Open House listings in Vancouver, WA and Portland, OR areas
People may attend real estate open houses even if they already have an agent for several reasons:
- Curiosity and Research: Open houses offer an opportunity for buyers to explore properties on their own and gain a better understanding of what’s available in the market. It allows them to see a variety of properties and assess their preferences and priorities. Attending open houses can help buyers refine their search criteria and provide a basis for discussion with their agent.
- Second Opinions: Buyers may attend open houses to seek a second opinion on a property they are considering. They may want to bring along family members, friends, or trusted advisors to get their perspectives and feedback. This additional input can be valuable in making an informed decision.
- Education and Market Knowledge: Open houses can be an educational experience, especially for first-time buyers or those unfamiliar with a particular area. By attending open houses, buyers can gather information about different neighborhoods, property styles, and market trends. It helps them become more knowledgeable about the local real estate market, which can be useful when discussing options with their agent.
- Comparison Shopping: Even with an agent, buyers may attend open houses to compare different properties side by side. It allows them to assess the pros and cons of each property and evaluate their value in relation to others. By attending open houses, buyers can develop a better sense of what they truly want and refine their preferences.
- Building Relationships: Attending open houses can provide an opportunity to meet and interact with real estate agents, mortgage brokers, and other industry professionals. Buyers may want to establish relationships with these professionals for future transactions or seek additional advice and guidance in their real estate journey.
It’s important for buyers attending open houses while working with an agent to be transparent about their existing representation. If they develop a serious interest in a property, they should inform their agent to ensure proper communication, representation, and negotiation on their behalf.

I had the pleasure of working with Troy Frei and he was outstanding. He went above and beyond my expectations to help us get what we wanted and needed. Troy always made himself available to us and listened to our needs, yet he gave us very honest and realistic feedback and suggestions. I would never buy/sell from anyone but Troy! Very dependable, trustworthy, and hardworking – thank you!
Josh Dannenmann and his recommendation to the mortgage broker made an incredible team. Josh negotiated with the selling agent for pricing and extensions getting us through many complications. My fiancé was ready to give up several times. We would never have gotten this home if it weren’t for Josh.
Josh Dannenmann and the whole team at Cano Real Estate were excellent. Josh helped us buy our home with minimal stress, speed and expertise. He did such a great job, we contacted him once again to help us sell our home. Josh and the rest of the team were caring, responsive and extremely involved. He went above and beyond and exceeded every expectation. I highly recommend Josh and Cano Real Estate.
Our realtor Megan Dodson was amazing! She was very helpful, honest, very upbeat, with a smile. She was willing to meet us and look at any home we were interested in. We were first time home buyers and she really took time and dedication to make sure the process put us as ease. Her communication was always in a timely matter anytime of the day! She really made our experience with Cano a memorable one! We LOVE our new home THANK YOU so much for the guidance and experience your company provided.
Troy was a pleasure to work with. He is very knowledgeable and closely tied to the market and other available services. The attention to detail and ongoing support are outstanding. Thank you!!!
We found Spenser Beck on Zillow one day when we decided to see 3 homes. None of those 3 worked for us but after seeing a few more, we found one we liked. He guided us through inspections for two houses, first one had too many problems but the second was perfect for us. He was patient yet available whenever we needed him. I highly recommend Spenser!
Spenser Beck did a fantastic job helping us with our new home. We went with a new construction and he was extremely knowledgeable and helpful throughout the entire year it took to build. I highly recommend Spenser!
Megan Dodson is a knowledgeable, caring, assertive agent. She’s was easy to work with and made the entire process of selling my long time family home. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell property in the Greater Clark County.
I was referred to Cano Real Estate by a friend and was happy with the overall experience. Steve Dobbs went above and beyond to help me feel comfortable selling my first home. When I reached out, I was looking to get my home on the market before I had a work trip. It was short notice and the team was able to make it happen with no complaints or excuses, they just made it work. Steve even took care of a small issue that came up while I was gone. Overall the process was painless and went smoothly. …
Megan Dodson is very friendly and great to work with. She is very knowledgeable and we trusted her with every step of the process. As first time home buyers, Megan was able to walk us through the process and made us feel informed and taken care of. She understood our timelines and did everything possible to meet them. We will definitely be using her again in the future.
