Neighborhood Profile - Richmond


Richmond, nestled nicely in between Sunnyside and Mt Tabor neighborhoods in SE Portland, is where you’ll find Home Team headquarters. We are settled amid delicious restaurants, bakeries, and food carts, fabulous shops, small parks, and residences ranging from traditional craftsman style homes and new modern apartments buildings. A far cry from what it was 10 or even 5 years ago, Richmond has experienced a tidal wave of development which of course has caused some resentment from long-time residents, but most have embraced Portland’s newest hot spot. It’s a travel destination for out- of-towners and a sought-after place to reside for the young and old.
