I would recommend Carrie Gross to anyone looking to find a professional, intelligent, educated and dedicated agent. We found Carrie through a friend and we couldn't have been better served. She is very communicative, thorough and incredibly patient. We are relocating to Portland and she worked with our tight timelines without blinking. As first time homebuyers, she walked us through the process and we felt well informed about all of our decisions. She went to bat for us in getting the repairs needed for our new home and negotiated a price that worked for our budget. Her entire team is fantastic too. Her sister and partner Christy came to our tours which was awesome. Shannon who handles so much behind the scenes was also superb. We always felt informed of what was happening and when things needed to get done. Thanks so much! We can't wait to move into our dream home.
Christy MacColl of Realty Trust in Portland, Oregon is one of the rare gems one enters in life. Being a residential real estate broker, even in goods times, is at best difficult. Christy represented us the sale of our second home condo in The Pearl District. We were rarely in Portland during the process. Christy handled all the showings and related issues professionally and seamlessly. We used the moving company she recommended and the consignment store she suggested as well. If Christy could not be involved for a day or two, her associate Carrie Gross filed in graciously . I have developed commercial real estate all my life and admit to be a little testy in real estate transactions. Christy never got flustered or distracted. She helped us sell our condo in five days within one percent of the asking price. All in all, if we purchase another property in Portland, Christy will represent us.

Carrie and Christy helped us find our home this year and we highly recommend working with them! We moved from out of state and they went above and beyond to help us narrow down neighborhoods and figure out what we were looking for. The whole team worked with our limited schedule and did an amazing job guiding us through the process of a home. They were friendly, professional and we can't thank them enough!

I worked with Alex Sand and Carrie Gross at Realty Trust and could not have been happier with the experience. We were in a VERY competitive price point which resulted in DOZENS of showings and approximately 10 offers written. Alex and Carrie were always positive and upbeat throughout the process, kept us informed about new listings and were very generous with their time (late evenings and weekends) to try and get us in to new listings quickly before other offers were submitted. They also communicated well with our mortgage broker, Bill Dolan at Guild Mortgage. What really sealed the deal for me was after our 8th or 9th rejection, I reached out to Alex and Carrie and told them that perhaps were should just hang it up. They reached out to other agents within their network and were able to find another agent within their group that had a listing coming on the market that was EXACTLY what we were looking for. They wrote a super competitive offer, drafted a letter to the seller - and despite being the lowest offer of 7, we got our offer accepted! I know we were not a "high dollar" client for them, but we never felt unimportant. My wife and I always felt like they genuinely cared about finding us a great home and making sure we were happy - we never felt pressured to offer on a house we didn't like or anything. It is for that reason that I will never go to anyone else in the future!

Carrie and her team are amazing to work with. Carrie is extremely dedicated to her job and her clients. Her and her team, in the last year, purchased two homes and sold two homes for me. I have never worked with a realtor that is more responsive, and I always felt like she was one step ahead at all times looking out for my needs and wants. Also, they have a great team of assistants that manage the timetables for the purchase and sale so that I was never wondering where I was at in the process. I will use them for all of my real estate needs. Carrie and her team are also the nicest and most energetic group of realtors that I know, it is a joy to work with them.

Carrie is the best realtor I have ever worked with! Her and her team are amazing. They are very experienced and super responsive. She has excellent negotiation skills and helped us get the seller to pay for new paint and windows. She is prompt, professional, and courteous. She has helped us with the purchase of two homes and the sale of another.

Carrie is absolutely phenomenal. I found her at random and am so happy I did. She was attentive, knowledgeable, patient, and honest. She helped steer me towards neighborhoods I might like and had the knowledge of Portland to help temper some of my internet based enthusiasm. She made my long range purchase a breeze and I will 100% be working with her again for my next real estate transaction in Portland.

Christy and her team were a delight to deal with. She is professional, prompt, knowledgeable, responsive and cheerful. Most important, she is optimistic and encouraging when faced with any difficulty or challenge. She works tirelessly to make things right. I will recommend her highly to anyone asking, and will hire her again whenever I have the need.

Working with Christy was an absolute joy from the beginning to the end of my home sale process. We never even had to list my house, as within a day of my meeting her, Christy had a full-price offer come in through her well-placed connections. She took in stride a seemingly endless stream of obstacles and overcame them all, largely through her own intelligence, diligence and hard work. Christy was unfailingly cheerful and a pleasure to work with throughout what became a challenging ordeal. I was truly impressed and amazed by her and will be forever grateful. She’s the best the profession could offer, and I can’t recommend her highly enough.
