Haskins Realty Group is a family-owned business established by Bob Haskins over thirty years ago here in Portland. The Haskins family (Bob, Jean and their six children) have been intricately involved in every area of the business, growing up answering phones, delivering flyers, assembling signs and eventually becoming real estate agents, or actively supporting the family business with marketing and business experience.

Jesse Haskins passes the real estate exam at the age of 18 and works with his dad to sell homes.
Bob Haskins began his real estate career in 1978 and worked for several firms before coming to the realization that he needed the flexibility to try his own ideas to generate business and structure fees. In 1984 he started Haskins Realty. His first office was the corner of his living room, where the desk was wedged in by a piano. He lowered his real estate fees during a tough market with his “flat fee” and original “1% to sell” programs. It worked and he quickly became a major player in the Portland area as homes were selling rapidly. His greatest satisfaction in real estate was knowing he was meeting needs for Portland homeowners and today that passion for helping people hasn’t changed.
