Aryne and Dulcinea both possess the necessary cadre of skills a potential buyer and seller need. No question was unanswered and every uncertainty was addressed by them and their deep team of seasoned professionals. I highly recommend these two and look forward to working with them again.
Aryne and Dulcinea have been incredible to work with. We have purchased a house, a condo and sold a piece of land with their help, and would definitely use them for future purchases and sales as well. As a tag-team they make scheduling meetings and site visits super easy, and they are very willing to listen and discuss random crazy ideas we come up with. They offer great advice and are also fun to hang out with!
We worked with Aryne mostly when buying our home and she was FABULOUS. She sent us a lot of houses to consider, and would reply promptly when we wanted to look at them. She took care of all of the little details that we wouldn't have thought of, and was able to help us find a house in Portland with our small budget! We loved how knowledgeable, kind and ready to help she was, and we feel like we can still reach out to ask her questions. When Aryne was out of the office, Dulcinea was equally as kind and responsive. Should we ever decide to sell our house to upgrade, we will call them first!
I had a great experience working with Dulcinea, she helped me buy a house during a stressful time and she was always positive about everything. Her follow up client care is exceptional!
From the beginning, Aryne & Dulcinea made the entire experience of buying our house amazingly seamless. They were always available to answer random questions, extremely knowledgeable, and very flexible with our schedule. They connected us with an incredible financial supervisor who worked with us to build up our credit, making purchasing a house possible. Aryne meet me on weekends and truly made me feel like I was her only client. Since buying our literal DREAM HOUSE (2 years ago), Aryne & Dulcinea have not only stayed in touch, they have sent us gift cards to new places that open up in our neighborhood, have come to work events & fundraisers, and even dropped off a wedding gift this past month. As I type, we're on our way to get a FREE DONUT from Doe's Donuts (our latest post card perk from A&D). We can't say enough about these two
"We recently had a wonderful experience working with Aryne and Dulcinea to sell one house and buy another. We interviewed several different realtors and companies and chose Living Room and Aryne and Dulcinea because of their professionalism, warmth, and familiarity with our part of town.
Dulcinea had our house staged beautifully and sold it in a weekend for far above asking price. She also helped us get into the house that we wanted, in spite of some tricky shenanigans on the part of the seller's agent. She really partnered with us to see both transactions through, and we felt incredibly supported by her. Aryne was there to help in the moments that Dulcinea had to be offline. Because of their partnership, we never had a moment where we were left unaware or unsupported in our transactions. Dulcinea and Aryne helped make a very stressful time for our family fun and much easier than it could have been. If we ever decide to move again, they will be our first call."
“Dulcinea and Aryne have helped us buy two places now, one house and one condo. For both, they were incredibly helpful, available and willing to listen to our needs. They even followed up at tax time to send over our closing statement so that we didn't have to go find that! The little touches make a huge difference. I will definitely be referring them to friends and family, I love working with them!”
"Today I’m writing this from the kitchen of my dream home. A house so amazing that I still pinch myself practically every day to be sure it’s real. It is everything I could wish for and more -- and I am so grateful to Dulcinea and Aryne for helping me make it happen. Dulcinea does real estate like she does everything else – with integrity, creativity, and grace. If you are buying or selling a home (or both), you cannot go wrong with these ladies."

"We weren't sure what the process of buying our first home together would be like. We were ready for big challenges, confusion, and uncertainty. Instead what we experienced was Dulcinea's warmth, enthusiasm, and constant availability. Dulcinea immediately charmed us by asking all the right questions about what we wanted in our forever home. She knew what was most important to us and reminded us of it as we visited houses. She gave us a sense of calm and order during a stressful experience, and when we needed an advocate, she made everything happen behind the scenes. However, we always felt in the loop. At the heart of the process was really good, consistent communication. We needed to know everything, and that was what we got. She answered every question no matter how small or how late, gave us great feedback and guidance on our offers, and made sure we got what we wanted. Throughout it all, Dulcinea was just as thrilled about us finding our house as we were. And in the end, we got our dream home. We can't stop referring our friends to Aryne and Dulcinea, and we are so grateful they were the ones we asked to help us find our perfect place."

“We bought a new home and sold our old home with Aryne and Dulcinea at our side. They were very professional and astute to business issues. We felt all transactions were well executed. More than that, we truly enjoyed working with them. They are warm, caring people who care about their clients and their community.”
“I have long dreamt of owning my own home but it always felt like a long-distant, dreamy hope; something that might happen when I could win the lottery…After just a few short and incredibly revealing meetings with Aryne and Dulcinea I found out just how possible it was. And in a few short months I moved in to my first home.“
“I could not be more satisfied with my selling and buying experience with this dynamite team! I had a very unique home that needed a lot of work and I also had a lot on my plate at the time, but they knew just when to push and just when to back off. I worked mostly with Dulcinea who was my absolute cheerleader--I had unfailing access to her encouragement around the clock; Aryne brought so much intelligence and back up the to the process as well--they are complementary duo! Working together, the house went through a complete transformation and the open house was a sensation: I had SIX offers in less than a week.
I had a time crunch to find my next home, and Dulcinea was amazing, asking all the right questions and letting me lead her into uncharted territory. With her guidance, I ended up with the the most darling home that my family and I adore. I would recommend this stellar team to anyone. I especially appreciated the space that they held for my emotions during the whole process; I felt really cared for in their hands. Real estate can be scary and they made it into a positive experience...that's powerful stuff.”
“I had so much fun working with Aryne and Dulcinea. I ventured into investment properties and wasn’t sure if the market was for me, but they made me feel comfortable and confident. With tenacity and tons of knowledge, they were able to help me find a profitable rental. Aryne and Dulcinea know real estate through and through and guided me through the process taking care of me each step of the way. I would refer anyone to them, and plan to use them in the future.”
“In our current business and in my past life with a national homebuilder (Pulte), I’ve worked closely with well over 50 agents. You and your team handles this frustrating property with diligence and patience beyond what I’ve seen and what I expected. And I can honestly say you (Aryne) and Dulcinea are the first agents I will go out of my way to recommend."
"We bought our home with Dulcinea and Aryne this last summer. It wasn’t something we were planning and was very last minute. So I was surprised how fast Dulcinea was able to meet with us and how responsive she was through the whole process. Summer is one of the busiest times in Real Estate and to have her return my calls and stay in touch the way she did, with all her clients, was amazing. Once we found a house and started the process of buying the Sellers and their agent were horrible. Dulcinea didn’t let that get in the way and did everything she could to follow through with them, keep us in the loop and she dealt with their attitude like a champ! Her positive attitude through the whole event was wonderful. Her dedication is remarkable and she has great vision. Many Thanks."
“I know several real estate agents in Portland who are experienced and successful, but when I was considering who would be best to serve me in finding a home for myself and my two children Aryne and Dulcinea were my top choice. Their expertise and passion for helping their clients is like no other team. Finding a home that would suite my family and yet was still in my price range seemed and impossible task. Aryne and Dulcinea were dedicated to searching high and low and really understood my specific needs. After a long 9 month search, we found the perfect home. They were even instrumental in connecting me to neighbors! Throughout the negotiation process and closing, Aryne and Dulcinea were by my side. And after my move in, Dulcinea helped me figure out the layout of my main floor. Her vision of how to best use the open floor plan of the main space was life saving to me. She is truly gifted. I would recommend Aryne and Dulcinea without hesitation to anyone buying or selling real estate."
“I loved working with Aryne and Dulcinea when we were looking for our new home. They were fun and excited to help us in the search for a home and neighborhood that would be a good fit for our family. They were prompt, knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and professional and I loved working with them. It made the challenge of looking for a new home much more fun, knowing that we had confidence in such a great team of real estate agents in Aryne and Dulcinea.”
“Dulcinea and Aryne were there for us every step of the way through a four month search for our home, from writing offers, to negotiating and inspections, all the way through closing. They were persistent, knowledgeable and professional and we trusted that they always had our best interest in mind. We appreciated their honesty and most of all their positive attitude that helped us keep our chin up and keep going until we found the perfect place! We would highly recommend Aryne and Dulcinea to anyone!”
“I needed to sell my house quickly, and with the advice and help of Aryne and Dulcinea, my house sold immediately after the realtors’ open house. I’m happy to recommend Aryne and Dulcinea to anyone who needs a good realtor.”
“We chose Aryne and Dulcinea because they are such experts about inner NE Portland. We are very happy to have worked with them...they make a fantastic team! They are well-researched and experienced, plus a please to work with. They were able to give us a realistic understanding of the comparables in our neighborhood. I loved that they actively helped with staging the house, and it felt like all the work was done the day we hit the market...and it didn’t hurt that they sold our house far above asking price in a weekend!”
“Aryne and Dulcinea were a great support through every step of listing and selling our house. Dulcinea’s assistance with staging was amazing. The house price Aryne recommended was right on target for encouraging buyers.We sold the house in 4 days!!! The assistance they gave in evaluating new homes was so helpful and I feel like I could still call upon them for advice about our new home.Thanks to Aryne and Dulcinea, every step of the way was smooth and easy!"

“I sold my condo in a short sale, and Dulcinea and Aryne helped me navigate every step of that harrowing process. They were beyond wonderful to work with: helpful and supportive in ways I couldn’t have anticipated, deeply knowledgeable and professional, and a joy to be around. Though I don’t recommend the short sale process itself, if you must do it, please let these amazing women help you through. They are total pros—I cannot recommend them highly enough. Thank you so much, Aryne and Dulcinea.”
"We bought our first home earlier this year with the incredible help of Aryne and Dulcinea. They worked with us to find the perfect house that met our needs and assisted us in navigating the process of becoming first time homeowners. Dulcinea always had speedy responses to our many questions, thoughts or concerns. She was also a great resource as we went through the arduous process of renovating our newly purchased property. Thanks to her amazing expertise and support we now have a wonderful place to call home!"
"As anyone knows who has been through it, purchasing your first home can be a stressful process. My spouse and I were on a tight schedule due to an expiring lease, and with the housing market in Portland, needed a team to help us make quick, educated decisions in order to not miss out on “the one”. We just couldn’t find the answers to our questions, or houses meeting our needs with several realtors – until we met Dulcinea & Aryne. They listened to what we were looking for, and provided us with great houses as soon as they came on the market. It was great having a team on our side, because if one person was not able to shows us a home, the other made themselves available - which provided us with priceless time to make decisions. Dulcinea & Aryne were the perfect advocates to have during closing, as they made inspections & escrow as seamless as possible. I would recommend this team to anyone, as we couldn’t have asked for anyone better."
“Dulcinea & Aryne and the Living Room Realty crew were absolutely amazing. My best friend recommended Dulcinea, and my first meeting with her started off with her giving me a big ole welcoming hug!!! That wonderful warm experience continued throughout the entire process of buying my first home. Dulcinea never missed a beat; she promptly got me out looking at houses, and answering my plethora of questions. Once I found my dream house, she eased me through the process of making an offer and eventual purchase, with the utmost care. My brother in Atlanta happened to be in the process of purchasing his new home at the same time, and his journey was quite a struggle. When I told him about my wonderful experience, he said “Sounds like you have a fantastic team helping you!” , to which I replied “Why yes lil Brother, I do!" My little pup Dexter and I are so happy with our new home and I cannot thank Dulcinea enough.”
Dulcinea was wonderful! My husband and I had a less than pleasurable experience with our last realtor, so we were not in the best of spirits about trying to find someone new. The first meeting we had, Dulcinea listened to what we wanted, our concerns, and walked us through the whole process. Not once did we feel pressured or rushed to find something, she was patient and understanding the whole way. In the end we found the right house and she was there to explain and walk us through everything. We are very excited about our house and even more pleased that we went with Dulcinea, we highly recommend her!
