Side Expands Into the Pacific Northwest With First Partnership in Oregon

Just one week after announcing our first partnership in Washington, D.C., we have more news to share: Side is officially partnering with Pacific Northwest agents to create and grow their own businesses.

On January 12, top Portland, OR agent Drew Coleman launched Opt, the next iteration of the market-leading Drew Coleman Team.

Drew is a prolific, deeply experienced agent who has closed more than 1,500 transactions since launching his career in 2001. In 2020, he was the highest-producing agent at a company that is ranked No. 1 in the Pacific Northwest for average sales volume per broker. He’s also devoted to service in organized real estate, having recently finished up his term as 2021 president of the Oregon REALTORS®.

Drew had thought about starting his own independent brokerage, but the reward never seemed worth the risk — until he discovered Side.

“I didn’t want to get bogged down in all the administrative details,” he said. “And the profit margins on the brokerage side are ever-slimming. Through this partnership with Side, we can own the business and provide incredible value to our agents and clients without all those inefficiencies. Side is the operating system, but it’s our software and our special sauce.”

We could not be more excited to welcome Drew and the entire team at Opt to the Side community.
