Oregon State Capitol

Oregon is located on the northwestern coast of the United States. The state is heavily forested, with mountains, valleys, and a rocky coastline. Parks, waterfalls, and hiking trails provide excellent opportunities for outdoor recreation.

Portland is known as an environmentally friendly city and is famous for its many microbreweries and coffee shops. It is an ideal city for biking, with many bicycle commuters, bicycle paths, and bicycling events. Public transportation, arts and cultural centers, film festivals, and diverse cuisine help complete the metropolitan lifestyle.

Oregon real estate choices reflect the diversity of the state, with urban loft apartments, single-family suburban homes, coastal properties, mountain retreats, golf course communities, equestrian communities, and more. Portland has one of the nation’s largest inventories of homes certified by Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED).
