About Brian Dessinger

I hate talking about myself, but I have bought and sold many properties over the years bought my first house at 21 in Portland. Since I grew up in Portland and can't imagine living anyplace else. Ok, Well I could see myself living in Germany, only because it's so much like Portland beer and all. I have watched Portland change all for the good. I can also offer some suggestions of places to go and things to do. I spend most of my time outdoors, jet skiing, biking, running, skiing and snowboarding in the winter. I keep very active in fun runs, IE Warrior Dash, Marathons, Triathlons and anything else that might sound interesting at the time. Call me anytime or e-mail with any suggestions you might have or might want.

Brian Dessinger purchased this townhome in 2005

Why Brian Dessinger chose Portland

I just decided to convert this townhouse from a month to month to a vacation rental. Why this Property? Close to downtown, affordable, easy access to downtown and other neighborhoods close by.

Great home!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures & description of the home are right on. Very clean & modern, close

to all areas of the city. Also right on the doorstep is Safeway grocery store, Starbucks

coffee & the Hub ( great place for casual food) . Would not hesitate to stay here again.

Excellent home, great location

  • 5 of 5

Brian's townhouse is the perfect touchdown pad while staying in Portland! Close to the bus, grocery and brewpub nearby. Lower level is good for lounging after a day around town. Kitchen had plenty of amenities. Bedrooms were comfortable and bathrooms were clean. Would be very happy to stay here again! Thanks Brian!

Brian and his home were terrific!

  • 5 of 5

From first contact to the time we left Brian was nothing but great. Before even signing on, he offered advice for so many things to do in the area. Once we chose him, he was very accommodating to our schedule.

The house itself is absolutely amazing - It is beautiful. Both bedrooms are lovely. The kitchen is spacious. 2 bathrooms upstairs (one in the master bedroom, one in the hall). And another bathroom near the kitchen.

The living room is well laid out for talking to friends. Has a decent sized TV, with a blu-ray player which supports netflix. Also, very cool is there is a chromecast so if you have an android phone you are set to play just about anything. And with the receiver and speakers there, music is a good option.

Nothing but good things to say, it was clean, quiet, and I would recommend to anyone. Also, we used Uber for nearly everything, which worked well.

Wonderful Week

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Portland and this rental was one of the reasons. We had everything needed for our 8 day stay. No problem with street parking so we didn't need to use the garage. Lots to do close by. Family loved Hopworks being within walking distance. We would definitely stay here again.

Nicely done

  • 5 of 5

This property was very nicely done. Not only was it clean and comfortable, but it was well located to restaurants and shopping. We especially appreciated that each bedroom had a full bathroom of its own. Worked great for two couples. Just one caution...street parking is easier than trying to use the garage. The alley entrance of the garage is very tight.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

This was everything that we wanted. Kitchen was well stocked; every kind of appliance available; super comfortable beds; great decor; and quiet neighborhood. Parking was easy. Location was great. Would definitely stay there again. We did have a bit of trouble with the heater thermostat controls but finally did an override on the system and manually set the temperature as we needed. The booklet provided was not easy to comprehend.
