  • Katie could not have been better! She was always available, quick to update or change anything requested; and very involved. She went above and beyond our expectations. Her new sales approach prompted lots of responses. One could not find a better, nor more competent realtor anywhere. We highly recommend her to one and all, especially for those unique homes and/or conditions. Thanks to her our house sold!

  • It was a true pleasure to work with Katie. She was honest, a true professional. Katie was very interested in my financial goals and needs. She found a home for me that was perfect for my goals and left me with no doubt about my decision. Selling my house was incredibly easy. Katie negotiated when needed and always represented my interest.

  • Our impression of and experience with Katie was very favorable. We appreciated Katie's ability to provide sound marketing analysis and advice, while maintain respect for our emotional and financial concerns. We're very pleased with how Katie helped us sell our previous home and buy a new one that suits our “wish list” – we love it!

  • Our experience with Katie Bain as our realtor was excellent! Not only was she professional and competent throughout the entire process but she was also kind, supportive and thoughtful, making our experience as new homeowners an absolute pleasure. We wholeheartedly recommend Katie Bain to anyone looking to buy or sell a home… in fact, we already have.

  • I would recommend Katie to any of my friends that were looking for a home. She gave me great advice as a first time buyer and tempered my expectations in terms of budget, finances, and was willing to show me places essentially in every part of Portland so that I could make the best choice. Her communication was constant and helped provide clarity when my lending company failed to. She took on the job of all partied involved.

    Andy James, Seller
  • Katie spent so much time with us – both in completing the Buyer's Success Formula questionnaire, as well as touring houses – that she really knew exactly what we were (and were not) looking for in our new home. She didn't give up and found us the perfect place!
    Brian Christiansen & Tara West, Sellers and Buyers
  • We recently sold and closed our home in less than five months with Katie Bain's help, which is astonishing in one of the toughest markets we have seen in a long time. Katie was great, and we would wholeheartedly recommend Katie and EquityPoint.
    Linda & Matt Hopkins, Sellers
  • Katie Bain has been extremely helpful through the process with EquityPoint, the showings and sale of the house. She was always there for me and expedited the whole process. I would certainly recommend Katie to others.
    Bea Mayes, Seller
  • We were fortunate to find Katie as we were looking for homes on the East side. Katie first met with us to understand which product types and neighborhoods were interesting to us, as well as our financial objectives. While we had a few neighborhoods and a small house in mind, Katie showed us a variety of products and revealed wonderful neighborhoods we did not even know existed. After spending several weekends looking, we decided to purchase the first house we saw. The fact that we went through an extensive search made us feel comfortable that we bought the right house. Almost two years later, we love our house and our neighborhood more each day! And, as an added bonus, we get to visit those other great neighborhoods for dinner or coffee. Thank you, Katie!
