Bend Premier Brokers and Staff Volunteer

Over the weekend, Bend Premier got to be the first volunteer group to be a part of "Keeping Bend Beautiful" following the initial shut down due to COVID-19. This volunteer program allows various clubs, individuals, and associations the opportunity to adopt a stretch of road or plot of land and improve the appearance by picking up litter, weeding and sometimes planting new plants! 

Bend Premier worked on picking up trash along 14th street on the Westside of Bend on Saturday and it was a wonderful experience. Not only did the team clean up all the trash found along the side of the road, but they also had a great time doing it. The volunteers agreed that they can't wait for the next opportunity to do their part

Joolz Offers Mideastern and Southwestern Food


A Downtown Bend fixture for many years, Joolz markets themselves "Where the Middle East Meets the Wild West".  Their blend of Middle East cuisine with Southwestern overtones creates a great dining experience that has been popular to Bendites for some time.  

As part of Bend Premier Real Estate's Adopt a Bend Oregon Restaurant during the Covid-19 pandemic, we ordered two takeout meals from Joolz last evening.  We had Oregon Beef Shawarma featuring rubbed Oregon beef, grilled onions, hummus, tabbouleh, Armenian pickles and grilled naan. We also had Chicken Kabobs over rice with grilled vegetables.  Both meals were excellent and very filling. Dessert was not an option for either of us.

Jackson's Corner

Date night is such an important part of relationships. It's time that is actively allocated to spend with those that bring joy to your life. Don’t let this quarantine dull your connection.

Lone Pine CoffeeNeed a Caffeine Fix Today?

During this quarantine it is essential to practice CDC safety guidelines, but does that mean your coffee options are restricted? Definitely NOT! Below are a few coffee establishments in Bend that are still open for take-out and bean orders. Help support local businesses during this chaotic time, and also feed your caffeine needs.

Lone Pine Roasters*

Also a shout out to Lone Pine Roasters! I recently purchased a bag of their Ethiopian Suke Quto beans. After brewing this coffee today, I can attest to the quality of this roastery. The Ethiopian beans were bursting with aromas of stone fruits and citrus, and the final product was gorgeous. Bright peach notes, with some honey, and a baking spice finish; definitely a great

New Italian Restaurant a Great Addition to Downtown Bend

Being a restaurant owner in Bend is not easy. From tight food margins to difficult customers, building a new business to a place people talk about and come back to is no easy task. Bend's newest restaurant is on track to follow that challenging path. Salute' Bend is an Italian restaurant in Bend worth remembering. 

This cozy restaurant is located in the old High Tides location, or more recently the old Citizen location on Bond in Downtown Bend across from Deschutes Brewery. This space has a strange hallway entrance that looks more like the beginning of a bad horror movie with unique lighting and a sterile feel than the entrance to a wonderful Italian eating establishment. Make your way past
