Licensed Managing Broker in Washington
Licensed Principal Broker in Oregon
My name is Corey Eubanks, a managing broker in Washington and principal broker in Oregon, serving the greater Portland-Vancouver metro area…and sometimes beyond. I am focused on professional guidance with jaw-dropping customer service for people making transitions in their lives: moving to the area, buying a first home, selling a home and upsizing, selling a home and downsizing, investing. Life happens, and I'm here to help you on the home front.
Customer service is my mantra and guiding principle. At each step in the process, I always lead with the query “What can I do to make this transaction as smooth and beneficial for my valuable client?” I do this with proactive communication, open dialogue, effective negotiations, simple language for complicated concepts, and outside-the-box thinking for unique situations.
So, check out the blog, look at some listings, let me know what questions you have and let's get started. You can even set up a search profile and save your favorite homes.

Analyze why you are selling - If you understand your motives, you will be able to better negotiate and to get what it is that you want, whether it be a quick sale, high price, or somewhere in the middle.
Prepare your home for the buyer - Maximize the strengths of your property and fix up its weaknesses. You want the buyer to walk away from your home with a lasting good impression.
Find a good real estate agent that understands your needs - Make sure that your agent is loyal to you, and can negotiate to help you achieve your goals. In addition, they should be assertive and honest with both you and the buyer.
Be prepared for negotiation - Learn and understand your buyer’s situation; what are their motives? Can you demand a big deposit from them? Try to lock in the buyer so that the deal goes through.
Negotiate for the best price and the best terms - Learn how to counter offer to get maximum value from every offer.
Make sure the contract is accurate and complete - Be honest with your disclosures; you do not want to lose the deal because you were lying or diminishing your home’s defects. Insist the buyers get a professional inspection. This will protect both you and the buyer.
