Pacific Pro Realty

Pacific Pro Realty was voted Best Real Estate by Coast Weekend readers.

Runner-up: Lighthouse Realty, Long Beach, Washington

Honorable mention: Area Properties, Astoria

Local real estate company Pacific Pro Realty knows buying a home or property can be daunting.

“We work with people regardless of whether they’re trying to a buy $100,000 property or a $2 million property,” owner Chris LaPointe said. “Our hope here is always, ‘Client first.’”

Many of the agents LaPointe employs have deep ties to the area. Five of them are native to the Oregon Coast with diverse backgrounds that include historic preservation and work as a contractor. LaPointe himself spent years in custom home building.

When the agency opened in Astoria in 2012, it was a buyer’s market. Now it’s a seller’s market, according to LaPointe. A competitive time to be a buyer, but a very good thing if you are selling.

He and his agents have found that the history of the area draws people here.

“When they come here they feel like they’re a part of something,” LaPointe said.

The agency handle properties throughout Clatsop County.
