This year alone, the accolades for Bend include USA Today's list of the nation's top 10 ski towns, Men's Health's suggestions for "6 Unforgettable Adventure Vacations to Take in 2016," Travel + Leisure's roundup of "Best Winter Getaways from Portland," and Golf Advisor's "Top Ten US Value Destinations" for golf. The kudos are not limited to Bend. Sunriver Resort made Golf Digest's Top 10 Destinations for Family Golf Trips. BIKE Magazine featured Central Oregon's mountain-biking trails almost exclusively in its 100-page Bible of Bike Tests Issue. Pronghorn, Crosswater, and Tetherow all made Golf Digest's list of "100 Greatest Public C...

I just attended a very informative HUD webinar class about what seems to be an awesome way to create some affordable homebuying and selling opportunities for buyers and realtors.  By attending this class, I am qualified/certified to write deals under this program.. For Deschutes County, there will be opportunities in Redmond. A google map will be posted in early September where you will be able to type in the address to see if the property is qualified.  It sounds like the opportunities will be mainly in Redmond and Lapine.  The purpose of the NSP (Neighborhood Stabilization Program) is to clear out foreclosure inventory and stabilize housing prices.  The nice thing about this program is that you don't have to be low income to qualify.  This program is more targeted to the middle class ...

We are working on our second day in a row of 80 degree weather, the flowers are in bloom, and pollen is in the air.    It seems a bit delayed but I believe summer has finally reached us in beautiful Central Oregon.   Yeah!!  Spring seemed to bypass us this year but I'll settle for summer if I must.  Winter was a mild one and summers are always gorgeous, so no complaints here.  I love living in Central Oregon with all it has to offer, including it's quirky little weather patterns!         Come and check out Central Oregon for yourself and all it has to offer including:  summer concerts in the parks, community events held in our revamped downtown, hiking and climbing throughout the area, white water rafting, fishing, and so much more.   You might just love it so much you decide to stay!  ...
