About Tanner Michalowski

Looking to purchase a home:

If you're looking for an agent to help you find the perfect home and have fun in the process, then you have found him. I believe that listening to my clients' wants, needs and concerns is the most important aspect in developing a great agent/client relationship. 
I have over 6 years of experience buying distressed houses in the Portland market. This is what sets me apart from other agents. Even if you're not looking for a fixer, I can easily identify potential problems with any house and bring them to your attention. 

Looking to sell your home:

I have bought and sold over 50 houses in the Portland market. In order to be successful in your home you have to know what buyers are looking for. I have an eye for potential issues and I'll bring them to your attention so that we may address them before listing your home, which will make your home sell faster. In addition, making sure your home is priced properly is also an important part to selling your home. My knowledge of the area and trends in the market place is where I shine! 

My Company and Team:

When you hire me as your agent you are also getting the entire support of the Oregon First Company. Their tools and resources are designed to keep us in constant communication during the transaction and assist with any possible curveballs. My team is ready for whatever you have to throw at me, so let me know how I can help you with your next purchase or sale.


"Tanner has gone above and beyond what we expected from our first realtor. He's been able to answer every question we had before we asked it. He was a champion for us when we needed a top notch negotiator. Buying your first home is tough, and it gets tougher with every step of the process, but having Tanner by our side made everything much easier and he kept us as calm as possible throughout the process. We honestly couldn't have stumbled upon a more perfect person to help guide us through this life change and couldn't recommend him more for any potential reality needs."

Timothy and Caitlin McSweeney

"Tanner Michalowski is one of the finest, most professional real estate agents I've met during forty years of renting, land-lording, buying, selling, and actively working in real estate for 15 years of that time. He has a gift for leading people to properties within their scope of interest and budget, quickly finds the answers to technical questions because he knows the right people to ask throughout the area, and has the perfect low-keyed temperament to deal with the often emotional moments experienced by sellers and buyers. He guided my family and me through what could have been a very complex and time-consuming process with expertise and humor, and because of him we were able to close on a property two months after he showed it to us. We feel very luck to have met him, and to be the new owners of a property whose former owners we now consider friends of our family. We can't thank him enough or recommend him more highly."

"Tanner was a great help for me as a first time buyer. Not only did he help me with understanding the process or getting a home, but also helped me find a home that I am proud to own. He understood what I was looking for, and found me a home with all the things I was looking for. I really recommend Tanner for any first time buyer, and to anyone that wants a realtor that makes the home buying process easier."

Robert Flores

"Working with Tanner to find a house was a wonderful experience! He was always willing to look through our long lists of potential houses in order to narrow down the best ones to visit in person. He had a great understanding of what we wanted in a house and worked hard to show us good ones, while filtering out most of the bad ones. Our loan was unconventional, but that didn't stop Tanner from understanding it fully and presenting it to potential sellers in the best way possible. He was fast with the paperwork and submitted everything with exceptional speed and detail, which is important in this fast-moving market. We bought a wonderful house after about 4 months of working with Tanner, and he got us an amazing deal! The saddest part of buying the house was knowing that we wouldn't be house-hunting with Tanner anymore. We would recommend Tanner's help and expertise with any real estate deal!"

Kate & Colin

"After living in our home for almost a quarter of a century the thought of selling it seemed more than daunting. Luckily Tanner Michalowski came to our rescue. Within 5 minutes of meeting him his knowledge, calm professional manner, helpful insights and positivity put our minds at ease. The expertise at each phase of the sales process was superior; Tanner showed himself to be dedicated to our needs and was in close contact every step of the way. Emails, texts and phone calls were returned almost immediately. We always felt confident that were an issue to arrive Tanner would be there to quickly resolve it with our best interests at heart. I never imagined that selling our house could have been so quick, painless and even pleasant. We couldn't have been more pleased and impressed and owe it all to Tanner for making this possible. We highly recommend his service to anyone."

Sherry & Jeff

"Tanner, We can't thank you enough for all your help with finding and purchasing our first home! We really appreciate how well you communicated with us, always so fast and thorough, at all hours, and even while you were on vacation! You were so patient with our endless questions and put our minds at ease several times. We also really appreciated the bucket of tools! That was so nice of you and we know they'll be very helpful. We really enjoyed working with you and will highly recommend you to everyone we know!"

Kevin, Amanda & Kaelyn

"My husband and I were recommended Tanner through a family friend who had recently bough a house in Beaverton. We were first time home buyers, so from the moment I contacted Tanner to the day we finally got the keys to our first house, Tanner was such a huge help! He gave us such great advice and encouragemet in the process, and we felt well taken care of. We went through the rigmarole of three different offers, and we really felt like our last pick was the best place for us. Tanner had a lot of patience with us and was always there to answer our questions, meet with us at our convenience for house showings and paperwork signings, and keep us always up-to-date in the process. Tanner is an incredibly positive person to work with, and we could tell he really loves to help people find the perfect home."

Abbey and Arnaud Prevot

"Tanner was the best real estate agent I could have worked with! He walked me through the process of buying a home for the first time with the calm and good humor I needed, and found me a home that managed to meet all of my wants and needs! I would recommend him to anyone without hesitation for your real estate needs!"

Elizabeth Bonn

"Tanner, you are a class act, both personally and preofessionally...thank you for your patience and for always having our best interest at heart!"

Linda and Victor Drakulich

"Tanner has thoughtfully and proactively helped me in buying and selling five investment properties over the last 24 months. He has been extremely professional and so very helpful in what could have been very stressful situations. I have always felt like Tanner had my best interests at heart when he has advised me and look forward to having a long working relationship with him. I would highly recommend Tanner to anyone looking to buy or sell their home."
