Favorite Links - Bend & Central Oregon

As a Real Estate Resource Center for Bend, Sisters, Redmond and Central Oregon, here you will find groups of links for local Real Estate Information, Community, Arts and Events, Recreational, Utilities, Maps and more. Whether you already live in the area, or are thinking about moving or relocating here, I hope you find this information helpful.

The information gleaned from the internet can be helpful, but generally will not duplicate the personalized service of a local provider. From living and working in Bend Oregon for more than twenty years, I have compiled a large database of my favorite local sources. To find the best person or source for a real estate related service such as lenders, builders, attorneys, roofers, surveyors, painters, home repairs, or even computer consulting, auto repair, carpet cleaner, furnace expert, etc., just call or email me for a personalized list and referrals to local service providers.

Each link will open in a new browser window or tab. Close that window when you are done to easily return to explore all the links.
