We bought a home in Bend this year and were fortunate to have Dana working for us as we pursued a bank-owned property. Our last home purchase was in 2005, so we had no idea how the industry had changed. We quickly learned that we needed a super-competent broker who knows the territory. That was Dana Furlan. During our six-month search, we made offers on two homes. Our first offer was rejected by the bank, then the home went to auction and back to the bank again. Dana tenaciously followed the process, using her professional network to find out what was going on and keeping us apprised of the situation. She was responsive to our every phone call and email, getting back to us right away. Meanwhile, she showed us another house that turned out to be a better fit for us, and we made an offer. This home, too, was bank-owned and required the sharp attention to detail and timing that Dana provided. Even after we made the decision to buy the house we now own, Dana learned that the first house we wanted had come back on the market, so she told us in case we wanted to reconsider. The fact that she would jeopardize a closing to make sure we knew all of our options showed a high level of integrity. We were quite impressed! We stuck with our final choice and are very glad we did. We love our home and our neighborhood, and we give a lot of credit to Dana for getting us there. We highly recommend her to anyone interested in real estate in Bend!

We worked with Dana Furlan when we bought our house in Bend, Oregon. When it was time to sell several years later, we went right back. Dana is trustworthy and answered our questions promptly and honestly. She helped us set a fair sale price, and within two days, we received a full, cash offer. We recommend working with Dana Furlan for real estate needs without any reservations. She is very professional.
Given all that's in the news about the housing market these days I was really dreading listing my house and going through the process of getting it sold. Dana's knowledge, expertise and support make this a breeze. When she said she thought the house would sell quickly I didn't believe her so I was shocked to have three offers within 4 days of listing. People are stunned when I tell them how quickly the house sold and that it sold for significantly more than the asking price. She certainly does know her stuff!
In real estate, Dana Furlan is the consummate professional. She works hard for her clients – both Buyers and Sellers, and she gets the deal done.
We just closed on our house in Bend yesterday, and was so thankful to have Dana as our agent for the purchase! She called me back within the hour of me reaching out to her and has been in constant communication ever since. She gladly answered ALL of my questions about the process and was really helpful when it came to negotiating our deal. She is fast, thorough, and detail oriented. It was a great home buying experience, and she went above and beyond to help us out from out of town. Thank You Dana!!!

It is with great pleasure that we recommend Dana Furlan as your Realtor. She has a sunny disposition and an uncanny ability to go with the flow. Our tastes and needs changed many times during our house hunt and she was always positive and never showed any frustration with us changing our minds. We always looked forward to our time "on the road" and felt she understood what we were looking for even before we did. We feel that she represented us very well in the offer/inspection/closing process. She was always punctual and very professional. We may have started out being a client but truly feel we have a life long friendship with Dana and consider her a part of our family. When it comes time to sell our home and buy again we will without hesitation call Dana.
Three weeks, two days, two offers, SOLD! Dana knew the market, helped us price the house right, gave us tips on staging and took "model-home" photos. She always followed up with other realtors after showings, gave us feedback and was available whenever we had questions. We have bought and sold many houses over the years, and Dana was by far the most exceptional realtor we ever worked with. From start to finish (she even joined us at the signing!), she was professional, helpful and we give her our highest praise!

Dana Furlan goes beyond the normal task of a Realtor. I arrived in Bend, was in town for 5 days, and left buying a house. She worked on this task daily and her diligence made my dream come true. I have lived in several places and have never had such an honest, helpful and powerful professional listener meet my housing needs so well. No one could go wrong with Dana looking into their housing needs so well. She is heads above all others I have used over the years. Her interest did not stop at the closing but she assisted in the contracting needs of the house. Bless her for her ethics.

I was referred to Dana Furlan by my cousin. He has known her for quite some time. I was extremely impressed with how efficient she was. When I told her what I wanted, she didn't weigh me down with homes she liked; she listened to my needs and sent me exactly that. When I did get the home that I am in now, it had just come on the market and she wanted me to see it that day. It was on a Friday when most agents take off at noon. We went to see it, wrote an offer and it was accepted on Monday. Through the whole process I really felt that she was doing what was needed to make it a smooth process. I would never go to anyone other than Dana Furlan when looking for real estate. She is by far superior than anyone I have ever used. Don't let this gem slip away. Call her and you won't be disappointed.
Dana was originally referred to us by two close friends. Dana did a great job for us. She knew we were planning to do a 1031 Exchange but were uncertain about the timing. Dana worked with us throughout the year long process. We ended up buying a house that was no longer on the market. Dana approached the Realtor and we were able to negotiate the purchase. We juggled two sales for the 1031 and Dana kept everyone in the loop. The purchase closed on time without a hitch! We enjoyed working with her and would not hesitate to recommend her. She absolutely does what is needed to get the job done. Having Dana be our advocate was the right decision. I am confident that when I refer her in the future the client will be as happy as we are.
We have known and worked with Dana Furlan for over eight years. We have sold and purchased two homes with Dana. Not only did we sell both homes in a matter of weeks, we also were able to find the perfect home for our current needs. She goes beyond the duties of a realtor, and we have worked with others in the past, so we know how to tell an excellent realtor from your average realtor. We trust Dana and know she will always perform at what's best for us! She continually gave us personal attention, from beginning to the end of our real estate transactions. Dana is well connected with the community and understands and knows the housing market. When asked who we recommend for a realtor, we do not hesitate to answer, Dana Furlan.
