The Giants Win The Pennant October . . . the month the Giants clinched the pennant, then went on to capture the World Series in most dramatic fashion.  Seems the Bend real estate market pretty much knocked it out to the park as well.

“Dog Days of Summer” “Dog Days of Summer” . . . to me, the phrase is not normally associated with reference to Bend. Instead, it seems to conjure ancient visions of Enos “Country” Slaughter and buggy nights of mid-summer baseball in St. Louis, maybe California’s parched Central Valley, or even Forence and the Machine’s eclectic […]

The Market is Fine! The Bend real estate market is doing just fine, thanks. While we didn’t reach the vaunted 200 sale plateau in April, we came pretty close at 195.
