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!
I feel very fortunate to have John Sieling represent me in all my real estate needs. John has acted as a the listing agent for my home, as well as help me find great renters for my investment property. The unique thing about John is his honesty, he will tell you what he thinks even if it means not closing the deal. He really puts the time in to make sure he’s bringing the best deal to the table. On top of it all, he’s got a great sense of humor and is really fun to work with.
John is super patient. Definitely more than I would be. He knows the areas and helped my wife and I navigate what we were looking for in different pockets of town. Very easy going and willing to go at our pace. Would suggest you give him a call. Very down to earth and easy to talk with..
John Sieling was so professional and easy to work with. I loved how he always communicated what was happening daily, with accuracy. He has a very pleasant personality and does not pressure you! If you want a realtor to get things done efficiently, call John!
Outstanding service from John when dealing with an international client. Always responsive and professional and dealt with the impact of Covid-19 extremely well. Would not hesitate to recommend. Thanks for your service John. Regards, John Gosling
We have been particularly impressed by your commitment and dedication throughout this enterprise and you can rest assured that our (posted reviews) will reflect our sincere appreciation of your efforts on my behalf. I was impressed in my dealing with (the referring agent) when selling my California home- John, you have actually outperformed (his) outstanding capabilities!!
John helped us sell four lots we had permit ready in SE Portland. The sale went through in about a month (very fast for land sales) and within $10k of his target price. It was the easiest transaction I’ve ever done. John found and appraised our buyer, held them accountable for following the contract, updated us quickly, made and clarified useful recommendations for the decision points, and negotiated firmly and deftly on our behalf. I’ve since rehired him for another land sale I want to get done.
I do have to say that your communication was awesome. You stayed on top of it as far as I could tell, and you got the job done quickly! Great work, and thanks!
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
