One of the most respected names in Oregon construction, the Robert Evans Company, can make a rare claim: 100% of its clients are repeat customers and direct referrals. Now, the 35 year old company says its time to raise the company profile by moving from Washington County to Portland's number one most visited community---the "Pearl". "We had a banner 2010 and felt it was time to broaden our services and move to a more convenient location where we can help businesses improve and grow," says Founder and President Robert "Bob" Evans. Executive Director of the Pearl District Business Association, Joshua Ryan, says, "We welcome a company of Robert Evans' reputation and history to the Pearl. Now our hundreds of businesses and tenants have greater access to the company's unique building services."

Expanding Services Despite The Economy---The Robert Evans Company played an early role in advancing jobs in Washington County with such developments as Beaverton Foods, Tinitron, Lithtex, Columbia Corp., Washington County Walnut Street Center, Momokawa Sake plant and many others. Its new green headquarters at 1505 NW 19th, offers more space to meet with clients and expand into property management--taking care of all exterior and interior maintenance including AC, heating, roof, windows, gutters, parking lots, and acting as liaison between owners and tenants. "Building owners have enough to worry about in this economy," says REC Vice-President, Anita Hettum. "We offer affordable excellence for anyone looking to build, expand, improve or maintain their real estate investment." The company is bonded and licensed to provide monthly financial statements, collect rents, pay bills and distribute owner checks. Hettum and Evans invite their Pearl District neighbors and the public to visit their new headquarters and see why this may be the most unique full service construction company to move into the Pearl:
