Ken & Molly are longtime Bend residents. Ken arrived in 1979 when the population was 17,000, 3rd street had only three stop lights, and Mt. Bachelor’s chairs were named after colors. Molly came to Bend in 2000 and quickly embraced the Bend lifestyle in every way. Our extensive knowledge of Bend and its history affords us a unique perspective as we service our clients in buying or selling properties in Central Oregon. We pride ourselves on delivering a fun and knowledgeable experience that lays the foundation for a lifetime of enjoying all this magical community has to offer. Reach out to us if you’re thinking of buying or selling or if you just want to hear about Bend in the good old days (like the donut machine at Mt Bachelor).
