of the real estate market cultivated...“

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Portland?
When you sell a house, your real estate agent becomes your business partner, financial advisor, and emotional support system. It’s crucial to partner with someone you trust, so make sure you’re looking for an agent who can answer all of your questions with confidence during the interview. During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area. You’re listening for things that signal experience, expertise in your community, and workload. Selling a home takes an enormous amount of work, so you need an agent who’s got a plan for prep, pricing, and marketing and who is ready to roll up their sleeves to get the job done.
Read more
How important is it to hire a top real estate agent in Portland?
Our data shows that the top 5% of listing agents sell homes for as much as (+9%) more than the average real estate agent. A great agent makes a difference when you buy a house, too: We’ve found that the top 5% of buyer's agents on average save their clients 2.5% more on their home purchase. So, whether you’re in the market to find your dream home or sell your house at a great price, the right agent matters. We encourage you to connect with a top real estate agent if you’re buying or selling a home in Portland, ME.
Read more
When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Portland?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date. When you start the search for an agent several months before hitting the market, there’s plenty of time to find the best agent, make key renovations, and market your home effectively, all of which are essential steps in selling your home for a great price. You can also hire an agent based on the best time to sell to take advantage of seasonal and cyclical trends in the market. The right time to hire a real estate agent depends on the temperature of the housing market. For example, the best time to sell is in May. And since it takes around 3 months to close on a home, you should list in February. We recommend that you hire a real estate agent as soon as you're thinking of selling your home. Generally speaking, that's anywhere from 3 to 6 months prior to your desired move date.
Read more
What is the average real estate agent commission for agents in Portland?
While individual real estate agent commissions do vary, most real estate agents work for 6% of the home price.
