PORTLAND, Ore. (PRWEB) December 14, 2018
Cascade Sotheby’s International Realty has acquired prestigious Park Place Real Estate effective immediately. Park Place was formed in 2004 by the husband & wife team of Steve and Evelyn Rosling who bring 22 years of local expertise in the Portland Metro Area & SW Washington real estate market along with a team of 25 top performing brokers.
With the addition of Park Place, Cascade Sotheby’s increases market share in the luxury, new construction and land development sectors and enhances local presence west of the Cascades.
When approached by Cascade Sotheby’s to join forces, the Roslings felt it was the right time and the right brand for partnership: “Portland continues to grow and attract new residents nationally and internationally—the distinctive Sotheby’s brand, its global presence and sophisticated marketing platforms will allow us to readily reach these markets and further elevate our value and services to our clients.”
Park Place Real Estate, which has produced $120 million in closed sales in 2018, has received accolades from the Home Builders Association of Portland (HBA), Portland Metropolitan Association of Realtors (PMAR) and the Portland Business Journal (PBJ) and has earned a solid reputation in the community for its people, service excellence and award-winning marketing.
“As always, our strategy is to look for acquisitions that fit our growth trajectory and that most importantly bring a great team with the intelligence and integrity that mirror the way Cascade Sotheby’s does business,” says Deb Tebbs, chief executive officer, Cascade Sotheby’s International Realty. “The Roslings and Park Place bring the excellence in customer service and a dedication to advanced industry education that make them masters at serving the needs of their clients. We welcome this exceptional team to our brokerage.”
Steve & Evelyn Rosling built Park Place realizing that a company’s good name and reputation is built not just by one member but by each and every person associated with it. They now bring to Cascade Sotheby’s a team of goodhearted agents who share in their core value of honesty, integrity and trust—all brokers who are steadfast in putting their clients’ needs and interests first and foremost.
The Park Place Real Estate team now joins Cascade Sotheby’s International Realty which is on track to exceed $1.6 billion in closed sales in 2018 and continues its innovative approach to uniting extraordinary lives with extraordinary homes building on these statistics:
- Company on track to achieve $42 million in company revenue in 2018

- More than 2.5 times the market share in Central Oregon than closest competitor

- 99 new agents year-to-date 2018 representing $399 million in sales revenue
