With over ten years of experience in the Portland area real estate market, the focus of Windermere Stellar Blake Ellis is being a trusted professional for all things real estate. He is determined to educate his clients throughout the entire process of selling or buying, so they are in the best position to make confident decisions with tangible results.
He has a distinct level of knowledge of Portland’s market and is keenly aware of the mechanics of urban Portland real estate.
When John Jacobi founded Windermere Real Estate in 1972, he had a vision for the way real estate should work: anticipate and respond to the needs of buyers and sellers, and support the communities you serve. While other real estate companies were focused on size and sales, his goal was to earn the respect of the communities where he and his agents worked and lived. Four decades later, John Jacobi’s humble beginnings have gone from a single office with eight agents to a network of 300 offices and more than 7,000 agents throughout the Western United States.
\r\nFor every home that is bought or sold through Windermere, the Windermere Foundation donates a portion of the proceeds towards supporting low-income and homeless families in our communities. What started in 1989 as a grassroots foundation serving Seattle-area families in need, has grown to encompass ten states and has raised more than $24 million for programs and organizations that provide shelter, clothing, children’s programs, emergency assistance, and other services to those who need our help most.
