What our clients are saying
We pride ourselves on our exceptional customer care, support and attention to detail. Here are just a few thoughts from families we have worked with in the past.
I worked with Lara to sell my Portland, OR home. Lara was extremely well prepared for our first meeting and we were able to very quickly establish a competitive price and marketing strategy. Lara was extremely helpful and responsive throughout the process. She managed all aspects of the sale from staging to repairs. The house sold very quickly and for full price. I can’t recommend Lara highly enough.
Working with Lara was so easy! She was always on time, she lined up the best photographers, lenders, and handy people to help us get our home on the market quickly. We will be using Lara as our realtor for all future home purchases and sales!
Our family worked with Lara to both sell our house and purchase a new home. She was incredibly knowledgeable about Portland metro neighborhoods which helped us narrow our home search. Lara was great a negotiating! We go over the asking price for our old house and negotiated a great price for our new house. We couldn’t have been happier with the experience and confidently recommend her with the highest regard!
Lara took the time to understand our needs. We’re a busy two-career couple and Lara worked with our schedule to market our home and get to a sale. Ultimately we closed the transaction above our listing price. Lara took ownership of the process along the way and was a total pro.
Lara far exceeded our expectations while helping us sell our first home. She did so while representing us on the purchase of our next home. There is little doubt that her superior marketing ability was directly responsible in attracting multiple offers well-above asking price. Her business acumen guided us smoothly through both transactions despite the many obstacles we encountered along the way. Lara operated beyond compare in managing all facets of our complicated transaction and has, personally, been a pleasure to get to know. We would recommend her without hesitation.
With no reservation whatever, we recommend Lara James of Keller Williams Realty for service as both buyer’s and seller’s realtor in residential transactions. Lara’s patience, sound advice and generosity with her time were invaluable in helping us reach conclusions with which we are very happy. Lara’s work in every aspect of selling our current home has been nothing short of spectacular. She recommended a selling price that we thought was too high, but she was exactly right. Our house sold at the asking price Lara recommended within three weeks of listing. We are very confident in saying that Lara knows how to read the market and come up with the right asking price. Just before putting the house on the market, Lara had a stager visit our home and make recommendations to make the house more “sellable,” which we followed. She then had her photographer take interior and exterior photos that presented the house in a light probably more favorable than we have ever seen it. Aside from her clear professionalism and competence, Lara merits high praise for her winning personality, calmness in the storm of real estate transactions, and devotion to her clients. She has never been unavailable and responds to questions and requests immediately. We cannot imagine a better realtor and recommend Lara as highly as we can.
Lara is knowledgeable, responsive, and dependable and went above and beyond. I was very impressed with her knowledge in the West side, since that is where I was specifically was looking for a home. Lara knew the areas and neighborhoods and what the commutes would look like. She was present for things like repairs and checked in on the septic inspections. But for her, we would not have found out the repair people didn’t show up when they were supposed to- multiple times. When I needed movers to help me unload, she sent her son and friend over for a couple hours. I would highly recommend Lara as an agent.
We were moving to the market from out of state and though I had a little bit of knowledge about the city of Portland, Lara did a great job of getting to know my husband and I, our personalities, our lifestyle and what we were looking for in a home and made great recommendations based on what she learned from us. Lara was very thorough in her search for homes and we worked well together and she took my suggestions from afar. She made her self available in the limited time we had in the market and was committed to find us our perfect home in a short amount of time. In the end, the house we bought was a home that Lara found for us and it was the perfect home. We couldn’t be happier with Lara!
Lara did things beyond our expectations, she previewed homes based on our profile and was able to narrow down the search for a new home. Lara was knowledgeable and had sources available for us to use beyond the sale of the home. A highly capable professional whom we would recommend to anyone.

Lara James did an excellent job of finding a home for us, she was always there for us when we needed our questions answered, and she has the patience of a saint! I will be recommending her to all my friends!
