Real estate agents are not allowed to comment if one neighborhood is better than another or it's cultural make-up. This is called "steering".

There are so many great neighborhoods in Portland! I personally think that the Sellwood neighborhood is Great family oriented neighborhood. There is a great park that is several park blocks long that borders Sellwood Moreland neighborhood to the East and a small amusement park and bike trail to the West. The neighborhood has several other parks and a community pool. Everything is very walkable as well. I hope this helps a bit.
