I am passionate about helping people. Every aspect from meeting my clients, educating them, negotiating for them, and guiding them through the process of buying and selling their home is exciting to me. That passion has remained for more than 17 years of selling real estate in Portland. I always look out for the best interest of my clients and as a Certified Negotiation Expert (CNE), I have an advantage that allows me to ensure the best possible outcome. I am also a Seniors Real Estate Specialist (SRES) who is uniquely qualified to help seniors and their families navigate the often challenging and emotional process of navigating the steps involved in selling a family home, downsizing, and/or relocating. The care I put into each sale has allowed me to maintain long-term client relationships. As a result, 90% of my business comes from referrals and that is something I am very proud to have earned.
As an Oregon native, I love Portland’s incredible culture and that we are within an hour’s drive to the amazing outdoor playgrounds of the Columbia Gorge, Mt. Hood, and the Pacific Ocean. My family and work keep me pretty busy, but whenever I get the chance to sneak away, you will find me on a hiking trail enjoying the surrounding beauty and reminding myself why Oregon is such a special place to be.
If you are interested in meeting with me and learning how my high standard of communication and service differs from others, please give me a call. I would be honored to work with you.
Jessica was recommended to us by a coworker who had two great experiences with her. We reached out to Jessica, and she set up an intro session to go over the process of purchasing a home and explained terms that were unfamiliar to us (first time homebuyers). We talked about our ideal home, and she was able to set up a daily email for us with new openings matching our criteria. Jessica did a great job of responding to our questions quickly and honestly, which was a highlight looking back at our time working with her. She made herself available to schedule showings and was wonderful at clear and concise communication throughout the whole process. We highly recommend her services to anyone looking to buy a home!
When I first started looking into the process of selling my home Jessica came highly recommended to me from my previous Realtor who helped me get my home many years ago but since had moved out of state. Jessica was such a blessing to work with. This was my first time selling and I was definitely overwhelmed in the beginning. In my initial meeting with Jessica she helped calm my nerves answering every question I had, explaining the process and helping me execute a checklist of things to work on and complete with deadline goals set in place. She had great recommendations of companies I could reach out to for a few repairs I needed to make. Everything came together so fast with getting my place on the market and the process of selling went even faster and seamless. If you are looking for a relator who is organized, knowledgeable, friendly, hard working and amazing at her job, Jessica is who you are looking for!
My wife and I purchased our first home with Jessica’s help. She was helpful and attentive throughout the entire process. From the very beginning to looking at houses, she came prepared with a planned route of all the houses we wanted to see. When we found the house that was right for us, time was of the essence and Jessica got to work immediately on putting in our offer. As we purchased from out-of-state, Jessica was there to help locally with everything that needed to be done. There were a few unexpected hurdles during the closing process but Jessica’s negotiation helped lower our purchase price and recover some money in rent-back. We would highly recommend Jessica and work with her again without hesitation.”
Jessica helped us buy our first house recently and it was such an amazing process! She was open to all of the houses that we wanted to look at, and arrived to our first showing with a packet ready for us that had an itinerary for the whole day. She came prepared! When it came to touring homes, she wasn’t afraid to ask questions, point out things that worried her, or be honest with us about elements of the home or neighborhood. There were specific things that she knew to look for from her experience that we wouldn’t have considered while touring a home. When we toured the home that we ultimately purchased, she spoke up about the opportunity the home held, and was so involved and communicative during the offer process and subsequent bidding war. After out offer was accepted, we could go to Jessica at any time of day or day of the week to ask questions or get updates on the closing process. We had an unusual appraisal situation, and Jessica was invaluable to have during the process to offer advice and advocate for us. When we got to move in, Jessica met us at the house with a nice gift and some beer to try from breweries near our new house, because she knows we like craft breweries. It was such a thoughtful gift. Now, even a month after we moved in, she still checks in to see if we need anything, and asks how we’re settling. I’d recommend Jessica to any friend looking to buy or sell a home!
Jessica is fantastic! We were looking at homes in all the outskirts/rural areas and she was more than accommodating in touring the countryside with us to look at properties. She was a pleasure to do business with and was always prompt and ready to respond to any questions or concerns we had, big or small. Not only was she professional, but personable as well. She was so easy going and organized. Even through the unforeseen COVID crisis she was on top of everything. She even made herself available while she was on vacation, definitely making us feel like we and our needs were a priority. If you are in the market for a home, we couldn’t recommend her more.
Jessica was/is amazing!! She made sure we had all the information we needed as we went through this whole process! We bought our first home with the ease of knowing we were being taken care of from start to finish!
As a first time homeowner/purchaser, I had very limited knowledge regarding the current trending market for properties in Portland and Jessica not only educated me, but also eased a lot of the frustrations and anxiety I felt over purchasing the right home. She is utterly amazing and truly cares about the wants/needs of her clients. Throughout the entire ordeal of locating a home, putting in an offer, and finally purchasing a home, her approach was always of that of a passionate professional but also that of a caring friend. I would highly recommend her to everyone in the Portland Metro area!
Jessica, you are amazing! Thank you for helping my mother transition to her new home. You were truly a blessing throughout the entire process …we couldn’t have asked for better service and knowledge during this process.
I enjoyed working with Jessica – she made the process for this first time purchase of a home for me much easier. I am a 70+ widow and buying a home after 40 years was a bit scary. She answered all my questions and was available at all times for my questions and to reassure me.
As a first time home buyer, I was nervous about the process. Jessica was patient and kind. She put me at ease, and was a tremendous support. Never pushy. Extremely responsive. Jessica is knowledgeable and an excellent guide. She made the transaction painless and easy. I am so thankful that she was the one to help me get to my goal of owning my first home. I would strongly recommend Jessica Andrus to anyone interested in purchasing property, and will work with her again in the future should the opportunity arise.
Jessica was fantastic to work with for both the sale of our home and the purchase of our next home. We had a very challenging and time-consuming home purchase due to the fact that the home we wanted to purchase was a short sale. Jessica had great patience and professionalism, especially because we were pretty high-maintenance home buyers! She hung in there and was able to reach out to colleagues and experts when needing advice on how to navigate some complicated requirements. We are so appreciative, especially because she never once pressured us to give up and find a different home. It took a while, and now we have the home of our dreams. Plus, Jessica is one of the nicest people you’ll ever meet!
Jessica represented us in a simultaneous sale & buy of two homes. The amount of intricate details and critical deadlines was mind boggling! However, she kept us on track and was indispensable in EVERYTHING. Her communications were always timely and filled with a detailed explanation of our options, and of her recommendations. She worked wonderfully with our mortgage and title company throughout the process, and she was even present on signing day! She also was indispensable in coordinating the various inspectors and contractors that were necessary for the transactions to move forward. Jessica is a great agent to contract with for a sale and/or buy transaction. Her services are well worth it!
Absolutely a pleasure to work with!! She was always there when I needed answers and went above and beyond. Jessica is both professional and knowledgeable.
Great personal service. Very helpful guiding me through a complicated process and quick to respond to any questions, day or night. Jessica gave me options I wouldn’t have thought of and kept me from getting too stressed throughout the buying process.
We love Jessica and will only use her for our real estate needs. She is very informative and knows what she is talking about. She listened to what we really wanted and was not pushy at all to buy something we did not want. We now have the home of our dreams! We recommend her to anyone! Thank you Jessica.
I have known Jessica for years. She is the most genuine person I know. When my brother-in-law & his wife said they were ready to look for a new home I said I know exactly who to call. Jessica was very diligent in finding them what they wanted. They are now happily living in “their” dream home thanks to Jessica’s focused persistence! I’d definitely recommend her again.
