“We are so happy and excited about our home! Declan has was great! He was very supportive and patient and really impressed us with his negotiations and closing on the deal. We’re very grateful to be working with him and his team. Morgan has also been great and fun to work with!”

— John

Declan and his team were awesome. They sold my rental house very quickly and brought in three offers. Declan stays very calm and knows exactly what he is doing. I completely trusted him and his judgment and he delivered!

— Mary Wheat

Declan O'Connor and the O'Connor Group exceeded my expectations. From the initial planning up to the closing date, Declan and his team were 100% on top of everything. I travel a lot and was worried that my absence would slow things down. Not at all. I was constantly kept informed and he was always available to talk on the phone. I quickly realized my property and I were in good hands. If I am ever in a position to buy or sell a property in the Portland Oregon area again, Declan will be my top choice.

Declan, Sara and Morgan expertly guided my family through every phase of the selling and buying process. PREPARING FOR MARKET: identified key repairs, recommended de-cluttering pack-up and staging. HOME LISTING: advised on smart timing and the best pricing strategy for our needs. HOME SALE: advanced big picture approach with our end goals in mind. Attentive to contract details. HOME SEARCH: talked us through pro's and con's of many scenarios and helped us see what various options look like. HOME PURCHASE: Acted quickly to put together offers but extremely thorough on inspections so we had information we needed to make good decisions. Recommended quality professionals for improvements on new home. Our experience with the O'Connor Team was overwhelmingly positive!

The O'Connor Group has simply been a joy to work with – always upbeat but grounded, open to ideas and wants without a hint of pushiness, respectful of the perspectives of both buyer and seller -- making our steady progress toward closing on the sale an exciting, even entertaining, enterprise. As far as we are concerned, their team has set, and therefore are, the gold standard of service in Portland’s real-estate market. Any clients who come to them can feel confident that they have placed their interests in the hands of thorough professionals with the highest degree of competency and possessed of the personal qualities and organizational resources conducive to complete customer satisfaction.

Declan and team O’Connor were very helpful and patient the entire way through the home buyer process. We can’t say enough about how valuable their guidance was through our first time home buying experience.

— Anthony & Lexi

The O'Connor Group has been an amazing partner in this big moment of our lives in buying our first home in the United States. The team quickly understood what we wanted and found amazing options for us. We’re really thankful for all their support in finding our dream home. We are so happy and satisfied with all they did for us!

— Camilo

We can’t thank the O’Connor Group enough for helping make the purchase of our new home so seamless. We really appreciate the responsiveness and flexibility demonstrated by your team throughout the process. It was truly a pleasure working with you all!

— Steve & Sara

We really appreciate all the help from the O’Connor Group team during our first home-buying process. We think you’ve found the perfect home for us and we are so looking forward to getting the keys and moving in!

— Madeline

I worked with Declan and his team to buy a home in Forest Heights. They were always available to show properties when I wanted to see them. They were extremely knowledgeable and willing to offer advice/opinions without bias. The O'Connor Group advised me through the entire process and even checked on me after the closing of my home. I would highly recommend the O'Connor Group to anyone looking to buy a home in the greater Portland area.

— Mark

Declan and his team went above and beyond my expectations of a realtor. During my interview process, he took a full day to show me around Portland and I wasn't even sure I was moving yet! Once I locked in my job, he took me and my wife to several homes over my house hunting trip and was very knowledgeable about the entire process and current buying environment. We were able to close quickly and he was onsite and involved in the entire process throughout closing.

— Chuck S.

We can't thank the O'Connor Group enough for working with us and helping us to purchase our mid-century modern gem in Eastmoreland. We can hardly wait to move in!

— Van To

From day one and every step of the way, you were professional, timely, knowledgeable impeccably hard-working and competent, friendly, easy to communicate with, and highly adroit at navigating the potential stress-points of our sale. I was always confident that you absolutely had our best interest in sellers in mind, that you knew what we wanted, and that I could trust your advice. As out of state owners selling our former home five years after moving away from Portland, we knew we needed someone we could trust and also someone who would be willing to help us handle many of the on-the-ground details. From contracting with an affordable and competent handyman crew to get the place ready for sale quickly after the tenants moved out, to lining up four contractors under a short time frame to close the sale quickly, I never questioned that it would get done and yet I know to get that all that done in the time frame you did it required not only a great deal of diligence and hard work, but also relationships with contractors won over time by simply being very consistent and competent.

— Tom Knipe

Declan recently helped my wife and I sell our first home. It was a stressful experience, but he were able to help us every step of the way by being up front with their opinions and always keeping communication open. He were even there with instant solutions when the first buyers backed out of our contract 3 days before closing! Needless to say, I would 100% recommend Declan to anyone who is looking to buy/sell their home.

— Jeff Burmester

Declan and Chris are nice guys and great to work with, but there are a lot of nice realtors out there. The difference maker for me is they know how to close a deal, and you need every advantage that you can get in Portland's tight real estate market. Highly recommended for both buying and selling your home.

— Dustin & Rebecca Combs

We bought a great house with Declan. He not only handled all of the paperwork and answered all the process questions, but he was a great strategic adviser. We found the house we really wanted and he advised us to make a strong early offer, which avoided getting us in a bidding war later/ This was against my cheap guy idea of putting in a low ball offer. This advice got us the house and there with multiple over asking offers left waiting in the wings. I have always thought/joked that realtors were bottom feeders that just got in the way, but Declan changed my mind and earned deserved every penny of the sellers money. Nice guy too.

— Ed & Jen Kuyper

My home sold in less than three days at well over the asking price—the kind of success you can’t really argue with. And, this was due as much to the steady support and guidance offered by Declan and his assistant, Chris, as it was due to the market. Declan and Chris were there every step of the way, providing answers to my questions and anticipating my needs before they were even clear to me. The sale was as seamless and painless as a home sale could be. I couldn’t make a higher recommendation.

— Ed Reid

Declan responded promptly to all our calls. I am a worry wart and they were very patient. They also kept us up to date on the transaction. Best thing is that they sold our home in 4 days! I would highly recommend using Declan!

— Maria Red

I have only positive things to say on my experience with Declan & Hasson. Here is a brief summary: · Very market knowledgeable. I think there is a certain depth of market understanding most agents have……but Declan’s depth has got to be in the top 5% of Portland RE professionals. Also….he listened really well to what we wanted and steered us toward where we would be happy and did not waste our time showing us amazing homes in neighborhoods or parts of the city he knew we would not like. · Affability. One of the key reasons we decided to purchase a home on what was really a “market familiarization trip” is that Declan presented us the dynamics of the market in a fact based and non-emotional way. We certainly did not feel pressured to purchase to buy our home……in fact Declan both said it was a great property (though at the high end of what he believed to be the value for money) and that he was certain if we decided to “pass” we would land a great home in due time. This gave us confidence and trust in our decision making. · Team-Work. “Team O’Connor” also served us that Declan’s team was always super quick to respond to questions and consistent (without being pushy) in making certain we were getting our eyes on all critical documents. As you can tell……we are very, very happy with our experience. I’ll leave you with this last thought. To go from NEVER having visited the Portland RE market to closing on a high-er value home in just 30 days……well I think that tells the story. What do you think?

Thank you so much! I want to express my appreciation to you and Team O'Connor for making all of this work out. I could not be happier!
