When a person or a family buys a house, they’re not just engaging in a transaction. They’re making a decision that will change the course of their lives, their children’s lives, probably even their grandchildren’s lives. They’re choosing a neighborhood, choosing schools, choosing a place to put down roots and build their future. For most people, buying a house is the single biggest financial transaction they will ever make.

It is a time rich with emotion, hope and promise.


Knipe Realty was born of a commitment to remember how life-changing the process of buying a house is. The real estate industry has a reputation for focusing solely on increasing revenue and transactions. Jeff Knipe started Knipe Realty during the height of the real estate crisis in 2007, against all odds, because he knew a better way was possible. Today, Knipe Realty is committed to helping future homeowners with the heart of a servant. Our real estate agents are selected carefully for their ability to serve our clients with professionalism and care.


Knipe Realty is a local company with a big heart, rooted in Oregon and Southwest Washington. Our offices in Portland, Vancouver and Salem support local charities that make life better for everyone in our communities.
