I write about Central Oregon and Bend Oregon Real Estate. I know Bend, having lived in the city over 30 years. My blog goals are to pass on information pertinent to Bend Oregon Real Estate and the real estate profession in general.
Last Saturday, August 29th, we decided to take an easier hike to Sisters Mirror Lake.  Located just south of Devil's Lake off South Century Drive, the Sisters Mirror Lake trail head has limited parking space, but we easily found a spot on the highway.  The 3 plus mile hike into Sisters Mirror Lak...
Luxury Home Buyers Have Found Bend Oregon We have been tracking Bend real estate sales for decades, but the summer of 2020 has provided for high end home sales that have never been seen before in the Bend market. High end homes have been part of Bend real estate since the early part of last centu...
McKenzie Pass (Hwy 242), connecting Central Oregon with the Willamette Valley, is opened for such a limited time each year that many of the available hikes and places of beauty are not as visited as those located off Cascade Lakes Highway in the 3 Sisters Wilderness. But the hikes off McKenzie Pa...
 For those who have never hiked in the Mt Jefferson Wilderness, the feeling of the forest is different than that of the 3 Sisters Wilderness. And the hike to the east side of 3 Fingered Jack through Canyon Creek Meadow is a lot of fun.  The Canyon Creek Meadow hike, which can be done on its own, ...
Bend Home Sales in July AmazingWe have been involved with Central Oregon real estate sales since 2000, and despite the boom and bust years, 2020 has proven, year to date, to be among the most phenomenal years we have ever seen - with July the pinnacle so far.Ask any Bend real estate agent what is...
We have hiked to Tam McArthur Rim in the past and we have hiked to Broken Top in the past, but we had never hiked to Broken Top from Tam McArthur Rim until last week. The hike starts at Three Creeks Lake located off Forest Road 16 (Elm Street in Sisters turns into this as you drive out of the cit...
Buyers Need a Great Agent to Work WithAsk any real estate agent right now how the market is, and the answer will be "crazy." In this time of the Covid-19 pandemic, home buyers are flocking to rural and suburban areas and buying homes faster than they can be listed.  This is resulting in a severe ...
We have lived in Central Oregon since 1985, but during this entire time we have never hiked to Camp Lake.  The start of this hike is located just outside Sisters off McKenzie Hwy on Forest Road 15 at the Pole Creek Trailhead. The hike into Camp Lake covers 7.1 miles (14.2 miles round trip), the f...
We have hiked Tumalo Mountain several times, but each has experience been enjoyable. The 4 mile round trip has 1400 foot elevation change, so it is fairly steep going up.  However, once you reach the top, the views of Mt. Bachelor, South Sister, Broken Top, and east toward the Ochocos are fabulou...
We had never hiked Black Crater on McKenzie Summit until this month and it turned out to be a wonderful experience.  Despite the burned area at the beginning of the hike, the result of the 2017 24,000 acre Millie Fire, the 7 miles up and back was easy enough, although steep in sections, and signs...
