    5 Stars: I kept nodding my head up and down as I was reading all the reviews previously written about Chad. Yes, he did all of those things that others have mentioned. The part that surprised me as I read all of those is that, like many others, I had no idea he was working with any clients other than us because he made us feel as though we were his number one priority. Our story is a little different, but our adoration for Chad is the same as everyone he works with. He is absolutely incredible. If you want to hear about our PHENOMENAL experience, continue reading. We were buying a house from across the country with no time to fly out and look at homes ourselves. We were making a transition from grueling military life to the freedom and joy of Portland civilian life (that's another story!). We had a strict deadline to meet because we were transitioning out of the military and knew it would be better in the long run to buy in this ever growing Portland market, than to wait and have to find a rental with 5 lovely fur babies! These details are important because Chad made this happen. We would send him a list of options, we trusted his judgement on the ones he decided to VIDEO for us and he would drive to each of them and either FaceTime us or send us videos depending on our availability. WAIT A HOT MINUTE! You're probably thinking, "He drove to the houses and sent you video and that's how you decided to buy your home!?" HECK YES! Chad found us the perfect home based on our description, sent us e-documents to sign which was SUPER easy & convenient, he worked with our lender, he handled it ALL right until the very end when he offered to meet us ON THANKSGIVING DAY after we drove across the country to give us the keys to our home sweet home. We have since lived here for 6 months and feel as though we've been here forever. Not a day goes by where we aren't grateful for Chad, his diligence, knowledge, and attention. He is THE BEST realtor. ever. ever. Thank you for finding us our home.- Heather
    5 Stars: Chad is always available and answers promptly. He goes out of his way to ensure all our needs were met. He is calm and professional dealing with stressful situations and he kept everyone sane! We loved working with Chad and will highly recommend him to our friends and family.- Monica W.
    5 Stars:Chad was great from start to finish. Highly professional and helpful in every way. This was by far our best experience purchasing a new home. We would recommend Chad to anyone looking for a home- Corey C.
    5 Stars: Chad took so much care in personalizing our experience that my wife and I complimented his veracity over many dinners and my 2 year-old son still asks about him. Simply put, Mr. Estes got it right. We were an international transfer with baggage to prove it. He quickly found the right people and diffused every situation without breaking a sweat. I feel sorry for anyone who has to follow his lead. Yes, Chad is that good.-Joseph B.
    5 Stars: Chad Estes was great to work while I was looking at purchasing my first home--he was a sounding board, able to provide feedback on what was realistic and took in my desires and expectations for a home and gave me some great houses to look at. Chad was also great about ensuring that all details are addressed throughout the buying process. All in all, I would recommend Chad as a realtor and am passing along his number to friends who are in the process of preparing to buy a house. -By Charlotte L.
    5 Stars:I was worried when looking that I would not be able to find something I liked at the price range I could afford to pay. I was amazed that once I explained to you what I wanted, where I wanted to live, and how much I could afford, the very next place you showed me was perfect. I felt you understood what I was looking for and acted quickly to find it for me. I think that because you were so detailed, the closing and the whole process of buying my first home went smoothly. I had heard many horror stories from people when they bought their homes and was nervous I was going to have one of those terrible experiences. I now tell everyone how wonderful my experience was and that next time they should call you. -Becky
    5 Stars:I have purchased and sold many properties in my time. I must say that Chad was the best realtor I ever had the pleasure of working with! He was attentive, kind, patient, and very engaged. It was clear that he cared about what was important to me and my family. He went above and beyond. You can't go wrong here.- Jonathan W.
    5 Stars:Chad goes above and beyond to help you find a home, answer questions and even evict squatters. Not a usual occurrence but he is on the job! Thank you Chad for your help in getting me into my home!- Letty M.
    5 Stars:Chad was very committed to this Seller to sell our rental home. It was a short sale and we had a difficult lender on our side who was not very organized within their company. Between Chad's drive and my persistence we were able to crash the schedule and close on the short sale before Thanksgiving (six months). This included two buyers getting cold feet and walking away from their deals. My father (Jimmie) is able to live in his golden years without the amount of stress this property caused him.We would definitely recommend Chad for any new first time home owner or to facilitate those short sales! He has gained this invaluable experience! Jimmie M. & Jim Shattuck Gresham OR
    5 Stars: Chad is great! I would say I tend to be a little more on the high maintenance side of the spectrum and he was there every step of the way making it all seem effortless! He was very helpful and informative during every step of the process and helped ease a lot of my first time home buyer nerves. He was always easy to get a hold of and quick to give input when I asked. I would definitely recommend him to friends and family looking to buy or sell a home.-Rebekah G.
    5 Stars: I just recently bought my first home and Chad had been a tremendous help from the beginning. With his experience, he answered questions before i asked and also provided me with knowledge and advise about things I didn't know to think about. He was extremely patient and always happy to answer me repeated question and explained how the process works and let me know what to expect.- Tracy C. He was very professional working with the selling agent and my mortgage broker. I could not have asked or found a better agent to be by my side. Whether you are a first time home buyer or a previous purchaser back on the market, I highly recommend having Chad as your agent.
    5 Stars:Chad was great to work with. He helped us figure out a timeline to best sell our home in a difficult winter season on sort notice and helped us feel confident and secure that our home was monitored and cared for after we moved halfway across the country while it was pending. He listened to my ideas and was always available to communicate when I had first-time sellers anxieties and frustrations. Chad knows Portland market very well, and we had a great experience working with him! I totally recommend him :) -Erin A.
