Buying and Selling a home might very well be the most expensive purchase our clients make. We are honored that so many people have trusted us to handle their real estate transaction. Those that felt the same way have left comments below to help give others a sense of what working with us is like.

To say that Keith went above and beyond the call of duty would be an understatement. We worked with him through bids for 4 houses in Sunriver. One of them involved obtaining several contractors to bid on repair work that was needed. We needed these estimates to give us an idea of what we were getting into, Ultimately, we decided that we couldn't get that house due to the ultimate costs involved with brining it up to a good standard, We have Keith to thank for helping us through the process. In the house we ultimately purchased, the seller was not responsive at all in our negotiations. Keith kept an even demeanor throughout, and even contacted us several times after closing to make sure that we had everything we needed. Strongly recommend him if you are buying a house in the Sunriver area.

My father was a real estate agent in the same community for 30 years and had the utmost respect for Keith's character and expertise.

I first contacted Keith Petersen by phone when I was beginning a relocation search from Minnesota and considering several regions in OR.
Keith was always willing to spend time with me to bring me up to speed on what was available in Bend. He listened carefully to my criteria and asked good questions that helped me narrow and refine the types of listings that would answer my needs.
When I met him in person, he was completely focused on finding places that would suit me and as we looked at numerous offerings was always using the reactions I had to what he was showing me to present new options that better suited my sometimes shifting priorities.
It was a pleasure working with him, I never felt pressured in any way and am very pleased with the home I bought and with the level of commitment and focus Keith displayed in making sure that I had all the information and help I needed to make a good decision.
Couldn't be happier with my experience, I recommend Keith with no reservations.

He had a solution for all obstacles and, although the closing was delayed a couple of times, things were always calm and fully under control. A positive outcome was never in doubt.

He takes time to really listen to what people are looking for in a home, and gives honest observations on both the good and bad points about homes being looked at. My recent home purchase in La Pine was an amazingly smooth process, in spite of a "bump" just before closing, in large part due to Keith's hard work. He was always right there in answering questions by phone and e-mail, and ready to help with anything. It was a pleasure to work with Keith, and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell in the area. Thank you, Keith!

Keith only showed us properties within our price range and with the specific features desired (had to have a water view.)
In addition Keith is adept at working with all personality types of buyers/sellers and other real estate agents during the negotiations process. Evenings, weekends, early mornings, Keith always promptly returned my calls/texts and is such an energetic positive person. I would absolutely highly recommend Keith for your Central Oregon RE needs.

He also provided us with numerous resources to contact in anticipation of buying land and building our retirement home.

My wife Kelly and I met Keith several years ago when we had a key issue on a rental house in Sunriver. We arrived late Sunday night and could not get into the house. Keith was on call and responded instantly and left his Sunday dinner to come to our rescue. Great first impression! When we started shopping for a home to buy in Sunriver, the first person we contacted was Keith Petersen.
Our buying experience was absolutely top notch from start to finish. Every detail was handled with precise care. The characteristic that stands out the most to us was his friendly professionalism. If he says he will do something, he follows through. He responds very quickly to all communication. We highly recommend Keith Petersen as a real estate agent and will always use him in the future! We have already recommended Keith to our relatives that are considering purchasing in Sunriver.

Keith Petersen and his team were terrific. Keith counseled us on a fair asking price for our property. If we had needed a septic test, he offered to get it set up for us so that we did not have to manage it long distance. While we did not get our asking price, we chose to take the offer as it was a cash offer, no contingencies and a very good offer AND came in within 3 weeks of listing the property. Keith's team kept us informed and directed the closing to a very capable title company that worked with us long distance as we were traveling. We worked with Beverly Sherrer to connect with Keith and his team and Bev helped tremendously. She had been our realtor in the past and we were pleased to find that she was still working in the SunRiver area and was teamed with Keith. We interviewed another real estate company that was not well informed and counseled us to low ball the listing price. So pleased that we called Bev and found Keith. If you want to have a great experience selling or buying property in Central Oregon, call these folks.
