"Working w/ Pam was a lesson in effective marketing. We sold my father's house in 2 months! The key is to trust their ways and it will all come together. Don't fight the force of Eugene's Alternative Realtors! They know the market. The people that make up this business are hard working and accurate. I initially chose this business because of their superior website, but quickly learned they had amazing people skills too. That is a rare and magical combination. I LOVED the Home Feed Back feature. Bottom line: This real estate company will spoil you so much that you will never be satisfied with anyone else again.
We ♥ Pam!"
What could we have done better?
"Now that I have worked w/ another real estate establishment a couple of hundred miles south of Eugene I can safely say that your approach to selling a house is superior to all others!"
Would you recommend us to your friends?
--Chérie & Beckie, First Time Estate Representative
"Everything was explained clearly from the get go. You cipher all the legal talk into layman's terms very well. I had an unusually long & scary short sale & Pam kept me calm through the whole process. Pam was always there when I needed her with a text or showing up to meet me. I don't know how you do it!"
--Jill & Eli, Homeowners
"Pam was very professional and right on top of things. Once we made the decision to sell, she took it and ran with it. She and Pat took care of everything. It was painless!! It was a huge relief to sell at close to asking price."
--Xia, 50-somthing starting a new life!
"Eugene Alternative gave us the best experience in buying and selling our home. The agents were very friendly, with customer service skills that made it comfortable to express my expectations from them all. Did they deliver. Yes the did! Great, great company of professionals to do business with!
Dave your company was great. I just love how you were able to tell me we would be able to sell, when I felt like I wouldn't. You were so positive, you really know this market!
Dave & Team Thanks so, so much. And the very best to you all!"
--Doloris, Keep in Touch!
"Professional, persistent and available."
--Nancy M Barnes, Retired Social Worker
"I liked the web presence and presentation. The communication was effective- phone calls from Dave and emails from Eric & Ingvar. I appreciated the support with maintenance issues. The quick results were also very gratifying. Thanks.
Some of the communication with the buyers over personal items- concerns were a bit redundant, but no biggy. Stop the comparables after the escrow closes."
"The no-pressure attitude. Walking us through the process as new homebuyers. The RMLS emails were extremely helpful. Everyone on the team was easy to talk to over the phone- very friendly.
We missed Pam at signing, but understand she was on holiday and hope she had a great time. :-)"
--John & Shea Beleew
"Pam is the greatest, she worked very hard for me, and went of of her way to help me get what I wanted. Everyone at Eugene's Alternative are very kind and helpful in every way, and will work very hard for you.
I can not think of anything that could have gone any better than it did with my home buying."
--Merry E. Davis, Manufacturer
"Very knowledgeable. Kept me informed & worked hard behind the scenes to get the process completed. My sale was fraught w/ challenge and Pam stayed on top of it all.
My first experience selling. Can't say I would change anything. It was a very good experience. ----Thanks again----"
--Jenny Solomon, Forester/Fireperson
"Wow. Thats neat that you guys have a youtube page. We actually got the pleasure of working with one of your agents there (Tawnya), she did a great job, and we love the home. Still here a year later. The whole process was really pain free and suprisingly quick, even for our odd situation, lol. Anyway, just thought we would stop by and say thank you again.
the eberhart family"
--The Eberhart family
"First of all, Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for everything you did for us. The Riverview St negotiations and transactions were quite bumpy & challenging but you guys rocked!!! Even though we were 1300 miles away, we had complete trust that you guys could pull off getting this property for us despite all the hurdles it presented. So thank you,....thank you.
Here are a few things we really like about your company:
5. The homegrown feeling of your business versus nationwide real estate companies.
6. Friendly, personal, go a lot of extra miles service.
7. Expertise and Professionalism.
10. Beautiful office
11. Cheerful and willing to be of service.
12. Abilities to pull a rabbit out of a hat
(obtain home from previous owner)
13. Your website
14. The soul of your company
Thank you for everything. You guys made a really great first impression of doing business in Eugene."
--The Ricker Family
"You all went above and beyond in helping me. Moving to a new state is tough but I did not have to worry about anything on this end. You guys took care of everything. I Eugene's Alternative."

--Bryan and Susan Wilson
"We really appreciated the personalized attention we received. We feel like the folks at alternative are good friends. They do all the work to make it easy to buy or sell.

--Tammy and Jeremiah
"We loved that our family and our desires for finding a home were so respected and made the primary focus of our housing search."
--Theresa Lemire & Jennifer Joslin
"You are by far the best of many realtors I have worked with. You were unbelievably patient, low-pressure, no BS and went above and beyond the call of duty on innumerable occasions. Furthermore, you are all a lot of fun to work with."
"Dave and the Eugene's Alternative team are easily the best realtor's we have worked with. They always made us feel like we were their top priority. Even though we knew Dave was busy, he never let us feel that way and was extremely patient with our questions and issues. He always got back to us very quickly.
The office has a family like atmoshpere, and we felt welcome every time we came in. It was the little things they did, like letting us ship some packages to their office, that made our move and house search less stressful.
Our past experiences with other realtors were disappointing- they didn't protect our interests, or failed to help us when the going got tough. Dave and his team were there 100% the whole time, looking out for our interests, ensureing a smooth negotiation, and helping us with last minute complications. We felt they earned thier commission many times over.
Dave is very knowledgeable of the Eugene area and its different neighborhoods. HIs knowledge helped us find the house and place in Eugene we would be happy with.
Even after the purchase, we have been in touch with Dave and the team, and they still try to help us."
--Kevin and Lewin McCarthy
"We found Pat to be professional, knowledgeable, trustworthy, easy to work with and always available. But totally rocking as well! She made an otherwise scary and stressful venture easy and even fun.
She held our hand through all aspects of the house buying process. She even met with the inspectors on our behalf, as we live out of town. Pat covered all the bases, watched out for our interests, and was by our side from the beginning of our search to the day we sat down to sign the escrow papers.
I have worked with 6 other Realtors and I have never before experienced such wonderful treatment. Your company is a great alternative, especially Pat."
--Rushiko Nishikuni & Margot Hale
"Both Eric and Dave took time to look at virtually every house in town, answer weekend and night time calls and even those that wound up involving the police."
--Brandi Cook and Paul Kuck
"This was a very difficult time in the life of our family, and from our first meeting with Dave, we felt a huge relief. The reduction of stress for both of us was significant and we are grateful."
"Since I am the most important person in my life, it was great to have a team treating me that way. All concerns addressed, all fears allayed, all questions answered."
--Kent Naffziger, Owner/Builder & V.I.P
"Generally cool, people of like mind - easy to work with, highly knowledgeable firm, but not aggressive - perfect service in a series of imperfect transactions."
--Denise Couch & Louis Olsen, Lane County Business Owners
"Friendly, easy to work with. Went above and beyond what the average broker does. Eric voluntarily went under our house twice. Prompt response to questions and phone calls. Sold our house fast! We interviewed four other brokers. We felt we had things in common with Eric and Eugene’s Alternative."
--Lori & Rex Roy, Eric Skinner’s Clients
"We liked that Dave was not pushy, he sat back and let us make our own assessments, he paid really good attention to our needs. Kept in touch with us throughout the sale and even after the sale to help us workout issues with the sellers. Was aggressive when we needed to be, getting our bid in first."
--Denise & Ron Reitman
"We felt that the entire staff was looking out for us, helping us find a house that fit our criteria. We would recommend Eugene’s Alternative! 5 months later, we are very pleased with the service and outcome."
--Emily Coonrod & Arthur Turlak

--Patty Krier & Tom Connolly, Director of Public Programs & Archaeologist/Research Director, Museum of Natural History
"I'm not from Eugene, and your initial market and geographical orientation to the city was extremely useful- I immediately quit feeling lost. The speed with which you made things happen was impressive and made it all seem so easy and direct. Also, Dave's calm confidence was itself calming to me and it was the most unstressful real estate transaction I've had."
"You guys were all very friendly and fun to work with. I appreciate your help, considerate guidance and patience throughout the process of buying my first home. I look forward to working with you again in the future and I will gladly refer you to my househunting friend."
--Thanks again, Bree Fuqua, Teacher

" Working with Eugene's Alternative - Realtor was an absolute pleasure. Because of the complexities associated with buying a house for the first time and the current "sellers market" that exists in Eugene, I started the process with a lot of trepidation and a bit of procrastination. It was with joy that I was able to find a Realtor that I felt played no games, but with a straight forwardness and clear communication guided me down the path towards homeownership. I tended to be very picky on finding the perfect house, and they were very patient and informative in showing me various homes around town. They patiently kept with me over the 6 months that it took to find my dream house. Once I finally found the house that fit my many criteria, I discovered that although it was the first day on the market there were at least 3 other bids placed. With Eugene Alternative - Realtor support and knowledge of the current realty market, financial market, and their knowledge of the other parties involved I was able to come out with the winning bid and we glided through the rest of the buying process. I have been in my house for just over a month and I am every day overjoyed to be living there. Its perfect and I am very thankful that I was able to find a Realtor that not only could I trust, but seemed to enjoy the process of helping me. Thank you"

"My experience was 100% good. Our realtor, Pam Haggard, not only did an outstanding job on finding us our dream home at our dream price, she also (at the same time) did the same for our son. I love that Pam/the company, walks you through the process from beginning to end, and handles so very many details for you to lessen your stress. Through this process we now consider her as a friend and not just our Realtor. She went above and beyond what most Realtors would have done. She had a genuine interest in getting us into the right home, and not just any home that she could just get her commission on and walk away. Pam really and truly, looked out for us as individuals, not just clients. Thank you so much!
What could we have done better?
Would you recommend us to your friends?

*Eug. Alt. gives the feeling of independent business operation, free of ultra-corporate resource/profit bias. (You guys treat people like people, not "$")
*No B.S. -You said it as it is!
Could have done better?
This was 1st time w/ realtor so have no outside experience to base "better". Overall, I'm really happy with experience."
"I really appreciated the personal attention from Dave, Ingvar, and Eric. Everyone was incredibly responsive and proved to be good listeners - all of my needs were heard and met! While I can't say that buying my first home was easy, Dave made it as painless as possible. I'm also impressed by his negotiation skills - he is kind, prepared, and persuasive, all while getting the job done without force or fear tactics. Dave remains true to the good and honest person he is."

thank you so much for the holiday card and gift. I want to thank everyone in your office for all of your help and assistance and for going above and beyond for me so many times. Everyone was a pleasure to work with and never seemed too busy to answer my seemingly endless array of questions. Your professionalism, politeness, and willingness, along with your great personalities and sense of humor helped me through the difficult and sometimes frustrating process of buying and selling a home. I couldn't have done it without your help and support.
Thank you again and happy holidays!"
"You were relaxed, courteous, responsible, intelligent and very efficient. We had never bought a home before (despite our age) and we were from out of state-- so there was plenty of room for anxiety and other various preoccupations. However, from the moment we met Pam, she was available, efficient, competent, and wonderful to work with.
We have no complaints, only praise for your company.
We liked the name of your company and we had a hunch we'd be happy with your services. We were right!

I was truly impressed with the whole team effort. I felt like a part of their family. Even after my contract was up they marketed my property and sold it not much less than my asking price.

You guys are DA BOMB! I immediately felt my interests as a seller would be your first priority and that I could "work and play well" with your team. Honesty; professional & personal Integrity; great work ethic; down to earth style; flexibility; good sense of humor; attention to detail...all these attributes in your team (combined with my own, similar stellar qualities!) made for a great selling experience. I'd work with you again in a heart beat!

You did a great job for us under admittedly trying circumstances. Fortunately we were able
to do a lot of the leg work, and you were there with technical and moral support whenever we needed you to be.
Worked out perfectly..also you were really nice, patient, understanding, friendly and caring.
You were helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean and (we suppose) reverent.
you were not hostile, rude, unkind, disobedient, glum, wasteful, cowardly, soiled or irreverent (very often.)
I felt your honesty & helpfulness through and through. Also, I felt like I was dealing with REAL people.
You were also a great source of information. Thank you!

You listened to us and took action.
You were "Over the top" professionals.
You were courteous and thoughtful.
You made a potentially stressful experience as enjoyable as it could be.
"Hat's off to you." We know we are detailed-oriented "perfectionists" for the most part; we research everything, and you were always on the same page that we were on.

Thank you so much. I'm sure your good karma will follow you.
