In the fall of 2020 we made the decision to sell the home my parents had lived in for 45 years, a home that had been the hub for four generations of our family but one that no longer worked well for two very elderly people. Anita was our guide from the very beginning, helping us understand the market and the best way to assess what work was needed and how to think about the many decisions before us. She provided strategic, thoughtful counsel and invested time in us even before a contract was signed. She and Leo were with us every step of the way, always responsive and supportive, calm, professional, caring, and practical. And both were quite willing to roll up their sleeves to help with anything from moving furniture to meeting contractors to choosing paint colors. Anita and Leo made it as easy as it could be for us and we rested easy knowing that we had knowledgeable, caring people looking out for my parent’s best interest and ensuring that there was a transparent process so that would-be buyers were getting the information they needed to make a good decision. The house listed - and sold quickly - in May. We couldn’t recommend Anita and Leo and their Hasson Company team more highly.

Anita and Leo from the Hasson Company Realtors are by far the most professional people I have encountered in the real estate business. I interviewed many agents before I picked Anita and Leo and it was no contest as to who I should pick. Their vast knowledge and years of experience in the real estate business assisted me in understanding the process of selling my house. They knew exactly how to stage my home and have it photographed to perfection. They had a clear schedule of how the process would fall into place and they never missed a step. My house sold in just a few days. The excellent service, frequent communication, professionalism, and dependability made the sale process so much easier for me. They went above and beyond, and I would certainly recommend their services to anyone that is interested in buying or selling a home.

In 2020 Anita and Leo represented us in buying our new home in Mcminnville and selling our old home in Portland. Anita and Leo's representation on both of these transactions was excellent. They were prepared for the inevitable exigencies and complications that occur during real estate transactions, which were handled ethically, fairly, efficiently, and without drama. From our point of view, a huge advantage of working with Anita as the lead negotiator was simple confidence that she would always listen to us and then fairly and confidently represent our interests while treating the buyer/seller and their realtor with respect. The sale of our home in Portland became complicated when an accepted offer had to be withdrawn due to a family medical emergency. Anita and Leo had backup offers in hand and had kept the other interested parties engaged so that after losing the sale, multiple full-price offers were in place within a few days. We had expressed a desire to avoid a bidding war, which Anita handled skillfully and the final sale went through quickly.

My wife and I just moved into the Hillsboro/Beaverton area last October and were hoping to find a good opportunity to buy a house. We contacted Anita earlier during the spring and since day 1 she was incredibly helpful and responsive. She has a lot of experience in the area and is definitely on top of her game. Additionally, she is a wonderful human being. We came to Oregon for a couple of weeks on our house hunting trip, and Anita drove us around diligently and patiently, and showed us a great range of houses that matched our requirements and budget right on. All throughout the home buying process, Anita and Leo were there for us, providing the right guidance and advise. Knowing we had such knowledgeable professionals working on our side gave us great peace of mind. We ended up buying a very nice new house which we're enjoying a lot. Leo even carved a "Welcome Home" pumpkin for us! (It was late October when we moved in) What a nice detail =) I'm recommending this dynamic duo to everyone I know!

Anita is the ultimate professional - bright, focused and at the "top of her game" when it comes to managing the demanding steps involved in finding and negotiating on a new home. I've found Anita to have a lovely balance of firmness and grace. She will represent you well and do so in a way that leaves all parties at ease. Anita and her partner, Leo, had a keen sense of what I was looking for and helped me to find the perfect home and setting. I can't imagine the process without them. I have the highest respect and appreciation for Ms. Singh Cardoso and have already recommended her to others about to begin their search knowing they'll be in the best of hands:)

Anita and Leo were referred to us by a friend and mortgage broker, Heidi Barber. Heidi used their services to sell her own home and had only good things to say about how they handled the process. Great praise indeed!

We are very thankful and appreciative for Anita’s and Leo’s support during our house searching and buying process. They always answered all our questions thoroughly, gave us objective advise and showed a lot of patience throughout the entire time we looked for a house. We never felt under pressure to make a decision sooner, and we were always met with the same professional support during the months we searched for a house. We highly appreciated that Anita and Leo explained to us in detail what to look for when considering the value of a house, so that we could make a better, educated choice. After we made an offer, we encountered the next hurdle, a very aggressive deadline to meet. We might have missed the deadline without Anita’s and Leo’s guiding us through all the steps and making sure we were on track with the tight schedule. We are not planning to buy another house soon, but if we did, we would not think of any better agents than Anita and Leo to represent us :)

Anita & Leo worked with us to sell our family home that I was in for over 12 years. A very emotional sale but Anita & Leo helped us through this process every step of the way and never skipped a beat. They were both available nearly 24 hours a day when we had questions or concerns. Every step of the process was seamless. I would HIGHLY recommend Anita & Leo to help you either sell your home or buy a new one. We will never go anywhere else and have gained friends for life.

Selling a home under the best of circumstances is stressful enough but when the circumstances are less than ideal, it adds a whole other layer of anxiety. Anita made me feel comfortable from the start and handled the complete process from listing agreement to closing with such integrity and professionalism. I relied on her wise counsel and diplomacy throughout and so appreciated the hand-holding and encouragement she provided until the deal was completely done and closed. I would highly recommend Anita and am grateful to have had her help! --Sarah

: After living in the same house for 35 years, raising our children there and loving it thoroughly, we decided to sell and move to San Diego to be with our children and grandchildren. This occurred in one of the biggest down real estate markets in the last 40 years. After interviewing a number of real estate agents, we chose Anita Singh Cardoso and Leo Jacobs. I will admit up front that I had an “attitude”...cynical, at best, about real estate agents. Anita and Leo won me over. They were flat out terrific. There were diligent and attentive. They understood our needs. They offered salient suggestions about preparing the house for market. They were active in the marketing process with open houses. Leo’s “lunch for the realtors” was a huge success. They were honest and upfront with the counsel. They plainly just worked hard. They make an outstanding team. I ended the process not only respecting their professional abilities, but also considering them my friends. I recommend Anita and Leo with my highest recommendation, without the slightest reservation, and know that you will be well taken care of by this professional, yet personal team. Sincerely yours, Harold Vick, MD

Anita & Leo, You are not only great real estate agents, but truly warm and interesting people as well. You managed somehow to take a list from Joe of "mountain views" and " close to hiking" and a list from me of "walkable to downtown" and "historic or unique property" and somehow find our perfect new home! It has truly been a pleasure getting to know you and other new friends you've brought into our acquaintance. If it would ever help to have us used as a reference, please feel free... Hugs, Nancy

Leo and Anita have been invaluable business resources to us, and more importantly, great friends. We began working with them approximately 5yrs ago. Leo and Anita had a great eye for the market and picked out a cozy tri-level home for us in Beaverton. This was our first home in Oregon, and we love it dearly. Since then, we’ve purchased two other homes with their help. In addition, other relatives of ours purchased two homes in the Hillsboro area with their help. We all appreciate their experience, honesty, and professionalism in the Real Estate business, and we look forward to continued business with them in the near future.

I met Anita in 1983 when my parents sold their house to move down to California. A year later in the heart of one of the worst recessions Anita helped my room mate sell his house. 20 plus years later and Anita has continued to show her professionalism and ability to connect the right buyer with the right seller in a manner that every one is positive about the experience. At a recent gathering at our home of some 30 friends the conversation came up in regards to where we all used to live and that moment we realized Anita was successfully involved in each of our home transactions. Thank you Anita, for putting your heart into our homes.

— David and Krista Schreiber

We met Anita and Leo when they were the sellers’ agents on a house we purchased when moving to Portland. They so impressed us throughout that transaction, with us as buyers, we turned to them when it came time for us to sell the same home. They had worked very hard for us as the buyers the first time around, and from that experience we thought they would be the best choice. We found them to be impeccably professional, extremely honest and forthright, none of which surprised us based on our prior experience with them. Anita worked very hard to price our home properly. She did such a great job that our house sold in two days with a full price offer, followed closely by a second full price back up offer! We clearly did make the best choice in them, and would recommend them most highly and without any reservation. Since we moved out of Oregon, the only regret we had was that they were not able to help us find our next house!

From the minute we met Anita and Leo we knew it was going to be a great fit. No-nonsense, down to business, honest, professional and not afraid of "good old fashioned hard work". Not only were we apprehensive about the current market conditions, we also wanted our house to "show" in the best possible way. Leo was kind enough to help out in that area. He came in and within 20 minutes, he had staged our house beautifully. We received positive comments from the first s howing to the last. Thanks to Anita and Leo's hard work and professional expertise, our house sold in one week. Without question, we recommend Anita and Leo. They are a fabulous team!

We got to know Anita through a friend and we were very happy that she represented us. We got full price offer within a week and sold the house in about 3 weeks! Anita has a good network in the industry and is very much in tune with the real estate markets. With her multiple years of realtor experience and thorough market analysis tailored for us, she recommended a reasonable and competitive price and an agile marking plan. She provided a detailed list of homework for us to do and also a good network of handymen who helped us greatly. We were impressed by her professionalism. She was helpful and available for questions, discussions, and coordination throughout the whole process. She is organized, articulate, paying attention to details, honest, and fun to work with.

We were referred to Anita by a family friend. To our pleasant surprise, Anita sold our home in 31 days in one of the toughest real estate market in years. I was amazed by the amount of effort she put to get our house sold. She was always in communication with us giving us updates about visits, market conditions and thoroughly followed up with every single visitor we had. We were at ease with matter in her hand, and she was one step ahead as far as marketing, negotiating and making the sale happen. If we were to sell or buy another house we don't have to search for another agent, it will be Anita (if she is still working!). We are extremely pleased with the way she handled everything. With Anita and Leo, you get real Realtors working for you not just a sign post.

We want to thank you for the great service you provided us in selling our home for us. This was the second house you have sold for us and we are glad we came back. It is hard to choose which part of your service was most valuable to us because you're contribution was outstanding in so many ways. To begin, there was you're thorough market analysis for our home and thoughtful recommendation of the listing price. Your advice on staging the house meant we didn't need to hire anyone else to do it. After the house was listed, you both worked hard to promote the property. I remember the first week, there were two showings a day, and there were always at least two showings a week. This was fabulous in a depressed market! "After we moved out, you helped to make sure the house was clean and presentable. I really appreciate how much time you spent at the house cleaning the deck, etc. And then when we entered negotiations for the sale, your encouragement helped us to get our full asking price, after just six weeks on the market. "This result was well beyond our hopes and expectations. You both did an outstanding job making this experience remarkable.
