Debbie is amazing to work with. She truly cares about her clients and helping them find the right house no matter how long that may take. She's knowledgeable, patient and a great advocate for her buyers. My two boys and I couldn't be happier with the home we purchased in Newberg. Thank you Debbie for making this possible.

Home and property owner

A new property development has been in the design and permitting phase for several years and Debbie has done a remarkable job of keeping us informed about the process when the new lots would be available for sale. Within a week of the lots going on sale, our transaction was complete because of Debbie's diligence. Thank you, Debbie, for your follow through! View More Info at

Family Care Manager

The home purchase process couldn’t have run any smoother. Thanks to Carissa, we met our goal deadline to closing and were able to view homes in all parts of Portland before reaching a confident decision with the home we purchased. She was knowledgeable, communicated very well, and was able to work through stressful financial decisions with my wife and I. In addition, she was in tune with features we desired in our home and kept our interests in mind every step of the way. View More Info at

I am writing this letter of reference / recommendation in behalf of Kasia Trammell. She has been our agent for over 3 years now... We were introduced to her by our daughter and son-in-law, who have known and been working with her for a number of years. So we have both professional and personal history with her.
It is our most sincere referral that if anyone would have need of her professional services, in both buying and selling commercial or residential property that we would share the highest rating of service.

She actively seeks and stays informed with the most recent and updated changes in her profession. She is open minded and works exceptionally well with other agents in resolving and seeking solutions as to whatever is in the best interest of the clients.

Kasia was our realtor when we were buying our first home. She spent a lot of time showing us homes as we were not sure which neighborhood and what type of house we wanted. Always professional and very knowledgeable, helped us get our dream home. She is very hard working and energetic person who is very fun to work with. I would recommend her services to anyone who is looking for a new house or selling. View More Info at

Stephanie Bowers recommends Kasia Trammell

Moving home to Oregon after being away for almost 40 years was scary. Everything had changed, whole neighborhoods were radically different. We had one mission, find our "forever" home. Kasia made it all possible for us, even going 2 hours away to other possible cities in hopes of finding the perfect place. We have bought 6 homes previously and she made this one the easiest, specifically because of her personality and knowledge. We live in our dream home now and are forever greatful for her skill as an agent, talent as a designer and the comfortable ease of her personality.

Thank you Kasia for everything, we are happy here in our new home View More Info at

Highly recommend her if you are first time home buyer, investor or looking into listing your home she will add her magic touch to make your property shine!

Brigit Englund recommends Carissa Hill

Service Industry Empath

Carissa is a rare form of human. She is genuine, down to Earth, passionate, headstrong, and kind to her core. What sets her apart is her constant fight for more light and happiness in this world, and for any lucky person in her immediate surroundings. Carissa is the type of person that will take time out of her busy schedule to sit down and write kind notes to send people in the mail, in hopes of just brightening their day a little bit. Everything she does is a well-calculated balance of deep care, fairness, resolution, sense, sparkle, warmth, pragmatism, and hard work. I've had the opportunity to work with her on numerous projects, including some very stressful workplace situations. Carissa never loses her cool, she fights for what's right, she doesn't break the rules, and she has a natural talent for fitting random information into perfect placement. She's a perfect fit for the Real Estate industry, because she will commit herself wholeheartedly to finding the perfect fit. Your home is your sanctuary. You can trust Carissa to do what's best for you, on the buying end, the selling end, and anywhere in between. She's a dream of a realtor. View More Info at

Emily recommends Carissa Hill


Carissa Hill is by far the most dedicated, hard working, and self driven person I know. She lets NOTHING stop her. We worked together in Alaska when she landed a pretty cool job in a café in Whittier and was able to get me on to the crew too. She worked the hardest and was always one step ahead of me all day. The owners called her The Silent Shadow because she moved and completed taskes so fast you wouldn't even see her do them. For 12 to 13 hours a day, sometimes 7 days a week, smiling the whole time. To this day (almost 6 years later) I still think about how good her work ethic was and strive to be as good. She's adventurous as well as grounded. Hard working and goal driven. Strong and independent. She's just all around a wonderful person. And she will put 100 percent into her job every time. View More Info at

Debbie met me in person at the house right after I decided to sell. She was very hands on from the first day. Debbie gave me confidence with my possibilities and has fostered friendships with a never ending community of contractors, and other people in the field that made my transition smooth. This was a serious transition in my life, not just a house sale. Beyond any expectations, she assured me not to worry about anything, and her team would handle it all. And they did. The house was pending sale at first open house. I am in the service industry and have been for a couple of decades; hers was impeccable. Go to no one else! View More Info at

Buyers / Sellers

What a great deal Kasia negotiated for us! After an almost a year-long
search, we finally found our dream home. There was only one problem -the
price was beyond our budget. We almost gave up hopes of buying that house.
Another agent might said forget it and moved on, but not Kasia! She
found the weak point of the property, and skillfully pointed them out to
the seller. After some high-rising negotiations we got a deal we could not
imagine few weeks earlier. With the help of Kasia we got Audi at the price
of a Chevy! Congrats Kasia, that's the way to do it! View More Info at

Amy Mueller recommends Debbie Rainforth

A friend of mine referred me to Debbie to list our house. I am so happy I followed that recommendation. She took her role seriously by talking about our home before it was even listed to begin generating interest. Because of her background of previously being a loan officer, she was able to guide us through the process and any potential items that would delay our closing were resolved before it ever became an issue. Being out-of-state while selling a home can be overwhelming, but Debbie kept a watchful eye on our house which relived my concern. She is on top of the current market, so her pricing suggestions come backed up by examples and details. I highly recommend Debbie. View More Info at

Debbie was incredible, we encountered her through another realtor and what a difference one person makes!
My husband and I had been trying to purchase a home in the process of being foreclosed and what a buyers nightmare! For five years we pursued this property and got nothing but a run around! Finance company to finance company, person to person! I just wanted to quit!! My husband wouldn't give up and finally we encountered Debbie, yeah!! She completely untangled all the obstacles walked us through the whole process one step at a time and in very short order we had our new home! And we love it!
Debbie, was more than a realtor she became a very good friend and we still keep in touch! A wonderful person to work with!!

Debbie assisted me with purchasing land to build my new home, and I couldn't have asked for a better and more supportive person to go on this journey. I made many inquiries on different properties before finding the property I ultimately purchased and she assisted me with each property inquiry without hesitation and helped me make the best decision for my needs. Being a single parent, this was a huge step for me to take but Debbie was there for me through the entire process, including offering assistance in dealing with the local city government agencies. She is incredibly knowledgeable, goes above and beyond to get questions answered and is one of the most professional and personable people I've met. I would, without any hesitation, recommend Debbie to anyone. View More Info at

She was very helpful in determining which listings were worthwhile properties, which saved us a lot of time. She was honest and upfront with information and very committed to getting us into a home that was right for us. She was reliable and in communication frequently with updates when necessary. Her knowledge and experience allowed us opportunities to bounce ideas off of her (in terms of areas we liked, features we were looking for in a home, etc). Our experience with her was positive and we will DEFINITELY use her again. View More Info at

Unknown recommends Debbie Rainforth

We were referred to Debbie after putting our home on the market several times with different agents and no offers. We had taken a risk and moved out of our house in hopes of it selling quickly with our previous agent. Debbie understood our situation and worked very hard to help us in the near term by recommending a short sale. Through this process, she kept us in the loop and was always available when we had questions which made us feel confident in a pretty stressful situation.

Ultimately, the short sale was not approved so we listed with Debbie again and we had an offer right away. I attribute this to Debbie being very proactive and actually "selling" our house to potential buyers and agents. All told, she worked with us for a good few months and always made us feel that selling our house - and our best interests - were a top priority.

My husband John and I had the pleasure of doing business with Debbie. We had been through a handful of other agents that didn't meet our standards and we ended up in a bad spot. Debbie helped up start the process for a short sale on our home. She was extremely easy to communicate with and kept us updated with what was going on. She also bent over backwards to make sure the whole process was easy for us. We got denied for the short sale and Debbie listed our house as a regular sale. Shortly after that, we got a full price offer! My husband and I received the best Christmas present possible, the sale of our home! Debbie stuck with us through the mounds of paper and stress of possible short sale. I recommend Debbie to anyone that wants an agent that WORKS! We are so thankful to Debbie and her diligence to get our house sold. View More Info at

She was always available, even on weekends and did whatever she possibly could to not only keep me informed throughout every step of the process but did whatever she could to get my short-sale completed. She absolutely went above and beyond in every way possible! If you are in a situation where you need to short-sale, do yourself a favor and get Debbie involved. It will be one of the best choices you can make and you certainly let your friends and family know that if they are in the same situation to call Debbie as well!

Kasia was our Realtor for our first home that we purchased in May of 2010.
As a new homebuyers, we had more questions than answers as we tired to
navigate the home buying process. Kasia was able to take our questions and
use her experience and knowledge of the marketplace to provide information
and guidance that ultimately lead to our first home purchase. I still
remember walking into what is now our home, looking at my wife and we both
said This is perfect! We loved working with Kasia and will do again when
