My partner and I just bought a house and we were lucky enough to have Megan help us through the process. Megan really made our home buying experience as enjoyable and stress-free as we could hope for with her wealth of knowledge and excellent communication. Megan knows her stuff and I highly recommend her! Thanks Megan!

Megan was fantastic through the whole transaction, even when dealing with not very professional people on the other side. She took it all in stride and fought for us during the whole process. She is a kind and hard-working individual that I would recommend and use again in future purchases.

Megan’s wealth of knowledge concerning market trends, her ability to pinpoint listings aligning with our particular preferences, and her genuine demeanor made buying our first home a stress-free and enjoyable experience. Once our offer was accepted, her attention to detail and organization was paramount. Megan provided us with a timeline of important events which kept us on track towards the closing date, and she was always available with seemingly instantaneous responses. She made us feel so comfortable reaching out to her with any additional questions regarding the sale, which was especially reassuring as we were all adjusting to the new norms presented by COVID-19. We never dreamed buying our first home especially during a pandemic would be this smooth, and that is 100% because of Megan’s commitment to excellence.

My wife and I just sold our Portland condo through Megan Banta, and we could not be more pleased with her performance. Megan’s professionalism, market knowledge and meticulous attention to detail led us directly to a quick and low-stress outcome. Megan worked with us every step of the way to determine pricing and presentation, all the while keeping a close eye on the myriad forces that affect the market. Her organization, network of professionals and delightful, easy-going demeanor kept us on schedule despite our out-of-state location and the ongoing COVID-19 health crisis. We were able to come on market at the perfect moment, securing a strong offer from a well-qualified buyer within two days of listing, at a time when other units in our complex had been sitting on the market for several months prior to receiving offers. It is a joy to work with Megan. She is as genuine and authentic a person as can be, and her approach is collegial and realistic. Megan makes it a point to dig deep into the metrics that surround the markets and neighborhoods in which she operates, so that her clients are always kept abreast of their options and of the influences that affect them. During our listing and subsequent closing, Megan remained in steady contact with us to keep everything on track and ensure a positive outcome. We felt that we were being looked after by someone with our best interests in mind throughout the entire sales process. I have worked within the real estate industry in a number of capacities for over 25 years, and during that time, I have been party to some 20 real estate transactions. I can honestly say that Megan is at the top of my list for thoughtful representation and flawless execution. Thanks to her, we saved substantial market time and yielded excellent results during a time of significant uncertainty. Megan has become a trusted friend and advisor, and we will definitely use her services when we purchase our next home in Portland.

Can't say enough kind words about Megan! We are (were!) first-time house buyers and Megan was incredibly kind and helpful in navigating the process with us, answering all kinds of questions and personally making sure our needs and wants are met. Her network was incredibly helpful too - every single person involved in the process treated us as a friend and not as a customer. If she couldn't be there for us due to personal circumstances she always made sure there would be someone to help us with the house tours. I highly recommend Megan and will pass along her business contacts to all of my friends looking for a home!
Yulia and Raul | Beaverton
Megan provided the best experience I could have hoped for in buying my first home, from our first meeting onward. She made sure I was comfortable and confident at every step, patiently answering my never-ending questions. She made a stressful and complicated process so much less so. She helped me find and secure the absolutely perfect home, and went above and beyond!
Margaret | SE Portland
Megan did so much to make our home buying experience as pain free as possible. Being a first timer, I did a lot of research and thought I knew what to do, but she blew us away with her local and industry knowledge. She was very responsive and did amazing leg work with other vendors to get things done. Would highly recommend her!
Siscel and Kairis | Oregon City
Megan did an excellent job helping us find a nice bungalow in competitive North Portland. Even though we went through what seemed like a million rejected offers, Megan was patient and supportive of our search, and provided all the information we asked for along with her insight. Her market knowledge is solid. She follows up without fail. All of our communication was timely and appropriate from start to finish. She helped us negotiate a great deal for a house that is a good fit for us. Megan is a good realtor. 5 star reviews are for that rare occasion when it's the best ever. Well done. Highly recommend.
Wheelers | N Portland
Megan is an amazing partner to have in the home buying/selling process. If you like data, you'll love the upfront reporting, continual comp evaluation and market trend data that is provided on your home when selling as part of her service. If you like friendly, confident, and someone who doesn't waver in light of challenging negotiations, then Megan's your Realtor. My husband and I were so incredibly happy to work with her in selling our first time and buying our next dream home. She was always prompt and communicative, followed through on her commitments, and in the end provided us with not just a great transaction but also a friendship. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her and will definitely work with her in the future. The best!
Meggan and Mike | Laurelhurst
We could not ask for a better agent for our first time home buying than Megan. She is positive, professional, and knowledgeable. She is quick to respond to calls/emails/texts, and all questions are welcome. My husband and I didn't agree on much in what we were looking for in a home, and yet Megan was able to find us the perfect first home. Thanks, Megan!
Nicole and Scott | Milwaukie
Megan went above and beyond to sell my house quickly and easily. I had to relocate before putting my house on the market, and Megan handled many of the details in readying the house for showings and for new owner possession. She came to the rescue more than once. I highly recommend Megan and would work with her again in a heartbeat!
Jill | Lake Oswego
If you're looking for an amazing, knowledgeable, caring, and honest Realtor, Megan is that person for you! This was our 2nd home buying experience, first with Megan, and I truly appreciate her level of commitment to making our home buying experience easy. Megan is super knowledgeable about the market and industry and we could tell that she had our best interests in mind. Throughout the process, Megan always made herself available to talk or be present. We had to get some contractors in for some estimates and Megan provided recommendations on contractors she's worked with in the past and even volunteered to be at those appointments in the event we couldn't make it or needed a 2nd set of eyes. This is just one of the many things that set Megan apart from being a Realtor that goes above and beyond.
Josh and Susan | Garden Home
Megan is absolutely amazing to work with! She was there every step of the way. After countless emails back and forth, showing houses that were beautiful, and then finally finding the one and making sure to get the fastest jump at it! She is warm, welcoming, and friendly! She is speedy to get back to you and make things happen! Couldn't be happier!
Lainey and JC | Donald
Megan has been amazing! She made the whole process as seamless and easy as possible. We so appreciate her positive attitude, energy, and timely communication. My two year old still asks to see Megan at least once a week. We will definitely be using Megan in the future!
Amy and Luke | Clackamas
My husband and I own a home inspection business in Portland. We have worked with Megan for the last couple of years, so when it came to choosing a realtor to sell our home we thought about all the realtors we have worked with in the past. Megan was our top choice! Working with Megan was fantastic! She was a calm voice in the wild storm of selling our home in Portland. She helped us all along the way and made sure everything was running smooth and efficiently when it came to listing and the process of selling our home. I would highly recommend Megan to anyone when it comes to selling or buying a home!! We appreciate her friendship professionally and personally. My husband and I look forward to seeing her business grow and working with her in the future should we decide to sell or buy a home.
Eric and Amelia | North Portland
Megan is very professional and attentive to detail. Selling one's home after 30+ years was overwhelming and scary. However, with Megan's help and her knowledge went rather smoothly. Megan understood that this was our home and not just a house. She was always positive and cheerful helping us through each process. She knew just how to stage our home and present it in a very beautiful way to potential buyers. Megan always kept us updated and would even check in on us when things were in a slow month. We would highly recommend Megan to anyone selling or buying a home as she is not only very professional but treats you like you were her family.
Dan and Robin | North Portland
Words cannot express the gratitude we feel for Megan during (and after) our home buying process—do you have a few hours to read a book about the many ways we appreciate her? My partner and I were first-time homebuyers that knew nothing about the process, and Megan could not have been more helpful. Megan always knew the answers when we had questions, and explained concepts to us in a way that we could understand and until we understood it. She was incredibly flexible with us and often would go out of her way to make time in her day to show us a home or to answer our (frantic) phone calls. After we put in an offer and it was accepted, it got down to the wire with requests for repairs and our first time home buying jitters. When we were feeling nervous, overwhelmed, frantic, or anxious, Megan was our calm, positive, honest, and hilarious counterpart. Further, we never once felt pressured or pushed by Megan into doing anything. Even when Megan left the country as we anxiously awaited repairs and closing, her communication was frequent. It felt like she never even left! We experienced a bit of a hiccup (in the form of the house coming with a flea infestation—ew) upon move in, and Megan was more than willing to advocate on our behalf with the sellers and their realtor. We love our (now flea-free) new home, and can’t thank Megan enough for her hard work and patience with us!

This is an overdue thank you for everything that you did for me! Yes, you sold my house (my home for 25 years), but you also answered my every question, held my hand, calmed my nerves, shared my frustrations and definitely shared my excitement. You took my calls and answered my text messages at all hours of the day and night, and expertly handled potential problems when they came up before they became big problems! I am extremely pleased with the outcome of the sale of my home, and the level of commitment that you have to be available and present for every step of the process. If I could, I would write across the sky….”Heather Coleman and Megan Banta are a TERRIFIC Team! They are the BEST in the business!” I will miss you both!
Nancy | Lake Grove
We were able to work with Megan to sell our home in Clackamas. We knew the market would be really good and Megan made the sale such a fun and easy experience for us. She coordinated photos, held open houses (with treats!) and did all the heavy lifting with negotiations so we could focus on our move into our new home. If you want an agent that is attentive, proactive and goes the extra mile….and will even bring you coffee to the signing, use Megan!
Cindy and David | Beaverton
I cannot express how fantastic Megan has been through the process. I am a first time home buyer and I circumvented most of her normal, very useful processes, in that we went to look at homes before having an initial meeting, put in an offer the next day, and had it accepted that night. A record! She was there to go over everything with me, guide me through things that were not a part of her job, and even now, months later (I'm a bit delayed in my review!) she's raring to go in my corner as I work through homeowner issues. I would recommend her to anyone.
Nicole | Hillsboro
Megan was very helpful in finding the right place for us. She did a great job in identifying the needs we have and the budget we have and helped find the right home. She is always reachable and very prompt in responding with the correct answers.
Mallik | Beaverton
Megan and Heather are absolutely top notch. As business owners, my wife and I certainly appreciate the dedication and commitment, not only to home buying but to us as well. Megan went above and beyond to meet us at many homes until we finally settled on exactly what we were looking for. In an extremely competitive market, buying a home with a VA loan is usually not a first option for sellers to accept. However, neither Megan or Heather ever once tried to persuade us to obtain another loan option. Megan was extremely patient, and her professional knowledge and advice were absolutely the best. Consider this the highest recommendation one could give.
