"Brian and Andrew recommended that we price an Alameda Craftsman that I was remodeling at a higher price than what I was expecting to sell it for. We ended up selling the home for full price within the first week on the market. We plan on listing our current Alameda remodel with them in the spring of 2014."
Brian Pienovi has been my Realtor for over 35 years. He helped my wife and I sell our first home and purchase our current home. He has assisted in the purchase and sale of many investment properties for us, too. Brian has the uncanny ability to recognize trends in the overall market and has keen insight into niche markets, as well. His local knowledge of Portland's neighborhoods is dominant. He is a master negotiator and seems to always leave the buyer and seller feeling better after a negotiation than before it. I trust and respect Brian. He has never put his needs ahead of our relationship for the sake of a commission. I believe that is one of the main reasons he has been a respected real estate salesperson for all of these years. He is well connected with other agents as well as lenders, real estate attorneys, appraisers, title insurance companies, etc. I highly recommend Brian for your real estate needs.
As first-time home buyers, the entire process was new an unfamiliar to us, but Andrew and the Pienovi Properties were very patient and helpful from beginning to end. Their deep knowledge of the local market gave us a big advantage in the bidding process, and their network of inspectors and contractors helped us maximize costs covered by the sellers. I've already recommend the Pienovi Properties team to friends looking to buy or sell in the Portland area.
Andrew Pienovi did an incredible job at finding us our perfect home. He was honest during the process advising us in what he thought were appropriately priced homes that met our needs. He worked tirelessly to accommodate our work schedule and in the end we got the house we wanted in the neighborhood we wanted and it appraised for $20,000 more than what we bought it for! I recommend him and everyone at Pienovi Properties to all my friends and family.
Andrew Pienovi helped us buy not one home but TWO in a nine month period. We weren't even really looking, were living in our first home and had been in it for 10+ yrs. We made an unrepresented offer on a house up the street he was representing to live in while renovating our home. His personal attention, attention to details, willingness to negotiate and integrity throughout the process was so impressive...we worked with him and bought another home nine months later! His knowledgable suggestions during that process got us into a stunning home, below ask, only shown to three potential buyers. The greatest testimonial to his skill: His suggestions were so effective...we weren't even the highest bid. Andrew made the process so seamless and personal that it was another six months before we stopped looking at real estate (and truth be told, we still peek).
