Your new home awaits

Portland is not just rainy days; it’s a lifestyle. Experience the close-in neighborhoods with amenities like eclectic shopping, cultural events, bike lanes, and convenience to downtown. Are you a foodie? Portland abounds with great restaurants, cafes and food carts.

A home is the key to establishing roots and building community. I specialize in selling close-in older homes with architectural significance in diverse neighborhoods like Hawthorne, Mt. Tabor and Alberta Arts to name a few. If you prefer downsizing or condo living, the Pearl District is a great place to check out.

For buyers, I help you determine your wants and needs and hit the pavement.  My expertise in all aspects of real estate sales keeps a stressful and complicated process at a minimum. Great service is what I pride myself on and a satisfied client is the best source of referrals and repeat business.

I’ve been a realtor for over 23 years and live in the Richmond neighborhood. I relocated to Portland in 1990, and as a transplant, love to “show off” the city and its many neighborhoods. My previous career as a TV journalist included CNN in Atlanta, Fisher Broadcasting in Washington, D.C., and KATU-TV in Portland.

Buying or selling a home can be an incredibly stressful experience. But not with Jane Swanson guiding you along the journey. I have bought and sold homes with Jane six times over the past 20 years in all four quadrants of Portland and wouldn't think of using anyone else. She is the best on all fronts - knowledgeable, responsive, timely, trustworthy and - well - a lot of fun! She is a straight shooter who will tell you exactly what you need to do to get the home you love or sell the one you're ready to leave for the best price. I have recommended Jane to several friends, and every one has echoed that working with her was the best real estate experience they have ever had.  -- Katie T.

Jane has worked with me since 2006. She has helped me purchase (2) homes in SE Portland and sell a home in SE Portland. Jane is fantastic when it comes to evaluating homes before selling (the dreaded punch list!) and finding houses in SE Portland's competitive market. Jane's experience and connections are what is needed to make the transaction happen! Oh, did I mention she is also friendly, funny, and professional? Top notch all-around. -- Shawn D.

Jane is a consummate professional. She has helped us purchase and sell 2 homes. When it was time to sell our most current Portland home, for an overseas opportunity, we immediately reached out to Jane. We would highly recommend having Jane as your advocate during the purchasing or selling process. She is responsive to inquiries and checks in often along the way. Jane was always available (well beyond what I would be willing to do), and answered all of our questions. And, we ask a lot of questions. Her genuineness comes through. Also, she has a wonderful sense of humor. -- John M.
