Since we had a number of great experiences with Ridge over the past 9 months (culminating in an awesome home-buying experience), it only seems right that we share our thoughts on Yelp as well. First off, Ridge really listened to us. He heard what we were looking for, and kept his eyes open for things that met our criteria. He never tried to push anything on us (be it houses that didn't meet our criteria, or areas that we specifically indicated that we weren't interested in), but was open to walk us through anything we asked (even if he knew we'd end up not interested after seeing it). Second, Ridge knows the Portland area well, and his recommendations were always welcome (e.g. a good inspector, a good title company). Finally, Ridge has a positive, upbeat personality. Despite weekend after weekend of driving my wife and me around to look at countless houses (almost all of which we ended up not liking), he always met us with a smile and a sense of professionalism. He has a good sense of humor, and is also genuine and thoughtful. Overall, we would definitely recommend working with Ridge if you're looking to buy a home in the Portland area!
