About Empire Realty

Empire Realty is a small boutique brokerage based in Portland, Oregon and The Oregon Coast.  This company was started by me, Emily Ordas.

The way I run my business is based on the golden rule.  Always treating my clients as I would want to be treated, and I have very high standards.  I intentionally limit the number of clients I will take on at a given time.  I am not a mill, or a big corporate institution.  I tried that, and it wasn't for me.  I don't believe that this approach to real estate is in my client's best interest, and frankly, it's just not my style.  I like a professional, yet personal approach to real estate.  Which makes sense, because I see real estate as an investment that is often extremely personal.

I strongly believe in quality not quantity.  I have a very active practice, and my volume is something I am proud of.  That said have and always will refuse to trade my quality and craft for quantity.  I am an advocate, consultant, and expert negotiator.  When you hire me you are also hiring a project manager, someone who you can rely on, period.  I have your back.  I want to be remembered as someone who not only helped you make an amazing decision, but supported you through the process.  Someone you trust, feel confident in, and relate to.  Someone you will work with again and again.

I work with all kinds of buyers and sellers, ranging from savvy investors, to first timers, and I love it all.  I feel that people from every walk of life deserve superior customer service in real estate, and that is exactly what I offer.  I am proud to say that 100% of my business comes from referrals.  I am an honest straight shooter, who has a great skill for translating the language or real estate to the civilian, which is essential.  I love being an educator, which is at the core of what I do.

You as the client should be informed to a degree that allows you to make big choices and feel safe making them. When you work with me you are truly hiring an exceptional Realtor.

Fun fact: I am one of the only third generation Realtors in the world!  Isn't that neat?  My mom and my paternal grandfather were active Realtors in Santa Barbara from the 1950's to present.  Grandpa is no longer with us, Mom is still active.  I am so grateful for all the wisdom that has been passed on.  What a lucky Realtor I am.  Thank you for taking the time to read, I hope we get to work together soon.
