Getting to know Jody Tuttle

Jody has lived in Central Oregon since 1975 and spent over 18 years in software development, most recently as a project manager, before entering the Bend real estate market as a licensed Broker in 2005.

She joined Harcourts The Garner Group in 2008, where she specializes in new homes, luxury homes and helping newcomers relocate to the Bend area. An active outdoorswoman, Jody was attracted to Central Oregon by the quality of life and enjoys skiing, hiking, biking, geocaching and raising Border Collies. She is a former 25-year member of the Mt. Bachelor National Ski Patrol and in 2007 was named National Outstanding Auxiliary Patroller.

Jody’s Graduate, Realtor Institute (GRI) designation was earned through an advanced program for real estate professionals conducted by the National Assn. of Realtors.

Jody has earned two advanced certifications relating to green and sustainable building practices. The National Assn. of Realtors GREEN designation is a certification awarded by NAR’s Green Resource Council upon completion of a three-day classroom course focusing on fundamentals of green building practices, consumer awareness and marketing of homes built to green standards.

She also has received her Earth Advantage Broker (formerly STAR–Sustainability Training for Accredited Real Estate Professionals) certification from the Earth Advantage Institute upon completion of classroom training and a written test. The course provides an overview of green home certification programs and offers participants a hands-on exploration of green building techniques and products.
