Bend’s Most Experienced
Buyer’s Real Estate Broker

20+ years in Bend. 9 years as a Broker. 6 years representing only Bend Home Buyers. Mensan intelligence.

Why use a generic salesperson when you can hire the buyer’s specialist at NO COST to you?



I was looking to buy a home in Bend and living in Seattle, I picked Thom on a whim from his website because I needed a buyers agent. Good choice-he was there for me every inch of the way, offering to do videos of the building progress for me and taking care of anything else that needed to be done. He would often offer to do things I didn’t even ask for. Not only did this convenience factor save me multiple trips from Seattle, but when it comes down to business Thom is also a skilled negotiator and saved me several thousands of dollars. It is obvious that he really cares about his clients. It was a great experience and I would hire him again in a heartbeat!

Why a Buyer’s Agent?

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

Buying from a Distance?

The hardest part of buying Bend real estate from afar?  Learning the truth about what’s happening on the ground while you are at 30,000 feet.  That’s where I come in.  I can set up a free portal for you on the Bend MLS system, so you can watch homes of your type in real time.  And, I make high quality videos (not phony moving pictures) of homes you identify, so you can decide whether it is worth a visit!

Regular Market Updates

I post the latest Bend sales statistics here around the 15th of every month, when they come out.  You can read my pointed comments on the ever changing Bend real estate market as you view charts covering everything from Days on Market, to average sales price and inventory, to average price per square foot and see how they have changed on a yearly basis.

Let’s talk.

Contact me via email or phone to discuss what I can do for you!  I never make you sign a contract until we make an offer, as I believe you should be sure you are going to be happy with my work ethic before you commit.  You won’t find many veteran Bend real estate brokers who will allow that, but I believe it’s the right thing to do.
