Empowering Your Real Estate Journey with Chris Balmes Properties

In 2007, Chris Balmes PC, GRI, e-PRO, along with her daughter, Lisa Balmes PC, e-PRO, established Chris Balmes Properties LLC (CBP) to cater to the real estate needs of the vibrant Portland, Oregon metropolitan area.

Your Trusted Source Across Two States

At CBP, we take pride in having licensed Brokers/Agents operating seamlessly in both Oregon and Washington. This dual-state presence empowers us to scour the entire metropolitan area in search of your perfect home. Additionally, we are fortunate to have a bilingual Broker fluent in Spanish, ensuring that language is never a barrier to serving our diverse clientele.

Our seasoned CBP Brokers/Agents come armed with a wealth of experience encompassing a wide spectrum of real estate domains, including residential, short sales, REO properties, Fannie Mae HomePath properties, HUD properties, commercial real estate, corporate relocation services, rural residential properties, new construction projects, investment properties, foreclosures, multifamily units, and 1031 exchanges. This breadth of expertise equips us with unparalleled insights into the nuances of building, remodeling, and maintaining a home, fostering a holistic approach to real estate.

A Recognized Women/Minority Owned Business

CBP stands proudly as a National and State of Oregon registered Women/Minority Owned business. Moreover, our status as a HUD-certified entity empowers us to list and craft offers for HUD-owned properties, enhancing the breadth of our services.

Your One-Stop Real Estate Solution

Beyond traditional real estate services, CBP boasts a dedicated Property Management and Vacation Rental division. This extension of our offerings allows clients the convenience of seamlessly transitioning between selling, buying, and managing their properties, all under the trusted banner of Chris Balmes Properties LLC.

Celebrating Milestones with Our Community

Our journey has been marked by accolades and milestones. The Portland Business Journal recognized both Chris and Lisa as 2013 Nominees of the Women of Influence List. CBP was also honored as the #33 Top Minority-owned Business in March 2012 and the #55 Top Women-owned Business in April 2012.
