July 2023 Newsletter – The 3 P’s

I hope your summer is progressing nicely. An exciting event for me was when Bend Golf Club won the 2023 Deschutes Cup. The Deschutes Cup is a competition between several of our local golf clubs. This marks my 3rd victory in a row as team captain and 9 overall titles in the event’s history. Congrats to the team!

Mark’s Market Update

Even as interest rates are creeping up we are still seeing a lot of activity in the Bend, Oregon market. In the last few weeks I have been working with several buyers in the $800,000 – $1,200,000 range and every single offer that we submitted was part of a competitive, multiple-offer situation. The keys to success are being prequalified, prepared, and patient. If you are considering buying a home in Central Oregon, I invite you to work with me as your real estate agent. I can help you navigate the market, identify options, and secure your ideal home.

My Current Listings

This picture was taken June 17th, our last day staying at My Place which is an extended stay hotel near the Old Mill. We lived there for 3 weeks with the kids and the dog, got to see some concerts, went to Ben & Jerry’s for ice cream several times all while working with clients, remodeling our home, and running kids to soccer or volleyball practices, camps, and tournaments. We promise to share updates and photos of the remodel soon. Make sure to follow me on Instagram and/or Facebook by clicking the icons below if you want to see what we are doing to our home. We are getting our cabinets soon which will allow for a lot of the finish work to progress. We would like to give a huge thanks to our family, friends, and clients who have been so helpful and generous to us as we continue to work on our house!
