Your best interests always come first. That’s important to me, because my philosophy is to counsel, not convince. Your real estate decisions are an important part of your life’s story.
Most people here have stories about moving to Bend, Oregon. My own started in 2003 when I moved to Central Oregon from Seattle, Washington in 2003. Along with my business partner, Terry Skjersaa, I migrated to Real Estate from the Ski & Outdoor Industry. Our business relationship is built upon 22 years of trust and friendship. Together, along with the rest of our team, we offer unparalleled service to all our clients. No matter when you call on us, you will always speak with a professional, capable and available to service your needs.
In 2009, I was invited to become a partner at Duke Warner Realty—an unbelievable honor that I am very grateful for. Later that same year I became eligible to earn my Principal Broker license, which I obtained in the first quarter of 2010. Principal Broker licensees must go through subsequent state mandated training, requiring a much deeper understanding of Oregon Real Estate. Duke and Kitty Warner established Duke Warner Realty in 1967 with the underlying principle of providing first-rate service to their clients. I am proud to be a part of such a long-standing, locally-owned fixture within the Bend Oregon community.
I have a passion for real estate, and you will see this in my work. I am a qualified and experienced professional Realtor®. I have handled many different types of properties from single-family homes to industrial condos. I also hold the Certified Residential Investment Specialist (CRIS) designation, which affords you the opportunity to receive detailed analyses of potential residential income properties, helping you make a better investment decision.
“It’s my job to know the Bend, Oregon real estate market, and use this knowledge to best serve the needs of my clients.”
My background is a diverse mix of sales, marketing, customer service and technology. My uncompromising attention to detail and design experience will ensure that your property is marketed for maximum exposure; and my market knowledge and commitment to my clients is unparalleled. I am organized, meticulous and manage my business with integrity. I want you to find what you’re looking for and to have satisfaction in knowing you are being taken care of by a professional.
I invest a considerable amount of time and energy following the Bend Oregon real estate market and I think you’ll find the market trend and statistical information available here exceedingly insightful. It’s my job to know the Bend, Oregon real estate market, and use this knowledge to best serve the needs of my clients.
I’m a member of the Central Oregon Association of Realtors® (COAR); I have served on the Government Affairs Committee, as Trustee to COARPAC and on the Board of Directors for COAR. The impetus to volunteering for the Government Affairs Committee is correlated with my commitment to unparalleled service. The knowledge and insight I gain from serving on the Committee affords me a better understanding of how public policy affects private property owners—my clients. I am also a member of the National Association of Realtors® (NAR) and the Oregon Association of Realtors® (OAR).
I hold two additional designations. Certified Residential Investment Specialist (CRIS) and Earth Advantage—Sustainability Training for Accredited Real Estate Professionals (EA S.T.A.R.).
Furthermore, I have undergone training to provide me with a better understanding of the sustainable or “green” components of a home. I use this knowledge to better market sustainably-built homes for my contractor clients and homeowners; and translate the features of a “green” home into benefits for my buyer clients.
Since beginning my career in real estate, I have managed to beat the trend and continue to gain market share each year. I’m very fortunate to have been successful, and I owe a lot of gratitude to my clients, my family, my team and my company. Like you, I have my story of moving to Bend, Oregon and I am here to ensure yours has a happy ending!
