“Kris Cochran ~ Realtor Extraordinaire? Yes! ?Kris and Cochran Property Group are incredibly experienced and through that experience made our home search educational, fun and hopeful.My Dad moved in with us which created a need for one home with two separate spaces. It certainly doesn’t take long for Kris to figure out “what you want, as well as what you need” in finding the right home. She uses both of these factors to not only show you homes that fit but homes that will rent or sell easily when you cross that bridge. We sincerely appreciate that she aims to cover current and future needs!She has been through remodeling herself and just in general has a lot of great feedback in regard to how you can update the home if you are looking to remodel. Her input in this area was invaluable as we needed to remodel any home we purchased to meet my Dad’s needs. Kris has so much experience in this regional area she was able to give feedback on just about every home we looked at, which were quite a few. She knew when a home could be added on to and when it could not because she knows the history and allowances of so many homes on the market. She is easy to work with, has a strong work ethic, is available when needed and has great character. We enjoyed our time working with her!! We are very satisfied with our home purchase!! Kris made the process easier and smoother than expected and was with us every step of the journey. Thank you Kris! We HIGHLY recommend Kris Cochran for your realty needs!!”

“Kris was incredibly knowledgeable and an absolute pleasure to work with throughout our home buying process. As a family new to the Portland metro area Kris helped guide us with the nuances of buying a home in the area. She never compromised on helping us find the perfect home, helping us to understand property features and what to look for in each house. She was incredibly patient with us and our home search with three small children. We would highly recommend Kris to anyone looking for their perfect home!”

“Colleen & I were more than happy with Chris & her team”s extensive efforts from the beginning to the successful end of our home sales process. We valued her pricing & staging advice & her consistent communication. She was a referral to us & we now know why & are grateful for that too. We are pleased to recommend her services & don’t believe anyone could have out perfomed her or been more pleasant to work with.”
“Kris’s integrity shines through in everything she does. My husband and I rested easy in knowing she always had our best interest at heart. When people hear you’re working with her, you will most likely hear them say “oh, she’s great!” before you can finish your sentence. I highly recommend her to anyone taking the journey of purchasing a home!”
David and Becky Boos
“Kris listed our house. We thought our house and property were unique and so did she. During the selling process she turned every problem into an opportunity to demonstrate her expertise and encourage us in the process. We had to deal with the county on a number of issues and Kris knew who to talk to and, perhaps even more important, who not to talk to. Kris treated every question, comment, concern or apprehension that we had as if it was the most important issue she had to deal with that day. She was always available for us.Kris is above board in all that she does during the selling, or buying, process. Everything is disclosed and worked through to resolution. At the end of the process, both Kris and the transaction is above reproach. Kris is calm, but not timid. During any negotiation you want Kris in your corner. A friend as well as a professional. Reassuring to know that all the bases were covered in our sale and purchase. Excellent, consistent, and up to date communication. Client driven.I would recommend Kris as your agent as a seller or a buyer without hesitation or reservation.”

“We are thrilled to have the opportunity let people know how much we think of Kris Cochran. To say that she goes above and beyond the call of duty is an understatement.Our house was a difficult sell: rural property, somewhat dated, and we were asking top price. Kris recommended a few upgrades to help us sell the house, marketed it aggressively, and held our hand when necessary.We have since recommended Kris to several people, including our next-door neighbor and a family member. She is a winning combination of professional and personable.”
“Kris is very knowledgeable, experienced, and a pleasure to work with. She was professional in her preparation and marketing of the sale of our home, and when a deal came together, she paid attention to detail and kept the process moving. We highly recommend her and will be using her again in the future.”
“It’s no secret that buying your first home and getting married are two of the most exciting/ stressful times in any individuals life. My wife and myself decided we were ready to buy a house and plan a wedding in the same two-month time frame. I would not recommend this to anyone… unless they have a realtor they can trust and depend on. We were in the market for months up to this point and always seemed to fall into pushy agents that did more haggling than anything.That is, until we met Kris Cochran. Kris is the most genuine and professional realtor you could ever have the privilege to work with. She was always prompt and looking ahead for our best interest in all aspects. Her friendly and kind demeanor helped us as first-time home buyers understand the process through every step. It was completely painless, and she took a tremendous amount of stress out of it especially for our situation. Kris truly has a heart not only for her job but her customers as well. This was made very apparent through the entirety of the process with us. She is very good at what she does, and we would not be in our “first time home buyer” dream home without her and all of her hard work. I would strongly recommend Kris, for anyone looking to make the move!”
“Kris does business the old-fashioned way, she works hard! She is detailed orientated and has the knowledge, skills and experience to help you reach your goals. Kris was my broker on two occasions. First when I was a seller, then again when I was a buyer and, in each instance, we had great results. I like that she will give you advice but will also listen to your desires and input. Kris had a great deal of patience and let me analyze things closely… okay maybe excessively, to help me feel comfortable about my decisions. Kris kept my best interests at heart and has earned my trust and confidence.”
“I can’t thank Kris enough for the outstanding job she did in selling my home. She is very experienced, knowledgeable, efficient, responsive and competent – all characteristics you need in a good realtor. I had lived in my home for 27 years & Kris compassionately guided me through the process. She also arranged for ‘extras’ such as professional photographs and staging that were well worth the investment. Most importantly she kept me grounded when there were unexpected repairs and a long back log in appraisals. Selling a home that you’ve raised your kids in is a big deal, both from a business & emotional standpoint, and I wouldn’t have wanted anyone other than Kris by my side.”
“Kris Cochran is the most dedicated broker you could ever hope to find. Her work ethic is unmatched. Her knowledge of the market, area and new construction is invaluable to anyone wanting to make the right decision. She is exceptional skilled in marketing your property, with a keen eye for detail and helps bring focus to the important matters. She is honest and straightforward in her dealings. Kris provided us with the best opportunity to both sale and purchase concurrently. Her detail knowledge of each step made a complex process completely manageable knowing we had Kris in our corner. I personally would recommend Kris for your real estate needs.”
“Kris Cochran and Cochran Property Group are exceptional. She is a strategic thinker and an organized professional. She sized up our home, staged it so beautifully that we didn’t want to leave, and landed the best and wisest deal for us. She guided us through every step so we could focus on buying our next home out of state. Besides all of this – she is a woman of great integrity. She is also very friendly and fun. She is the best. You want her.”
“Kris Cochran and Cochran Property Group have been amazing to work with in both my husband’s and my search for a new home and in selling our previous home. Kris has a good understanding of the ebb and flow of the real estate market and helped us navigate the changes to close the sale of our house at a price that was fair but also higher than I was expecting. Her attention to detail and support through the process was second to none.”
“I was so very fortunate to work with Kris and her team for the sale of my house. With Kris’ experience and knowledge of the local market, I felt I was in the prime position to maximize my profit. From beginning to end, she was always available to explain the process and answer any questions or concerns. All of this made for a very easy and pleasant experience. I would highly recommend Kris and her team!”
“Kris Cochran and her team are outstanding! We’ve moved quite a bit over the years and have worked with Kris to buy and sell several homes. Kris is truly a partner in the process – she truly listens to what you want in a home (no matter how long it takes), brings a tremendous knowledge of the market (current value and future appreciation considerations) and just plain takes the hassles out of process (the agents for the buyer/seller, inspections, HOA matter, etc). Bottom line – Kris and her team let you focus on finding the right home for your family and they take care of the rest!”
“Kris repeatedly goes above and beyond the level of service I expect from a real estate agent. I’m constantly impressed by her local knowledge, ability to nail down confusing situations, and personal attention she paid towards finding a house that suited our parameters.
We are from out of town, and first met Kris as a selling agent on two of the properties we were looking at during a scouting trip. I was impressed by her deep knowledge of the area, and clear explanations of how the various layers of government mesh together to regulate and zone the region. We learned so much from that conversation that we decided to call her for our next scouting trip.
Kris helped us purchase a home that while beautiful, had a complex and poorly understood history. Kris and Julie doggedly navigated multiple regulatory bodies to fully understand the permitting status of the building, and ensure it was a sound purchase. They seamlessly organized several critical inspections of the property, and then remained onsite while those inspections took place. This gave us insight beyond the final inspection report, and allowed us to speak directly with the inspectors on site, despite not being able to be there in person.
Kris also proved to be savvy negotiator, and gave us confidence that we were making the right deal under the right terms. I felt very comfortable with Kris’ competence at every step of the process, and would highly recommend Cochran Property Group to my friends and family.”
“Kris was the perfect combination of thoughtful and professional. She went above and beyond to assist us in the sale of our home. We always felt like a priority to Kris and she was great about taking the time to present all of our options and share her insights. We would highly recommend Kris if you are looking for a realtor!”
“Cochran Property Group is very knowledgeable and always wonderful to work with! Kris and her team are great at communication which is a big help in real estate!! Very honest and trustworthy.”
“Kris made my home purchase smooth and stress-free. I was buying and moving from out of State and she was there every step of the way to assist me in all the intricacies. She went the extra mile *every* time. I am forever grateful.”
