Happy Clients

Here’s what others are saying about buying and selling with us:

I want to take a minute to thank you again for the fantastic job you did in assisting us in the purchase of our new home. As the owner of a business that requires a high degree of professionalism and customer service I recognize efforts that are, “above and beyond”. You could not have performed more admirably. Your patient and strategic approach to assisting us in exploring what was available in the market and matching it to our goals and needs was perfect! Your business-like approach to guiding me through making an offer, escrow, financing and closing could not have been more seamless. Thank you again for all your time, help, and guidance. We will without a doubt suggest you and your team to our friends and associates.

Our experience with with Ken Renner on the sale of our home was nothing short of exceptional. I am a realtor myself, but chose to work with Ken because of his expertise in the Central Oregon market and overall professionalism. Ken was extremely responsive, provided excellent guidance and exceeded every expectation we had going to the the process. We cannot recommend him more highly to anyone in need of a real estate professional.

After relocating to Bend in September of 2012, we had the fortune of enlisting the services of Ken Renner of Cascade Sotheby’s Realty. Ken exemplifies the highest qualities and attributes in his profession. Ken listened to and accessed our needs in finding the ideal property for our family. Our path took many turns, and as we got to know the community, Ken offered sound advice based on his long tenure and active involvement in the community. Ken is meticulous in his planning and attention to detail. His integrity and professionalism along with his consummate understanding of the community made our search an enjoying process. Ken is a great person and truly the best in class!

Working with Ken Renner on the purchase of a new home was both a positive and collaborative experience. Through out the entire process, he provided timely communication,was always available, gave pertinent advice when necessary, and helped us succeed in finding the right house. Not once did we feel pressure, only support by his personable and friendly approach. He was truly vested in the best outcome for our needs. I would highly recommend Ken to anyone!

The sales team couldn’t possibly have been better. I’ve bought and sold around a hundred properties, and Ken was absolutely the best!

I think what separates Ken from the two other realtors we used in the process of trying to sell our home over the past four years, is that he was upfront and realistic about what it would take to sell it. It may not be what you want to hear, but he will give you an honest assessment, and then allow you to make an educated decision based on his input. I truly believe that if Ken had been our realtor from the beginning, we would have sold our home for thousands of dollars more. Ken is a quality individual who will work FOR his client. He is friendly, personable and easy to work with. I highly recommend him.

Ken spent time with us to help determine where we should live and what type of house we would need. We were scheduled to close on our house in Bismarck on December 16th and were to close on our new house on the 20th. We relied on Ken to keep us updated on the building progress by furnishing photos and coordinate the help of various vendors who assisted us in choosing things such as counter tops, flooring, appliances etc. You can imagine the time that was needed to communicate all this from a distance. Thanks Ken, for your help in making our move possible…..and yes we were able to close on the 20th.

Ken was very professional and responsive and did a great job handling all aspects of my Bend real estate investment purchase. His knowledge of the Bend area was impressive and he worked hard to meet my objectives. As I was in Portland, Ken made it easy to do online remote transactions and was effective at communicating from a distance saving me from driving to Bend.

Ken Renner was our realtor when we bought a home in Bend 11 years ago and again when we recently sold our home and relocated to Portland.  Both as a buyer’s and seller’s agent, Ken did an outstanding job for us.  He is a very good listener and straightforward and open communicator, extremely knowledgeable and thorough, and an astute negotiator.  As a long time Bend resident, he has a strong familiarity with the local community as well as Bend real estate trends and home values.  As a result, he brings much more to his clients.  We can highly recommend Ken both for his professionalism and as a pleasure to work with.

If you are looking for an expert to help you buy or sell a home, you need not look any further than Ken Renner. The most valuable asset (and most difficult to find in real estate agent) is a feeling that you can trust what they say and they aren’t trying to “sell” or “steer” your decision making process. We always felt comfortable in trusting what Ken said and I’m always looking to be a skeptic. My wife and I moved to Bend from California. We only knew Bend from what we could read and see on the internet, which obviously isn’t enough to understand Bend without touring it.

Ken learned about who we were so that he could educated us on Bend. He toured us around for an entire day which gave us a better read on where we would want to live to focus on homes best suited for us. Once we found the home of our dreams, Ken was an excellent consultant and adviser to get us the home we wanted at a price we felt good with. Ken is as real of a person as you’ll meet. It was an absolute pleasure not only working with Ken but getting to know him as well. Ken, we are thankful it was you that was part of one of the the biggest and most important positive life decisions my family will ever make!

The Bohannon Family

We’ve worked with many other agents but by far, Ken was the best. He’s smart, thorough, honest, and great communicator.  I would work with him again in a heartbeat.

The Carpenter Family

Selling (and buying) a home in an ever-changing, and often unsettled housing market can be unnerving.  The expertise, professionalism and personableness that Ken displayed to us on a consistent basis was reassuring, comforting and ultimately led to the desirable sale of our Central Oregon/Sisters home.  Ken is a valued and trusted partner that can be called upon for a variety of real estate needs.  We highly recommend Ken! 

The Yoakum Famly

In the business of real estate we have learned that it all boils down to one thing.  People skills!  Ken has the ability to keep everyone at the table and close the deal even when things get tough.  Ken sold our house in under two weeks and in this market that is saying something.

The Coffee Family

Our experience with Ken Renner was impressive and professional. We purchased a duplex in 2006 and a fourplex in 2007. Each time Ken submitted several properties along with market studies and proformas. We were very impressed with his knowledge of the Central Oregon real estate market. We felt very comfortable with his recommendations. Ken is very easy to work with; he listens carefully and is very knowledgeable, which makes the whole experience enjoyable. He is a person you can trust and count on to make the process easier for you. We recommend Ken Renner to all our friends, business colleagues and relatives.

The Lemma Family

Buying a home as a retired, single woman could have been a pretty stressful experience.  Instead, thanks to Ken, it was not. I have purchased several homes in the past, but have never received better service than I received from Ken.  He was careful to make certain I understood every part of the process. He provided me with a time line indicating each step from signing the earnest money to occupying my new home.  I never once felt the least bit confused or unsure about what I was doing.  I would recommend his services to anyone buying their first, second or third home; or others, like me, who might be buying a home during their retirement years.
