Nothing can be more important than choosing where you will live and, in some cases, how you will go about making your largest financial decision. You deserve any advantage you can gain.
I have been a full time Realtor in Portland serving the close in urban neighborhoods since 1990 and I promise to give you my honest opinion, help put things in perspective, maintain a calm and professional manner, and when necessary, inject a little humor into the situation.
I believe in using high tech and high touch methods to make sure you gain an edge on the competition while engaging my 25+ years of relationships to seal the deal.

"Chris Bonner immediately earned our trust by being respectfully honest throughout the whole process. She was our buying agent for our second home. During inspections, she was not afraid to go into crawl spaces and note any concerns she saw. She provided great feedback whenever we discussed renovations while touring homes. If we toured homes at the top of our budget, she was good at keeping us from getting too carried away. She and her team were very responsive throughout the buying process, all the way through closing. Her 27 years of experience allowed her to tell us how urgent we had to be to make an offer. During the negotiation period, she provided a good gauge on reasonable requests. We recommend her in a heartbeat."
"I can't see why anyone would use a realtor other than Chris Bonner. I went from knowing nothing about home-buying to feeling very well informed in a matter of months. Chris has encyclopedic knowledge of Portland, an innate instinct about houses, and a keen perception of peoples' needs. She steered me clear of disasters and managed to maneuver a short sale in record time and with an unheard of lack of issues. I absolutely felt that I was in the best hands.
She's also a darn good person. Here's what Google just told me about her: The Portland Metropolitan Association of Realtors named her the 2011 Realtor Good Neighbor for her work with the local non-profit JOIN, which helps homeless individuals transition into permanent housing. She's also a founding member of Housing Our Families and worked with them for eight years to help provide affordable housing to low-income families. She also served on the City of Portland Advisory Committee on Affordable Housing and has taught homebuying classes for the Portland Housing Center."
