We are proud to say that we’ve just completed our third year as an independent real estate company on an optimistic note. The number of transactions we closed in 2010 was up 27% from 2009. Counting new residential construction in Bend, Oregon we were Number One in dollar volume at the end of the year with nearly 20% of the market. A snapshot taken among Central Oregon MLS members in late February 2011 ranked us No. 3 in Bend residential listings by dollar volume and No. 4 by number of listings, both up from the end of 2010. We continue to add new brokers and now have 19 licensed agents engaged in real estate sales. We realize success is something that is earned and we are grateful to our clients, builders and colleagues in the Bend, Oregon real estate community.
