You are an exceptional person - and successful successful businesswoman. I am honored to have worked with you.
Recalling our adventure together, I’m remembering a sampling of the ways you came through for me when I was back in California - like hauling the carpet for the stairs to the house from Home Depot; finishing cleaning the house and preparing it for the Open House; and hauling junk from the side yard to the alley for the haul away I’d arranged.
We had multiple offers and I was overwhelmed with selecting the “right” buyer. The highest bid was a riskier choice which you further vetted, helping me feel secure in my choice. Result? rA successful closing for the buyer who loved the house the most - and for me, who wished for my house to be appreciated by the incoming family - and to make a profit"

I really appreciate everything that Amanda did from start to close. Her contacts and knowledge of the Sunriver/Three Rivers market made this the easiest transaction I’ve ever been involved with as a real estate Investor!
Thank you for everything!"

"Stefanie Bright was wonderful during the entire searching and purchasing process of our home in Bend. She was so knowledgeable about the area, and took the time to understand our needs and wants. As we navigated a very competitive market, she was steady, patient, and dependable. She provided valuable insight and feedback while guiding us toward the best decision for our situation. Additionally, she collaborated well with the other professionals serving us throughout the process such as the seller's agent, the mortgage broker, the leasing agent, the home inspector, and the other service providers. She eased our concerns and worries as they arose and always made us feel like she was our advocate. We feel so grateful for how hard she worked for us, and would recommend her services to anyone looking to buy or sell in the Bend area. She is truly an exceptional realtor."

"Amanda has been our agent for over 11 years. She has been helping us to find and purchase several properties. Currently, she is helping us with the sale of one of them. Amanda has been an outstanding agent for us during all this time. My wife and I have purchased and sold properties in four cities and three states. Amanda is the only agent that we have done repeat business with. We are very much looking forward to more interactions. She has managed to exceed all our expectations despite the fact that we often communicate across many time zones and even continents while I work overseas."
anonymous (Buyer) Thu, 11 Mar 2021 22:03:48 +1000
"We have worked with about twelve realtors in four states. Amanda is the only one we refer to as “our” realtor, or would even consider working with again. When we bought our first property in Oregon, she went out of her way to work with our mortgage guy in a different state and time zone, who was trying to make a complicated financial deal work out. We were impressed by the effort she made to get that sale through.
Time and again over the past decade Amanda has looked at a property for us when we could not be in Oregon. What we appreciate most about her is the fact that she gives her honest opinion. She does not exaggerate the benefits of a property in order to make a sale. One time we asked her to look at a house and report back; she told us that it had a strange smell. Another agent might not have been so straightforward. Needless to say, we decided against that property. Likewise, when she recommended that we purchase a different property, we listened—and she was right.
We have every intention of continuing to work with Amanda as long as she will work with us. We immediately recycle all letters and flyers from other realtors in Central Oregon. Thank you, Amanda!"
Jennifer Arch, St. Louis, Missouri (Buyer) Fri, 05 Mar 2021 12:47:47 +1000
"I would recommend Stefanie Bright to all my friends and family who are looking for real estate in central Oregon.

She takes the time to get to know her clients and seems to enjoy helping people achieve their dreams. I can't say enough nice things about Stefanie and how much we appreciate her dedication and excellent customer service. She is AWESOME!"

Lara Hodge, Chandler Arizona (Seller) Fri, 18 Dec 2020 02:59:56 +1000
"I would strongly recommend Mary Hoak as a realtor of choice. She not only understands the local real estate market, but the people she must work with within the market. She fully understands all phases of the sales process. Even though a bid on the property is made, it does not necessarily mean the transaction is complete. By keeping the seller informed at all times, no surprises suddenly arise. It has been a joy to have worked with Mary."
Alan Eliason, Eugene, OR. (Seller) Sat, 12 Dec 2020 03:50:47 +1000
"As first-time homebuyers, we could not have felt more fortunate to have been guided and supported by Stephanie throughout our home buying journey. From the start, we could feel how much she cared about us as clients, and went above and beyond in every aspect.
From our initial in-person tour, Stephanie took time to listen to our needs, educate us about the buying process and tell us everything we needed to know about the market. Her attention to detail, tact and diligence throughout our search process kept us feeling reassured that we were in excellent hands navigating through the competitive housing market in Bend. Through the offer stage and negotiations, Stephanie kept close tabs on us, and guided us through the process more smoothly than we could have imagined. We're especially grateful to Stephanie and our lending team for facilitating an easy, on-time closing -- and making our purchase process fun along the way!
We're excited to refer friends and family to Stephanie - and recommend her talent to anyone in the market for a new home!"

I cannot rave about Jess enough- she was the perfect realtor for me! She has all of the qualities I needed in a realtor and made me feel at ease with such a big purchase for this single mom! I would not hesitate to recommend Jess to anyone looking for a realtor."

"Mary was helpful, kind, considerate and insightful from the beginning. The fourth house we saw on Day 1 of the search was our dream home. We were not ready to buy, but Mary walked us through a scenario that eventually brought the purchase to fruition. Mary is everything a real estate agent should be.
Thank you Mary,

"Kyle is an excellent partner in selling our home. Our property is a second home and he made every effort to assist with inspections and minor repairs on our property. Signing documents online and setting up notary and paperwork to be signed in our area. He is very knowledgeable in the dynamics of the Sunriver resort."

"Stephanie was absolutely perfect for us. She's very skilled at what she does and we wouldn't even consider using a different realtor in the future. We've asked her to sell our condo for us once it's ready because we like dealing with her so much. She's incredibly knowlegeable, thorough, and dedicated to her clients. Everytime we started feeling stressed, she was there. We fully let her run the show with making offers and negotiating and have no regrets. She was clearly keeping up on all the reports and paperwork and knew more about the house than us in the end. I trust her completely and feel lucky to have a favorite realtor now."
Aaron Elterman, Bend (Buyer) Sun, 01 Dec 2019 16:43:21 +1000

"Stefani was a terrific advocate for us which was critical as we were out of state. She was tireless in dealing with our problems and helping us get out of tight spots! She maintained decorum through it all and found a buyer when many wondered if it was possible to sell a portion of a time share at any reasonable cost.

"I guess I already gave a testimonial in the previous screen, but again I will say that Kyle is the full package. Our sale was challenging due to several offers failing as a result of the buyers not beig able to close and a poor effort by one VA appraiser. So third time was a charm and each and every time we were back on the market Kyle came forth with another
Offer with in a few days. Great Job!

Bob and Sherry Branch (Buyer) Wed, 18 Apr 2018 03:50:45 +1000
"Kyle was great to work with - quite professional and knows everything about Sunriver. He took the time to really listen to what I was looking for - and then he began the search. I felt he understood my interests as well as my concerns re: a particular type of condo and the view I was interested in.
The most important aspect - I think , for me, as a woman doing the search on my own - is that Kyle was respectful and kind and he never made me feel ill at ease, and the result was that I was able to really focus on what I wanted from Sunriver, rather than worrying about who I was working with on my real estate adventure."
Gwen Schnurman/ Sunriver, Oregon (Buyer) Sat, 07 Apr 2018 01:15:27 +1000

Gary Orzell, Alameda, CA (Buyer) Sat, 14 Oct 2017 05:10:03 +1000
"I have answered one of these questionnaires previously re Mary and Dan. They are great listeners, which means they don't get off track, they understand what is desired and act on that, don't go off on tangents. We want a house near my daughter, her husband and our grandchild, that was a singe story house. Quite simply, they nailed it. We are just around the corner from the family, the one-story house has large windows open to the back yard and a big deck to sit and look at the garden as we grow older here. We couldn't ask for more!
One of Mary's outstanding characteristics is getting right back to you with information. This can be critical."
Beverly Wilson, Bend OR. (Buyer) Wed, 04 Oct 2017 15:21:42 +1000

"Mary Hoak had been our neighbor and we were friendly for several years.
As an agent, we found her to be easy to relate to, very knowledgeable, highly committed to doing the best for us and to making the process as easy for us as possible. Her integrity was without question. We live in southern California, but Mary made the distance disappear. Mary was extremely attentive throughout the entire process , providing us with very timely updates several times a day when appropriate.
We are extremely pleased with speed and results of sale.
Mary is plain terrific! We do not think anyone could have done a better job than Mary Hoak."

T.J. Beck (Buyer) Wed, 19 Apr 2017 13:02:18 +1000
"We had previously met and started working with two other realtors over our few years of searching. What was clear was that neither of those two focused on understanding our interests, needs and taste either up front or ongoing.
We met Mary through a good friend of ours. Mary was so proactive, friendly and worked hard for us from day 1. We knew within the first few days that we knew we made the right decision.
Mary was a strong advocate for us throughout the negotiation and purchase process. We knew she had our best interests in mind.
We know that Mary had other clients besides us (of course) but her responsiveness made us feel like her #1 priority at all times."
Paul Wille, Oregon City (Buyer) Wed, 19 Apr 2017 06:32:11 +1000
"Kyle cares about fitting the house with the individual, selling the home they want and not just to make the sale.
Kyle monitored the sale at both ends of sale & purchase to make sure everything went smoothly.
Kyle recommended professional contractors for our needs during & after our purchase.
He was one of the best agents we have ever worked with. Very caring & patient."
Patrick & Susan Duffy (Buyer) Fri, 14 Apr 2017 04:01:20 +1000
"Kyle was friendly, trustworthy and professional.
After a bad experience with a property management and sale person that damaged my home and property, it was a breath of fresh air to deal with Kyle at Berkshire.
I believed his suggestions and approach for sale prep and my home sold.
I also gave positive feedback to the Oregon State real estate board for Kyle's professionalism.
thank you again Kyle, I would work with again if I have real estate needs."

"I have bought 3 properties working with Kyle Hoak. If I didn't work with Kyle I would work with Dan or Mary Hoak. They listen to what you want and go above and beyond
what is required of them. In todays market thats hard to find"
Gary Heimermann Sunriver OR (Buyer) Mon, 13 Feb 2017 10:14:15 +1000
"Working with potential buyers can be difficult at times, but when you have 2 couples, 4 individuals, with strong opinions or ideas, it can be even more challenging. Kyle Hoak was up for the challenge. After years of talking about it, we finally decided to purchase a vacation home in Sunriver with my inlaws. While my husband and I were up at the mountain skiing, my inlaws walked into Bekrshire Hathaway on a whim and met Kyle. They spent the morning discussing our situation, and gathering information re: prices and availability in the area. The following day, buried in 2 feet of snow, we all (7 of us total) ventured out to tour a number of houses. We did not purchase any of them, but it gave Kyle insight into what exactly we were (all) looking for. Kyle continued to send us listings until we found the perfect home. He took our wish list(s) into consideration and only sent ones with true potential. He was sure to email all of us when he had questions or comments, and was very good at keeping us all in the loop. Everything went smoothly from start to finish. Kyle was very thorough, professional, and also fun to work with. We enjoyed him so much that we referred him to my brother and sister-in-law to help them with the purchase of their first home. We have spent the last 9 months remodeling the home that we bought, and Kyle even came by when we were all finished to see how it all turned out. Needless to say, we would definitely recommend Kyle Hoak to anyone looking for a good realtor!"
Becky, Vancouver, WA (Buyer) Wed, 08 Feb 2017 08:05:52 +1000
"If every we were to buy another home we would only use only Kyle Hoak. He always returned our calls, texts and his communication skills are top notch. We worked with him for about 4 months before finding our home. Every now and then he still calls or texts to see how we are doing and to make sure we happy our new home. He was very professional and showed genuine care while helping us find our home.
We would recommend Kyle Hoak to any of our friends or family."

Megan Colwell, Portland (Buyer) Wed, 16 Nov 2016 09:25:48 +1000
"Kyle Hoak is willing to do whatever it takes to get the job done. He is not afraid to put in the time to do any research that I wanted done on a property. Kyle was always willing to show me properties that I wanted to look at or he wanted to show me promptly. He is one of the few real estate agents willing to work to make things happen instead of sit around waiting and hoping for things to happen."
Gary Heimermann, La Pine, OR (Buyer) Thu, 13 Oct 2016 02:46:32 +1000
"Mary and Dan Hoak will give you the best in-depth experience in the Bend - LaPine - Redmond real estate market. They listen and understand your requirements and do not waste time showing unqualified properties. They respect your opinions and act on them. They make an effective team in locating and showing investment grade real estate. I would not hesitate to strongly recommend them to anyone interested in purchasing real estate in the Bend - Redmond area"

Bud McKay. Lowell, Oregon (Buyer) Wed, 06 Jul 2016 05:45:47 +1000
"We feel so fortunate that we initially met Mary Hoak a couple years ago when we were staying in the neighborhood of a house she had listed in Sunriver that we were interested in touring. While we were not in a position to make a purchase at that time, we received valuable counsel from her that helped focus us on our ultimate goal. From that time forward we received regular notifications of houses that came up for sale that were within our price range and specifications. At no time did we feel any pressure from her or that we were wasting her time.
We toured the house we eventually purchased on a Sunday morning. After my husband and I decided we wanted to proceed with an offer, Mary Hoak met us at the house again late that afternoon. We discussed various options with her, decided on a strategy and she presented our offer to the listing agent that evening. Mary called the next morning before 8:00 to inform us that our offer had been accepted. The home had only been on the market for three days so we feel Mary's quick action and expertise was instrumental in our getting the house. We closed in 45 days and feel we had exceptional service every step of the way!
We were totally satisfied with Mary Hoak and her team every step of the way during this process. We always knew where we stood and what we should expect so there were no surprises."

"We have used Mary for our previous two homes and have always received fabulous service.
Mary was always looking into the details for us and keeping us up to date- she is a great communicator.
Mary is not your typical real estate agent or salesman- she is one of the most trustworthy, friendly and genuine people that I know. Mary and Dan make a good partnership because they both communicate well and get back to you in a timely manner- although it is so very rare that they don't answer the phone or email.
Mary worked very hard for us on the sale of our home and on finding the right home for us after we sold our current home. Mary was always looking out for what was best for us and our future, she provided feedback when needed but knew when we did not need it as well."
