Street dogs are taken into rescue all around the world, treated and prepared for adoption into loving homes in the Pacific Northwest.

My husband and I decided we loved Oregon and wanted to start house hunting. Since we currently live out of country Alice sent us weekly updates of houses on the market that matched our criteria. When we came into town she rearranged her schedule to accommodate us. We were impressed by the effort she put into giving us all the information we asked for and when she didn’t know, she always found the answer. Looking for a home is time consuming so the weekly updates were very helpful in monitoring t…
We recently moved to Bend and started looking for our new home. Erin Martin was one of the few brokers we contacted, however she was unique in that she intuitively understood what we were seeking and appreciated our exacting requirements. Actually Erin was the only broker that suggested we also look at new construction as a way to avoid purchasing something that we might feel would require extensive remodeling. She was right on the money! When we decided on the home we wanted it was still in the…
Bryan Hilts, a part of the Ladd Group of Cascade Sotheby’s International Realty, was an outstanding help to us in purchasing our home in Bend. We worked together for the better part of a year while we were still living in the Hillsboro area. He helped us explore most of the areas in and around Bend, refine our wants, needs, likes, dislikes, pluses and minuses of different areas we were interested in. He has a vast knowledge of Central Oregon which was a great help to us. Bryan is a very respons…
Brian has been a tremendous help to marketing Greg Welch Construction homes and showing the quality of work we can provide. From video adds to print and open communication – We recieve the highest quality of promotion a builder in this market could ask for. Thanks Brian! -Anonymous
We had a great experience working with Bryan Hilts an associate of Brian Ladd. Bryan is very knowledgeable and patient. Very professional. We looked at a broad range of homes in several different neighborhoods to get a feel for Bend and the activities associated with each neighborhood. I would recommend Bryan and anticipate continuing to do business with him.
We had an amazing experience with the Ladd Group. They were incredibly knowledgable of the local market and presented excellent data to help formulate the price point on our home. With them we were able to sell our home in 12 days, at an above asking price with multiple offers. Steve LaCrosse worked most directly with us and also helped us find our current home in addition to selling our home. He was accessible, hardworking and always had our vision and needs in mind. We highly highly recommend!…
I worked with Jaclyn Oakland from The Ladd Group in Bend, Oregon. Fabulous! Very bright, caring, any questions you have about real estate and the local area she can answer. Very motivated, but not pushy. Went out of her way to help. Also, very kind, and easy to be around!
Lily Dupont Leedom is A FIVE star broker without exception. Our process was without error or issue from opening escrow to closing. Ever appointment was met on time, and every process was explained, initiated and followed though by Lily. This is not our first home purchase by far, but Lily was the most accommodating and experienced agent we have dealt with. Highest recommendations given here.
My experience with the Ladd Group has been superior, due in large part to the efforts of Alice Fairbairn. Alice has been a true professional, and a pure delight to work with, and one of the very few people I have worked with over the years who seemed to have a genuine interest in my needs, instead of just focusing on the sale. Her associate, Allison Wiggins was also a positive part of the process. The Ladd group is indeed fortunate to have these two professionals as members of their group.
We bought a Single Family home in 2016 in Awbrey Butte, Bend, OR. Alice listened to our needs and wishes and found the perfect neighborhood. We have recently moved in and could not be happier! I would recommend her to all my friends.
