The Pacific Northwest Lifestyle

Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Northwest Real Estate
Let us introduce you to the Pacific Northwest Lifestyle

Welcome to our home

This vibrant region of our country offers breathtaking natural beauty, world-class corporations, recreational abundance and strong community. Regardless of what drives someone to live in the greater Portland area, the quality of life and everything this city has to offer makes it “home.”

You will find that the Portland metro area is full of culture and history; from funky food carts to wine country, performing arts, microbreweries, farmer’s markets, charming neighborhoods, family festivals and tasty Northwest cuisine -- there is something for everyone. Portland offers good public and private schools, varying industry and is home to large employers such as Intel, Nike, Oregon Health & Science University and Precision Castparts.

Getting around town or out to the suburbs is easy with Portland's award-winning public transportation systems. We are well-known for our quality transit, abundance of bike lanes, light rail, aerial tram and streetcar options, along with the new Tilikum Crossing, Bridge of the People, which is the first Willamette River bridge restricted to mass transit, bicycle, pedestrian and emergency vehicle use.

Sporting events are extremely popular and you don’t have to look hard to find plenty of Ducks and Beavers, Trail Blazers and hockey fans, members of the Timbers Army or fans of the World-Cup winning Thorns soccer players.

The beauty of the Pacific Northwest is endless, offering pristine coastlines, the arid high desert and glorious mountain ranges. Outdoor activities can be found everywhere -- from hiking and fishing, to camping, biking, boating and stand up paddling, to name just a few. Our annual Hood to Coast event is the largest relay race in the world and attracts runners and walkers from around the globe. And if snow sports are your passion, you can ski or board nearly all year long on Mt Hood, which offers the longest ski season in North America.
