Our Story


Whether you are a buyer, seller, or just have some questions you’d like answered, The Caplener Group is here for you in any way that you may require.

Our office is conveniently located in one of the most vibrant neighborhoods of Southeast Portland, which supports our ability to focus on close-in Eastside neighborhoods. By concentrating our energy primarily in this part of Portland, we are able to hone our efforts and become experts on all aspects of Eastside real estate.


A large part of what helps us stand out among other realtors has to do with our marketing efforts. In supporting buyers and sellers, we maintain a strong web and social media presence on their behalf, and also cast a wide, street-level marketing net to reach as many people as possible. These efforts include running ads on the back page of the Southeast Examiner and our newsletter mailer, helping us reach more people than anyone else in our market area. For more details on the specifics of buying and selling, please refer to sections The Buying Process and The Selling Process.


Satisfied clients are the backbone of our business.  We work hard to earn your respect, repeat business, and referrals. We enjoy staying engaged with our clients, who often become our friends.  From our back lot BBQ, to mailing out items of value, to a pumpkin on your porch in October, we want you to know that we remember and appreciate your business!


For any of your real estate needs, we would be honored to assist you and we appreciate your time in learning more about us.
