Sherry Ortega Principal Broker
“Bendites” since 2001, Sherry, her husband Charlie and their two amazing kids, Chelsea and Cole, have warmly called Bend their home. “It’s an awesome environment to raise a family, live your best life and enjoy the lifestyle choices Bend has to offer.” They love the year round athletic opportunities; snowboarding, stand up paddling, golfing, biking, hiking and brisk walks around the river trail. With 4 true seasons, they truly appreciate the quality of life Central Oregon has to offer.
Community involvement has always been a big part of Sherry’s life... She volunteers for Family Kitchen and an active member of PEO Chapter FL. Family time is also a priority; she adores her husband’s cooking, keeps a wickedly clean house, appreciates her early morning workouts and is the proudest Mom ever.
Staying on top of local real estate trends and cultivating strong relationships with lenders, title /escrow agents and inspectors allows her to provide her clients the most up to date information which she feels is crucial in helping them make informed decisions and enduring investments.
Originally from California, Sherry graduated from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo with a degree in Business Administration/Marketing Management. She moved to Kauai and worked in the hospitality industry. Inspired by the people, community and culture of this beautiful island, she soon found her niche in selling real estate. It’s the trust and partnership she cultivates with her clients that makes each transaction rewarding.
I am proud to say that Real Estate runs in the family and I offer Santa Barbara, California and Maui, Hawaii partnerships and expertise!

Sherry, you are a wonderful person and a great agent. So glad you were there to represent us.

We were able to find the perfect little home. Even though we had questions and concerns with the property because it was built in 1922, Sherry got answers to all of the issues quickly and thoroughly. She did an absolute perfect job and I would recommend her to anyone planning a move to Bend!Denny & Nancy
My wife and I bought and sold a lot in Bend, thru Sherry. When buying the lot, she was patient and eliminated lots she knew we had no interest in. When it was time to sell the lot, we went back to Sherry and she was great. There was no pressure, she was in close contact, and made the process easy. I would highly recommend her.Chris & Leah
Sherry was amazing to work with on purchasing our lot in Tetherow! We can't say enough about how positive an experience we had. She spent the time with us to understand the Bend area, provided her expertise on value, drove us around, set us info, and just was a pleasure to work with. We count her as a friend and highly recommend her as an agent and bend real estate sherpa. Thanks!!!Eliot & Tracy
We have closed two properties with Sherry, and both times she was very responsive and responsible throughout the process. She gets things done, and that is what you need in today's market.Janelle & Russ
After listing my home for quite a while, I re-listed with Sherry and she was able to sell my house quickly. We were very pleased with Sherry's professionalism as well as her hands-on approach to selling of our house.Janene
Can't say enough about the expertise and personal service that Sherry brings to her work. She is responsive, patient, thorough and very understanding. We have purchased two homes with her assistance and with each she has exceeded our expectations. We have referred a number of people to her.Judy & John
I highly recommend Sherry! We were first time homebuyer and very so clueless. Sherry walked us through every step. I would have never imagined the home buying process to be so smooth.Kindee & Steffan
Sherry was particularly helpful in helping me get Mom’s house ready for sale, lining up a coordinator, estate sale person, landscape person, cleaners, handyman, tree removal person, all in short order. She personally planted flowers at the house. At our house she even once mowed the lawn. She hires a professional photographer and gets all the marketing info on line and conducts a showing to other realtors. She is very thorough, cautious and ethical on the representations about the properties. She accompanies showings by other real estate people whenever possible and gets customer responses when she is unable and stays in touch with them following price adjustments until the prospects have left the market. She conducted at least three open houses, paid for an insurance policy on appliances and equipment . She was always quite prompt to respond whenever we called and left a message.Bob T.
Sherry was absolutely the BEST agent to work with. She was so incredibly knowledgeable about the real estate market in Bend, and was so thorough in everything she did. My husband and I looked at one house that ended up falling through due to water issues, Sherry took the time to thoroughly investigate the problems and even when down to the city to ask for further information regarding sewer/drainage etc. She always went the extra mile and was happy to do it. We ended up finding the perfect house in our price range thanks to Sherry's help. I couldn't recommend a better agent!!Ellie & Jeff
Sherry, Thank you again for all your hard work, persistence, and going 'above and beyond' to get this property sold.
Where to begin? Sherry was the consummate professional and a joy to work with throughout our real estate purchase. She was patient as we waited for the perfect place. Of course, she found it! She was always responsive and her knowledge of the community paved the way for us since we came from outside the area. Her list of contacts and references helped us immensely. In addition, she continued to be available to us after closure. We have total confidence in Sherry and know you pleased to have her represent you. Welcome to your new home!Louis and Jacqueline S.
Sherry helped our daughter find her first home in Bend Oregon. She is friendly, professional and went out of her way to assure everything went as smoothly as possible. Sherry had several recommendations for other professionals such as painters and repairmen to help get my daughters new home into perfect condition. She also helped us with a small detail after the closing. She is an excellent real estate professional and I highly recommend her.Devonne & Deiter
Sherry could not have served us better and were grateful for her support. She continued to impress us with her attention to detail and knowledge and expertise within the industry and our local market. We have used Sherry twice in the last couple of years and would not hesitate to use her again and again.Susie & Dan
We hired Sherry in mid 2020 when we were searching for a home in Bend from New York. Being across the country, we needed someone we could trust to navigate the crazy market with enough patience to help us find the right home despite the incredible lack of inventory. After much (much) research, we absolutely made the right choice with Sherry Ortega, and would highly recommend her to anyone searching for a new home! Sherry was very responsive, well educated and experienced in the market. She offered a lot of great suggestions in different areas to consider. Once we figured out exactly what we wanted, she mailed postcards and letters to potential sellers, and tapped into all resources available to try to find fresh leads. When we finally found a home that met nearly all of our checkboxes, she helped us craft an offer that got the deal done (despite an onslaught of other offers). We genuinely believe we made the right offer and are so happy with the end result. Finally, Sherry is one of the genuinely nicest and trustworthy brokers we have ever dealt with, and her ability to remain patient with our nearly one year long search was outstanding. We never once remotely felt like we were being pressured into a transaction that was wrong for us (and she helped us steer clear from houses that would have been terrible for our needs, which were higher priced than the property we ended up purchasing). Thanks Sherry, for all your hard work! We so very appreciate it.
Totally honest and hard working. No fluff. Knowledgeable. Will do what it takes. Awesome family! Spent endless hours driving me around until we found the perfect spot. Gave great referrals with designers and tradesmen. Helps manage the place when I'm gone.Heather & Keith
