Dom was such a wonderful agent from start to finish in the purchase of my first home! He went above and beyond to make sure that I was well taken care of, and that he understood my specific needs in a home. I would recommend him to anyone I know!!
This is the second real estate transaction my wife and I have had with Dominic and in both transactions, he orchestrated the selling of our home and buying of another, masterfully.
With our most recent interaction, the buyers of our home terminated the deal at the 11th hour. We were certain the deal was dead. Even the listing agent had written it all off. But Dominic didn’t. He took an unprecedented step of slightly reducing his commission fee and reallocating the funds to the buyers' concessions in order to help us get the deal back on track. We were in disbelief that he went to such efforts to keep the deal together. Clearly, it was the little push that was needed as it was enough to bring the buyers back and move the deal forward to close on time and without any further hiccups.
In both transactions, we saw Dominic stay cool under pressure and work all of the creative angles when it came negations. Dominic is the nucleus of our team. We know we can trust him and if/when we sell/purchase another home in Portland, we are certain he is the first call we’ll be making.
Dominic helped us buy our first house. It was a very stressful process at times and Dominic was a steady, professional and comforting presence throughout. We ended up with an incredible property. I couldn't recommend Hernandez Real Estate Group highly enough. Also, I've sent a number of friends to Dominic, all of whom have had similarly great experiences.
Dominic was wonderful to work within both the sale of our home and the purchase of our new home. He took the time to really understand what was important to us.
Dominic was there every step of the process, always available to answer questions or go over the information. He is very knowledgeable and was great at helping us find solutions that were the best fit for our needs.
We couldn’t have asked for a better realtor! We would recommend him to anyone!
I first used Dominic Hernandez to buy a home in 2017, thinking I would stay in that house for a long time. Things changed and I decided to move to another state. I called Dominic on a Tuesday and told him I wanted to list my house. It hit the internet 2 days later, and we had 3 showings that day. We had 3 offers by the following Monday. Dominic priced it right and it was showing well.
I needed a couple of minor repairs done and Dominic had a contractor contact me to get the work done within a day of the request. Dominic coordinated my sale with my purchase in another state. Everything was handled effortlessly. A totally stress-free transaction. My house was listed and sold within 30 days. It doesn't get much better than that.
Dominic and his team have helped us buy a house and sell our house. I absolutely recommend him. He is hard-working, responsive and listens well to his clients. He is very relational and puts a lot of care into his work. Again, I very much recommend him.
My husband and I engaged in the services and expertise of Dominic Hernandez to list our house and purchase a new one in February of 2018. From the very beginning, Dominic was extremely accommodating with our schedule; having 4 kids meant our availability was relatively limited. Being a family man himself, he was extremely understanding and made himself available anytime we needed his opinion, knowledge or just to simply ask questions.
Originally, our plan was to purchase a fixer-upper and when we found what we thought would be ‘the one’, negotiations and counter offer turned out to be brutal and never-ending. Dominic remained supportive and reassuring through the entirety of the process while putting time and thought into communication and negotiations between all parties. Undoubtedly, he made sure to provide us all options, pros vs. cons and always had our best interest at heart, ensuring we were making the best and smartest decisions for our family.
When we walked away from that deal I was worried he thought we were a hassle or we wasted his time but it was very much the opposite; he had the most positive outlook and was eager to begin a new search with us to find us forever home. While buying a house can be intimidating, or in our case, exhausting, Dominic remained patient with us, showed us MANY houses and reached out to several realtors on our behalf.
He is trust worthy, honest and very upfront and knowledgeable of the home buying process and real estate industry as a whole. Dominic comes highly recommended by myself and my family; he helped us find our dream home and we couldn’t be happier!
Dom went above and beyond in helping me find and purchase my first home! He was professional, clear, and made sure he understood exactly what I was looking for. I would recommend him to anyone!
I could write a lengthy review of all the ways that Dominic put up with our demands as buyers and it would make him look good. But out of respect and brevity, I would like to say this, he is awesome and well deserved of the praise he receives.
Dominic was attentive and did what our first couple of attempts at an agent did not do...he listened. He made it easy, quick, and painless to buy our (first) home. Dominic came prepared with listings that matched our preferences and homes that were in our price range. No one can match his levels of service, attentiveness, and work ethic. I can tell you first hand that Dominic is absolutely the best at what he does.
It was our good fortune to be referred to Dominic when we began our search as first-time home buyers. Dominic possesses all the attributes a person looks for in a quality agent, in particular, he is professional, knows the Portland market extremely well, and is willing to go the extra mile at every step of the process, especially during the negotiation phase. His communication with us was excellent and prompt from beginning to end, and we really appreciated his ability and willingness to guide us through a sometimes overwhelming process. Despite a very competitive housing market, our housing search was a very positive experience; we always felt Dominic was listening to our wants and goals and at the end of the day truly cared about finding the perfect place for us. Also, Dominic’s experience and connections in this market were invaluable. We are absolutely recommending Dominic’s expertise to friends and family looking to buy or sell a home.
As a former Realtor, I knew the importance of selecting a great Realtor to help me sell my home and to help me secure a new one. Since I had been in the business for close to 5 years, I had a lot of Realtors to select from. In the end, my choice was easy. I knew Dominic was a very sharp, experienced, well-studied Realtor with a knack for being a hard-nosed negotiator. After holding an open house that drew in multiple offers, Dominic helped us to maximize our selling price. Dominic understands the importance of creating buzz and picking the right price to help maximize interest in the home. This helped us sell our home for above our asking price. As a former Realtor, I could have put my home up for sale myself, but I was fully convinced that I would not have sold it for the same amount that Dominic sold it for. I also would have been stuck with trying to perform all of the detailed paperwork and making sure that I hit all of my deadlines. Dominic handled all of this flawlessly. He met all of our deadlines and helped us to avoid all of the potential land mines that could have potentially tanked our deal. I highly recommend Dominic to anyone without any reservation at all!
As Jenn and I have been working these last 8 months fixing up our new home and as we make plans for future home improvement projects, I feel it necessary to stop and thank the man who helped make this possible for us.
At the close of last year, Jenn and I began to seriously consider the possibility of moving from our home in Gresham to a home in Portland. This move actually seemed more like an impossibility. I had bought my house at the peak of the housing boom, back in 2007. I was upside down by a considerable amount, thus making our dream to sell and move seemed out of the question. But God had a plan. We voiced our hopes to our friend and real estate agent, Dominic Hernandez. Everything changed at this point. We began to look for houses in Portland and found one that was perfect for us. Over the next few months, Dominic navigated the complex task of helping us buying one home and short-sell another with confidence, expertise, kindness, and honesty. We always felt like a priority and that we were well taken care of. When we had concerns about the neighborhood, he came with us to knock on the neighbor’s doors asking them about the area. He didn’t just care about the sale; he took our concerns seriously and cared about our happiness and well-being.
So thank you, Dominic, for not only being our real estate agent but for being a man we could trust with these monumental life decisions. Thank you for becoming our friend and a man I admire.
We’ve been moved into our new home for several months now, and just want to say a big “thank you!” to Dominic for working so hard to make it possible. Since it was our first house purchase, we really didn’t know what the process looked like or what to expect, and Dominic was always available to explain things to us and prepare us for what each step would look like.
Throughout the process of searching for that “perfect” house that had the things that were important to us and was within our budget, Dom was always ready to take us out to see all the houses that caught our interest, help us think through pros and cons, and explain all the details of the home buying process.
One thing that I really appreciated about working with Dominic was that he never made us feel pressured to like a house that he showed us, in fact when we got overexcited about a house and overlooked some serious flaw, he would point it out to us and help us think through the repercussions and costs associated. It was always clear that he really wanted to help us find the house that was the right fit for us.
When we finally found the house that we loved, Dominic was dedicated to move the short sale forward in every way he could, and continued to be available to answer all of our questions and concerns.
When the bank gave us only 10 business days to close the deal, he helped make all the necessary things happen at lightning speed, including using his connections to get necessary repairs done in less than 24 hours, being at all the inspections even when we couldn’t make it, and explaining everything so that we were comfortable with each step in the process.
Dominic negotiated an amazing deal for us on a house that we love, and stuck with it through the whole process, going above and beyond to get everything completed in time.
We love our new home and are so thankful to have had such a great home buying experience with Dominic!
Dominic helped my wife and me to sell our home fast and for way more than we thought we could get. He also found the perfect home for us to buy, walking us through each step of the way and his advice was amazing. We highly recommend him to help you as well. (BTW, he didn't ask me to post this. I really think he's the best!)
Dominic helped me buy a house in a seller's market. He is so patient and genuine, and he really takes the time to explain the home buying process. I have been in the home Dominic helped me buy for eight years now, and couldn't be happier with where I am. I highly recommend enlisting Dominic as your real estate agent. I will definitely use him again in the future!
