Portland Real Estate Broker Specializing in Condos & Downsizing


I'm Chris Mackovjak (ma·KO·vee·ak)

Real Estate Broker

I'm a real estate broker licensed in Oregon and Washington. My specialty is helping clients sell their current single-family homes and downsize into condominiums.

Downsizing Specialist

When selling your house to purchase a condo, you have two sales to consider and, thus, more moving pieces. I’ll help you so that the buying and selling processes run smoothly.

Reasons for Downsizing


Having restaurants, parks, culture, community and public transportation all available right outside your front door makes it easy to stay active and have fun.

Less House Maintenance

Less time and energy spent on house maintenance allows you to spend more time doing the things you like to do.

Peace of Mind

Lock and leave without worrying. You can travel for days or months without being concerned.

My Approach

Clear Commission

When you work with me to sell your current home and purchase a condo, the total commission you pay to sell your home is 4%.


I have working relationships with contractors, cleaners, stagers, and movers. I coordinate everything needed for the downsizing process.

Community Oriented

I donate $200 on behalf of every downsizing client to your choice of one of three local charities: Portland Audubon Society, Habitat for Humanity, Oregon Humane Society.

Professional Reliability

I am a Zillow Premier Agent, a Certified Condominium Specialist, and a Diamond Member of the Portland Masters Circle, which recognizes excellence in Portland real estate professionals.


Finding your new home

I’ve helped many people buy condominiums across Portland and I’m happy to share my experience. Buying a condo is different than purchasing a single-family home, so you'll want to work with a broker who has condo experience.

Selling your house

When you’re downsizing, I charge a total commission of 4% to sell your home (1.5% to me, 2.5% to the buyer’s agent). The 4% includes a full list of services including home prep, staging expertise and all marketing. Learn more about my listing fee here.

Making the deals

Working together for two transactions (selling your home and buying your condo) allows for the best coordination, keeping transitions smooth and minimizing stress for you.

Facilitating the move

I have relationships with movers, cleaners, and haulers. Together, we’ll keep the moving-out/moving-in process straightforward and hassle free.

Chris was awesome. It was our first home buying experience so we had little knowledge of what to expect, and he held our hand the entire way answering every question we had. I would highly recommend him for your next home purchase!
