What Our Clients Are Saying
For about a year, I’ve been searching the Bend/Redmond area for a home to purchase. While on Fred Real Estate Group’s website I got connected with Teri Cravens. Teri listened when I told her I wasn’t quite ready to purchase, but she never gave up. She stayed in touch with me the entire year and when it was time to purchase, she was available and ready to begin showing me homes for sale. Teri knew I had a budget to stay in, she explained thoroughly why some offers weren’t accepted and once we found the perfect home, she worked for me. She made the owners do the needed repairs, she did all the negotiations and even made it possible to move into my home early because of the big snow storm that just hit! If you want a realtor that listens, makes you feel like you are her only client and has your best interest at heart, then you need to use Teri. Not only did I find an excellent realtor I found a friend!
We we’re looking for second home in Bend OR. Was in touch with an agent I found on the web. When we drove up to Bend, something came up n the agent could not accompany us to the scheduled open house but gave us directions to the place. We loved the place we saw and wanted to make an offer, but we did not have an agent. We drove around and saw another place and called the listing agent. It was Denise Whitney, we asked her if she could meet us, 20 minutes later we were having coffee at Starbucks, we told Denise we liked her listing but we were interested in making an offer on the first place we saw.
Denise did not bat an eye lid, she got to work writing an offer. This was in late May we closed in Sept. Denise made it happen, she gave it her best, always updating us and keeping us in the loop, since we were in California she had to do all the heavy lifting. I cannot believe escrow went smoothly, I would also like to thank Jill and her team at Western Title Co.
Usually most agents say adios after closing, not Denise, every time I drive up there I’d catch up with Denise, her caring and authenticity was and still is genuine. Recently, I forgot to cover an outdoor faucet when I left the home. I was reluctant to ask Denise (I’m 860 miles south of Bend). I decided to call, guess what, she said she would take care of it. Denise is an agent who says what she means and means what she says and always follows through.
Thanks Denise, you are awesome.
Randy Crossley was an absolute pleasure to work with!! Not only did he go out of his way to make sure all of our needs were met in the process of purchasing our home, he put up with us “freaking out” over the whole process!! He truly is the epitome of service!! we would highly recommend him any time to anyone looking to purchase in the Bend, OR or surrounding areas! He is so relatable and knowledgable about the area and its highlights.
Marcia is an absolute gem, and if I could do it all over again I’d work with her again in a heart beat! I was afraid it’d be difficult to go through the home buying process from out of state, but she was my eyes and ears in town and made sure everything was handled and all was in order — plus she sent me pictures of the house being built every time I got a little antsy! She’s knowledgable about the process and the city, she’s highly responsive, and she made negotiations on my behalf for costs I didn’t even think to ask about. She’s a great agent to have in your corner, and I can’t recommend her highly enough.
A huge thank you to Fred Real Estate, for selling our parents’ home!! Listed and sold within six months! Fred Mannila had to go above and beyond to help us, because we were out of town. I would recommend Fred, if you want to get it done the professional way. Plus, he is a family man with integrity!!
Hand’s down the best website and group of brokers in Central Oregon. They let you browse listings straight from the MLS unlike Zillow which has old info. They do make you sign up for their site but only ask for a phone number and email and only called once to see if they could help and then only responded when I initiated it or needed something. They also have got to have one of the coolest real estate offices I’ve ever been to. They have a ping pong table and music playing and just seem like they really enjoy their jobs. Huge refreshment from some past experiences. Give Fred a shot, you’ll be happy you did.
Super cool real estate office in Bend. Has that laid back vibe and atmosphere going on and every agent I met there was extremely helpful, attentive, and hardworking. They really seem to go above and beyond for their clients. Fred Real Estate is literally the only brokerage in Bend that I would ever consider working with after having such a wonderful and positive experience working with them. It’s also nice that they treated me like a valued customer and person despite the fact that I was looking at homes under 200,000. Other places make you feel unimportant unless you have big bucks. It’s obvious they actually care about people and not just booking a commission. I’m happy to give the entire Fred Real Estate team 5 stars!
Awesome real estate company in one of the most beautiful places on earth, Bend, OR. These guys really know Bend and really know how to treat people. Had a great time exploring homes and getting to know the area with them. They approach real estate from an educational angle and truly just want to help you, no hard sells or pressure whatsoever. When it comes time to list my place there is no doubt that I will be going with Fred!
Used Fred Real Estate Group for a recent home purchase. Misty Rupe was great, stayed in touch through the whole process, very effective. Would use them again.
Sally Jacobson helped me sell my dad’s house after he passed. She dug in, and helped put together a nice marketing package on the house, and worked very hard to get it sold. Sally gave great advice and support, and helped with little things that I could not do since I did not live there (including helping me find homes for my dad’s pets, find a house cleaner, and doing other work above and beyond). And she sold the house quickly with a nice clean deal! If I ever move back to Bend, I know who I’ll call to help me sell the house! Thank you Sally – you’re a ROCK star!
