Meet Cris E Hill


I am now in my sixteenth year in this business - wow that flew by!

I am a BSEE by degree and spent twenty plus years in the RF (Radio Frequency) and Microwave Technology industry, designing products and then migrating into team management. I loved my engineering career, but got tired of the travel and the "W2" world, plus I had a strong desire to start my own company. I spent considerable time determining what business I wanted to dive into. I had always been intrigued with the "consumer" side of real estate.  After a few discussions with a couple of close realtor friends/mentors, I was on my way!


My focus as a realtor always has been to do more on the "customer service" side of the business. To me, this is the foundation of building strong, long-term relationships. I strive to exceed every client's expectations, hopefully reducing their anxiety in the process. I know my clients appreciate this, and believe this has been one of the main keys to my success.


I am proud of all the members on my team. Karlyn is a gift. She is the team member you hear business owners talk of, so valuable, but so hard to find. Karlyn has given me the opportunity to achieve well beyond  what I thought possible. She is a huge complement and asset to the office supporting the rest of the team. Our accomplishments would NOT be possible without all of us working together. Having John and Pegi on board has expanded our opportunities for growth and success.

It is my clients that make me want to come to work each day. I am a “people” person and aim to please! Call, text or email anytime.  My team and I look forward to working with you on your next real estate transaction!

Let's start the next chapter together!

My  background in developing relationships gives me a unique understanding  of what individuals and families need. As a Portland resident since  2009, I am an enthusiastic member of the community and enjoy, soccer,  golf, travel, and spending time with my wife and three daughters. I  truly enjoy showing my clients what the Portland area has to offer.

I look forward to sitting down with you to discuss the local real  estate market and to see if I can help you start the next chapter in  your life.

Meet Pegi Cope


I am thankful and proud to now be a part of this enterprise.

Prior to beginning my real estate career in 2003, I worked in the Oregon public school system. The constant interaction with colleagues, parents and students provided me with a firm foundation for learning to work closely with others. Over the years I have developed keen listening and problem solving skills.  It has been my experience that most of us simply want to be heard. 

Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, I have a profound appreciation for the beauty that surrounds us. My deep understanding of the Portland market in addition to the trust my clients have put in me is why I believe my business has grown successfully. I value this confidence and will continue to work hard to maintain it. It is a privilege to guide and educate my clients through what is most often their biggest financial investment.  

The Cris E. Hill Team motto “Building client relationships that last a lifetime” is a perfect fit for my personal values and professional manner.  With attention to detail and commitment to service, I am thankful and proud to now be part of this enterprise.

From Hillsboro to Happy Valley, working with first time home buyers to seasoned sellers, it continues to be my priority to help others achieve their real estate goals.  It’s an exciting time to be in the real estate market and together we can have great success. Call me today and let’s get started!
