"Javier is amazing: responsive, brilliant, creative, aggressive when necessary, always friendly, gracious and understanding"
Javier is amazing: responsive, brilliant, creative, aggressive when necessary, always friendly, gracious and understanding. He sees the whole picture immediately, considers all the details quickly and delights in solving problems. He made me feel like I was his only client. I saw my house online during our first snowpocalypse this winter and he was perfectly happy to take me to see it despite the weather. We made an offer the next day and it was accepted. There were several interesting angles to the deal which would have been roadblocks to a less nimble mind. Javier came up with ways to handle all of the issues to both my satisfaction and the sellers'. He's got an excellent working relationship with an equally stellar broker, Jeff Naylor, which made the deal possible. He and Jeff worked beautifully together to make it all happen. I am grateful, delighted and highly recommend Javier!
"It was an absolutely seamless transaction."
Highly recommended! We worked together to find the perfect house for me, and I put my full faith and trust behind Javier, who I knew would get the job done. It was an absolutely seamless transaction. Purchasing a home in Portland can be a daunting task, but Javier was right there for all preparations and issues. Given the market demands in this area, you need someone who is ready to assist at a moments notice, put the paperwork together quickly, and execute on your dream to make it a reality. Javier is right there with you and I felt completely comfortable and well educated throughout the entire process. Thank you so much
"I couldn't have made a better choice."
It was an incredible experience working with Javier Alomia. I couldn't have made a better choice. After only 2 weeks of looking in this crazy market I found the house I wanted and on my first offer submission I got an accepted offer! Most of my family and friends told me not to get my hopes up on getting an accepted offer especially on my first or, try, but I had every confidence with Javier by my side. Been in my place for 5 months and enjoying every minute, Thank you Javier for getting this girl her first home! Blessings to you and yours. Eternally greatful
"His method of advertising and open house got many people in the door day one."
Javier was great...twice. He helped us on the purchase of our home. Prompt and quick service. He recently helped sell said home and again did a great job. His method of advertising and open house got many people in the door day one. He helped with the close out of our renters' tenancy. His communication is timely and accessible via phone, text or email. He wasn't pushy or saleszy like MANY others and didn't waste our time. Great service and highly recommended.

"Javier is profesional and knowledgeable without putting pressure on his clients "
Javier was recommended to us by friends and we were not disappointed. We were first-time home buyers and compared to the experience of many of our friends and family, our buying process was painless and relatively simple. I believe this is because we began with the right agent. Javier is professional and knowledgeable without putting pressure on his clients. Furthermore, we were out-of-town buyers and he was more than willing to accommodate our tight schedule. My husband an I really can't thank Javier enough for all his help in buying our home.

"The entire experience was great but if I was to point to one extraordinary skill it was negotiations "
My wife and I started looking for a home after 5 years of living in NW. We were very picky and kept on changing our mind on what we were looking for. Javier was 100% understanding and helpful during the whole ride. He was very genuine and vocal about any concerns or recommendations when look at homes. The entire experience was great but if I was to point to one extraordinary skill it was negotiations. We got to the number we wanted in a high demand neighborhood and desired timeline. A+

"We were first time home buyers and he made the process so much easier for us "
Javier was amazing to work with! We were first time home buyers and he made the process so much easier for us. He was very quick to respond to any questions or concerns we had during the process. He also worked hard to negotiate for us as the buyers in a sellers market. We'll definitely recommend Javier to any acquaintances buying or selling in the future. We love our home and we're so glad Javier helped us get there!

"Javier was AMAZING! He sold my house in 4 days after it went on the market. He was able to get the buyers to compete with each other so I was able to get $30,000.00 more than I was asking for my house!"
My house was about 35 minutes from Portland. I knew I wanted to go with Remax because they had a wide range of advertising base and power. I chose Javier because he was located in Portland and because he knows Spanish. I chose him because I knew my house was not prime property. He knows Spanish; so I figured he would have a larger market base in which to advertise. Javier was AMAZING! He sold my house in 4 days after it went on the market. He was able to get the buyers to compete with each other so I was able to get $30,000.00 more than I was asking for my house! What I found interesting was he was able to make it all look easy. Plus, he chose an Escrow company that completed the paper work very quickly. Javiar is emotionally supportive in a scary situation. He answered all of my questions and supported me when I needed the emotional support.He went WAY beyond what most Realtors would do. If you want your house to sell...choose Javiar! Amazing person; amazing results. You will not be disappointed!Persona maravillosa; resultados sorprendentes. Usted no será decepcionado!
"Javier continues to be my go-to expert and I know I can always count on him to have my back."
I had the pleasure of meeting Javier at the Portland Housing Center’s HOME BUYING 101 Class that he frequently volunteers his expertise at many years ago. I was impressed by the way he made the intimidating world of First Time Homeownership a realistic and obtainable goal for me, not to mention his down to Earth approach that lead me to ask him to be my personal Realtor on this journey. The criteria of finding my first home was pretty specific and Javier gave me the freedom to move at my own pace deciding on what direction I wanted to move forward on for years. After some time of countless weekly property listings I finally was ready to see my first house and of course feel in love with the first house I visited!Javier being the ultimate professional gave me his frank opinion and acted as a true friend to ask the hard questions to make sure I was ultimately ready to make the big purchase after seeing just the one house! He even went so far to help me draft a personal letter to the seller’s to ensure to them I was the right buyer for their house…and we succeeded, the house is mine! He did a tremendous job recommending skilled professionals to help me through the loan approval, inspection and repair processes and I know I can always reach out to him for recommendations to this day. Since my First Time Home buying journey has ended, we continue to have a friendship and when I get crazy ideas like trying to sell my house to my jobless nephew, he’s mentored me through the ups and downs of trying to sell a house on my own.Javier continues to be my go-to expert and I know I can always count on him to have my back, the knowledge of the industry, and how to guide me in my future endeavors.
"He is firm but not aggressive, fast-paced but doesn't rush where important decisions and focus are required."
Javier is very articulate, thorough and communicative. He listens to concerns and hopes in the home buying process and provides honest and accurate answers to questions and issues that arise. Javier is also very personable and relatable, projecting a friendly and relaxed attitude while working as hard as possible to get a great outcome for his clients. He is firm but not aggressive, fast-paced but doesn't rush where important decisions and focus are required. Talk with Javier if you are just beginning to think about buying a house. He will be a pleasure to work with and someone you will want to refer to others.
"He wasn't worried about selling me a house but about finding the right home for me."
Javier not only helped me find my first home but he also educated me in the process of home buying, comparing the best deals in mortgages, insurance, etc. Being a foreign born professional the process seemed very cumbersome and confusing but he was very patient and understanding. He went above and beyond during this lengthy process, always trying to find the best deal for me. We saw dozens of properties and he was always very honest and unbiased about their potential, i.e. he wasn't worried about selling me a house but about finding the right home for me. I'd absolutely recommend Javier to my friends.
"He genuinely wanted to find the home that was right for us."
Javier Alomia helped me and my husband find our first home and we absolutely love it! Overall he was incredibly helpful and respectful. The following things really stick out in my mind... Javier respected our price range, he didn't try to push us into something too big or expensive, he genuinely wanted to help us find a home that was perfect for us. Javier is familiar with the Portland area, he would share quite a bit about the neighborhoods we were looking in. Javier is an easy going person - we never felt awkward asking "first-time buyer" questions and he always gave us clear responses. Definitely the most important thing about our experience with Javier is that he genuinely wanted to find the home that was right for us. At the end of a long day, there is nothing better than coming home.We are grateful that Javier helped us find the house that we call home.

"Hands down he is the best."
Truly someone to have on your home buying team. His expertise made buying our first home easy, less daunting and he truly understood what we were looking for. Before we met with him we had 4 homes that we wanted to see. The first time we met with him a few days later, he was able to get us in all of the homes that same weekend. We put an offer on one of the homes that coming Monday. He was more than happy to keep up with our fast pace of finding a home and putting in an offer. He answers emails very quickly and keeps you posted often. He also uses an online signing document process that really comes in handy when a couple like us is always out and about. We were able to sign offer documents on our i-phones! His experience helped us know what to ask for in our first house and how to negotiate on the price. Hands down he is the best.

"We couldn't have asked for a more skilled, tactful, responsive, and professional Realtor."
Javier recently helped my husband & I purchase our home. He's knowledgeable about Portland, and knows the diverse neighborhoods well. He's also an active listener. When we expressed our needs (and we had a LOT), he was skilled at recommending homes & neighborhoods that met those needs. Working with Javier marked the beginning of our sensible decisions in our home buying process! We couldn't have asked for a more skilled, tactful, responsive, and professional Realtor. He got us into our dream home, in a great neighborhood, and at the perfect price.
