Jean is the realtor everyone wishes they had. She uses her academic knowledge (a Ph.D. in history) and her life experiences as a native Oregonian, to help her clients successfully buy and sell their properties.
In our case, her advice helped us price our property resulting in an offer of almost $50K above asking. And it sold in 5 days.
We had also decided to sell our house before looking for a new one in the area we wanted to move. This was so we could offer cash for the purchase in a very competitive market.
Jean helped us find a house in three days, and we closed on our new home less that a week after selling our old house. Timing can be everything. Her guidance along the way kept us on track and brought us success. She was with us at every step and kept up well informed along the way.
We were surprised at the time and effort she put forth for us, and overwhelmed at her availability and generosity of her many resources. She is smart, ethical, insightful and hard working. She'll be your good friend at the end of your adventure, as she is ours!

I found Jean Johnson to be the perfect realtor—a great sounding board who has an eye for potential problems and possibilities—who is not pushy and has a great sense of when you'd like feedback and when you'd just like to be quiet and look and think.
Jean truly does place her clients’ interests above her own. She is committed to conducting her real estate business in an ethical manner—and it shows.
Jean is also a native Portlander who really knows the city and its neighborhoods. More, she is not your typical realtor—she has a PhD in history, is a critical thinker (and hence a formidable negotiator!), a great communicator, and she knows how to research properties.
Jean rescued me on several occasions from making bad decisions, and she went to bat for me when a seller tried to disguise a cloudy title, saving me considerable funds. She more than earns her commission—I had no idea how hard a truly dedicated realtor works!
Jean Johnson goes above and beyond what I have ever experienced or might have expected from a realtor, and I have purchased (and sold) a half dozen houses in the last thirty years. Highly recommended! Definitely five-star caliber!

I have found Jean to be one of the most caring Realtors I've had the pleasure of being associated with.
Her attention to detail is amazing and she always goes the extra mile to make sure that her clients are well cared for.
Being a Portland native she has a thorough knowledge of the neighborhoods which is so valuable to newcomers to Portland.
I recommend Jean for any and all real estate needs in the Portland area. You won't be sorry!
