Bryan Hilts was profoundly attentive and effective at getting us our second home that we desired for a real estate investment. We are so pleased with the home, location and of course price in such a ridiculously competitive market. Unlike many real estate agents, Bryan really listened to our needs and didn’t waste our time showing us houses that did not meet our requirements or were not in our price range. I am grateful for his expertise in making the whole experience a lot more easier
From our initial appointment, through the marketing & sales strategy discussions, to our eventual close, Brian and his entire team at Ladd Group where professional, thoughtful, and above all else, available to help us through a very challenging sales cycle. It’s important to understand that our home was in a middle-tier market price range that made Brian’s job of finding us a qualified buyer very difficult. Brian helped us stay calm and reasonable in our thinking and actions as we struggled t…
I have completed numerous transactions with Brian over the last few years. He is a true professional that can be counted on for his honesty and integrity. His wealth of experience and dedication to his profession is unmatched. I highly recommend him to anyone seeking help with their real estate needs. -Anonymous
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!…
Denise was very supportive and helpful during the house buying and selling process. She was knowledgeable; and her steady, low key style suited my likes and needs. I very much enjoyed working with her.
We bought a home in 2017 and I found Alice randomly on a Web site and was so happy I did. She has bent absolutely over backwards in helping us find our dream home. She has been 100% clear about all facets of buying a home and carefully explained everything to us in full detail as we meandered in and out of the home buying process! We couldn’t have done it without her!
My representative at the Ladd Group was Steve LaCrosse and in spite of talking with numerous firms and sales agents, he was the only one I felt comfortable enough to trust to represent me in a significant financial transaction. The characteristics that distinguish Steve from many is that he actually cares, listens, communicates honestly and with his intelligence, this allowed him to meet and overcome adversity in stride. After listening to my rambling about what I wanted and didn’t want, he synt…
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…
I’ve worked with Erin on a number of transactions. She made the process simple and seamless in handling all the details. I stayed informed at each stage of the process but Erin handled everything taking any stress load off my shoulders. She is fun yet very professional. I would recommend anyone to work with her from first time home buyers/sellers to seasoned real estate investors.
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.
