Aaron's Testimonials

Aaron was incredibly diligent, patient and generous throughout our whole search. We sincerely enjoyed working with him. His assistance turned a stressful process into an exciting one. Thank you so much Aaron, for helping us find such a wonderful home!

My boyfriend and I had an excellent experience with Aaron at Living Room Realty. . We were originally trying to find a rental property online, on our own, but were having an extremely difficult time finding a place that met all our qualifications.  And we were running out of time, with only a couple days before our scheduled flight out to Portland.  We called Aaron and he was able to find us a beautiful, dog friendly house with a yard, in a lovely neighborhood close to everything we wanted, for a better price than we could have imagined!  He was very professional, listened to our needs, and worked quickly with the limited time we gave him.  Since Aaron knew we were new to town, he also showed us properties in multiple areas of town, so we could get a feel for the different neighborhoods.  He even recommended a couple great restaurants to try while we were there!  Prior to this experience, I never thought it was worth it to go through a realtor to find a rental property, but now I highly recommend it.  Aaron took the stress out of our situation and made our first experience in Portland a great one!  We definitely plan on working with him again in the future, for all our renting/buying/selling needs.


My spouse and I would not have our current apartment in Portland, Oregon if it wasn’t for Aaron at Living Room Realty. Aaron managed to give us an honest appraisal of the apartment and the type of people hired as property managers, along with sending us some photos and detailed descriptions of the building and the quality of care taken to upkeep the property as well as the unit that interested us.  Since the apartment was only available for walk-in/by-appointment renters in Portland, it was VITAL to have Aaron on the ground and in person to build a relationship with our prospective landlords and secure us the unit by being the 1st-in-line to view the listing prior to the Open House renters seeing the apartment. I highly recommend using a relocation specialist when moving to Portland, Oregon and would certainly recommend Aaron Hartman at Living Room Realty to anyone I know moving to the city sight-unseen.
