What is this class about?

 This fun and brief lunch-time workshop is brought to you by three Portland Area Natives who have helped countless people live the dream of owning a home in Portland. Brokers Jesse Penaka and Phil Evans, and Mortgage Lender Lori Means will teach you everything you need to know to successfully buy your first home, including:

  • What the markets trends are for 2022 - Should you wait to buy?

  • What loan options you have and other questions to ask your Lender.

  • How to make your offers more competitive.

  • The home buying process and how it has changed with COVID-19.

  • How much down payment is needed to be competitive.

  • How to fix your credit score and other tips to lower your payments.

  • Where and when to buy in Portland and surrounding areas.

  • What to look for in the condition of a Pacific Northwest home.



We were buying a home for the first time, and we had very limited experience. We attended the Timber & Rose home buyers workshop, and based on what we learned, afterwards we felt much more comfortable navigating the process.



Phil and Jesse are amazing real estate brokers that went above and beyond. Their home buying seminar was very knowledgeable and helped me a lot since I knew nothing about the home buying process.



My wife and I were first-time home buyers and didn’t know anything about the process. Then we attended Phil and Jesse’s seminar. Not only did we learn about the buying process, home mortgages and inspections, but we suddenly had the confidence to move forward. We found our dream home a couple of weeks later.



It is a very informative group of people, who took the time to inform me on the housing market.  They're a team fully committed to finding your dream home!
