Q: I’m on the fence about moving to Portland, but there have been so many articles highlighting the city lately that I might be ready to take the plunge. What resources do you offer when it comes to relocation?

A: Portland is the best place on earth; at least in my opinion! We are close to the ocean, Mt. Hood, and endless acres of forests for those who like the outdoors. We have an extensive public transportation system, we demand sustainability,? we respect recycling and we are fiercely independent.

The Pacific Northwest has a feeling that pulls you in. Ever since the Oregon Trail, people have been moving out west and those numbers are only growing.

Now that I have only helped to entice you further, how can I help you in your moving process? Well, for starters, The Hasson Company has an extensive relocation department which is a member of the Leading Real Estate Companies of the World. This enables us to network across the United States. We will be able to communicate with agents in your area to help get your home efficiently on the market while getting you over here at the same time. Leading Real Estate Companies of the World has nearly 700 affiliates with 5,500 offices. We can help you from wherever you are.

Once you arrive here in Portland we offer connections to relocation counseling to assist you during your move, access to comprehensive school information, neighborhood tours of the area to help perfectly align you with the exact place you will want to live, cost of living comparisons to help budget, temporary housing for that in-between time, and much more. I personally have lived in over 20 U.S. cities and towns in my life and know the ordeal. You want someone with the experience and connections to sort through things like the best movers, who to use for remodeling, and just where to find the best happy hours. A good agent should be able to help you with everything from the big questions to the small questions.

We have a fun new video of Portland posted at hasson.com/travelportland for one last reason to push you over the edge, and then you can decide if you would like to take advantage of all we have to offer.
