Eric Hagstette and his family made the choice almost 15 years ago to find a new home and inhabit Portland – a choice based on nothing but a love of the city. His birthplace of Georgia will always be a part of him, as well as, his Southern hospitality, but Portland represents a perfect synthesis of urban progressiveness with natural beauty. Every day, the food, the wine, the outdoor life, and the sustainable lifestyle of the area support his decision to make Portland his home.
As your Realtor, Eric is here to guide, advise, and protect you. Any realtor can help you buy and sell real estate, but none look out for your best interests like Eric and Inhabit Portland. Whether you need a savvy negotiator, a candid adviser, or a caring advocate, Eric works hard to position every client for the best possible outcome.

He will create clear expectations for all parties and produce results that match. All with a warm smile and a firm handshake.
Most clients remark that Eric is unlike any Realtor they have ever met. It’s not just that he is a competitive cyclist, a triathlete and an outdoor enthusiast; it’s that as a real estate partner, he is composed and unhurried, without a whiff of salesy manipulation. Eric attributes his manner to his home life — with two young children and a working spouse, he knows the importance of having the perfect place to come home to. A house is your family’s retreat and haven. Choosing it cannot be rushed or compromised. When you are ready to get started, Eric will be pleased to make your acquaintance, take you for a ride around his beautiful city, maybe even offer you a glass of sweet iced tea.
I have all the confidence in the world that I could not have found a better home and that I could not have done it without you. Thank you once more for all of your patience, knowledge, kindness and advocacy on my behalf. I feel so fortunate to have met you and to have had you as our agent.
Eric is very laid back and patient, and really listens to you when describing what you are looking for. This was my first experience buying a condo unit, and Eric was very knowledgeable about what I needed to understand about this type of purchase. This helped me move with confidence through the transaction.
Eric is a good family man with a very nice demeanor and was very easy to work with. He really knew my area (Southeast) and priced my home competitively. He had good ideas on how to make my home attractive to buyers, he kept me well informed during the process, and he and his assistants were always available.
Eric was a pleasure to work with. He did a great job of setting our expectations. His integrity and knowledge of the local real estate market are top notch. He has given us excellent advice. And he has the patience of a saint. The home selling process can be pretty stressful, but with Eric that stress was minimized and our goals were realized.
What I like most about Eric is his laid back, calm approach. He never seemed pushy or rushed about our process, and he never tried to sell us on anything. It always felt like we had control, without influence, over our decision to buy. Eric has been a great resource to us even after we closed on our home by offering lender, broker, and construction contacts.
Eric was very professional and knowledgeable. My situation was very difficult and he was able to balance motivating me through the process while understanding what a rotten circumstance I was in. He didn’t sugar coat it or ask me to spend money I didn’t have; he simply laid out the process and walked me through it. I would (and have) recommended Eric to friends.
