Thomas is a gem. Since we started working together he’s taught me a tremendous amount about all the variables to consider when looking for a home. He’s always been available, responsive, and informed. He has a great eye, has excellent contacts, and knows a tremendous amount about the Portland area. I am excited to continue working with him. On top of it, he’s extremely personable and funny. I would recommend him to anyone looking for an honest, dedicated broker.
Thomas helped me through the home buying process as my divorce was finalizing. I knew I could trust this process with Thomas from the beginning. He listened to all of my worries, fears, and hopes. The process took longer than what I’d experienced previously because of the pending divorce, but anytime we hit anything that felt like a bump or a snag in the process, Thomas was able to calm my nerves and help me trust the process by having solutions ready and waiting. I’m so lucky to have Thomas and the team at Piece of PDX in my life. They were there exactly when I needed them the most.
Thomas is a realtor superhero. I bought my first home under serious market pressure this year. I absolutely credit Thomas with turning a tricky process into a success. Thomas and his partner, Patrik, made it their mission to help me meet my goals, stay within budget, and find the perfect place for me–not only that, but we did it with only one offer. Thomas and Patrik worked side-by-side with my awesome loan officer to manage the moving parts of a complex transaction during an unusually high volume time of year. Despite overlapping with three federal holidays, we closed in fewer than 30 business days! Thomas also helped me with half a dozen contractor recommendations, which was invaluable to me as a first-time homeowner. I will recommend Thomas every chance I get!
Thomas is an amazing agent. Knowledgeable, proficient in his craft, amiable, and professional. He helped me find the perfect home and provided expert and timely advise prior to and throughout the home buying process. Even after the close of the sale, he continues to be an excellent resource for all things real estate related. Altogether an amazing agent.
Working with Thomas was a fantastic experience. I highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy a home. I was getting ready to leave on vacation when we first connection, and the entire time I was gone we were communicating about different properties, likes/dislikes, etc. When I returned, we started looking at properties right away. His diligence and network allowed my offer to get accepted on the most perfect house. Throughout the entire process, I barely had to do anything. Thomas took care of all the details to the point where it didn’t even feel like I was buying a house. He provided guidance on negotiating and prioritizing fixes and took care of coordinating with vendors. He kept me up to date through each step and was always available for questions. I had the utmost confidence in my home buying process due to Thomas’ knowledge and guidance. I realize that not all home buying goes so easily, but I guarantee with Thomas on your team, you will have a great experience. Thomas is a true professional and overall just a lovely human being to work with.
My husband and I recently purchased our first home with the amazing help from Thomas Shapiro. We were so scared going into buying our first home, but Thomas made everything seamless.

Whether your searching for your first home or this is your hundredth home, I HIGHLY recommend Thomas. He is assertive, honest and responsive which is a buyers dream! Thomas, if you’re reading this…. endless thank you’s!
Professional, great communication, wonderful advocate for my purchase. Made my move from out of state very smooth- sent documents in a timely manner and was there every step of the way up until close. I would recommend Thomas to anyone who is looking for an ethical professional who has his clients best interest protected.
We can’t recommend Thomas enough. He really listened to us and worked so hard to help us to sell our house with the best possible outcome. We are thankful for his overall expertise, attention to detail, organizational skills, excellent communication, hand holding, PATIENCE, humor, resource network and coordinating those who helped us get our house ready to sell.

We are so thankful Thomas were there to look out for us. We can’t imagine doing this with anyone else! He went above and beyond. Thomas is truly a full service Realtor. We wish you continued success in your future, Thomas. You are Simply The Best. Thank you so much!
Thomas was so great to work with. Not only is he remarkably responsive and super knowledgeable about real estate and the Portland area, he is also patient, kind, a calming presence, a voice of reason, and so fun to be around. I felt like I was in very capable hands throughout the process of selling my home and buying another. Thomas has my highest recommendation!
