My husband and I have lived on the East Coast our entire lives; however, our children set up their lives in beautiful Oregon. After eleven years of visiting every part of this state, we decided to begin our own West Coast adventure, sell our Delaware home, and make the cross country move to Bend.
I began to search for communities that both my husband and I would find desirable. Bill contacted me, and our correspondence began. Although our time frame was uncertain, Bill was more than patient. He was never pushy - just a stable source of information and advice. A year later my husband and I were ready to pull up stakes and move, but COVID-19 and a house selling deal that fell through delayed us. Again, Bill was a calm, reasonable voice.
When we found our Bend home, Bill’s assistance exceeded our expectations. He kept us informed, attended our home inspection, made suggestions, worked with the seller’s agent, and made the whole transaction seamless.
We have been thoroughly impressed with Bill’s work ethic, integrity, and kindness, and we would wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone in need of a dedicated realtor. He is the best!David & Teri R
It was great working with you on this transaction. You are an absolute professional and made this an absolute pleasure. I’m totally impressed. Thank you so much for everything – your professionalism and diligence throughout were exemplary and greatly appreciated! I hope we get to work together again soon!Silvia K
Working with Kathy was a pleasure from beginning to end. Having contacted Kathy online from out of state, I was reliant on her depth of knowledge of all the areas in and around Bend. She helped us understand the microclimates in each quadrant of the area, the pros and cons of many locations and properties, and reviewed all the listings that interested us. Within 60 days of our first trip to Bend, we had found a fabulous home and closed escrow. All went very smoothly, and we are grateful for her patience, tenacity, organization and great follow through. I can’t imagine our process going through more easily, and would most definitely recommend Kathy to both current Bend residents, and also to those coming from out of town who may need extra guidance. Thank you again Kathy!
Rachel isn’t your typical realtor. She is what Bend is all about. She carries that friendly confident air of a person familiar with all that is good about Bend. The outdoors, the sports, the river, the mountain and the amazingly helpful attitude of the folks that live in this community.
When we met her, we connected immediately. She sensed our frustration with the selling/buying obstacles, took charge coordinating with other realtors and made it all seem so much less complicated. She was with us every step of the way, right down to signing the loan documents. She kept us up to date daily and we never had to look anywhere but to her during the entire process.
We have purchased a lot of homes in our time but this experience was the best..... thanks to Rachel Greenwald-Rhoads.John & Rita
I've known Dan all my life and he is very honest and hard working and always chooses the right thing to do in any situation. He will stick with a job until it is done to his high standards and will not let a person down. I highly recommend Dan Cardot.Susan L.
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.
I found Stephanie to be helpful, experienced, engaged in every step of the process, optimistic and energetic. She left no stones unturned in her effort to help. Details were always handled. She did not cut corners.Bob H.
We were impressed with Sheri’s knowledge of local real estate and warm welcome. We asked her to represent us in selling our home in Bend and she has been an immense asset. Sheri provided an extensive marketing plan and spent many hours promoting our home. We followed her recommendations and have been very pleased with the resulting sale of our home.Rob & Vicki B.
Dan is very knowledgeable and extremely helpful. He is above reproach and a Godly Christian man who will serve you well. I highly recommend him.Stephen W.
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.Kim M.
My wife and I recently worked with Sheri to successfully sell our family's home in Bend. We had purchased this home with Sheri's assistance some years ago. When we decided to move to be closer to family, there was no discussion about who we would contact to sell our home. We called Sheri. Within hours of initially writing Sheri, she had a market analysis in our hands, and the next day was sitting with us building a strategy to sell the home. She guided us each step away, with strong attention to detail to insure that we knew what was happening at each step of the way. She made sure we got the best possible deal with no unexpected issues along the way. There's no better recommendation we can give to Sheri than to use her services again. We would have used her to buy our new home if it had been in the local area. Cannot recommend highly enough.Jim & Tiffany S
Kathy was great to work with: professional, available, thorough, and knowledgeable. We sold our home quickly and painlessly. I've bought and sold many homes in central Oregon, and had both good and bad experiences with brokers. I'd rate our association with Kathy very high up on our list of the former.Beth and Kent W.
Kathy was amazing to work with in both the sale of one home and the purchase of our next, at the same time! This felt like a tricky path to navigate but Kathy kept us on the right path with all of her experience to pull from. Her knowledge and availability gave us the confidence that we were in good hands. Her research, advice and negotiating skills helped us to achieve our dreams and secure our new home. We have and will continue to recommend Kathy to anyone looking to buy or sell throughout the area!Alice and John I
As an out of town property owner, all I can say working with Pattie gives us a peace in mind and she is always there when we need help.
We used Sheri to purchase our home in Bend and can not say enough good things about her. We were living out of state at the time which makes purchasing a home extra daunting, but Sheri made the whole process as painless as possible. From our first meeting, we could tell that she took being our advocate very seriously and that she had our best interests at heart. She is dedicated, extremely thorough, trustworthy and VERY good at her job! You would have a hard time finding a more honest Realtor in the Bend area.Joe & Dawn
Kathy came highly recommended to me by a friend who is also a broker and someone I trust implicitly regarding real estate. My friend was spot on about Kathy in every way, “She is another DYNAMO....You will really like her...and really goes above and beyond for her clients.” Kathy sat down with me and explained how she works, what she could do for me as a client and asked me what I wanted and needed. More importantly, she actually listened to me too. She was on top of every transaction and was flexible and responsive every time something new came up. And at the start of the Covid pandemic that was quite a lot. But most of all she was honest and I truly felt she cared about doing what was right for me as a seller.Rosemary B.
I have worked with Tina Roberts over the past several years, back in 2011 to sell my home as well as in 2013 to purchase our current house. Both buying and selling can be hard, Tina always made the process smooth and was very helpful along the way. Her knowledge of Central Oregon is apparent and her determination to complete the sale is evident. I will definitely use Tina again if we decide to sell or purchase in the future.Emily S
We are settled in! Chaka & I love the daily morning hikes along the canal & through the common areas. The HOA now allows dogs off leash as long as they are in control. We walk twice a day here and I take him to the dog park every day. We spend more time outside than ever. I’m not going to get the electric fence right away. With my daughter’s wedding coming up in June and a large IRS bill I just paid, I will have plenty of immediate expenses.I hired the moving co., the guys you recommended when I called you in a panic. They did a great job helping me move! They were perfect gentlemen & we did two moves (1 & 1/2 truckloads with U-Haul’s largest truck). They set up my beds, installed the appliances & lifted all the heavy furniture which took the pressure off my back. I love this house and the area and am appreciating it more each day. My neighbors are very friendly. I now know the whole history of this house. One invited me to dinner and another baked fresh, hot cookies one night. You really did a great job for me and I sing your praises to anyone that asks. You are very professional, thoughtful and caring person. You helped my buy a house on a shoe string & made the whole process a pleasure rather than a chore. I will always be grateful to you for your help. You and your Lender Mike make a great team! I do want to buy you a lunch or dinner to express my sincere appreciation. Let’s get together soon.Rich
'Thank you for referring Bill to us for the sale of our condo. He was awesome! He more than met our expectations as a real estate agent. His professionalism and communication were over the top. And, of course we are so happy the condo is sold.
Thanks again for sending him our way.John and Nancy
Thank you Kathy for such a great and personal experience in helping us buy a first home for our youngest son. You have made this process seem so quick and smooth. I would recommend you to anyone who is looking for a great realtor!Ramona N.
Excellent broker! Goes above and beyond all expectations. I would recommend her for any of your real estate needs. Buying or selling she will get the job done! Not only did she help sell my home but found me a new one to purchase. Honest, reliable and professional!Jerry K
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
As newcomers to the area, we were SO lucky to have found Kathy Hovermale. Having lived in Bend for many years she was extremely knowledgeable of the area. She was also a very patient and friendly representative of Bend Premier. We had several short visits from California over a period of many months and Kathy was always on time and ready to go when we were. She did a tremendous job of showing us the entire area, helping us out with positives while not being afraid to give her honest opinion if she thought something might not work for us as well. After many visits to the area we finally decided on a new construction home on the north side. Kathy’s diligence in keeping up with the paperwork, answering questions and writing addendums when necessary was incredible! I can’t recall EVER having to remind her of anything; you just knew it was going to be taken care of! She made sure everything was handled and we closed on the exact target date despite my mortgage broker’s constant need for one report after another. We’ve spoken several times since our purchase and couldn’t be happier with our decision on our new home or our choice of realtor. I can say with confidence that Kathy Hovermale and Bend Premier were an excellent choice!Jeff R & Corinne L
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
I am a Mortgage loan originator and I work with agents every day. I know the good and the bad when it comes to how the Realtor works with the financing side. First, this transaction did have its sticky points as most transaction do. At these times Bill’s reassurance and strong negotiating skills provided peace of mind. My girlfriend and I had absolute confidence that our needs were considered and represented. I know this because I have proof, we got what we wanted. This was: an accepted offer at a fair price, a home with a great resale value, resolution on the points that we were in disagreement with the builder, access to the home as it was being constructed at all times, and lastly when things got sticky, Bill took over and got it done. My Lender stated that never had to chase him for information, he was available and prompt with their requests. Now more than ever, you need an agent whom you can trust, one that has a team of vetted individuals who have proven their competency and professionalism. Bill has this and more. His skills and life experience will assist you in finding the right home, and then transacting this purchase smoothly. In the event that the unexpected happens, you will meet this with guidance and resourcefulness of one of the best agents in the business.Ruth & Chris
“Stephanie, Thank you so much for all the work you put into our new house purchase. Everything you did was above and beyond. Thank you very much for helping to make this process very smooth and seamless, it’s not something we do every day.”Kim & David
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
Hi Kathy - Don and I want you to know that we loved working with you, and are so appreciative of the work that you put in to make this happen! Thanks again for a wonderful experience!
Chloe & Don
We recently bought a home through Debbie and were very happy with the entire process. After showing us a few houses and getting an idea of what we were looking for, she called around to her contacts and found a house that was a great fit for our needs but wasn’t yet listed. Debbie was very effective in working within our tight timeline and helping to complete the purchase. We found Debbie to be very knowledgeable about the Bend market; its neighborhoods and inventory as well as current pricing and trends. She is committed to her clients and gave us great personal service. We would strongly recommend Debbie as a Realtor to anyone who is serious about buying a home in the Bend area.Paul & Kathy K.
In the middle of February we started to search for a second home in La Pine to prepare for retirement. It had been over 30 years since we had purchased a home and we had no idea what to expect. The Internet had not even been developed and it was a different world back then. We started with some online searches to see what was available and placed a few inquiries on properties that interested us. We were shopping for a home in Oregon from the comfort of our Southern California home. Stephanie was the first to respond and asked more about what we were looking for. After giving her our dream list she began sending us listings she felt met our needs. She kept in touch with us to see if she could answer our questions. We had lots of questions and many emails and texts were exchanged over the following weeks.
Stephanie didn't hesitate to go to a few properties that interested us to take pictures to give us a better feel for the homes. Suddenly the right home showed up. It wasn't long before Stephanie helped us write an offer and negotiate a deal that was soon accepted. She helped us find a local lender for financing. Once the ball started rolling it was a fast and easy ride to closing the purchase. Stephanie was there every step of the way with suggestions and contacts necessary to get the job done. We are proud to be homeowners in La Pine now. Four months after our search began and six weeks from offer to closing couldn't have been possible without Stephanie at our side. We've worked over 30 years in the mortgage industry and have not run across a professional like Stephanie. She's a 12 on a scale of 10 in our eyes and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend her.
Thanks for making our dreams come true Stephanie!Bob & Kathy
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
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.Anne H. Washington DC
This is the 9th house that we have purchased using Real Estate agents and you have been the best. You listen well and were most honest about the features that we needed to consider with each house that we saw, both good and bad. As Buyers from out-of-state, you represented us very well as an Accredited Buyer's Agent.John & Donna
Around 6 months ago my husband and I had saved up a enough money to start looking for a home. I work in Health Care and I was told about the Homes for Heroes program and an affiliate by the name of Jacque Roberts. This organization recognizes Heroes, first responders, health care workers, education, military and veterans
We contacted Jacque and registered for Homes for Heroes. Jacque immediately contacted us! She explained the importance of getting pre-qualified. That was our first step and was no hassle at all! We then started the process of looking for homes. Jacque scheduled appointments for us, working around our work schedules and our baby girls naps! Jacque educated us on the process, inspections, appraisals, credit reports etc.
We found the home we wanted to make an offer on, submitted our offer, it was approved, closed in 40 days, and we received our Homes for Heroes check of 1260.00 within 10 days!
The process was fun, educational. Jacque's communication was great!
Who gets money back when they buy a home? We did! I would highly recommend Jacque Roberts as a Broker!
Diann & Harry B.
“Dan exceeded my expectations in every way possible. His integrity, knowledge and professionalism are outstanding!”Debra L.
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!Duane P. & Maryclair J.
Thank you Stephanie, for the work you did on the sale of our property. Did not expect it to sell this fast, but glad that it is now done. Thank you again.Angie
"My husband and I were in the market for a vacation home in the Bend area when we met real estate agent Kathy Hovermale. Kathy took the time to assess our needs and spent many hours helping us find a home that is just right! Her patience and diligence really paid off and we are now the proud new owners of our dream home in the Shevlin Park area. Kathy was easy to work with, friendly, and knowledgeable. We are so grateful for all of her assistance in helping us obtain our forever home and would recommend her to anyone looking for their dream home in Bend!"
Matt & Judi
After all that we had been through we are truly blessed to be in our new home. We thank God everyday for the blessings, but we must also thank our real estate agent, Tina Roberts of Bend Premier Real Estate. We met her here almost 2 years ago when we wanted to look at few properties to see what type of homes were available. We explained to her that we were not ready to buy a home at that time, but she stayed with us and provided helpful information all during this time. We closed escrow on this house in just 3 weeks, which is extremely fast and she was right there to help move things along. She suggested and went to the building department to research past building permits and other potential issues. She did an amazing job for us. On the day she brought us the keys, she gave us this personalized cutting board, dated for the day our escrow closing. Thank you Tina for all you did.
Having enjoyed Bend from previous visits but relocating from the opposite side of the country, I had general knowledge of the area yet lacked specific insight into the particulars of this unique real estate market. Through informative and patient consultation, Bill helped me to close this gap, providing invaluable advice through every step of the process, enabling me to secure the property that best fit my needs. Beyond delivering trusted advice on real estate, Bill continues to be a friendly source of the kind of practical information only found in a long-time local resident, easing my transition to Bend in numerous ways.Aaron B.
Because we were so new to the area, we had many questions and insecurities with the thought of a major purchase like a new home. Bill was beyond gracious and knowledgeable with answering all of our questions. He understood our concerns with the local housing climate, the practical aspect of our personal needs and the emotional aspect with our need to make a house our home. We cannot express the level of integrity that Bill offers to his clients, we felt as though we were in the best hands possible. He walked us through the entire home buying process. We are a household of two working professionals without a lot of extra time to offer, he was there for every small detail that needed to be addressed. We are forever grateful for Bill, not only did he help us find a house in Bend, he helped us find the perfect home for our family.Jennifer & Tim
Rachel Greenwald Rhoads has given my wife and I a new understanding of how hard a good real estate broker really works, and how invaluable they are to navigating the complexities of purchasing a home from a distance of thousands of miles. We recently purchased our future retirement home in Bend. In addition to enabling us to find our new home and providing support as we negotiated the purchase, Rachel helped us deal with bankers, inspectors, various local tradesmen, local agencies and more. At every step in the process, she provided clear and honest guidance. She made what could have been a daunting process, comfortable and easy. We consider her a friend, and would recommend her to anyone seeking to purchase a home or property in Central Oregon.Jeff and Deborah Levin
I am impressed with Dan's knowledge of real estate and the Central Oregon market, but I am more impressed with his ability to guide a client through the process with grace and professionalism.Marilee L.
My husband and I just purchased our first home using Sheri Hilton, with Bend Premier Real Estate, as our agent. Sheri impressed us both from when we met her to when our house closed! Her communication and follow through was consistently professional and timely. Sheri was a reliable source of information, always seeking out a thorough answer to our questions and providing multiple options when presenting us with a decision to make. Sheri was very well educated about the real estate market. Sheri catered the homes she showed us what we told her was important to us as individuals and as a couple. In addition, Sheri has a wonderful personality and was genuinely interested in us, and cared that we found a home that we loved. Our experience was very positive and enjoyable. We would both highly recommend Sheri to anyone looking to buy a home.Daren & Gabrielle A.
My wife and I had the privilege of working with Kathy last August. Her knowledge of Bend and all it has to offer was fantastic. We had just wanted to get an overview of neighborhoods within Bend, but Kathy found the absolutely perfect house for us. She gave us a tour of the town and then focused on finding the neighborhood that fitted our needs and lifestyle, and then finally found the perfect house for our family. She was wonderful to work with and 2 months later, she is still providing asistance to us in preparing for our move to Bend. We highly recommend Kathy.Pat & Joanne C.
When looking at a cross country move and all of the challenges that go along with such an event, employing the best real estate agent to sell our Bend home was essential. We found that in Sheri Hilton! Sheri is the utmost in professionalism. She truly gives her "all" to her clients. We were in awe of her energy and her desire to make herself available to us at all times. Sheri's marketing strategies along with the professional photography gave our home tremendous exposure. Sheri Hilton is an incredibly hard worker that is always in keeping with the best interest of her clients. She remained in constant contact with us throughout what can be a very stressful process. If you are considering selling or buying a home in Central Oregon, we highly recommend Sheri Hilton! She is most certainly one of Bend's best!
Bob and Patsy Carroll
We wanted to sell a unique acreage property knowing that was going to need a defined, professional sales/marketing approach. The property was the ‘remainder portion’ of a larger acreage sold years previously and price expectations were high. Positioning was important since the property had the potential to be developed and subdivided. Would the buyer be a developer or would it sell to a residential buyer who desired a house on a large, spacious lot? As interest in both possibilities developed, Bill stayed with us through many twists and turns while always moving us forward to a reasonable conclusion and a successful sale. Bill delivered the effort and professional skills needed to complete the transaction.Matt H.
Cutting to the chase, Elizabeth is fabulous! She's organized, timely, and does what she says she'll do. She's also fun to work with. Being from out of town I relied on Yelp to help find a realtor in the area and wow did I get lucky. We've been working together for a few months now trying to find a commercial space. With a great location and signed lease now in hand I couldn't be happier. Now we're entering into the residential search and I know that we'll get into our ideal home with Liz on our side.
Whether you are in the market for commercial or residential, I can't recommend Elizabeth highly enough!
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
Elizabeth exceeded all of my expectations! I was looking to purchase a home in Bend as an investment opportunity. Being my first time looking for a house of this nature and the fact that I live in Washington, I needed to be sure I found a realtor that I could trust and would keep my best interest at the heart of their work. I also needed someone who could give me guidance, while leaving the decisions to me. Elizabeth is very professional, knows 'her stuff' and will go the extra mile. She is tireless and yet, not at all pushy. She is an excellent listener who focused her efforts on helping me achieve my goals, is incredibly organized and was efficient with our time. Through phone conversations, emails and screening properties online a good portion of the process was completed without my needing to travel to Bend. Once in Bend, the viewing of homes was streamlined and efficient. After deciding on a house, Elizabeth was extremely instrumental throughout the purchase process, as well as connecting me to local contacts for future needs.Carolyn S.
Elizabeth is one of the best realtors I have worked with. She’s helped us through 3 transactions; all closed on time as scheduled with no surprises. She is thorough and well prepared. Also fun to work with.Dean S.
Finding a property that meets the hopes and means of those who stumble upon this corner of Oregonian heaven requires patience, insight, resourcefulness and no little diplomacy from a realtor. Rachel proved equal to the challenge and more. A thoroughly reliable professional who carefully listened to our wants, efficiently worked the market to find possible solutions within our budget and was entirely dependable and trustworthy as she successfully guided our quest. A true partner, we now count Rachel among our friends in this, our new home in Bend!Gavin & Tina
My Husband George and I were 100% pleased with Colleen's services. Thank you for going above and beyond your call of duty by staging our home. You also gave us creative ideas to make our home " appear nicer". And you also made it convenient to sign papers by delivering the documents to our home.. Colleen you were thorough with this transaction! We are both pleased with your professionalism and your kindness.
Janet & George
A quick note to say that you did a great job in helping with our purchase.
Purchasing a property from 2,800 miles away can be a somewhat stressful event. We found you to be very pro-active in moving the process along as well as looking out for our interest every step if the way. You were always available to help and you continue to help well after the closing. A true professional Thanks so much for going above and beyond and keeping us on track. Lots of moving parts! We would highly recommend you to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home.
Mike & Kari S.
Kathy originally sold another home we had in Bend, and we were so impressed with her professionalism and local knowledge of the area, we decided to use her again when it was time to buy. We were not disappointed! She went up and beyond on several issues and is not beyond rolling her sleeves up to help in any way. We felt completely taken care of in her capable hands, and I would highly recommend her to anyone, buyer or seller, looking to get into the market.Dawn K.
Sherry, Thank you again for all your hard work, persistence, and going 'above and beyond' to get this property sold.
Very happy with Sheri’s help in selling my parents house. She gives lots of good advise, information and is very knowledgeable. Thank you so much Sheri!Ed & Elizabeth S.
If you are looking at purchasing a property in the Bend area then we highly recommend that you do not do it without Kathy! She is incredibly knowledgeable about all the details most agents would not even think about. She fought hard for us in every way and left no stone unturned! We can't thank Kathy enough for helping us find and purchase the perfect property, we really do not know how we could have done it without her. We give Kathy 11 out of 10 stars!!!Karen W. and Cody L.
It was an absolute pleasure working with Tina in trying to find a house in Bend. With the challenges in the market, we relied on her knowledge of the area to help us determine what was possible for our budget. She was always on top of new listings and returned calls and texts quickly. We definitely felt as if Tina had our needs and interests at heart at all times. She was also very patient when we had to have our child along in toe. I would strongly recommend Tina to anyone looking to buy in Bend.Laurie S
Rachel Greenwald-Rhoads is an exceptionally professional real estate agent to work with. We appreciated her promptness, patience, and attention to detail. She really made house hunting in Bend an enjoyable experience. Rachel not only helped us find the best home for our family, she has also has become a trusted friend; She belayed our precious children up high on the rock wall. We would highly recommend Rachel Greenwald-Rhoads for all of your real estate needs.Jeff & Becky
Jacque is fun to work with, she was great at finding options within our price range and size range. She was easy to get ahold of any time of day and was quick to get everything moving forward. She helped us every step of the way! She also connected us with Homes for Heroes which I'd never heard of, but ended up getting a significant amount of money from just because I am a nurse buying a house. Jacque made sure everything went smoothly and for the issues that did arise she went to bat for us. We have our perfect house now and couldn't have done it without her!Tye J
I moved to Central Oregon with no place to live of my own, I met up with Jacqueline while at work one day and she asked a few questions. While looking for a place of my own I explored the option of buying a house, she went out of her way to find places with in my range, she even helped put me in contact with a lender. When I decided to rent for a little while she even suggested places to look. All through the process she would check in on me and my son and really got to know us. I refer her to anyone who is looking because she is so polite professional and patient, she will keep looking and looking for you even if it takes months. Jackie will stay in contact and in your specified price range. She is also great with kids and patient so if your a single parent like me it makes it a lot easier to bring your child along for the walk through. Thanks again.Becca G
Elizabeth is very accommodating. Our family was in the area for my husband's interview. Even with our short visit, Elizabeth made it possible for us to really get to know Bend and browse some properties. We felt like we were being welcomed home with her hospitality and kindness. Thank you Elizabeth and hope to see you soon!L.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
I called her to request a showing on short notice and she was willing to drop what she was doing to meet me and show the property. She worked hard to find out the needed information and was very helpful in negotiating the price down. She continued to help with inspections, even after closing.Dennis H.
Very responsive to our needs. We were in a time crunch due to a 1031 exchange. Jackie found houses to meet our goals in time to meet the 1031 exchange rules. Very knowledgeable of the area we were interested in. A very pleasant experience working with her.FryNoel
Thanks to Kathy Hovermale for all she did to buy our new home in Sunriver, OR and to sell our home in Bend, OR She was on top of everything; very professional and always available to us. Our move was spontaneous during the worse winter Bend has experienced in 100 years. Kathy was very patient and kind while our family made the transition. We love our new home! It was a complicated contract. In all but we bought, moved and closed in 10 weeks! Amazing!Rachell M.
Howard and I would like to thank you for all you did in selling our home in Redmond. You were very knowledgeable, professional, responsive and very thorough with all the details in selling our home. You were always looking out for our best interests and advising us on how we should proceed. Our chance meeting almost 5 years ago turned out to be a great one. We will recommend you to any of our friends or relatives as someone who knows the Central Oregon area and will work very hard for anyone she represents. Thank you.Karen and Howard P
This is the 9th house that we have purchased using Real Estate agents and you have been the best. You listen well and were most honest about the features that we needed to consider with each house that we saw, both good and bad. As Buyers from out-of-state, you represented us very well as an Accredited Buyer’s Agent.John & Donna
Dear Diane and Bob,
thank you for all your help in selling our home and condo. We appreciate so much your professionalism through every detail of the process...from our first meeting to discussing listing our home, to the final details of closing. At all times, you made us feel as if we were your most important clients, even though we know you were dealing with many others at the same time.
We are very happy with the timing of the sales which enabled us to make the move to Arizona. We're slowly getting out new home put together and transitioning to our new lifestyle. Life is good.
Thanks again for helping to keep us sane.
Diane & Robert

Tina is the best real estate agent I have ever encountered. She helped me to buy a house and then later to sell it. She also helped my daughter do the same. She is a joy to work with and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for real estate in the Bend area.Jan M
I would like to let anyone know what a pleasure it has been having Kathy Hovermale as my agent. I would recommend Kathy to anyone who likes to be kept updated to everything that is going on. If I had any questions I knew I could call Kathy and get a answer. I would love to have her for a friend forever.Robert and Joan F.
Through it all, Debbie remained very patient and helpful. She started by showing us a fairly broad range of homes in different neighborhoods with a variety of styles. As it became clearer to us where we wanted to be, she tried to find us a home or lot in our desired neighborhoods. However, she also continued to show us homes she thought might to appeal to us, even if they were not in our preferred areas. We told her at the outset that we did not want to live in a gated or golf community. But we also wanted a decent sized lot with privacy and trees. As she showed us options, it gradually became clear that we needed to be a bit more flexible in our approach. We put in offers on three homes, none of which worked out. That turned out for the best, as we ultimately bought a cool house in Awbrey Glen, one that Debbie probably knew we would like. Although we ended up spending quite a bit more than we had anticipated, we are both very excited about the home we have bought. During this long process, Debbie always made time for us during our visits. She was also accessible via phone and email in between visits, and her follow up was exceptional.

We struck gold with Stephanie as our realtor! She started working with us in March of 2018, when there was only a slim possibility we would move from TX to Bend, OR. The interaction started via email and from the beginning she showed a genuine, caring warmth through her correspondence. She said she would work really hard for us and she was true to her word. As the slim possibility of a move grew into a good chance, we set up an in-person meeting with her, as well as a couple other realtors, just to be thorough. Before we even flew to OR, we canceled the meetings with all the other realtors because none of the other realtors gave us the personal attention she was giving us. Most of the time we had to “home shop” remotely from TX, Stephanie not only live video recorded walk-throughs of homes we were interested in, but she also drove through the surrounding neighborhoods while live video streaming for us! It was important to us to find a neighborhood with children so we could mimic one of the best things about our TX neighborhood. Stephanie knocked on doors to chat with neighbors, and went back to neighborhoods when school busses were dropping off kids after school! Talk about going the extra mile for a client! She listened so well (which can be nearly impossible with a talker like myself ), and really understood what we wanted. She explained all the unfamiliar terminology, processes, and important features of each home that are unique and new to us in Bend’s climate. She pointed out positives, but also possible concerns to us in each home, which helped me really trust she had our best interest at heart. Stephanie is extremely patient! Due to our family’s circumstances my husband and I had to fly up at different times. She spent an incredible amount of time showing both of us around on each of our trips to OR. On our final trip we brought our kids, who are a handful on a good day, but they were exhausted from travel and the time difference. They were in all their glory of wildness and even though I was appalled by their behavior, Stephanie was amazing with them and they too loved her. In short, Stephanie is an extremely knowledgeable, caring, warm, hard-working, and trust worthy realtor. It was a pleasure to work with her and such a blessing to have stumbled upon her. I highly recommend her to anyone in need of a Bend area realtor!Nathan & Monique M.
I have purchased and sold two homes in the last two years using Tina and found her a pleasure to work with. She is professional, knowledgeable and very responsive.John F
Nice bonus to a real estate transaction to make new friends!!Scott S
Jacque helped me find a property in Bend, OR. She was very knowledgeable about the area, the new and old subdivisions and areas, the general and specific property features and appropriate pricing. She was able to connect me with a property rental manager as well. She was an absolute delight to work with; very pleasant and upbeat. I would recommend her as my first choice in Bend.Cyrus G
Tina has helped my husband and I purchase 2 homes, as well as sell one of those, and we will definitely use her for future real estate needs. She is professional, reliable, knowledgable, personable, and makes you feel as though you're her number one client. Our negotiations were always quick and painless, in what can be a very stressful time. She worked around the clock to make sure our deals progressed seamlessly, and was very helpful in addressing any concerns that arose. I highly recommend Tina for all your real estate needs, particularly in this incredibly competitive market.Sarah & Trevor
Sherry, you are a wonderful person and a great agent. So glad you were there to represent us.
Stan and Darlene
Diane & Bob- When we came to Bend in December of '13 looking for a house to buy, we didn't know anyone. You were the first people we met and immediately felt we had found true friends. Selling a house in Roseburg and buying a house in Bend was challenging and stressful. Yet you were there for us every time we needed help and a calm voice. Your guidance and devotion in helping us through the difficult process ultimately brought us to our goal. We couldn't be happier with our new home and our new life in Bend. Thank you for being there, understanding our dream and bringing it to fruition. If ever asked, you will be our recommendation for great agents in Bend. You have brought smiles to our faces and friendship to our hearts.
Bob & Eiana P.
I am happily satisfied with Jackie Roberts and the entire process of purchasing a home here in Bend. She made the process very easy, understandable and I was most impressed with her attention and dedication to "keep the ball moving". We closed in a short time, we never had to wait and wonder what was happening. I would highly recommend Jackie, it was a pleasure working with her.Christian L.
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
Rachel has now helped us with two property purchases in Bend. She was the realtor on call the first time and everything proceeded in an easy and straightforward manner. We were so impressed that when we decided to make a second purchase, it was Rachel we turned to to make it happen. And we didn't make it easy for her! We equivocated, we searched, and we changed our minds repeatedly. We made her work! Through it all she was patient and helped us sort out our needs and desires in such a way that in the end, we found just what we were hoping for. The first time was by chance; the second time was by choice. We would recommend Rachel as a realtor to anyone.Dave & Shelley
We feel very fortunate to have found Denny Osborn of Bend Premier Real Estate in 2015. Since meeting him we have used him for three different property purchases, and we couldn't be happier with his approach and the results. He assisted us with our main home purchase in the middle of the holidays and historic snowstorm 2017 and he never missed a beat. We also purchased 2 other investment properties represented by Denny before & since. We've experienced many other realtors in the past 12 years, and have never met anyone as swift, trustworthy, competent, straightforward, professional, no-nonsense and easy to work with as Denny. He seems to know precisely when to step in, and when to let you alone with your decision making. He answers every call, and text very promptly and he even provided support after the transaction was finished when technically his job was done. We will never use anyone else again, and we are comfortable recommending him to our parents when the time comes for them to need a realtor.
He exceeds all expectations. Thank you Denny, we wish you the best!Beth
‘We would like to share with you some of the specifics of what made your services so valuable to us, why we view your services so far above the average realtor, exposure to which is almost always a disappointing experience.
We have never had a realtor actually listen to us the way that you did. You treated us as if we knew the property better than you. Believe it or not, this is unique in the realtor world. You listened; and you showed us you were listening by actively engaging in a dialogue with us about the issues we were raising.
You immediately locked on to the uniqueness of our property. You got it instantly, and started brainstorming with us about the likely characteristics of the buyer, the geographic scope of the relevant market, and the marketing approach most likely to get the property in front of the buyers with the right characteristics.
All of which leads to the third unique trait: a marketing plan. I had never actually heard a realtor describe a marketing plan. Another way to say it is that the only marketing plan I had ever known in realtor world-world was “put it in the MLS and sit back.” You not only described a plan for the property, but also made it clear to us that you had marketing experience. This was exactly what we thought was needed: a pro-active marketing plan designed to get our very unique property in front of the right buyers, none of which likely lived within 100 miles of the property. This marketing plan would undoubtedly require the use of technology.
We knew from our daughter’s recent home buying experience that the majority of buyers view the property extensively on line before walking though the front door. You not only understood that, but also had the skills, experience and sophistication to back it up.
But you didn’t run over us with your skills, you allowed us to be involved in the pricing of the property, deferring to our judgment even when it differed from what the pricing detail was suggesting. Your work up on comparable properties was outstanding. The level of detail both gave us confidence in you and your skills and made us more realistic about the value of the property.
There’s more too, of course your colored brochures and marketing plan made clear that you were spending money on marketing our property. Your frequent trips to property also sent a message that you were truly working on our behalf and not just sitting back with another MLS listing.
All of which led to our property being sold in about 50 days, including the month of December with its well-known dead-time for the Holidays to a buyer living more than 100 miles from the property.Gregg & Jackie S.
Sheri sold our house and we are really jumping for joy!! Call 541-550-6129.Daniel and Denné B.
We have bought and sold many homes over the years, and Tina is the most helpful and cordial realtor we have worked with. Her attention to detail is remarkable, and response to our requests always timely. The showings were well organized by area, geared to our preferences and productive! We highly recommend Tina.Vickie & David M
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!Greg B. & Beth M.
Working with Kathy was a wonderful and pleasant experience. She truly has her client’s best interest in mind. Moving from another state she made sure we knew the difference from our previous state in regards to how things are done in Oregon. She helped us find a competent lender and we found our home within two-weeks. Kathy is very professional and she kept us in the loop during the whole transaction. As a retired Realtor I highly recommend Kathy for your real estate needs.Karen K and Davis H
From the start Jacqueline was amazing. She is such a hard worker and we felt like she was always on top of things. On top of all that she is kind, honest, interested and therefore a pleasure to work with. We intend to use her as our realtor again in the near future.Z User
Tina Roberts went above and beyond helping us to find our perfect lot. During several of our Bend visits, she provided guided tours to help us get a lay of the land. She facilitated our purchase meticulously from start to finish, as we currently reside out of state. We can't say enough about the personal attention we received and Tina's excellent communication before, during, and after the sale. She's a real estate Rockstar!C. S.
Working with Colleen was a great experience from beginning to end. I initially contacted Colleen when I was looking for a new home. She really did her homework and showed me a variety of homes and areas in Bend. Colleen is almost always available and very flexible with her schedule. A few months later, I decided to sell my home of 11 years and she helped with every aspect of the sale. Colleen helped stage my home, even providing accessories and small pieces of furniture. She held multiple open houses and advertised frequently. I would definitely recommend her to others.
Tracy L, Bend
The best experience with a Real Estate company I’ve ever had. Jane was simply awesome: knowledgeable, professional, hard working, and responsive. Also very caring about my vision and lifestyle and understanding how the property fit into that. Ultimately led me to the perfect property and price for my family. I’ll be a lifetime customer. Thanks Jane!Tom P
As first time home buyers we thought we would have to fumble our way through the process. But working with Debbie proved to be the best route we could have taken. She helped to make buying a home much easier then we ever would have thought. Debbie was always available to help answer questions along the way. She shared her knowledge with us on everything from options of lenders to work with to companies and qualities of the homes we looked at. The best part was that we gave her a list of what we wanted in a home and she was able to tell almost right away the types of homes that would interest us. I feel like she really listens to what a buyer is saying in order to give you the best options on the market!
I can not express in words how incredible Stephanie was as searching out and securing our home for us. We were operating on a very short timeline and could not travel here to house hunt. Stephanie did all of the leg work (literally) for us. She walked and videoed property after property for us and did not give up until, within a week we found the right house, had our offer in. Just over 30 days later we were moving in. She communicated with us every day, multiple times daily, keeping us updated on every aspect of the process. Simply amazing. I heartily recommend Stephanie to assist you with your home purchase.Kevin G.
Quality representation! Joe is pleasant, knowledgeable and effortful. We are fastidious decision makers, and Joe met our needs with consistently prompt answers and updates. Additionally, Joe has good insight about the Bend market. We will be referring friends to Joe for real estate interest in Bend.
David & Amanda P.
We happened upon meeting Jacque through sheer luck with the Homes for Heroes program and we are so grateful we did! She was an outstanding realtor, and has become a good friend. Initially we weren't sure we wanted to list our home and move, so she provided us with information and absolutely no pressure. After some time we were ready to sell, and she got us listed quickly. Her communication throughout the process was great, and she kept us informed and was quick to provide information while letting us make our own decisions with zero pressure. When purchasing our new home she was on top of everything. She worked around our crazy work schedules, and helped us thoroughly inspect our favorite homes before putting in an offer. Jacque walked us through each step of both the sale and purchase process, and of course was there at signing and quick to visit when getting our keys. Jacque is a genuine and kind person, and is unbelievably knowledgeable about every step of selling and buying a home. It truly feels like a good friend is walking you through what is typically a stressful process. She makes it easy and is always available to answer questions and help you think through decisions. If we ever decide to sell again Jacque will be our first call!Mastashibby
Dan, thank you. The pleasure was and has been ours. Our plans are to keep in touch and pass on our reference to those we know are looking to list their home. We have already mentioned you to two other couples that are looking.
Buying a home made easy! As a first time home buyer the process seemed very daunting. Despite my inexperience Jen and Robert from Bend Premier Real Estate not only took me in as a client but made me feel like family. Through patience and consistent communication they found my dream home well under budget and in a timely manner. The process was extremely simple, educational, and exceeded all of my expectations. They put me in contact with the right people and instilled confidence they entire way. This dynamic duo deserves high praise for their teamwork and making each client feel like the top priority.David C.
Elizabeth has been a fantastic realtor. Her knowledge of the area was paramount in selecting the right neighborhood for me. She was always quick to respond, and her expertise, contacts, and assertiveness in the closing process made buying the house almost stress free. I would recommend her to everyone.D. Pumpa
Mike just wanted to send you a note thanking you for all the help through the process you made it easy and helped make decisions that we may not have made on my own but it all worked out very well thanks again.Mike and Deanna
Colleen's strongest area was communication. She updated us at least twice weekly, if not by phone, then by email. she kept us informed. It was obvious to us that she was putting a lot of work into getting our lot sold. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone.
Carlene & Alan S.
Sheri worked with us for many months; our needs were a little out of the ordinary! Sheri needed to not only find the “unicorn” we were looking for but then negotiate extensively on our behalf. Thankfully Sheri is both tenacious and articulate; she dealt with the seller and us with ease – no mean feat! All through the process Sheri was professional, personable, on time and exceeded all of her commitments to us. We truly enjoyed every interaction with her, many laughs and smiles were shared. My wife and I especially appreciated the additional information Sheri provided us to ensure we could carry out our due diligence. Her process knowledge is clearly built on years of experience. In any complex transaction communication is key and this is the area Sheri truly excelled, always available, always responsive and we were never left wondering. We highly recommend Sheri as a realtor.Daren & Kate
My wife and I met Sheri at an open house when we were starting our home search in Bend. We immediately hit it off over our shared interests in the outdoors and shortly thereafter began our home search with Sheri’s help. Sheri helped us narrow down our search options by determining what was important to us, then sent us updates on every house that met our criteria until we were ready to visit homes in person. She showed us homes all day long until we found one that met all our criteria. She researched comp’s overnight and guided us through the process to put in an offer when we were ready. Sheri negotiated a great deal for the price, along with the conditions. Once we began the purchase/closing process, Sheri really shined. We interacted with people from banks, escrow companies, inspectors, insurance, and others. Sheri guided us each step of the way to make sure that we got everything done correctly and on time. Without her, we would never have gotten through the process so easily. It was taxing, but with Sheri guiding us, we made it through the process with flying colors. We cannot recommend Sheri highly enough. She was a pleasure to work with, has great insight into the market, and her attention to detail is second to none. We would recommend Sheri to all of our friends buying in the future in this area.Jim and Tiffany S.
Thanks to Sheri's expertise and guidance, I am, now, moving into my new Bend home. I found Sheri to be a knowledgeable advocate who maintained a proactive position in guiding me through this complicated process. She has my sincere appreciation and wholehearted recommendation. Thanks, Sheri!Sandy D
From house hunting to signing the final documents, Kathy was professional, communicative, and a wealth of knowledge!
If it hadn’t been for Kathy we would never have found our home. We had this house on our radar three different times and the listing just didn’t appeal to us, so we kept crossing it off the list. After touring all of the homes on our short list, some more than once, we thought we had come up empty handed. Then Kathy brings this house up again, saying that that we really should go take a look at it.
When we pulled up I thought, ok let’s get this over with... But the minute we crossed the threshold, we knew, we just knew we had found home. The energy was inviting and the layout is perfect for us. We are so grateful that she encouraged us to go see it. We can’t thank her enough for the guidance and wisdom that she brought to the process. Kathy’s knowledge of Bend’s various neighborhoods was extensive and she really did guide us towards the perfect home.Kathryn
Thank you for all your help in selling our home and condo. We appreciate so much your professionalism through every detail of the process....from our first meeting to discuss listing our home, to the final details of closing. At all times, you made us feel as if we were your most important clients, even though we know you were dealing with many others at the same time. We are very happy with the timing of sales which enabled us to make the move to Arizona. We're slowly getting our new home put together and transitioning to our new lifestyle. Life is good. Thanks again for helping keep us sane.Diane & Robert B.

Jacqueline Roberts is the perfect mix of professional and yet down to earth. She is available and searches for our needs. Would recommend her for sure. Jacque has researched numerous homes for my husband and me to find the right one. Jacque is detailed in her search and an excellent communicator.Sherri S
We met Sheri while exploring an opportunity in the Bend/Redmond area. Sheri was very good at listening to our needs and finding homes that matched perfectly. Communication skills are 5 star! A solid all around person with a wealth of knowledge of the area. Highly recommend you chose Sheri if you are in the market to buy or sell your home.J. Foss
Bre and Cate make a great team. We couldn’t have gotten a better feel for the distinct character of each part of town because of their knowledge, tireless energy, and dedication touring us around various locales. We were able to pinpoint the exact place we wanted to live. When the perfect house opened up in our favorite neighborhood, the offer, negotiation and transaction were handled very professionally and smoothly. We highly recommend Cate and Bre!Jay and Jane M.
Most phenomenally awesome and skilled professional I have ever worked with. Diane presents a whole new perspective on what a realtor is capable of. She gives extra care about whether the house matches the buyer, determining exactly what the buyer wants. She stays close to the entire process of financing and closing, making sure everything goes well.Brian W.
"Being a first time buyer, the whole process was new to us. We couldn't have been luckier to connect with Kathy! She was prompt and so on top of things throughout the entire process. She found exactly what we were looking for and was so proactive that she had any situation, both good and bad, taken care of before we even knew they had occurred. I don't think this purchase could have gone any smoother without her. Even after the process she has stayed in touch and we will recommend her to anyone and everyone!"
Kathy Hovermale was a pleasure to work with when searching for our family vacation home. We had a long list of what we wanted and didn’t want and weren’t sure exactly where we wanted to buy- Sunriver, Bend or Sisters. It took a little time to feel out these areas. Kathy patiently guided us through these areas until we found the perfect home. Kathy went above and beyond for us. She made adjustments to her personal travel plans just to accommodate our house hunting trips. All and all, a successful transaction thanks to Kathy’s expertise.Tracey N.
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
We worked with Stephanie for a long time. She did not push us into buying anything. We felt very confident she was there for us but let us move at our own pace. We felt we could trust her. That means a lot if we were to do it again, she would be the one we would want to talk and work with. We spent many hours on the phone. She put a lot of time and energy into making everything happen. We would give her a 10 in many ways. She was honest with us and has kept in contact since we bought our house. We feel we gained a friend I am sure you won't be disappointed whether you are selling or buying, she will do you a good job!Jack & Ruth
I was originally connected with Kathy by filling out a contact form online. Her phone call back to me was received immediately upon my clicking "submit". Given this was right in the middle of Superbowl Sunday, I knew right away that we were dealing with a professional. Kathy is friendly, down to earth, high energy, and trustworthy. I know this because there were many times throughout our shopping together (10 months total) that Kathy probably could have made a sale with us, but instead chose to steer us toward better opportunities. In addition to pointing out all the great things some properties had to offer she would also point out negatives that I likely would have missed on my own. In the end, with Kathy's help, I found my dream home at a price lower than I had initially budget for. She has not only gained my business but also my trust. I would highly recommend working with Kathy.Ryan M.
It is not often that we get a chance to tell our fellow Real Estate colleagues thank you for a job well done. Your cooperation with our Broker David was an integral part of this successful closing and we want to thank you for your hard work and diligence on you end to create a “win-win” for both the Buyer and Seller’. It is not often in this Industry that you get a “shout-out” for a job well done and we wanted to let you know that it was our pleasure to work with you.Marta/ReMax
Working with Kathy Hovermale made selling our house relatively painless. Kathy was professional and prepared. She is very knowledgeable about the real estate market in Bend. She took extra time to research properties that were on the market that were comparable to ours and had great ideas for marketing our property. Kathy was easy to work with, very flexible and available to meet at times that were convenient for our busy schedules. We appreciate how she always checked to see if we had questions. She also was very conscientious about keeping us informed about the process and timeline once we accepted an offer on our house. We highly recommend Kathy to anyone selling or selling property in the Bend area.

After talking to people about their home buying experiences in Central Oregon I feel like I need to elaborate on my "5 star" rating of Jack's services. Jack helped us look for a home for over 8 months, his patience with our indecisiveness was incredible. We never felt rushed or pressured into any of the houses we looked at even after we changed the search criteria repeatedly and looked at A LOT of houses! I felt his advice was always very honest and in our best interest which ultimately helped us pick the house we bought. Not only was he amazing during the search for the home, he made sure to be available at every step of the process, helping guide us through something brand new to us. We couldn't have found a better realtor. Thanks, Jack!
Selling my very first home brought me an assortment of emotions. I was excited to take advantage of the market, yet I was nervous to be saying goodbye to my very first investment and the very first place I called home on my own. I decided to go with Tina Roberts because I own a small business in town and have heard so many great things from other buyers and seller's experiences. I must say that it was so positive I can't wait to buy another home and use Tina. With her experience in the market we were able to sell my home at a higher price than I had expected. Her advertisement had an offer on the table well over asking price in the very first day. I was so thrilled to be signing to say goodbye to my home because of the way Tina goes above and beyond to make sure both the buyer and seller are comfortable. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking to buy or sell, she’s the best in Central Oregon!Breanna, Bend
Sheri was great to work with! She quickly understood what we were looking for - even though we weren't all that sure! Her follow-up was timely and thorough. She balanced a TON of balls for us. And was very fun to work with! We highly recommend her to anyone in the greater Bend area!Sallie & Liese
“We were out of town buyers. Stephanie was very familiar with all aspects of the area. She was able to utilize email, fax and other technological means to provide listing information, contract negotiations, inspection and closing documents. She was always available to adjust her schedule when we were in town to view properties. Stephanie was able to assist in closing without our having to travel to Bend. We would recommend her to anyone.”Ron & Cindy
Prior to being introduced to Diane, our home in Odin Falls Ranch sat on the Market for 2 1/2 years, with 3 different Realtors. We had 1 offer with a contingency that took us of the market all summer, at the recommendation of our then realtor (Diane would not have allowed that) and the sale fell through. Diane is very methodical and told us what to do to make our home more show ready as well as her suggested cosmetic changes to the home. We did so and it sold a month later. Diane even negotiated a lease back with the out of state buyer. Since we have come to know and trust Diane she has helped us find a lot to build our new home, when the lot wasn’t even listed. She is a “pit-bull” on details and is so good, she can be annoying. Thank goodness for that! We have recommended her to our friends and neighbors, one of whom didn’t get an offer in one year, listed with Diane and it Sold and Closed in less than 4 months, in the dead of winter. My wife and I would not think of using or referring anyone else. Simply put, Diane gets the job done in a courteous, professional manner and you even have fun doing it! My wife and I strongly recommend Diane.Dennis C
It has been our great pleasure to work with Kathy in the process of buying, and later selling, our home. From the outset of our dealings with her, she has been unfailingly professional, competent, and very diligent every step of the way. What we most appreciate about Kathy is that she is organized and doesn't let things fall through the cracks. She's also responsive -- we never worried that we wouldn't hear back about a question or concern we had. She really kept our best interests in mind throughout our buying and selling journeys, and has a talent for knowing when to exercise assertiveness and when to be laid back about things. She was also great at giving us the info we needed (not too much and not too little) to do our part in making it happen. We can't recommend her highly enough!Bonnie & John
Tina was a pleasure to work with. We had some complicated negotiations and her response timeliness made a huge difference in the smoothness of the transaction and success of the negotiations. She is tapped into the community and as a first time home owner, I always felt informed and as though we were in good hands.Jessica W
Leah and I really appreciate working with someone as experienced and knowledgeable as you are!
Thank you for all of your help.Ferris & Leah H
Jacque helped me find a home in July of 2018. I am a single mother who works very hard to support two teens, one going to college and one getting very close. My budget was limited and I did not have a lot of hope but Jacque helped us find a wonderful home for a great deal, she acted fast, writing the offer and submitting it the same day! She had a great working relationship with the listing agent which was appreciated. She organized the appraisal and met the appraiser at the home when I had to be at work. She made sure that everything was done in a timely and thorough manner and we love our home!! We just celebrated our first Christmas - in a HOUSE and it was so special!! Jacque is not just put broker she is family.Cori J
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.
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
Charlie and I feel so fortunate to have listed our home with Colleen. She worked tirelessly to market it and was always organized, calm and professional. Her creative eye helped us stage and arrange the house to show it in its best light. Colleen is an excellent communicator and kept us continually updated throughout the process via email, phone calls, texts and personal visits. It was truly a pleasure to work with her. We recommend her without reservation and would not hesitate to work with her again. Five stars!!
Charlie & spouse
I could not have been more pleased with Debbie's professionalism and expertise while helping me sell my home in Bend. She provided excellent advise, was thinking two steps ahead of the market and was prompt with her services. I would highly recommend Debbie's Walsh to any of my family and friends who needs a courteous, smart and exceptional real estate professional.Janet G.
I have bought several homes through Elizabeth. Through all transactions she LISTENED to what I wanted and didn't want, and guided me within those parameters. She is attentive without being pushy. She knows the Bend market, pointing out amenities within an area, giving info on the local schools, and the nearby recreational options. She is also a veteran negotiator, who always gave me sound advice. Lastly, she can help buyers envision how they can put their stamp on a home without breaking the bank.Joanne S.
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
It's hard to express how much we enjoyed working with Sheri in buying a home. She's knowledgeable and energetic and worked hard for us around the clock. We felt prioritized and like her focus was on us. She drove us around for many hours looking at houses, but also made it clear that we could say "no" before walking inside any that didn't look like what we wanted. She's got a good sense of humor and obviously loves getting to know her town even better. We're in escrow at the moment, but fully expect things to go smoothly with Sheri as our advocate. We are buying out-of-state and she's in regular contact with the seller (broker and builder) and escrow service. Highly recommend!Steve & Lauren S.
I wanted to take the opportunity to highlight the AMAZING job done by Sheila Crew, Broker at Bend Premier Real Estate. Sheila was the listing agent for the purchase of a property here in Bend. An amazing property that had quite a few “hurdles” – both for selling it, as well as financing it. The property is a 40 acre manufactured home that included an unpermitted ADU, was completely off-grid powered entirely by solar panels, and access to the property included a BLM Access Permit that was no longer in the name of the seller – as the owners had passed away. To make it even more complicated, title to the property was held in an LLC that was held in trust as part of the estate!
Sheila worked exhaustingly for her clients, and ultimately for the eventual buyers of the property, as well. We would not have been able to finance this property without Sheila tackling every issue that came up – even down to the last day, when she went above and beyond to track down original copies of the death certificates for the previous owners who had passed away, as escrow had trouble obtaining them.
I have been a Loan Originator for over seven years, and I have never had the experience of working with a listing agent that has put so much effort, dedication, and hard work into her listing! I have been privileged to work with her on this transaction, and grateful for her resiliency and overcoming personality.
At Northwestern Home Loans, our motto is “You’re Worth It”. Our clients are worth it, our industry partners are worth it, and we are worth it. Sheila is a shining example of an agent that resonates with our core values – she showed all parties involved that she believed they are worth it.
I truly look forward to working with Sheila again – she sets the bar at a level that is unparalleled!David Jones
We are so very grateful for all that you have done for Tim & I and our family. We have loved your level headedness and expertise. We literally never had to worry about anything- you had everything covered. Thank you so much!Jennifer & Tim
Sheri helped my husband and I find a property that was perfect for our needs. She spend time giving us lots of options to choose from within our needs and was able to negotiate all the details needed to help our experience go smoothly. She is very knowledgeable in her field and was able to coordinate all the contacts and details to help our transaction go smoothly. She is reliable and committed to her clients. Sheri loves the Bend area and can also give you lots of activities to help make your trip to Bend enjoyable as well. If you want an agent that is committed to customer satisfaction, organized, and attentive to details-Sheri is your agent!Rob & Marie H
Bill, thank you for your kind words, makes my day. It was such a pleasure working with you. You are a top-notch professional.diane/Amerititle
Hi Kathy! - In February 2014 we purchased a home in Bend, OR thanks to the diligence, patience (with us!), and knowledge of Kathy Hovermale at Bend Premier Real Estate. Because of Kathy's prompt response to our inquiry about homes in the area as well as her rapid comprehension of the type home we were seeking she gained our immediate trust. Despite our not currently living in the area as well as a time difference she maintained constant communication with us throughout the process. Kathy helped us not only find a home, she also helped us become even more enthused about the community. We will be delighted to work with Kathy again. MANY THANKS, KATHY!
Deb & Joe A.
I met Dan Cardot about ten years ago and have had the pleasure of working with him on a number of projects. One project in particular was Dan's first steelhead. It took two trips for him to land one, but he did it with style, taking a great sea-going rainbow on a Spey rod and a swung fly.Gary L.
In working with Dan, you can sit back and feel confident that you are in the hands of a true, respected professional.Steve M.
“Dan’s expertise in the Bend market was a great benefit in our being able to purchase property with a good return and projected capital appreciation.”Chuck L.
I found Kathy on line after filling out the contact information on their website. My husband and I were just starting the process of where and when to relocate after retirement. From the initial encounter, Kathy was responsive to our questions and very knowledgeable regarding the area. We were unsure if we even wanted to move to the Bend area initially but she remained in contact regularly yet was never obtrusive. We met with her for the first time in the summer of 2019. She was so professional and generous with her time. We felt very comfortable committing to working with her solely on our property purchase. She was always prepared, flexible with our schedule and never made us feel pressured or rushed to make a purchase. When we made the final decision, the process was smooth and painless. We are very grateful and appreciative to Kathy for her service and kindness and recommend her highly.Diana & Mike B
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.John & Cheryl T.
Bob and I would like to thank you so much for helping us complete the sale of our condo in the Old Mill. You stuck with us through the long haul! Your communication with us after each showing was great. And keeping us informed when we're out of town through the closing was greatly appreciated! It has been a pleasure working with you. Thank you!
Bob and Donna M
Thank you John. I just want to say that it has been a true pleasure working with you on this transaction. You have been a great communicator, responsive and very pleasant to deal with. I only wish there were more Realtors like you. It would be a pleasure to work with you again. All my best.Local Bend Broker
I know Rachel as a friend and fellow outdoor enthusiast. In 2012 I made the difficult decision to sell my home; following a lot of research I chose Rachel as my broker. Not only did she sell my house, she superseded expectations by coordinating logistics while was out of the country. Despite the common pitfalls of mixing friends and business, her professionalism & real estate acumen have cemented respect and a lifelong friendship.DB
My husband and I first met Kathy after the 4th of July Pet Parade in downtown Bend about 7 years ago. We had been visiting Bend for several years, and decided it was time to buy. It wasn't exactly easy house hunting long distance. Kathy was so patient with us, and more than happy to show us every house we saw on web sites when we'd come up for a visit....the first home we wanted, didn't work out, but Kathy understood, and helped us find our dream house....when it came time for our son to buy his first home, we immediately contacted Kathy. She again showed us the possibilities, and steered us to the place our son now calls home. Thank you Kathy for not only helping us, but our son as well.Ann and Mike
Best ever broker experience
We recently sold our house using the services of Kathy Hovermale. Kathy went above and beyond in every aspect of the selling process. Not only did she work tirelessly in one week’s time to get our home ready to show and on the market, but she did it with the utmost professionalism and respect. The photography, staging, pricing and know-how enabled the sale of our home on the first day it went on the market. Of course, luck and timing played a role but we credit Kathy with making this sale as painless and professional as possible. We wouldn’t hesitate to call on Kathy again in the future.Cynthia K.
I highly recommend Kathy Hovermale of Bend Premier Real Estate. Kathy went above and beyond to help us find the right house and close the deal in a timely manner. She was very responsive via phone and email during the entire process, which made buying a house in Bend from three times zones away (Alexandria Virginia) amazingly easy. She visited several houses for us and provided honest feedback, found us a fast and efficient mortgage broker, referred us to a very thorough home inspector, and made us feel very welcome during both of our visits to Bend. Once we bought a house, she recommended an excellent painter who completed the work before our move-in date. In sum, if you want a friendly and helpful professional, call Kathy!Nina
Our dreams came true with Kathy's help. Our criteria was specific. Kathy was diligent in her search until she found the perfect place for us. We were out of state and Kathy walked us over the property with a phone call. She was our eyes when we couldn't be there. The buying process became difficult due to county Legal Lot of Record verification issues. Kathy spent many hours on the phone and in person with the county planners and also the tax department; keeping us updated in every step of the process. She worked with the seller's agents; helping them stay encouraged that the lengthy process would have a positive outcome. It took 87 days from offer to close. Kathy's knowledge and conviction is notable.Ken & Julie S.
Due to the fact that our purchase involved a relocation to Bend, it was a long process. Sheri was very patient and tireless throughout the process. She spent and great deal of time and showed us many homes when, at times, I am sure it seemed like things would never come together. She demonstrated solid skills in listening and sorting through our sometimes competing needs to find us the perfect house. She is willing to negotiate hard but also willing to temper that if the client feels it is needed. During the purchase portion of the transaction, she demonstrated excellent organizational skills, was always responsive with calls and e-mails, and did a very good job of keeping the transaction on track. I would use her services again.Buyers Cunningham
"We met Sheri when we first started looking at houses, it was in the very beginning of our search so we hadn't looked for a realtor yet. I feel so lucky that she was the realtor we were looking for. However, we weren't that easy. We were worried about falling in love with the first house we saw, so we decided to see what else was out there. Sheri was so patient with us. She showed us everything and made sure no stone was unturned. As first time home buyers it was really nice to feel like we had someone on our side to help us navigate the confusing world of buying a house. She was there every step of the way and continued to follow up with us even after we moved in, to make sure it was all going well. If you want someone who not only knows the area really wel,l and will work really hard for you, but truly feels like a friend helping you to get your dream house, than I can’t say enough about Sheri, go with her, you will not regret it!"

I felt so fortunate having Kathy as my broker when I sold my home in Bend, I knew right away I could trust her expertise and her knowledge of the local housing market. After touring my home, she confidently advised that I could increase the asking price and still remain competitive. Within the first week on the market we received multiple offers, each with specific details to consider, I don’t know how I would have done this without her. Kathy helped me navigate through the process of responding to the various offers and in the end, we had an accepted deal in less than 10 days and the price increase she suggested completely covered all the closing costs and fees. Kathy is a real pro, super easy to work with, and very responsive - I have already recommended her to others and will call on her again.Dave Z.
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.Nora D.
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
Kathy was an absolutely phenomenal real estate agent! She was incredibly communicative and on top of everything at all times. She went above and beyond in every aspect. I was really overwhelmed with the move and some personal issues, so having her on top of things that I would drop the ball on was incredibly helpful. She made it so easy, spelled everything out, and gave us reminders for anything that we needed to take care of. She basically organized my unorganized brain! Additionally, our house sold for nearly $10,000 more than any other agent was even willing to list it at!
Kathy is incredibly an personable and warm person, which made other agents want to work with her and negotiate with her. She is very fair in her advice, but is willing to fight for her clients. My husband and I could not have hoped for a better experience!! We have bought and sold several times in three different states, and she far surpassed all of our expectations!Angela & Christian W.
Sherry was the ultimate professional. Efficient funny smart and respectful of our needs. It took us quite a few months to find just what we were looking for and then we got it thanks to Sheri.
Pat and Vicki M.
Bill Raven is an excellent realtor. We contacted him on extremely short notice about trying to get a home we and many others were interested in. A number of obstacles arose but Bill had the knowledge and tenacity to help us overcome them all and get the home. The amount he knows about all aspects of real estate and Bend is really impressive. And not only is he an expert at what he does he’s friendly to everyone and fun to be around. Sound to good to be true? It’s easy to come up with superlatives when dealing with the best.
Greg & Linda H.
Kathy was so warm, friendly, professional, and easy to communicate with. She listened when we talked about selling the home & acreage that we owned for 25 years. Then she did everything she knew how to do to sell it for us. Thanks Kathy! You're the best!Barbara G.
Sheri stays on top of everything. We appreciated her providing us a timeline and felt she had our back. Sheri helped us find the right house, and we felt we paid a fair price as well.JoAnn & Leo
Having worked with Kathy on several transactions as both a buyer’s agent and seller’s agent, we recommend her highly and wouldn't turn to another real estate professional in the Bend market. She has integrity, is straightforward, honest and tells it like it is. Her knowledge of the Bend market is excellent and she is skilled at leveraging her broad network to tap into the resources you need. Daren and I can't say 'thank you' enough for getting our house sold. You did an outstanding job of keeping us informed every step of the way. You are an expert with people and real estate and that is why you are so good at what you do... You are the best!
If I could give more stars I would. Sheri is a fantastic agent. Provides detailed and organized information for informed decision making. Incredibly knowledgeable of the area. Responsive, genuine and patient....all traits you need in a good agent. The guidance she has provided both pre and post sale have been extremely helpful, making sure we are on track and providing options with regards to property management for our 2nd home in the beautiful Bend/Redmond area.Pete & Rachael C.
"We worked with Stephanie for a long time. She did not push us into buying anything. We felt very confident she was there for us but let us move at our own pace. We felt we could trust her. That means a lot if we were to do it again, she would be the one we would want to talk and work with. We spent many hours on the phone. She put a lot of time and energy into making everything happen. We would give her a 10 in many ways. She was honest with us and has kept in contact since we bought our house. We feel we gained a friend. I am sure you won't be disappointed whether you are selling or buying, she will do you a good job!"Jack & Ruth
Sheri is delightful to work with when you want to find the right home to purchase in Bend. Since I was relocating to Bend I wanted to see a lot of properties in a wide range of neighborhoods to determine the location and price that best suited me. I traveled to Bend numerous times over a 6 month period to tour homes with Sheri. She was always well prepared with details on each neighborhood and all the homes we toured. Since Bend was in a tight market with homes receiving multiple offers, it was important to work with Sheri because she knows how to write and offer and negotiate with Sellers and their agents to get the property you want. With her excellent knowledge of the local market and outstanding negotiation skills, Sheri helped me buy a home in the neighborhood at the price I wanted in a private sale with the seller before it was listed on MLS. She worked enthusiastically and tirelessly with me so I highly recommend you work with Sheri when you are buying a home in Bend. I am extremely pleased with the home and with Sheri.Mac F.
Elizabeth helped my mom and I buy a home for my mom. Elizabeth is knowledgeable, understanding, honest, fun and extremely thorough. Her expertise and advice were invaluable to us. She was very patient and helpful, and maintained great communication throughout the entire process. I highly recommend working with Elizabeth!!!Kathy S.
Eric is amazing and works so very hard. I am confident that the only reason our buying process went so smoothly is because of Eric’s persistence and dedication. I would highly recommend Eric to anyone.Stacey D.
Sheri is extraordinarily hard-working and knowledgeable. It’s very comforting having someone working that hard to secure your largest investment. I’m very grateful.Daniel and Lauren
As a Title and Escrow Company, we get to work closely with Realtors. Dan is fantastic to work with, he doesn't just shine when the camera's are on, but behind the scenes when he's working with us he is a class act and a consummate pro.Sabrina N.
Tina is a true Bendite. She is extremely knowledgeable when it comes to buying and selling in Central Oregon. She made the process of buying my first home very quick and easy.Amanda R
I developed a deep trust working with Tina to sell my Westside Bend home. She took care in each step of the process, keeping me informed and looking ahead. With her great advice and market insight, we sold my home quickly. She kept the process smooth for me and made it happen!”Katie O
“Stephanie, Dan and I want to thank you for the successful sale of our property on Wood Duck Ct. It was a pleasure to work with you and to get to know you. Initially, we were concerned about selling "long distance" but you put our concerns to rest. You were prompt in responding to our questions be it by phone or email. You were professional and caring and efficient. We highly recommend you to future clients. You get the job done!! Thank you, again.”Dan & Panny
Kathy was fantastic to work with throughout! My wife and I were looking for build-able average in the Bend area and were initially searching in the Sisters area. After speaking with Kathy, and letting her know what was important to us, she suggested that we look east of the city which we had not even considered at the start of our search. Kathy helped us find a beautiful 10 acre lot that was exactly what we had pictured when thinking about building our retirement home! The process of making an offer and closing the deal was easy because of Kathy's knowledge and due diligence. I would highly recommend Kathy to anyone looking for property or a home in central Oregon!Erik S.
We have worked with Kathy on a number of transactions, both buy and sell, and wouldn't use anyone else! Kathy is highly knowledgeable on the Bend market, incredibly responsive, and a true professional. She goes to bat for her clients and always goes the extra mile. We sold our home much faster than anticipated, despite listing in late fall/early winter. The process was smooth and nearly effortless. We can't speak highly enough for Kathy.Anne & Mike T
Being first time home buyers, Kathy made our entire experience seamless from start to finish. She was there every step of the way to answer questions we had and was extremely accommodating with our work schedules. Kathy is very knowledgeable in her field and models what it means to have a 'client first' attitude. She is passionate about living in Central Oregon and wholeheartedly dedicates herself to her clients to assure that they find the right home. Kathy made herself available to us at any time of the day and even drafted our offer on our current home from her camping trailer while on vacation! Our first home buying experience could not have gone any better and we owe it all to Kathy. She genuinely listens and will always put your needs first. Look no further than seeking Kathy for all your real estate needs. She is truly the best!Annie R.
Kathy has assisted me twice in the last four years buying and selling property in Bend. She is very energetic, persistent, and thoughtful, and I appreciate her efforts.Arlo V. & Bryn P.
Kathy was very helpful and responsive and also communicated important topics clearly without sales pressure. She went out of the way to talk with our new neighbors beforehand which gave us a lot of insight regarding the property.Arlovarri
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.The Hansens
We recently had the opportunity to work with Kathy Hovermale as our listing agent in Bend. We live in the Portland area, so we placed our complete confidence in her ability to manage the sale from Bend. The home was a rental property with a tenant in place. She maintained contact with us, with the property management company, and with the tenant (who was not easy to work with) in regards to the details of listing and showing the property. She was assertive and professional in regards to contact with the tenant and was able to get the property shown, and sold within 1 month of listing. She worked very hard in regards to all the details involved in of the sale of our property, and made what could have been a difficult sale, very easy for us. Thank you Kathy!Debbie O.
Jacqueline has worked with us at looking at houses that would fit our situation. She is very knowledgeable about her product, Has a great personality, and a joy to work with. You can count on her to help you find your fit, not just a building.Melanie B.
You will never find a businessman with more integrity than Dan. In every business venture he gives 110% to the project. Plus, his easy-going yet professional personality will make marketing or purchasing a home a positive experience for everyone involved.Valarie D.
I had the pleasure of working with Kathy when I decided to sell my rental property in Bend. As a 40 year sales professional I had a difficult time finding someone I could trust enough to listen to my needs and help develop a winning strategy and commit to the strategy we agreed on. Kathy went above and beyond at every level, her knowledge of the market was spot on. Her communication during the entire process was excellent, and her tenacity and drive to secure a qualified buyer for my property was first-rate.
There are many realtors who understand the metrics of the business, they can print CMA reports and recite numbers.. and these skills are necessary. Kathy sets herself apart by understanding the intangibles involved. My listing involved managing a difficult relationship with uncooperative renters. Without her unique ability to keep everyone involved calm and focused I would have been lost.
Anyone looking for a real estate professional to navigate the rough waters of a real estate transaction would be wise to consider Kathy Hovermale as professional partner.
Bill was extremely helpful in the process of fighting city hall over the new septic to sewer regulations. Bill went way beyond and above in order to sell my property! He kept me up to date as to all the proceedings and gave me excellent advice all along the way. I highly recommend Bill as a realtor and a great person to know.Paul H.
“Stephanie's services as a realtor were absolutely topnotch. She went out of her way to show us places from one end of town to the other and always seemed available to us. It felt like we were her only clients, and we so appreciated that. She listened to us, and showed us a lot of places. It really happened pretty quickly--only two weeks of concentrated looking to find just the right place for us. We would have no hesitation in recommending Stephanie to anyone looking for real estate services.”Joni & Ben
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.Kelly
Diane - we are so glad we utilized your wonderful skills for selling our house! You really made us realize there IS a difference when choosing a realtor. We will stay in touch and you please do the same.Anne & Mike
Most amazing agent to work with in all of central Oregon. From providing absolutely AMAZING service, to helping us get a lower rate from providing a referral to a better loan officer, Leah has the most upbringing personality, and absolute professionalism. Leah takes great pride in being an agent and it shows through her hard work. I will definitely recommend Leah to anyone I know buyer or selling a house. Thank you Leah so much!Bailey
Tina sold my house in 2012 and just sold another house for me in 2016. Tina is a pleasure to work with and she followed up very diligently and kept me informed daily. To describe Tina in a few words: She knows the area, very good follow through, attention to detail, great communicator and last of all, a really nice gall to work with. Thanks for a job well done Tina.Jacob
Kathy did a great job of helping us get through a lot of the confusion and uncertainties of relocating. During our search, once she found what we were looking for not only in a house but the overall area as well, she worked hard under time constraints coming up with a number of listings to look at that fit our needs. So when we finally made the decision to buy, we felt we had a good handle on what was available within our budget and that the house we picked fit our needs well.
And after we decided to make an offer on our house, Kathy gave us information on the loan process and guided us through all the purchase-related paperwork and deadlines, right up to the time of closing, with much of the process happening long-distance between Bend and our home in Illinois.
Overall, though buying a home is never without some level of stress, Kathy's guidance and focus on detail made the whole process go very smoothly--including acting as sort of an ambassador to Bend and giving us all kinds of information on activities, restaurants and many other things of interest to someone who will soon be moving to Bend. Thanks, Kathy!Helen S. and John K.
Sheri truly is a real estate PROFESSIONAL and a credit to the real estate industry. We could not have been more pleased working with Sheri to sell our home. She is very knowledgeable about the current real estate market and the entire process from listing to closing. Sheri is an excellent communicator and responded quickly to all our questions. We have two young children and appreciate Sheri’s flexibility in scheduling and her punctuality when we needed to meet. A rare trait in this fast-paced world. Sheri’s attention to detail made finding a buyer and the entire transaction, flow smoothly and quickly. If we have any more real estate transactions in the future, we will be calling Sheri!James & Heather M.
I am a Real Estate Broker in the Willamette Valley so I/we know how Listings and Sales are supposed to be handled. Stephanie did the best job on any realtor we have ever used in the Bend/Sunriver area. We have other properties we will be selling and will not consider using anyone but her. I have no problem being contacted about our experience with her.Larry
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!!!Bonnie & Duncan
Kathy recently helped us purchase a rental house in Sunriver as part of a 1031 exchange. Having never done anything like that before, we didn’t realize the tight time line involved. In theory, one has 45 days to choose three properties of interest, and 6 months to close on one of them. In a fast-moving market like Bend/Sunriver, this means that one should close in 45 days, to ensure that one actually can meet the 1031 terms.

We had originally hoped to buy a rental condo in Bend, but when Kathy explained the complicated short-term rental rules and application process we realized that it wouldn't work in our situation. We were pretty discouraged but Kathy sat down with us and suggested that we should look for a property in Sunriver, which is set up for short-term rentals. From then on, all went smoothly! We selected half a dozen properties to look at from the listings she sent us, and made an offer on one. Kathy's negotiating suggestions were spot-on, and we were able to close on the property in less than 40 days, at a price within our budget. Kathy was also very thorough and organized about all the details of the inspection and the paperwork. What could have been a very difficult experience was made painless by her, and we feel like we gained a friend in the process.
We highly recommend Kathy and would happily work with her again.
Moving from Salem to Redmond we were unfamiliar with any local realtor. On a recommendation we were introduced to Jacque and what a joy it was to work with her. Her local knowledge of the area is a plus to anyone interested in moving to Central Oregon. That we found out was just a start. Her work ethic is impeccable nothing short of perfection. If something was needed she was right on it down to the last details. Living in The Valley she was there for us at inspection! Let me make something very clear, as fine as a realtor she is she is, she is twice the individual. Her kindness, her true love for helping us find our dream home and trust we felt the entire process with our wants and needs, she was there! She is such a genuine, caring person and don't look any further, we guarantee you will not regret choosing Jacque as your realtor. Not only do we consider her a great realtor but she is a wonderful friend and neighbor.Shastinakid
As a new home buyer moving from out of state, I was very worried about how I was going to find the right home and the right people to help me buyer that home. After contacting multiple realtors with little to no response, I was lucky enough to meet Kathy. Through the entire process Kathy kept me informed and up to date on the home buying process. Kathy made countless phone calls to ensure that my future home was safe and sound. Kathy went above and beyond even providing me with utility companies and their phone numbers to transfer services into my name. As I am new to the state of Oregon, I did not have any idea on who to contact for my loan and other services. Kathy lined me up with a great home inspector and mortgage broker as well. Kathy truly advocated for me as her client.Charles A.
Working with Sheri was a real pleasure. Her relaxed style made us feel comfortable from our first encounter. She quickly picked up on the kind of home we were looking for, and helped us find a neighborhood and a home that we think will be a great fit for us. From the beginning of the process to closing and afterwards, Sheri's interactions with us were prompt but not pushy. As this was a long distance move for us, Sheri was especially helpful handling issues (like the inspection) that we couldn't be present for. Knowledgable, responsive, and thorough, Sheri met and surpassed all of our needs. We would recommend Sheri without hesitation. All 5 stars of this rating are fully deserved!Rob and Susan K.
“Stephanie Waugh started to work with my wife and I on a Sunday via the internet. Stephanie was excellent to work with. She was kind, polite, knowledgeable, and willing to put in the hours without exception. She appeared to be on our side, and not just out to make a sale. Several times she took it upon herself to perform research on some of the listings and she passed on what she learned, which was major protection for us. It will be hard for you to find a realtor who is on your side, not just out to make a sale. If you want such a realtor, go with Stephanie!!!”Denton
Kathy Hovermale helped my son buy his first house in Bend. He was relocating from out of state and did not know anything about the Bend housing market. Kathy managed promptly to line up showings and spent two days showing him a variety of houses in his price range, and explaining to him the features of each house and property. She quickly demonstrated that she is a super-competent broker who knows the territory. She carefully and thoroughly explained the advantages and disadvantages of the various locations he was considering, and pointed out repairs that would be needed so that he could evaluate how much he wanted to spend on the initial purchase and how much he might need to spend after closing to update or improve each house. Her guidance and patience in helping a first-time buyer was outstanding.Barbara R.
Sheri has excellent knowledge of the area and current market trends. She is easy to reach and followed up on any questions or concerns I had. Our home purchase was completed within 30 days.Craig & Debbie M.
I just have to take a minute before this year ends to tell you that Denny Osborn should be considered one of Bend Premier Real Estate's most valuable assets! He certainly was one to us this last summer when he helped us navigate through the frustrating, often painful and even frightening process of finding and purchasing a home in a seriously not-so-friendly renter and seller's market!
Having been home, property and rental owners in the past, nothing prepared us for the lack of access, options and zero availability of affordable housing in Bend! It took us a year and unfortunately, we are among the many people you have been reading about and may have been working with who were forced to leave Bend.
The good news is that, thanks to Denny, we did finally move and while not by choice, we found and actually got a place in Redmond! So, unlike the scores of people facing homelessness or financial ruin to have decent housing who have left the area, we are at least still in Central Oregon!
Denny was kind, patient, understanding, knowledgeable and highly professional. We quickly came to trust his direction, strategies and input!. It was all quite an education for us and he clearly was not only experienced, but ethical and committed to excellence when it came to promptly and effectively moving through the properties, people, problems and paperwork necessary to successfully complete our housing quest!
Be assured that we are a devoted Public Relations Team for Denny and Bend Premier Real Estate! We will be singing his praises for a good long time to come!!!Ragnar & Sandra H.
It is my absolute pleasure to share with you the home buying experience we enjoyed with our realtor Diane Lozito in Bend, Oregon. To accommodate our relocation from Austin TX to Bend our R/E agent in Austin referred us to Diane, explaining that Ms. Lozito was one of Bend’s top performing realtors – and after our experience, my wife and I completely understand why this firecracker is at the top of her game. From the advance research and statistics she provided us while we were still in Austin to the local knowledge of Bend she shared with us during our buying trip, Diane’s efforts were tireless and her attention to detail exceptional. It is so important in this real estate environment to team up with an active, knowledgeable agent who can steer you in the right direction – avoiding the pitfalls of problematic neighborhoods s and poor resale areas of town. Diane knows Bend and really understands this market - and the information she shared with us went far & beyond the best homes, neighborhoods, and areas to buy.
Through her business network and the professional relationships she’s forged Diane was able to put us in touch with one of Bend’s top lenders, home inspection and appraisal companies, and perhaps the only title company in Bend that could expedite a simultaneous 30-day close to coincide with our home sale in Austin. And when it came time to submit an offer and negotiate the purchase of our new home, Diane’s tenacity and understanding of what the market would bear resulted in the best purchase price we could have hoped for. Finally, having purchased homes previously in Canada, Hawaii, and Texas – I can tell you that Diane’s devotion to her clients is a rare commodity ... And that is why I asked if I could share our experience with future potential clients of hers. You will truly be in good hands.Glen T.
Kathy Hovermale far exceeded our expectations on every level relating to the purchase our home in Bend. She’s experienced, professional, straightforward, has exceptional integrity, and is a skilled negotiator. She’s a great listener and communicator. Her depth of knowledge of the Bend area and real estate market, and her contacts and referrals within the community are immeasurable and valuable. Kathy took us ‘under her wing’ before, during and long after the sale was complete. Immediately after the closing, we were unable to take physical possession for a few days and Kathy watched over the property until we arrived. She provided a list of preferred vendors for local services and to begin furnishing our new home. Our experience with Kathy was rewarding and greatly eased the stress of new home buying.
Many, many thanks Kathy. See you on the trails!Hannah and Mark F
We enjoyed working with Stephanie. She is professional and makes time to be supportive of the client in every way--including responding to a client's need for information at every step of the process. Selling a home can be stressful but Stephanie helped to alleviate our stress by providing information, staying in touch to provide moral support, and truly sharing our joy when the house sold. Stephanie knows the business and cares about the client. This is the best combination when buying or selling a home.Irene
I highly recommend Kathy Hovermale. Kathy had our backs through the entire process. Even when I wasn't paying close attention to details Kathy was! Her insight and honest opinion through out the process was invaluable. Relators of her caliber are hard to come by these days.Alton L.
I highly recommend Dan Cardot to your business and your mission. Dan is a highly credible person with strong moral values and immense integrity! Dan is honest, hardworking, and committed. In selecting Dan Cardot, you will experience a step up in your efforts and goals.Raymond R.
My wife and I were having a terribly difficult time finding a rental during our cross-country move as we have several animals. Luckily, we found Kathy Hovermale. She reached out and helped us when nobody else would. She was able to find us a rental that allowed our animals, and shortly after that she found us the home of our dreams. She is not an ordinary realtor. She is highly professional, kind, honest, and genuine. She was there to stand up for us, look out for us, and make sure our home was exactly what we hoped. She exceeded our expectations in every way. I'm not sure that she will ever know how much all of her help meant to my wife and I, it's really difficult to put into words. I guess the easiest way to say it is... thank you Kathy.Brett T.
We want to take a moment to write you about our experiences with Debbie Walsh. My wife Toni and I have been working with her to find a home in Bend for over a year. Since we live in northern California, it required multiple trips up to Bend to try to find something that worked for us. I suspect that we were fairly difficult clients, as we had particular tastes that made finding a home challenging. Plus, my wife and I had to find something we both liked, which at times seemed a bit daunting.
Through it all, Debbie remained very patient and helpful. She started by showing us a fairly broad range of homes in different neighborhoods with a variety of styles. As it became clearer to us were we wanted to be,, she tried to find us a home or lot in our desired neighborhoods. However, she also continued to show us homes she thought might appeal to us, even if they were not in our preferred areas. We told her at the outset that we did not want to live in a gated or golf community. But we also wanted a decent sized lot with privacy and trees. As she showed us options, it gradually became clear that we needed to be a bit more flexible in our approach. We put in offers on three homes, none of which worked out. That turned out for the best, as we ultimately bought a cool house in Awbrey Glen, one that Debbie probably knew we would like. Although we ended up spending quite a bit more than we had anticipated, we are both very excited about the home we have bought. During this long process, Debbie always made time for us during our visits. She was also accessible via phone and email in between visits, and her follow up was exceptional.
We’re sorry for Debbie’s sake that it took so long for us to find something, but her warmth and professionalism made the whole experience easier for us to handle. We would be more than happy to refer any friends and associates to her should they be searching for a property in the Bend area.Toni M. & Pete P.
Dan is very experienced and knowledgeable and works hard to do the best job possible. He also has a great attitude with high integrity and moral character. I recommend him highly!!Mark E.
We can't thank Diane enough for all her help and guidance over the last several months. It's been a joy working with you! We want to find a time next week to have lunch (and I'll probably insist on paying for yours too; so brace yourself! ).Mark & Carolyn M
I highly recommend William Raven as a Real Estate agent. If family members or friends decide to move to Bend, Oregon, I would recommend Bill Raven, to them in a New York minute. Bill was our realtor in our search of buying a home in Bend. Since we were new to the area, Bill was very knowledgeable about the real estate market in this area. Bill made our home buying process go smoothly. He also has the local contacts, from financial home loans companies, Title company, and inspection company. Bill is an excellent communicator. He kept us informed throughout the process. He answered a lot of our questions. After closing on our wonderful home, Bill was available and assisted on our move-in issues. We are grateful for Bill.
Happy and grateful to Sheri, for her knowledge and quick action in selling our lot. She was thoughtful, responsive, and supportive to us every step of the way. Thank you!
Patric & Jeanne
Bill is a very conscientious Realtor and is an excellent communicator. He kept us informed while our property was listed about potential interest and gave us timely feedback after showings. As a fellow Realtor, that instilled confidence that we’d chosen the right person for the job. Thanks Bill!Jennifer M.
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!Brently F.
If you are reading this and you are considering selling or purchasing your home, you owe it to yourself to call Tina Roberts. In fact, you should call 3 realtors as I did and interview all three of them. Assuming all three return your phone call, which I doubt, you will be left with Tina and maybe one other. Tina, pays careful attention to the real estate contract, most people do not realize this is the most important aspect to the transaction! Having a competent real estate professional will not only help to insure your transaction goes smoothly but also helps to negotiate the best possible transaction for you. Tina has saved me thousands of dollars by carefully bulletproofing our sales contracts. Tina has lived in bend her whole life, she has raised her family in Bend. She knows and most importantly understands our unique real estate market. She is also responsive and returns phone calls promptly. You think this would be a no brainer. But I am constantly amazed and frustrated how many "part time and full time" Listing agents take days to return Tina's numerous phone calls. Whether you are an experienced investor a first time home buyer, you owe it to yourself to at a minimum call Tina. Best of luck to you in your real estate adventure.Brian F
Tina helped us find our dream home at a great price and in a timely manner. She made our whole experience enjoyable and stress-free. She made our needs a priority and made sure we were protected and secure with our purchase. I will definitely use her services again for any future realty needs.Travis & Gina C
“Stephanie, Just a note thanking you for all your help in selling our lot. We were really happy with your keeping us informed of all that was going on with other lots, prices etc. If we get around to selling or buying anything we will surly contact you. Told a few of our friends over there how happy we were with everything you have done and they will surly keep you in mind.”Smitty & Donna
Elizabeth listened closely to our priorities and desires and narrowed the available homes to a manageable number. She showed us a good cross section of neighborhoods and home styles. And when it came time to negotiate, she was a strong advocate for us as our agent. We would highly recommend Elizabeth Ueland for anyone looking to purchase a home or sell a home in Central Oregon. She's a smart, fun friend to have in the area.
Jeff & Cindy S.
Elizabeth's (Bend Premier's) website was the best website for searching, better than Zillow or Trulia.
Dear Bob and Diane,
Avi and I would like to thank you from making our house purchase in Bend the best experience ever. Since we live in California, it would have been difficult for us to buy a new house sight unseen. Your approach to us was, "We’re going to help you not only find a house, but find a home". The two of you were our eyes and ears, while the house was being built. Your warm personality and kindness made it easy for us to have full trust in you, and we knew that we were in good hands. The house turned out beautifully, and we are very happy with the results.
Out of that experience, not only do we feel we have the best real estate agents ever, but we also feel that we make new friends and you have become a part of our family. We will not hesitate to recommend you to anyone that is looking to purchase a home in Bend and the surrounding area.
Thank you for all your help.
Ora & Avi M.
