You don’t hire a general practitioner to perform surgery, and you shouldn’t hire a general Bend Oregon real estate agent to handle your purchase. As a Mensan I bring a higher level of intelligence to your negotiation than my competition. I’ve worked ONLY with buyers since 2009, and know the buy side of the deal better than anyone in Bend Oregon real estate. This allows me to stay loyal to and speak frankly to the only side of the deal that matters to you – YOURS. Read more…

But why does Thom only work with buyers?
Like your average Bend Oregon real estate agent, I started as a standard broker. One day I was a listing agent— trained to make a home look its best both in person and on paper. The next day I was the critical buyer’s agent— trained to discover the underside of that pretty sheen in order to best serve his or her clients. I quickly realized that my personality, intellect, and skills are best suited to the buy side, guiding and protecting my clients from making bad decisions.
My skills are well suited to the side of Bend real estate where I can and should tell it like it is. I am a powerful asset for the people I help buy Bend Oregon real estate every day. Many are from out of town and must take a leap of faith to place their trust in a local broker. I’ve lived in Bend for 29 years, and bring real local knowledge to the purchase process.
I love to help people by giving them straight up real estate and local Bend insights they can’t get anywhere else. I tell the whole truth, not just the convenient truth, about Bend homes, neighborhoods, and the Bend Oregon real estate market in general. In doing so, I believe I can best protect my clients from purchases that may not turn out well down the road.
Numbers are your friends
I post Bend home sales statistics each month, so my buyers can see the reality of the market for themselves. My goal is to make sure that you still like and respect me AFTER the home purchase. If I succeed, you’ll tell your friends who are looking to buy a Bend home that you know an honest agent. An agent who not only helped you buy the right Bend Oregon home, but also helped you avoid the wrong ones. Expect me to be very blunt about any problems or issues I see with your intended Bend Oregon real estate purchase. I believe when we are through that you wouldn’t have it done any other way.
My clients rave about me and become friends, which is the best reward of all. Nothing makes me happier than seeing my old clients out at a pub, a restaurant, or a local event and having them call me over and thank me for my help. The real difference between my business, and that of the average Bend Oregon real estate agent, is simple.
Pure Honesty, Real Intelligence, and Long time Local Experience. That’s me, Thom Gardner, and that’s Bend Brokers Realty.
