Let us help you achieve those dreams
No matter where you are in the home buying process we can help.
Just thinking about buying?
Need help finding money in your check to set aside for a down payment. We have resources for you. Maybe you are six months or even a year away from making a purchase or you just want to know if you qualify – give us a call and let us connect you with our local lenders or a budgeting expert.
Ready to purchase?
Maybe you’ve been setting money aside and are ready to start shopping. Let us connect you with a local lender to get qualified. We’ll gather a little information about your wants and desires for a home and we’ll get started. Our list of local businesses will help to make the upfront costs of buying a home a little more manageable.
Ready to sell?
We’ll start with a free cost market analysis to see what your home is worth. We can use our connections with local businesses to help you get your home ready to sell to get top dollar. Not to mention our connections with the Cascade Sotheby’s network.
We give back 10% of our net profits to help Central Oregon Youth
Why Team Sarah and Jen?
We both come to Cascade Sotheby’s with a combined 30 years of classroom teaching. We know first-hand what a demanding job educating our community’s youth can be. In the field of real estate we have a unique opportunity to help educators on their much deserved path to home ownership in this community that we love to call home.
The average salary of an educator in Oregon is $57,000 and currently, the average price of a home in Bend is $434,000. This gap creates an affordability issue. Those who have chosen a career in education deserve to have a stable living situation. Because you make a difference – we want to help!

We’ve done our research to find loan programs that can assist. Some match down payments, while others lower an interest rate so mortgage payments become affordable. Together we can create a plan to purchase your first home or move from your current home to the next one. Our local business community wants to say thank you too!
