“Beth and her team were there every step of the way with information, guidance, support in our very complicated sale of a rural property with two sellers. They turned what could have been a very difficult situation into a manageable and smooth process. Can’t thank them enough and would absolutely have them as my go to for real estate transactions in the future.”

“I am glad I have connected with her. I am always be thankful to Beth; for her great knowledge and skills. Other than that, her courtliness, guidance from her vast sphere of knowledge to me on each and every step and be stand with me at all the places. We three friends bought their homes together and we share our experiences among us, at the end my other two friends regret why they didn’t choose Beth. I will always give her my first preference, and go with her, If I have to deal for another property.”

“By nature, I am a skeptical person who has had little faith and trust in salespeople. This skepticism comes from several experiences where there is a big difference between “the promise” and “the delivery”. Knowing this, friends of ours recommended Beth and shared how pleased they had been with her services over the years and how friends of theirs had recommended her to them. Beth and her associates professionalism put us at ease right away and we were confident that she could help us in spite of our tight parameters. I believe a true measure of a professionals abilities is how roadblocks and unforeseen problems get handled; anyone can handle a deal when everything goes smoothly. Beth did not disappoint! It was clear to us why she came so highly recommended.It is without reservation I recommend her to my friends and anyone who takes the time to read this. Her attention to detail, knowledge of the market and professional manner are a refreshing change to my previous experiences.”

“My partner and I were so very fortunate to have worked with Beth and Kara when we bought and sold a house last summer. The financing was a total nightmare and had it not been for the support and unwavering optimism from Kara, as well as Beth, I know we would not be in our dream home today. From the viewing of new homes to the showing of our old home, all aspects were dealt with professionally and with the utmost attention to detail. That expertise saved us time and dollars, but mores reinforced how committed this company is to providing excellent customer service and satisfaction. You will not be disappointed by working with Beth Earnest and Associates.”

“Beth and her team were wonderful from beginning of my search to after my purchase. In fact it was Beth’s team member Kara Dale-Sonners who found my house for me! Kara knew me better than I knew myself. They took into consideration what I wanted , my lifestyle and what would work for me. When it came time for negotiating, there is no one I would rather have respresenting me then Beth and her team. She fought hard for me and it paid off. The closing was smooth and uneventful- the way you want it. I just celebrated a year in my house and everyday I love it more. I am so grateful to Kara and Beth and the whole team!”

“Beth is the best agent our family has worked with and met by far. She stands out from the rest because of her integrity, honesty, authenticity, and hard work ethics. She was able to tailor her services to meet my family’s situation and needs, and always had our best interest at heart. She is able to think out of the box when needed and is very knowledgeable on all levels. Beth was able to sell our home efficiently and made the complicated process very easy for all of us. Beth is definitely a gem and I couldn’t thank her enough for everything she has done for our family.”

“We met Beth and Kara at an open house they were hosting in the Portland area. They were both friendly, extremely professional and impressively knowledgable about the Portland area and market. Anyone looking for a hard working, honest, creative and knowledgable realtor should consider working with Beth and Kara.
Thank you for all of your help over the past month.”

“This summer, my husband and I sold one home and bought another using Beth and Kami as our realtors on both transactions. They were truly amazing! Both transactions were complicated by the other parties, but Kami and Beth maintained an exceptional level of professionalism throughout. Their strong relationships with multiple contractors made the home repairs we needed to do on our sale home run smoothly and efficiently with zero effort on our part. They were even able to coordinate a surprise short sale (due to the seller’s misunderstanding of his obligations) on our purchase home and get it closed in under 30 days to beat the rate extension deadline on our loan. We were so impressed! Very highly recommended!”

“Worked with Beth all the way from Washington, DC and she definitely knows how to work with out of state buyers to get them just what they need. We were looking for a short sale which made things even more difficult but Beth dutifully went to each place we wanted to check out to let us know what she thought. We finally found one and as soon as she said it looked good she had an offer ready to go. She made the painful process of completing the short sale as easy as possible and we got into our house with no problems. Beth has so many contacts and always has a “guy” for everything, no question goes unanswered. I highly recommend her to anyone.”

“Beth’s team helped handling everything after my family relocated. Beth held multiple open houses and everything went smoothly with the offer. Beth’s team even helped on installing the CO detector that we forgot to buy, activating the sprinkler system and quite a few other things which were requested by the buyer. We were impressed with the services. Highly recommended!”

“Simply put, I am thrilled with Beth. My ranch home in Raleigh Hills was listed with a different realtor. I was a bit frustrated with lack of communication and marketing. The result was my home sat on the market for several months without success. I relisted with Beth and, what a difference! She called my place a cream puff and it sold quickly, especially for this economy. She even managed things as I was out of the country when the home sold. There was a major problem with a sewer line and she handled that. Result: a smooth closing and cash to spend. I was looking for a one level condo but not finding anything I liked. After showing me what was available, Beth recommended looking at townhomes which I was resistant to. She was gently persistant thank goodness. I could not be happier. I purchased my new beautiful home on a greenbelt. She recommended an excellent painter and he repainted the entire town home and garage in custom colors. I truly love this place., This development takes care of its homeowners and the units are well built. I never hear my neighbors. It’s a great community and an excellent area with easy access to downtown, the Max, and the Cedar Mill area. Throughout both sale and purchase, Beth looked out for my interests in every way. If it hadn’t been for Beth, I would not be in this perfect home for a great price. I’m hard to please and she made it all happen smoothly. Beth is my best experience with a realtor in my life, and I have had several experiences over the years. In fact I worked as a realtor. It’s not an easy business, but Beth makes it look easy. Beth is a top professional, easy to talk with and she really hears her clients. Beth and her assistant Tracy are wonderful and I consider them angel friends. Beth has been so thoughtful with fabulous housewarming gifts on top of everything else. She truly has all the traits of great realtor plus she’s fun, funny and fabulous!”

“Hi! Beth helped me find my first home a few years ago. I was 25 and needed quite a lot of hand-holding! She was more than patient as I went back and forth between wanting a house or a condo. We looked everywhere from the inner SE, NE, Sellwood, Alphabet District, as well as parts of North Portland. After many homes and condos (the Portland housing market was very interesting in 2009!) I settled on a cute cottage in the North Portland neighborhood of Kenton. I wanted old with lots of charm, which is what I ended up with. Keep in mind however, we also looked at modern and urban properties. Even with all the different directions I pulled Beth into, she knew just where to go and what to look for in each property and their Portland locations. From writing up the deal to negotiating, to even holding my hand through the loan side, I could have not asked for a more professional and knowledgeable agent. Even after 2 years of living in my home, I still remember the buying process and thanks to Beth, I remember it being one of the most exciting and positive times in my life. When the time comes for me to move on from my current home, Beth will be the one I call to list it, as well as be the agent that helps me find a new home. Many many thanks. I cannot recommend her enough!”

“I just recently worked with Beth to purchase my first house. As a first time home buyer, I was pretty nervous about the whole home buying process. However, during the first conversation I had with Beth, it became clear that she has a lot of knowledge and experience, and I knew I would be in good hands. Being a first time home buyer, I had lots of questions about the home buying process, particularly since the house I bought was a short sale. Beth did an excellent job of explaining the process to me and answering all of my questions. I really appreciate how patient Beth was with me during this entire process. Not once did I feel rushed or pressured to make a decision. I could tell that she really cared about helping me find just the right house at a great price. Another thing that helped me tremendously is that Beth has a great network of carpenters, carpet installers, etc. that she referred me to for the work that I needed on my house. Since I had always had a landlord to do the work previously, I wasn’t sure who to call for what. Beth saved me a lot of time and stress by providing the references to me. I was confident that I could expect quality work from anyone that Beth recommended to me. I really felt like Beth’s service went above and beyond what I had expected from a real estate agent. It was a pleasure working with Beth, and I would highly recommend her.”

“The only reason I gave Beth Earnest a 5-star rating is that the rating scale confines me to five stars. Simply put, Beth Earnest is probably one of the most competent individuals I have had the privilege of working with in recent memory. I contacted Beth when my wife and I wanted to buy a bigger home in a quieter neighborhood. Right at the outset, Beth was very attentive to our needs and actually asked probing questions that helped us understand better what our choices were. Beth advised us to keep our current home and rent it out, rather than pushing us to lower the asking price. In doing so, Beth looked out for our interests rather than chase the next commission opportunity at the expense of her clients’ best interests. Her integrity as well as strategic acumen won us over at the outset. I cannot overstate Beth’s role when it came to the actual home-buying process. Speaking analogously, she is a lot like Sandra Bullock’s character in “The Blind Side” in terms of how she combines hustle with compassion. She accommodated me with home-viewing sessions every weekend (both days) for 6 weeks in a row. She and her assistant developed comprehensive viewing schedules, were always punctual, called sellers ahead of time to confirm, and provided insights into considerations (power lines, siding, etc.) that we would have been unaware of otherwise. Throughout the process, she was very quick to respond to phone calls and emails at all hours of the day. She also explained why certain things could or could not be done, and how they would affect us from an equity, living as well as future resale perspective. This was refreshing since she played the role of educator, rather than sitting on her expert perch. As we drove from one home to the next, she would ask us what we liked/disliked about the last home so as to understand our needs better. When we did move forward with a house, she was present through every turn in the process. Whether it was the inspection, sewer-scope, working with a broker or negotiation for fixes/discounts, she helped drive the process. Some of this happened to fall during Thanksgiving weekend, but Beth never complained, which in this age of lack of ownership that we live in, was a rather refreshing change. Beth’s thoroughness was exemplified in one rather concrete example: She worked with the seller to complete certain fixes to the house required after the inspection. She also obtained receipts for said fixes so that we could have that proof in case we needed to use the warranty, which she also helped us obtain. Beth also was present during closing day and answered all the questions we had. She has been helping us with logistical requests to this day, well after she has been compensated and has no real financial incentive to keep helping us. Lest I forget, Beth never ever rushed us into anything. She never pushed us to do anything. In fact, she was the voice of calm and reason throughout this journey. Beth has also shared with us her own experiences renting out her houses and that has been valuable. In particular, Beth’s anecdotal guidance speaks to her experience as well as the fact that she is always looking out for us. In summary, I believe that after love, the greatest gesture you can offer anyone is your labor. Beth combines both love and labor in her job, and it shows. I have the greatest regard for her as a human being and a professional. Not only am I grateful for her services, but find her exemplary and worthy of emulation.”

“I bought a short sale with Beth and she really worked hard to make this happen! Her extensive knowledge of the market and how “things work” makes a big difference when it’s time to negotiate a tricky deal. I also love how she is so supportive and helpful in every aspect of the home buying process. She referred me to a GREAT carpet contractor who came in the day before my scheduled move to get the carpets done in time. Beth is not just doing business transactions; she actually cares that you get the best possible deal for a house that you’ll love for years!”

“We have worked with Beth a couple times and love her dearly! The first time she helped us buy a house, and even with multiple buyers interested in it got us a good deal (for the time). In 2011 she sold a different house for us, in probably the worst market of this whole real estate crisis. Friends and family told us not to get our hopes up, but Beth never gave up and kept marketing and marketing, using tried and true in addition to searching for new innovative ways to get our house out there. And it sold! Beth delivers like no other- we highly recommend her!”

“Beth surpasses the term the “extra mile”. We have bought and sold houses with her and have been very pleased with all transactions on each end. She keeps you informed with details regarding the purchases and or sales, she is very aware of the market and backs up her research with facts, and leaves you not wondering…maybe I could have done a little better. She can do wonders on the financing end and enjoy working with her on all levels, I look forward to the next deal!”

“I have used Beth Earnest to sell and purchase my last two homes and will continue to use her in the future. She has been very responsive to communications and definitely “knows her stuff”. On the selling side, Beth has built many relationships with other realtors which helps bring in potential buyers that may not have opted to view your home while searching on their own. Although I’ve heard Open Houses don’t produce a lot of sales, Beth and her staff still held many while selling my homes to increase the odds of a sale. She is also honest and skilled with her assessments of client’s homes as they begin the sales process. On the buying side, Beth’s strengths are in getting to know the client’s tastes in order to narrow down house searches, resolving significant issues on the inspector’s punch list in her client’s favor, as well as negotiating a good price. In my dealings with Beth, she also has never tried to push me into buying something that made me uncomfortable.”
