Chris Balmes PC, GRI, e-PRO and her daughter, Lisa Balmes PC, e-PRO, opened Chris Balmes Properties LLC (CBP) to service the Portland, OR metropolitan area in 2007.
CBP has licensed Brokers/Agents in both Oregon and Washington, which will allow the ability and experience to search the entire metro area for a client’s perfect home. We also have a bilingual Broker fluent in Spanish. CBP Brokers/Agents have been involved in many types of real estate; residential, short sales, REO properties, Fannie Mae HomePath properties, HUD properties, commercial, corporate relocation services, rural residential, new construction, investment properties, foreclosures, multifamily, and 1031 exchanges. This gives CBP a superior knowledge of building, remodeling, and maintaining a home.
We are a recognized as a National and State of Oregon registered Women/Minority Owned business. Our company is also a HUD certified, which means we can list and write offers on HUD owned properties.
CBP has a Property Management and Vacation Rental division as a service for our clients. Adding this service has allowed our clients the opportunity to sell, buy and manage their properties all with Chris Balmes Properties.
The Portland Business Journal named both Chris and Lisa as 2011 Nominees of the Women of Influence List. CBP was also named as #33 Top Minority-owned Business in March 2012 and #55 Top women-owned Business in April 2012. The paper also named CBP as 2009 #12 Top Real Estate Firm., #18 in 2008 and #17 in 2007. This is a phenomenal milestone for us, as we formed the company in March 2007. We appreciate the support of our long time clients, vendors, friends and community for all the support.
