Chris Johnson, the owner, is a working broker and a property manager licensed in the State of Oregon. With nearly 30 years’ experience in real estate sales and investment property ownership, he started Core Realtors in 2014 after a long tenure at a well reputed real estate firm.

Being locally owned and not part of a large franchise organization, Chris along with 5 Oregon licensed Realtors® are actively engaged in all aspects of real estate transactions. We will analyze the property’s market, pricing, listing, marketing, negotiations and sale processes. We use high tech software and tools to provide our overall expertise. Since we are small firm we are nimble and can easily collaborate together to leverage the expertise of each broker for our client’s best interests.

We like to meet face-to-face with clients over a cup of coffee to discuss their needs. Our office offers a great place to sit a spell, in case you are early for your meeting with us. Granted, we have all the technology in place, however we like to have some whimsical things in our lives and lobby too.
