Real Estate in Hillsboro


WELCOME TO The City of Hillsboro! Hillsboro OR is located to the southwest of Downtown Portland. On a good day, the commute to Downtown Portland is about 30 minutes or so along the Sunset Corridor, commonly referred to as Hwy 26.

The City of Hillsboro is part of the Portland Metro real estate market and has a proven track record of growth and expansion since the late 1800’s.

Hillsboro is the fifth-largest city in the U.S. state of Oregon and is the county seat of Washington County. Lying in the Tualatin Valley on the west side of the Portland metropolitan area, the city hosts many high-technology companies, such as Intel, that comprise what has become known as the Silicon Forest. It is bordered by Beaverton, Aloha, Forest Grove and Unincorporated Washington County.

With the Silicone Forest centered in the heart of Hillsboro, and Intel being the heart of the Silicon Forest, Hillsboro has become both a great place to live and to work.

“Best described as an uptown hometown, this is a well planned growing community with a strong, diverse economic base. We are the high tech corridor for the state while, at the same time, farming and timber are important parts of our economy. Hillsboro is a safe and affordable community and a place that we are proud to call home.” ~~ The City of Hilllsboro

The growth of Hillsboro’s Silicon Forest has planted many global employers such as Nike, Intel, Tektronix and IBM — to name a few — into the Hillsboro landscape. This offers residents of Hillsboro the convenience of their commute to those working in these industries. Business parks and high-tech campuses are interspersed throughout many desirable Hillsboro neighborhoods so finding the right home here shouldn’t be a problem.

Local Hillsboro Farmers Market

Hillsboro has had some major renovations in the past few years, focusing on the Orenco Station area in particular. Orenco Station has a great shopping center at its heart, giving this a very local, community feel. Brownstone townhomes make this an extremely attractive area. An active Saturday Market offers shoppers fresh produce from local family farms that have been in the area for many years. Fruits of the season, and fresh greens are a main staple of the Saturday Market fare.


“Orenco Station has been closely studied nationally and internationally as a case study of transit-oriented and New Urbanist development in a suburban context. Bruce Podobnik, a sociologist at Lewis and Clark College, completed a study in 2002 that showed comparatively high levels of resident satisfaction and “social capital”, or interaction between neighbors. Transit use was also relatively high in the study”22% for commuting, versus about 6% in the region overall.”


The added feature of having the MAX  Metro Portland’s light rail train system — with many stops along the way, offering commuters a quick ride into work is another great advantage of owning a home here. Hillsboro is about one hour’s drive away for the Oregon Coast (heading due west), and heading east, you can find skiing year-round at world renowned Mt. Hood.

Work or play, the City of Hillsboro is a great place to call home!
