Purchased & Sold Homes in Beaverton, Oregon
Lara far exceeded our expectations while helping us sell our first home. She did so while representing us on the purchase of our next home. There is little doubt that her superior marketing ability was directly responsible in attracting multiple offers well-above asking price. Her business acumen guided us smoothly through both transactions despite the many obstacles we encountered along the way. Lara operated beyond compare in managing all facets of our complicated transaction and has, personally, been a pleasure to get to know. We would recommend her without hesitation.

Purchased Single Family Home in LO & Sold Townhome in SW Portland
With no reservation whatever, we recommend Lara James of Keller Williams Realty for service as both buyer’s and seller’s realtor in residential transactions. Lara’s patience, sound advice and generosity with her time were invaluable in helping us reach conclusions with which we are very happy.
Lara’s work in every aspect of selling our current home has been nothing short of spectacular. She recommended a selling price that we thought was too high, but she was exactly right. Our house sold at the asking price Lara recommended within three weeks of listing. We are very confident in saying that Lara knows how to read the market and come up with the right asking price. Just before putting the house on the market, Lara had a stager visit our home and make recommendations to make the house more “sellable,” which we followed. She then had her photographer take interior and exterior photos that presented the house in a light probably more favorable than we have ever seen it.
Aside from her clear professionalism and competence, Lara merits high praise for her winning personality, calmness in the storm of real estate transactions, and devotion to her clients. She has never been unavailable and responds to questions and requests immediately. We cannot imagine a better realtor and recommend Lara as highly as we can.

Purchased and Sold Homes in Lake Oswego
We were very pleased with Lara James realty. I was particularly impressed with her extensive knowledge of Lake Oswego where we sold and then purchased a home. Lara's interpersonal network is impressive. She is a leader with the Lake Oswego chamber and the school district foundation. In a hot real estate market, she helped us negotiate the purchase of a home not yet listed. For the sale of our home, she brought in a team of experts to get us "market ready". Our home sold quickly at a good price thanks to Lara. I highly recommend her to anyone seeking to sell or purchase a home.

Purchased a new construction single family home in SW PDX
We were moving to the market from out of state and though I had a little bit of knowledge about the city of Portland, Lara did a great job of getting to know my husband and I, our personalities, our lifestyle and what we were looking for in a home and made great recommendations based on what she learned from us. Lara was very thorough in her search for homes and we worked well together and she took my suggestions from afar. She made her self available in the limited time we had in the market and was committed to find us our perfect home in a short amount of time. In the end, the house we bought was a home that Lara found for us and it was indeed the perfect home. We could not be happier with Lara!

Relocated from out of state, purchased a townhome in Beaverton
Lara did things beyond our expectations - she previewed homes based on our profile -therefore she was able to narrow down the search for a new home. Lara was knowledgeable and had sources available for us to use beyond the sale of the home. A highly capable professional whom we would recommend to anyone. Hal and Arleen Andrews
Sold a Single Family Home in SE Portland (Westmoreland)
Working with Lara was so easy! She was always on time, she lined up the best photographers, lenders, and handy people to help us get our home on the market quickly. Lara was also excellent at negotiating with some very difficult potential buyers and their agent...truly professional! Lara went above and beyond in finding the perfect buyers for our home...a house that we truly loved and didn't want to sell to just anyone. We will be using Lara as our realtor for all future home purchases and sales!

Purchased investment properties on Portland's Westside
Lara strikes the perfect balance of friendly and professional. With her knowledge of the market, she gave us her opinion on properties which were spot on. She also asked questions of the other agent and inspector that hadn't been on our radar. She's the right agent to have on your side. She made the tedious transaction informative and easy. She's our go-to agent for future business.

Purchased a S. Waterfront Townhome and Sold in Tualatin
Lara took the time to understand our needs. We're busy people, a two career couple and Lara worked with our schedule to market our home and get to a sale. Ultimately we closed the transaction above our listing price. Lara took ownership of the process along the way and was a total pro.
The Gray Family
Our family worked with Lara this summer to both sell our house and purchase a new home. She was great to work with!! She was incredibly knowledgeable about all the Portland metro neighborhoods and suburbs and helped us narrow our search to the perfect neighborhood for our family. Lara was great at negotiating!! We got over the asking price for our old house and negotiated a great price for the purchase of our new house. We couldn't have been happier with the experience and confidently recommend her with the highest regard!! She made a very laborious process seem effortless.
