Hi, I’m John Sieling. The Pacific Northwest is an amazing place to live. Some of the best music, food, culture and outdoor adventure in the world lives…right here! Being an ambassador to this wonderful region is the best part of my job. I consider it vitally important to listen deeply to my client’s goals and do my best to find a home that fits their lifestyle and aspirations! If selling, it’s about making sure that experience is as profitable, expediant and seamless as possible.
In my career as a real estate professional, I’ve found that providing the very best results means putting my clients first. This requires that I keep myself accessible, am a good communicator and respond quickly to your needs.
This “client first” philosophy has always been my approach and obligates me to continually improve my skills and ways of doing business. In addition, I’ve found that the latest technologies are enabling me to do everything I’ve always done, only much more quickly and efficiently. They’ve also helped me to extend the range of services I provide to my clients.
So when you decide that you’d like to buy or sell a home or investment property in the Portland area, let’s get some coffee and talk!
After we sold our condo in San Jose CA, we asked our San Jose agent to give us a referral for a real estate agent in Portland.
I first met John in San Mateo, as he has both connections and business in California. We had several conversations about what we were looking for, though we quickly learned that it was a pretty big leap going into a new market like Portland. There are a lot of neighborhoods with differing characteristics and qualities; John jumped right in, helped us identify and refine our needs, ferried us around the City to look at houses and set up great homes for us to see, even when he was out of town.
The Laurelhurst property we settled on involved a unique negotiation, both on price and terms, and required dealing directly with the seller/builder who had extensively remodeled it. John stayed on top of the entire transaction and made sure the details were addressed, many of which were not finished until the last minutes of the transaction. He also helped after closing, connecting us with his handyman resources to address a few post sale items.
If you are moving to Portland or already live in Portland, buying or selling, I highly recommend John.

Can I rate John with more than 5 stars? He worked very hard to sell a piece of property that I owned. . . it was on the market with another agent for 4 years (it was in Eastern Oregon) and he sold in it 2 months! He is amazing and a wonderful person. . . John thank you so very much for finally getting this done for me!
We were introduced to John by a colleague of his from the Bay Area who sold our house in San Carlos, CA. John made it easy for us to get up to speed on the neighborhoods in Portland because he related these neighborhoods to the ones we were familiar with in the Bay Area. He gave us a local perspective by sharing his favorite restaurants and coffee houses while we drove around looking at properties. In addition, he quickly got up to speed on our needs and wants. We arrived in Portland in early April looking for 2 types of properties: one to rent and one to live in. In the first 3 weeks we toured more than 50 homes. After helping us find the perfect rental property, John effectively and efficiently negotiated with the sellers, scheduled inspections, and guided us through the escrow process. We closed and moved in within a month of arriving in Portland! We look forward to continuing this adventure with John to find a home to live in long term

John Sieling was a dedicated maverick for us in finding our first home. He has a wealth of knowledge and experience and his social and emotional intelligence was also gratefully noted. He is someone you can be honest with and will be honest with you. Thank you for helping us with sincerity, prudence, and care

John is an excellent realtor. He is very friendly and helpful. House hunting with him was like going with a big brother. He never talked down to me when I asked silly questions and if something came up that he didn’t know, he knew how to get the answer. He went farther to help me than I ever expected from him. Kinda sad that our relationship is over; at least until I need to sell my house that is

We found John Sieling through the Internet. John communicated with us always in a timely manner and worked with our schedule. We were fortunate to have found such a great realtor who listened to us and helped us find a home we loved.

If I could give him a 10 out of 5, I would! I have been in many interactions with real estate agents (both from buying and selling, and 1031 exchanges), and John is, by far, the best, most “on top of things” agent I have ever met! He made sure that we got the best price and home for our needs. We asked to look at certain homes and he added a couple more on our list and his picks were much better for our needs. He even stayed on top of our loan officer to make sure everything was taken care of. I will definitely be using him again and more than willing to refer all of our friends to him. He IS the best!
