About Us

 

Brian Bellairs and Matt Gorman have a simple business objective: to provide their West Portland real estate clients with the best possible service. Brian and Matt have over 40 years of combined real estate experience and have been among the Portland metropolitan area’s top-selling real estate teams for over two decades; but it is their focus, philosophy and expertise that set them apart.

The Portland real estate market, in reality, is comprised of many unique real estate markets. Just like a Realtor could not specialize in marketing the entire United States, Brian and Matt believe that true expertise requires detailed focus on a limited number of specific markets within the Portland area. To that end, they are acknowledged West Portland real estate specialists, closing over 2000 transactions in West Portland. Brian and Matt have also closed nearly 15 times more transactions in the Murrayhill area than the next leading Realtor over the past 25+ years.

Brian and Matt strive to provide the highest value possible to real estate clients through their in-depth knowledge of their market and their unwavering belief that the manner in which you do business is more important than the amount of business you do.
