September and October have always been our favorite months in Central Oregon because we have warm days, beautiful fall colors, and kids are back in school! With summer slowly winding down and cooler, crisp mornings beginning to set in, it’s time to bring you the latest real estate updates for Bend, Oregon. No movement in interest rates has kept the real estate market on a slow and steady pace. Here are some statistics from August for Bend, Oregon.
We get a lot of questions about our team so we thought it would be a good time to reintroduce ourselves. Bend Homes Now is owned by Mark & Brooke Garcia and is made up of the 3 of us. It is our own little company within Cascade Hasson Sotheby’s which is our brokerage. Now the three of us are licensed brokers under Mark Garcia and the Cascade Hasson Sotheby’s brand. Mark and Brooke have been married for 23 years and working together in business since 2017. Kate MacMillan & Brooke met while working at Bank of the Cascades in 2006 and have been friends ever since. Kate joined the Garcia’s to help with Brooke’s Property Management business and Mark’s real estate in 2021. Kate has the same approach to customer service and professionalism which made her the perfect fit for our team. When Brooke sold Bend Group Property Management Kate shifted to helping Mark with real estate and became a licensed broker herself. At that time, Brooke helped with marketing and business operations for Bend Homes Now until she herself became licensed in August of 2023. The 3 of us are excited to help you with your real estate needs while remaining knowledgeable about long-term, residential property management. Our clients get the benefit of working with an experienced team who genuinely enjoy working together and helping people make sound real estate decisions in Central Oregon.
