What Our Clients Say

We first met Lance almost 20 years ago when he was representing our new next door neighbors. Over the years we stayed in touch, so when we decided to start looking for a new house, we immediately thought of Lance. He’s so good at being able to connect and get to know you, as well as your likes and dislikes. We always felt that he was looking out for our best interests and wasn’t there to just make a sale. He’ll tell you if he thinks the house isn’t the right one for you, and when to be patient and keep looking. And when you find the right one, he’ll push you to go for it. He’s a skilled negotiator and we trusted his judgement for every step of our home buying + selling journey. And bonus, he’s fun to tour homes and hang out with!

– Heather & Thomas

Lance and Team led us through our Portland home sale. Considerations in choosing Lance were his knowledge of our neighborhood, his keen focus on an aligned strategy, frequent and precise communication and his “can do attitude”. The stresses of the home sale were reduced when we saw how the team organized their plans and critical details. We have moved multiple times and know that strategic agents with excellent communication skills are not easy to find. We made the right choice in Lance.

– Jim & Stacey

We worked with Lance Marrs when we first moved to Portland and bought our home. Being a Portland local, Lance knew every neighborhood (in the city and the suburbs) and helped us navigate which area would be fitting for our family and needs. After viewing a few properties together, he was able to hone-in on exactly what we were looking for and found us the perfect house. Because he is so well connected in the area, he was able to leverage his relationship with the listing agent to ensure a smooth escrow process and help us find trusted vendors for inspections, etc. The process was pleasant, and fun and we were so grateful for his guidance, which made our move to Portland less stressful. When we decided to sell our property, we again used Lance as our listing agent. He used the absolute best photographers, marketing and showing strategy to drive interest in the home. And his understanding of the market helped us price it competitively so that we ended up with a handful of offers to choose from. Lance saw through communication with the buyer’s agent all the way through the escrow, and made the whole process absolutely seamless for us. I could not recommend a better realtor to work with than Lance Marrs. His knowledge of Portland and the surrounding areas, enhanced by his deep connections and interpersonal relationships are hugely beneficial to anyone looking to buy or sell. And he’s just an amazing human that you want to be around and work with. He feels like part of the family now.

– Tobey

Lance gets it. He understands that real estate is individual and personal. Lance listens as he leads, both uncovering and organizing the objectives of the deal. It’s Lance’s innate ability to navigate the nuance, and still maintain perspective, that makes him special. At every step, Lance and his team deliver to the highest professional standards, but it’s Lance’s respect of the many dimensions of real estate that make it so valuable to work with him.
